Question Would it be a bad idea to...

layout your batch of nakhla on a cutting board, pull out most of the stems, and give it a finer cut with a knife?

Apparently, that will give you an even bigger buzz. So if you like that, go ahead and try it, but if you're not used to big buzzes, don't.

I smoked some regular Nakhla Apricot the other day and I was hitting it too fast... I couldn't even finish the bowl because of the Nicotine overload.

I just thought about it because the thick cut often restricts my air flow. and I like the cut of AF.

Stop this stem discrimination right now chop the stems up it is tobacco as well they smoke perfectly well and gives the tobacco some extra kick that is why one of my main items in my hookah case is a a good sharp kitchen scissors

One of the most sensible bits of advise I've read on this site.
So many say that Nakhla has too many stems, I never pull out the stems, I don't even cut them, I simply mash the stems up with the leaves, it the stem is too large, I'll break it up a little first.

Great advise...."Smoke the stems".

The reason why you should take out the stems is that stems contain far more nicotine then leaf while holding none of essential oils that impart flavour to tobacco. Since taking out, cutting up and mixing back in the stems is more work then simply throwing them away I can't imagine any reason to keep them. Since excessive amounts of stems is a sign of poor quality control I avoid brands that have excessive amounts of stems.

It’s a GREAT idea and so easy to do. I enjoy experimenting with the finest of the cut. I cut up my nakhla using kitchen shears which I find is the best way. I usually just cut up enough for 1 bowl.
You will find that the shisha is a LOT more heat tolerant and that your smoking session will last twice as long.
This is the way to go if you are always burning the shsiha or are low on shsiha

It’s so easy that everyone has got to try it!

Oh yah..I also smoke Zaghloul without using foil

I hate stems too. But, in reference to this. You answered your own question, stems are pure nicotine pretty much, if you leave them in it'll give you a bigger buzz. (I'm still gonna pick em' out though)
