Default What size do you buy?

This could come off as an awful first(well, second) post but I figured its a valid question: When you're buying your shisha, in what gm amount do you typically buy it?

I've been smoking for a bit and I've only just recently started buying online and I've always gotten 50gm, but I understand how buying 100 or 250gm amounts could be a better way to go for flavors I'm a huge fan of.

I know its personal preference, the question is mainly aimed for answers just out of curiousity.

I think I usually get the 50gm boxes just because of the socialsmoke 10 boxes and a box of charcoal deal. I do get more than 50gm of my favorite flavors though, like 150gm's of Laya Strawberry Kiwi.

Well, i usually pick up 50g's for when im trying a new flavor. But generally i buy 250g's if i either like that flavor, or it has really good reviews. Ive never bought a 500g or 1k tub of shisha.

Typically get the 250g's, but if there's a flavor I'm unsure of that I would like to try I'd throw a 50g on top of my order.

I agree with the 50's as trials because I don't want to drop anywhere form $9-20 on a flavor that I might not like then not to mention your stuck with a whole tub of it if you don't. I have seen the 500g's and 1k's but honestly alot of sites give you specials where you can usually get 3 or more 250's of the same brand for a special price, that and I have a small apt so it is easyier to store little boxes than one big one...

250 unless i am really unsure of a tobacco. honestly the price difference on nakhla 50 to 250 is not worth it most of the time to get a 50 g any way. rarely do i find a tobacco that is not at least acceptable to me any way. then again i smoke 2 bowls a day when i up at school so i go through a good amount of tobacco

I buy 250g. It's been pretty much all Tangiers lately because I haven't gotten through all his flavors that I'd like to try. The drive down to his lounge isn't bad at night because there's no traffic and gas is free for me. Nakhla DA is probably the only stuff so far that I buy in more than 250g amounts and after my last order, I will have enough to last me a long time.

I usually buy 50's and 100's because I get bored easily, unless its a flavor I love or it's not available in smaller sizes then its 250's. I've never bought anything bigger.

one you try chocomint you might get that in large amounts too. its the only thing ive ordered 500 at a time of, if john had kilos of nakhla i would think about buying nakhla DA and chocmint in them... granted i have a lot of other tobacco i really need to run through before i can stock up that much. 40+ flavors of tobacco is a lot when most boxes are rather full still

I just imagined Stewart Little smoking a hookah and I'm pretty sure it's the cutest thing that's popped into my head for ages.


On topic: A lot of companies don't have small increments available so you just have to go for it. It's interesting because I bought a couple 50g of Nakhla DA and they're total crap compared to the JAR of 250g I bought a while back. I'm pretty random in what I buy though all in all.

hmm thats weird, the 50g vs 250 jar were pretty consistent for me, the 50g seemed a bit wetter IIRC but smoked right about the same

Almost everything I buy, unless it's from a member here, is 250gr. I have picked up the occasional 50gr just to throw something in the bowl.

I go for the 50g for the same reason as everyone else, looking for what I like. I picked up a 250 of a flavor I never had and I hated it! At times I wish more was offered in the way of the 15g deals that Hookah Hookah has so you could just try a bowl. It would be cool to be able to pick up a round of Tangers or Starbuzz at a good price just to try them all. When just doing what I call "fishing" it can be a bit expensive but when you find the flavor you like it is worth it to buy in bulk as long as you got your storage down and not having it go to waste by drying out.
