Snus is a moist, smokeless tobacco product originating in Sweden. It is used by applying a small amount of the substance to the inside of the lip. Unlike chewing tobacco, there is no need to spit when using snus. Snus was first used in the eighteenth century when Swedish manufacturers began to produce a moist version of the popular product, snuff, which was taken by inhaling via the nose. Snuff had been very fashionable with the European upper classes of the seventeenth century. Snus quickly became a successful product in Sweden, and continues to be sold today. Many people use snus instead of smoking cigarettes.
When taking snus, the user experiences a feeling similar to when using snuff, or smoking a cigarette. It is typical that concentration and focus increase, due to the stimulant effect of the tobacco. Generally, the effect of tobacco is described as relaxing to the user, as well as giving the user more energy in the short term. Many people use tobacco in order to experience this combined effect of relaxation and stimulation. The feeling of taking snus is in this way similar to using other tobacco products. Snus is also produced in different flavours, which may increase the tingling or mild burning feeling in the mouth.
