    $9.99 for all you can smoke tobacco flavored Shisha with a round of sandwiches? Yeah you most likely were not getting the best. That is a huge deal, since most bars charge $15-20 for a bowl and two people and $3 for each additional person. Those prices are insanely high because if you did it yourself $20 will buy you some of the most expensive Shisha you can get your hands on and would be enough to last you 20-30 bowls.

    As much as I would hate to say it (with this flavor being way over hyped), but considering you like the menthol feeling, you might be a fan of the "blue mist" varieties, starbuzz or more expensive knockoffs.

    Post it man, this is a hookah/post your hookah thread! :kickass:

    same here, something hits you are reminds you that its illegal. After doing it a handful of times it gets hard to believe something like weed is illegal, its just plain stupid

    Don't forget that Ganks is in a slightly cheaper place to live than Sacramento - around here $10 is a common price for good shisha, and he may be somewhere even cheaper.

    true, I am just making the assumption since California smoke shop prices match US internet prices and are in the relative ballpark as EU internet prices. Still even with the sway of prices, when you go to a hookah bar you are getting ripped off so bad its ridiculous, but its good to try a bar if you have never done it before, if you make a habit out of it its definitely better to get a hookah yourself, as it will save you a lot of money. There are many bars that charge big prices for cheap Shisha and from what I hear around my area, there is a war between the bars and hookah fans claiming that some are not being truthful to what Shisha brands they are using.

    The test are extremely bias to say the least. with claims such as "a single session of hookah has 70 time more tar...", do a napkin test. A cigarette will turn a very dark brown from a mild drag and a full lung hit of hookah will make the napkin wet, but still white as white can be. The only huge question is what toxins and heavy metals if any are in the coals.

    a quick lookup on wikipedia (and further cited sources):

    and the "volatile chemicals" are the result from chemically treated coals, all natural coals have a higher carbon percentage with little to no toxic chemicals.

    I never tried it.

    Mainly because it's generally just used by 13 year old Jewish girls.
    Round these parts anyway.

    browse some shisha forums, AF and other good brands
    are offered constantly, fuckin' expensive though.

    i also know a local shop here, that offers AF sometimes but
    there is not a big choice and the tobacco is not always available.

    having hard times atm, haven't smoked a good shisha for weeks:erk:

    cheers

    I was at the corner store, picking up some chips and cigarettes, when I noticed that one guy purchasing al fakher tobacco on mobile website. I have been smoking for a few years now, but never tried it before because of its high price. That guy told me that it is really good so I decided to order one for myself from https://coalsnbowls.com/collections/hookah-tobacco/al-fakher/
