It depends. Some hoses are not washable. They have metal coils in them that rust, both from condensation or washing. If you're not sure your hose is washable, it probably isn't.

Unless explicitly stated. Generally, the hoses that are wrapped with a fabric are not rubber. Hoses that look like, well, a rubber hose are obviously rubber.

Just started smoking the hookah and am enjoying it. Very different from cigars and pipes. BUT, I still will not inhale- altho it is a great way to practice snorking! So, how are the other hookah smokers enjoying theirs? Still using? How often?

Hookah has more nicotine than a cigar in my experience. After an hour of a Hookah, when I stand it's like "oh man".

This. Might have something to do with the fact that I usually drink with hookah.... But even after a couple of drags, I can feel the lightheadedness come on. Even two or three cigars in a row doesn't do that to me anymore.

Not according to the labels! Although I guess it also depends on the sheesha, but the two I've tried show less than 1% nicotine content.

the amount that you intake can be more but I think that has more to do with how often you deeply inhale. If you smoked a cigar like you do hookah, I'm sure you'd be on your ass after the first few puffs. I've found the best way to counteract the lightheadedness is to drink plenty of fluids during a session.

Default Re: Hookah

It's my understanding that hookah is more of a vaporization than combustion (the heat source never directly touches the tobacco, hence the foil or metal screen and air buffer between the charcoal and shisha). once the shisha starts to actually burn, it's time to empty the bowl. therefore, it's dificult to compare the two, as obviously cigars require combustion. it would be more appropriate to compare it to an e-cig, which again is difficult, but at least then you're comparing granny smiths to macintosh's. just this one fool's thoughts

Yes, you "bake" the hooka tobacco.

Hookah is a less expensive alternate than handing out 4-5 cigars to friends after dinner.
