Default Nakhal Sweet Melon Issue

So i bought nakhla sweet melon...opened it and found very little juice. I put it in a plastic container and mixed it around to get the juice flowing but didnt get alot of juice. I also have nakhla double apple and that has plenty of juice( got my hands soaked you could say). But my sweet melon got very little and when i smoked it the taste was barely there. Any ideas on why there wasn't any juice or is it just nakhla's way of packing their sweet melon, and how can i get some juice flowing in my sweet melon. thanks...

Nakhla does not have much juice.

Except for the Mizo Line.

+1

most nakhla is "dry" more like oily. and i find that it doesn't take much heat at all to get this stuff goin good. sweet melon is defiantly a good flavor though

i have sweet melon. It's very dry. You don't have anything to worry about there. As for the flavor, it's full of it. get the heat management down and you'll enjoy it.

Its not so much dry as the other stuff is just soaking wet.

Let me go ahead and say that the way fantasia and epic do it is just wrong. I like some tobacco with my flavoring.

Nakhla does it the right way man.

As stated, sweet melon is pretty dry. Though I have never found it to be lacking flavor. If you are having issues with flavor or smoke, try adding vegetable based glycerin to the bowl.

Mate, there is no such thing as "better brand" than Nakhla. (Of course all of this is subejective)
Nakhla is always dryer than other brands and can handle a bit more heat.

^^ told to someone who smoked Nakhla exclusively for 9 years and literally grew up and living where Nakhla is made


Dude .... Nakhla is the worst and cheapest tobacco ever made IMO.

probably part that it was so abundant to you for so long.

kind of the same way that i grew up right by busch gardens and hate it while other people travel to just come ride some stupid rides and spend way to much money on bad foods.

Its just a matter of preference... There is a proverb that says "one man's trash is another mans treasure"
I love Nakhla. Its the only brand that taste natural and has a nice more "full" texture in the smoke. (fumari is the other one)
