This guide will tell you everything you need to take into consideration when buying a hookah in addition to our previous posts about this subject.

There are many factors to take into consideration including the origin of the hookah, materials, height, multiple hose options, and price. The shop you are going to purchase your hookah from.

Origin of the Hookah

Modern hookahs are typically manufactured in China by companies based in the United States and elsewhere. Traditional hookahs come from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Iran and other countries in the Middle East and along the Mediterranean. Modern hookahs are made on assembly lines with modern manufacturing techniques while most traditional hookahs are made by hand. Distinguishing a modern hookah from a traditional hookah is fairly easy to do. The distinguishable factors include construction, styling, and performance.

In general, modern hookahs are constructed with lighter weight material and no visible weld lines. They are commonly composed of threaded components that are screwed together, which can also be easily unscrewed to fit into carrying cases. Some of the higher end modern hookahs have better finish work than traditional hookahs, because they mix chromium into the final plating stage.

Traditional hookahs are generally larger and constructed with heavier metals. They also tend to use combinations of metals, such as stainless steel with copper and brass. Modern hookahs typically use mostly stainless steel and may mix in other elements for the finish. The best traditional hookahs use brass around critical points, such as the hose port and check valve. The major advantages of using brass in these points comes from the brazing process in which the brass combines with the steel. The brazing process adds a lot of strength to these weld points. The weld points are usually highly visible on traditional hookahs and some hookah buyers are surprised or disappointed to see a new hookah that appears so unfinished. However, other hookah buyers love this aspect to traditional hookahs; they feel like they own a unique hand-made antiquity.

 Some modern hookahs have come out with improved designs. One of the innovations is an improved check valve system on multiple hose models. These check release valves are designed with ball bearings inside them. The result is a multiple hose hookah that can be smoked without the need to plug every hose that is not in use, a cumbersome issue with traditional hookahs and some modern hookahs still today. Many modern hookahs are screwed on at the vase. This makes it easy to pop your stem off to refill the vase with water and back on with an air-tight seal. The only drawback is that the metal threaded fittings can come off easily if they were applied to the glass with an inexpensive glue. However, this is not usually a problem with higher end modern hookahs.

The head or bowl on modern hookahs is generally made with ceramic rather than the clay that is used for traditional hookah bowls. The difference is that ceramic doesn’t conduct heat as well, resulting in a lower quality smoking experience. Even distribution of heat means less burning of tobacco and less rearranging of coals. It also lengthens the duration of the smoking session, since the flavor doesn’t get diminished by harsh smoke.

Modern hookahs encompass a range of products including animal hookahs, hookahs that have ceramic sculptures on them, inlaid cloisonne designs, and plain stainless steel models. Whatever the style might be, modern hookahs tend to have more current or futuristic designs on the stem and vase.

 As the name implies, traditional hookahs appear more traditional. They have lines that suggest hundreds of years of history. Traditional hookahs do differ a bit from region to region and it is difficult to make all-inclusive remarks about their makeup. Whatever the region may be, there will most likely be patterns or designs unique to the history of that region incorporated into the design of the hookah.

Traditional hookah manufacturers have been honing their designs for many generations. In terms of performance, traditional hookahs tend to smoke better than modern hookahs. There are many exceptions, but traditional hookahs typically use one central tube that runs the full length of the stem. The hose and purge valve line are typically one tube as well. The tubing used in traditional hookahs tend to be wider gauge than what is used on modern hookahs. The result of this manufacturing means less restriction and easier smoke draw.

Materials

Some hookah connoisseurs argue that solid brass pipes are the best. They are the heaviest, most solid pipes, and last forever. While they do oxidize, they never corrode. The problem with brass pipes is that they require polishing on a regular basis to maintain their luster and shine. Other people prefer combinations of stainless steel with brass or copper. There are issues with stainless steel though. For one, there are few manufacturers out there that use good quality stainless steel such as Aladdin and Mya Hookah, Usually, a low quality stainless steel is used then electroplated only on the exterior with nickel. The inside remains vulnerable to corrosion and rusting. Even highly regarded manufacturers produce hookahs in this way. Modern hookah manufacturers tend to be more thorough; most electroplate the interior and exterior.

Height

 

Choosing the right height for a hookah is for the most part a matter of preference. Experienced hookah smokers gravitate toward hookahs between 28 inches and 32 inches. This range of height is the happy medium of performance and ease of handling. However, someone that intends to camp or travel a lot might prefer a smaller hookah. Conversely, someone who intends to smoke on his outdoor patio, may want a really tall hookah that can be placed on the floor next to a high table.

 Height does play some role in performance. A larger vase and stem will hold more smoke and produce more smoke upon inhaling. This doesn’t mean that small hookahs don’t smoke well. There are plenty of small hookahs that smoke extremely well which found at Pars Market and our Hookah prices start at only $16.99

 Multiple Hose Options

 Don’t those four hose hookahs look amazing? They look like they would be perfect for a party. Despite the looks, multiple hose hookahs are not all they’re cracked up to be. The more hoses, the more the performance goes down and the more cumbersome the hookah is to smoke. The reason they are so unmanageable is because every person that has a hose in hand has to plug their tip when they’re not smoking. If one hose tip isn’t plugged, the person who is smoking can’t get enough suction to pull out the smoke.

