    hi everyone,

    Of all the blends that i have and sampled. Only one has given me a major headrush or head ache and a feelling of wanting to be sick and this tobacco is ABF from Solani. I was wondering what is it in a tobacco that will cause someone to feel like this ?

    Is it the nicotine that is stronger in ABF?

    Never smoked Solani.

    I have however, smoked an hour straight bowl of C&D's Epiphany, and GL Pease Barbary Coast. I smoked pretty fast since I LOVED both blends.

    I used to smoke cigarettes off and on, and Marboro Reds are pretty nicotine packed. I smoked 6 of 'em in a row at one point, and the same feeling came over me.

    My guess? The nicotine. With both blends, and the coffin-nails, I got the same thing as you. I'm almost certain its the high nicotine content.

    Burley tobaccos tend to be higher in nicotine than virginias. I haven't had any problems with ABF but I've gotten the spins from others.

    ABF is pretty strong. C/D BF#3 is as bad. Just a straight shot of nicotene, right between the eyes. Bleck.

    Sick.

    Even stuff like 1792 doesn't hit me as bad as these burleys. I thought I was gonna die when I smoked BF3, and I never even came close to finishing a bowl. As soon as I lit it I was done.

    I buy the bad burley theory.

    I smoked three bowls in a row of Kendal Kentucky a couple of weeks back. The sweats hit me halfway through the third bowl. Now, something with a large VA component, like Bosun Cut Plug, can be smoked all day with no ill effects.
