    Thumbs up Smoking marijuana from a shisha pipe...?

    A lot of the indian/asian/arab culture involves smoking a shisha pipe with molases covered tobacco ( tobacco is washed manytimes first) would be okay to sprinkle in some budds... I won Der what the buzz would be

    So anyone tried that?

    It's done quite a lot, although the bud I find burns too fast, unless you really mix it in with the mollases.

    You'll find that hookah bars usually have those mini bbq looking windproof tops on their hookahs, this is done by more legit bars and to make it really hard for someone to throw a bit of weed in.

    It is more relaxing than a pipe of bong though, since your not constantly repacking.

    That's the only reason I still smoke joints, and not just bongs, regardless of how much better a bong is, you can't just sit there other a bong, watching your favourite TV programme, well you can, but it's not as good as with a joint. I see a pot hookah as a bit of a cross between the two.

    Hard to see how a windcover on a hookah would prevent putting foreign substances in a hookah as it shelters the coals, not the bowl.

    Sheesha works well for me. As it vaporizes rather than burns the stone is longer lasting and more intense.

    Ive smoked a shish pipe before with bud on its own and bud + tabacco and also hash + tobacco. You can get some big hits if someone can get it lit up right like you would a chillum, if you use the stone. But with lighter that can be crap, much rather a one hit bong then a multi hit bong, just need to clear the pipe with clutch or you don't get that same taste.

    only ever used hashish/tobacco on a proper hookah and works lovely. there is a sheesha bar fairly local which before it got popular me and my friends would go there to eat and smoke, the owner used to allow us to smoke joints as they were never very busy

    ive used a small sheesha with no coal's to smoke herb from and its okay, just like a large bong. hit it now n then as it doesn't constantly burn

    It's going to be very hot... since the windcover clips and sometimes CLAMPS, similar to the way kilner jar lids work onto the bowl...


    Try having a few coals lit for a while, then unclamp a windcover to take the coal base off to put weed in the bowl... all i can say is FUCKING OUCH.

    And, you don't need the weed IN the bowl to smoke it, it needs to be burnt, I.E just throw it on the coal and toke.. with a wind cover, it makes this difficult.

    being ignorant to hooka and shisha bars and never smoked a blunt I must ask why would you want to mix sweet tasting or even harsh pot with molassas and any tobaco product to me that is just a waste of good pot...and we smoked ciggies for 30 years till we recently quit...
    is it a culture thing or does it just taste good

    I don't mix tobacco with my bud even when i smoked 30 a day in my early 20s (stopped years ago) but with hash it definitely helps it burn better and without it, you would struggle. As for shish, any multi hit bong can be more social experience than a one hit bong, especially when in a restaurant setting. Some thing about passing the pipe around that makes it feel more connected.

    Sprinkling ground up herb on the sheesha tobacco makes for a very smooth and relaxing smoke. Some flavours of sheesha, like honey, disguise the taste whereas others, like mintos, bring out the flavour. Dropping bud on hot coals is just a waste. A hookah is a steampunk version of a vaporizer and that is how it works best.

    When I was last in Egypt around 38 years ago I scored some hash in the slum district in Cairo and the dealer decided he wanted an England / Egypt smoking contest which we did with a hash sisha which was a clay vessel with a straight pipe about 15" long sticking out of it and you didn't put the hash on tobacco but was first broken up then mixed with red hot charcoal, stuffed into a chillum type of pipe and inserted into the top of the shisha so the hash burned furiously and you got really strong hits.

    I didn't win the contest but got a discount for being a plucky challenger although I'd not venture into the same area today ( I was with my Egyptian brother in law ) unless you wanted to see me on the news having my head cut off by the moslem brotherhood.

    That's interesting. I've smoked both ways in the Levant.

    What I term the "bong" method is all about coughing and getting as monged as possible, often in the context of some macho contest to see who can get completely ripped whilst enduring the most discomfort.

    In contrast the more subtle "sheesha" method involves steampunk vaporization to get subtly ripped whilst enduring the least discomfort.

    I had a hookah that was designed just for smoking weed.

    My hookah was just like a regular hookah except at the top you could remove the bowl (no ashtray) and it fit a large variety of bowls that are used in bongs. It had 2 hoses (If I remember correctly) where connected maybe 2/3 of the way up. It was all glass (except for the hoses, duh) and at the and of the hoses had a mouthpiece that was around the size of a small pipe. It was actually pretty easy to clean out
    However, I can’t say I was really a fan. The smoke got stale, unless you killed the bowl like a regular bong. Also because of how the hoses connected at 2/3 of the way and also different air flows (2 people sucking) it was frustrating clearing the chamber. One thing thing a friend of mine did with broken pieces, (I think I might purposely break it if still had) was put the large parts in a fish tank for decorations.
