How to Use a Hookah

How to Use a Hookah

A hookah, first used in the ancient Middle East, is a smoking device that has become popular for use among people that love shisha products. Traditionally, a hookah was used either during or after dinner as a way of entertaining guests. Today, it is widely used for personal relaxation as well as to entertain guests at a party.

But how is the hookah set up? It is not a very hard task if you can follow the guideline we have created below.

How Does Hookah Work?

For the hookah set up to work, you will have a hookah vase that is filled with water. You must also have a hookah burner (bowl) that is filled with fruit-flavored hookah tobacco. The hookah burner is then covered with a tin/foil lid and placed on hot coals. The heat warms up the tobacco which produces smoke. Using a hose, the smoke is directed into the water and then rises up through a port to give the user a flavored smoke that makes the experience awesome.

How to Use a Hookah

Disconnect the hookah and clean the pieces

You will need to disconnect all parts of the hookah and wash the hookah burner, and the vase where the water is filled. Note that you should not use water on the hose. Rather, use a brush and brush off any impurities. Before you reconnect the hookah, ensure that all pieces are dry.

Pour About 1-Inch of Cold Water in to the Stem of the Hookah

To ensure that the there is enough space to ease the smoking process, you must pour about an inch of water into the metal stem. Note that you may be using a smaller hookah that may only let you pour just a ½ inch into the stem. Experts will tell you that by pouring more water into the stem you will not be making your smoking experience safer as water does not filter smoke. Cold water improves the pleasant taste of the smoke. If you can add some ice into the water, you will have an even better flavor.

Insert the Metal Stem about an Inch into the Water

Before you insert the metal stem into the water, ensure that the rubber at the top of the stem is airtight. The stem must be inserted to a depth of about an inch into the water.

Never Let the Hoses Touch Water

Larger hookahs have a host of hoses to connect on either side of the shaft/stem. Ensure that the hoses fit tightly around their respective slots. Whether you are smoking alone or with a group of friends, ensure that your hoses are all inserted into their slots.

Test the Airtightness

All you need to do here is put your hand on the hookah’s top air opening and then try to inhale some air through the hose. If air comes out, then one of your hoses needs some tightening around the slot. Identify which and tighten and then repeat the process until all the slots are airtight. Sometimes, you will need to buy another seal if the ones you have are not working.

Debris Collection Tray

Obviously there will be some debris and ash that will be falling off. Put a metal tray at the top of the hookah shaft to collect the said ashes.

Follow the steps below to smoke Shisha without getting choked by the smoke or putting your larynx into problem.

Keep Stirring the Shisha

You need to understand that shisha is just liquefied tobacco. The tobacco will have added flavors so that it can have a great aftertaste as well as produce clouds of smoke. Since the liquid tends to settle at the bottom of the solution, you need to keep stirring to get the best results.

If you are new to using shisha, perhaps you should do your practice using molasses instead of tobacco which can be very harsh if your hookah is not properly set up.

Since shisha comes in a variety of flavors, you are encouraged to sample several before you settle on the one that gives you the best experience.

How to Use a Hookah

Ensure that Your Shisha is Broken Down

When pouring your shisha to the hooker burner (bowl), you need to make sure that it is lose. Put the shisha until the bowl is almost full (leave about 2mm) to prevent the tobacco from burning. Breaking down the tobacco ensures that air can flow though it easily, and this ensures that the quality of smoke you inhale is the best grade.

The Lid over the Hookah Burner (Bowl)

Some people prefer using charcoal screen that is purposely sold for covering your shisha. However, a heavy duty foil is preferred. Ensure that the edges are crimped over the bowl. For those who only have light duty foil, use double layered ones.

Put the Bowl atop the Hookah Stem

The bowl must fit on top of this shaft, and must be tightly secured with rubber to ensure that no air escapes from the stem.

Drill Small Holes into the Foil

You can poke anywhere between 12 and 15 holes using a toothpick. You can then test the air flow by drawing on the hose. If you get problems drawing the air, then you can more holes.

