Default Washed

I have heard a lot of people say, "you should get washed tobacco"... What does that mean?

technically, all tobacco is washed, unless they're bugs in them. Nicotine content varies though. tangiers, al waha, nakhla, layalina, pharaohs, and others have .5% nic content. Starbuzz, al amir, al fakher, and the new batches of fusion come with .05% nic content.
some of the .5% brands don't give buzz though, but most do.

there is very little regulation on the actual % of nicotine. nearly everything is fully washed with most likely even less than .05%. even the companies that say .5%, the company doesn't actually measure, they just write the same shit other companies do.

I personally like buzzes. But, the only buzz I hate is Afzal's cuz it doesn't make me relaxed, but very sick. Eck that is why I hate that brand.

Think of it as caffeinated green tea and non-caffeinated green tea, even though the non-caffeinated has been "washed" it still has some caffeine in it, in smaller doses.
