Default Bowl packing

Generally, when you fill a bowl how many grams is it?

Assuming it's a standard mod bowl, and you have your usual 50g, how much is the perfect amount in grams to fill a bowl?

Thanks for the input

Unless you really weigh the shisha it is hard to judge how much you are really using. If it is swimmimg in juice it will weigh more than say nakhla. A standard Egyptian clay bowl holds about 13 G of Nakhla or 15 G of juicy stuff. Small Super Chief bowl holds anywhere from 23 - 32 G.

Fill the bowl LOOSELY to about 1/4 inch from the foil. Then the air will circulate properly.

i don't go by grams i usually break the shisha up real well into the bowl then i fill it up to the top until i reach 5mm in between the bowl and the shisha. It always smokes real great for me.

I have a small egyptian clay bowl, but I also don't use grams. I usually have shisha sprinkled in the bowl jus to the level where there's a little clearance between the foil and the shisha; and a 50g box of shisha will last about three to five bowls, depending on if I smoke by myself or with friends.
