What shisha gives you the best buzz?
I smoke nakhla and I get a great buzz but my friend who is a smoker does not get anything.
What can I do so he gets a buzz?
Thanks guys

Al fakher is washed, it ain't gonna do a thing. Nicotine content is almost non-existant.

Sounds like it's time you entered the amazing world of traditional nargile tobacco! Try some Desi Murli or Nakhla Zaghloul. If you really want to pack a wallop, get a hold of some tombac.

That said, the buzz really shouldn't be the point. If I feel like a need a buzz, I reach for a bottle of patron or Bombay Sapphire. Tobacco, for me at least, is about flavor, ritual, and contemplation.

Good question. Nothing I've tried so far has given what I'd call a buzz. But then, I smoke it more for the flavor and the peacefulness and relaxation of smoking hookah. I've never tried the more natural shishas, though, so those might change my comment. Smoke happy.

Nakhla zaghloul desi murli or tangiers are your best bet for heavy buzzes although since it is a nicotine buzz your friend might not get buzzes simply coz his nic tolerance is porbably really high. I have heard that smoking first thing in the morning gives a killer buzz but I have not tried that yet. Also smoking on and empty stomach could increase the buzz factor. Under packing your bowl could also help bit you have to be carefully about carbon monoxide poisoning.

I believe smoking on an empty stomach is also likely to cause mild nausea.

From what I've heard around HookahPro, Tangiers and Nakhla give the best buzz.

Things that can help for a better buzz:
- Like Malfean said, empty stomach
- Smoke much in a row. You will get a higher buzz if you keep pulling. If you get 20 pulls in a row, you probably will get a better/higher buzz than when you get one pull, stop for a min and take another pull.

I like the Desi Murli Buzz, its subtle and relaxed, other buzzes from .5 tobaccos are not as pleasant
Someone replied with AF...AF is .05 a tenth of unwashed tobaccos if its giving him a buzz its cause he is robbing is brain of oxygen, not from the tobacco itself

I don't smoke for the buzz but Nakhla normally does the trick for me.

Saddly I haven't tried Nakhla, but I have had a lot of Hookah-Hookah, Al Fakher, and Starbuzz.

Hookah-Hookah and Starbuzz all seem to give me a really big buzz at the beginning but then not much else throughout the rest of the smoke. Of course Starbuzz is stronger, but HH is cheaper so...

Al Fakher is my favorite because not only will I get a large buzz, but I normally get quite a few separate ones throughout the course of the session. Its like having multiple orgasms!

Also look into getting Tangiers because it contains 10 times the nicotine as SB and other washed tobaccos.

Nakhla usually gives me a bit of a buzz. Just tell your friend to smoke on an empty stomach and see how it goes. If that doesn't work try some of the tobacco's mentioned above. Also why do you want your friend to get a buzz lol

There is so much wrong with these statements, I don't know where to begin.

Hookah-hookah, Starbuzz, and Al Fakher are all washed tobaccos. That means their nicotine content is nearly non-existant.

Believing that starbuzz is stronger because of it's price point is erroneous as well. Starbuzz is using the same weak-bodied virginia tobacco that's boiled until there's nothing left but the cellulose. Starbuzz is, despite the price point, the same basic can of stuff as AF, HH, Havana, or any other syruppy, washed brand. They charge more because they know people will pay for the illusion of quality.

It's most likely that you're getting your buzz from either the CO output (What coals are you using?), or Lack of oxygen (How big and how often are you hitting the pipe?). I don't believe you are experiencing a true nicotine buzz.

I get the best buzz from tangiers.. juicy peach and orange soda are great. you have to prepare it differently than other shisha, but its def worth it. The flavors are soooo strong and the buzz is great.

Try More Nak, Desi Murli, even Tangiers can pack a buzz.

Hookah shouldnt be about the buzz though. If you are looking for a buzz get some Dokha. If your interested in Dokha and Medwakh PM me ..

You have to remember the guy looking for a buzz has already smoked Nakhla which is considerably stronger than SS, HH, SB and AF. If you are looking for a nicotine buzz these are some of the worst tobaccos to use. Go with Tangiers or Desi Murli.

Tangiers definitely. When I first smoked the orange soda flavor I was done after a max of 10 pulls. My girlfriend was done from my exhales (jk, but it was a one and done for her.)

Last time I was at Texas Hookah (the store in Houston) he had a product called "add buzz to your shisha" or something like that. It was a small pouch of brown powder that he claimed was pure nicotine. If you want to add buzz to starbuzz or washed tobacco sprinkle some of that on it and I assume it will get the buzz you want.

Get some Nicotina Rustica and prepare it like tombac. That's a guaranteed buzz.
