What is PUNK ASH? Punk ash is the ash made from burning a fungus called Plellinus igniarius that grows on Birch trees. Native Alaskan Inuit/Eskimo people mix it with tobacco and call it Iq'mik. But before tobacco was introduced to them, they chewed punk ash mixed with Poplar tree bark.
Native Alaskans have been using punk ash for over a hundred years to intensify the effects of tobacco. When the ash is mixed with tobacco, it is known as Iq'mik or Blackbull.
Punk ash and tobacco are commonly mixed in a Ziploc® bag with a little added water and allowed to absorb for a period of time, usually 2-3 days. It is then put between cheek and gums, as you would do for regular chew. The effect is noticeably quicker and stronger than standard chew.
Our Punk Ash is not only comprised of ash, but also contains the highly favorable black charred bits!
NOTE: The punk ash and tobacco blend can have quite a strong effect the first time it is used. MODERATION is required until a tolerance can be built up.
