Snus made from ground tobacco and can be Loose or Parcela, divided into three varieties: coarse, medium and fine grind and after 200 years, a Swedish tradition remains.
It was in 1724 that King Fredrik I of Sweden asked the people to grow tobacco, seen as an essential product at the time. Placements already existed in Sweden, but with the request of the crown that intended to be self-sufficient in 4 years, the increase was considerable.
From the beginning, tobacco was the work of women, who passed on knowledge from mother to daughter, who worked during the spring in the fields or in the tobacco factories.
However, the international competition with cheaper production prices ended up closing the Swedish factories, while maintaining the tradition.
Snus, a tobacco that is divided into three varieties: coarse, medium and fine grind, is placed a small portion of this tobacco under the upper lip.
It was in 1970 that snus started to be packaged in small paper bags, many consumers started to prefer this shape because it was not necessary to mould tobacco by hand.
And this is where the new way to sell snus started, as the bag’s surface is drier, offers less dripping and a longer-lasting flavour release compared to the original standard portions.
This individual tobacco package, which has the advantage of not smoking, therefore has no restrictions, is placed directly and discreetly between the upper or lower lip and the gums, and you can feel the nicotine slowly dissolving in the mouth. It does not stain your teeth because the bags are white, you can also chew the tobacco inside the bag.
This type of tobacco that does not use combustion is, therefore, less harmful than cigarettes or vaporizers, therefore less harmful to the lungs, but it can also be consumed in public places as it does not emit harmful smells or fumes.
