I have no experience with this shisha but here is a link to a couple of reviews from our members. Maybe this can help a bit?

smoking anything, be it herbal or tobacco, is going to be bad for you man. If you're gonna smoke...then smoke, and smoke what you like. If you're worried about your health...just cut back a little.

im not trying to be a prick here, just seems like you're splitting hairs.

I agree with this a lot. Combustion is combustion, just because its not tobacco and there's low/no tar (what does that even mean? no tar) doesn't mean it's jam packed full of antioxidants.

If you think you're smoking too much, control yourself. Give yourself a break from the hookah for a week then go to nightly sessions or every other night.

If you want my opinion of herbals, I thought they were all crud a few years until I tried a sample of the black label stuff. I think someone gave me butterscotch or I got it from a free promotion, stuff was damn good for lawn clippings and tree bark. Haven't tried the brand you're talking about, from what I can tell it's a relatively new product.

The no tar and no nicotine is really just a way of making people feel safer about smoking. I fyou notice that about 99% of the regular "shisha" says 0% tar as well... thats because when smoking hookah properly there is no combustion of the tobacco so no tar can be released. The nicotine content of most hookah tobacco is also pretty low, but i am fairly certain that nicotine, in and of itself, isnt a harmful substance. Just addictive.

There has also been some studies that have shown a possible corrolation between smoke from sugar cane bagasse and some kind of lung disease... so who knows.

Smoking anything is bad for you, introducing foreign substances to your body like that is not good. This is a choice you are consciously making everytime you set up and smoke your hookah. If you dont like it, dont smoke.

I, on the other hand, fully acknowledge and accept the risks and smoke anyways... because i enjoy it. And whats the point of living if not to enjoy the life given to you?

amen to that.

Good point on the no tar bit, I kind of thought along those lines but wasn't entirely sure. As far as the nicotine bit, I agree. Most people are just conditioned to believe that the nicotine is what makes tobacco products in general evil, with less emphasis on all the other stuff thrown in during processing.

I am gonna have to do the normal lay down on this:

First off it isnt any more natural than tobacco. Tobacco still grows from the earth...just like the sugarcane hydro comes from. Thats right sugarcane, not herbs, and infact its even more specific than that, bagasse, which is crushed sugar cane.

There are many ties with bagasse and pulmonary fibrosis (just google the studies, i hate doing it each time haha) so add the potential risk of lung cancer from smoking (you still are smoking...) and add pulmonary fibrosis, which by the studies, seems more than just a risk, and you got a product that is actually worse for you.

It also does not taste as good, and does not have as good of a body as tobacco, there is a reason that tobacco was the chosen leaf to smoke, very similar to why we use lettuce and not pine needles in our salads...it just works better that way.