Luckily, the multiple hose woes can be overcome. Most traditional multiple hose hookahs do come with rubber stoppers, which make it easy to convert back down to a one hose which available and sold at Pars Market for any size Hookah you may have. You can also opt for a modern hookah with a built in check valve system which comes as standard option in Hookahs at Pars Market, which is much more manageable. Furthermore, there is no denying the appeal of pulling out a two, three, or four hose hookah when entertaining big groups. They do bring excitement to the party, Family and Friends.

Price

The old adage, “You get what you pay for”, is even true for the hookah industry. If you are buying a hookah in the U.S. that is under $30, chances are it’s going to be pretty junky. If you spend over $100 on a hookah, chances are you’re going to get something descent that will last you. That being said, many traditional style hookahs can be pretty pricey and fall short of expectations, which is mostly due to the visible weld lines and imperfect finishing work.

Popular name brand hookahs will always be 10 – 15% more than equally good hookahs that have no name recognition. Generally, this price hike is worth it to get a hookah you can be sure you’ll be happy with.

An Article about Benefits of Electronic Cigarettes and more at Pars Shisha and Hookah Market in Columbia Maryland 21045

Benefits of Electronic Cigarettes

 

 

A new study published in the medical journal Lancet has found
electronic cigarettes may be as effective as nicotine patches
in helping people quit smoking.

 

“E-cigarettes, with or without nicotine, were modestly effective at
helping smokers to quit, with similar achievement of abstinence as
with nicotine patches, and few adverse events,” the study found.

The study was conducted in Auckland, New Zealand, between September
2011 and July 2013 by researchers from the University of Auckland, New
Zealand health agencies and Queen Mary University of London.

  The researchers randomly tested 657 smokers. They then tested how many
people had abstained from smoking after six months. The rates were 7.3 %
with nicotine e-cigarettes, 5.8 % with patches, and 4.1% with placebo e-cigarettes.

This “suggests such short-term e-cigarette use is of low risk. However,
longer-term use requires more research,” the authors said.

If you haven’t tried electronic cigarettes, we encourage you to give them a
try to see if they can improve your smoking experience. 

Benefits of going smokeless:

  •  New models can last up to 20x longer  than traditional e-cigs.
  •  No more ash, or offensive odors on your clothing and hair. 
  •  Save thousands per year vs. traditional tobacco. Smoke anywhere. 

 

@ Pars Market E-cigarettes range from 4mg-24mg.

10mg-24mg lasts up to 600 puffs

4mg not as much

Also, Some come in different flavors and rechargeable.

Hookah Tricks And Tips

1.Change the water in the vase every smoking session. The water is the filter for the smoke.

2.Use cold water to fill the vase and add ice cubes to the water.

3.Don’t place charcoal right on the shisha bowl, use aluminum foil or a metal charcoal screen so it can save the tobacco burning time.

4.Make sure you place the foil tightly over the hookah bowl.

5.Add Juice to the water for a fruiter flavor.

6.Clean your Hookah frequently with cleaning brush and cold water.

7.Mix different flavors together for a unique flavor.

8.If smoke gets too ashy or harsh, remove the charcoal and remove the bowl. Then,  blow into the back of the bowl. Tons of smoke should come out. Put the bowl back and either put the same charcoal on it or put a new one.

9.When you start smoking, you can either place the charcoal in the center or on the outside of the bowl depending on your bowl side. Large bowls, you can place the charcoal in the middle. Smaller bowls, place the charcoal on the outside corners of the bowl.

10.Use tongs or tweezers for your charcoals, so you wont burn yourself.

  

 Shisha, Hookah, Nargila, Hubby Bubbly are a few names of ancient water pipes. Shisha pipes have been used for centuries in the Middle East to smoke the away the stresses of the day, relaxing in the conversation and company of family and friends.

The Wonder of The Hookah

A Hookah is a water pipe that is used mainly by Middle Eastern countries for smoking tobacco, mainly flavored tobacco, such as Shisha. Traditional hookahs are elaborately decorated with gold or brass and often sport ornate carvings and designs. They are traditionally made from glass but can also be made from plastic or even. They have a long stem with a large Bowl at the top where the tobacco is placed.

From the stem are several long hoses that enable several people to enjoy the hookah at once. Water is placed in the stem and, when the bowl of tobacco is lit, the smoke is then filtered through the water and into the lungs of each person inhaling from each hose.

The practice of using hookahs is very popular in countries like Iran and other Arab countries but it is also popular in European countries, as well, and even the United States.

How Does a Hookah Work?

The hookah is set up in the configuration shown to the right. The vase is filled with water to submerge the down stem. The bowl is then covered with a perforated foil sheet or metal screen. The hot coals are placed on top of the foil sheet or metal screen, which causes the tobacco in the bowl to heat up and smoke. Sucking through the hose draws more heat on the tobacco and helps accelerate the heat transfer.

By sucking on the hose, the smoke is drawn down through the down stem and underwater. The smoke then rises up above the water in the vase and into the hose port opening. The hose port opening connects directly to the hose port and does not connect to any part of the main stem or down stem. The smoke continues its path through the hose port and hose until it reaches the smoker’s mouth.

The release valve is not a necessary component for the Hookah to function. However, it is useful. It is used for clearing out stagnate smoke. By blowing into the hose, smoke is pushed back into the vase and through the release valve port opening up to the release valve. The air pushing up through the release valve causes a metal ball bearing to rise up, which allows the smoke to be released. The ball bearing is in the check valve to keep the hookah air tight when smoke is being inhaled.
