What hallucinogenic substances are found in the peyote cactus?

There are many substances that lead up to the high caused by peyote cactus. But the main substance that causes the high is Mescaline. I personally wouldn't go for Peyote as it is extremely long to make and extremely expensive to buy made. 3 Grams is the usual dose but it takes about 10 years to fully grow one tiny matured peyote. I used to be interested in this cactus before i found this out. Try ayahuasca. It takes a long time to make but the ingredients are quite cheap and easy to cultivate. :D
