The Huni Kuin people cultivate a unique type of tobacco, which only a few communities still grow. This Rapé is crafted using that original strain, distinct from most Rapé made with tobacco from other regions of Brazil. The "parica and native tobacco blend" is infused with a combination of medicinal herbs central to their cultural tradition, such as copaiba, uxi amarelo, jatoba, and cumaru de cheiro, each contributing unique qualities to the blend and shaping its overall character.
For example, cumaru de cheiro imparts a distinctive aroma, helping to open the respiratory system, while copaiba provides a natural earthy flavor and acts as an anti-inflammatory, soothing the bronchial system. Jatoba is believed to fortify the blood, and uxi amarelo is thought to support the digestive system.
These herbs synergistically create a unique blend that embodies the rich cultural heritage of the Huni Kuin people, offering a range of medicinal benefits to users. Whether you seek to soothe your respiratory system, strengthen your blood, or enhance digestive health, or simply want an authentic Rapé crafted according to tradition, this blend of native herbs comes highly recommended by their medicine man.
