Its range is from the Chihuahuan and Sonoran Desert, to Colima, and southern California.
The Pachycereus is leafless and can grow up to 15 m high.

The fruit can be eaten raw or cooked and can be made into a syrup or preserves, like jam and has been used to make wine.
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.

A multi-purpose plant from which the juice of the young branches is employed by the Tarahumara to make the narcotic beverage cawe.
