Growing Tobacco

It turns out, growing up to 15kg of tobacco for personal use in Canada, is perfectly legal.

It also happens to be that I spend more on cigarettes each month than on MJ.

I have found a Canadian supplier of Canadian grown seed, They sell for 5 cents a seed, which seems reasonable. I have read a bit, and growing seems straightforward, although they are slow to get to even small seedling stage, about a month.

I was hoping to start them in soil and run them in hydro of some sort With a 4/600 watt. I know too much sun will make them harsh, so we'll see. Maybe fluorescents are a better idea.

I'm an apt dweller, but I was hoping to start them inside, in about a 20 sq foot area, and move them out to my large balcony with a 6 foot by 8 foot area in the spring. I hope that's enough space.

Its enough space they like it shady.

I would personally recommend also trying nicotiana rustica as well as the standard nicotiana tobacum (im stoned I dont think I spelled that right) it's favored by many natives. Not only does it contain the most nicotine out of all the tobaccos but it has harmine tetrahydroharmine and harmaline in it which are the three drugs in banisteriopsis caapi aka ayahuasca. You get a hell of a buzz off it and it has a bunch of positive health benefits too despite tobacco not being good for your health to smoke. They like support as seedlings. Curing takes months to do right but it will be the best smoke you've ever had.

I don't smoke anymore. Don't really miss it, but I'd smoke some mapacho in a heart beat.

I read that a pack equals about a half ounce of tobacco and a tobacco plant averages 4 ounces. So if you smoke a pack a day you will need about 182 ounces for a years supply. So that's about 11-12 lbs. Theoretically, It would take about 40-50 plants to supply yourself for a year. Grow some chronic tobacco!

If you had land you could start a hundred indoor and crop it. Know anyone with some extra space?

The rustica species? sounds really interesting. Thanks tessarecting i might even grow a plant. Why not?
im pretty sure if you smoke that shit while on psychedelic mushrooms you will trip BALLs. Harmaline is an MAOI which can potentiate the effects of compounds like psilocybin and DMT.
Caution is advised.

Theres a nice synergy. Oh if you take SSRI or anything contraindicated with MAOI yes stay away from rustica. Harmalas are reversible maoi's but still you dont want to go doing a singado on prozac. Peace.

Your tobacco will attract bugs. Get another bug deterrent plant or just brush them off. Wear gloves at harvest you can get out there.

Wearing gloves at harvest is very important! Tobacco harvesting gives you a really bad headache if you let the plants touch your skin too much, i guess its from the nicotine!

You know, I don't know if I have enough time to get them going this year, but there is a community garden behind chainlink that rents plots for a nominal fee, they're only a few blocks away and they always have a few extra plots. They've been having membership problems,

That's a bright idea, thanks.
