Nicotiana Rustica, someitmes known as Wild Tobacco, thuoc lao, mapacho and other regional names, is an incredibly strong variety of whole leaf tobacco with up to 9x more nicotine then other varietys of whole leaf tobacco.
Whereas most types of tobacco are of the species Nicotiana tabacum and have from 1%-3% nicotine, this Nicotiana Rustica leaf often comes in around 9%. In other words, it is an entirely different species of tobacco, and it can be up to 9 times stronger. This makes for a great pesticide.
The high nicotine content of the Nicotiana Rustica leaf is a major part in why it is so popular; Often used by natives for many ceremonial purposes, this tobacco also makes a great pesticide. Also popular in many foreign markets under the names Thuoc Lao, and Mapacho.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"First of all let me say thank you for providing a great service! All my orders have been packed well and shipped in a timely manner. I bought the starter kit w/ DVD which was very helpful, than upgraded to buying some more lbs of PA cigar tobacco for rolling fun.
As part of a cigar club i belong too, I had the opportunity to present my hand rolled cigars and give a demonstration to the club members. It was a resounding success and I've recommended to them all - buy the starter kit! It's loads of fun.
I got very positive results when I gave out the cigars and gave a presentation on it. People come back asking to take seconds! I'm all out of cigars - better get back to rolling!
