Pros and Cons of hookah pens

So you’re interested in the pros and cons of hookah pens. I’m going to assume you already know what’s hookah pen and go straight into the pros and cons. There are many different brands of hookah pens. Some of which are better than others (of course), so the pros and cons may vary when using brands other than Everyday Hookah. This post should help some of you that are deciding if a hookah pen is right for your lifestyle.


So lets jump into the pros:


Pros Of Smoking A Hookah Pen


  • Portable – A big pro of a hookah pen is that it is very easy to travel with. A hookah pen is about the size of a ink pen or cigarette. Thanks to the size, you can carry it in your purse, your pocket, and just about anywhere else you could think of.

An example would be:


(*Ring Ring*)

Me: “Hello”

Female Friend: “Hey, what are you doing?”

Me: “Nothing much, just driving and smoking my hookah.”

Female Friend: “Your smoking hookah while driving!? Be careful!”

Me: “Don’t worry, it’s a hookah pen by Everyday Hookah….they’re made for these type of situations.”

Female Friend: “OMG, you’re so awesome.”


*That’s based on a true story* (Not Really)

  • No Tobacco – The biggest pro of a hookah pen is that it does not contain tobacco. If it did contain tobacco, you might as well smoke a cigarette.


Did you know that by eliminating the consumption of tobacco, you are eliminating over 7,000 deadly chemicals. About 70 of those deadly chemicals can cause cancer. (

  • No Nicotine – You know the chemical that gets people addicted to cigarettes, we don’t have any of that. If you have ever tried cigarettes, hookah pen with nicotine, or regular shisha then you most likely have experienced the “hit” in the back of your throat. That “hit” is also a result of nicotine.


  • Disposable (possibly a con) – In today’s world, we don’t have time for a lot of stuff, charging extra electronics being one of them. We prefer to buy it, open it, and use it. Why should hookah pens be any different? If you don’t mind constantly re-charging your hookah pen then this may not be a pro for you.


This lady clearly understands the fast pace nature of today’s society and might have said it best, “Ain’t nobody got time fo dat”.

Aint nobody got time fo dat

  • No Cleaning – Who likes cleaning? With disposable hookah pens, you no longer spend hours cleaning. You spend more hours smoking.

Ready for the con’s?


Con’s Of Smoking A Hookah Pen


  • Less smoke – One of the few cons of smoking a hookah pen is that you get less smoke than you normally would if you were smoking a traditional hookah.
  • Possibly More Expensive – Depending on what brand of shisha you currently use, smoking a hookah pen could be more expensive. For some, it could be less expensive. I recommend comparing Everyday Hookah’s $7.99 price for up to 600 puffs to your current brand of shisha.

if after reading this post and you’re still unsure if hookah pens are right for you, I say give it a try. One of the best ways to know if something is right for you is to actually try it. At the cost of $7.99, it’s not an expensive test. You never know, you might enjoy it.

  1. Do hookah pens like yours show up on a sports urine drug test?

  2. everything causes cancer.

  3. Even though as you might say there’s no nicotine or tar then why are there risks and slight chances of hookah pens leading to health problems? Having the chemicals overflowing most of the product,don’t many of the pens always contain a slight amount of nicotine such as .5%? (Read lot of news about the hookah pens)

  4. So this hookah pen has no effect on your health? I really want one, but I’m afraid it will damage my lungs.

  5. Not only have we thought about it, we’ve put in place features to prevent what you have written about. The liquid is heated, instead of “charged”. While we have never heard of hookah pen liquid being charged, there may be sellers who do so. You should avoid those sellers. Some hookah pens (like ours) now come with automatic cut-off times to prevent the battery from exploding due to over inhaling. Make sure that you purchase from a hookah pen brand that will automatically cut off the battery 4-8 second after continuous inhaling.

  6. BUT apparently the way that the particles of the vapour are charged, there is a chance that it may cause lung failure. and also if you inhale for too long (and this is an obvious risk) then the lithium battery will explode. thought about it much?

  7. They are still pending FDA approval.

  8. The same age to smoke cigarettes.

  9. How old do you have to buy these? I’m 14 and I want some.

  10. If it is no nicotine…then what is the risk…is the risk the it that the different flavors have some toxic chemical?

  11. Hello. Although there is no nicotine or tobacco in the Hookah Pens can they cause cancer?

  12. Hey Chris,

    Some people choose to smoke our hookah pens like a cigarette, others choose to smoke it like traditional hookah. It is completely OK to inhale this vapor like a cigarette.

  13. Do people usually inhale ehookas all the way into the lungs? I know you aren’t supposed to inhale regular hookahs, but are these hookah pens different? Is it ok to inhale the vapor fully like a cigarette?

  14. Hi,

    There are no addictive chemicals in our hookah pens. No tar, no shisha, no nicotine, etc…

  15. Is there any addictive substances in these pens? Like what’s in it? I know there’s no tar, nicotine, and tobacco, but is there shisha in them, or anything that can possibly get you addicted? And if so, are there pens you can buy without it?

  16. You have to buy the Nicotine separate from the flavors and I’m positive that the flavors don’t include Nicotine. I have one and you always have to use the Nicotine bottle first then you put the flavor In afterwards.

  17. If theres nothing bad in it then how come teens csnt use them im 13 and i want to use one for smoke tricks

  18. Hookah pens aren’t e cigarettes.

  19. I meant what if you use it at the age of 13 or younger

  20. I would like to know why if u use it while your under the age of 18 like around umm 13

  21. I wish i had the money go buy one of these..

  22. Check the CDC and poison control centers calls on e cigarettes. They are not safe.

  23. Hey Manek,

    While none of our hookah pens contain nicotine, there are some brands out there that do contain nicotine. Make sure you check with them to ensure that you will be purchasing from a nicotine free brand.

  24. I recently purchased a pen hookah, it is quite different from the traditional one, but yea if you love smoking a cigarette then it is way better to purchase a pen hookah as it reduces smoking a cigarette.
    The only problem what I face, there are no good strong flavors available to pull.

    My Query: If we are smoking the pen hookah, are you sure the liquid flavor does not include nicotine, as some times the flavor burns in my throat?

  25. Hi Susy, our smoke does not come in different colors at the moment, only white.

  26. I would like to know if the smoke comes in colors matching the flavor or is it just plain white?

  27. Hello Sabrina,

    The government classifies all smoking devices, even those without any harmful chemicals, like cigarettes. Due to this, we must treat them as such and not allow any users under the age of 18 in the USA to use them.

  28. I was just curious, since there’s no tar, nicotine or tobacco, why aren’t teens allowed to smoke it? There aren’t any health issues.

  29. Hey, there is no tar or nicotine in any of our hookah pens.

  30. I wanna try using a hookah pen but what I’m most afraid of is that it’s bad for my health . So I hope someone can tell me there’s really no tar and nicotine in this brand of hookah pens.

  31. We’ve experienced the same problem and it was horrible! If you look on the bright side, you might find a TV remote, some loose coins, and a friendly spider 😉

  32. Con- It will fall into the cracks in a couch

    Be careful!
    Female Friend-“OH NO ahhhhh!”
    Phil-“Ohh nooo noo noo!”
    Female Friend-(swoohing sigh reliefing) (hand swipping of forehead area) “Pfrooooo, that was a close one, it almost fell into the couch!”
    Phil-“Wow that would have been such a heartbreak.” :'(
