Default Glycerin FTW!!!

Wow this stuff really is the shit! My AF peach never was giving off as much smoke as my AF grape so whyle at the drugstore today I asked if they sold Glycerin, they did but it was kinda expensive. $5.00 for a 6 oz bottle but wow! this shit really does do the trick! Mixed a little in my Peach and cloud city!

glycerin is great if you wanna blow big clouds.It should be noted that most contemorary brands are not shy w/the glycerin. However, I preffer more traditional mollasses/honey based moassel.

Yes. Folks often mix glycerin w/honey/mollasses based brand to enhance the moisture.It can make for a more even burn, and of course, bigger clouds.

Well the FDA says its okay for food but they never said anything about smoking it lol.

Glycerin and honey is naturally in shisha even when you buy it. Buying glycerin and adding it into the shisha is just a restorer for very dry or old shisha. It seriously brings back dry shisha to life lol. Not only that, it gives off more clouds, that is why most shishas have glycerin in them.

glycerin is not naturally in shisha. It is an additive. and not all brands use it.also, it is not added to tobacco by manufacturers for the sake of clouds, but because it is an excelent immulsifier which burns flavorlessly and evenly, and can hold the flavor throughuot the smoke. It is also used as a presservative which can keep the tobacco moist.
For centuries, moassel was made using only mollasses/honey. It was only recently that glycerin was added to the wetter, more contemporary brands. Personally, I preffer mollasses/honey based brands but unfortunately glycerin is hard to avoid these days.

honey is fine for mixing. just don't use a ton of it, and keep in mind that honey turns to stone when you burn it. So your tobacco will be a solid brick about 1/3 of the way through your session.
You can also use mollasses as an imulsifier, but you will need toacclimate for afew hours to take the edge off the flavor. You can even mix the 2.
