Can anyone tell me a bit about rabbit tobacco? No, not lavender. (sorry Peter Rabbit) It is used as a tea for respiration problems, colds, etc. I assume it can also be smoked. Where can I find it in California? Where can I get the plant itself?

you aren't talking about mullein are you? It can be smoked for asthma and I used it frequently in a tea for decongestion.

Here's a link further describing Rabbit Tobacco. Personally I don't know if I'd smoke anything, but if you try it let us know how it did.

:S I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to smoke anything. I had an herbalist friend, who's husband taught at UT when we lived in Tennessee. She would give out rabbit tobacco tea for all respatory problems. It was in tea bags, so I assume that she bought it somewhere. Unfortunatly they moved to New York and we lost touch with them.

Rabbit tobacco, huh? All natural? Alternative to "cigarettes"? No nicotine? Sounds good!!!!

I live in the northern half of Georgia....I have access to some land for growing ("bottom land")....

I smoke cigarettes, and the price is high on two fronts (the cost [over $20 a carton] plus the foreseeable medical costs)....I want to substitute rabbit tobacco in place of cigarettes....

Smoke in a pipe? Are there any commercially available rolling machines for individuals?

Most importantly, is it 100% safe?

I am dragging out this post!
I heard about this herb from a friend who was at an herbal conference where they featured this.
I was so stoked to hear about it, cuz I had already been enamored with it after discovering it up in the mountains of northern calif where my husband hunts.
I would always pick it when I found it cuz I loved the fragrance. Now I find out it's medicinal!
I've looked it up and now know how to use it, and that I need to gather it and dry it and keep it.
I especially thought of the original poster, Mentha, who is also in Calif. If you're still looking for the plant, email me at jeanshop at suddenlink dot net and I'll clue you in as to where I find it.
I also asked at all the local herb shops, and no one had even heard of it.
