    How do you feel about the tobacco plant? Would you smoke cigarettes if they were all only consistent of jungle tobacco?

    Only jungle tobacco is usualy too strong to be used as a normal cigarete. Mapacho is never smoked normally and only used in specific situations.
    a form of tobacco that is used regularly by the indigenous from the brasilian amazon is called Rapé, they turn the tobacco into a powder, mix it with ashes from specific trees, and blow it in the nose.
    Rapé is a powerful medicine, a healer and teacher plant. I will soon open a topic only for rapé, and will post pics, videos, and some info on how to make it!

    Tobacco is one of the sacred plants of the Amazon and is used for a variety of reasons. Some shaman use it for purgative purposes in preparation for an ayahuasca ceremony. I took part in several tobacco purges and believed it enhanced my subsequent sessions with ayahuasca. Ronald Rivera a shaman from Pucallpa talks about the purge in this video I made:
