What does “Hookah” mean?

A device used for slow, gentle smoking of flavored tobacco and cannabis. The hookah has a lot of history and cultural significance to the peoples of South Asia and the Middle East, and in the 1970s, hookah bars and lounges began popping up in the United States as a place for people to gather and smoke together. Some hookahs can be multistemmed, allowing for more than one person to draw smoke from it at once, but it's also common for people to simply pass the pipe around.

Example usage:

“Hookah hits are a great way to honor ancient smoking tradition with your friends.”
