That is a really broad question that I don't think can be answered easily. Basically different sorts of tobacco plants have widely divergent levels of nicotine and the flavours very with climates, shade soil issues. As important as the leaf type is the way the leaf is cured/fermented and aged. I guess I'd like to know a bit more about what you're wanting to know?

Do you mean a tobacco brand? Well i know Tangiers (probably the widest known baccy for its great taste and buzz...but a very tricky tobacco b/c it is hard to get it to smoke) is one.

Nakhla also gives off a crazy buzz...but it take a lil while to get it to smoke right since it is pretty dry. Al Waha has a nic level of 0.5 like the rest of the baccys listed and it does give off a good buzz. But ehhh imo AW doesn't really give off good flav. The african kiwi is kinda good tho

That's all I know on top of my head that gives good buzz

EDIT:

Oh yea Afzal does give off a big one...but imo the flavs I have come across aren't that great.

The rest of the baccys I know such as AF, AL Amir, Fantasia, and Fusion give off low buzzes. But if someone is knew to hookah smoking, the low ones will give off a big buzz since they aren't used to it.

I think the one with the lowest nic level is Starbuzz. It has 0.05. I think it is cuz the brand gives off way more flavor and clouds than nic and thats why a lot of people seem to like it

And in my opinion on the high buzz tobaccos he listed,

Tangiers gives the longest lasting buzz and most pronounced buzz
Nakhla gives a medium lasting buzz that lasts for about the first 15mins of a session
Al Waha gives a short buzz that is easily refreshed by taking another few hits

You can easily tell if a brand is going to give you the "buzz" or not. There are two types of shisha ...washed and unwashed...Washed being brands like Starbuzz, Romman, Al Fahker etc.....Unwashed would be like a Tangiers.
Washed shishas are often lighter in color more like a golden color and the unwashed is usually very dark like Tangiers and Nahkla...Also your washed shishas have a lower nicotine content like 0.03 (i think) where as Nahkla has a 0.05% nicotine content and Im not sure of tangiers....hope this helped
