Hubbly or hookah lounges have become popular in recent years, and often have a trendy atmosphere. This can make hubbly smoking seem more appealing to people who are interested in fashion and social status.

CANSA states that according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), contrary to the popular belief that the smoke of a water pipe has little or no side effects and is less harmful than cigarette smoking, the smoke that emerges from a water pipe contains several toxins known to cause lung cancer, heart disease and other diseases.

Professional doctor shares his knowledge on smoking hubbly

According to Homeopathic Medical doctor, Dr Gumbi, who spoke to Briefly News, smoking hubbly or flavoured tobacco through water pipes produces smoke containing toxic compounds, including carbon monoxide and heavy metals.

"There is a cascade of actions that happen when a person inhales toxins or smokes. It can lead to respiratory issues and health risks similar to cigarettes.
"E-cigarettes (vapes) heat a liquid containing nicotine, flavourings, and other harmful substances, forming an aerosol. Vaping may still impact lung health and could be a potential gateway to traditional smoking, particularly for young users.
"Recent studies have indicated that hubbly bubbly or vapours are less harmful but it doesn't necessarily mean safe and people misunderstand that," Gumbi said.

Social media users react with laughter and jokes online

Video of gorgeous sangoma jiving while making a hubbly has the people of Mzansi questioning everything

In another story, Briefly News reported that getting the calling is seen as a special gift in African culture. So, when people saw a sangoma lighting up a hubby and grooving in her sacred space, it threw them off just a little.

Being a sangoma comes with a lot of responsibility. Being able to guide people through ancestors is respected highly, and so many people look up to you as an example.

Twitter user @ronaldanele shared a clip of a beautiful young sangoma living her best life. Dressed in her traditional healer clothing and sitting in her sacred space, the babe lit up a hubbly while she jived to some vibey tracks. Not your average sangoma, for sure!
