Three things you should know about snus tobacco

Have you heard about snus tobacco, and are you curious about it? In these times when smoking is becoming more and more passé, snus is increasing in popularity. That's because snus is smoke-free, and you don't ingest tar like cigarettes, but it does provide you with your nicotine needs! Moreover, the effect is slightly different and there are different types of snus with different flavors.

What is snus tobacco?

But what exactly is it? The original Swedish snus is a product made from moist ground tobacco mixed with other substances, such as sodium carbonate and flavourings. This Swedish snus tobacco is sold both loose and in pouches. Before use, place the snus under your lip, after which the nicotine is absorbed by your mucous membrane. This results in a pleasant feeling. You leave it under your lip for a while and then you throw the tobacco away. So you don't have to spit or anything like that.

Where can you buy snus tobacco?

Now comes the tricky part: snus tobacco is not for sale in the Netherlands at all. In fact, it is banned throughout the EU, except in Sweden and Norway. So there is no store that is allowed to send it to a Dutch address, not even from a Swedish webshop. But do not be sad. We have an alternative to snus tobacco that is actually only better: nicotine pouches. This is a tobacco-free product that you use in the same way.

What are the advantages of alternatives?

The biggest advantage of nicotine pouches compared to real snus is that they are for sale here and Swedish snus is not. However, the nicotine pouches also have many advantages! As mentioned before, the pouches are tobacco-free, so you do get nicotine but not the other harmful substances of tobacco. The absence of tobacco also ensures that you do not get unsightly stains on your teeth. In addition, the nicotine pouches are a lot more convenient to use than loose snus: the pouches feel nice and are flexible. When you're done with the bag, you don't have any pieces of tobacco in your mouth. Finally, the amount of nicotine in the pouches has been accurately determined, so that you know exactly what you are buying.
