Well the obvious positive is that there is no nicotine in tobacoless shisha. Other then that I don`t know enough about it to say any more.

i wouldnt let my kid smoke tobaccoless shisha either


but in all seriousness i guess the aurgument is that there is no tobacco smell and no nicotien…however there is no proff that the garbage they put in herbal shisha is any better or worse for you than just regular tobacco…if ur that die hard tho. check out shiaza(dont know if the spelling is right) steam stones. there soposed to be not as bad

Based on what, exactly?

This is the kind of lazy thinking that the people hawking such gimmicks rely on. There's no proof anywhere that smoking rocks soaked in gods-know-what is any more or less "bad" than anything else out there.

Quote for truth. I'm also pretty sure they are soaked in straight up glycerin and flavorings. Yum yum....

dont get me wrong, im not defending them or ever plan on buying them

just a couple members said that they wernt terrible and if you are stuck on no tobbacco that they were better than other herbals they had tried

and by not as bad i did not mean health i ment on flavor. and it was not as bad. not once did i say they were good

Yeah, if you aren't 18, I can't blame any father for not letting their kids smoke anything, regardless of tobacco free or not. (and you shouldn't be on this site due to its rules).

As for trying to convince your dad..... no smoke is 100% safe smoke. Even using Shiazo stones, you get plenty of by product from coals, unless you use electric coals. You are looking at more hassle than it's worth trying to convince your dad, at least in my opinion.

I personally say, respect your fathers wishes, if you want to smoke, do it else where (assuming your of age). Trust me, the support of your father is MUCH more important than smoking a hookah

Like others have said, herbal smokes aren't proven to be safe. I'll disagree with a couple people and say Shiazo stones would be your best bet, if you like the taste of those silly things. It's just glycerin and flavoring to my knowledge, which is in most American hookah tobacco.

Keep in mind that washed tobacco has an extremely low amount of nicotine too. That would be best imo, if you can convince your dad of it. Seriously the nicotine is very very minimal.

Honestly, tobacco free shisha is disgusting and not any better for you than tobacco shisha, probably worse.

If you love smoking, but want your parents to be okay with it, maybe a Halooka is your thing? I recently found them, and it's an electronic hookah that uses water vapor and vegetable glycerin instead of shisha. It's interesting, look it up maybe?

But anyways, good luck, it's hard convincing parents, but smoking is bad, so they just want what's best for you.

Good luck!

Pros to smoking tobacco free "shisha"?
there are none. period. the only pro is that you get to taste an artificial fruit flavor.

Not trying to sound like a snob here, I have had my fair share of Hydro Herbal, but it isn't good for you, in any way... at all. (as far as I know)

Honestly I will go out on a wild limb here, and say that Tobacco is probably less likely to effect you in a negative way, and you get enjoyment out of your hookah, true enjoyment


Wait til your eighteen (assuming that your not, considering the wording of your post and the fact that your trying to convince your dad to let you smoke "tobacco free shisha") and then, if your still interested in Hookah, get something worth smoking and try to enjoy yourself.

but in my honest opinion, there is no point in tobacco-less moassels. The taste of tobacco is one of the things that makes the hookah enjoyable. If I want pure flavor then I'll just eat it instead of smoking it

I've never had any luck with tobacco free shisha personally... Soex is decent as far as flavor goes but it lacks something as far as being a satisfying smoke.

Throw a temper tantrum, I hear thats how kids get things these days.

Of use logic like the smoke doesnt linger, Its tobacco free, ummm it smells good?
Yeah im running out of things to make an argument. If anything use logic and a world class hissy fit

Just try to make stuff up and then when you're talking mimic the British accent it will make you sound smart. Look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7E-aoXLZGY There are many accents in Britain but this one sounds smart.

I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say Hannie is underage, because there has been no response since the question of age was brought up....Prove me wrong.
