The Mayo people made tortillas from the ground seeds mixed with some corn meal flour.
The Mayo would use Pachycereus pectin-aboriginum for healing.
The way they did this was to cut out a piece of the trunk and rub it on wounds to inhibit bleeding.
To treat a sore throat, juice was pressed from the stem of the Pachycereus pecten-aboriginum; or the juice was drank as a tonic after it cooled from cooking.
