Re: Is there any way to identify a legit brand?
Buy it from a Reputable Vendor. That ensures quality, most of the time.
But honestly, all you have to do is smell it. If it smells like shit, throw it out. If it smells good, smoke it. If it's a fake brand that smokes as well as the real brand, why not smoke it...? It doesn't matter.
On the internet, it's easy. If it doesn't look like Normal Starbuzz, or Normal AF, or Normal (Whatever), then don't buy it. All the Normal looks can be seen on HookahCompany.com or Hookah-Shisha.com.
