Default been gettin alot of headaches recently

so i use to be able to smoke even just 2 and upwards to like 3 a day and not get a headache now i smoke one and its horrible. It started right after i started using exoticas before hand i was using golden quick lights and it was never the issue but now it is. Could it be from too much heat or what ive been using the same tobacco and bowl and hookah for like 5 months now so i know it cant be that. i guess i dont know my head hurts

The reason you've been getting headaches is that the coal used to smoke narghiles releases CO when it burns and if you smokes for several hours a day you'll get a moderate case of CO poisoning. Tobacco ( even "herbal" shisha) is like alcohol in that it is wonderful when used in moderation. Taking massive hits hour after hour will put too much wear and tear on your lungs and put too much CO in your blood stream. It would be better to not inhale at all and limit your sessions to about an hour a day. Marathon sessions lead to headaches, dizziness and nausea. Listen to your body and smoke responsibly.

no no, i get this exact thing.... After i started using these coals. But i never assumed it was the coals at all. But i only usually smoke 1 or 2 bowls in 1 sitting, much more commonly 1.

i used QL coals last night, as a matter of fact, and i didn't notice a headache at all. Golden Lights. I have to say, i think that i think my batch of Exoticas, although burning well and being tasteless, is emitting more CO then my first ever batch.

Wow i wouldn't have noticed this.

Damn i hope my next box is alright...

Try smoking less sessions per day. Go down to one (which is the norm) and breath some fresh air in between hits.

Could be the coals. Were they red hot ALL around before you put it on the bowl? CUz if they are black in some spots, I've noticed I get more headaches like that. Also, if you used quick lites, that's another reason as will. There's all those chemicals in there and if those aren't red hot either, it'll give you a huge headache. I think its probably the CO or something.

That is strange because I use exoticas all the time ( Forani is really good as well ) and never had trouble. I'd suggest that you drop the Exotica guy here a line and offer to mail him the bad box and pay for shipping costs for a fresh box.
