Default Overpacking the bowl.

It really works. I got about 20% more flavor from nakhla sweet lemon.

i would rate it 10 for the strength on taste.

i will deff try this method again, only con is the draw is weak.

I was done smoking, went to the store, and still could taste the flavor.

Do you get tight draw? I poked through the tobacco but it was still tight draw.

Nakhla is pretty cheap, It would get expensive to pack a 30g starbuzz for 1 session.

i was just wondering cause nakhla isnt really easy to find in my area. I've mostly seen Layalina, al waha, fantasia, starbuzz, hydro, and romman. So if i could intensify the flavors for some of those, why not =]

Nakhla can take a lot of heat so, if you overpack with other brands you will just be burning the tobacco on top and it wont be enjoyable. I get huge clouds with Al Fakher by puffing and sprinkling the tobacco in the bowl so, no need to overpack and waste your tobacco with Al Fakher or similarly cut tobacco.

The things about Nakhla is that it's very heat sensitive. If you try to smoke it the normal way, it's hard to get decent clouds and not burn it. The overpack method makes the smoke nice and smooth with big clouds.

If you have a restricted draw, try to poke through the bottom of the bowl with a big skewer and poke through every hole. Make BIG holes and smaller holes around these main ones.
