Tobacco is a sacred plant in the Americas, which is known for it's abundance of sacred medicines as part of our autochithonous beliefs systems. While Europe, the Mediterranean and Near East have a affinity for monotheism and orthopraxy, Asia has an obsession with the mind and freeing oneself of action, the Americas, and to a lesser extent Sub-Saharan Africa have the ecstatic tradition. In Africa, there is one psychedelic (iboga) that has a cult following, and the medicine is currently used in the west to cure addictions to heroin and opioids in general, the biggest tradition there is frenzied states helped along by percussion and dance.
In the Americas, we have the ecstatic tradition of the plant medicine. Tobacco is the lesser of these, but it was once more powerful that it is today. It was known to launch you into a psychedelic space.
We also have access to Ayahuasca and Snuffs of DMT, Teonanacatl (Psychedelic Mushrooms...) Morninglory (LSA), Peyote (Mescaline) and several other plants and potions, all for the increase of strength, for communication with the spirit world- especially the dead-, for the increase of intelligence, and for the curing of broken minds and hearts. Our methods seem to me more effective than what is available to the old world, which is locked in ritual and religion.
If you haven't tried a plant medicine, I suggest you do, for your physical and mental health's sake. These things have the power to change you because in them are contained the very neurotransmitters that our brain has as well.
Couple them with certain old world techniques, especially African and European ones, and you'll have you an experience unlike anything you've ever encountered.
Anyway, that's the deal. Try them out if you ever have a chance.
