Type Species

Trichocereus scopulicolus is a type of cactus native to Bolivia, which contains psychedelic compounds. Many claim this species contains mescaline, but there has never been any official studies done, so any speculation about its properties are without solid scientific support.


This cactus is synonymous with Trichocereus scopulicola, and its scientific name is Echinopsis scopulicola.

Plant Description

This cactus grows 3-4 meters tall, and 8-10 cm in diameter, and is also noted for its unusually short spines.
