Default nahlah too hard, starbuzz too soft

right now im smoking starbuzz and naklah outta my km. the problem im facing is that both have there plus's and minus's for me. the naklah hits me too hard and the starbuzz doesn't hit me hard enough. secondly the naklah's flavor just isn't what im looking for. im someone that really appreciates flavor and i love the sweet taste of my citrus mist. i just need something that has the same amount of sweetness/flavor of the starbuzz with a bit more nico. does anyone have a good recommendation for a shisha that could work better for me? thanks

Hmm... as I primarily smoke nak I dont know what to tell you... you could try some lucid like Mad Hatter said. you should get some ok buzz with that i THINK and it shouldnt knock you on your ass. also you might get more flavor....but don't write of Nak just yet...you may grow to like it...haha

Romman Good Times is a nice citrus/mint and Romman Ivory Coast is a pineapple/grapefruit. They supposedly have the same nicotine content as Nakhla, but I don't feel they hit as hard, and they are similar to Starbuzz in the flavor/smoke departments.

Layalina has some good flavors and tends to buzz me everyonce in a while. AF is also a good choice. You may also want to consider Nakhla Mizo because it's not as heavy a hitter as regular Nakhla and has amazing flavor.

I don't know what it is, but the mizo flavors that I have (watermelon, guava, peach and grape) all make me sick when I smell them.....too damn sweet imo....I'd rather smoke normal Nakhla any day

For a moderate buzz you should try the lucid line of tangiers.... it's really incredible (actually I'm right now smoking horchata, it's great!)

I'll second that, one of my favorites. I smoke the Noir version now though, which has much more nic-kick than Nakhla. The Lucid Horchata tastes the same though, without so much nicotine.

I suppose that is tough since I don't smoke much of anything that is sweet. Anything that is heavily washed (just about everything on the market save DM, Nakhla, AZ & Tangiers) won't have much nicotine at all. I suppose that i'd suggest something like Salloum that still has a bit of tobacco character and natural fruit flavours rather then candy like flavours.

If you want something candy like, with no trace of tobacco flavour and you don't want anything realistic in terms flavour and you want tons of smoke SB is for you. Of course you'll pay about 18 bucks a tin which is a rip off but apparently lots of people love that artificial taste. Personally, in a washed tobacco I like natural flavours so H-H, AW, a few AF flavours, HF and Salloum are far a far better product in my mind.

Quoted for truth.

But the Mizo guava is still the best guava I have ever had...ever.

Lucid has a very, very minimal buzz in most cases, unless you get a more powerful batch, which happens every so often. Al Fakher used to give you a light and nice buzz, but now it just burns your throat for whatever reason. Nakhla was considered to give the best buzz, and I agree, but I don't get the buzz any more. Mizo gives me a slight buzz but that could be related to how I smoke it, and maybe the dye on the tobacco. Tangiers I used to not be able to smoke until I figured out how to not inhale and smoke differently.

In my opinion, if you are smoking for the buzz you are smoking for the wrong reason, the buzz should be just an enjoyable tagalong aspect.

I completely agree with this statement. Its just like drinking beer or spirits just to get drunk or wasted instead of enjoying the smells and tastes they offer.
