I don't know where I read it but an article said that the best thing you can do to preserve your tobacco escence is to store it in the fridge... is that true!? cause I want to try it but I don't want to mess my tobacco XS

most people will say not to put your moassel in the fridge because it can lead to temperature shock.I used to keep all my stuff in the fridge and also know a local retailer that has 2 coolers full of tobacco, and I've never noticed a problem.I've even once smoked tobacco that had been in the freezer!

That is a big big no no! lol

It dries out the juices and it makes the tobacco go into humidity shock. Basically, it messes up your tobacco.

Yeah I've seen that article...Its one of the first that comes up on google. I actually believed it when I was new to hookah and I was so close to putting the shisha in the fridge :O Thank goodness I knew it was bad b4 I even had the chance

I've put pipe tobacco in the fridge, never had problems with that. But I have never put hookah tobacco in the fridge.

I know a lot of people that keep it in the fridge, and I've never seen a problem. Just let it acclimate after you bring it out though.

I wouldn't think storing it in the fridge would be a problem. I store all my other tobacco products in the fridge or freezer ( Cig's in freezer ). But yes, see if there is a difference for us!

I dont see how this "temp or moisture shock is caused". And IMO that is non-existent. I believe the shisha can be in the fridge as long as it is sealed. If not the tobacco will absorb moisture and wont smoke properly (for obvious resons). BUT
i dont think it can affect wet shisha like AF because tobacco is already soaked. I have some spare shisha, i could put some in the fridge to shine some light.

There has a been a thread like this way back! Search engine is your friend! lol I kid I kid.

Anyway I used to think it was a bad thing, turns out I was wrong. It doesn't harm it at all. If you are worried about it drying out throw it in a drawer with humidity control and max that shit. No dry outs there. My friend kept all of his tobacco in the fridge (it was starbuzz). I could never decypher a change between his SB and my SB and I kept mine in room temperature fileing cabinet.

I store mine in the fridge with zero problems thus far, it doesnt dry it out, nor does it lose flavor, imo

I heard it keeps the cigs from going stale and it keeps it fresh. I think this only works for dried dried tobacco only though
