Dokha and cigarettes are both tobacco products that are smoked, but they differ in a number of ways.
Firstly, Dokha is a type of tobacco that is typically grown and produced in the Middle East, while cigarettes are typically made from tobacco grown in various parts of the world. The tobacco used in Dokha is generally stronger and more potent than the tobacco used in cigarettes, which can lead to a more intense and immediate nicotine buzz.
Here are some additional points of comparison between Dokha and cigarettes:
- Chemicals: Cigarettes contain a variety of chemicals, including additives and preservatives, which are not found in Dokha. These chemicals can increase the toxicity and carcinogenicity of cigarette smoke. Dokha, on the other hand, is a natural tobacco product that does not contain additives or preservatives.
- Nicotine content: The nicotine content of Dokha can vary widely, but it is generally higher than the nicotine content of cigarettes.
- Smoking behaviour: Dokha is typically smoked in short, intense bursts, while cigarettes are usually smoked more slowly and steadily.
- Second-hand smoke: Both Dokha and cigarettes produce smoke, which can be harmful to the health of others who are exposed to it. However, the amount of second-hand smoke produced by Dokha is generally lower than the amount produced by cigarettes, due to the smaller size and more targeted use of the Medwakh pipe.
