Two variants; ordinary and portion snus.
Less dangerous and foul smelling than smoking, but can cause mouth and lip cancer. It's also a dead turn off.
Since it almost only found in Scandinavia, it's hell to take it through customs in other parts of the world.
"Sorry, we don't have Skruf, what about some General instead?"
"Nah, I rather take a pack of Ettan."
Portion is a pouch of snus that is usually placed under the upper lip.
Loose snus is formed into a pris by hand or with a special tool (Prismaster, icetool, etc.). Loose is usually used by more experienced users.
Snus contains more nicotine than cigarettes but is much safer simply because there is no smoke. The tobacco is steam cured and sometimes pasteurized to remove deadly or cancer causing TSNAs. The 4 main ingredients in snus are salt, water, flavorings, and of course - Tobacco.
Snus can be used anywhere. It is barely noticeable under the lip and you don't need to spit while using it.
Snus carries a warning that it CAN cause cancer. Cancer as a direct use of snus is very rare.
Evan: Don't use them anymore. You can have some snus, its a lot safer and tastes great.
