Default Advice on Nakhla

Some Nakhla comes out of the package knobby and... almost like chopped blended dehydrated fruit with a sorta greasy stickiness, and some comes out looking like "normal" shisha with a slightly coarse cut and sticky-wet.

Question is- How the hell do you smoke the knobby-cut Nakhla? I can't get a good smoke out of any of it.

Are you talking about stems? I always discard those.

When I first open a package of Nakhla I break everything up in my hands, I've never had "chunks" or anything like dried fruit. Interesting. What flavors?

uh, you have stems and thats it, you can just pick em out, or you can choose to smoke them.

nakhla is the easiest thing to smoke man, just pack it loosely.

Pics are loading up now... it's not stems... or if it is, it is *entirely* stems or close to it. I'm talking 60-70 percent... you'll see what i'm talking about after I get them loaded up

Macro pics with a toothpick for reference.

Nakhla Strawberry




Nakhla Double Apple



I also found this monster in the DA!


And finally the only Nakhla I have found that's "Normal" Mint


The pics only kinda do this justice, and no... I did not dig through the shisha to pull out the largest chunks for the closeups. The chunks make up about 60-70 percent of the shisha and make it difficult to smoke.

Yo I just smoked my new package of Nakhla and I put all of them into nice write plastic containers you get from fast food and it took a crap load of time picking apart the big chunk the way I got it. Some pieces were actually very hard to pick apart but well worth the effort. It's so much easier packing bowls and also it just goes to show you how much shisha there actually is. I basically fill a container with each 250g spreaded out =]

Well, when you put it that way, I'd rather pay more for something better to smoke than take the "low cost leader" approach in your statment

nakhla is the most traditional shisha to smoke ever...you can get big clouds and flavor if you do it right.

no need to argue! Some of us simply preffer smoking traditional unwashed tobacco the way it has been smoked for generations throughout the middle east, and some preffer smoking overwashed, overpriced, glycerin drenched tobacco that comes in a shinny little can. Just a matter of prefference.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

I shall hold the humble cardboard box that contains the mighty Nakhla skyward, and the foundations of companies that make glycerin swimming, dyed candy tobacco, that they package in fancy cans and charge inflated prices for will crumble due to their inferiority!

I'll take Nakhla any day over 98% of starbuzz etc. If I want a torrent of artificial syrup ill go get a damn slushy from 7-11 but you sure as hell wont find me paying 20$ to smoke it.

I get nice clouds and flavor from Nakhla, just takes time to get it right. DOUBLE APPLE FOR LIFE.

Yea pretty much. So just open it up and break it apart. Keeping it in a container is better than the open packaging =P Or you can zip lock =]
