Default has anyone ever tried or heard of this?

i recently thought of making shisha juice. mixing a lot of glycerin with shisha. then let it meld together for about a week, then squeeze all of the juice out and put it in a vortex bowl enough to where it doesn't go through the holes. iv never done it before but iv heard that smoke from shisha is caused by the glycerin in it (and flavor) does anyone think it would work?

The glycerin causes the big fluffy clouds. So the more glycerin, the more smoke I think.
But if you add 'neutral' glycerin to some flavoured shisha the flavour will fade, and you'll only smoke shisha for the clouds, not for the taste.

But a juice... I don't think that will be nice.. if you want big clouds, rather add some glycerin to a shisha bowl for some extra clouds.

I'm missing something here.....
If you know that glycerine makes the clouds, why do you want to squeeze it out?

So are you suggesting that you want to smoke only the juice with no tobacco?

It's not going to work. You need the tobacco to allow the glycerin to burn slowly and evenly. That's like asking if you can just light a candle wick without all that useless wax stuff.

Waste of time.

As I've said many times before, Hookah smoking is the pinnacle of a half a millennium old. It is developed, refined, and designed to perfection. If smoking straight glycerin was a great idea, we'd all be smoking glycerin right now. We're not. If you want to find out why, go ahead and smoke some straight glycerin. Don't say I didn't warn ya.

The more glycerin the more muted and off the flavors become. If you want to smoke nothing but the juice go grab some Epic Smoke.

The liquid in the bowl would just evaporate and leave you with nothing in the bowl...

You could just take a cheap brand and destroy it with glycerin, it'd give you the effect I *think* you're looking for.

You'd have even less flavor than flavorless-brand-X has to begin with, but you'd have huge clouds.

While you were at it, you might as well put TONS of ice in the base too to help. If you're not concerned with flavor, go all out. Milk+Ice, etc.

All the old tricks.

2-3 Teaspoons of Glycerin is enough for 250g of tobacco, you'll get huge clouds from that!

Not that I'm a hookah expert but this may work. If you guys have ever used an e-cig it is the same concept. Flavored juice with glycerin is heated up and produces smoke and flavor in e-cigs. The difference between this and an e-cig is that they add nicotine to smoke "healthier" persay. This is the same concept but without the nicotine being added. Now there are other things in the juice but the overall concept is the same. The liquid would evaporate over time but you could still get a session out of it I think.

This seems like a pheasable idea and should at least be explored before being discounted.
