Snus and Nicotine

Some help understanding Snus and Nicotine

Swedish Snus produces a nicotine “kick” that habitual consumers find satisfying. The flip side of the coin, however, is that it is precisely this “kick” that explains the risk of nicotine dependence with snus. Most snus brands have a nicotine content of 0.8% corresponding to 8 mg in a standard 1.0 gram pouch.

I’d like to take a few minutes to consider our favorite vice, tobacco. It really doesn’t matter which side of the political spectrum you fall on, no one can deny that the US economy is in shambles. Will it recover? Probably. It always has in the past. How long the recovery takes and what life will be like during it can be debated until the cows come home, or longer.

I have heard stories from the Great Depression era of people (generally from mining towns) that would buy leaf chewing tobacco, chew it, set it up on a window sill to dry, and then shred it for smoking in their pipes.  I have been trying to find a written source of this story but so far no luck. I hope none of us get that low in our finances, but with taxes and slumping incomes…who knows?

Snus and snuff for me fit my idea of good economics. I have been asked a bunch of times if I’m saving money by switching from smoking to Swedish snus.