Coals for Hookah

You can either use the quick light coals or the natural coals. Beware thought that there are some people who get headaches from smoking shisha that has been created with the quick light coals.

If you are using natural coal, ensure that the cola is flaming orange. The ash should never fall in the gas line on onto the glass stove. Heat the shisha between 8 and 12 minutes.

Enhance Flavor with Coals on the Foil

To enhance the flavor of the smoke, place the coals on top of the foil for between 3 and 5 minutes to warm up the shisha. A common mistake by shisha smokers is to pile coals at the center of the bowl. This has the effect of charring the shisha and thus diluting the sweet flavor of the shisha.

Inhale Slowly

A common mistake with rookie shisha smokers is to pull a lot of smoke through the hose. This has the effect of lighting up the coals which then char the shisha creating a lungful of distasteful smoke. Rather, you should pull short breaths and maintain the relaxed rate so that you can give shisha some time to cool down. Sometimes smoke will fail to show up in the vase. In such a situation, you can do short bust of inhales so as to light up the tobacco.

If you follow the above steps, then setting up a hookah should be easy peasy for you and your party will rock!…

I vary between different flavors since my local smoke shop carries a wide variety, even though I haven’t purchased through this site I would like to add my 2 cents to new/veteran hookah smokers everywhere. First I would like you to understand why I picked 4/5 on this flavor, like many of Starbuzz flavors this is probably one of the best, I find it a mix of like a lemonade with something and it tastes/smells like something very familiar (in a good way), the only problem is like a good majority of brands, I like my shisha strongly coated with molasses (the flavoring that covers the tobacco.) and yet pretty much most tins of Starbuzz I purchase are pretty dry. The Pomberry has been the moistest one of the ones I have purchased. I would also like to add if you are a bit on a budget I can’t stress enough how good Al Fahker brand is as well as for the price how moist their products are. Happy hookah-ing :)” ~ Steven

3 Best Non Tobacco Hookahs

Smoking is a habit, once caught it is really hard to get rid of. Smoking is detrimental to the body and so there are alternatives that one can take us as an alternative. Hookah is one of the alternatives to smoking. It isn’t exactly harmless but it is considered lesser of the two evils.

Hookah has become popular with the youth, teens and young adults have been flocking to hookah bars for years now. There are different type of hookah’s you find and non-tobacco hookahs are picking up steam. We have reviewed the 3 best non tobacco hookahs for you so you know exactly what to try when you go to your favorite hookah bar.

Hydro Herbal Shisha

Hydro Herbal Shisha

Rating: 4.5 out of 5                    Cost:$

Hydro Herbal Shisha has been leading the industry when it comes to tobacco and nicotine-free hookah smoke. Instead of tobacco they use an herbal alternative. Their recipe is a secret, however many believe that bagasse, sugar cane fibre, is used as a base for the shisha.

For our review, we tested two flavors Hydro offers, pineapple and raspberry. The cut of both the shisha was similar, it looked like fine grass in molasses. Both smelled exactly like their respective fruits, however the pineapple scent was slightly stronger. When we tested it out, we got a lot of flavor from both. Hydro Herbal Shisha really packs on the flavor, leaves you with the feeling of almost as if you just had the fruit. The best part about it, the hookah is buzz free. All in all, the hookah is great you get all the pleasure of smoking without the tobacco plus the richness of flavor is an added bonus. Hydro Herbal Shisha has countless fruit and other flavors, so you will surely figure out a few or more to your liking.

Pros

Wide-variety of flavors

Strong smell and flavor

Tobacco free

Cons

Produces a lot of smoke

SoeX Herbal Molasses

SoeX Herbal Molasses

Rating: 4.3 out of 5                    Cost:$

Made from sugar cane extracts and herbs, the SoeX Herbal Molasses is definitely a hookah you should try. Since many cities are now banning tobacco hookahs, non tobacco hookahs are becoming ever more popular. SoeX has made sure that the flavor and feeling remain the same as tobacco hookah without actually containing any tobacco or nicotine.

