Saguaro cactus is a vital source of food and even shelter for the Tohono O'odham. The spikes are often used as sewing needles. Even the ribs are used to make harvesting tools. The Native Americans used them for construction. It's considered to be rather rare when compared to others. This is not a store and this cactus is not for sale here. The information is for educational purposes only. See my sources in the referenes section at the bottom of every page These are really cool to have around like pets, and their self sufficient and hearty nature makes them a breeze to take care of. I'm a huge fan of wikipedia and peer reviewed journals, and you really can't get to a better source than the source, if that makes sense. With that in mind, I always suggest checking out the official wikipedia page on anything and everything, including Saguaro Cactus


Chemical Constituents


This cactus does contain some rather fascinating phytochemicals. These compounds include four tetrahydroisoquinoline alkaloids: carnegine, salsolidine, gigantine and arizonine. It also contains Salsolidine, 3-methoxytyramine and 3,4-dimethoxypenethylamine. Dopamine is also found in the fresh plant material! Yes indeed, a lot of people are unaware of the fact that plants produce complex phytochemicals, which show medicinal properties under real scientific laboratory conditions, as hints the study which tells us everything we know about them, "phytochemistry". If anyone tells you there is no scientific research into a plants medicinal properties, they don't know better. Tell them about phytochemicals! The Ancient Of Days is an amazing creator, and every human chemist most likely experiences excessive envy of his superior organic creations.


It's pretty amazing to think that a cactus can contain dopamine. Dopamine is an essential neurochemical found in human beings. This is more common than you think. Another plant commonly called Cowage also contains a neurochemical called serotonin. That's not a hint that you should consume this, I don't know all of the chemicals in it. The relationship between plants and pubchem is fascinating though. The list goes on when you actually conduct the research. Thanks to the scientific phytochemical studies on these ethnobotanicals we can factually understand prove the complex creation of ourselves and the other life forms around us. The blue prints within the plants dna and various phytochemicals designs indicates divine intervention in their intelligent design. We owe all thanks to the Most High.
