Does Smoking a Hookah Make You High?
There are many variations on this question out there, and also many different answers. I‚Äôll let you know what I think from my experience:
Smoking a hookah, even just tobacco, does make you high!
But, it is a special type of high. If you can remember the head rush that you got from smoking your first cigarette, then you an have an idea of what it‚Äôs like. Hell, sometimes the feeling is so strong that I can barely stand up afterward.
The type of shisha you are smoking can make a big difference. I‚Äôve found the cleaner tasting shishas (like mint, and not something like pineapple) can cause you to get a bit more high. Maybe I only think that because I like those better and can take deeper puffs. Also, although this idea hasn‚Äôt been tested, I am pretty sure that just taking a lot of deep breaths gets you a little headdy feeling. If you want to try something fun, do this:
Take 7 deep breaths breathing fully out and fully in with each breath and then on the 7th breath, hold your breath for as long as you can.
I learned this trick from Kundalini Yoga (a very ool practice by the way). Kundalini says that if you do this 3 times in the morning while watching the sun rise, then it will make you be happy all day. I‚Äôve never tried it, but I know that doing it once anytime can make me feel great for a few minutes.
Happy Hookah Smoking!
