    Never needed that. Maybe if you have moist weed. Tobacco is necessary with hash though.

    If you're afraid of nicotine there are a lot of alternatives. Dried mint for one.

    I always find a joint without tobacco doesnt burn properly, I always sprinkle it on.


    And if the taste is the problem, I normally cant taste the tobacco much if its loaded with weed.

    SWIM usually uses half a cigarette's worth of tobacco and a 1/4 of a gram weed in my joints. He always puts tobacco in his joints because it burns smoother and for some reason, doesn't cause as much cotton mouth. Damn, I love my weed. Wish he could get a better connection though. He has some orange bud at the moment so times are good...for now.

    its the europeans who do that shit. i think it might be because in america there is tons of commercial buds, "regs" and "mids". in europe and canada probably mostly are dealing with kind bud grown domestically in fairly large plots , but it has never been bricked for overseas exportation. in the states we get kind bud too, but regs are so so very cheap. and by kind bud i mean any of the royal hybrids (20%+ THC). but in america i don't know anyone who throws tobacco in (even for the most chronic of weed), if its too moist we just smoke out of glass pieces.

    Canada exports billions of dollars worth of weed to the US so dont think that we dont know how to smoke.

    I find tobacco helps it burn and it gets you higher so its a doubly good thing, its basicly a blunt well kinda.

    Here in the states, almost no one mixes tobacco with they're weed. Not only that, but many people will think you are crazy if you bring it up. They don't realize it's a common thing in Europe. And as BrandonAA
    said, glass peices work good for smoking moist stuff. Swim just throws it in a bowl with perhaps some burning herbs and tokes away.

    In my experience of seeing people smoke around the world this is what I have observed:

    USA: Mainly "pinner doobies" when smoking in joint form. Quickly thrown together mini-joints, no hassle involved. Tendancy to use bongs in order to make the most of the weed.

    Ireland: Long, thin joints using thick rolling papers (I know, it's horrible) containing both tobacco and weed/hash. SWIM rolls his joints quite differently from the standard Irish method. Blunts are practically unheard of.

    Britain: Very similar to Ireland though they tend to roll their joints with thinner papers (which is a good thing).

    Australia: Similar to British joints with the use of tobacco, but bong use is more common because weed is more predominant than hash.

    Holland: The Dutch roll their joints backwards, roach in whilst rolling, to use as little paper as possible. These are the best joints I have seen but are also the trickiest to roll. Naturally, seeing as Holland is practically "The Land of Cannabis", people use all sorts of crazy bongs, vapourisers, hookahs etc.

    In holland (I live there) many people use very much tabbaco, 2/4 or 3/4
    cig most of the times, with there joints but they use a lot of weed
    though (0.5 G).

    I prefer just a tiny bit because that gives me a better high than with
    lots of tabbaco, just a tiny bit for the burning, you almost won't
    notice the tabbaco.



    And i have a tip that will get you [email protected]€king high:

    take a lemon, drill 2 holes in it so you can suck trough it but make
    sure that one hole is big enough for the joint or you can make a bowl
    of it with an bowl from a bong or so (just be creative) and smoke
    through the lemon, you'll be wasted

    You can use other types of fruit also like bananas, apples, limes, or oranges or other kinds of fruit



    here's are some pictures of such a "fruit pipe"

    put some weed or hash or both in the apple and light it

    In Australia mixing weed with tobacco is common. Especially with smoking bongs. Joints are pretty much the same either way. The main reason I do it is because somewhere along the track he heard that the tobacco releases a chemical into your brain which enables you do induce a better high. Although weather this is true is up for debate.

    have read that English use tobacco because they smoke a lot of hash. I prefer tobacco anyway, feel it burns more completely
