Re: Herbal Shisha
I've yet to see herbal shisha done right, but I think there is potential for something good, especially for those who smoke for buzz among other things. Herbs like Blue Lotus and Yerba Lena Yesca give a really nice buzz, much different and less deadening than nicotine can be.
I once tried making shisha with damiana, but it just had way too much herbal flavor. Tasted like a gerbils cage after about 10 minutes. I didn't really continue messing with it, but I think the plant needs to be treated somehow to remove this flavor.
