What Are Hookah Gems™?

Absolute Fusion Hookah Gems™ are a revolutionary tobacco-free shisha alternative making Hookah safer, and more enjoyable than ever before. Featuring unique flavors from around the world and exotic combinations, we are confident that you will find a flavor to suit your tastes. Hookah Gems™ work just like any other shisha, simply load your funnel bowl with Hookah Gems™, apply coals and enjoy. Because our product uses pure glass, natural ingredients and heat to release steam you can trust Hookah Gems™ to always produce the coolest, cleanest, most flavorful clouds of hookah “smoke” that you will ever experience. Gone are the days of smoking harsh, bland and burnt tobacco shisha, so forget smoking and start steaming today with Absolute Fusion Hookah Gems™!

TOBACCO AND NICOTINE FREE:

  • Hookah Gems™ are 100% tobacco and nicotine free. We have eliminated the need for tobacco filler in shisha by replacing it with premium glass Gems. Our proprietary Steam Solution™ mixed with our Gems is made with natural food grade ingredients. This allows us to omit the nicotine and tobacco -- eliminating most health risks that come with smoking traditional shisha. When you steam our product, you can be confident that you are getting the healthiest puffs possible.

EXTENDED SMOKE TIMES:

  • We are proud to say that with Hookah Gems™ you can more than double the length of your hookah session. While tobacco shisha may smoke up to 30-45 minutes, switching to Hookah Gems™ allows you to steam over 2x longer on the same bowl. No more changing multiple messy bowls during the middle of a party or hookah session; relax knowing that our Hookah Gems™ will provide you with thick clouds until you and your friends are finished steaming.

NEVER HARSH:

  • Hookah Gems™ are manufactured from premium glass and can never burn. These glass Gems are then mixed with our Steam Solution™ which is made with only the purest and highest quality flavorings available. There are absolutely no sugars, dyes, or perfumes added in our flavoring process. This makes the steam smooth and extremely flavorful. Do not worry about waking up tomorrow morning with a sore throat from harsh shisha; our steam is cool and refreshing. Add as many coals as you see fit and you will not receive any throat bite.

STEAMS COOLER, CLEANER, AND THICKER THAN TOBACCO SHISHA

  • Unlike traditional tobacco shisha, which smokes good for half hour then loses flavor and thickness, Hookah Gems™ will smoke cool, clean, and thick for hours longer. The steam solution and our revolutionary Gem shape make this possible. Heat retention and increased airflow allow our steam to be like nothing you’ve experienced before. When it comes to flavor, thickness, and cleanliness, Absolute Fusion Hookah Gems™ exceed all others.

100% REUSABLE:

  • Hookah Gems™, unlike any other hookah product on the market, have the ability to be reused. The premium glass construction allows you to wash them off after a session and use our refill kits* to revive the Gems for more steaming. This allows users to mix flavors down to the drop.

*We plan to offer refill kits of our Steam Solution™ within 60 days of the end of our campaign.


CUSTOMIZABLE FLAVORING:

  • The size and consistency of our Hookah Gems™ allow you to experiment with flavors like never before. Mixing flavors with precision gives users the ability to create thousands of unique flavor combinations. Each of which is easily repeatable from one session to the next.

Who Are We?

We are Josh and Hunter, two college students trying to live out our dreams. From early ages, we have both been engaged in various entrepreneurial ventures; starting clothing, media, and various product businesses. Recently, we were both featured on Business Insider as two of the top 20 under 20 in the world of finance. Among other things we share a great passion for hookah and the sense of community it brings to both friends and strangers.

We love hookah and how it enables friends to relax and enjoy each others company and conversation. But we noticed that not all of our friends were willing to try traditional hookah, mainly due to the fact that they didn’t want to smoke tobacco. This was our main motivation behind the creation of Hookah Gems™. To reinvent hookah and provide a tobacco free alternative that everyone can enjoy.

Risks and Challenges

We have already spent countless hours perfecting and testing our design. From experimenting with different materials and shapes to formulating our solutions for maximum flavor intensity and cloud output, we've tried it all. We want to make Hookah Gems™ the highest quality hookah product on the market. Unfortunately, that does not come easy. As with any start-up we have some challenges to bring this product to you in it's finest form possible. Your backing will allow us to optimize manufacturing, open up distribution, and finalize R&D.

Our plan of action is well thought out and we are ready to implement every aspect, from raw material acquisition to delivery. Fulfillment of your donor incentives in a timely manner will be our first priority.

Our future goals include developing new and tantalizing flavors that have never been used in hookah before. We plan to bring Hookah Gems™ to stores and hookah lounges around the world so that everyone will be able to enjoy Hookah Gems™ as much as we do.
