tangiers, nakhla and fantasia iirc (this one ive seen both claims on) but the first 2 are the big names that are unwashed most everything else is or is at least thought of as washed, the only difference really is how much you get hit by the nicotine and also a little bit of flavor but it also is probably as much if not more influenced by type and cut of tobacco

This isn't the issue at hand. That isn't why I posted the thread. In fact, I'd prefer a shisha with a higher nicotine content. And yes there is official average ATF measurements for nicotine content in the final product. I know Romman tobac and hookah-hookah (both of which go through the final package and distribution in the US and thus pass standards tests o fthe ATF both measured .5% nic. in the tobac. Sinbad which is based out of San diego has .3% while on the other end of the nicotine spectrum, starbuzz, which is also out of california has just .05%. It doesn't matter whether its a 1 kilo pack or a 10 g bowl, it all still has .5% of the total final product by weight; the gram weight is all relative. to put things in perspective an average cigarette in the US has 1.5% nicotine by weight or 13 mg per cigarette. My main issue is determining how much nicotine is most of the foreign brands with ambiguous and contradicting measurements. Like I said earlier its not a moral issue, I just want to know which brand n flavor have what percent nicotine, and which to trust the label and which not to, despite the 4 mentioned above that we know contain .5, .5, .3, and .05% respectively.
