Have you ever noticed someone smoking a tube shaped object in public that lights up when the smoker is inhaling? If you have and had no idea what a hookah pen is, you may have thought they were doing something very weird and cool at the same time. The truth is, they were using the future device of smoking, a vaporizer.

Vaporizer (Noun) – A device that generates a particular liquid substance in the form of vapor

What Is A Hookah Pen?

A hookah pen is essentially a hookah vaporizer. At times, depending on the brand and design of the hookah pen, it can also be mistaken for an electronic cigarette. While they technically function the same, make no mistake, they are different.

Why Use A Hookah Pen?

A hookah pen is a great alternative if you prefer not to smoke cigarettes, traditional hookah, if you are not a smoker, or want to do smoke tricks like smoke rings or a french inhale.

For those that smoke cigarettes, you might like a hookah pen due to the fact that most do not contain the addictive chemical nicotine. If you’re reading this and do not know what nicotine is, here’s the definition:

Nicotine (Noun) – A toxic colorless or yellowish oily liquid that is the chief active constituent of tobacco. It acts as a stimulant in small doses, but in larger amounts blocks the action of autonomic nerve and skeletal muscle cells.

If you are a traditional hookah smoker, a hookah pen is less harsh than shisha and coals. It tends to inhale smoothly and does not produce a “kick” in the back of your throat like a traditional hookah can.

If you do not smoke, then a hookah pen will be perfect for you. In my opinion, it is the smoothest smoke that can be inhaled. The ingredients that are typically used to create the flavors, do not cause a kick in the back of your throat or contain nicotine. It’s almost like you never smoked.

How Does A Hookah Pen Look?

A hookah pen is usually a a tube shaped object. They can come in different sizes but the most common size of a hookah penis about the same as a ink pen. Some hookah pens will come as 1 complete unit, others will have 2-3 different pieces that make up the hookah pen. While most hookah pen users opt for the buttonless hookah pen that is automatically turned on when someone inhale, some users prefer one with a button.

How Does A Hookah Pen Work?

There are 3 parts to a hookah pen; a battery, atomizer, and a cartridge. The battery is what turns on the hookah pen. The atomizer contains a heating element. The last but very important piece is the cartridge. It contains the liquid flavor. When activated, the battery sends power to the atomizer. As the atomizer receives power, it heats up. Once the atomizer is hot, it  turns the liquid flavor, into a flavored vapor that we call smoke. This process takes less than 1 second to happen and almost seems instantaneous.

What Are The Ingredients In A Hookah Pen?

Most hookah pens contain 3 different ingredients. The first ingredient is called Propylene Glycol (Food Grade). This ingredient can be found in different types of food that you currently eat. The higher the percentage of Propylene Glycol in your hookah pen, the stronger the flavor. With an increase in flavor, comes a decrease in something else. A higher percentage of Propylene Glycol will decrease the thickness of the smoke. So if you prefer to smoke because of the flavor, I recommend you purchase one with a higher percentage of Propylene Glycol.

Propylene Glycol (Noun) – Propylene glycol is a clear, colorless, slightly syrupy liquid at room temperature. It may exist in air in the vapor form, although propylene glycol must be heated or briskly shaken to produce a vapor.

The second ingredient is called Vegetable Glycerin (USP Grade). This ingredient is also found in different foods that you currently eat, especially baked goods. The higher the percentage of Vegetable Glycerin in your hookah pen, the thicker the smoke. It’s effects are basically the exact opposite of Propylene Glycol. While the smoke will be thicker, the strength of the flavor will be decreased. A 100% Vegetable Glycerin hookah pen is good for doing smoke tricks.

Vegetable Glycerin (Noun) – Vegetable glycerin, or glycerol, is a clear, odorless liquid produced from plant oils, typically palm oil, soy, or coconut oil.

The third ingredient is an artificial flavoring. This is what gives you the flavor that you are tasting.

How Much Does A Hookah Pen Cost?

In my opinion, they are very affordable. A disposable hookah pen may be purchased for as low as $5. I wouldn’t recommend purchasing one for that low price due to low pricing often equaling low quality. I’ve seen rechargeable hookah pens being sold for as low as $10. Once again the same “low price, low quality” principle applies here. I’ve even seen some hookah pens sell for hundreds of dollars. My best advice here is to look for customer reviews and go with that gut feeling.

How Long Does A Hookah Pen Last?

The length of a hookah pen is measured by the number of puffs or the battery life. For disposable hookah pens, the estimated number of puffs is the most accurate way to describe its lifespan. Most range from 200 puffs up to 1000 puffs. Rechargeable hookah pens are measured by battery life. Due to it being rechargeable and if it’s properly taken care of, it can last for much longer than you probably need it to. Most measure it by the amount of constant use that you can get out of it before it dies. Once again, this varies by brand.

How Does A Hookah Pen Taste?

The taste depends on the brand, but the taste can be very strong and flavorful. It’s an artificial flavoring so you can relate it to other food items which use the same type of flavoring. Most of the time, in my opinion, the taste is similar to the Now-and-Later fruit flavored taffy-like candy but in vapor form. The amount of flavors available are limitless. I have seen the flavors get as crazy as vitamin D. Does anyone really know what vitamin d taste like? My point exactly.

Where Can A Hookah Pen Be Smoked?

Regulations around hookah pens are scattered and this topic varies a lot. You can smoke them at any place that cigarettes are allowed. Some places that do not allow cigarette smoke will allow hookah pens but it is probably not advertised. The best way to learn if you can smoke on a private location would be to ask the owner or person in charge. Sometimes by speaking to the owner or head person in charge, the rules may get bent specifically for you.
