Ceremonial Mayan Tobacco

8360 - Ceremonial Mayan tobacco. ( Nicotiana rustica ) 
Maya tobacco was grown for many uses. It was smoked for pleasure, and when powdered and mixed with lime it was chewed, it served a function similar to snuff. It was used as an all-purpose remedy for a wide range of maladies; a tobacco gourd was worn as a badge of office by female practitioners of medicine and by midwives. Tobacco was burned as an offering to the gods. It was believed to have magical powers and was used in divination, to induce trances, or as a talisman to ward off evil.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
