Default shisha strenghth

I was wondering if different brands of hookah tobacco vary in strength? I've gotten more of a buzz from the smoke at hookah bars than the smoke from my own hookah. I also don't have a windcover so I'm wondering if that my be affecting the amount/potency of the smoke. Answers would be greatly appreciated.

buzz comes from the nicotine content. there are brands that are unwashed, and brands that are washed.

washed brands usually provide minimal buzz (if any). unwashed delivery a kick to the nads.

what tobacco are you using

well sometimes i get LIGHT HEADED... and it feels a little like a buzz.
would light headed be more apropriate or is BUZZ what you actually mean??

But i get light headed sometimes if i'm getting alot more smoke than usual, or if it's been awhile since i smoked from my KM ((the places i smoke other than home don't use hookahs that generate as much smoke))

the lightheadedness is the buzz starting to kick in. as scoop said its about about nicotine content, not if you use a windcover or whatnot. The amount of nicotine in the tobacco and how much you smoke will change how bad it is. plus dont chain it, we dont need passing out lol

Scoop not pushing Tangiers?

That's a first, so I'll take over.

Tangiers. End of story.

Nakhla packs the best buzz, and they have some many great flavors! It is inexpensive and easy to setup. Give it a try

Cheers!

Another thing to take into consideration if your getting lightheaded, you may not be getting enough O2. Lounges have alot more smoke roaming around, plus I've noticed that I smoke MORE at one.

But Nakhla and Tangiers Noir are the two more BUZZING shisha tobacoo's that I've smoked. Al Waha has a good buzz, but it's different - more sleeply and mellow than either Nakhla or Tangiers. Experiment with different brands and such not....

And I believe completehookah.com lists which brand is washed and not.
