Nicotiana rustica (Sacred Tobacco, Mapacho,
Tobacco was probably the most well known plant
in the Americas. This was a very different tobacco from
that commercially available today (Nicotiana bigbucks).
Tobacco was used for hundreds of generations and virtually
every native american tribe used tobacco; as an offering
to the spirits when planting or gathering food, for
healings and for ceremonies.
The sacred uses of tobacco are different for
many tribes but a basic truth remains, Tobacco was medicine,
used for prayer, protection, respect and healings.
In many Indian rituals, ceremonies, and religious
observances, tobacco was the unifying thread of communication
between humans and the spiritual powers. Tobacco also
sealed peace treaties between tribes and agreements
between individuals. For such a purpose, the chief often
kept a special pipe with a long decorated stem, "Peace
Pipes". It was an important Shamanic tool throughout
the amazon. Used alone for its entheotic powers or sometimes
smoked during Ayahuasca ceremonies or added to the brew.
The smoke itself was thought to be sacred and purifying,
and tobacco was often burned to purify and protect,
even if not inhaled.

Nicotiana glauca (Tree Tobacco)
Nicotiana glauca was considered the most powerful
of the Nicotiana species. The hallucinogenic properties
were believed to be more powerful and, like all of the
Nicotiana, it was used for many medical treatments.
Some are studying Nicotiana to be used as a
treatment for nicotine addiction since it does not contain
nicotine. Instead, Nicotiana glauca's active ingredient
is anabasine--an alkaloid similar to nicotine
