What is Smokeless Tobacco Snus?

Snus (also known as “snuff” or “loose snus”) is a moist tobacco product originating from Sweden. Unlike traditional chewing tobacco, snus is placed under the upper lip and does not require spitting. It provides a steady release of nicotine. 

These days however, snus and nicotine pouches are often used synonymously to refer to tobacco-free pouches. We do not stock traditional snus that contains tobacco here at Northerner. Dive into the world of smokeless tobacco products and alternatives with Northerner UK today.

Snus vs Nicotine Pouches

The use of snus dates back to the 18th century. While both Swedish snus and nicotine pouches offer a smokeless experience, there’s a key difference: snus contains tobacco and tobacco leaves, whereas nicotine pouches are completely tobacco-free. Nicotine pouches only deliver nicotine, making them a less harmful option.
A commonly asked question is “is snus legal in the UK?” You cannot buy traditional tobacco snus in the UK. However, you can legally purchase tobacco-free snus (also known as nicotine pouches) in the UK if you are over 18 years old.

Tobacco-Free Snus Pouches

Tobacco-free snus, also known as white nicotine pouches or nicopods, are portioned pouches that contain nicotine without tobacco. Like tobacco snus, these pouches are placed between the lip and gum. These pouches were developed in Sweden, the land of tobacco snus, to provide a tobacco-free alternative.

At Northerner UK, we offer a wide variety of tobacco-free nicotine pouches in numerous flavours to suit every palate.

Tobacco-Free Snus Pouch Sizes

Like traditional snus, tobacco-free snus comes in several different formats. There are 3 different pouch sizes:


Mini pouches are the smallest size available. They typically come in lower nicotine strengths and are the most discreet of all the snus sizes. Mini snus are suitable for regular snus use. 


Slim pouches are slightly narrower than their normal counterparts. They are the most common pouch size and range from 4 mg all the way up to 20 mg of nicotine per pouch. 


Normal pouches are the largest snus pouch size. Not to worry, they still fit comfortably in between your lip and gums. Large snus usually contain higher nicotine contents.
