(Nicotiana rustica) Widely used in Native American ceremonies, generally without inhaling. Several times higher in nicotine than common smoking tobacco. The dried leaves are used as an insecticide for greenhouse insects such as aphids, mites, and whiteflies. Protect young seedlings from flea beetles.

We used to sell this variety as Midewiwan Sacred Tobacco, but when we asked folks at the Center for Cherokee Plants about it, their input was that when something's for sale, it shouldn't be called sacred.
