The hookah has its origin in Asian countries like India or Pakistan

Today the hookah or shisha has spread strongly throughout the different countries of Europe and America. However, its origin is linked to the area where countries like India or Pakistan are now located. Here it was used a different artifact than the one we now know that has been redesigned as a consequence of years and years of evolution. The use of the hookah has always been very popular and used to be made with coconuts or other very rudimentary materials. Later, it was taken to Persia where it began its evolution. About 500 years ago it reached Turkey where it became very popular among the upper class and intellectuals. It was then that it continued its refinement until the modern hookah as we know it today. The hookah was initially used for the consumption of opium and hashish and later became standardized for the use of tobacco without any flavor or additives. As its popularity spread, other types of additives began to be added. They used to add honey or sugar to sweeten the tobacco. Over the years, flavored tobaccos were invented and the most common were apple, pear, grape and lemon flavors. The undoubted success of hookahs and this way of smoking is due to the social nature of their use. The hookah has always been a communal way of consuming tobacco or cannabis at parties or gatherings since it was popularized in ancient Turkey until today. Today the use of the hookah has become popular all over the world. We love it and in Cogolandia you can find different hookahs to enjoy alone or with company
