The Facts And Truth About Soex 100% Tobacco Free Herbal Hookah

80 posts in this topic
Here are the facts and truth about Soex coming from from the Exclusive Importer of Soex:

Soex is a product some love and some hate. It is not bad but not as good as Tobacco. The issue is that most people compare it to tobacco and of course Soex will not appeal to Tobacco Smokers.

Soex is Natural . Herbal. It is made with Suger Cane Abstract and Natural Herbs. Soex is primarily used by non tobacco users and cities that have banned tobacco smoking in Hookah Bars. Believe it or not, Soex sales have reached records in the past 5 months due to new laws nationwide which you might see coming to your area.

If you smoke tobacco, it will take you time to adapt to Soex. Some of us do not accept the facts but we like the Tobacco Nicotine. I do, I can not go without hookah for over a day. We smoke in the warehouse daily with multiple bowls. Is that good? Well no but I have to.

I have tried Soex. It will never be the same as Tobacco but it is smooth. It Tastes similar to tobacco, made by the same company as Afzal, and as all tobaccos on the market, not all Soex flavours are very good or number one. I am an exclusive importer for Soex and I am straight out telling you the facts.

I personally like the Peach, Strawberry, Double Apple, Blueberry, Blackberry, Sweet Melon, Orange and LemonLime. These are my favorites. The least sellers for us are Aniseed and beleive it or not Pina Colada.

Feel free to ask me anything you want about Soex. I am here to listen. If you have any strong comments, feel free to email them to me at info@exoticimportsusa.com , or feel free to post them here and I will check and reply to all comments directed to me.

Soex is the healthier way to go around hookah but it is more of the future than now. Once all the new laws kick in and taxes rise, more and more people will be smoking Soex just like in UK and Canada. Some states effected so far by laws are NY, CA, NJ, WA, TX IL and much much more.

Also from what I hear, the government is trying to enforce online banning of tobacco sales, so if this happens, Soex will also be a prefered brand online as that would be the only thing you can buy online. There is another brand out there which is herbal and Exotica is working on releasing their Herbal but till them, stay safe, and enjoy the hookah!

Looking forward to hearing your comments.

Thanks Gabriel smile.gif Usefull for sure.

My only gripe is that Tobacco is also herbal wink.gif The word 'Herbal' is bounded around a lot. Sugar cane is a plant just like tobacco is a plant....

Right, that's me off my soapbox.

I wont be smoking Soex, thanks but no thanks. I'll buy from out of the country if I have to or I dont quit. We got quite a bit of time before any law is made official. First they gotta prove that hookah tobacco is harmful when compared to cigarettes, and so far they havent. It's all based on badly run experiments. We'll see what happens most definitely.

Thanks for the info man.

My Personal Preferance is Tobacco as well. Hookah Tobacco is .5% nicotine vs cigs which is about 6-7%. What are facts about hookah is that you can get mouth cancer, lung cancer due to the smoke intake which each hookah head is about the smoke level of 20 cigs and light headed due to over intake of coal once. Regarding the 2 cancers, nothing can really be done. Regarding the Light headed which I would love to feel but never get no matter how much I smoke, best advise, change your bowls after 1 hour!!! I have seen people smoke the same head for 3 hours with 3 people at hookah bars. What the hell are they thinking. Why not just place coal on the hookah and in the head and smoke.

But, back to the topic, I will smoke Soex if I have to and hookah bars that carry Soex are doing very well. Given the fact that there are no other hookah bars around serving tobacco as well as they offer it as a natural safer or herbal product which most women like as well as health consious people that want healthier. Also, people that dont want the nicotine and want to smoke in a social life.

Sorry if I have a few errors in spelling or exetra above. Hvent slept for a few days. Just had a baby smile.gif

Take care guys.. Looking forward to replies!

No it is not you. Some of the flavours are real good and strong and others very light flavoured. Honestly, we know what to do when we release Exotica Brand this year for Herbal and Tobacco. I have told numerous time to Soex Manufactorer what to do and they wont listen to me but I know what to do. Hehe smile.gif

I take objection to this comment. I'm a woman and I live a healthly lifestyle. Yes, smoking is bad, but it's one of the vices I choose to do. My bf doesn't want me to become addicted to Nicotine, thus I control how much I smoke (i can go without for a month and not think twice about it unlike him and his ciggy addiction).

