Default KM + Tangiers = Gonna Puke

Over the last few weeks, I've fallen in love with Tangiers shisha. The flavors have been rich and interesting and the smoke thick and white. Well, last night I tried it out on the new KM for the first time and after 15 minutes, I thought I was gonna die. Literally I had to stop and lay on the floor.

Maybe it's because the tobacco is so heavy and the KM draw is so wide open, but I couldn't handle it. BUT I LOVE THE TANGIERS SHISHA!

What do I do? Do I just have to build up a tolerance or something?

take fewer hits and increase your time between hits. as usual be sure to smoke on a full stomach and drink plenty of water.

Don't inhale by using a smaller gauge hose.

I warned you... They never listen.

Just slow down. I can almost promise that you are taking huge hits and chaining them. If you are not used to it yet that is a terrible idea that will end in nic-sickness every time.

Gotta take it easy on with Tangiers, chaining will most likely end in a FAIL. Nic-sickness is the worse than being drunk, happened to me once when I first started, taught me a lesson real quick.

Tangiers is good. Give you a nice light headed feeling. Tke shorter hits. Or longer intervals in between. And drink water while you are smoking. This is what i do with Naklah, and i do fine everytime i smoke it now.

Follow the teachings, and you will prevail.. LMFAO! Happy Smoking!

How new is your KM? Did you clean it before you smoked? KMs sometimes have some residue in the tubing that could be effecting your smoke. Or your just hitting the tangiers too hard.

I don't understand the need to add restriction to a KM because it's too wide. How hard is it to just not inhale as much?

well to be fair the km can give you big clouds of smoke simply by breathing in next to the hose....

True that, watch yourself with Tangiers my friend learned the hard way. Take fewer pulls and get some fresh air.

Acclimating isn't actually necessary. Its just advised. I acclimate and also load a bowl as soon as I open a package of tangiers and its always fine. Although for extremely strong flavors like clove, I recommend acclimating (or drying out) for a few days or even a week. other than that, just load the bowl loosely and leave a good .25 to a half centimeter between the foil and tobacco and arrange your holes to the type of coals you use. Enjoy that tangiers bro!

Clove is not a strong flavor. It's one of the lighter/subtle Tangiers actually. I'd say it's on par with raspberry.

1.5 cm between the tobacco and foil?

Shit, ya I just realized that. I'll edit it, I meant .25 to .5 of a centimeter. Sorry all, I dont know conversions. Clove is too herbal for me, its extremely hard to smoke, it almost seems like I should be cooking with it and not smoking it. I'll trade it if someone wants it? Its not too juicy, its perfect. I acclimated it for a few days so I know its not gonna get any better. Its just not my kinda taste.
