Shisha/hookah - February 11th 2012, 08:31 PM

Okay, I'm not sure what kind of answers I'm gonna get here but I figured I'd ask anyway since the rest of the internet is letting me down right now.

I'm interested in tobacco free shisha. Are there any sort of health risks in this?

Secondly, can you vapourise shisha? I'm not a huge fan of smoking anything and obviously inhaling any kind of smoke into your lungs presents some health risks so I'd prefer to vapourise it if that's possible.

Re: Shisha/hookah - February 11th 2012, 11:23 PM

I'm not an expert on this, but I did a tad bit of research and pulled from what I already knew. There is herbal shisha, claiming not to have tobacco in it. There are still risks, though. You are still smoking it, which is releasing the harmful carcinogens into your lungs that causes cancer and other harmful effects. Also, it can still contain tar and nicotine even if it claims not to have tobacco in it.

As for vaporizing shisha, I've never heard of that. Usually vaporizers are used for marijuana. Hookah is usually heated by burning charcoal in a bowl that THEN heats the shisha. When using a vaporizer for marijuana, the weed is cooked at a certain temperature where the THC and cannabinoids are released before combustions, preventing harmful smoke toxins. I've never heard of it being used for shisha, but that's not to say it's not possible.

In my opinion, I wouldnt suggest using Hookah if you are worried about health risks, because there are obvious health risks with this. You ARE inhaling smoke and dangerous toxins into your body. Bottom line is, most of this is hazardous to your health, and you really don't know what you're putting into your body. So be careful and make decisions based on what YOU and only you want.
