STATEMENT AS TO RIGHTS TO INVENTIONS MADE UNDER FEDERALLY-SPONSORED RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

[0002] Not Applicable

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] 1. Field of the Invention

[0004] The present invention is an additive for tobacco intended for use in smoking artifacts such as, but not restricted to, cigars, cigarettes, pipes and hookahs.

[0005] 2. Background Information

[0006] A dictionary definition for a cigar, used for purposes of definition in this application is: “a more or less cylindrical roll of tobacco cured for smoking, of any of various lengths, thicknesses, degrees of straightness, usually wrapped in a tobacco leaf”.

[0007] A dictionary definition of a cigarette, used for purposes of definition in this application is: “a cylindrical roll of finely cut tobacco cured for smoking, considerably smaller than most cigars and usually wrapped in thin white paper”.

[0008] A dictionary definition of a pipe, used for purposes of definition in this application is: “a tube of wood, clay, rubber, or other material, with a small bowl at one end, used for smoking tobacco”.

[0009] A dictionary definition of a hookah, used for purposes of definition in this application is: “a tobacco pipe with a long, flexible tube by which the smoke is drawn through a jar of water and thus cooled”.

[0010] A dictionary lists aloeswood as agalloch. Agalloch is listed as the fragrant resinous wood of an East Indian thymelaeaceous tree, Aquilaria Agallocha, used as incense in the Orient. Also called agallachum, agalwood, agilawood, aloes, aloeswood, eaglewood, lignaloes.

[0011] As a natural grown herb, which is a tiny seed, can be grown abundantly in warm climate or mild climate. It has a medicinal value to to its chemistry. It is helpful, when used to relieve discomfort of stomach and chest, by itself or mixed with turmeric powder, which is a herb root.

[0012] Health hazards of smoking tobacco are well documented.

[0013] Many smokers seem addicted and unable to quit smoking tobacco.

[0014] As will be seen in the subsequent disclosure, the preferred embodiment of the present invention overcomes the deficiencies of existing art.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0015] The present invention is the use of aloeswood seeds as a tobacco additive to reduce the hazards of smoking. As aloeswood seeds are tiny, they can be used either whole or as crushed into a powder. The aloeswood seeds, crushed or whole, can be mixed in with the tobacco. Mixture proportions could vary according to manufacturing and marketing considerations, such as, but not restricted to, taste preferences. An alternate embodiment would be to have the aloeswood seeds as a compartmented section in a smoking artifact such as, but not restricted to a cigar, cigarette, pipe or hookah, said section serving as a filter for tobacco smoke.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

[0016] Applicant believes a drawing is not required for illustration of this invention.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

[0017] The preferred embodiment of the present invention is an addition of aloeswood seeds to tobacco for use in smoking artifacts such as, but not restricted to cigars, cigarettes, pipes, and hookahs, for the purpose of alleviating and relieving adverse effects from smoking tobacco.

[0018] The aloeswood seeds may be added to the tobacco either as whole seeds or as a powder from crushed seeds.

[0019] An alternate embodiment of the present invention would be to have the aloeswood seeds as a compartmented section in a smoking artifact such as, but not restricted to a cigar, cigarette, pipe, or hookah, said section serving as a filter for tobacco smoke.

[0020] Although the description above contains many specificities, these should not be construed as limiting the scope of the invention but as merely providing illustrations of some of the presently preferred embodiments of this invention.

[0021] It will be obvious to those skilled in the art that modifications may be made to the embodiments described above without departing from the scope of the present invention.

[0022] Thus the scope of the invention should be determined by the appended claims and their legal equivalents, rather than by the examples given.
