What The Heck Is Happening With The Hookah Tobacco

Hookahs uses a very unique type of tobacco that is not found in any other cigarettes brands. It is, traditionally, a damp blend--called tobamel or maassel--of fresh tobacco leaves with molasses or honey and semi-dried fruit or fruit pulp. Some smokers put in a little bit of fruit juice or rose oil for added flavoring.
Later, hookah tobacco was also mixed with fruit extracts, and in the 1980s tobacconists began experimenting with various flavors, so that now a virtual smorgasbord of highly aromatic hookah tobacco is widely available. Though a few smokers opt to stick to the strong Turkish tobacco, many people always go for those flavored tobaccos, also called Shisha. The mixtures of flavored tobaccos are actually derived from some f the following items: watermelon, jasmine, honey, apple-mint, cherry, and apricot.
The price for each special pack generally range from $4 to $17 while assorted packs is priced at around $30. The price in most lounges for a bowl of hookah tobacco ranges from $4 to $9 for slower burning leaf or custom blends. As hookah tobacco has high moisture content, it is smoke using hookah charcoal.
Instead of being directly lit, hookah tobacco is heated with a coal placed wire mesh to dry the moisture.
Each bowl of this wet tobacco lasts a long time, usually requiring several replenishments of the charcoal. This drying process was also observed by ancient hookah smokers.
Normally, hookah products are composed mainly of 70 percent fruit flavored molasses and the drying methods used to damp the product. Most hookah do not contain any tar at all with just a little bit of nicotine.
The carcinogenic tendency of hookah is addressed by the fact that it does not employ any direct lighting. Researches revealed bigger chances of people who smoke hookah to contract smoking problems.
Although considered as ultra light and mild, hookah tobacco still poses heart risk among people.

If you really don't know me by now, I'm Jay and I really prefer shisha tobacco because it is excellent.  Check out some the day after tomorrow.
