Hi all, just wondering if you know of any gas stations in/around Redmond Washington that sell shisha? It'd be nice if there is that way I can grab some as I fill up.

Any Smoker Friendies around you? We have a few here in NC that are also convenience stores/gas stations.

Perhaps the problem is more that NHT is illegal to begin with. I don't get pissed off if someone sees a drink in my hand and assumes it's alcohol. Don't wanna start a grand debate here, but .02 is .02. Legality aside what's the issue?


Legality is the entire issue. So many people here have taken crap for their desired hobby of hookahing, and strive to educate people that hookahs aren't "typical waterpipes". So when a bunch of little hippster kids going to school on mommy and daddy's dime light up in tribute to 420, and have to pick a hookah as the tool for them to use. Hookah takes enough crap and bad press without these ignorant little children. People keep using hookahs for NHT, we(the hookah community) may suffer with increased regulation, higher taxes, etc.

i had said something along the lines that i have never heard of that and it doesnt seem likely to me but ya know illinois and smoking dont really go along well, either way that would be awesome if we had a gas station that had shisha stock save me some time.

This answer probably won't help you much, but every time I have seen shisha at a gas station it has been a junk brand.

Hmm yeah good point. I didn't think of that.

I called up my local Chevron and they said they carried some shisha. I'm going to scout it out tomorrow

Anything you guys would say specifically to stay away from? Be it shisha or coals? I'm always open to trying new things, but I don't want to waste on things that are known to be garbage haha

most people on here would tell you to stay away from starbuzz(Gives most people headaches), hookah hookah(flavor lasts about 20 min and most are weak), and fantasia (only because it says 50g and half of it is juice :/) there are most likely others but older more wise people might chime in. Try for Al Fakher and if your lucky Nakhla. Hope i helped.

Starbuzz isn't bad, kind of expensive and we don't like their politics if you will, but not a bad smoke The HookahHookah is good advice. Stay clear. The smoker friendly here carries Pharaohs. Brown plastic locking jars. *I* am not fond of it and its expensive but i do know people who say its not bad.

Nakhla is like the budweiser of shisha, it's unwashed so it packs a punch and is almost impossible to burn, but most of the flavours leave a bit to be desired.

If you are going with quicklight coals try to find 3 kings or Akhla. Most likely to find 3 kings in a gas station. If you see exotica finger coals and have a burner to start them, grab them.

And now others will chip in with their advice. :)

Oh, almost forgot, is you see bluish boxes and that say Jewel...RUN.

every discount smoke shop and gas station in Knoxville carry Jewel only. Avoid this stuff at all cost. It is evil and will probably take advantage of you in your sleep. Don't wake up sticky,broke and confused...Do Not buy Jewel.

How much was the hookah? No offense, but just going to go ahead and let you know it is a not-very-well-made Chinese one and won't last you long (it's going to break down and rust eventually). But hey, as long as it smokes and you like it, no worries. :)

As for decent local places to pick up tobacco and coals, try looking up Middle Eastern grocery stores in your area. They tend to have "hookah sections" and will hopefully carry the more traditional stuff, like Nakhla and Al Fakher, and Coconaras or Exoticas for coals. Some I've come across have carried nothing but Starbuzz for tobacco and nothing but Three Kings or Goldens for coals. You'll eventually find out that natural coals are way better than quicklights. Either way, if all else fails, there's ordering online from the few good sites that are left.

Also, try splitting those QLs in half, and placing the two halves on opposite sides of the bowl. Should yield better heat management, and a better smoking experience. ;)
