Default Re: the difference of shisha

Some, however, will insist that there's a clear nominal distinction between modern, glycerin-based shisha and molasses-based shisha. That's why we have the terms shisha and moassel, which to some people don't mean the same thing.

Normal people don't care and just call it shisha, no matter what it's made of.

As for uh, the herbal shisha. There's some good stuff out there, flavor-wise. The prime example is Saalaam herbal shisha. The flavors are amazing but it's just not the same as smoking tobacco. At the end of a herbal session, I often feel unfulfilled (probably from the lack of nicotine) and start up a new bowl with actual tobacco. It's a cool novelty product, but most people won't smoke it on a regular basis.