SeoX Herbal Molasses is fine grass cut in molasses, like Hydro. We tried the chocomint flavored hookah and must admit it had a kick to it. The smoke was full of flavor and fragrance, but we felt it burned out a little quicker than we were expecting. It also left sort of a bland aftertaste in our mouth and the room smelled of mint afterwards, which wasn’t too bad. Overall, SoeX Herbal Molasses was filled with flavor, however the aftertaste it left wasn’t really that appealing. If you aren’t careful with the charcoal, it can burn a lot quicker than you expect, so monitor that closely as you enjoy the wide-variety of flavors of SoeX Herbal Molasses.

Pros

Flavorful

Smells good and leaves a nice scent

Cons

Leaves a bland aftertaste

Heaven Leaf Teabacco Shisha

Heaven Leaf Teabacco Shisha

Rating: 4.1 out of 5                    Cost:$

Heaven Leaf Teabacco Shisha brings two addictions in to one, drinking tea and smoking, well sort of. Made with a base of tea leaf, Heaven Leaf Teabacco Shisha is 100% tobacco and nicotine-free. It uses natural black tea leaves and infuses it with flavor and glycerine so it is full of flavor. The tea leaf also adds a subtle hint of tea to the flavor which is good if you like tea.

Heaven Leaf Teabacco Shisha has over 41 flavors ranging from aromatic, fruity, to sweet. We tried their cotton candy flavor and it truly felt like we were eating cotton candy. It also had a fragrance of vanilla, blueberry, and raspberry which blended well leaving us wanting more. It produced a lot of smoke, that can be contributed to the use of vegetable glycerine in the hookah. Overall, the hookah was good. Just the texture of the product wasn’t as appealing as the Hydro or Soex.

Pros

Full of flavor

Hint of tea, if you like tea

Wide-range of flavors

Cons

Hint of tea, if you don’t like tea

Texture of the mixture wasn’t as fine as we would have liked

So with that we end our list. Hookahs are a fun alternative to smoking and you can easily find the brands we reviewed in a local hookah bar near you. When smoking hookah please be aware there are a few risks, even with non-tobacco hookahs. It may be less harmful than smoking but studies have shown that it can still be a cause of cancer and other lung problems. So please smoke with caution.…

Cherry Bomber Box Mod

Cherry Bomber Box Mod Review

The Cherry Bomber Box Mod is a fully mechanical mod that promises clouds to all who partake in vaping. It has an engraving that reads, “You want clouds? We got clouds!” That’s what we all want from our vapes, right!?

This excellent mod also has a deep impression of beautiful (beauty is in the eye of the beholder, some might not like it) bomber art, including a sexy version of Jessica Rabbit posing in front of a star logo. On the side, another etching says, “Vape Made Only in the Philippines. Masterpiece. Custom Vapes.” These engravings are perfectly executed and give the mod a touch of class unlike any other.

Perhaps the best engraving is one that boldly states, “F#*% All Cloners.” (Excuse the language.) It’s ironic that the clone itself has this message on it as well. There are a few other engraved details in this mod that also make its appearance appealing to the eye, especially the “0077” code that gives it a more official look.

This vape mod requires two dual 18 650 batteries that you must tighten with a screwdriver. It can be a hassle for some to constantly do this, but there are tiny screwdrivers that you can carry with you anywhere. If you’re really committed to vaping, this won’t present that big of a problem. The back slides off easily, and although the magnet is a bit weak, it has a couple of ridges that prevent it from falling.

Some benefits of this hard-hitting mod include:

  • Great flavor
  • All copper contacts
  • No wires
  • Fits well in your hand
  • All mechanical
  • Beautiful artwork
  • Locks with button rotation
  • Fine tune connection

This quality mod has a great value for its cost, especially when purchasing the clone instead of the authentic. This vape mod is one of the best out on the market today, and you don’t even have to buy the authentic one.

