Default Cutting your own shisha?

I was just thinking what would happen if I was to chop up my shisha really really fine myself? What effect do you think it would have?

Has anyone done this before?


I'm thinking it will give it alot more airflow. I'll probably give it a try and i'll post a relpy on how it was just for experimentation sake.

Sounds like a good idea! But i think cutting and hadling with the tobacco may cause it to loose flavour =( Try it anyway!

Looking forward to hearing the results.

I tried it, cutting it reaaally fine..

Worked really, really.. bad!

The pieces were so fine they fell down the stem xD

Might work fine in a funnel though, havent tried it

I had the same idea but i wouldn't spend money on a slap chop just to fine cut my blue mist. Plus I think you'll lose most of the juices if you keep handling it out of the bag it came in. But let us know that goes using a phunnel.

nothing wrong w/dicing up some larger pieces or some stems but keep in mind the finer the cut the better chance of your bowl clogging and impeding your smoke.

The consensus is that the same recipe with a finer cut will just make it more heat sensitive. It will be smaller and thus more likely to clog the bowl. Basically it's not going to change anything for the better. At best it won't change at all and you just spent extra time and effort for the exact same outcome.
