It is not a short explanation and couldn't recite it if my life depended on it. It's basically the reason why Tangiers is technically the ONLY FDA approved hookah tobacco
my question is then why is tangiers noir the only tobacco product i have ever heard of that needs acclimation? i have not heard of any other shisha (to include all forms of hookah tobacco), ryo, pipe, dokha (might have mixed up letters there), cigars, dip, snuff, snus, chaw etc that need it. even the lucid line doesnt need it, it just seems weird.

(note: want to make sure this isnt taken as jumping on you with the whole lack of tone in text)

If someone knows .. please post it! So we can look it up ..
i thought that legally all tobacco had to have the list of what was in it after that flavored cig ban, or was that just for the cig ingredients
