What Is Huachuma?

What is Huachuma? Huachuma is the indigenous name for the San Pedro Cactus, an ancient & sacred medicine native to the Andes mountains. The Huachuma cactus, while known as a master teacher plant medicine from pre-Incan times, still holds great power and significance in our modern world. While lesser known to the world than teacher plant medicines like Ayahuasca or magic mushrooms, Huachuma is perhaps one of the most under-acknowledged master plant medicines in respect to the true power and healing abilities it holds for all of humanity. Incredible for opening the heart, softening resistances, lifting the spirits & traversing realms of ancestral patterning, the huachuma cleans the body, mind and spirit in a different way from Ayahuasca. While a person can purge and have physical releases on huachuma, it is not nearly as common, and is not thought specifically to be a purgative plant. It's visionary qualities, which help us to connect with the essence of spirit and the nature of reality are widely due to the plants mescaline content, which allow us to access different parts of our brain and awareness, perhaps previously inaccessible in daily life.
