What is Swedish snus?
Swedish snus is made from tobacco. More precisely, it is finely ground, moist tobacco, mixed with salt and flavorings. This Swedish snus is sold both as loose tobacco and in small bags. You place the tobacco under your lip, where the nicotine is released. After a while, you throw the tobacco away again. So it looks a bit like chewing tobacco, with the difference that you don't have to spit. The advantage of snus over smoking is that you don't strain your lungs and don't saddle others with smoke.
