Smokeless tobacco: Usually consumed orally or nasally, without burning or combustion. There are two main types of smokeless tobacco: snuff and chewing tobacco

Smoking tobacco: Act of burning dried or cured leaves of the tobacco plant and inhaling the smoke. Combustion releases biochemically active compounds in tobacco, such as nicotine and flavors, and allows them to be absorbed through the lungs

Dry Snuff: Powdered tobacco that is inhaled through the nose and absorbed through the nasal mucosa or taken orally. Once widespread, particularly in Europe, the use of dry snuff is in decline

Chewing tobacco: Oral smokeless tobacco products placed in the mouth, cheek, or inner lip and sucked (dipped) or chewed. Tobacco pastes or powders are similarly used, placed on the gums or teeth. Sometimes referred to as “spit tobacco” because users spit out the built-up tobacco juices and saliva. This mode of tobacco consumption became associated with American baseball players during the twentieth century. There are many varieties of smokeless tobacco, including plug, loose-leaf, chimo, toombak, gutkha, and twist. Pan masala or betel quid consists of tobacco, areca nuts (Areca catechu), slaked lime (calcium hydroxide), sweeteners, and flavoring agents wrapped in a betel leaf (Piper betel). There are endless varieties of pan masala, including kaddipudi, hogesoppu, gundi, kadapam, zarda, pattiwala, kiwam, and mishri

Roll-your-own (RYO): Cigarettes hand-filled by the smoker from fine-cut, loose tobacco rolled in a cigarette paper

Manufactured cigarettes: Consist of shredded or reconstituted tobacco, processed with hundreds of chemicals and rolled into a paper-wrapped cylinder. Usually tipped with a cellulose acetate filter, they are lit at one end and inhaled through the other. Most commonly consumed tobacco products worldwide. The invention of the cigarette-rolling machine in 1881 accelerated the adoption of cigarettes by mass-producing pocket-sized packets of cigarettes. Unlike tediously hand-rolled cigarettes and bulky water pipes, manufactured cigarettes offered a convenient and portable method of consumption

Cigars: Made of air-cured and fermented tobaccos with a tobacco-leaf wrapper. Cigars come in many shapes and sizes, from cigarette-sized cigarillos to double coronas, cheroots, stumpen, chuttas, and dhumtis

Bidis: Consists of a small amount of sun-dried, flaked tobacco handwrapped in dried temburni or tendu leaf and tied with string. Bidis are found throughout South Asia and are the most heavily consumed smoked tobacco products in India

Kreteks: Clove-flavored cigarettes widely smoked in Indonesia. They may contain a wide range of exotic flavorings and eugenol

Water Pipes: Water pipes, also known as shisha, hookah, narghile, or hubble-bubble, operate by water filtration and indirect heat. Flavored tobacco is burned in a smoking bowl covered with foil and coal. The smoke is cooled by filtration through a basin of water and consumed through a hose and mouthpiece

Pipes: Made of briar, slate, clay, or other substances. Tobacco is placed in the bowl, and the smoke is inhaled through the stem. In Southeast Asia, clay pipes known as sulpa, chillum, and hookli are widely used

Moist snuff: A small amount of ground tobacco held in the mouth between the cheek and gum. Increasingly pre-packaged into small paper or cloth packets as a more convenient product offer. Other moist snuff products are known as khaini, snus, shammaah, nass, or naswa
