Default Fantasia and Al Fakher

Ive just bought some Strawberry and Double Apple Al Fakher and Pink Lemonade Fantasia and was just wondering if either have lots of nicoteen in them because the first time i smoked on my own i had Nakhla Double Apple and was almost sick because of the nicoteen level ?

No, both are washed tobaccos which means they shouldn't have alot of nicotine in them but the fantasia has an alchohol based flavouring which may give you a buzz.

Washed is a relative term. Some companies will wash the leaves until there is no trace of nicotine or flavor left. Others will start with a low nicotine leaf and wash a little to maintain flavor. Still further are those that use a higher nicotine leaf with less flavor so they only need to wash a bit and still keep a noticeable amount of nicotine in the final mix.

The numbers on the side of the box or tin is a rough estimation at best. They are not testing every batch to get an exact reading on the nicotine content.

AF can give a buzz. But like with any other tobacco that is in any way washed just take it slow. If you are getting sick that means you are over doing it and smoking too fast.

The vast majority of moassel you can buy in the Western world has very little nicotine and both Fantasia and AF have so little that it basically doesn't matter. If you get sick when smoking chances are you hoovering away on something like tombac or DM and if that is the case stop doing so. Otherwise, my guess is what is making you sick is the CO from the coals.

How do you stop getting sick?
1) Use only high quality natural coals, no QLs
2) make sure your coals are fully lighted before smoking
3) smoke on a full stomach
4) drink alot of liquids (no booze) when you smoke
5) don't inhale
6) wait at least 30 seconds between drags

Basically no one gets sick from nicotine no matter how strong it is if you smoke sensibly. Frankly I find highly washed stuff like Fantasia fake tasting and boring so I pretty much only smoke stuff that tastes different from what I normally can eat or drink.
