Re: Craving some Nakhla DA Can
The diffuser breaks the bubbles up so that they are smaller and there are more of them. This increases the surface area of the smoke that is in contact with the water, which most noticeably smooths out the smoke and lessens the "chugging" sound. In addition to this, the additional surface area means that more nicotine is absorbed by the water.
I personally notice a big difference between the two, although I prefer the buzz so I smoke without one normally.
