Default Buzz from Shisha

Well I am a ex smoker and just getting into the hookah scene. One thing I do miss the most is the instant buzz I would get from my cig when I smoked. Just curious what people think is the best shisha brand for the buzz factor. I understand the nicotine levels are drastically different so I might be SOL on the whole buzz factor. Post up and let me know what you think.

Nakhla or Tangiers is your best bet, more towards the Nakhla side since there really isn't a special way you have to pack it unlike tangiers.

I've never once had a buzz from smoking hookah but then again I've been a smoker for 5 years so I constantly have nicotine in my system. I've quit smoking cigarettes a month ago and my last session yesterday I noticed a small buzz for about 30 seconds so that was nice. I've heard over time like the others have stated that Nakhla gives one of the best.

Nice, thanks for the info guys. So I will have to place a order for some Nakhla before my trip. I got two weeks before I leave so I better order by Wednesday. Any flavor suggestions. Like what are some guaranteed wins with Nakhla?

Even with Nakhla, the buzz will disappear after smoking it for a month or so.

Desi Murli
Nakhla

If you want Nakhla suggestions they're quite littering the forums.

I used to get a Buzz from Shisha even when I still smoked cigarettes.

I heard that if you cut up the stems in your shisha you will get a bigger buzz because more nicotine is released...
Maybe give that a try!?

try holding your breath after inhaling the smoke and take it as deep into your lungs as possible this way you will most likel get a buzz. also i noticed that blowing the smoke out and taking it back in through the mouth or nose helps to get a buzz aswell.

First I should point out that shisha is an Egyptian term for the sort of water water pipe we all smoke. The stuff we all most commonly put into it is called moassel (it's spelled differently depending upon where you go).

How you smoke has far more to do with getting a buzz then does what you smoke. I could get buzzed if I inhaled some insipid washed moassel like SB or Fantasia although it make take a few minutes. If you smoke unwashed stuff and inhale you'll be buzzed much more quickly and intensely.

The strongest moassels around are: Shooting Star, Khansar (both the Syrian and Iranian brands), Desi Merli, Tangiers & Nakhla.

Personally I'd like an intense buzz and when I smoke I smoke for taste so I don't inhale. Rather, I treat moassel the same way I smoke a good cigar meaning with careful, shallow and spaced draws. Also always take out the stems since they impart a harshness to the smoke and they contain much more nicotine then does the leaf.

I find that interesting too. In Germany we call the Hookah Shisha. So we say "Let's smoke some Shisha" instead of "let's smoke some Hookah".

I don't know where the term Shisha got associated with the Tobacco but somehow it did....

Thx for the input all. I will try some techniques and already have some Nakhla on order whenever my first Hookah gets here next week. I am really interested in Shooting Star. Its been getting some pretty awesome reviews from my research.

Well since most people are drooling on the Mizo Watermelon and Guava I went and bought 250gs those last night. Got some Hookah Hookah Lemonade too cause the review said it taste sorta like Crystal Light lemonade and I am a huge fan of Crystal Light. Will have to do my own video review on it.

I've had some slight buzzes once. I love the times when I smoke a really nice bowl, like I had just made the perfect bowl, then I take a nap afterwards. Amazing.

It is awesome to the extent that it as good as any brand in the world that i've tried although Khansar, Contentment, al-Buturī, both of the Khansar brands, Samsun Maden-Canek Halva or Fuzūlī are all mind blowing good but different. The problem is that brands like Shooting Star are made by small, family owned businesses that sell stuff within about a 10KM range of where they live and they tend to sell out fast which makes it a real bitch to get your hands on it. Think of trying to lay your hands on a 20 year old bottle of Thomas Hardy or a rum aged 30 years in a barrel and you'll get the idea.

In terms of anything easy to get in the states i'd say that DM is your best bet. The spice flavours are simply brilliant and the price is right!
