A hookah is a water pipe that is used to smoke flavored and sweetened tobacco. The hookah pipe houses separate chambers for the tobacco and water, and has one or more flexible tubing stems from which consumers inhale the tobacco smoke. Typical flavoring for Hookah tobacco is molasses, fruit pulp or honey and has had additional flavor added, such as coconut, fruit flavors, mint or coffee. The sweetness that flavorings add to the taste and aroma of hookah tobacco, is one of the many things that make it more appealing, especially to young people. Hookah is also referred to as narghile, argileh, shisha, hubble-bubble, shisha or goza.
The tobacco compartment in a hookah consists of a bowl that contains burning charcoal on top of the flavored tobacco. The charcoal is separated from the tobacco by perforated aluminum foil. The charcoal heats the tobacco below, creating smoke. When users draw on the stem of the hookah, the tobacco smoke is pulled through the water chamber, where it is cooled before being inhaled.
Historically, Hookah pipes have been in use for about 400 years, originating in India and Asia. A physician from India, Hakim Abdul Fath, invented the hookah in the early 1600s. He believed the health hazards of tobacco smoke would be minimized by passing it through water before inhalation. By the 1990s, flavored tobacco became popular in the Eastern Mediterranean countries, and hookah use grew out of that, spreading around the world. Today, smoking hookah is a popular pastime for young people in the United States, with hookah lounges popping up in big cities and around college campuses across the country.
