How to Setup A Hookah - The Premium Way

The Ultimate Guide

We have just covered the key steps for setting up a hookah. However, knowing how to use one is not the same as knowing how to make your usage as enjoyable as possible. It is interesting to note that hookah smoking has a long, rich history dating back hundreds of years. Nevertheless, if you are new to smoking hookahs, it can be confusing working out how to get maximum benefit and enjoyment out of your smoking session. To help with this, we will now be discussing important things to consider when using a hookah.

Once you have correctly set up your hookah, the next step is preparing the hookah for smoking. Correctly using a hookah is vital, because it affects the entire smoking experience. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

Use good quality shisha that appeals to your tastes:

There is a huge variety of shisha flavours on the market. By finding one that meets your tastes, the overall hookah smoking experience will be heightened for you.

Make sure the hookah is properly set up and balanced:

A surefire way to quickly ruin your session is to accidentally spill burning charcoal on you. By taking appropriate precautions your hookah will serve its intended use, and nothing else.

Use enough charcoal, so that the shisha does not go out:

Having a ready supply of natural shisha charcoal on hand means your sessions can go for your preferred time limit.

Take regular breaks between sessions to allow the shisha to cool down:

It is recommended that you drink plenty of water during these breaks, thus keeping you hydrated.

Shisha flavours improve the overall experience

Picking the right shisha flavour for you is important, because it can enhance or ruin your experience. Shisha flavours can include everything from fruity to chocolatey tastes, and it can be a lot of fun experimenting with different types until you find one that best suits your taste buds.

Some of the more popular shisha flavours include Al Fakher Mint Frost, Double Apple, Chocolate, and the citrus blend wryly named Sex On The Beach.

Experiment by mixing and matching flavours

Does chocolate go well with apples? Can you mix strawberries with cola, or banana with gum? You certainly can if you so like. Don’t be afraid to experiment by using a variety of different shisha flavours when using a hookah, because finding out what flavour combination you like best is part of the process.

Slow and steady breaths work best

To get the most out of your hookah session, you should be trying to savour the experience. This means pacing yourself to enjoy individual puffs, and really take in the shisha flavours. This will be far more enjoyable than rushing through it, and allow you to truly enjoy the whole experience.

Remember that a hookah session does not have to be a solitary activity; many cities have hookah lounges that smokers can attend to socialise with others, discuss strategies for increasing enjoyment, and share shisha from a communal hookah.
