Default Step up to Tangiers?

I was just wondering what would be a good brand to smoke to kind of help build up the tolerance for Tangiers. I've tried it and every time I've tried smoking it, I get a buzz very fast and it makes it hard to keep smoking. What's a good way to build up to it, without just smoking tangiers straight and wasting it because I can't keep smoking it. Thanks.

Try some Nakhla on for size, you'll get a pretty strong buzz, Al Waha is next in buzz wise I think. For me anyways.

But Nakhla is slighty but barely washed so It'll give you a good buzz, but you'd have to smoke like 4 bowls in a row (not a good idea by the way) to build up that kind of tolerance.

Also try eating before smoking and eat some bread if the buzz gets to bad, it should help.

But I don't really know if you can truely have a tolerance for buzzes, I think it's all on what you body can handle.

I used to get sick just smoking starbuzz, and now I can smoke a bowl without any trouble. Of course, tangiers would still kick my ass haha. You can build up a tolerance, but it takes a while (at least for me it does, but everybody is different)

Also, like pixelz said, eating is a must. I don't smoke unless I've had a good meal. I also find that drinking some hot tea works wonders.

The only reason I can smoke tangiers, I think, is because I smoked cigs daily for about two years. It would take a long time and a LOT of nicotine to get used to the amount of buzz that accompanies tangiers. If you really want it, wear nicotine patches/chew nicotine gum while smoking nakhla mizo mint out of a large tangiers. 4 hours straight for two weeks.

Haha I have to say the best comment ever. I would chew nicotine gum and wear nicotine patches, not to stop smoking, but to smoke stronger stuff. THE IRONY.

Thanks Pixelz, that's what I was guessing, but I guess I just needed to hear it from someone else. I usually do eat, unless it's in the morning.

One question, what is the mizo line from nakhla?

the flavor is a lot more potent, and it generally lasts longer than regular nakhla, it's kind of like their "premium" line.

Nakhla is not washed. That is an untruth. Only one of their lines is washed at all. Most everything has natural levels of nicotine.

Smoke the lucid line... then mix it with the classic line until you are ready to smoke the classic straight.

Or just keep smoking lucid. It's a better product.

you just need to smoke for a while, but your body might not get a great tolerance any way. ive smoked almost every day 2-3 bowls for 9-10 months about and lately ive been smoking nakhla 99% of the time so i have built up a tolerance, i can smoke tangiers and not get much of a buzz

Yeah, I've caught a pretty wicked buzz off lucid kashmir cherry before, but the horchata and cocoa don't seem to do it. *shrug*

I noticed a very large difference between the lucid and the regular tangiers. I can smoke lucid with no problem, but after 15 minutes with the og or nour tangiers, I'm lightheaded fast. Anyone else get the same thing?

The lucid line is washed... less nicotine... where the nour is the badass unwashed stuff...

i personally believe that the Tangiers Lucid line is better than the regular tangiers... but thats just my opinion.

Maybe there is some Schnozzberry in my future

Haha I'd really like to be able to really enjoy the noir line, but like I said it's hard to last very long with it. Is there any taste difference with the F-line? I noticed some people talking about the taste of the F-Line orange soda being one of their favorites.
