One of the most intriguing things that makes Lophphora Fricii an interesting cactus of the genus Lophphora, is the fact that it has the least amount of mescaline. In other words, if anyone consumes it as a recreational drug, they might not feel anything at all. According to a report conducted on all the different cacti in this genus, Lophphora Fricii has 1.1mg of mescaline on every gram of its weight. This is the reason why this cactus is also known as ‘false peyote’. However, even if it does not contain the psychedelic alkaloid mescaline, in some parts of the world, the false peyote is still consumed as a hallucinogen.
Therefore, if you don’t want to experience the psychedelic effects of a cactus, and are looking for something that is less psychoactive, you can go with Lophphora Fricii. Out of all the interesting facts about false peyote, the most interesting one is that it has a higher number of ribs. This can help anyone to identify the false peyote.
