History Channel explores the Chavin people's use of San Pedro
Show title: The Real Temple of Doom

Josh Bernstein, on his "Digging for the Truth" show, buys San Pedro in Peru. That night he attends a Curendera's healing ceremony.

In this show, titled "The Real Temple of Doom" Josh traces the use of San Pedro Cactus from the ancient Chavin1 culture more than 2,500 years ago to present day folk medicine.
1) The Chav�n were an early civilization that existed in present-day Peru. This Early Horizon civilization is believed to have developed around 900 BC and died out around 200 BC. The Chav�ns laid the cultural foundation for the other Peruvian civilizations to come. Info from Wikipedia:

Josh finds the San Pedro cactus depicted in stone
carvings inside sacred temples of the Chavin.