DOWNSIDE

Both the clone and the authentic function similarly and will create thick clouds for all vaporizer lovers. There is only one downside to this mechanical mod, and both versions have it, but there is a simple solution.

Since the body is part of the mod’s circuitry, you can prompt an auto-fire if your atomizer touches the body itself. Therefore, it’s imperative you use a cartomizer, tank or atomizer that’s 22mm or less. What happens when the atty touches the body is that it completes the circuit just as pressing the button would.

Again, if at any point your atomizer makes contact with the body, your vape will set itself off without you ever pushing the button. Not only can this harm your vaporizer, it’s also possible that you get hurt.

Now, besides this one issue, the Cherry Bomber is a must have if you love to make huge clouds when vaping. The clone serves the same purpose as the authentic version, but you’ll save over $200 USD when purchasing the clone.

Other cons of this mod include:

  • You need screwdriver to change batteries
  • 510 connection unscrews easily when atomizer is tightened
  • Heavy
  • Weak spring in button
  • Not for beginners

If you are not an experienced vaporizer aficionado, this mod may not be suitable for you. Sure, it’s great to blow thick clouds, but the maintenance it requires will prove to be a daunting task.

Not only that, you can end up spending more money if it ever malfunctions with an atty measuring over 22mm. At this point, your investment in a mod will go down the drain.

This mod is not one you can just drop in your bag and go. The spring is also pretty thin and causes overheating issues that only an experienced vaporizer enthusiast can fix.

Overall, the mod is excellent if you know what you’re doing. You will not leave fingerprints on the solid aluminum that has a pleasant brushed finish.

If you’re new at this activity and do not mind tinkering with the few downsides, then feel free to pick this mod up. It will be a great way to learn about mods and how to fix any mishaps.

If you just want to vape comfortably, though, look for alternatives that will be easier to upkeep. Having problems with your mod will discourage you from getting more in the future, so it would be wise to choose a simpler mod.

For all you experienced vaporizer lovers, this mod is for you! You will love its design, durability, and the thick clouds it produces. The flavor is also second to none, and the price is unbeatable.

Remember that the parts are replaceable so you can make this mod even better with stronger magnets and better springs. But that is not necessary, it will vape perfectly straight out of the box.

Happy vaping!…

10 Best E-Juice Flavors

Are you new to the fascinating world of vaping? Are you an adolescent in this mind-boggling universe? Are you an established vaping enthusiast? It doesn’t matter if you are a novice or a seasoned player in this awe-inspiring game, you will always be on the lookout for the best e juice flavors in the trade. That is where this article comes into the picture. We offer a countdown on the finest flavors available in the market now.

1. Boosted (Boosted E Juice): The Boosted e juice brand is inarguably the most preferred one by a clear majority of the vapers all around the world. The vendor’s story to fame is as interesting as the taste of the e juice itself. An experienced vaper for several years past, Cory Vigil from Denver, Colorado, carefully assessed the needs of the general vaping public and concocted a range of e juice flavors that took the market by storm. The brand has a particular flavor which is heavily favored by most of its dedicated users, which goes by its namesake, Boosted.

In the year 2014, this unique flavor with a subtle hint of strawberry ruled the charts by quite a margin, and it continues to do so three years later. This flavor combines the taste of a vintage strawberry milkshake with that of the cream, and this concoction makes for the perfect e juice which you can blissfully puff at for hours on end. It comes with a PG/VG ratio of 40/60, thus providing an exceptional throat hit along with thickly clouded vapors. You can find five different nicotine levels of the product – 0, 3, 6, 12, and 18 mg – perfectly lined up for those looking to reduce their intake by substantial degrees. It is currently priced at $19.99 for a 30-ml bottle.

2. Smurf Cake (Vape Wild E Juice): Vape Wild is one of the few e liquids that come with variable VG content. You can choose from a wide range of PG/VG ratios from 20% VG to more than 80% VG. Among the many flavors offered by the brand, the one that stands out is the Smurf Cake. It is a blend of blueberry and cheesecake, two of the most appetizing delicacies today.

