Question Reaction to glycerin?

Has anyone ever heard of someone having a wierd reaction to the glycerin found in many shisha tobaccos?

The reason I ask is this...

I posted a topic not too long ago about my heart racing and getting a headache, etc. I agreed with what most people said that it was probably from the nicotine in the tobacco. BUT I found that I have a simular reaction to herbal mixes as well (such as Hydro and HH Evolution) AND I don't have the same problem with Nakhla, in fact I rather enjoy the buzz from Nakhla. The only thing I can come up with is the glycerin added to the shisha.

I really enjoy smoking hookah.

I could be way off and if I'm just being wierd feel free to tell me.

Some people DO have an adverse reaction to PG or propylene glycol that can include headaches, and in some people, a racing heartbeat. I learned a bit about this on an e-cig forum I belonged to when I began mixing my own e-liquid. VG or vegetable glycerin is derived from plant materials (many different types) and it's pretty rare to have a reaction to VG. Not sure what type of glycerin they use in the different shisha brands, you might be best sticking to Nak and other non-glycerin added types, or alternatively, you might be able to find a different brand of shisha. You can read a bit more about people's reactions to different glycerin types here.

Hookah Hookah lists vegetable glycerin in their ingredients. I've noticed I don't have a problem with them. Hmmmm...

Thanks.

I don't have a problem with making my own shisha.

It's just one more thing...not bad enough being a ginger, now this.

i used to smoke ecigs aswell, and id venture a guess that its the PG that may be added to some shisha blends.

Nakhla does add glycerine to their tobacco. But since you didnt get the side effects, that means its time to stock up on some good old Nak

Nak is the best anyway so get it going.

BE AWARE that once you go to NAK any other thing you smoke will not have any buzz effect for you.

it could also be a reaction to the coals you are using, if you are smoking alot or in a poorly ventilated room you can have the same symptoms

I use coco naras. The ventilation could be it...I do smoke in a huge room but my house is old. Now that the weather is warming up I'll pop open all my windows...get some good cross ventilation going.

I am going to try more Nakhla. The buzz is enjoyable but not a must. I like a lot of flavor. When I order my KM next month I'm getting a bunch of Nak.

Thanks guys.
