Why Do Cigars Burn Unevenly?

Cigars burn unevenly for several reasons. If you do not light a cigar properly, it may burn unevenly. It’s very important to “toast” a cigar before you light it. This will insure an even burn.

Another reason for an uneven burn is the humidity of the cigar. If part of the cigar is dry and part moist, it will burn unevenly.

A windy day can also cause a cigar to burn unevenly. The wind will accelerate the burn area where the wind hits it.

Cigar construction can also affect the burn. If the filler is not bunched correctly, the cigar may burn unevenly.

A plugged cigar will cause an uneven burn because the draw will be uneven.

Why Do Cigars Make You Lightheaded?

Cigars and tobacco contain nicotine which can make you feel nauseous, dizzy and sweaty. These symptoms are caused by a overdose of nicotine from a strong cigar.

Nicotine is both a stimulant and relaxant. It is absorbed through the inner lining of your mouth from the cigar smoke. It then goes straight into your bloodstream.

Advice: Limit your exposure to cigar smoke until you have built up a tolerance for nicotine.
