How to use snus and nicotine pouches for the first time

Snus is gaining popularity in Sweden as a healthier alternative to smoking. Snus is simple to use. Here’s how you can do it!

1. Select and purchase a tin of Swedish snus pouches

Online, purchase one or more snus tins. Make certain the nicotine pouches are of the Swedish variety. (Snuff sold in the United States is a completely distinct product.)

If you’re new to snus, the clean white snus is likely to be your favorite. In the UK, Zyn, White Fox, and Nordic Spirit are among of the most popular nicotine pouch brands. They are available in a variety of fresh and fruity flavors, including mint, citrus, berry, and bergamot, and are quite simple to use.

Snus is packed in pouches that resemble tea bags but are small enough to slide under your lip inside the tin. Clean white snus will quench your nicotine cravings without containing any tobacco. The pouches are little and have a pleasant aroma.

2. Using your fingers, pick up a snus pouch.

Using your thumb and index finger, open the lid and grasp a pouch by the corner. Remove it from the tin. You’re well on your way to nicotine nirvana now.

3. Place the pouch behind your upper lip.

Lift your top lip with your other hand to put the nicotine pouch between your lip and gums. If necessary, adjust the bag for the most comfortable fit. Snus pouches are traditionally put to the left or right of the mouth, rather than in the middle, however clean white snus pouches are small, so do what feels appropriate for you.

You can also slide the pouch into place by putting it towards the tip of your tongue and moving it in.

You will be able to put in a snus in a very subtle and covert manner as you gain experience.

4. Keep the snus pouch in your mouth for as long as you want.

It won’t be long before you start feeling the effects of nicotine. Different brands of snus contain varying quantities of nicotine, and some brands are available in varying intensities. As a result, the effect and time it takes for a snus to “wear out” differs.

The snus pouch is usually left in for 15 to one hour.

When using snus, there is no need to spit at all. Spitting is a repulsive habit to begin with. Simply go about your business as usual: smile, speak, and swallow your saliva as a civilized human being would. It will not make your stomach turn.

Although you can drink while holding a snus in your mouth, most users prefer to eat without it. It is not recommended to swallow a snus pouch due of the nicotine content. If this occurs, you will finally vomit.

5. Getting rid of your snus

Take out the snus pouch with your hands or with your tongue. Place the used pouch in a garbage container. Littering is a no-no. If you’re in a restaurant, either excuse yourself to go the restroom or use a napkin.

6. To keep your snus fresher for longer, keep it in the fridge.

Keep the tin you’re currently using in your pocket, handbag, or on your desk for easy access. It will last approximately a week in the refrigerator. Refrigerate the remaining snus tins to prevent them from drying out and to keep them sweet and fresh.

Suggestions from a snus pro

Snus can be used in places where smoking is prohibited, such as flights, offices, and restaurants. We do, however, encourage you to do so in a thoughtful manner, particularly when discarding old pouches.

If you’re traveling abroad, make careful to check if the country you’re visiting has any specific snus rules.

You’ve taken too much nicotine if you feel dizzy or queasy while using snus. Remove the snus pouch and sit down for a time. Next time, maybe go for a milder snus.

If you want to use snus to help you stop smoking, use a snus with a low nicotine concentration or transition from a regular to a lower nicotine content snus gradually.

Different snus and nicotine brands are described in this guide.

Refer to the Swedish Snus and Nicotine Pouches – a Brief Introduction for a thorough overview to different types of snus and brands.

Swedish snus comes in a variety of flavors.

Swedes can be seen using both modern white snus and classic Swedish snus, as Sweden is the place where snus originated. Snus is traditionally prepared from tobacco leaves, either with or without added flavors. Swedish snus is available in pouches as well as loose tobacco. The dark color and pungent scent of fermented tobacco make it easy to spot. Although the nicotine effect is similar to that of clean white snus, the overall sensation might be quite different.
