Default hookah hookah headache

why is it that everytime i smoke hookah hookah i end up getting a headache after 10 minutes of smoking? the same for hookah freak. i havent heard of HH having a high nicotine content so its probably not that HH/HF has a tangiers effect (the tangiers buzz is pleasurable for me).

i love the flavors, dont get me wrong, HH/HF has some great flavors, but it ends up being a sort of Hookah Siren, calling to you, looking really sexy, but as soon as you put your lips to it, it gives you this massive headache. does anyone else have this same thing happen to them with HH/HF?

i recall back when boomhauer came over to smoke, we had a bowl of HH lemonade going on, great stuff! but we both ended up with some crazy headaches.

one thing i do notice however and want to make note of, there is only one HF flavor that doesnt give me a massive buzz and thats atomic fireball. for some reason, every flavor but atomic fireball will give me a really bad headache.

nah its not the coals. i use only exoticas, and ive never had this headache with any other shisha. for some reason HH/HF is a surefire way to get a bad headache. problem is that HH/HF is so good that i keep buying it!

my guess is that there might be some sort of chemical or something that you have a reaction to? thats the only thing i can come up with, but if boom got it too i dont know what to say...

yea. its a really tricky thing. thats why im hoping that by posting this thread, others will be like, "hey! the same exact thing happens to me!". for a while i was thinking maybe im smoking it way too fast, BUT, today for example, i start smoking, and ten minutes into the session i have a intense headache already.

i think for the future i should stick with (in my case) starbuzz. great flavor and no buzz. but the hookah siren that HH/HF is, im always drawn to it knowing that im going to end up with a headache.

the only thing ive heard about HH/HF is that its low grade shisha. not sure if that plays a factor or not. i wouldnt like to think of myself as some sort of hookah connesuier (sp) but who knows, maybe smoking the good stuff has made the low grade stuff into instant headache shisha.

could be it, if thats the case then shit. cause i smoke only starbuzz, havana, and layalina pretty much. I would like to try HF really badly too, some of those flavors sound good.

eh these shots or two will tell me if thats it or not. cause that very much so could be the cause

I think I read somewhere that SaharaSmoke was saying something about adding more "buzz" to their shisha

Negative on the headache for me daedra ... nothing out of the ordinary anyhow?

I haven't smoked a lot of HH/HF but I am going to be smoking some HF soon, so I will pay particular attention to any headaches ... I will use exoticas too as a comparison.

Do you drink water or something like that while smoking? Do you have food in your stomach? Cuz as you know, that could be a factor ...

Cheers!

lol! who knows man.

HF has some GREAT stuff! but for me and this HH/HF headache thing, i only smoke it when im feeling brave or when the stuff is calling to me. maybe there is a point where one becomes a hookah connesuier like a wine taster - only the finest stuffs appease the palette.

yea, actually, i make it a point before everytime i smoke HH/HF, i grab something to drink and eat a meal but always the same result. empty stomach, full stomach, something to drink, nothing to drink, same thing happens.

I get the headache too when I smoke HH, but seeing as how I only have HH and AF and I haven't been smoking very long, I don't think it's the fact that you've gotten too used to only smoking high grade tobacco. It could possibly be the fact that it is low grade shisha, or maybe it triggers a mild allergic reaction in some people. Is it just like a normal headache or is it a sinus headache (around the eyes, brows, forehead and bridge of the nose)?

I find drinking ice water while I smoke helps alleviate the headache for me usually, or at least makes it much less severe. You could try that or I imagine hot tea would help a good bit also.

Hmmm.. I also get a slight headache when I smoke my HF apple jax and BB pancake.
I never paid it much attention to just being HF till now.

i was hoping that it wasnt because i normally smoke starbuzz etc! i would hate to think of myself as some sort of pretentious hookah smoker, "i only smoke the good stuff, that other stuff is rubbish for the proles". the headache is a normal one. but what strikes me is that only after ten minutes of smoking the headache appears.

Yeah I noticed it comes pretty early on too. Yeah usually a normal headache for me although I've had a few times where I get it in my sinuses, but I'm highly susceptible to those. Almost everytime it rains I get them =/.

And nothing wrong with wanting quality tobacco, definitely doesn't make you pretentious. I think that if it weren't for the flavors, I'd give up HH completely. But yeah next time you smoke try accompanying it with water or a tea of sorts.

i swear, HH/HF are the Hookah Sirens, the flavors are just sooo good and its priced well, but the headache i get, ugh.. as i said earlier, ive made a point of having something to drink with it, but same result. maybe its because of the batch? who knows! so far though, some people dont get it, but some people do.

I've only had one flavor from HH and I didn't have a problem with that flavor at least. It was hazelnut. I've never had HF.

I use several HH flavors and haven't had anything like that happen, luckily. I just had some of the HH honey earlier. I haven't tried the HF yet but will as soon as it arrives. I have heard of others who had to take asprin before smoking because they ended up with headaches. And they used AF, SB and Sinbad. So I think it's not so much the grade as it is something in the mix just doesn't agree with you.

Yeah, so far, I've absolutely fallen head over heels for Hazelnut, Acai Berry, and Butterscotch. But the headache really is bad. I don't know. Could it possibly be the way the glycerin mixes with the some of the other ingredients that instead of giving a nice high, gives you a headache? Another thing I don't like about the brand is the buzz. I hate the dopey, high feeling.
