Powerful and highly praised. A Rapé from our favorite supplier in Brazil. This Rapé is made with mainly a very strong type of Tobacco but has also local organic Tobacco mixed in. It uses Parika ashes. Apart from the Tabaco and the ashes it is made with a herb called Trevo Cumaru, it is a herb that helps against cough, bronchitis, astma and respiratory problems in general.

It is small herbal plant not to be confused with Cumaru that is used for ashes, or Cumaru de Cheiro, better knwno as Imburana (Amburana/ Emburana), both being big trees. Trevo Cumaru (Justicia pectoralis) a small herbaceous plant that is member of the Acanthaceae family. Sometimes referred to as Chambá, Trevo Cumaru is often used in Ayahuasca. Trevo Cumaru is noted for its smell which is pleasant for many people but can be unpleasant for others. The dried leaves contain compounds that produce a vanilla smell. It is commonly found in hallucinogenic snuffs (Virola) used by the indiginous tribes and is said to increase the absorption of other ingredients in the snuff. The Wajacas (shamans) refer to the leaves of the Justicia pectoralis var. stenophylla as "Bolek-Bena" meaning "Leaves of the Angel of Death." This is a wonderful strong Rapé. Great when one has respitory problems or when one just feels clogged up.

This is another genuine tribal and powerful Rapé from our close friend who lives in Brazil and is exchanging with the tribes people.

Other names: Nukini Parika, Rapé Trevo Cumaru, Forca.

This powerfully energizing Nukini Rapé comes from the Nukini tribe that lives in Acre, Brazil and belongs to the Pano linguistic family. The Nukini tribe compromises nowadays only about 750 members, as they suffered severely during the latex circle and afterwards, where many of the tribe members were enslaved or massacred. A huge part of their culture, including their language was consecutively lost or scattered and almost the entire ethnic group disappeared (Aguiar 2012). Yet, the Nukini managed to survive by mingling with other ethnic groups and tribes; they even rebuilt a strong socio-economic structure that enables them to be in close connection with the nature that surrounds and feeds them. Moreover, opposing many traditional Amazonian tribes, the Nukini value the female tribe members for their plant knowledge and let them gather and blend Rapé plants.

This is an extremely fine and dry powder. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder at a 125 micron fineness. This is our standard.
