Wild tobacco (Nicotiana rustica) flowers. N. rustica is native to South America, where it is called Mapacho or Aztec tobacco. It is highly potent and is often used as a psychoactive aid by shamens in indigenous communities. It contains ten times the amount of nicotine found in commercial tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum), which means that it is highly toxic and an effective organic pesticide.
