Looks like people have different opinions on it. That's to be expected. Some things work for some people, and not for others.
I've never tried acclimating before, I figure I'll give it a go next time I get some Tangiers. Last time I had some Tangiers in my stash was before I knew about acclimating (also before the Lucid line) and I smoked it without acclimating, and it was hardcore harsh! So I'll definitely try it next time.
