Its used by folk for different ailments. You put it in a corn cob pipe and smoke it or make a tea outta it.

There are many ways to prepare and use Rabbit
Tobacco but there is one major consideration involved with the use of this plant.
It is critical that it is picked AFTER the leaves have turned their traditional silvery-green color in the fall. Until then the chemical constituents are not fully developed and medicinal value of the plant is poorly developed. Most of the terpenes and saponins are not present, and any infusion or tincture made will not be very effective.
That being said,Rabbit Tobacco is very simple to use, whether it is as an infusion, a tincture, smoking mixture or, in itís most powerful form, a true distilled extract. A spoonful of the dried leaves steeped for five minutes in a cup of boiling water will soothe coughs, open up the sinuses and act as an expectorant. Swallowed, itsí healing astringent nature is particularly beneficial to inflamed tissues of the stomach and intestines.

YW, anytime for someone interested in herbs and folk meds. Hope it works for you. My grandmother used to keep a corn cob pipe and a bag of rabbit backer on hands all the time to use when she needed it.

Its been so dry up this way for the last couple yrs, I can hardly find any.

I haven't been able to find it lately either. It used to be all over the pastures when I was a kid.

Oh and it was good in a corn cob pipe too....lol

I have heard good things about medicinal qualities and also a calming effect? My son was into pot but has developed a panic disorder and I was using tiny amts for migraine and nausea. Thought this maybe a safer alternative. I live in rural cananda and not sure if it grows this far north? can u grow it indoors?
