For me, a good buzz is part of the relaxation aspect of smoming hookah. But for me, I like a "knock you on your ass" kind of buzz over a mellow one. But I also smoke for the flavour. Clouds are a bonus, yes, but only when you and some buddies are sharing a couple of bowls and just having fun. Solo smoking is all about good flavour and relaxing, whish is where the buzz comes in!
