The #1 Beginners Guide to Snus in 2022

Have you never used snus before?

No problem, we will help you get started!

We have all been beginners at something during our lives. With that said, you are not the first, nor the last beginner when it comes to snus.
Snus or nicotine pouches are placed under the lip and the juice given off from this mixed with your saliva usually gives a pleasant feeling of taste from the seasoning and kick from the nicotine.
Where you place the bag is, of course, entirely up to you as an individual, under the upper lip or lower lip, to the right or left, your taste and liking will decide! If you're unsure which nicotine pouches you would prefer you can read about the top nicotine pouches in 2022.

A recommendation for beginners is to follow our labels about strength and how much nicotine content each bag holds.
Initially, you may want to start with a little less strength and nicotine content to build up a tolerance, it may even be the case that you would want to start with a nicotine pouch before using tobacco product snus.

You usually have a bag under your lip anywhere from a few minutes up to an hour, but it is completely a question of preference from individual to individual.
Accustomed snus users change the bag more often than beginners, but it is highly normal to use one bag or more per hour in volume.
But there are those who take two to three bags at a time and change maybe every twenty minutes during their waking hours.

There are different types of snus.

  • White Portion: Is the most common variety. These portion bags are not moistened after production, which means that they run less. However, they are a little drier on the surface and do not release the flavors as quickly as traditional portions. White portion is not something that has always existed, but it was produced by Swedish Match in 1996. An example of a bestseller in White Portion is General White or Knox Blue White Portion.


  • Original Portion: Classic portion snus as it has been since the portion snus came into being in the 1970s. Here you get a more moist portion bag that releases both taste and liquid almost immediately. Flavored original portion snus is to be preferred as the taste comes into its own right in a very pleasant way. If you want a taste experience, we recommend Jakobsson's Melon or Nick & Johnny Crushed Ice Portion Extra Strong.


  • Mini Portion: Is just like it sounds, a portion snus in a smaller format. Both the pouch and the can are significantly smaller. Fits perfectly in a small handbag or in the inner pocket of a jacket when you want to be a little discreet. Even when the snus is to be consumed, this is done very discreetly thanks to the small pouch. Mini portions are made to almost the same extent as traditional portions, which means that you can usually buy your favorite snus in mini format. Why not bring a ZYN Bellini Mini Dry Extra Strong to your coffee. Or a Göteborgs Rapé White Mini on a business trip.


  • Strong Portion: Snus is made in different strengths when it comes to nicotine content. The strength is measured in milligrams of nicotine per gram of snus. What is considered normal strong has a nicotine content around 7mg/g snus. As a beginner, you should not start with something stronger than that. There are also amounts of snus and nicotine pouches that are significantly weaker than 7mg/g snus. But in this section we will not deal with snus with a low nicotine content but what is called Strong portion. Strong portion means portion snus that has a nicotine content that exceeds 12 mg of nicotine per gram of snus. This is usually what is consumed by experienced snus users and the range of strong snus is huge. There are also extremely strong snus varieties that have a nicotine content of up to 47 mg of nicotine per gram of snus. For the really hardcore snus user, we have Siberia -80 White Dry Portion which gives your a real slap in the face when it comes to nicotine content.
