Trichocereus pachanoi Britton & Rose

Echinopsis pachanoi (syn. Trichocereus pachanoi), the San Pedro cactus, is a fast-growing columnar cactus native to the Andes Mountains of Ecuador and Peru between 2000–3000 m in altitude.[1][2] It is also found in Argentina, Bolivia and Chile,[3] and it is cultivated in other parts of the world. Uses for it include traditional medicine and traditional veterinary medicine, and it is widely grown as an ornamental cactus. It has been used for healing and religious divination in the Andes Mountains region for over 3000 years.[4] It is sometimes confused with its close relative, Echinopsis peruviana (Peruvian Torch Cactus).

Echinopsis pachanoi is native to Ecuador and Peru. Its stems are light to dark green, sometimes glaucous, with a diameter of 6–15 cm (2.4–5.9 in) and usually 6–8 ribs. The whitish areoles may produce up to seven yellow to brown spines, each up to 2 cm (0.8 in) long; the plant is sometimes spineless.[2] The areoles are spaced evenly along the ribs, approximately 2 cm (0.8 in) apart.[3] Echinopsis pachanoi is normally 3–6 m (10–20 ft) tall and has multiple branches, usually extending from the base.[2] The tallest recorded specimen was 12.2 metres (40 ft) tall.[3] White flowers are produced at the end of the stems; they open at night. The flowers are large, around 19–24 cm (7.5–9.4 in) long with a diameter of up to 20 cm (7.9 in). There are black hairs along the length of the tube leading to the flower. Oblong dark green fruits are produced after fertilization, about 3 cm (1.2 in) across and 5–6 cm (2.0–2.4 in) long.[2]

Echinopsis pachanoi has a long history of being used in Andean traditional medicine. Archeological studies have found evidence of use going back two thousand years, to Moche culture.[5] Although Roman Catholic church authorities after the Spanish conquest attempted to suppress its use, this failed, as shown by the Christian element in the common name "San Pedro cactus" – Saint Peter cactus. The name is attributed to the belief that just as St Peter holds the keys to heaven, the effects of the cactus allow users "to reach heaven while still on earth."[6]


San Pedro (Huachuma) is a teacher plant (Grandfather medicine) that grows in the andes of South America. It give us the opportunity of stopping the stream of thoughts and reconnect us to the presence that emerge of the stillness of nature. Just by dwelling in that state of being we are able to connect to our true divine self within and feel the interconnection to all that is, in a level that you will never forget.

It is a magic plant with consciousness expanding abilities that take us to the mystery through the silence where all understanding is born. Grand father medicine that help us to heal, grow and awaken to higher states of consciousness and realizing that we are all One.

The Huachuma or San Pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi, T. peruvianus and other species), the sacred holistic cactus and visionary teacher plant of the South Americas, is especially associated with the shamans and healers (curanderos) of the Peruvian Andes.

It has been used since ancient times, and in Peru the tradition has been unbroken for over 3,000 years. At the Jaguar temple of “Chavín de Huantar,” in the northern highlands of Peru there is a a carving showing a mythological being holding a San Pedro which is almost 3,500 years old.

The principal entheogenic alkaloid in the San Pedro cactus is mescaline, concentrated in the green outer skin of the cactus among other thirty akaloids that have been isolated. Today it is best known in Perú by it’s post-colonial name San Pedro, a reference to the Christian saint who holds the keys to the Gates of Heaven.
