How to Use:
Put powder (2 tablespoons) in a big pot and add lemon juice or vinegar to the water to drop the PH down a bit so that the mescaline is more water soluble. Then boil the liquid down until you have around a cup or so of liquid left. Then strain away the plant material using coffee filters, a cloth cloth or even a clean sock. Whatever works for you. Then after you’ve strained out the plant material add the green liquid back to your cooking vessel and continue to boil down until you have a rather small volume of liquid. There is no exact right ammount to get down to but just know it’s disgusting in taste so your probably not gonna wanna be drinking a large volume of it. About a shot of glass each person is fine. This process takes a few hours.
Mix it in with your favorite drinks. Add lemon and honey for better taste.
