Not true ... it is as BIGPOPPA said, a stimulant ..... It suppresses appetite though.

Exactly ..... Same effect as caffeine with respect to both blood pressure and heart rate

TE, I have a feeling you may have to go to ...... dare I say it...... Herbal.

:ducks from flying objects:
HOW DARE YOU?

Btw, went to my tobacconist today, bought the Nakhla DA can (250g) for $3.5. Too expensive for Nakhla ($0.60 for 250g carton, $1.6 for glass jar) but it has the best flavor, aroma and wetness.

and, he had the hookah hose tip filters .... YAY .... Less than $1 for a filter and FIVE activated charcoal cartridges each of which works for 15 sessions ...... Bought four filters .... $3.6 !
