The Role of Charcoal in a Hookah Session
Charcoal is essential to any hookah session as the type of hookah charcoal you light up can affect various aspects of your smoking experience. In fact, the taste and longevity of your session is very dependent on what your charcoal is made out of.
In general, there are two types of hookah charcoal available: natural charcoal and quick light hookah charcoal. At Coco Smoke, we are firm believers in natural charcoal and therefore offer it to our customers.
Natural Coconut Charcoal vs. Quick Light Charcoal
Hence the name, natural coconut charcoal is made up of natural ingredients. In most cases, it’s coconut shell but it can also be manufactured with bamboo, lemonwood, and orangewood. It offers a pleasant taste, free of chemicals. Even though it might take longer to light, it will stay lit longer than quick light charcoal. Not only is natural coconut charcoal healthier for you, it’s also less messy and burns at a steadier pace.
Quick light charcoal, on the other hand, can be lit very quickly, sometimes within 30 seconds using a lighter or torch. It’s made up of benzene, which is a flammable chemical so it might be a good choice if you’re traveling or smoking outdoors. With quick light charcoal, it’s essential to light the coal fully to burn off all the flammable materials before you smoke. This is because the chemicals can release harmful carbon monoxide.
Natural Charcoal Offers the Best Smoking Experience
If you’d like to make the most out of your hookah experience, you can’t go wrong with natural charcoal. Its natural ingredients lead to a less intrusive, smoother flavor that you may not be able to achieve with quick light charcoal.
