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.

Great product, very potent. Will order more for blending purposes. This is a great leaf to mix in to other nonaromatics to boost the nicotine levels. I have had best results mixing with Burley or English blends that are lacking in Vitamin N. As long as this is available I will be a loyal customer. Just ordered another half pound, this time I am planning on aging it alongside Perique in the jar, will post back with updates on the results.

Placing another order for the Black Friday Sale. My last batch was phenomenal. I went with my Rustica/Perique blend, but tried Greywolf's suggestion of blending with the Virginia. Added that to my blend, and the end result was even better. The Virginia really helped it get a good burn ratio and added another subtle flavor that rears its head from puff to puff. Thanks for the advice!
I used 1lbs of Rustica, 1/4lbs of Virginia Organic and 7oz of Perique. Talk about a strong nicotine buzz!
