Mescaline Addiction Treatment
What Is Mescaline?
It is a dark-brown powder ground from “buttons” of the Mexican cactus peyote, one of the psychotropic plants. Because of its mind-fogging and mind-boggling effects, the peyote has been known among Mexico’s Yaqui Indians as: the bruja’s brew. It may well be that: a witch’s potion.
The active chemical of peyote, the alkaloid mescaline, was isolated in 1896 from the peyote cactus, lophophora williamsii. The drug was named after the Mescalero Apaches of the American great plains.
How Is Mescaline Taken?
Mescaline is generally taken orally. But like, LSD, it may be injected. The average dose is: 350 to 500 miligrams. This yields a “high” lasting 5 to 12 hours. Because of its bitter taste, mescaline is often taken with tea, coffee, milk, orange juice, soda, or soft drink. The peyote button itself has a vile, fibrous taste.

Mescaline’s Physical Effects
Apart from its cardiovascular effects, which speed up the heartbeat and increase the blood pressure, it also: dilates the eyes’ pupils, increases the blood sugar level, heightens the body temperature, causes heavy perspiration and nausea.
In large doses, mescaline lowers the blood glucose. In such cases, the user may suffer bloody diarrhea and fall into unconsciousness.
Lethal doses produce convulsions, breath-arrests and heart failures. Death is due to respiratory failure. This is why mescaline addiction treatment is so important!
