Default Are all herbal tobaccos a waste of time?

A few buddys of mine want to try hookah, but they think if tobacco touches their lungs they're instantly going to get cancer. Is there any decent herbal tobacco out there that is actually worth smoking? (I've heard Soex is just horrible, haven't heard good things about black label either, but didn't know if there were more "underground" brands that might be decent)

Hookah Hookah Black label has some decent flavors as herbal shisha goes but for the most part, yes they are a waste of time. Again, if your wanting to try some just stick to HH Black. And just so your buddies know it doesn't matter what you smoke, inhaling anything burning or smoking is bad for your lungs. It's just something you have to accept.

just pack up normal shisha and tell them its herbal. the mind is a very powerful thing, hence why placebos work

I hear Saalaam makes a good Chai tea flavor, but i'll probably just say screw them and enjoy all the hookah goodness for myself

I keep telling them how good it is, and they finally cracked. They want to make smoking it as healthy as they can, acknowledging it is still bad though.

Herbal are supposed to be better for you, but I to have heard that the flavor is not as strong or last as long as the regular shisha.

Saalaam is amazing. The Chai Tea is out of this world, and exactly what you would expect it to taste like. I need more.

Saalaam is nice stuff, for sure. I just got my Boysenberry and Wildberry in the mail yesterday. Smoked the Boysenberry last night, it was a good flavour. Obviously lacking buzz, so I switched it out after a while (I was feeling like a buzz), but I'll probably keep some of this stuff on hand for if I ever have anyone round who would prefer to smoke a "herbal" blend.
