Default Culmination of Questions [Tangiers]

This is a list of questions I have about Tangiers and aspects of Tangiers. I put it in list form to be easy to read and for this thread to hopefully be used in the future by other newb's with the same questions I have. Thanks in advance to anyone who answers these questions, and anyone who add's a question of their own to the list.

1. Please explain acclimation, factors of good and bad acclimation, and what makes Tangiers so acclimation prone.
2. What is the difference between Lucid and regular Tangiers?
3. Why are people so drawn to Tangiers being as it has the whole acclimation problem?
4. What's the Buzz? (scale 1 to 10)
5. Why do people say it must be smoked in a phunnel or vortex?

That's it for now. I might as well say it myself and save someone the trouble.

1. Im not sure how to answer this one
2. Lucid is a washed tobacco so you wont get as big of a buzz as normal tangiers
3. im not sure how to answer this one eather
4. lucid like a 1 and normal tangiers a 9
5. because it is super juicy and if you use an Egyptian bowl the juices just run out of the bowl

1. When you get the tobacco and it smells like soy sauce then you need to acclimate it. It gets rid of the smell and brings out the flavor. As to why it smells like that I have no idea...
2. Lucid for me is the only line that I will smoke because I ordered a good 1,250grams of the Noir line and it is unsmokeable to me...for some people smoking that line will close up your lungs is what it feels like because of the amount of nicotine. Lucid doesn't have as much nicotine and is the best smoke I have ever gotten.
3. Why are people so drawn to Tangiers being as it has the whole acclimation problem?
4. Buzz on the noir line is a huge 10!!! but i can't take big pulls cause it feels like it closes up my lungs. Lucid line doesn't really give me a buzz but then again DM doesn't give me a huge buzz.
5. It is one juicy mothereffer lol if you don't use something like a phunnel it will put a ton of juice down the stem of your hookah lol

1. The tobacco needs to stabalize and adapt to its new environment so it doesnt go into humidity shock. When the tobacco more or less smells like the flavor its suppose to be, its ready to be smoked. The proper way to acclimate the tobacco is to put it in wide shallow tupperware and and place that tupperware where you will be smoking untill its acclimation process is complete. While its acclimating, the tobacco should be stirred every hour so all the juices are exposed to the environment. After acclimation is completed, keep the tupperware sealed. Only time you'll really have to reacclimate is if there is a severe weather/humidity change.

2. Noir is the strong, potent stuff. Lucid is washed and the flavors arent as potent. Some flavors only work in the lucid line (i.e. chocolate cherry) and some only work in Noir line.

3. I dont know why others like tangiers, but i like it because of its taste and the duration of the tobacco. Also, it feels good to know that ive mastered packing such a "hard to work"(even though i find it not hard to work with at all) tobacco.

4. Lucid = no buzz for me. Noir = no buzz for me

5. Using a phunnel, the juices dont drip down. Yes it keeps the stem clean, but thats not its purpose. Its purpose is to keep the tobacco moist for a longer period of time which means you can smoke it for longer period while keeping flavor.
