Shisha Brands Ranked By Buzziness

Each and every hookah smoker is unique. Some prefer fruit flavors, some like more earthy flavors like coffee or chocolate. Some like hookah flavors that give off a strong buzz, while others prefer to just savor the flavor and skip the buzz.

Luckily for you, we carry so many different brands and flavors that you are sure to find your perfect smoke here at Hookah-Shisha. In this post we are going to focus on the shisha buzz factor.

We went through our shisha tobacco brands and put them in 4 different categories - Extra Buzzy, Buzzy, Regular, and No Buzz (nicotine-free). Hopefully this guide will help you out next time you are picking out your perfect smoke.

Extra Buzzy Shisha

The following brands are for hookah heavyweights. These brands were crafted with buzz in mind, Tangiers feature unwashed tobacco and Nirvana Eclipse contains Dokha (arabic pipe) tobacco to create a very strong head buzz. We recommend these brands to experienced smokers. 

Tangiers Burley Hookah Tobacco

Nirvana Eclipse Black Super Shisha


Tangiers Noir Hookah Tobacco


Lavoo Herritage Tobacco

Starbuzz Serpent Shisha

Buzzy Shisha

These shisha brands contain a lower buzz than our heavy hitters but more than the average shisha tobacco that we would recommend to beginners. You'll find tons of great flavors within this lineup that don't arrive with a knock punch but look out for the jab.
