Tobacco College: Evolution of Cigar Smoking

 
METHODS OF USING TOBACCO:

Methods of smoking and using tobacco evolved as a by-product of cultures and geographic areas which produced differing tobaccos.

  • Some indigenous Americans smoked “cohiba” (grasses) from “Y” shaped tubes inserted into their noses.

  • 1500s: France, England, and Holland begin using snuff and smoking tobacco in pipes.
    • Their colonies in Africa, Asia and North America produced tobacco that was best suited for pipes, and snuff.
    • Snuff is ground up tobacco that is snorted through the nose [and in recent times it is applied orally].
      • Was the most popular form of tobacco used in Europe until the 1800s.
      • 1900s emergence of oral snuff (a.k.a.: chew or dip).


  • 1500s: Spanish culture took to smoking tobacco wrapped in leaves, like the indigenous people they learned from [in lands Spain colonized].

  • 1600s: In 1676 factories in Sevilla, Spain create the cigar as we know it today: characterized by the use of wrapper, binder, and filler leaves.
