Normal Pack:

Fluff pack the standard amount of tobacco into your bowl and tap it down slightly to reduce air gaps. This method creates a more uniform top layer and makes heat management easier.

Semi-Dense Pack:

Use slightly more tobacco than you normally would and fluff it into the bowl, focusing on minimizing air gaps in all layers. This method provides a longer-lasting session and requires less heat management.
