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 gaining popularity. That's because snus is smoke-free, and you don't take in tar like you do with cigarettes, but you do meet 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 aromas. This Swedish snus tobacco is sold both individually and in bags. 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 throw the tobacco away. So you don't have to spit or anything like that.
Where can you buy snus tobacco?
Now the tricky part: snus tobacco is not for sale in the Netherlands at all. In fact, it is banned across the EU, except in Sweden and Norway. So there is no store that can ship 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 benefits of alternatives?
The biggest advantage of nicotine pouches over real snus is that they are for sale here and Swedish snus are not. However, the nicotine bags also have many advantages! As mentioned earlier, the pouches are tobacco-free, so you do get nicotine but not the other harmful substances of tobacco. Also, the absence of tobacco 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 bags feel pleasant and are flexible. When you're done with the bag, you don't have any chunks of tobacco in your mouth. Finally, the amount of nicotine in the pouches is precisely determined, so you know exactly what you are buying.
