Why You Should Stop Smoking Shisha and Start Vaping it.

August 10, 2016

 Shisha is one of the most popular social trends of recent years, especially in cities with a buzzing nightlife. Even smaller towns now have one of two Shisha bars where people can meet up and smoke Shisha as often as they like. For those who aren’t aware, Shisha is a flavoured tobacco, usually mixed with charcoal, which is filtered through water in a pipe. This filtration is believed to give Shisha (also known as Hookah) its unique taste and flavour. The waterpipe and tobacco usually last for over an hour and users are subjected to massive amounts of smoke and toxins. The number of Shisha bars seems to be increasing and this is a troubling statistic, especially since it’s far more dangerous than cigarette smoke



E-Shisha is a bit different but follows the same principle as real Shisha


E-Shisha is the electronic form of traditional Hookah, with the main difference being that it lacks any tobacco or smoke. E-Shisha has been likened to e-cigarettes in this respect, particularly since they are both ‘vaped’ and come in a variety of flavours. One of the biggest differences between Electronic Shisha and e-cigs is that the former produces much more “smoke” and gives more intense flavours. This isn’t real smoke though; instead it’s water vapour that is created using the device’s internal atomizer and battery. The atomiser heats up the e-liquid and produces vapour, which the user can inhale and exhale in the same way they would with real Shisha.

Traditional Shisha has some health concerns that might put some people off


Since Shisha is produced using a mixture of tobacco, charcoal and some additives to give it flavour, it also contains massive amounts of undesirable toxins. The tobacco present in Shisha is much the same as that found in cigarettes, except the addition of charcoal makes it even more hazardous than regular tobacco. Some believe that since it passes through water it’s safer than regular smoke; however, this is completely spurious. Another noteworthy point about Shisha is that the amount of smoke produced in one session is far greater than any cigarette gives, with 600 puffs (cigarette equivalent) being typical for a one hour Shisha session. This would be the equivalent of smoking two packets of cigarettes in one go!



E-Shisha might not be the same as the real thing, but it has some advantages.


Vaping has been found to be a much healthier alternative to smoking and was endorsed earlier this year by the PHE Report stating that ''Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking''
