I smoke stems all the time. Mostly a matter of convenience. But I notice no difference between smokin' em or not.

Great vid DMC. I was too lazy to pull out stems unless they were big enough to build a house. Now I'm just going to break em up.

He was gagging all night.

if there are stems I just usually mix them up and throw them away. No reason to really throw them out. If they are really big i put them at the bottom of the bowl so my tobacco and molasses has a harder time getting stuck in the holes.
Yay me.

The only time i remove stems is if they are large, like larger than 1" - i recently pulled one out of a tub that was close to 2.5" long - lol. I chopped them up and put them back sometimes - i guess I should do that more often

That's good to know, I always thought that stems were bad, I always smoked them but I've just always thought the session would be better without stems.

I always thought it was bad to have the stems in the shisha, however, I always leave them in due to something I heard on an instructional video about how they supposedly add to the flavour. I don't know too much about how correct this is, but I normally smoke with the stems in the shisha.

It seems to me that dmcwebd's experiment is not likely hold true for most of us. Tastes differ which is why some people like Mya, Red Bull, SB and I presume even Kamal banana or Fantasia Margarita. Stems are normally found to be harsh and unplesant tasting for reason and that reason is that nicotine and tars normally found in tobacco are concentrated in the stems and roots far more then the leaves. I will also point out that the wood cellious found in stems and roots lacks all the elements that make tobacco worth consuming. Part of the reason why ciggarettes taste like crap is that they have a high proportion of root and stem material. Cigarette companiess know that the flavour of the product is hurt by having stems and roots in the blend but it's cheaper then properly processing the tobacco and it raises the nicotine content which they see as a good thing.

I made that video live on my channel and and people that were there saw the whole part from me cutting up and packing it and placing the coal, so i have prove that its true what i was saying, if u think stems are bad, i'm fine with your decision, so let people find the real for them self, I had a nice time smoking the stems, and i'd really smoke it again to prove my point that stems are not harsh, dont burn quick, and dont taste like sh*t

Hello DMCWEBD,
This is PakistaniMasty - I always have thought about smoking my stems but I never did. When I get a new container of Shisha and open it for the first time I aways sort through it and take all the stems out so I don't have to bother with that ever with the same package. But ever since I have been smokeing Hookah and buying my own Shisha I have been taking alll the stems out of my Shisha stash and have been putting them in an Empty Starbuzz Container I have enough stems to make like atleast 4 bowls. So I am planning to do what you did but the only thing is I can't get Shisha Juice in the USA and I don't know where to get gycorine from. But I will keep cpllecting all the stems for some wierd reason lol.

Nice, for shisha juice u can buy something called tasty puff which is similar (dont buy coconut, it sucks)
and glycerin u can in the pharmacy, or just add some honey but not too much unless it will be too sweet
