Default Does alfalker have a lot of nicotine?

I've been smoking mainly starbuzz lately but I just smoked alfalker and I have minor nausea as if I got too much nicotine. Is alfalkrr strong or is starbuzz weak?

Both AF and Starbuzz wash their tobaccos. They're essentially nicotine free. The nausea you felt could have been a mild case of CO poisoning.
What coals were you using?

I think AF is .05%? nicotine or I might be making that up not too sure. I actually normally get more of a buzz from starbuzz then AF. Not anything close to the Nakhla buzz though.

Im avoiding the buzz because I smoked cigs for 10 years and I like to keep my nicotine habit under control. Does that mean I should stay away from nakhla?

If you are trying to stay away from the buzz then I would say definitely stay away from Nakhla. Most of the containers that the tobaccos come in should say the nicotine content. If you don't want the buzz at all just take some time in between hits and you should be fine.

One thing I have noticed about AF Watermelon is a weird tingly throat feeling. I don't get it all the time, but it does make it kind of unpleasant to smoke. I do enjoy smoking starbuzz more then AF atleast from what Ive tryed.

It is some strong stuff, but to be fair I think I would also throw up from smoking that flavor mixture.

Nak Chery and Nak Vanila aren't the best Nak has to offer lol and if you are not used to stronger tobaccos then that is it too

If you were a smoker, smoking unwashed tobacco won't make you a nic addict like cigarettes do.

I dunno. Even my washed tobaccos bring out my addiction. Very addictive personality

Default Re: Does alfalker have a lot of nicotine?

When I started out smoking hookah I had started with the washed tobaccos such as Starbuzz, Fantasia, etc. They hardly give a buzz unless you just vacuum the hose.

Once I got sick of those I started smoking a little AF and stuck to that for awhile and then decided to try to Nak......It is definitely a tolerance thing you need to build up. I tend to jump around the gambit now of what I smoke as far as strength goes but Nak still will give me a nice buzz sometimes.

If you just want to smoke without the buzz stick to the washed tobaccos and just smoke slowly. The only AF that still will give me a little buzz is the Mint for some reason.....I have no idea why.

Good luck with that man, I still find myself lighting up after nak or dm. Probably the only hookah tobacco that keeps the cig craving for me at bay is khan, but even that is temporary.

In response to your original question, no, Al Fakher does not have a lot of nicotine. It's a mere 0.05% by volume (compared to Nakhla's 0.50%). Al Fakher, however, is a mediocre brand in comparison to several others out there. Often times, the flavor (if you can call it that) alone is bad enough to make me feel sick.

AF is like virtually all moassel (that's the stuff you smoke out of a water pipe which the Egyptians call a shisha) has negligible amounts of nicotine. Even all of the Nakhla black products, save Kass and Bata, have rather low levels of nicotine so if you are silly enough to worry about about nicotine you should feel good knowing that it's a very minor part of almost anything you can buy moassel wise in the Western world.

In any case, you aren't going to be getting full nicotine exposure when you smoke moassels for the simple reason that the vapour drawn off the tobacco/glycerin/molasses/flavouring mixture isn't done at a high enough temperature to efficiently extract the nicotine from the tobacco. What I find interesting is that I can smoke a cigar the night before going in for a insurance exam and be listed as non-smoker do to a lack of nicotine in my bloodstream. The reason that happens is because I don't inhale cigars since I am only interested in the taste and I smoke narghiles the same way. The bottom line is that if you are worried about nicotine intake then change the way you smoke.

I like AF better than the vast majority of Nakhla flavors I've smoked. In fact the only brand I like better than AF is Fumari. And I've smoked a lot of different brands. Don't get me wrong, AF makes some horrible flavors (I only smoke grape w/ mint, orange, and mint) but who doesn't. That doesn't make them a mediocre product. The tobacco they use is definitely better than Nakhla IMO. And I fucking hate the buzz from nicotine, it makes me feel gross.
