Yeah that is Herbal shisha. Soex is really not that great. your better off just smoking regular tobacco flavors. It would be more enjoyable. more flavor, last longer, ect.

I've only had one flavor of Soex and that was it for me. I think it was watermelon, but yeah I think it would be better to shop around and get some other brands of tobacco. Unless you want to try Soex who knows maybe you'll like it

The difference is that there is no nicotine and no tar (but dat doesn't make a diff cu hookah tobacco doesn't have any tar) I hear its decent, but your better off with real tobacco as it tastes better.

First of all Soex IS NOT HERBAL it is made from spent sugar cane and sugar cane is not an herb.

Not much more to say about Soex other then it's pretty mediocre (but not horrible by any means) and since smoking is about delighting the senses I don't see the point in smoking something that just isn't very good when you can buy tons of great stuff for about the same amount.

Given that risks of smoking cigarettes are widely overstated and anti-smoking research is blatantly biased I would treat any article about shisha with a lot of caution. Given that when you smoke a narghile you are not burning the tobacco to nearly the extent when you smoke cigarettes but rather vaporizing the liquids in the bowl the threat health wise would be far less were it not for the coals. Basically, the truth is that smoking narghiles is basically an unknown health wise but it certainly is a risk and smoking Soex will likely not reduce your risks. If you want to reduce the risks you are taking don't smoke more then a hour a day, don't inhale, clean everything after each session and make sure your coals are fully lighted before smoking.

Anything herbal is going to taste like cat shit rolled in burnt hair.

Dude, stay away from this Soex stuff. You will kick yourself in the ass once you try a bowl. Stay with the real stuff, its a better smoke and plus it makes you look cool by 20 points.

First of all, people are using herbal like it distinguishes soex from shisha. Tobacco is a plant. Shisha is herbal.

Second of all, soex does not have nicotine, but it does have tar. Any smoke has tar. Tar is defined as the particulate matter in smoke while burning tobacco or other plants.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tar_%28tobacco_residue%29

Just letting you know the only real difference is probably the nicotine and taste. Nicotine is just a stimulant like caffeine.

Eck, I wouldn't wanna even try "Herbal" Shisha as we all aren't sure of what is in it anyways...Only like sugar cane and whatever. Who knows what other health effects it could have, it could probably have almost the same hazardous effects as it would with tobacco but you never know

Soex Mint is pretty good, it's one of my favorite mints, but the others aren't worth smoking.
