Default Do I need to throw out ~ 2kg of shisha?

So I just got back from vacation (2 weeks) and found out my window AC (to the room with all my hookah stuff) fell out while I was gone, according to my neighbors the morning after I left. The room has been sitting at 80-110º. Is the shisha still good?

I didn't really think twice about it, just loaded the last of my Fumari lemon and it was harsh and tasteless... Was that just 'cause it was the last of the bag & sat for 2 weeks or did my shisha go bad?

I feel like your own trial and error will tell you better than anyone here can.

With that said, the first thing to come to my mind is to keep in mind where hookah smoking originated. Not a lot of AC in the Middle East throughout history. I know the tobacco has changed quite a bit over time, but it still stands to reason. That and the fact that I'm sure there are plenty of modern hookah smokers around the world who can't keep their stash in hermetically sealed and perfectly humidified chambers.

The only advice I've got is to do some test runs. Try a bit of all of it and see how she goes.

Was hoping this wasn't the case, though the origin point I didn't think about and it puts my mind at-ease a bit. I have a bunch of 100g packs so there's going to be a lot of trial and hopefully not much error lol.

Unless it was sitting open for the whole time, you won't have any problems.

i think you should be fine. occasionally my tobacco will be in the trunk of my car in 90 degree or higher days, never had an issue. ive even packed it while its hot and everything. put your stash in a different room, let it get back to a reasonable temp. you shouldnt have an issue

I've had 11.5kg of shisha - sealed - in my garage for the last 6 mos. We've been in the upper 90s & up to 110 for the last 6 weeks, and it smoked just fine last night.

I kinda lost a bag of tangiers cocoa in the trunk of my jeep for a few months in the summer, found it, smoked it, it was perfectly fine. The DM that was it's friend, well, she did not fare so well.
