Our retail store operation

High Desert Heirloom Farm is to be partially financed by our retail operation at High Desert Tobacco. It’s an online store selling tobacco related products such as cigarette machines, cigarette tubes, and rolling papers. We also sell some flags, including Confederate themed flags.

The store started out well enough but things got a bit dicey soon after. We were selling whole leaf tobacco and that caused us some problems. Even though whole leaf tobacco is NOT considered a ‘tobacco product” but just a simple agricultural product, PayPal and most merchant account services do not see it that way. We lost the ability to process payments for a while.

In order to gain a merchant account, we had to drop our whole leaf tobacco lines. So be it. We’ll get back to those sales in time.

The bottom line is that High Desert Tobacco online store is again, open for business! Please stop by and take a look at our excellent inventory and great pricing!


High Desert Tobacco, NOT selling tobacco

Yep, the headline is right. Unfortunately, High Desert Tobacco has been forced into a position of not selling any tobacco of any kind.

It’s a long, drawn out, sort of thing having to do with payment processing. So, due to the current difficulty with processing payments, High Desert Tobacco has dropped all of their whole leaf tobacco offerings.

They will still offer everything else! Rolling papers, cigarette tubes, rolling machines, injector machines, shredders, filters, and flags though and at damn good prices too!

Whole leaf tobacco – not what you think

Whole leaf tobacco

Not the evil weed you’ve been led to believe

High Desert Tobacco sells only natural whole leaf tobacco. We decided on this product, instead of selling commercially prepared tobacco products, for many reasons. Some of those reasons are:

  • It is a simple agricultural product, not taxed.
  • Whole leaf tobacco does not have 599+ chemicals introduced into commercial cigarettes.

  • Natural tobacco in the whole leaf form has many uses beside that of smoking or chewing.

  • The end user has total control over how he/she uses the tobacco leaf.

Tobacco, in general, has come under attack mostly due to the devastating health effects seen in people who have been smoking commercially produced cigarettes and chewing tobacco. What most people do not know, because they have never been told, is that natural tobacco is not nearly as harmful as the anti-tobacco lobby would have you believe.

“Being one of two main categories exempt from being required to label the ingredients (the other one being alcoholic beverages), tobacco products are usually laden with additives. Any attempt to make labeling the ingredients obligatory has been smothered by the tobacco industry. Now, I have heard many times that cigarettes have additives, but once I looked deeper into the subject, I realized this was not only true, but true to a perverted extent.

In the US, the industry uses over 600 intentional chemical additives to blended cigarettes. Furthermore, there is a myriad of additives present in tobacco final products which are not intentionally added, but are simply a by-product of growing and production process.

These include: various microorganisms, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, heavy metals, foreign materials such as metal, cardboard, styrofoam, wood fragments, small animals and insects, and other elements such as organic solvents and dioxins.

The tobacco industry claims that all of the additives used in the manufacture of cigarettes and other tobacco products are approved for use by the FDA GRAS (generally regarded as safe) list. However, problem is the ingredients on these lists have never been approved in products that are intended to be burned or inhaled. ” Citation – forgotten-healing-properties-of-tobacco

We, at High Desert Tobacco, are working to bring the tobacco user back to the natural form of tobacco as it comes from the tobacco farm. Simply cured, by air, heat, or fire, and baled up.

Now that we’ve done a short introduction, let’s get into some of the things that whole leaf tobacco can be used for. We’ll start off with uses that do not involve the smoking, chewing, or other ingestion of tobacco.

Tobacco can make an effective pesticide and pest repellant! Tobacco dust and a tea made from tobacco dust makes a very effective pesticide and pest repellant! A very little of this goes a long way too. Tobacco leaves should be dried until they are brittle then ground into a very fine powder. A hand cranked coffee grinder that can grind “espresso” will do fine for this.

Your tobacco dust can be sprinkled around the base of your plants to discourage insects and rodents. Dust poured into gopher holes will make them vacate that hole. You can also make a tea from the dust to make a nicotine spray for your plants. Here’s the mix!

  • 1 teaspoon tobacco dust

  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap

  • 1 gallon of water.

  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper

Mix the amount of liquid soap into your water. Then, mix in the tobacco dust, and after the entirety of your tobacco dust has been added, slowly mix in the black pepper while stirring the whole mix. Stir for 5-10 minutes then let steep for 1 hour. After than, it’s ready to be sprayed onto your plants. remember that nicotine can be absorbed through the skin so, wear appropriate protection.

