Snus, despite being known for centuries in the Scandinavian countries, is gaining more and more popularity. What exactly is snus and how does it relate to the e-cigarette and e-liquid industry? You will find the answers to these and other questions regarding snus in the article below.
1. What is snus?
Traditional snus (brown snus) is a moist tobacco product popular in Scandinavia. It looks like tobacco wrapped in a cellulose bag, resembling a tiny bag of tea. Traditional snus is made of a mixture of dried tobacco leaves and salt, which is moistened with hot steam. The finished product contains about 50% water and should be kept in the fridge. There is also a version of snus without cellulose packaging, which is called “loose snus”. Usually, snus is applied by placing between the lower or upper lip and the gum. As a result nicotine from tobacco is absorbed into the body from the oral cavity. Moreover, the nicotine content in snus is higher than in a traditional cigarette.
2. Non-tobacco snus
Non-tobacco snus (white snus) derives from traditional, brown snus. The only difference between the two is the nicotine carrier. Tobacco snus contains tobacco leaves, while non-tobacco snus is filled with cellulose. Powdered cellulose is soaked in a mixture of pure nicotine, aromas and pH-alignant (to make snus pH more similar to the natural pH of the oral cavity). The mixture is additionally moistened with PG, however, non-tobacco snus is a little dry. It means that the user may feel the nicotine effect and a taste a few seconds after placing snus behind a lip.

The first thing that usually comes to mind when it comes to nicotine is tobacco, regardless of whether it is smoking, vaping, or pharmaceutical nicotine. As nicotine is obtained mainly from tobacco, this is a reasonable association and thus usually nicotine products are subject to the same regulations as tobacco products. Usually, but not always – there is a way to produce non-tobacco nicotine which is also called synthetic nicotine. read more »
