Flue cured tobacco has a low ph, high sugar content & medium to high nicotine content.
Fire cured tobacco has a low ph, low sugar content & high nicotine content.
Air cured tobacco has a high ph, low sugar content & variable nicotine content.
Sun cured tobacco has a high ph, low sugar content & the nicotine levels are determined by climatic conditions high in dry climates low in wet climates.
When flue cured tobacco is burnt the PH will continue to become progressively more acidic whereas air/fire/sun cured tobacco becomes progressively more alkaline.
The PH directly affects the way the nicotine will enter your body. In tobacco with a low PH the nicotine is ionized & will travel down to your lungs & is absorbed there. In tobacco with a high PH the nicotine is not ionized & is easily absorbed by the mucous membranes in your mouth.
how does all this compare to sweating in a plastic bag?
thats all iv done and works for me, could this method be making my nic content low or not as easly taken up with my cigs?
the more i sweat it does it loose more nic? (theres often a brown liquard in the bag) nicotine?
