Aztec tobacco also called Mapacho tobacco or Nicotiana rustica in Latin is an annual plant native to Central America.
It is part of the Solanaceae family just like blue tree tobacco or black henbane.
This variety grows to around 1 meter in height.
Its flowers are yellow in summer followed by its brown pod-shaped fruits.

In Venezuela, the Waraos tribe consumes its leaves in the form of a blunt during ethnobotanical ceremonies.

In South America, the Aztecs dried its leaves then crushed them into crumbs by adding tarragon leaves from Mexico which they used in ethnic rituals.
This mixture was then consumed by the greatest shamans in order to enter a trance.
The other method of consumption was to place a freshly cut leaf under their lips, which provided immediate effects for several minutes.

Upon receipt, transplant it into a 3 liter pot, use a good horticultural soil rich in organic matter.
