I've heard that smoking dokha provides the user with a nicotine
buzz stronger than any other -- at least when it comes to other methods of smoking tobacco
. (Hookah, pipe, cigar, cigarette, cigarillo, etc.)
Other than Nicotiana rustica, used by Amazonian shamans and in the "thuoc lao" that the Vietnamese smoke, I can't imagine anything stronger than some of these "spicy" dokhas. So I guess my question is, what kind of tobacco on steroids are they putting in dokha? Is it normal N. tabacum? Is it N. alata? A certain variety of N. tabacum?
