Hookah Tobacco

Wow, has the hookah industry changed in the last 10 years. There used to be roughly 10 staple flavors you could get. Now there is basically anything and everything that you can imagine. Everything from strawberry margarita to pumpkin pie are showing up on the market today. You can also find tobacco companies that are making their hookah tobacco in a number of different ways. Most companies are using a washed tobacco while other companies are using an unwashed tobacco. What's the difference? Well, how buzzed do you want to get when you smoke your hookah. The washed tobacco is "duh" washed and when it is washed it loses all of it's tar and the majority of its nicotine. The unwashed tobacco retains all the tar and nicotine and since a hookah burns at a lower temperature, a LOT more smoke is brought into the lungs. Hence, some people can even get really sick if they aren't used to nicotine. Lets not forget the herbal (non-tobacco) brands that are out there. Some companies have risen up to the demand for people that don't want to get addicted to nicotine, but still want get pleasure out of the flavors and smoking experience. Check out for all of your flavored tobacco needs.
