Swedish snus is a pulverised and moist form of tobacco, which you place behind your upper lip, where it releases nicotine gradually. There are various kinds of Swedish snus, and this article will briefly touch on a few of the main ones. However, if you want to know more, you’ll find a wealth of information on this topic online.

One of the main differences in Swedish snus is between the white and the traditional brown tobacco snus. The white version is made from the brown tobacco, which is purified and refined to remove nitrosamines (which are carcinogenic). So the white snus smells and tastes the same as the ordinary brown snus, but it’s healthier and won’t discolour your teeth. What’s not to love?
