no offense to who's hookah it was but they clearly set it up wrong. coming from someone who started off casual with the college scene and upgraded to their own hookah, they put the coal too close to the shisha which caused it to burn up and should never happen. they probably packed the bowl too much which caused it to burn which hurts like !! and can leave you with one of the worst headaches and mornings known ever. unless you have something against smoke, i recommend you try it again with a place that knows how to do it right, just to get a sense of actual hookah. i bum cigs pretty regularly too so i'm not biased, at least try hookah out right.

what i said just now to the other guy, you had it packed improperly... don't let one bad experience turn you off. even if you don't like it, get an accurate experience. and, like i said before, you're not burning it. heating to vapor is a bit different.

the smoke passes through water, getting rid of some of the tar and carcinogens
true, and even adding to that, most shishas these days are made with 0% tar (used right), as said on the box.

• Marijuana contains THC. THC is a bronchial dilator, which means it works like a cough drop and opens up your lungs, which aids clearance of smoke and dirt. Nicotine does just the opposite; it makes your lungs bunch up and makes it harder to cough anything up.
yep, pretty much every study agrees that THC expands your lungs and lowers the chance of tar affecting it but a whole-!!ing-lot. but i will mention for this thread that nicotine also exists in shisha since it is still tobacco, but in much lower concentrations due to the added moisture and flavor.

at least check out other research first, there are tons that don't agree with this.

couldn't agree more, i'm just a mediocre chemical engineer just outta school but i spent a lot of time studying this for a project and its clear from the beginning that's its two different processes. smoke is not just smoke, its not that clear, even if its all not particularly good for you.

just as a note, smoking bud doesn't have to be smoke, vaping is much cleaner for your lungs and won't build up tar/carcinogens. blunts definitely are bad for you though, but i suppose everyone picks their poison.
