    Prickly Pear

    Yes. Different species might be more or less sour and lemony and you might even find some with crunchy calcium oxalate druses, but all are technically edible. And the reports of mescaline rich Opuntias are myths borne out of a quickly retracted typo, so you dont have to worry about turning the corner and being surprised by God ;)

    Isopropyl extractions

    If your cacti are of a species rich in hordenine and devoid of illegal things you could brew, concentrate, adjust pH to 9.75 (hordenine is both an acid and a base), saturate in salt, extract the hordenine freebase with isopropanol, and purify/convert from there. It could be fun, at least. Hordenine is used by the bodybuilder and nootropic types and the price seems to have been on the increase.

    Pesticide made from Nicotiana rustica

    Most nicotine is destroyed in combustion. Conversely its very bioavailable by skin absorption or drinking the stuff. Back when I grew it I would get anywhere from a very strong buzz to mild 'green tobacco sickness' just from handling the leaves and flowers of N. tabacum, N. rustica, or N. gossei and that was while I was a smoker. Two drops of pure nicotine or one cigar has enough nicotine to kill a non-smoker if taken orally. Its one of the poisons the body can build a tolerance to, though. You'll know if your being exposed to too much if it feels like you drank too much coffee, more exposure will result in increased restlessness, nervousness, as well as nausea. Thats as far as I ever got but things only get worse from there according to the literature. 'Green tobacco sickness' is the actual name of the illness caused by excessive skin exposure to tobacco plants, it happens a lot in growers and harvesters. It takes some minutes for the nicotine to fully soak in. If it feels like you drank coffee when you didnt, go wash with soap and stay away from the tobacco plants for a few hours.

    Please ID this grafting stock

    Looks a fair bit like Selenicereus testudo
  13. I woke up with a painfully swollen hand after having been stabbed in the knuckle by a T. peruvianus yesterday. So I responded by giving my cacti fertilizer so they'll grow even nastier spines. I doubt non-cactus growers would understand
