what? what are you talking about

Homogenized leaf is tobacco and other things that has been pressed into a cardboard like consistancy, much like how wood is pressed into paper. Cheap machine made cigars use them primarily. If you look at a Phillies cigar you will notice a very smooth, wierd looking wrapper with no viens in sight. That is a homogenized wrapper.

so homogenized is pretty much machine made and non is just natural? i was just looking online at some machine mades and non and it said black n milds are homogenized and backwoods are not??? so i guess that makes sense...

Yep. Backwoods are machine-made but aren't homogenized - they're all natural and wrapped in an actual tobacco leaf as opposed to "tobacco paper." Homogenized basically means processed - "to make the same." For example the wrappers of Swishers are all consistent in color and texture; they're the same, smooth, unnatural-looking paper wrapper - "homogenized."

Forgive me for assuming you knew what the word homogenized meant. My answer was completely logical if the word homogenized had ever been inserted into your vocabulary. I apologize for trying to help.

homoginized usually means that its tobacco and papper ground into a pulp and made into a paper like wrapper...

Homoginized basically means it has been blended to the point where it is no longer seperate components. Think Italian salad dressing (regular, not creamy) it is usually seperated into oil, and then vinegar and spices. When you shake the bottle, you are homoginizing it into one liquid.

It is often used for machine made cigars because it is more resistant to tearing when rolled on the machines.
