e mental discipline. People who cannot endure the
bitterness of peyote often go to various extremes to get it into the system without
having to taste it. One fairly effective method is to drink unsweetened grapefruit
juice while chewing it. The acids in the juice somewhat neutralize some of the
bitter bases. Another method is to grind the dried buttons in a pepper grinder and
pack the pulverised material into OOO capsules which are washed down with
warm water. This is an effective method but it can take 20 capsules or more to
get a 350mg dose of mescaline. Often people will boil the buttons in water for
several hours to make a concentrated tea. A cup of this decoction can be
swallowed in a few hasty gulps. Another preparation that is occasionally used is
a jello-type dessert made with the fresh or dried plant. If spoonfulls are
swallowed whole the gelatine serves as a sort of shield protecting the tastebuds
from contact with the bitter material. It also slows down the the absorption of the
drug in the digestive tract. This can be of value. It is generally recommended that
anyone consuming peyote or mescaline ingest it gradually during a period of an
hour or take two half doses 45 minutes apart. This is done to reduce the shock of
the alkaloid to the system. Nausea or queasiness is sometimes experienced half
an hour or so after taking peyote or mescaline. This usually passes in less than
an hour. A sip of grapefruit juice will sometimes dispel the sick feeling. During the
peyote ceremony Indians encourage vomiting rather than restraint if the urge
presents itself. Throwing up, they believe, is apurging of both physical and
spiritual ills. Most tribes fast for at least a day before taking peyote. This can also
help to minimize gastric distress. One should not have eaten for at least 6 hours
before taking either mescaline or peyote.
A method which avoids both the bitterness and the nausea is the rectal infusion.
8-16 grams of dried peyote is ground into a fine powder and boiled in a pint of
water for 30 minutes. It is then strained and further boiled to reduce it's volume to
one half pint. After cooling, this is taken as an enema using a small bulb syringe
and retained for at least two hours. If there is any fecal matter in the lower bowel,
a small cleansing enema should be taken and thoroughly expelled before having
the peyote infusion. Otherwise much of the drug will be taken up by the feces
and later voided.
FINDING AND PICKING PEYOTE
The peyote cactus may be found in many areas throughout the Chihuahuan
Desert from central Mexico to southern Texas. When a site is found where
peyote grows it usually does so in abundance. Sometimes it grows in open sunlit
places, but more often it is found in clusters under fairly large shrubs, among
mesquite or creosote bushes or in the shade of large succulents.
The best time to harvest any cactus is after a long dry spell. The worst time is
during or after a rainy period.

Adaptation-12: Adding a Humidity Gauge to the Terrarium
A humidity gauge can be added to the terrarium. Especially for
Styrofoam coolers, it is easy to cut out a window in the side of the
cooler and insert a combination humidity/temperature gauge. The
gauge should be put below the drip shield so that it is showing the
actual conditions where the mushrooms are growing. In reality, the
conditions will not vary much inside the terrarium, but there is no
reason to add inaccuracy. The gauge can be glued in place with
silicon glue. Make sure the vents in the gauge are only open to the
inside of the terrarium and not the outside world. The combination
gauge can be got very inexpensively at any department store.
Check all the gauges on the shelf. Most likely, some will deviate
greatly from the rest. You want to pick one that seems to be accurate!
Bare in mind that usually there are several different brands of gauges
available. Check and see what various gauges from different brands
are reading. Use some common sense to eliminate the obviously
inaccurate gauges. Even so, you are making the assumption that at the
high end of the humidity spectrum the chosen gauge will be accurate.
Remember that absolute accuracy is not so important as knowing the
relative conditions inside you terrarium over time. Even if you gauge
is off a little bit, it will tend to be off in the same direction all the
time. The easiest way to use a gauge during the growing process is to
know what it used to read during previous growing cycles and
keeping close to that reading. If a problem does develop, it will
provide a clue which direction you need to move.
A humidity gauge is very helpful during the growing cycle, but it
takes up valuable real-estate inside the terrarium. This gets it out of

Adaptation-13: Use of Fish Tank Heater to Raise Humidity.
If you are using the fish tank bubblier system to create humidity in
your terrarium, you can use a submersible fish tank heater to help
raise the humidity. You can place the fish tank heater in the water and
use it to raise the water's temperature 10 or 15 degrees F. over
ambient. This will make it easier for the air bubbling through the
water to absorb moisture, thus raising the humidity. The higher you
set the temperature of the heater, the more humid

stirring bar bangs too violently in the flask, remove it with a magnet
rather than break the flask.
Pour the contents of the flask into a 250 ml sep funnel, and drain
the lower layer (water solution of lysergic acid hydrazide tartarate)
into a 250 ml Erlenmeyer flask wrapped in foil. To the ether layer still in
the sep funnel, add 50 ml fresh decimolar tartaric-acid solution, and
shake. Examine the water layer for the presence of lysergic acid
hydrazide with a black light. If there is a significant amount, add this
also to the Erlenmeyer flask.
Place the magnetic stirring bar in the Erlenmeyer flask, and stir it
moderately. Monitor the pH of the solution with a properly calibrated
pH meter, and slowly add .5M (20 grams per liter) sodium hydroxide
solution until the pH has risen to the range of 8-8.5. Higher pH will
cause racemization. The freebase is then extracted from the water
solution with chloroform. Two extractions with 100 ml of chloroform
should complete the extraction, but check a third extraction with the
black light to ensure that most all of the product lysergic acid
hydrazide has been extracted.
The chloroform extracts should be evaporated under a vacuum in a
500 ml flask to yield the product. This is best done by rigging the 500
ml flask for simple distillation, and applying an aspirator vacuum to
remove the chloroform. Assume that the yield from this procedure will
be about 5 grams of lysergic acid hydrazide if ergot was the crop used.
Assume that the yield will be about 7.5 grams if seeds were used.
The difference here is due to the fact that in ergot, the amides

are largely composed of substances in which the portion lopped off is
about as large as the lysergic acid molecule. Seeds tend to be more
conservative as to their building upon the lysergic molecule. A careful
weighing on a sensitive scale comparing the weight of the flask before
and after would give a more exact number.
Both of these choices are really very poor, because lysergic acid
hydrazide, unlike most other lysergic compounds, crystallizes very
well with negligible loss of product. At the hydrazide stage of LSD
manufacture, one has a perfect opportunity to get an exceedingly pure
product, freed from clavine alkaloids and other garbage compounds
carried in from the extraction of the complex plant material.
I refer the reader to US patent 2,090,429 issued to Albert
Hofmann and Arthur Stoll, the dynamic duo of lysergic chemistry,
dealing with lysergic acid hydrazide. In this patent, they describe in a
rather excited state how they were able to produce pure lysergic acid
hydrazide from tank scrapings that were otherwise impure junk.
Lysergic acid hydrazide has the following properties: it dissolves
easily in acid, but is very difficultly soluble in water, ether, benzene
and chloroform. In hot absolute ethanol it is slightly Hostilis Hostilis Root
