Default Safe Glycerin?

Can anyone tell me if this glycerin is safe to put into shisha? it says 99.5% glycerin so i figure since it's almost pure glycerin it would be okay to smoke... i know this not the edible kind like vegetable glycerin, but i was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this one...

That seems like a cosmetic glycerin, you're better off getting a vegetable glycerin that is rated as food safe. Glycerin is what helps create the smoke and you want to be using something that is safe to ingest. Some health food stores like Whole Foods will carry vegetable glycerin and worst case scenario you can order some off Amazon.

Google shopping "food grade vegetable glycerin". Cost you about 6$ for 4oz shipped I think.

the only safe glycerine is nitro glycrine.......you may be able to purchase it at your bomb store. Just make sure to add plenty of coals to the top when your ready to smoke!
