Portion snus was introduced back in 1974 to provide consumers with a quality product that does not result to dirty fingers, and a product that you can easily get rid of right after using.
The traditional portion snus that was introduced in 1974 was made up of dried tobacco in powder form packed in a 18 x 33 mm fiber bag. The bag was later humidified until it reached the 55% moisture level. This resulted to a portion bag of 1 gram that looked a lot like a used tea bag. The particular product was referred to as standard portion.
Since that time, portion snus sold on the market has evolved a lot. These days, you can find two kinds of small portion bags at 0.4 and 0.6 gram packs. These bags are intended to cater particularly to beginners and women.
Available on the market as traditional portion snus, the small portion bags are humidified on the exterior and marked as “Dry” variants. The product bears a completely white appearance.
Beginning in spring of 2004, manufacturers launched XL portions of snus – from 1.5 grams to 2 grams that are all humidified traditionally. The new snus products were launched to address the growing demands from a lot of large-scale buyers who consume an average of 2 to 4 pieces of the standard snus portions in a single use.
To use snus, it is usually placed underneath the upper lip inside the mouth. The snus then releases a tiny and closely weighed out volume of nicotine that is absorbed by the mucous membranes in the mouth. The use of oral snus is very prevalent in the Scandinavian countries of Norway and Sweden, where very strict smoking bans in public areas are in place.
