What is snuff?
Snuff refers to finely ground tobacco, which is taken nasally. Depending on the production method, dried tobacco leafs are ground into powder. After adding different oils to apply a certain flavour, the snuff is stored for a period of time.

Depending on personal preferences, snuff can be taken in different ways. The most common ones are:

Take the snuff between your thumb and forefinger and bring it to your nose to sniff it. Put the Snuff on the back of your hand and sniff it carefully with your nose.

More methods with illustrations can be found at Snuffhouse.org/discussion/6/how-to-use-snuff/. How long you keep the snuff in your nose depends on your individual preferences. Some minutes should be enough for the taste to develop and to feel the stimulating effect of the nicotine. In addition, an increased production of nasal discharge should evolve. If you feel you need to get rid of it, just use a handkerchief.

One favourite snuff for the whole day?
Once you found your favourite types, you will notice, that deciding which one to take isn't always easy. You may prefer a light snuff in the morning, a refreshing one during the day and a heavy one for the evening hours. Some snuffers change their all day snuff on a regular basis. Try to find your own favourites and use them whenever you like.
