Where To Buy Bidis Online

33 posts in this topic

Posted

Does anyone know where you can buy beedis online? I smoked them 14 years ago and would like some and can't seem to find any in the local tobacco shops. I did a google search and all I can find is anti-smoking info about how harmful they are. Surely there must be places selling them online?

Thanks HAHkoo, but I was looking for ones with tobacco in them not tobacco free stuff. Perhaps I need to look around Phoenix a little harder?

did you try headshop type places? i know in Tucson that places like puff-n-stuff have them
No, I never tried a headshop type place. I guess I will have to head on down to one of them and see if they carry them. Thanks for the suggestion.

I was looking a while ago and found after much effort a bidi maker in India who will send them to the US. They accept paypal. They are cheap! Six bucks a carton (200) but the shipping was high. However, if you want to go in on an order, the shipping would not be so bad. Let me know if you are interested and I'll get some current details to ya. tongue.gif

I don't know about ordering them in by the cartons...I don't think I could smoke that many of them and the tobacco beetles would show up. I did find a place selling them locally here in Phoenix. $1.85 for a pack they even have rolled up a little tiny piece of cotton in them for a filter. I have to say that they are not nearly as good as I remember. Now the flavor of the wrapper is somewhat unpleasent to my taste. Shame to because I really did enjoy them 14 years ago.

oh wow....

Beedies, though smaller than regular cigarettes produce three times more carbon monoxide and nicotine, and five times more tar than a regular cigarette.

We don't get these in Canada... But I had an Indonesian friend who brought some delicious Indonesian smokes. The smoke tasted like spices and they occasionally made a cackling sound when burning. Also, the filter was coated with some sweet flavouring. I wonder if that's similar to the beedis?

Also, I remember smoking some Chinese Orange-Flavoured Menthol cigs. These were amazing as well... Although I hate menthol wink.gif

No luck finding any of them so far though :/

Those are kreteks/cloves. You can probably find some Djarums in any tobacco shop, they seem to be the most common brand around here. I usually get the Djarum Lights because they look like regular cigarettes and I don't like the extra attention I get from teenagers when I smoke the Blacks outside of work. The Blacks have a stronger flavor, though.

Thanks for the info! Are you writing from Canada? I need to check out the tobacco shop tomorrow wink.gif
edit: a quick Wiki-search and this popped up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kretek
Seems like I'll be getting some Djarum's soon. One step closer to self-destruction... Edited by erufiku

There is a place around the bend from me called the Africa House but they sell the indian tobacco bidis. So try culture shops as well as head shops.

Hrm... Djarum's look like they'd be tasty. I don't smoke cigerettes, but these seem to be a little more tasty.

Might have to stop by the local smoke shop and check these little babies out.

You wont be dissapointed, I recommend getting Djarum blacks, for a smooth clove taste, Djarum specials for just, clove. And Djarum Splash's arn't bad either, kinda fruity tasting.

Yeah, I'm definently getting some tomorrow before work. I was doing a little research (<3 google), and alot of people said they help ease some pain in the body, and give a little euphoric feeling all over and not a light-headed buzz like a regular cigerette. I hurt my elbow at work, and it hurts like hell. I wonder... I can only hope. laugh.gif

In Canada, Djarum Black cigarettes are listed as containing 42.2–76mg of tar and 1.88–3.39mg of nicotine, a significant amount more than most other cigarettes.
