Are you a smoker and looking for the perfect alternative to smoking? Then this is the right article for you! Many years ago, different types of tobacco were grown, which were then smoked, snuffed or chewed. This used to be an integral part of spiritual rituals and has continued to this day. In the times of Columbus, tobacco plants reached Europe, where they were then cultivated. Somewhat later, the cigarettes we know today were developed and fitted with filters to retain tar and other toxic substances.

Today we know that smoking cigarettes is one of the unhealthiest ways to consume nicotine. That is why more and more people are switching to a smoking alternative.

The popular alternative to smoking are e-cigarettes - is this smoking alternative the best?

E-cigarettes are probably the most popular alternative to cigarette smoking. Instead of tobacco, a liquid containing nicotine is strongly heated, which develops into smoke. Many users appreciated the large selection of different flavors and that an e-cigarette can be turned off at the touch of a button. However, an e-cigarette also carries risks. For example, if an e-cigarette falls to the ground or has a loose contact, they can explode. Since an explosion would occur when pulling on the e-cigarette, we advise anyone looking for an alternative to smoking not to do so, as inhaling smoke is very unhealthy.

The new alternative to smoking: snus

Snus are becoming increasingly popular and used as an ideal alternative to smoking. With snus, the tobacco is not ignited and the nicotine is absorbed through the oral mucosa. Since snus can also be used indoors and in the smoking ban, snus is one of the best alternatives to smoking.

If you want to use snus as an alternative to smoking, we recommend Siberia Red White Dry. The Siberia Red White Dry presents itself with its clear tobacco flavor and a hint of mint.

The best alternative to smoking are Nicotine Pouches

Nicotine Pouches is the new kind of snus. Nicotine Pouches look and feel the same as snus, but are 100% tobacco free. Instead of tobacco, cellulose is used, which is mixed with nicotine, flavors, salt and other raw materials during production. With Nicotine Pouches you ingest a minimum of harmful substances, unlike smoking.

As an alternative to smoking, we recommend the VELO Freeze and the VELO Mint.

The effect of snus and nicotine pouches - how are they used?

Snus and Nicotine Pouches are small pouches which are filled with tobacco or tobacco substitute (cellulose). These pouches are placed between the gums and upper lip for up to 60 minutes. The nicotine is absorbed through the oral mucosa and takes effect within a few minutes. In another article from us you will find all the answers about nicotine and its effect.
