Nicotiana glauca – Tree tobacco

 

 

The tree tobacco is a nightshade and at the same time a close relative of the common tobacco. It is a wild, rarely occurring tobacco-species that is smoked by the Navajo-Indians during their holy ceremonies. It contains, as opposed to the common tobacco, no nicotine. The tobacco tree is comparatively easy to cultivate and a worth-mentioning alternative to the expensive taxed and usually with often harmful “flavor enhancers” mixed nicotine-containing tobacco.
