I see the "washed and unwashed" question all over this site. To reiterate this.... Social Smoke tobacco is UNWASHED. Period.

Must be damn weak tobacco then. the natural flavor of Virginian tobacco is easily discernible from others, and it is very, very rich. I tasted no Virginian notes at all in either flavors I tried, and neither presented any evidence of a medium or even low nicotine content.

I wish I could have taken the tour of the factory. Sounds like a lot of fun and I would like to know how it is done. The tobacco is unwashed. I got a slight buzz off of it, but not as much as I get from nakhla.

I have no ties to Social Smoke and based on what I saw Abrahim .. you are in fact manufacturing, making, assembling, etc. your tobacco in Arlington, Texas, USA. Working from a dry leaf into a final product entirely in house.

Pictures have been provided from my visit. Showing various stages of your manufacturing process, what I could without showing any of your trade secrets.

Multiple Social Smoke owners obviously took time out of their busy work days, flew out a few hookah connoisseurs to judge, put them up in a hotel room, fed them, etc. Everything was on their dime so that they could disprove the accusations that John from ********** / ************* made towards Social Smoke.

Let's not forget that other people (me included) had to take time out of our busy schedules to fly to Texas, spent time away from family, miss business, etc. in order to be a judge concerning the proposed bet.

Hookah Pro is for hookah enthusiasts / hobbyists and is not a place to throw accusations around from vendor to vendor in efforts to smear each others' names publicly. I am very disappointed to see that it came to that in public on the Hookah Pro forum. This whole ordeal is being discussed in the Moderator section.

My findings are located at the top of this thread. Two other judges have posted their findings as well. This needs to be resolved a.s.a.p. three of us took time out of our busy schedules, work, families, etc. in order to report our findings. Like I said .. mine are up top. I will be even more disappointed if this is NOT resolved after all the time and energy I have put into this along with everyone else. Our sole purpose was to witness the manufacturing process, which I did witness with my own two eyes and my iPhone!

I am done with this discussion. Resolutions between Hookah John / ******* Hookah and Social Smoke need to happen via another means other than through the Hookah Pro Community.

Closing this thread ..

I haven't heard anything about this .. hopefully it is being worked on in the background in order to come to a resolution.