I have smoked Soex before. Several different flavors including Peach. I have not enjoyed them. Flavor isn't the only thing I look for when I buy Shisha Tobacco. Duration of bowl, harshness of smoke, taste thru the whole session. Soex has failed to provide this in every flavor I have tried.

Also Oggie505 is right: SMOKING ANYTHING IS BAD. You weren't designed to take in anything but air into your lung. Smoking sugar cane and mysterious herbs isn't any better than smoking tobacco.

One thing I do want to know is exactly WHAT Soex is made from... or any herbal alternative shisha "tobacco" is really made from. With most shisha tobacoo, we have a general idea of what's included (and it's listed on most brand's boxes). Not so with Soex, which always worried me. So IMO, I do not consider Soex any safier than standard shisha tobacco.

ITs like smoking...and smoking...and you keep smoking..but you dont feel anything...so whats the point of smoking LOL

no i am just kidding, i guess its good for those who want to enjoy a hookah, and dont want any nicotine at all...i actually think this will take off pretty big with the self righteous non smoker communities..not a complete take over..but there is a market for it...think about it hookah lounges will be more filled with people.

and yes i agree smoking anything can be bad for you...infact smoking is huge risk factor for so many diseases, also alcohol, and obesity..these are the top three..... anyways smoking this excessively will just as harmful as regular smoking...only dif is your not addicted to the nicotine, which will lower the probablity of you smoking in excess. ANything is moderation is always good.

ok, my personal beef.

Soex hides their main ingredient by writing it in PIG LATIN on the carton. This points to a less than honest approach and looks like they are hiding something. I don't trust companies that use stupid tricks to hide facts. The fact is that it's straight cellulose. Which is why if you get any taste at all, it dies in about 15-20 minutes and you are stuck with a hookah that tastes like you are smoking wood chips. Which Sugar cane bagessy essentially is.

Second, if I remember correctly, the ingredients are sugar cane bagessy, molasses, glycerine and flavouring. Where the heck is the "herbs" in that??? Sugar cane fiber is heardly Herbal, heck, tobacco is actually considered an "herb" more that sugar cane ever will be, so then you add the molasses, glycerine and antificial flavour. I don't recall any herbs listed here. I'd be happy to hear a clarification on this one from the source.

I do remember trying 2 samples ent by a guy on here a long time ago claiming to be the sole US importer. You guys much switch up frequently.

So if you want "truth" about soex, how about printing the truth in plain english on the box. Hardly a trustworthy start.

Dang mr exotica, what the hell Soex are you smoking?

This kid only decided that it was going to benefit his health by only smoking Soex from that point on. Too make a long story short, there is a puke stain on the persian carpet we were smoking on. i have inhaled some Soex, and never shall i again. There is no truth, the only truth is that the flavors don't last and it's not tobacco.

You don't even completely "smoke" the tobacco either. Hence the reason that if you are smoking a hookah correctly, you will not get harsh smoke, because you should mostly be ihaling vaporized glycerine. Also the reason for the Aluminum screen so the tobacco itself does not burn.

It's no better for your lungs that normal mu'assel, so why should anyone smoke it if it's low quality flavor?

Interesting comments and all taken with no harm:


Regarding Soex. I am aware of the pig latin and have no explanation. I am only the distributor. Not the creator or the manufacturer.. I have asked them why pig latin and they had noting to tell me. As you know, the main content is suger cane. Also, believe it or not, it sells alot! Many many people love it due to the laws. Yes smoking is smoking but the laws bans "Tobacco / Nicotine"

I personally like a few flavours. It is not my personal top choice of smoking. I rather smoke Tobacco. Regarding pucking, I have never ever ever heard of anyone pucking off of Soex. I know from tobacco but Soex?

Anyhow, stay in touch and keep me posted. I love hearing feedback. That is how when Exotica Comes out, it will be perfected! smile.gif
