More about Tsunu Strong Shamanic Snuff
Sacred Connection Tsunu Strong is our strong Tsunu blend. A Rapé made with Tsunu ashes and extra strong Arapiraca tobacco. Arapiraca is a city in the north east of Brazil, in Sergipe state. It is one of the main producers of the Nicotiana rustica natural tobacco. It comes in rope form on big rolls and they grow it naturally.
The Tsunu ashes were sourced from the Yawanawa tribe, who live in the Gregorio river tribal lands in the municipality of Tarauaca. The Yawanawa burn the ashes in an artisanal style from sustainably sourced wood.
It is a basic Tsunu recipe that the Yawanawa make, probably an all time favorite compared to many types of Rapé that have so many ingredients. Simple and effective, made from high quality tobacco and Tsunu ashes. We have two varieties of tobacco we use: native moi and the powerful Sabiá Arapiraca for those who like it strong.
Our Tsunu Strong has a bit more ashes and a bit les tobacco than our Tsunu Extra Shamanic Snuff variety. It is closest the typical color that Yawanawa produce and we all love.

Tobacco is one of the most sacred to them. From natives of the North American planes all the way to the tribes of the deep South there is no prayer without tobacco. They smoke it in pipes or rolled in tobacco leaves, they chew it or use it orally in paste as in the Colombian Ambil. They take it nasally in liquid form dissolved in. water or they sniff it in our beloved Shamanic Snuff.
