(Wild Tobacco, Coyote Tobacco, Kach-kul, puh-pamo, bah-moh, pooe-ee-bah-hoon, toh-quoh-quah, ohpi) Annual herb to 3 feet tall, native to Baja north to BC, east to New Mexico, Colorado and Montana. Flowers long and tubular, greenish-white. Leaves hairy and glandular, loaded with about 3 times the nicotine content of standard smoking tobacco. Traditional use (TNAM): smoking, ceremonial, earache, stomachache, cold remedy, fevers, inflammations, arthritis. Plant prefers dry, sunny, disturbed ground and often appears after a fire. Ethnobotanical records indicate that native people burned patches of ground in order to stimulate appearance of the coyote tobacco, and may have planted it in ashes left from fires. For all practical purposes, this tobacco can be grown like other tobaccos, by seeding on the surface, pressing in and keeping moist until germination. Coyote tobacco requires less nutrients than common tobacco. A warm and fast-draining location is preferred. Space plants 1 foot apart.
