The Benefits of Smoking Cigars
A cigar is a handmade product consisting of dried and fermented tobacco leaves, wrapped in tobacco. Cigars are popular with smokers who are looking for a more enjoyable smoking experience than that of cigarettes.
Some people choose to smoke cigars because of its taste and aroma; others do so to celebrate a special occasion or simply to relax. Whatever the reason, cigars provide many health benefits that make them a great choice for any smoker.
Smoking cigars can help in weight loss by suppressing the appetite. It is thought that the nicotine in cigar smoke acts as a stimulant and appetite suppressant. It also makes food less palatable for some, further curbing the appetite.
The nicotine content in cigars is higher than that of cigarettes and an average cigar has around 100mg of nicotine compared to a cigarette which contains about 10mg of nicotine.
Cigars are generally more expensive than cigarettes.
A typical cigar can cost anywhere from $1 to $40 per cigar, whereas a pack of cigarettes will typically be under $5.
Cigars can be made with a variety of different blends of tobacco and vary in size and shape. Larger cigars are often longer than smaller cigars, containing more tobacco.
Most large cigars can take one to two hours to smoke.
The nicotine in cigars is not as addictive as that in cigarettes, although it can cause addiction in some cases.
Some cigars have a higher level of nicotine than others, and some are higher in flavor and aroma than others. There are also a number of differences in the wrapper and the binders used to hold the tobacco together.
