Default Re: Myth or fact about rinsing shisha before smoking it

She takes a small amount of shisha in the palm of her hand and wets the opposite hands. She then transfers the shisha into the newly wet hand and squeezes her hand until molasses comes out and rinses her free hand. She does this transfer about 5 times and then easily sprinkles it into her bowl. I asked her about it and she said the indian guy at the hookah store told her to pack it that way to reduce headaches. Headaches were caused by the molasses.

What do you people think? Is this true? Do some people rinse the shisha before using it?

no the indian guy was full of it. the tobacco is washed, or not, before it is made into shisha but once its made all thats gonna do is wash out the flavor. the girl with the hookah was prob some *edited* seeing as she kept the dirty old water. i woulda stayed the hell away from that hookah.
