I think I might have heard of it...

maybe...

It's a confirmed "Lost Peyote/Revered Cactus".

I wouldn't eat Astrophytum myriostigma tho...

But bioassy are always interesting... ;)

To eat it?

I think you go nuts honestly.

I would suspect it would be much like a Brugmansia intoxication... that's what I've heard at least.

It could be very dangerous, I myself promote human bioassys of such cacti, while other strongly denouce them...

Please check out my thread on the subject, and do some searchs then you can make an informed choice for yourself after futher research.

Yes i will indeed. I haven't heard alot about this guy, i'm still ordering him for my entheogen collection regardless if i intend to eat it or not. Regardless i would love to learn more about this cacti, and what effects it may hold if one would injest it.

Nobody really knows... that's why it is my opinion that human bioassys are very important part of the scientific study of these cacti.

Could you imagine if all western scientist had decided to never ingest Lophophora!

they are a very collectible cactus! if you are eating them, make sure they are not very "special" you may just be eating a $100 cactus and not even know it.

If one was to decide to do such a thing (human bioassys) how much would you think to start off with? I know its hard to say considering no one knows what even a dose would be considering finding someone who has even eatin one seems to be a challenge.

i would begin with a few 4-5in cacti, and start with a half of one and work my way up.

I think that preparation could be a real problem, they're rock hard ! I'd like to hear the results of an Astrophytum M. bioassay -- Ed.
