Introduction• With cigarettes becoming a thing of the past and not socially acceptable anymore the act of shisha smoking has become more and more popular as a social activity. This article explains what is behind the shisha phenomenon.
Recreational• The smoking of shisha pipes is becoming a popular leisure activity for a growing number of people around the world. The origins of shisha can be traced to Egypt and this quickly spread to neighboring countries and it is now popular all over the globe.• It is a very popular thing to attend a parlor and enjoy a pipe with friends while catching up with the latest news and gossip.
A Good Alternative• The sweet smell of the smoke is very appealing to a lot of people and this is a big factor in its rise in popularity. This kind of smoking is regarded as non addictive to be enjoyed as a social activity and a very good alternative to cigarettes and cigars.• People who partake in this activity say that it is very relaxing and helps them get rid of the stresses of the day.
What Is Needed• The special shisha tobacco does not contain the same harmful properties that are found in other tobacco products. The tobacco is smoked through a Hookah pipe and this contains water so that the smoke passes through it which cools down the taste of the smoke to make it more palatable.• When a pipe is loaded up with everything that is required it can produce a smoking experience that can last from thirty minutes up to an hour.
Shisha Pipes• These pipes have changed greatly over the years and they have been adapted in many different countries to suit the local needs of the people.• In the early days they were made by skilled craftsmen and were very decorative and ornamental. These days the pipes are more practical as people are not so worried about their aesthetic appeal.
Flavors• The tobacco is a mix of herbs and other ingredients and normally contains a high degree of molasses. There are numerous shisha flavors on the market today and the fruit flavors really do seem to be the most popular.• Among the favorites are blueberry, mint, strawberry, watermelon and cherry. It is possible to add your own flavoring to the tobacco and there is even a cola flavor available now.
Tobacco• The difference between shisha tobacco and normal tobacco found in cigarettes and cigars is that the conventional tobacco is dry whereas the hookah tobacco is moist which is why it cannot be smoked in the same way. The tobacco is most commonly purchased in 250 gram packs which will provide around 25 bowls or sessions.• There is an art to preparing the hookah pipe correctly and this includes breaking up the tobacco to ensure that it is fairly evenly spread around the bowl and then covering it properly with glass.
Popularity• It is not difficult to see why shisha smoking has become popular worldwide. With the aromatic and relaxing smoking sensation that it provides and the fact that it is a lot more socially acceptable than other forms of smoking have all contributed to its rise in popularity.• There are many online stores now selling the tobacco, pipes and all the other necessary accessories that are required to participate in this activity.
Conclusion• If you want to smoke shisha then you will need a shisha pipe as well as the tobacco and many other accessories and you can find these at our online store.
