Default Idea to fix bad tobacco - is it good?

I recently bought some Nakhla orange molasses and I it's really bad. As is too many sticks and stems and no leaves. Also it's a bit dry. I was thinking about putting it in the grinder and puree it and then add some honey and glycerine then maybe mix if with some other tobacco I have around . .that has more leaves. What do you think? should I go for it?

Maybe just take a knife to it and give it a good chop?

nakhla is dry normally, but it should be fine if you mix it with other shishas without doing anything to it

I recently got a 250g of Nakhla Sherazade Earl Grey and a 250g of Nakhla Fakhfakhina Mixed Fruits. They were both very dried out. I determined that the mixed fruits was really beyond repair, but I was able to reconstitute the Earl Grey by adding roughly 5 tablespoons of glycerine and 2 tablespoons of honey. I smoke it as a 50/50% mix with AF Orange and its quite good.

Mende you sound like you haven't even tried smoking it yet. There's two parts of the tobacco you find in your shisha. Leaves and stems. I am positive your shisha is not 100% stems. The leaves can be stuck together in balls just as with any shisha because of the way it's packaged tightly.

Nakhla's supposed to be dry. Been that way for years. Just cause it's not like AF etc doesn't mean it's bad shisha. Pick out the stems, there's not that many i'm sure, smoke and enjoy. If it's too dry due to being old or leaving it out, a few spoonfuls of glycerin or honey's all it takes. Anyone who can manage their heat can get great smoke with dry shisha.

I leave in the stems and it smokes just fine. I really like Nakhla.

Well that's the deal! I smoked it 4 times or more. ..and it was terrible! No smoke and huge headaches. WEnt thru 3 brands of charcoal both quicklite and fingers! no change! I'm sure it's the tobacco . .
I know there are sticks in tobacco but this one's 70-80%sticks! no leaf material at all .. It just turns into charcoal in 10 minutes after you start smoking. The smoke isn't thick at all. Maybe I just got what was left on the bottom of a vat of tobacco at the factory. I'll experiment with it and tell you the results.

take it out and spread it on a chopping board and chop it up a little, skip the blender/puree machine, it'd be too fine. Just take a heavy knife to it and see if packing it a little tighter in your bowl will help your smoking experience. If not, try adding a little bit of flavor to it. Honey may help out your smoke thickness, but won't help out the taste at all... lemme know how it ends up working for you
