Are there any cactus that are poisonous?

    I have never heard of a cactus that is poisonous, but there is a plant called the Pencil Cactus that isn’t actually in the cactus family, that has a toxic white sap. The Pencil Cactus is native to Africa, but many landscapers in the southwest use it. The sap is only hazardous in moderate amounts, but it can irritate the skin and eyes if you come in contact with it.

    Yes. You might have heard of the peyote cactus, native to South U.S. and Mexico known for its hallucinogenic properties. Other symptoms include: illusions, hallucinations, headache, pupil dilation, blurred vision, muscular relaxation, dizziness, circulatory depression, severe stomach pain with vomiting and diarrhea.
