The San Pedro cactus grows mainly in Ecuador and Peru and it's grown for ornamental purposes all around the world, in fact, if you look around, you'll probably find one in a garden or park nearby
The name of San Pedro was given by the south-american tribes due to the mythological relation of saint Pedro and the powers of the animals, the strong characters and the true and supernatural beings.
This cactus is rich in mescaline: according to Albert Hofmann and Richard Schultes, the dry tissue contains 2% and the fresh tissue 0.12%, although in my own experience and the information shown on the internet the quantity of mescaline in San Pedro varies greatly, and there's no apparent characteristics that tell if the cactus is mescaline-abundant or not.
