Eat something before you smoke and stay hydrated. That happened to me the first time I had Nakhla, but it subsides once you build a tolerance. I had been a cigarette smoker for about six years, so I had some tolerance coming in.

Sounds like the nicotine, then. Coil burners are great; makes life much easier. If you keep feeling sick, try some tobacco without a lot of buzz like Social Smoke or Fumari.

Food, water, and make sure your coals are fully lit and ashed over before smoking. AF and Starbuzz are both washed tobaccos, not too much in the way of nicotine.

Red/White Gummi Bear are my favorites. Washed tobaccos just mean it has been washed in water more than unwashed. They typically have less nicotine, but also less flavor because of the process. Washed are sometimes juicier and produce more clouds because of the juices vaporizong.

All tobaccos are washed as part of the processing, but if the tobacco is soaked in several changes of water, it lowers the nicotine content of the tobacco. Brands like Starbuzz, Al Fakher and Fumari are "washed" tobaccos, Nakhla, Salloum, Al Waha, Afzal, Desi Murli, Tangiers, etc, are considered "unwashed". Social smoke falls somewhere between the two- it has a lower nicotine content, but it has more to do with the tobacco leaf than with the washing. It's actually considered an unwashed tobacco.

Yes, Starbuzz is washed? Washing tobacco is a process for removing some of the nicotine; it also removes some of the flavor though. For some reason nicotine measurements are terribly innacurate on hookah so there are two standard nicotine ratings used that you'll see on packaging 0.05%(washed) and 0.5%(unwashed). There is a fair amount of variation within those two categories though.

The herbal stuff is gross. I picked up Fantasia herbal months ago, and it was a waste of money.

I don't know about all herbals but at least some are sugar cane which is very dangerous.

Isn't this "buzz" what people are after? Otherwise might as well smoke herbal (don't do it!)?

For some reason i just can't smoke anything but Nakhla lately. Al Fakher makes me feel nasty. I just smoke Nakhla. In my opinion they do shisha right not too wet, not too dry just perfect. Feeling queezy has a lot to do with your nicotine intake and CO intake. There will always be a level of CO when it comes to hookah smoking. You might find changing where you smoke, increasing airflow will help a lot with that and rotate your coals more regularly, not saying every minute but i find if you keep rotating more regularly it combats high CO emission from your coals seeing as they don't turn black so easy and it also helps keeping the heat at a more constant level all around the bowl instead of overheating one spot. Also check and make sure you are not burning the crap out of your shisha, that will definitely cause you to feel sick if you are not used to over packing. I for one cannot smoke overpacked i feel like death for days after.
