Bought a big cut (30cm) of peruvian Torch, it arrived 11 days after I order, although I think that had more to do with the postal service than the provider. It was my first experiance with mescalin cactus. I chewed it raw has the cut had no more taste than a cucumber. I removing thornes and the white skin, making sure to remove as little of the meet as possible. Very little effect, some bodely sensation ca 2 hrs after concuption. I would love trying it again and would not probably choose this wender. I guess I just got unlucky with my cut as they can vary a lot in mescalin content.