Medicinal Use


“Indians used tobacco as a pain reliever for ear aches, toothaches and as a poultice. The leaves of N. attenuata variety were mainly used for the medical purposes. In fact, currently there are test studies being performed to find a way to extract the pain relieving components of tobacco and remove the addictive ones to use for medical purposes. Note that the medical profession will not allow nicotine to be a treatment for medical issues or mental illnesses due to to the health risks; but they are studying the benefits of tobacco nonetheless.

To make a poultice, crush the leaves to place on the affected area to relieve medical issues.

Skin Rashes, Eczema and rheumatismIndians used a poultice of tobacco leaves to put on skin inflammations to help soothe and relieve pain. Although there is documented accounts that tobacco has pain relieving qualities, this author could not find any information on how tobacco soothed skin inflammation.

Toothaches – This poultice could also be placed in the mouth to alleviate pain from toothaches.

Rattlesnake and Insect Bites – Indians believed that the nicotine in the tobacco would help relieve pain as well as help draw out the poison and heal the snake wound. After the poison had been sucked out, chewed leaves could be applied to cuts or bound on the bite with a bandage. This method can also be used when stung by an insect.

Colds – Indians would mix tobacco and leaves from the Desert Sage plant, or the root of Indian Balsam (or cough root), Leptotaenia Multifida. They believed this would also help with asthma and tuberculosis. They typically smoked the leaves to clear out nasal passages.

Toothpaste – In India, powdered tobacco is rubbed on the teeth for cleaning. This method is still used in India and marketed in stores around the country.

Tobacco can be, and has been, used in artwork. Naturally cured tobacco leaves, when most, are very flexible and can be manipulated easily. The center ribs of large leaves are tough and fibrous, when moist, they are easily bent to just about any form. Colors range from a bright yellow to a deep, dark, mahogany.

However, the most common use for tobacco today is smoking or chewing. By using whole leaf tobacco, you can turn it into whatever form you desire and, by blending various types, come up with a product you like better than anything on the commercial tobacco market.

Those who like chewing tobacco can experiment with various types and use various flavorings, such as molasses, fruit, salt, and liquors.

Using only a couple of types of tobacco, people can easily make nice little cigarillos rolled using regular hand rollers.

Pipe smokers will find that they can have an almost endless variety of flavor using only three or four types of tobacco. They can even try flavoring by using many of the same things the chewing tobacco maker might use.

Cigarette smokers will find that they can blend tobacco in such a manner as to have the lightest of ultra light cigarettes all the way to blending to have a high nicotine heavy flavored cigarette. These can be accomplished using one, two, or many, tobacco leaf types.

Whole leaf tobacco is, of course, the tobacco used to make any good cigar!

All of the above is easily accomplished using whole leaf tobacco that does not have the almost 600 chemicals found in commercial tobacco products.

High Desert Tobacco currently sells the four most common varieties of tobacco for cigarettes, pipe, and chewing tobacco. We also sell everything you need to turn the whole leaves into a great cigarette or pipe tobacco.

One of the great motivators for using whole leaf tobacco is to reduce the cost of smoking. For cigarette smokers, that cost can be around $1 per pack. It only takes 8 ounces of tobacco to make a full carton of cigarettes. A full pound of whole tobacco leaves (costing about $16) will yield around 12 ounces of shredded tobacco. That’s enough for 1 1/2 cartons of cigarettes.

What we feel is an even greater advantage though is quality. With whole leaf tobacco, a person who smokes can blend their tobacco to develop a cigarette or pipe tobacco that is the absolute best they have ever had. I like a very light cigarette but I want some flavor too. I’ve easily managed to do that by blending four types of tobacco:

In real world amounts of tobacco for a full carton of cigarettes, that would be:

  • 4 oz Virginia Brightleaf Flue Cured (very light and lower in nicotine)
  • 1.6 oz Virginia Flue Cured ( average nicotine and a bit more flavor)
  • 0.8 oz Tennessee Burley (high nicotine and can be harsh if too much used)
  • 1.6 oz Turkish (Oriental) Izmir (Very low nicotine but has a nice spicy flavor)

That’s my “current” favorite blend. It’s quite light from my perspective but certainly has good flavor. I have given some cigarettes made of that blend to friends who have described it as smoking nicely flavored air. I’m still experimenting! Who knows, next week, I may have another favorite formula!

Our Youtube channel has good videos that can help the beginner with preparing whole leaf tobacco for use. We even have a “how to roll your own cigarettes” video.


Roll your own cigarettes for the best smoking and lowest cost.

Many people are starting to roll their own cigarettes in order to save a little money. It’s a small but growing trend that will only get larger as states ,and the federal government, keep piling on punitive taxes on cigarettes.

Any tobacco product cut and advertised as “cigarette tobacco” also gets punitively taxed at the state level. that makes saving money by rolling your own cigarettes more difficult.

