In Norrbotten, the trend was clear last year.
– Increasingly, the people of Norrbotten bought prills with nicotine but without tobacco. Nicotine portions were the fastest growing category and sales increased by 184 percent, says Henrik Ståhl, editor-in-chief of Snusjournalen.
Smokes cig and tobacco – but not nicotine
The reason why people from Norrbotten choose nicotine portions is mainly because they experience it fresher and out of consideration for dental health.
– Above all, it is popular among former smokers and among female snus users, says Henrik Ståhl.
Why do you start snus then? In Norrbotten, the most common reason was that they wanted to quit smoking. As many as 41 percent of the county residents who use snus today state that they started smoking the cigarettes.
