The best way to Enjoy Dokha: choosing your Medwakh pipe

There are a lot of good reasons to enjoy Dokha.  It’s an organic and natural tobacco, which provides an enjoyable buzz and is available in a wide range of blends through Enjoy Dokha.  There is more to smoking Dokha – smoking Dokha is taking part in a tradition with its roots in the history of the Middle East. The farming of Dokha goes back centuries and the knowledge of growing these unique tobacco leaves is passed down from generation to generation. You can’t smoke Dokha without thinking about what you will smoke it in, hence, the Medwakh pipe comes into its own.  Originally, Shepherds who tended their flock on the mountain side, fashioned a pipe to smoke Dokha from pieces of animal bone, or from a variety of woods available locally.  Today, however, there are lots of different materials in use in the manufacture of Medwakh pipes, although wood remains the most popular.  Various metals are also used for strength and durability.  Decorative designs are sometimes carved into the stem of the pipe and even precious stones added as a status symbol!

What is a Medwakh?

Compared to a typical Western pipe, the Medwakh has a smaller bowl and a straighter stem. This reduced bowl size makes sense for smoking Dokha, which is stronger and more intense than most Western tobacco. If you’re used to smoking Western tobacco, you can expect to smoke far less per session when switching to Dokha, saving your time and your money…

What to look for

If you want to smoke Dokha authentically and enjoy it as intended, a Medwakh is quite simply the best and only way to do this. Happily, a good-quality Medwakh doesn’t need to be expensive: Enjoy Dokha’s range includes some low-cost options which are perfectly serviceable, as well as some more luxurious pieces. Here are some of the things to consider when choosing your Medwakh (Midwakh) pipe:

Medwakhs don’t need to be or look expensive, and there are quality Medwakhs available at every point on the price scale. One area price might make a difference is the appearance of your Medwakh; but even then, the cheaper models can still look great. Expect elegantly-curved and simply-finished wood for the lower-priced Medwakhs, with more expensive materials like aluminium or even deer horn being used for the more luxurious pipes. Medwakhs are famed for their beauty and aesthetic appeal, so don’t settle for something that looks less than elegant.

Medwakhs are practically defined by their ease of use, especially when compared to a Western pipe. The small bowl size and straight stem means that filling your Medwakh is as simple as dipping it in your Dokha bottle and tamping the bowl down with a finger. From there, you’re good to go: enjoy your Dokha buzz!

When all’s said and done, if you’re buying a Medwakh for yourself it needs to be something you like the look of and will enjoy using. If buying from a trusted dealer like Enjoy Dokha you can be confident in the quality of whatever you order; so think about what you’d like most before committing to your decision.  Enjoy Dokha sell online all over the world to meet your needs.
