Hookah, also known as shisha, is a water pipe for smoking flavored tobacco. It is disputed on whether the first hookah was invented in India or Persia, dating back to the 1500s. Either way, hookah has been an integral part of the cultures developing around these regions. Smoking hookah is a way to relax with friends and socialize in a comfortable atmosphere.
Unlike cigarettes, shisha can be smoked indoors without leaving an odor. Anyone can smoke hookah, as long they are of legal smoking age because it is still tobacco and contains nicotine. An added benefit of smoking hookah is that it doesn’t stain teeth in the way cigarettes do.
The pipe itself has several components:
- Base, typically made of glass
- Body, or Stem
- Blowout Valve
- Plate, to let the ash fall onto
- Tobacco Bowl, which sits on top of the body
- Charcoal, on top of the bowl
- Wind Guard (optional)
