What gives Flake Tobacco itís Mike Tyson-like qualities?
Hello again Gentlemen, I hope this post finds you well and that all of your Baccy cellars are filled to capacity. Last night, while smoking some flake tobacco with some buddies (and after I recovered from the knockout blow that seemed to hit me about ĺ of the way through the bowl) I began pondering this question, and so I figured I would post it here.
I have been a pipe smoker for just under a year now, and I have noticed (with not much effort) that fake tobaccos often have quite a knockout punch to them. Since being introduced to the wonderful world of pipes and pipe tobacco I have found that I very much enjoy many of the flake tobaccos, but I must admit (with some hesitation) that usually by the time I finish the bowl, my head is swimming with Vitamin N goodness. In one such instance, about a month ago, (after smoking a large bowl of University flake) I found myself hit so hard by the flake tobacco, that while attempting to remove a pizza from my oven (which seemed at the time to be a moving target), I burned my arm, and now have a nice ďreminder scarĒ of how flakes seem to effect me. I guess my question is, besides the factor that I may have a low tolerance for nicotine, do Flake tobaccos have (on average) higher levels of nicotine?
I know this may be a noob-ish question, but my 3-inch scar on my arm demands that I have answers. ☺
Thanks for any insight you can offer
