Snus strength is determined by the percentage of nicotine in a pouch. There are of course several factors that affect strength, top on the list including how much saliva your mouth produces and how you use the snus. Different snus recipes require different tobacco blends, so nicotine content will vary from one product to another. In fact, the nicotine is not added artificially but is usually extracted during production, so the percentage of the compound corresponds to what is found in the tobacco blend processed. So, how do you decide which blend to use based on considerations of nicotine snus strenght?

Strong snus

Snus made with high nicotine content can be placed in several categories including Strong, Extra Strong, Ultra Strong, etc. For comparison purposes, regular snus contains about 8mg per potion nicotine while strong snus will have levels of nicotine between 12 and 24 mg/portion. The choice of nicotine content, therefore, is influenced by your preferences as well as whether you are doing it for the first time. If new to the product, it’s advisable to start with mild snus and transition gradually to products that pack a heavy punch. Note that consuming too much of any stimulant could lead to harmful health effects, so don’t overindulge while at it.

Mild snus

Perfect for beginners looking to transition from smoking to using snus pouches, mild snus is slightly weaker but can be made attractive with the addition of different flavours. This type of snus is designed to deliver a smooth effect that will not get you knocked hard like when you consume strong snus pouches. Mostly, mild nicotine snus is infused with some tobacco character for those who would like to quit smoking but still enjoy the stimulation they get from nicotine. You can find a variety of mild nicotine snus products that suit your flavour preferences if you like the nicotine served in small amounts.
