The name of this genus comes from the Greek “lophos” (crest) and “phoreo” (to carry), and it includes 4 species of green, blueish or grey button-like cacti with large tap roots. Their native region extends from the southwestern United States through central Mexico. These cacti, in particular Lophophora williamsii, contain mescaline and other toxic alkaloids, which are used in indigenous rituals.
