The San Pedro cactus contains the compound mescaline:
a naturally occurring psychedelic with a long history of human use.It can also be found in the peyote cactus and several other cactus species. San Pedro has been used for thousands of years
all across central and south america for spiritual use.
Mescaline’s main effects have been compared to other psychedelic substances like LSD and Psilocybin mushrooms:
Open and closed eyed visuals, euphoria, and more depending on the user. These effects can last for 10-12 hours. I believed I was dwelling in a world that had lost their sense of true spirituality.
I hoped that the spirit of the San Pedro cactus could guide me and teach me and thing or two.
ABOUT THE CREATOR OF THIS FILM: I create immersive films and intimate music that explicitly express the nature of the human psychedelic experience in mediums everyone can enjoy, absorb, integrate, and digest the world over. I like to use the visual and auditory mediums of filmmaking and musical engineering to legitimize the practical application of psychedelic substances because storytelling has been the most effective way we have expressed and conceptualized extremely complicated ideas throughout the existence of our species. I believe what psychedelics need to be legitimized and gain the attention for it to be widely accepted is for it to be executed through a cultural movement. I believe the continued legitimizing of practical applications of psychedelic tools will be extremely important and tremendously helpful in assisting the future of humanity for: the birth and expansion of new and novel ideas, comprehending the extreme complexities of the self, expanding our cognitive capacities, understanding how we influence reality at the quantum level producing for ourselves as creators, healing personal trauma in our current mental health crisis, spiritual awakenings, cultivating visions, rooting ourselves in truth, understanding the dissolving and reconstitution of the self as we learn, experience, and grow in the increasingly rapid change happening in the frames of time as we approach singularity... creativity: in arts, filmmaking, music, graphic design, animation, mathematics, other forms of engineering, and so much more, and finally, coming closer to understanding the ultimate nature of our reality.