Some folks have started using “pipe tobacco” that isn’t taxed so heavily to roll their own cigarettes and that is certainly a viable way to go. There are some fine pipe tobacco blends on the market for sure and the price is still fairly reasonable.

We, at High Desert Heirloom, know that there are even better ways to get the best cigarette possible at the lowest cost. We advocate the use of “whole leaf” tobacco. Since whole leaf tobacco is an agricultural product, it is not subject to the punitive taxation that processed tobacco products have. In addition, it’s all natural stuff! No added flavors or chemicals and there are enough varieties so that the smoker can develop a blend he or she finds to be the best smoking in the world.

Our store, High Desert Tobacco,  sells everything you’ll need to blend your own tobacco, enjoy the finest smoking in the world and save huge amounts of money doing it. For the cigarette smoker, that gets you cost down to about $1 per pack!

We’re excited to have several new products to offer in addition to our fine whole leaf tobacco.

Here are a few of the items we have recently started to sell:

Powermatic S tobacco leaf shredder:

The Powermatic S is an electric powered leaf shredder that provides perfectly shredded tobacco for cigarettes. Yes, it costs $275 plus shipping but, for the average, 2 pack per day, smoker, that’s less than he or she would spend in one month buying commercially made cigarettes.

Here is a video of the Powermatic S shredder


Another product from Zico USA is the Powermatic MINI cigarette injector machine. We have these in black and white versions.

Of course, we have rolling papers, filters, tubes, more injector machines, and much more to come.

Why whole leaf tobacco is better

Yes, I’m still harping on the benefits of using whole leaf tobacco for all of your tobacco needs (wants). I’ve covered the cost aspect of it and that is considerable… $1 per pack of smokes vs $6 – $10.

However, cost is on nearly the only thing that gives whole leaf tobacco the upper hand over commercially available smokes.

Before I get into the meat of the matter, there is no such thing as healthy smoking! The purposeful inhaling of smoke, from any source, is unhealthy. It always has been, it always will be! It is also illegal for anyone to advertise any cigarette or tobacco product as “more healthy” than any other cigarette or tobacco product.

Now, with that taken care of, let’s get to the subject of this post. That has to do with all the manipulations that the major cigarette manufactures perform on the tobacco they put into your smokes! Most of those manipulations involve processes that involve adding chemicals to the tobacco! Yep, when you buy most commercially available cigarettes, you’re also buying a cocktail of 599 added chemicals! The list is at the bottom of this post.

Those chemicals serve the cigarette makers in several ways such as changing the nicotine absorption, modifying the burn rate of the tobacco, changing the taste and feel of the smoke, making “homogenized sheet tobacco” (tobacco paper made of scraps and stems), and making “expanded tobacco” (gives the tobacco unnatural bulk).

By using whole leaf tobacco from High Desert Tobacco, you avoid the added chemicals. What you get is what comes from the farm where the tobacco was grown and cured. We don’t add anything to the leaves of tobacco we sell. In fact, we let you know how to wash your tobacco if you’re concerned about things like pesticides and fertilizers.

Of course, if you make cigarettes from our tobacco, using rolling papers or tubes, you’ll be introducing those chemicals to your smokes but, you still won’t be adding in the massive numbers of chemicals introduced by the major cigarette manufacturers. the only way to truly get a “pure” smoke is to either smoke cigars you make yourself or make your own pipe tobacco out of our leaf and smoke a pipe. I actually suggest you try both of those methods!

So, without further rant, here is the list of what you get with most commercially made cigarettes:

High Desert Tobacco is getting ready! A preview…

We’ve gotten in our first shipment of tobacco so, we figured it was time to let folks see what we’ll be offering to start things off.

First of all, let’s take a look at the tobacco sampler package. This is 6 ounces of tobacco made up of four ounces of Virginia Brightleaf, one ounce of Tennessee Burley, and one ounce of Turkish.

This is how it comes to us. It’s in great shape! Good moisture content to keep it pliable and free of mold. When you get it, you can shred it right away but we suggest letting it dry out in the open air a little before blending and smoking.

High Desert Heirloom LLC has filed Articles of Incorporation!

We have taken the first step in becoming a Nevada Corporation and filed our Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State in Nevada.

We’ve also purchased our business license so that we can start commercial operation right away.

Our first effort in retail operation is to sell one type of agricultural commodity. Unprocessed tobacco that can be used however the end user wishes to use it! We’ll be able to offer this, by the pound, to our customers at great savings. Initial pricing is looking like $15 – $17 per pound plus shipping.

In the near future, we’ll have pages set up so that the general public, over the age of 18, may see what we have to offer and make purchases online. We’ll also have informational pages about what uses the tobacco can have and how to do what you want to do!
