What is Snus?

Snus is a traditional tobacco product that originated from Sweden in the 1800s. It is placed between the upper lip and gum for up to an hour whereby saliva extracts the nicotine and flavor, then absorbed across the oral membrane. Traditionally, it comes loose, and users ‘pinch’ and form their own ‘prilla’ and place it against their gum. More recently, snus pouches or preportioned snus has become available, removing the need to pinch the tobacco, and simplifying the technique.

Swedish snus contains pasteurized tobacco and many different flavorings, varying from peppermint to juniper, and citrus. Also, strengths and pouch sizes vary facilitating those with different nicotine tolerances and allowing users to sculpt their own snus experience. There’s a product for all preferences.

 

Snus Tobacco: What are the Ingredients in Snus?

Many types of tobacco or Nicotiana originate from different parts of the world including the Americas, Africa, and Australia, each having a unique taste and aroma. Different brands create unique blends with multiple tobacco plants, creating an individual tasting profile separating each snus brand. Other than tobacco, different flavorings amongst other less obvious substances are used, explored below:

  • Ground Tobacco
  • Flavor Enhancers/Salt
  • Water
  • Sodium Carbonate
  • Flavorings
  • Moisture preserving agents

Most substances listed above and their use reasons are straightforward apart from sodium carbonate. Sodium carbonate is used to adjust the pH, which affects the ability and extraction of nicotine from the tobacco plant. 

 

Types of Snus: What are They?

The type of snus, as well as its strength and flavor, can vary. This can involve the product's moisture, format, and the way the tobacco has been prepared. All of these can affect the experience through the feel under the lip and the speed and intensity of the nicotine and flavor release. Below, the different types are bullet-pointed.

  • Loose Snus is ground tobacco, fine or coarse, that’s moist and requires the user to form their own ‘prilla’.
  • Original Portioned Snus is similar to loose Snus as the tobacco is moist and has the same dark color but it’s preportioned into sachets.
  • White Snus is much dryer. In turn, it lasts much longer, is less intense, and produces less drip.
  • All White Portions are very different in the way the tobacco is prepared. The tobacco is bleached and dry, making the snus pouch white, removing the chance of getting stained teeth after use.

 

What are the Different Snus Pouches?

Another factor that influences the experience is the size of the snus pouches. The weight of the different sizes can range from around 0.5 to 1 gram per portion, influencing product strength and mouthfeel. Below, the different sizes are uncovered, detailing how their characteristics influence the snus experience.

  • Mini - Short and narrow sachets weighing around 0.5 grams each, sitting easily under the lip while providing a comfortable experience.
  • Slim - These narrow and long pouches weigh from 0.7 to 0.8 grams each. Each snus will sit snug under the upper lip, with little to no movement.
  • Regular - The most popular snus pouch and the first portion to be invented. Each weighs around 1 gram, providing plenty of tobacco, a full lip feel, and an immersive experience.
  • Large - This size isn’t very common and few products come in this format. But those that do, weigh more than 1 gram and are best suited to experienced users.

 

How to Use Snus

As touched on throughout, snus is easy and discreet to use. All there is to do is pick a pouch and place it against your gum, underneath your top lip. It is possible to place it underneath your bottom lip but excess drip may be produced, reducing the enjoyment of the experience. The longevity of the snus experience changes, varying from 45 minutes to over an hour. Once finished, place the used product in the catch lid of your can and carry on with your day.

When it comes to snus brands, each has its niche and specific tobacco character, meaning users will prefer different brands. Some have stood the test of time and remain popular after years of competition, while others have burst onto the scene with something new and revitalizing. Below, are some brands that occupy most snusers’ rotations.

Most Common Snus Flavors

As well as formats, strengths, and brands, there are different flavor categories of snus, consisting of subtle tobacco character differences and herbal and fruity additions. Some tasting profiles are more popular than others and this is noticeable by looking at which tastes are within each brand's line. Some of the more common and favored flavor profiles include:

  • Classic - centers around the natural tobacco flavorings with subtle additions of herbs and spices like bergamot and juniper.
  • Mint - brands still use the characters supplied in their tobacco blends but compliment them with endearing notes of mint, whether peppermint, spearmint, menthol, or a mixture of all.
  • Fruit - sometimes users want a sweet taste and get that through a fruity addition to their snus. Some of the more popular flavors across brands include berries and melon.

There are other more intriguing flavors available, like tastes that are beverage-inspired and utilize flavors such as whiskey or cola. Other, more adventurous options are available for all kinds of preferences.

 

Strong Snus: Which is the Strongest?

The strength of snus can vary massively. Some lower-strength snus can contain as little as 4mg of nicotine per portion. On the other hand, strong snus can contain as much as 43 mg/g of nicotine. So the nicotine strength spectrum is very wide. Some brands are known for their high-strength snus, like Siberia and Odens Snus, while others provide a more regular range for the standard snuser.

In terms of the strongest snus pouch, a few products come to mind, including:

  1. Siberia Extremely Strong White Dry
  2. Siberia Brown Power
  3. Chainsaw Cold Mint Super Strong White

It is important to note that using extremely strong snus is not recommended, especially for those new to tobacco and nicotine, and is only suitable for veteran snusers. Moreover, the experience provided by regular strength snus is far more enjoyable and still delivers a satisfying sensation.
