              When I first stumbled across this many years ago I was intrigued. This is a strain of Tobacco that does not contain Nicotine yet offers simliar effects. The coolest part about this strain is that it's available from suppliers other than the big greedy coorporations who took over the trade along time ago. The seeds are also available for purchase.


You can cultivate your own (where laws permit) and NOT poison it like the corporates do. I would like to help this species survive and spread back to the wild. A good curing recipie for this stuff is to use honey and blackberries. Of course, you can experiment with your own choice of aromas to cure and flavor it with. Baybean also goes great with Tobacco, and has even been used as an alternative.


This variety of Nicotiana is considered the most powerful of the Nicotiana species. This is likely due to the large amount of nicotine related alkaloids, nornicotine and anabasine that it contains. Today, Nicotiana glauca is being studied to be used as a treatment for nicotine addiction since it does not contain nicotine, only closely related constituents are found in the plant. It's most active ingredient is believed to be anabasine yet a synergistic combination of all chemicals present in the herb are likely what induces its unique vibe.


It may also provide some use in protecting the biosphere from diabolical damage due to toxic forms of fuel used in our modern day cars. It is also being investigated for use as a bio-fuel. I hope to see the world embrance a clearner and safer alternative for standard fuel and energy and if this stuff can help, so be it. Aside from these potential useful applications in modern society, the Nicotiana plant, was and still is used in many medical applications. To this day, its smoked by Native American groups.


Phytochemical Constituents:

Anabasine is closely chemically related to nicotine. This compound acts as a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist Note: Pharmaceutical drugs aimed at treating Mysthenia Gravis effect acetylcholine.

Dosages: No clinical dosage information is available. A lethal dosage of 11 mg/kg to 16 mg/kg in mice has been reported. This lethal dosage information was tested using the synthesized compound, anabasine.
