Default Different kinds of tobacco

I have been smoking tangiers for over a year now and love it. Although I like to try different kinds of tobacco, problem is I like the nicotine in tangiers and all other tobacco I try feels as though its dry, not actually dry, but dry as in it doesn't do anything for me. I've heard amazing things about Nakhla, can someone please tell me if the nicotine count in Nakhla is more or the same as tangiers? Thanks guys.

Both nakhla and tangiers are a traditional styled unwashed tobacco.

Should be relatively close.

Technically it is the same as Tangiers.
As far as it 'acting' the same, I have to disagree. You get more of a 'buzz' off of Tangiers... ASSUMING you are smoking the original/noir line.

But if you are looking not so much for the 'buzz' but as opposed to the 'satisfaction'
feel from the first few hookah puffs of the day, Nakhla will definitely pleasure you & offer you rich smoke & great plentiful flavor.

I don't get a buzz off tangiers anymore. Although if I'll get the same calming feeling then Nahkla sounds great. If its about the same as tangiers then why doesn't it smoke the same? I.E. why doesn't it give the same buzz as tangiers for those who still feel hookah buzz's?

Different people react differently.

If you smoke a lot, your body builds up a tolerance to the nicotine, and you don't get as much buzz.

Stop smoking for 3 weeks then smoke a bowl of tangiers.

honestly, nakhla doesnt really seem to give me a lesser buzz, I'll say its about dead even, I do think that tangiers is .5% like nakhla...and i think it feels the same.

ayam zaman on the otherhand...wow.

Ayam Zaman is in a world of its own. It's not even an effing buzz... Its like... like a 'Zaman Experience' haha.

But as far as the percentages, they are both 'technically' .5%... But buzz wise, if I ever get buzzed, Tangiers is more common for the buzz for me. Nakhla is a consistent feeling of 'satisfaction' which I crave

Ayam Zaman I just looked it up. Anyone found it for cheaper than $40 for 500g? Cause when I purchase, I purchase bulk. I don't buy unless its usually in access of 2000g. And 2000g of Ayam Zaman would cost a fortune for that price. lol And how about a recomendation of flavors for both Ayam Zaman and Nakhla?

The % of nicotine must not contribute directly to the amount of buzz. Must be more attributed towards how well the tobacco leaves are washed. Since Tangier's, Nahkla, AF and JM's etc all have the same nicotine content of 0.5% I believe.

I get a whopper of a buzz from Tangiers Noir when I smoke it first thing in the morning and I'm just set even with Nakhla with the same condition, I really don't know why.


You'll love some of Nakhla's better flavors though and the price is definitely right.

The sensations one gets from consuming unwahsed products like Tangiers or Nakhla has more to do with heat management and smoking styles since those things play a large role in determining how much nicotine actually enters your blood stream. Some brands like Ayam Zaman and DM have higher nicotine levels then Nakhla or Tangiers but a conservative smoking style will allow you to enjoy the taste without much in the way of a buzz.

If you have smoked Nakhla before there is usually a familiar buzz that is close to Tangiers. While I was testing some stuff out and just playing around I found out that if you put about 5 or 6 stems in the bottom of a phunnel bowl and then pack the bowl "Tangiers style" then it seems like the buzz increases, so you might want to give that a try.

DM also has a strong "buzz" to it, But its more of a refined mellow and relaxing buzz. Its tastes are subtle and complex. Its a thinking mans smoke in my opinion.
