Bits & Pieces

The "Bits & Pieces" section is intended for random snippets of information which don't fit

  • Lophophora diffusa
    L. diffusa is very similar in appearance to L. williamsii, and also goes by the common name "Peyote". Mescaline has been found in L. diffusa in minute amounts by some researchers, although others have found none. Generally, it is agreed that quantities are so low as to be inactive...though the presence of any could technically make it illegal1. Interestingly, some people report that L. diffusa is definitely active, suggesting that other alkaloids are responsible.
