Default Soex?

[FONT=Verdana]Hey Iím new to the community and also pretty new to smoking. I have been looking at lots of different shisha's wondering what to get and i fond this one brand called Soex and it claims to have no tobacco or harmful ingredients in it. I was wondering if its really that much better for you or is it still just as harmful as all the other shisha's out there. Not totally sure about this stuff so any help would be nice.[/FONT]

Soex is awful. There has been no studies to see what harm inhaling sugar cane smoke will do. I wouldn't bother with "herbal" shishas. If you're going to smoke a hookah smoke tobacco.

Soex is mostly nasty. Few if any enjoy it or go back for more. As to smoking it is any better than tobacco, as Dunkel said, no studies have researched what cane sugar mulch may do to one's lung.

Plus remember - anything OTHER than air is technically harmful to the lungs. Smoke is smoke - the amount of nicotine you get in shisha tobacco is less than ciggys, but it's still smoking either way.

Soex just has no nicotine. It is still smoking, hence still bad for you. However Soex seems to actually be bad for you just by staring at the box. Best thing to do is cover the screen, and click the "back" button.

Soex is laced with evil zombie powder! Overall, it's not worth getting! There's other stuff you could enjoy!

The fact that you smoke it makes it harmful. Again the only difference is herbals do not have nicotine. Your still inhaling smoke. So I guess in short, yes it's harmful. As to whether it's as harmful is debatable.

Wow, a lot of strong feelings for not liking Soex. As for SOEX, yes it is 100% tobacco free, no nicotine, and no tar. It is healthier in that you are not taking in any tobacco, but as all hookah smoking you are inhaling smoke which is bad. As for taste, depends on the flavors. I mostly smoke Starbuzz and Tonic, but I will mix in Soex mint every now and then. At parties we have a lot of people that do not want to smoke anything with tobacco so we pack bowls with Soex and it's still enjoyable. Soex has a few strong flavors. We sell a lot of Soex and we get many mixed feelings. We have people that love it and people that hate it. You personally just have to try it out for yourself.

I wouldn't even bother. I smoked that stuff once, and that was all it took. What a damn nightmare that stuff is.

here in germany we have a new brand of "tobacco" called Noor NoBacco.
It's nearly the same as Soex, but the taste is better.
Soex tastes like soil
If it's harmful or not isnt tested yet. Because they use sugarcane instead of tobacco, there is no nicotine. Nicotine isn't really harmful. The problem is the tar, and sugarcane also produces tar, when you light it
So there is no difference in harmfulness. Maybe the danger to become addicted isnt that big ... (but im smoking hookah for 3 years and im not addicted too... i can stop smoking for a few weeks, without any problem)

A few things:
1) Soex/Black Label/High Life have no herbal content at all as they are made from sugar pulp.
2) No one has any idea if smoking sugar cane pulp is less dangerous that smoking tobacco.
3) One need not inhale when smoking. Personally I smoke becaouse I love the taste/texture and craftmanship and lacking any taste buds in my lungs I don't see the need to put smoke in them.
4) The health dangers of tobacco use have been so wildly over stated that talking about the issue has become almost impossible. Read some of the stuff I've posted about tobacco research if you are interested in the subject.
5) A topic has been active here recently about the relative threat of narghile to cigarette use and i'd suggest please read the whole thread if they want to know about the reality of how moassel differs from cigarette tobacco.

As to Soex/Black Label/High Life it all tastes like crap and is simply not worth smoking. Honestly I would rather not smoke at all then bother with rubbish. Anyone that is concerned about the health consiquences of to such an extent that they don't want to use tobacco either needs to read up on the subject or not smoke.

I can't handle it.It must be like wearing 5 condoms at once. Soex makes a great answer to Soex herbal "Afzal" which is quite strong. and there are soex coals quick-lite pretty good.From India. If I wanted to smoke hookah and worried about my health it might be an answer.
