Default Its just not the same.

Hello, Im just got a new hookah and im pretty new to all this stuff. I been smoking starbuzz blue mist and i just cant get the same buzz i get when i go to hookah bars. Im not sure what it is. Could it been the quick start coals?

The smoke isn't as thick and it seems to taste more ashy? maybe i just suck at setting it up?

Starbuzz is all about flavor and doesn't have much nicotine content. Maybe your bar serves a different brand? If not then i'm not sure.

you shouldn't be getting a buzz from SB.It's heavily washed. Your buzz is probably from pulling too often.

What kind of coals are you using? Some QL's are tolerable...others are just bad.

You may not be allowing the coals to become fully lit and you may need more heat. Do you have a wind cover?

The coals that are used at lounges are usually natural coals, they have no taste and no effect on you. Quicklight coals will give you a buzz and make you feel like crap. What do there coals look like? When I smoke starbuzz I never get a buzz.

I have a feeling I am putting my charcoals on my bowl too fast. Maybe after lighting I should let it sit for a couple of minutes

probably just the quality of coal you are using, let them FULLY ash over. blow on them till red hot, dont burn the shisha, you know, the simple things... if you are doing those and you still get it id recommend switching to CH Quicklights or naturals.
