Does fermentation process needs oxigen? now I ferment half year in my appartments, in big black plastic bags to keep it in room temp, 65-75% RH/ Mainly it is TN90. Every week I ventilate it to give new oxigen. Not really gives a nicotine kick. In internet-youtube i found that many peoples ferments the tobacco in closed glass jars. From other side I found explanation that fermentisation is oxiidising reactin thats needs oxigen. So i'm little confused.

juris, fermentation is Not oxidation.

Fermentation is anaerobic.. in the absence of oxygen.

Good to periodically release the noxious gases formed during fermentation so they do not impart bad flavor to the leaf.

There is no cure method that will Increase nicotine level.

Best to contact a commercial seed grower/seller and inquire about high content, if that is what you desire.
