Default Do you Refrigerat your shisha???

I was just wondering if other people refrigerant your tobacco? I always have been doing it after my buddy told me about it, he said it would last longer and stay fresh. So is it ok? and do other people do it also?

I have heard its not good for your shisha, let me dig around for the thread, there was a valid reason for it too.

No never...It isn't good for your shisha at all. It makes it go into shock from temperature changes and it makes the juices dry out.

no, the fridge will draw out the glycerine. i think thats why they said not to.... its best to keep it in a cool place.... i keep mine in a dresser for example i have set aside for just hookah.

i keep mine generally at room temp if not in a drawer so it stays somewhat nicer. i did notice after leaving all my hookah things in the car during the winter (had no other options) it was moderately dryer than when i got it. didnt really affect it all that much but over time its gonna get horrible

Hehe I've seen people to to refrigerate the hookah for a "cooler" smoke. IMO, I don't think it really makes a difference cuz its just gonna warm up again in 5 mins anyway. I used to put the hoses in the freezer for 5 mins and then smoke with it...But it became pointless after a while because it would just go back to room temperature in 5-10 mins

never refrigerate it, it will dry it out eventually i used to do it but noticed over a period of time it messes with the tobaccos quality...
don't put the hookah in the fridge just ad crushed ice to the base...
it does the same thing and stays colder longer.

I got a close friend who always refridges his SB. I just have all of my shisha in a hollowed out filing cabinet. Lots of room in there for coals, brushes, shisha, foil, and virtually anything else hookah related. He told me it was good for the shisha when you fridge it up. I am skeptical.

As long as its completely sealed it wont really hurt it. But if not it will pick up moisture and it wont smoke that well.it doesnt have to do with glycerin or honey IMO. its just that it picks up moisture and you really dont want water in your shisha.
AS for keeping it fresh. well all am going to say is "are you going to chew it??" Its dried tobacco leaves with added molasses. Its not fresh when you buy it. We just call it fresh if its production date is recent. Its the same as saying my car is fresh :P lol

Cheers

hehe. My friend kept a 50 gram sample in the frige for over a year...he couldn't get it to smoke after at all...So i guess refrigerating isn't good, or maybe the shisha turned bad...?

just dont do it, its not all that smart, though it seems like a brilliant idea. but cmon tobacco can last a long time in the air (look at cigars and cigarettes) and it isn't like molasses is identical to water, it's awhile before it evaporates
