Default Seox herbal should be outlawed

There is nothing worse than herbal shisha. i tried it for the first time tonight and i might as well have sprayed perfume in my mouth and breathed in the smoke of burning paper. There is no substitute for tobacco. i'm really disappointed, its almost impossible to get tobacco in australia.

While it sounds like a good idea on the surface it would only lead to more things being outlawed. Governments like to get a foot in the door by banning something unpopular, then they kick the door in and ban whatever they like.

I dont like it myself but what Dunkel is saying is true. Plus it allows people under 18 to smoke something until they're allowed to.

Tried some Teasha last night.... you're right when you say it tastes like someone sprayed perfume in your mouth. It was absolutely horrid. I am willing to give it one more shot in a couple of weeks with another flavor I purchased but... bleh.. I won't cross my fingers!

The only herbal I have had is Hydro, and it is pretty good. May have to throw some reviews up of this stuff. Only thing I don't like is it is harder to manage the heat and some flavors don't last very long. Anyways, I agree with Dunkel. It could lead to other things if they ban Soex, or any herbal.

Soex, is just nasty. I had it a year ago, and I remember I nearly threw up while smoking it.

My first smoke was Soex and to this day I still don't think it's horrible.

Salaam is good stuff, plus we might all have to start liking herbal if that tax goes through...

This certainly isn't true in the States. Its sold as a smoking product and regulated as such. Under 18's shouldn't be smoking herbal or otherwise.

I've never tried SOex but i have tried a few flavors from Saalaam and the flavor was pretty good but doesnt last very long however. It will still retain flavor even after burnt a little however

I agree.. Hydro Herbal isn't SO bad... But it isn't great either.. Although their flavors often resemble cleaning agents... Windex is probably their best flavor

While I don't like Soex, Afzal's not bad imo.
I also got free samples of HH Black Label a while ago... I gave it away after smoking it for about 10 minutes.

Am I the only one who has tried Hookah Hookah Tea Shisha? Well if I am then I recommend you all try it because it really is great. I mean its no tobacco, but if a buzz or nicotine is not what your after then HH Tea Shisha is amazing. Great flavor and duration. I had blueberry and it tasted like blueberry cheesecake. Very delicious. Soex, Afzal and some flavors of Hydro give Herbal a bad rap, but in everything considered, herbal has come a long way.

Soex is a delightful treat compared to the cosmic evil that King Muessel or Cuzzinz

Soex is definitely not as bad as some other herbals,

I have tried watermelon and pineapple which were extremely wet, flavorsome but I found they heat up really quick and will drip all its flavour down the stem quick and go harsh if you don't use a vortex.. seriously one coal and they were pleasant.

But yeah its not as great as the real thing

The Salaam Spiced Chai is quite good flavor wise but beware it will seriously ghost your hose gives large clouds as well

Take the Nakhla out of the box and packaging and mix up if very dry add 1 tsp of good molasses Amber kind and 1 tsp of vegetable Glycerin per 100 grams mix in well with the tobacco and let it sit in a ziplock bag for about a day or so the tobacco should be fine and good to smoke. no need to waste it.

Don't think Afzal is herbal it is washed tobacco and Soex is Afzal's herbal Line
