Re: Soex replacement
To the best of my knowledge Soex, Black Label and High Life (which you can only buy in Europa) is the full extent of what is available in terms of non-tobacco shisha. They all use spent & crushed sugar cane as a base and they are not "herbal" because sugar cane is not an herb.
You should read the ton of stuff I’ve posted about the poor quality of tobacco research and the fact that the health risks are wildly over-stated. If you consider such things and the fact that moassel works by vaporizing the liquid constituents within the mix with minimal combustion of the tobacco you’ll understand that very little of the “bad stuff” in tobacco is actually inhaled. Also, the real health threat from narhgile use comes from burning the coals which is something you have to do when you smoke “herbal” shisha.
