Unhappy Why am I getting buzzed off Nakhla!?

Usually doesn't buzz me at all. I loaded a bowl with Nakhla Mizo Peach... My 32"KM. Small phunnel, 3 ccns... A TINY bit of Tangiers White Grape... But normally doesn't buzz me.

Ever happen to you? I can't take more than two drags without getting a buzz off this bowl. Can it just be a shred of tobaccah that contains more nicotine?

It's frusterating. When I get buzzed I can't smoke as much

You lightweight wussy! LOL Just playin' man (kinda). Just relax and take your time between puffs. Also don't dirty your Nakhla with Taintgers. That buzz is the Nakhla Gods smacking you for your sins against the Almighty Nakhla!

If you haven't smoked in a while you may have lost your nicotine tolerance. The other thing is your coals may not be all the way lit, could happen if you were in a hurry, and what your really experiencing is a lack of oxygen.

Btw I'll agree with Dunkel, most Nakhla is good enough on its own, smoke it as is my friend.

Sometimes I just randomly feel a buzz from nakhla even though it is what i smoke 90% of the time. It's weird but an occasional buzz is not a bad thing.

I'm a 1-3 bowls a day type person, know how to light to CCNs :P... I suppose its karma for tainting with the Almighty . Ohh I hope this sin won't affect me.

Yes, im sure there are also lots of non hookah related factors that should be considered. For instance, what did you eat/drink today? any alcohol? did you work out or run? How stressful was your day? Things like that can all have a part on how nicotine can effect you. Or its just a random leaf in there that wasnt washed all the way.

That last part could be true, you maybe just got an exceptionally strong batch.

I think its how the leaves where washed... because I too get the random buzz from the same batch... but it could be other things... I ussually get the most buzz if i smoke right after eating, the exact opossite of alchol... lol... But its not much of a tolerance thing I mean i smoke more than two bowls a day... its just every now and then...

in case you didn't know, nakhla is a tobacco that contains nicotine. nicotine causes a feeling of euphoria almost, or a "buzz". this is why.

jk man but yeah just take a drag every 30-60 seconds and you should be good.

Make sure you are not smoking on an empty stomach .. also make sure to sip on some water or beverage to keep you hydrated during your enjoyable smoke

Another possibility .. are you using quicklights? If so, make sure they are FULLY lit and ashed over gray before smoking ..

Cheers!

:P. I'm not a noob. My post says CCNs haha.

But nah I actually ate a nice big veggie burger RIGHT before it... With water & I was sipping on water.
Day was a tad stressful... But I think it also could have been a leaf or two that wasn't quite washed all the day.

P.S - Thanks Chad for telling me what a 'buzz' is!! You saved my day :P. YOU were the guy who introduced me to Mizo Mint in the first place if I recall . Got me hooked on the mizo line.

Uh yes the Gods a re smiting you for mixing the Elephant dung ( see reference in Dunkels Signature) with the holy Nakhla. J/K

There was another post on here that mentioned some coconaras not lighting all the way at times. They look like their lit but not completely lit in actuality. Maybe the problem?

IDK but messing with the perfection that is Nakhla can't be good anytime.

Dunkel's sig, I believe, shows AF as DUNG & the man being dunged on as Tangiers... So Tangiers, in theory is better than AF/Dung, seeing as it may be surrounded in DUNG... But it STILL has the capability to walk & such... Which DUNG does not

The intent was that they both are sh!tty. Taint is at the bottom meaning it's even deeper in the dung than Al Failure. LOL
