Default Another Tangiers Acclimation Question

I just got some Tangiers Lucid samples from Kingboyb and tried out Strawberry yesterday (the transaction, btw, went smooth as silk). I wasn't too impressed with the way it smoked.

But I was wondering if it would be wise to acclimate all your Tangiers and repackage it for later use? Or should you just do it before you use it?

Its good to do both IMO



But its not how tangiers smokes... its how u make it smoke


and also u really shouldn't have to do much acclimation or any at all with lucid

Ok, maybe I let it sit out too long. I got some mixed signals with the Lucid line when searching the forums.

I don't think you really need to let it aclimate at all. Just pack and smoke and you are good to go. Try the bluegumball its one of thier best imho.

Meh, tried Tangiers strawberry (lucid) a year ago. Could get any flavor out of it, no did it smell anything like strawberries. Hell, no was no smell coming from the shisha at all.

I think Strawberry Lucid just may be a miss out of the line. No matter how i packed it or packed it normal like an Egyptian (since ur supposed to with lucid). Nothing

Make sure your packing it in a tangiers phunnel and the correct way, tangiers is a little funny otherwise.
Although i've had it in a mod bowl and it wasn't to bad!

Ok, I think that a few tweaks in the way I setup plus a better flavor will give me a better experience with tangiers. I'm going to try the blue gumball next.

Lucid is not like regular Tangiers line. You do not need to acclimate it as it smokes just fine out of the bag and you do not have to use a phunnel bowl. It can be packed like any other washed line tobaccos.

i'm still a tangiers virgin (kinda, experiences weren't great), maybe i should start with lucid then graduate to regular.

isn't the lucid made with the lighter part of the tobacco leaf, like SB? and the regular line is made out of the darker part of the leaf? (requiring it to be acclimated before use?)

some tobacco is "washed" to remove some or most of the nicotine.
