WHAT IS SNUFF?

Snuff is a smokeless tobacco made from ground up tobacco leaves. Rather than being burned and smoked, snuff is inhaled into the nasal cavity in powdered form by the user. This delivers a quick nicotine hit and lasting sensation, scent and flavour. It comes in a range of textures, moistures and nicotine levels to accommodate for different tastes and preferences. While traditional flavours are blended from tobacco leaves only, many varieties of snuff are also flavoured with additional scents and essences.

WHEN WAS SNUFF INVENTED?

Originating as far back as the 15th century, it is believed that the indigenous populations of Brazil were the first people known to have used ground tobacco as snuff. By the 17th century it was common use across Europe. Following the UK smoking ban in many public places, snuff has seen a resurgence in popularity with younger generations seeking smoke-free alternatives for tobacco.

HOW DO I USE SNUFF?

Snuff is nasally administrated tobacco product - in simple terms, it is traditionally inhaled in small quantities into the nasal cavity, delivering a swift hit of nicotine and a lasting flavoured scent. There are many variations in snuff usage methods, and each snuff user will have preferred techniques.

WHAT IS A SNUFF BULLET?

A snuff bullet is an accessory designed to make snuff use easier and more discreet in public situations. These are small bullet-shaped devices that you would use to store a small amount of snuff for use throughout the day.
