So I see we have a drug thread and a cigarettes thread....but no hookah thread.

So Pit, do any of you smoke hookah? I had actually never really heard about it until high school, and it seems like it's catching on fast now in America. I actually went and bought my own last Thursday when I turned 18. Also, what's your guys favorite flavors?

Discuss.

I think there's one somewhere, but whatevs.

I just bought a dope flavor you should try, Starbuzz Exotic Melon Blue

Smells amazing. Tastes pretty damn good too.

What in god's name is a Hookah?



It's a water pipe thingy that you used to smoke a flavored tobacco substance called sheesha.

I love lemon. I love it in everything. And hookah is no exception. Keep in mind that a lot of lemon or lemonade flavors are weak as hell.
Mango is amazing.
Blueberry is amazing.
I had key lime pie once, and it was bizarre, yet amazing
Watermelon is good, but cantaloupe is better.
Cherry is a classic, but overrated IMO.

It coated my mouth and dried out my throat and tasted like donkey dick.

I got excited when I first read "flavored" and I thought it was flavored weed...that'd be sweet
#9
ive tried smoking hookah once or twice, strawberry if i remember

so good, way smoother than cigs. It basically feels exactly like vaping
#10
I tried it once, it was alright. Mango. Just wondering, how bad is it health-wise?

Barely any negative side affects really. It has very very little nicotine and no chemicals and shit that would give you cancer or something like that

How do you know what a donkeys dick tastes like....??? Assumptions


I'm just kidding.


Hooka is pretty stupid in my opinion, I've been around my friends when they smoke it, I never do, cause I don't want that shit in my lungs, already got enough junk in my lungs.


It's basically an excuse to smoke something that resembles a bong, and it's totally legal.

Been smoking them for a few years now finally got my own a few months ago. Decided to get Starbuzz: Blue Mist to see what all the hype was about, and it really is great. Plus the place I bought it from sent me a few samples from guru tobacco which was a great plus.

As for favorites, I'm not sure what the brand is but there's a place near by that sells sheesha and they have an amazing lemon flavor.

To add to the "stay away from" list, orange. Every orange flavor I've tried tastes like the orange scented floor cleaners smell.

Almost non existent heath effects.
And if I wanted to smoke out of a bong, I'd smoke out of my bong. Hookah is good for socializing, if you've got a multi-hose and it's something to do. It's fun to blow smoke rings and it really does taste pretty good.

I recommend you try it, instead of just writing it off.

This is basically why I got my two-hoser. It's a little thing, but I bring it when i go to parties and it's always a great way to meet new people and socialize.

Rule of Smoking #1

if you burn any plant material and inhale the resulting gases, be it a pine tree, marijuana, tobacco, tea leaves, salvia, or a ****ing cucumber, you will inhale things that are not good for you.


that being said, I actually have no beef with smokers, I just wanted to make that point.

It kinda is like a water bong, you have to admit, that's what I thought it was first time I saw one. The health affect is ash and shit in my lungs, which I don't need, lungs are already bad enough as they are. Yes, I know the water is supposed to filter out the ash and stuff, but my friends always keep complaining of ash stuck in the hoses, so I would think it doesn't filter it all out through the water.

Smoking is not really my thing, yes, it does smell good, but so do air fresheners. I don't really care if other people do it, just don't be trying to force it on me.

Fun fact, you don't actually "burn" the tobacco (unless your doing it wrong). It's more like "baking" it so it vaporizes.

DISCLAIMER: Not saying there are NO harmful effects, but most people overestimate them.

The water is more for cooling than anything. If your friends are getting a lot of ash, they don't know what they're doing. They are most likely over-packing the bowl and improperly ashing their coals. If you do it right (and have a decent bowl) the water won't even change color. If it does your bowl is probably letting the molasses flow into the water.

To be honest, I don't know of many water bongs that resemble a hookah. Yeah, ash gets caught in the hoses, but you blow it out and you're fine. It's just annoying when it gets in your mouth and tastes all weird.

Also, I said "recommend."

Not forcing anything on you. Still think you shouldn't knock it before you even know what it is.

I know exactly what it is, I've set up hookah's before for my friends, they do it, and I just drink my coke and have a good time.

Tried once or twice I don't see much fun in it. There are a few coffee shops in my area where you can rent one but I would never buy one for myself.

You can buy one for about $40... Not saying you have to buy one if you don't want to, but it ends up being cheaper that way.

My best friend bought a hookah but I keep it at my apartment because we never hang out at his place cause its a hell hole, so we just smoke it at my place. We got it on sale for 40 and its a decent 4 hose one. Its really tight to smoke one session of hookah, smoke some weed, then start up the hookah again. Its so relaxing and awesome.

College is pretty much just sitting around and inhaling smoke.

There's a hookahy bar in my college town everyone goes to to either prefunk or postfunk after parties. They also sell the BEST hotdogs w/ grilled onions I've ever eaten. I actually don't like onions, but at the hookah bar...it is so good. The line streches 100 deep sometimes.

But, I'm getting an apartment w/ three friends next yr, and we are getting a hookah...AND shitty carpet to put underneath incase anyone spills. That way, no broken hookah, no holes in the carpet.


Hey, does the size of the chamber matter? It's not like a bong where you fill up the chamber then take a hit, to me it seems like it wouldn't because its going straight from the bowl into the hose.

Sweet $40. It would be amazing if I could buy one in the US but we don't have very friendly laws when dealing with drug paraphernalia, because according to mexican cops every pipe/bong/hitter/hookah is used to smoke weed.
Here in Mexico a new one with at least 3 hoses is rounding the $100-$150 USD.

I have not yet tried hookah, but I plan on purchasing on THE DAY I turn 18, which is actually four months from today.

Duuuuuude. Just get a friend to buy one for you, or go halfers. Try it!

^here's how itll go, youll be excited. youll go into the headshop and buy it with a $30 can of shisha, youll fiddle with it for 20 minutes getting the coals to light only to realize you didnt buy quick ignite coals. youll then use lighter fluid, youll get to vaping, only to realize you shouldnt have bought it at all. Then youll go back to the shop and say you found your old one. only to get into a 30 minute argument with the sikh owner of said shop.


its not that great whatsoever.

not that it happened to me, but i bought one from a guy on craigslist for $15 when i was 16, used it twice. I would rather smoke a cigarette. then some dumbass traded me a $150 bike frame for it.
