More about Caboclo Paricá Rapé Snuff
Our Caboclo Paricá Rapé blend is not for the weak hearted, it is a powerful medicine to go deep. Rapé blends of late have become overall stronger and stronger. This was one of the first blends to be of this powerful variety. It is energetic and grounding. When taking a bit more it takes you all the way. Made with powerful Rustica tobacco and ashes from the bark of a tree locally known as Paricá. This Paricá is not to be confused with the Yopo snuff that is sometimes also known as parica. These ashes also go by the name Xinshá. It is a blend that has a bit more tobacco than most varieties but not exaggerated. Naturally the tobacco used is the stronger variety.
Our Caboclo Parica Rapé producer
One of the best and one of the first non-indigenous Rapé crafters of the region makes this very special Rapé Snuff. Growing up deep in the forest he started working as a youngster tapping rubber. This means waking up before dawn and walking alone deep into the forest. Then to cut the latex trees and collect their milk. Afterwards it has to be carried back home and smoke it till it becomes a big ball of natural rubber that gets sold and floated down the river. He used shoes for the first time around fourteen, saw a city for the first time when he was sixteen and learned to read and write when we was 21.
This man is a great connoisseur of the forest, its flora and its medicines. He has been studying them forever and used to work for the government as an expert in identifying plants and terrain in the forest.
Use with respect and care; it is a tobacco product and can be habit forming!
