Is Pure Peyote Holistic?
Pure Peyote is holistic, as nature intended.
Pure Peyote is the full spectrum of medicinal compounds and plant material of Lophophora williamsii. No extraction, concentration or isolation has been performed. Nothing removed, nothing added.
We believe in Nature’s formula – it’s been healing for thousands of years.

Pure Peyote is végan.
Agricultural growing components (soil, nutrients, etc) are végan.
In addition, all offices and buildings of Pure Peyote are végan territory – which includes food, clothing and equipment.
Is Pure Peyote sustainably grown?
Pure Peyote is grown in Canada. Due to Canada’s weather conditions cultivation takes place outdoors and indoors. We provide the cacti ideal temperatures, light, air circulation and water for a stress-free growing environment. Power used is hydro-electric. Water is from Soames Point prized for it’s purity. And the air is 100% Sunshine Coast BC fresh.
Along with the natural elements, we believe Respect, Wonder and Love are vital components of the growing conditions. Over the long growing period we nourish them and in turn they nourish us.
Sustainable harvesting means cutting off the mature peyote button while leaving the essential elements of the plant to regenerate.
We know that wild peyote is under threat. We support the efforts of all who are working to save the sacred gardens. Our hope is that Pure Peyote may take some pressure from the wild, while helping to illuminate the importance of this medicinal plant.
