I don't know the original source, but I had a screencap of how to pull powder from the San pedro. Really want to try it and boiling and straining seems really inefficient and like a waste.

I think he's asking how to dry San Pedro into powder (not any chemical extract) instead of boiling and making tea. I just made tea a few days ago and never did the powder. It seems like a royal pain in the ass to do since the stuff, as a succulent, binds water to viscous nasty liquid inside the plant. I have no idea how do to it sadly.

Oh if that's all he's asking then that is easy as hell! You remove the spines and the inner white pulpy core. Cut the dark green skin into "chips" and place them in a dehydrator with about an inch of spacing between chips.

If you don't own a dehydrator and want to go full on DIY look up Alton Brown's "Good Eats" clip on how to make jerky. He shows you how to build a very effective dehydrator on the cheap.

Once all the chips are cracker dry you can just grind them up in a coffee grinder, or if you wanna go old school a mortar and pestle, but leaving them as whole chips instead of powdering them will increase their shelf life.

Is not good for fibrous plants... unless wanting to make rope.

it'll work with cracker dry cactus skin, you just need a little elbow grease.

Also you don't usually use the fibrous interior of the plant as it contains very little to no alkaloid content, just the outer dark green skin.

to further clarify, the part of the cactus you want to use is the thin dark green layer BETWEEN the inner light green/white fibrous core and the clearish-white waxy protective layer

it is actually quite a small portion of the cactus once you've got it all separated out but that's where the good stuff is
