What Is This In Nakhla Always Holding The Tobacco Together? [Pic]

Recommended Posts

Hey guys im wondering what this stuff is I ALWAYS find in Nakhla, It's hard to spread the tobacco when this is always holding it together and I don't feel safe always putting it in my bowl. Well here it is, I only find it in Nakhla, I might have found it ONCE in AF but i'm not sure.

It just makes the tobacco harder to spread. Anyone know what it is and why its always only in Nakhla?

Less molasses is used for Nakhla [more juice, more friction, less "attached to each other"].

Plus Nakhla does not do fine cuts, so there is less friction between the tobacco, and leaves tend to stick on each other. My theory at least.

I dunno what it is tbh. All I know is that its brighter then the rest of the tobacco and that it is really stickey and hard to pull apart.

PS: I can't really see what you are showing, but I can tell you that all the cluttered up "objects" in my tobacco were just a bunch of leaves stuck to each other.

Yeah god forbid you might put sometihng cancer causing in your bowl, set something else cancer causing on top and inhale. Weird Nak chemicals are probably the least of your problems.

I know exactly what you are talking about ... not sure what it is, but yes, you should be able to safely assume it is part of the plant. - That is what I have always thought it was.

You're talking about that white sticky shit that looks like something my cat would puke up...

I pack it, I smoke it, I enjoy it.

i am familiar with what you're talking about too, Brandon...

if you smoke a lot of nakhla, you'll notice that sometimes you'll come across a bright yellow leaf that is somewhere in between feeling like a leaf and wood...

and like John, i have no idea what it is either...but, i treat it the same as the "regular" leaves...doesn't usually affect anything...

I've been smoking nakhla since before it was cool and I've NEVER seen anything like that, but I do control my univers so everything is generally copesthetic.

If you've never seen it, then you haven't smoked enough nakhla :)

Haven't seen you around in a while bud, welcome back!

Indeed. I always wonder what it is. Then i realize that its cool to get cancer, so i pack it in.

Really, your smoking unhealthy things. Im sure its just part of the leaf or something.

Yea I wasnt to sure, But why would it be only in Nakhla? Why not any other brands? I usually pack it anyways but for you that haven't seen it, you must still be on your first box because I see it every 250G I open thats not completly dried out.

I have opened a bunch of Nak lately and have only come a crossed it once. It was in the mint. All the other flavors I have gotten (12 or so) have not had one.

I've always thought it was a stem with some leaf on it. I usually try to break it, or cut it with sissors and load it in the bowl.
