What Is Shisha?

Shisha most commonly refers to the medium that is smoked through a hookah.  Traditionally, Shisha is blend of tobacco, honey or molasses, glycerin, and a flavoring such as fruit or mint.

Shisha Tobacco Preparation

The tobacco in a shisha blend is typically boiled down to reduce the natural tobacco flavors as much as possible.  This process also removes a majority of the nicotine content.

As a result of the boiling process,  Smoking shisha tobacco out of a hookah is far different than smoking a dry tobacco method such as a pipe, cigar, or cigarette.

How Shisha Smokes

A majority of the smoke actually produced through the hookah comes from burning off the glycerin while the honey or molasses coating preserves the tobacco leaves for as long as possible.  A well prepared shisha head will deliver deep puffs of flavorful, relaxing smoke for somewhere between 30 minutes to an hour.