The vendor essentially believes in producing the best e juice flavors at staggeringly affordable prices. Would you believe me if I stated that this enticingly rare blend costs just a measly $6.99 for a 30-ml bottle? You will have no choice but to believe it because it is the irrefutable truth. We would also suggest that you try out its Sweet Complexity flavor, a fine blend of cinnamon, banana, vanilla, sugar, and wait for it, the good ol’ rum!).

3. Oh-Face (Beantown Vapor): True to its name, every Beantown e juice gives out a smell of rich beans combined with many other authentic flavors. If you haven’t tried out the Oh-Face already, give it a go; we assure you that you are bound to enjoy it. It consists of a fine concoction of cream and strawberries. The taste of strawberry is pretty strong on the buds, but it doesn’t exactly overwhelm you. The after-taste will definitely stay on the tips of your tongue for a long time to come.

The nicotine levels that this product comes range from 0-mg to 18-mg. The PG/VG ratio is a constant 33/67 and it will cost you around $17.99 for a 30-ml bottle, but the taste will certainly be more than worth the price.

Additionally, we would recommend Beantown’s Soul Custardy which combines the sumptuous flavors of vanilla custard, bourbon, butterscotch, brown sugar, and graham cracker. This one is complexity at its best.

4. Unicorn Milk (Cuttwood): The one vendor from the glamorous city of Los Angeles that shines out is the Cuttwood Sauce Boss. Quality is what this e juice producer favors above all else. And regardless of the quantity of the resources spent in brewing the liquid, he will always sell it at a reasonable price, though most might find it quite hefty.

Unicorn Milk has established its own territory in the niche, always reeling in potential fans after every use. You will get to experience the faint taste of cream along with a steady flow of strawberry. This one, again, is available in 0, 3, 6, 12, and 18-mg nicotine strengths, thus providing a variety for aspiring vapers to reduce or increase their nicotine intake according to their requirements.

The PG/VG ratio has not been disclosed by the manufacturers, but given the degree of throat hit and the amount of vapor produced, we would hark a guess at a moderate ratio preferred by a majority of the general vaping public. The product is reasonably priced at $11.99 per 15 ml bottle, far above the average rate. However, the unique blend will simply blow your mind, making you crave for more of this remarkable e juice flavor.

5. Mother’s Milk (Suicide Bunny): This brand is widely considered to be the e juice favored by the elite. The price does the product complete justice. Costing over $22 for a 30-ml vial it packs the punch of even the strongest of e liquids combined. This sublime blend will induce even the heaviest of smokers to switch to the relatively healthier alternative.

The female vendor named Pip has an exciting story to tell regarding her inspiration for brewing this amazing product. Pip’s husband used to be a chain smoker. He had already tried out the various vaping flavors available in the market, but just couldn’t hold onto one. Knowing her husband’s tastes very well, Pip ventured to create an e juice that would eventually go on to satisfy her husband’s taste buds, including those of several vapers in the world.

We only ask that you go beyond the hype surrounding this e juice flavor and savor it at your leisure. You are bound to enjoy it for many lifetimes to come. Multiple nicotine strengths can be found for the e liquid, specifically 0, 1.5, 3, 6, 12, and 18 mg. Please note that this is only brand that offers 1.5-mg of nicotine content in its repertoire.

6. Deviant (Sicboy): You would be hard put to find a vaping club that doesn’t contain at least one Sicboy vaper in its midst. This brand is hugely famous, and not without reason. It was established only a couple of years ago, but has enjoyed a formidable position in hall of fame for quite some time now.

Deviant, its most popular flavor, has a cherry delight tipped into its vanilla ice-cream seasonings. The exquisitely light cherry flavor in the liquid will leave an exotic aftertaste on your tongue. This flavor is the perfect combination of creaminess and fruitiness in any e juice flavor. The price might be on the higher side, costing $19.99 for a 30-ml …
