A midwakh is a little pipe of Arabian source, in which dacha, an Iranian tobacco varied with foliage, woof and herbs, is smoked.
These are first and leading found in the joint Arab Emirates and are fairly well-liked, particularly in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain. The creative plan of the shaft, as well as the dimension of the bowl, varies from pipe to pipe. The bowl of a midweek pipe is characteristically lesser than the bowl of a customary tobacco pipe, which lend to the midwakh's intrinsic protection of smoking combination. It is typically laden by plummeting the bowl into an urn of dokha, which, when smoked foliage the smoker in a dizzy condition for a short epoch of time (this is also known as a "buzz"). An inferior advantage of the midwakh, is that it frequently satisfies the nicotine cravings of the smoker, while overriding a comparatively little measure of tobacco.
The midwakh is fairly ordinary in the UAE, where it was usually smoked by sailors. The late Sheikh Zayed was also recognized to smoke midwakh.
Smoking midweek may be apparent to be healthier than smoking cigarettes, as it does not need burning paper and permit servings of as little as 25 mg. of dokha (compared with 700 mg. net weight of tobacco in a characteristic profitable cigarette), on fire at a far inferior hotness. One dish up of dokha of up to 3-6 puffs is supposed to please the nicotine longing. Since the UAE approved smoking limits in September, 2007, Midwakh has risen in fame, particularly among the younger generations, as it is cheaper than cigarettes and fewer worrying for the smoker's staff, because it eliminates the irritation of side-stream smoke.
