hookahSqueeze is a relatively new type of tobacco and nicotine-free shisha product, unlike the traditional molasses based flavours, Hookah Squeeze (Actually spelt hookahSqueeze) is a vapour paste. This is a new innovation to the shisha world and is a welcome alternative especially with the new tobacco tax levies applied to tobacco free molasses.
Hookah Squeeze has proven to be quite a popular new type of flavour, however, we do get a lot of calls, live chat requests and question in regards to how to use the product so here are our most Frequently Asked Questions:
Q - How much of the hookahSqueeze do I need to use?
A - To enjoy a 45 minute shisha session, you simply need to use around 5g of the paste if you are smoking it on its own and between 1-3g if you are looking to mix it in with other flavours including tobacco.
Example of how to use
Q - How many smoking sessions out of 50g?
A - Typically, you will be using around 5g at a time so should get around 10 sessions out of a 50g tab and more if you are looking to be mixing these flavours. It should be noted though that this will depending on the type of charcoal and bowl used as well as how you smoke the pipe.
Q - Do you prepare hookahSqueeze the same way as normal flavours?
A - The first few steps are a little different, you need to thoroughly mix the flavour with a spoon or spatula so that its nice and smooth. Next using either wet hands, a spatula, shisha tongs or even the back of a teaspoon, rub the paste into the bottom of the bowl and spread evenly. After that, you would add foil, make holes and use hot charcoal as normal.
Please note: Hookah Squeeze takes a little longer to get going than standard molasses so please give it a few minutes for the smoke to get thicker.
Q - Can hookahSqueeze be used with a standard bowl or do I need a special type?
A - Whilst we would recommend a funnel / phunnel type, vortex or flat bowl, you can actually use any type of bowl for this.

Q - Won't the paste be dripping through the holes in the bowl?
A - No, hookahSqueeze will keep its shape for some time and will form a protective skin as the flavour is heated and smoked. The paste will slowly shrink as the flavours are dehydrated.

Q - Can you blend hookahSqueeze with tobacco?
A - Definitely! We highly recommend that you mix hookahSqueeze with different combinations to create your own perfect mixes! Don’t forget, hookahSqueeze will give your bowl an extra intense new dimension of flavour. All you have to do is either mix the hookahSqueze flavour into the tobacco flavours or place a thin layer along the bottom of the bowl (1-3g). You then apply the tobacco on top as normal. Make sure that there is appropriate spacing between the tobacco / hookahSqueeze and the foil/charcoal to avoid overheating the products.

Q - Why is it important to mix the flavour first before using?
A - It's very important to mix the flavours first before smoking because the paste and the actual flavour itself can sometimes separate when not being used. If you do not mix them then you will not get a good strong flavour.
Q - Does it give a thin or thick smoke vapour?
A - hookahSqueeze produces nice thick smoke vapour with lots of flavour! We recommend that you use a Shisha Heat Management System to help you control the heat and in turn the amount of smoke being generated.
Tip: Make sure that you thoroughly mix the paste before using and apply to the bowl using slightly wet hands as that will reduce the amount of flavour that gets stuck to your fingers.
