Default How do you acclimate the right way?

so i know you have to acclimate your shisha by leaving it out for a while, how do you know when its acclimated enough though? would it be different for different brand's of shisha or is there just a general time frame for acclimation?

I like to spread it out and mix it periodically until it smells excellente.

I never acclimate, and smoke is always fine. I guess it would be needed for tangiers, which i havent smoked, but otherwise you are fine

Tangiers is the only shisha that needs acclimating as was previously stated. the way i do it is to put it in a tubberware then leave it open then stir every 30 min do this for four hours

the way i acclimate everything including tangiers is take it out of the package it came in, smoke it. (guess ive gotten lucky with tangiers). but if you want to acclimate a tobacco you should use a shot wide plastic tupperware/zip lock, etc container mix the tobacco up well and let it sit, then when done just use it to store the tobacco. it can take 30 mins to 2 days depending how off the tobacco is
