Selection of hookah tobacco
Neither crown nor carbon but hookah tobacco is what you smoke. The basic composition is tobacco leaves and molasses, which contains a flavor component, syrup, glycerin and preservatives. The taste component, the type of tobacco and the ratio of components differ among individual manufacturers.
Types of hookah tobacco
Tobacco is produced from Virginia, Burley and Oriental varieties, with Virginia having largest representation. There are alternatives such as nicotine-free stones and valorization gels, but the alpha and omega of smoking remains high-quality light and dark tobacco.
Light tobacco for turnips tastes like stones and gels. It is lighter, as a large amount of nicotine is lost by washing, compared to cigarettes and cigars, it contains a minimum and is not addictive. Light tobaccos created the phenomenon of Arab and Indian coziness around the hookah.
The modern wave of smoking brought dark tobacco to the turnip. They are more reminiscent of the usual addictive smoking, have a greater amount of nicotine and bring a more pronounced taste experience and higher resistance to heat. However, for smoking dark tobacco we recommend at least basic hookah experience.
