300 grams for about $6. It's as cheap as the dirt it resembles.

First Experience? Remember the first time you had sex? It's like that... Kinda awkward and strange and you're not entirely sure you're doing it right, but still wholesale awesome.

My first thoughts on trying it were that I wasn't doing it right. It takes about five minutes to warm up to smoking temperature. Even then it doesn't smoke a whole lot. Don't try to get big, milky AF-style clouds out of it.

As far as the flavor... It's floral (But not bad perfume floral), Spicy, earthy, natural... If I could sum it up in one word it would be "Exotic". My first thoughts is that this is what I always imagined Hookah would be like before I ever smoked hookah. The flavor conjures images of Bedouin Nomads puffing waterpipes in their opulent tents... I never imagined those guys smoking something flavored like grapes or a pineapple... I imagined them smoking something like this.

The buzz is nicely mellow. Treat it right, don't suck the stuff down like a hoover. Take a nice, long draw, then pass it. Don't hold the smoke in, and take breaks between puffs. Keep a drink near by and some fresh fruit (I like grapes or berries- The sugar helps your body process the nicotine.)

All of these things you really should be doing anyways, but it's more important with the high-octane stuff.

Use naturals and take your time and you'll do fine.

I've used all of these bowls and I find myself going back to large egyptian more and more often. The phunnel works great but it tends to burn too easily. The Vortex seems to work great when my buddy comes over. If I owned one, it would probably be my preference.
