A Quick Lesson on Tobacco-Free Shisha
With the immense growth of the shisha market comes a bigger variety of products. Many hookah smokers are now turning to herbal shisha for something new or based on personal preference. There are now several brands producing tobacco-free shisha, from the popular Hydro Herbal to the newer herbal lines from Al Fakher and Fantasia.
Herbal molasses provides all of the flavor and massive clouds of shisha tobacco, but without the nicotine, which makes it an excellent choice for people who want to enjoy a long, flavorful session with their hookah but don't want the buzz of regular shisha. Commonly used ingredients for herbal shisha include sugar cane fiber and tea leaves, which are mixed with the usual honey, molasses, and flavoring. If you want to smoke herbal shisha but still have the buzz, try mixing it with a little bit of regular shisha tobacco.
Here's a quick overview of the most popular herbal shisha brands:
|Al Fakher Herbal – Known the world over for their very popular, high quality shisha tobacco, Al Fakher also produces an herbal alternative to some of its most popular flavors, such as Fresh Mint and Double Apple. AF Herbal Shisha is very juicy and has a lot of flavor.|
|Hydro Herbal – Hydro is probably the most popular brand of herbal shisha, and has been around for several years. Hydro is made using sugar cane fiber, and comes in a wide variety of flavors, including Dr. 23 (which tastes like a popular soda drink), Kali Drizzle (blueberries and mint), Tropical Storm (mango), and Hydro Peach.|
|Fantasia Herbal – Already a well-known shisha brand, Fantasia recently launched a line of tobacco free shisha. Now all of those classic Fantasia flavors like Cuban Mojito, Adios Mofo, and Dragon's Breath are available in a nicotine-free, tobacco-free alternative.|
Herbal shisha is perfect for people who want to smoke hookah, but don't want the tobacco or nicotine; as well as seasoned hookah smokers who want to try something new and different.
