Mapacho jungle tobacco leaves (Nicotiana rustica). Rustica is an extremely potent type of Tobacco, containing up to 20 times higher levels of nicotine than usual tobacco, Nicotiana tabacum (Stanfill et al. 2010). This is the leaf used to make Mapacho Masos. A Mapacho maso is a juicy and solid fermented mass of Rustica leaf that has undergone a long process of curing and fermentation.

These leaves are dry and brittle. Whenever you need fresh leaf, you can place some leaves in a jar with a small spoonful of fresh water, and it will absorb the water and the Tobacco will become fresh again within a few days. After the leaves are rehumidified, they will become pliable and ready to cut to the desired texture.

Other names: Mapacho, Rustica, Nicotiana rustica
