Default UN-acclimated tangiers??

what is the REAL effect of acclimating?? like, how does it affect how the tobacco smokes?

I understand that best results occur with acclimation... but what does it actually do for the tobacco?

And what will happen if one DOESN'T acclimate before smoking.

Tobacco goes into humidity shock and makes the tobacco taste horrible, ask any of your ciar smoking buddies. Tobacco needs to acclimate to the humidity that you are currently in so as not to go "sour" for a lack of a better term. Different types of tobacco go into varying degrees of humidity shock. As for how it relates to hookah tobacco, I know some people here on this board let every bowl "rest" at least 30 minutes prior to smoking it.

I never acclimate any of the shisha tobacco I have. Who has time for that bullshyt!? lol

I have a humidor for my cigars to keep them at the humidity of their region. That is the only tobacco I humidfy/acclimate.

the time i tried to acclimate tangiers i ruined 2 things of it, the last 2 i got (they smelled ok) i put it out for like 30 mins and they got a touch better, but they were ok to start with. the lime is still not what i remember it should be but its smokable and the orange soda and schnozzberry are fine
