JANK’U means WHITE in the AYMARA language. In the Wiphala, the flag of the Andean-Amazonian communities, this color represents time and dialectics (jaya-pacha). It is the expression of development and continuous transformation of the qullana marka over the Andes, the development of science and technology, the art, and the intellectual and manual work that generates the reciprocity within the community structure..
Our JANK’U flavor is achieved using one of the higher foliar levels of the Virginia tobacco plant, in search of a milder flavor than our ORIGINAL tobacco.
These tobacco plants are traditionally farmed in the northwest region of Argentina, where they are stockpiled in different locations. At our site we carry out the conditioning of the tobacco using solely chlorine-free water steam, and after that we proceed to the “peluquilla” type grinding, making all the necessary efforts for the tobacco to reach the consumer with 15% humidity.
As our tobacco does not contain any additives, it is important that the consumer follows the instructions inside the package in order to preserve it properly and provide it with the preferred natural flavor.
It is also important to note that, when buying our products, you are helping to support farming without the use of agrochemical products in small farms.
CONSCIOUS SMOKING recommendations:
Take some time for the cigarette rolling,
having a good intention in mind.
Try to avoid getting the smoke into the lungs
and just keep it a few seconds in your mouth,
as the sacred plant active ingredient
acts on the gland located on the upper palate.
The effect to achieve is:
be here, now, and feel its spirit!
