Dont worry. You are not an insect. Some insect can eat potato leaves and the solanine doesnt kill them. You could kill your cat with chocolate or some harmless essential oil. There are aphids on mine Tobacco btw. It's young but it's already spicy. It's also their only food source, which is not my case either. They eat nothing but Tobacco juice without being poisoned - that's a disappointment if you ask me. I use to see some black gnats on mature plants too though. I think they get caught because the surface is sticky. They use to be on my Cannabis too. The surface is covered by trichomes on both of those plants These gnats dont suck liquid from leaves AFAIK. Their larvae eat the roots and the mature ones eat organic stuff from soil

You'll get early symptoms within the first 15 minutes to an hour.
Feeling queasy or throwing up
Quick, heavy breathing
Higher blood pressure
Dizzy, off-balance, or confused
Late-phase symptoms are more like winding down. They happen 30 minutes to 4 hours later.
Lower blood pressure
Feeling weak, slow reflexes, or unable to control muscles
Intragastric nicotine at pH
