Default Hookah Headache

Hello Everybody, Whenever i smoke my hookah i get mad headahes. The tobacco im using is pretty standard, and the coals were $9 for 100 so im pretty sure they are pretty cheap as far as coals go. If anyone has any suggestions or advice please let me know

The problem is the coals. Bad coals yield bad results.

Also, this probably won't remove the headache issue because your coals suck, but make sure they are fully lit and ashed over before u place them on the bowl.

usually headaches mean your coals werent fully lit when you started taking hits. QL's are notorious for headaches lol. Just be sure to let it cook till it turns completely white, not a little grey here and a little black there. Completely white.

sometimes taking hits to fast with little rest between can cause it also, the CO from the coals inhibits your redblood cells from carrying oxygen. so take your time between hits.

like bradedup said make sure your coals are ashed smoke it like a fine cigar slow with breaths between draws pace your self. also eat and drink plenty of water with while smoking it will dehydrate you. Also one tidbit i have found with the headakes i was getting do you have a bloodpressure problem. May wanna check because i was getting killer headakes for some time and come to find out it was my bloodpressure. when you smoke anything i mean anything your BP will go up if its already high it will accelirate quickly in to a headake. My BP problem was due to a med i was on and stress now no worries and no problems. Just a though! Good luck it will pass im sure with quality coals and changing you hookah habits.

Well pretty much just echoing everyone here...
But make sure it's fully lit. Waiting just until the sparks are done is a common rookie mistake.

Also strong Nicotine highs might give you a headache...so make sure you have food and liquids in you..

edit: woops now my comment is even more pointless after 1lowtoy's response

This all makes sense because when i first started i was getting high quality coals from my freind, ever since i bought my own, the cheap ones, i have been getting mad headaches. I'll try to return them and get three kings

Ah, that's no good. Go to your shop and look for Epic, that's probably the best brand atm. Good luck with your hookah endeavors.

Epic will give you clouds, but they are clouds of fail. Nakhla has clouds of win.

Invest in some coconut coals, coconara and ******* hookah coals are best ones to get, they have around 4% ash, tastless, oudorless and eviromentally friendly. Plus they are just EPIC WINS!

Headache usually happens because of two reasons. First, using bad cheap coals. Second, if there is air leak from the hose.
