• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

That is live green tobacco sickness . Yes if you are in wet green tobacco , sweating all day long you can get sick . Dizzy and sick at your stomach , but I have never heard of anyone passing on to the other side from it .Heavy morning few or rain making tobacco wet and transfers the nicotine to you . You also have to realize that tobacco workers are in the hot sun or a barn working and sweat a lot .
With cured tobacco I have not heard of anyone getting sick from handling cured leaves .

I'm interested in trying my hand at growing, curing, and rolling my own cigars. Do I have to be concerned about nicotine exposure when rolling cigars? I only smoke cigars on occasion, and strong sticks can make me feel quite sick. Thoughts?

Ive had it happen many times while priming my leaves that I get the same feeling as if I had smoked a very potent cigar. A little nausea and a light headedness. After washing hands thoroughly after handling tobacco all day helps. Might consider wearing gloves.
