I've grown my own for about 5 years now. Here in Michigan, the season is too short to produce seeds, however, you can grow some from cuttings over the winter and they will produce the seeds for you the following season after planting them in your garden. Processing is tricky and kind of messy. I can U2U anyone who wants my processing method.

Have you ever thought of growing your own tobacco that would be cheaper still again.

I have one of the electric injector machines, and the cigarettes it makes aren't exactly good. The cherry falls off extremely easily.

Have any of you had this problem? If not, which roller do you use? I'd be very interested in picking a better one up.

I been rolling my own for about 9 years now. 100 grams of tobacco runs about 30 bucks up here, lasts two of us about a week. Not too bad, compared to a pack a day at 11 bucks, that's 77 a week for just one of us.

To keep it fresh, I don't freeze it, but vacume seal a ziplock. Works pretty good.

I grow my own. 24 plants gives me enough for a year. They grow like a weed, so be careful where you put them, because they keep sprouting and are hard to get rid of. Dry it in a cardboard tube with holes poke in it. Hang tube in warm place for 5 days and then flavour with whatever for a couple of days. I usally use rum. You can be smoking it seven days after harvest. Then all you need to buy is papers and filters. Bible paper seems to do the trick for papers( might go to hell, but your be smoking the whole way).

Another trick, but a packet of 20s and break them up. Roll them back up and you can get 60 out of a 20 pack.

Been rolling my own for three years already, think of the money I have saved. They are cheap enough to throw half the cigarette away, the part that is really strong.

It's actually 11.09 but there is six percent state tax on it. How much does a quid equate to in dollars?

The next step is to dig up part of your back yard and grow your own tobacco, without the Radioactive Phosphate Fertilizers used to grow the stuff in that ziploc bag you have there.

Kentucky Select is a well-known organic tobacco that works well in cigarettes. However, you need to store rolled cigs in a humidor as the no-additive leaf dries out easily.


I have a humidor installed in the sound hole of my acoustic guitar... I could just stuff them all in there.

Somewhere... Johnny Cash is smiling...


BTW I don't consider myself a smoker. I don't smoke cigarettes. The odd cigar though. The topic of growing tobacco organically is interesting to me, and I've been looking into it for the last few months. I've also read that tobacco grown independent of industrial fertilizers can actually have a health benefit. It's all very curious.

In the spring I intend on starting a rolling thread dedicated to my first tobacco growing experience.

I haven't heard of that brand before.

I run with American Spirit brand -- and I switch between their yellow and the red organic. I can't stand anything buy all natural/organic tobacco these days.

I've actually converted several people. Where I live, a pack is about $10 USD

It could be that they are not getting packed tight enough.

I have the top-o-matic crank machine and it works fantastically. It will run you about 40 USD, but, it is worth the money.

You will need to clean it and oil it from time to time when the crank starts getting rough. It will also take a bit of trial and error to get the right amount of tobacco and such.

The tubes make a difference too. I like Double Diamond.

It;s for the survival of the family members of those who do smoke.
I take it you've never seen a hardcore smoker being forced to go without for extended periods?
Nicotine cravings could have made Ghandi resort to mass murder.

I don't know if they changed the rules yet, but, our tobacco shop shared with us a few years ago that pipe tobacco isn't taxed the same as cigarette tobacco. The fine cut pipe tobacco rolls just as well as the canisters of cigarette tobacco and it's about a dollar cheaper.

Cigarettes cured my asthma ...yes folk it did.
i started smoking when i was 16 year's old i had asthma so bad i was on meds and would even turn purple in my sleep and have to be rushed to the hospital.
I started smoking due to peer pressure..ever since my first hit i have never had a asthma attack knock on wood that's been close to 30 years ago.

I even told the doctor's what i started doing ect. they told me to stop smoking it was bad for my health..
Living with asthma almost every day of my life was a living hell.... and almost died numerous times in my sleep from it.

So they came to the conclusion i over polluted my over sensitive lungs or something like that..instant cure for asthma.yeah side effect maybe cancer...but the meds they give aint any safer are they?

American Spirit is good -- a bit too harsh for me. The harshness comes from the preservatives, which in the tobacco world, are not considered "additives" so they can still add preservatives and say "no additives." There are a minimum number of things that must be in the tobacco (by law in the US) to sell packaged cigarettes -- those minimum "additives" don't need to be called "additives."
That's why Lucky Strike stopped selling in the US.

This thread convinced me to get a crank machine and a big bag of tobacco. I don't really like the taste, because I smoke clove cigarettes, but much better than marlboro which are unbearably stinky to me. seems like I get much more nicotine for the dollar, which is good. maybe this will help me quit, they don't seem as addictive.

I've heard folk say the same about 'the plant that can't be mentioned on A.T.S.'

my prediction is big tobacco lobbying the white house for a controlled substance ban on growing tobacco. just this morning i was taking to the owner of the smoke shop up the street and he was complaining about an immediate loss in business after the ban on the in-house roll-your-own cigarette machine.

my buddy just came back from Korean, hes a TSA teacher and was showing me a couple different packs of smokes. they tasted alright but burned out to quick imo.

i think it varies by state but the main rule is if you grow it you cant sell it at least with out tax but i dont know how that would work,one of my friends in santa cruz grew his own tobacco and i remeber the cops seeing it and nt careing once they found out it was not pot or some other illegal plant so in ca i think you can.

www.tobaccoseed.ca... this is a pretty informative site but they do wanna sell ya the stuff so take it with a grain of salt

www.ttb.gov...
