Default glycerin=more smoke?

Quick question! I saw on someones review that if you want more smoke you can add a bit of glycerin to your shisha? True? false? any comments? how is that health wise? and do you lose flavor??

This is true. I guess smoking isnt healthy in general, but it does not make it any more worse. The flavor gets a "sweeter" taste to it. Its a great way to revive dryer shishas. When you smoke hookah, the glycerin is almost vaporised and the tobacco is there just for flavor and a buzz. That is why they can make herbal shishas that still taste similar to other washed shishas......at least salaam does...

please correct me if im wrong, most of this info i picked up from here on the forums......who knows what they are smokin

adding glycerin = more smoke = crap taste. If your just trying to get huge clouds just buy some Epic/Zona brand and you'll be all set.

Make sure to get vegetable glycerin. animal glycerin can make you sick and ruin anything it touches regarding consumption.

Some drug stores have it. if not there, check a health food store.

Make sure it states on the label that it is safe for human consumption.

the local drug store (rite aid) and kroger both didnt have it, the only glycerine they had was suppositories and topical glycerine (topical i tried and it seemed fine but its not "food safe" grade). i went to whole foods and got some there. its used for sweetening food, dont ask for glycerine that does anything else, if it is not being sold as a sweetener it probably is not food safe

you only need a few drops but thats only if it is really really dry, i only use it on nakhla kass super and salloum plain because they have dried out a lot.

it depends how much is on it, if the tobacco has enough juice on it and you just want to get retarded clouds ya its going to taste bad, if it has dried out putting a little on it will bring it back. personally i think glycerine only needs to be used to fix dried out tobacco not just to get clouds
