Dokha is usually supplied in a variety of plastic bottles and containers to which are sold at various prices depending on the quality of the Dokha tobacco.
The Dokha is smoked in an wooden Arabic pipe type which is called a midwakh. Most modern midwakh’s have a filter tip however the traditional pipes did not have a filter.
