Virginia smoking tobacco is a long-standing heritage cultivar. It grows to an average height of 6' and has 18 to 20 leaves per plant below the crow's foot. When blooms start to show at 55 days, it is mature. When ripe, the light green leaves, which are typically 12" wide by 24" long, turn light yellow/green. As the plant approaches bloom, the leaves start to ripen.

Native American peoples used the tobacco plant extensively in magical and religious rites.
- As external poultices for boils, skin diseases, wounds, bruises, and sprains, products produced from the leaves were used.
- Tobacco leaf teas have been used as an expectorant, a laxative, an emetic, an expectorant for fainting and vertigo, as well as for migraines and intestinal worms.
- Tobacco leaves are used as an antibacterial and a bleeding stopper on cuts.
- Additionally, tobacco leaves were ground and chewed as "snuff" for ceremonial and medical uses.
