Rapé comes from the Amazon region and is made from pulverized tobacco leaves, Nicotiana Rustica. It is about twenty times stronger than the normal tobacco that we know from the tobacco industry.
like regular tobacco, it contains nicotine, but it is not intended for smoking. An advantage is that it contains no chemical additives, making it a lot less burdensome and addictive than regular tobacco. Rapé is seen as ancient natural medicine and not as a stimulant. It can be used for many different purposes.
