The San Pedro cactus is the term used to identify the different species of genus Trichocereus like the Trichocereus panachoi, Trichocereus peruvianus as well as the Trichocereus bridgesii. If you are wondering how you’ll be able to identify one cactus type from another then you should definitely take time to research on the different types so that when you are going to need to check out the difference and the similarities.
These species belong to the family Cactaceae and the tribe of the Trichocereae. Trichocereus panachoi, Trichocereus bridgesii, and Trichocereus peruvianus are considered the botanical name for each type of cactus. The English name for these cacti would be San Pedro cactus.
Basically, these San Pedro cacti can be described as tall columnar cacti. This type of cactus can actually reach as large as 4 to 5 meters or perhaps more. The diameter of the San Pedro cactus can reach up to 10 inches in diameter. However, this is not the standard measurement as the diameter of the cactus can actually vary. These types of cactus are also multi branched and these will generally have dense growth. On the other hand, the Trichocereus peruvianus or otherwise known as the Peruvian torch is quite similar when it comes to appearance to the San Pedro cacti yet it will have darker as well as longer spines and this cactus will grow faster and contain higher level of alkaloid. The Achuma or the Trichocereus bridgesii is a fast growing columnar cactus that can actually grow up to 5 meters. The Achuma or the Trichocereus bridgesii usually brances at the base part of the cacti. The distinct characteristic of this type of cactus would be its tough drooping spines that can actually grow up to four inches long.
San Pedro cactus or Trichocereus panachoi has been utilized for its hallucinogenic effects. People in South America have long been using the Trichocereus panachoi and now it has reached different lands and soil all over the world. San Pedro cacti contains hallucinogenic alkaloid mescaline that is considered a powerful substance that can alter the state of mind that can trigger hallucinations for visual and auditory aspects. Other species under the San Pedro family that contains the power hallucinogenic substance would be the Achuma or the Trichocereus bridgesii as well as the Peruvian Torch or the Trichocereus peruvianus.
