Default Nicotine Free/Less

Ok, so ive been smoking hookah for some time. I just never had my own till a few days ago. I was wonder why my head hurt from smoking it the other day. the shisha im using is Al Waha - Apple. Someone told me that it could be the nicotine. I wanted to know has anyone had this problem? and could they recommend something I might like better. Like a nicotine free one such as Soex Herbal Shisha. or something lighter in the nicotine. Thanks

i doubt the headaches are coming from the al waha unless you are smoking a flavor that doesn't taste good to you. If you're using quick light coals you may be getting a headache from the gunpower used in them. If you're getting a headache using natural light coals you may need to keep them on your stove or hot plate longer so they cook all the way. Hope it gets better for you.

Which coals would you recommend? It could be those, never thought about that.

Since you're new to hookah perhaps you're not taking enough breaks between hits.. I used to get horrible headaches when I smoked without pacing myself-even with natural coals.

And I only use ******* Hookah coals-they're great, imo.

Hydration usually helps me. I've smoked a lot of herbal shisha and have still gotten a headache if I'm not well hydrated. Also try changing your hose. I noticed that with a looser drag, I don't get a headache. Hope this helps.

Smoke slower, take in some fresh air, take it cool, hookah's not a race to the finish line. Avoid quick lights they are horrible and will give headaches to many people.

I suggest using natural coals such as exoticas, coconaras or ******* hookah. Your body will thank you later.

Al Waha is a washed product with very little nicotine but frankly I and millions of other smoke high nicotine, unwashed products all the time with no problem so I doubt that is the issue. Instead, you mostly likely smoke to aggressively and got too much CO exposure.

If you want to get the most out of smoking read this and act accordingly:

oh so smoking like my hoookah is an oxygen rich breathing apparatus is incorrect haha!
well i dont think i smoked to fast, maybe i hold in to long or something, or pull to hard. my lungs are beasts so i might be pulling in to much CO. Im going to slow down and see if that helps, and still get natural coals and some different shisha and see what works best for me. Thanks for the advise everyone. should have join this place a while back!

i smoke the quick light yesterday and let it sit 5 to 10 mins before i even sit it on top of the bowl. then i just puffed away without inhaling. im going to finish them off and then get the natural ones. i think that would be best for me. gun powder doesnt sound fun to smoke
