Default For you mathematicians out there

Can sum1 double check the math?

Vortex = 30 grams of tobacco roughly (safe side)

250g / 30g of tobacco = 8 & 1/3 bowls

8 & 1/3 bowls x 1/4 teaspoons = rounded 2.1 teaspoons


2 teaspoons of both honey and glycerin should theoretically do the trick for a 250g box. Given that the bottom of the spoon drips some extra stickies too.

I had to come up with this because I meticulously prepped 8.x separate bowls of zag with the proper conditioning and it took about 45 minutes. This should save some time. Whatcha think?
Favorite Tobacco:
Tangiers - Pear, Orange Soda
Nakhla - Double Apple

yeah that looks good to me. i would just do 2 tsp of each, i mean you can always add more glycerin/honey but you can't take the stuff out once it's in the tobacco already...

Seems correct. I would say give it try and smoke a bowl, if needed you can always add a bit more after the first bowl. But to calculate the amount you will need then is more difficult

I don't like to add too much honey .. I do about 1/4 honey and 3/4 glycerin .. so if you are going to put in 4 tsps .. I would do 1 tsp honey and 3 tsp glycerin. BUT personally I would only do 1 tsp honey and 2 tsp glycerin and see how that goes first. You can always add more later ..
