I have obviously grown the plant many times, but I have never understood how to effectively and easily turn the green living leaf, or the dried green, currently hanging in my closet leaves into something that is actually smokeable, or consumable by another means, such as chew or snus. Has anyone experience with doing this with nicotiana rustica?
I have read that is a lot more difficult to make it usable because it has such a high amount of nicotine, increased levels of beta-carbolines (MAOIs) and has much thicker leaves making it difficult to process.

This isn't necessarily about curing it, but just some way to use it without risk of harsh smoke or plant material - or risk of overdose. Nicotine is actually very very toxic, I think it takes something like 100 or so milligrams to kill an adult?
I am unsure, but I bet long term negative problems arise at much lower levels.


I don't smoke or use any sort of tobacco product but this has always interested me. I probably ought to just give it away for free as it is - but I doubt many people would want it.

People are definitely interested!  I just got mine from a shroomery member doing a contest.   Grin
But I'm new to that plant so I couldn't give you any answers.

Wow, How are those made? Just roll them up and let them dry, or something pretty complicated?

I usually just hang the leaves in bundles in a shed or similar area.
