Strong/Extra Strong Snus
« on: September 22, 2011, 04:35:20 AM »
What effects do you get from strong or extra strong snus?

I've read that high nicotine has a sedative, pain-killing effect, whilst lower nicotine amounts have a stimulating effect. And for me, that's very true. I just get tired and sleepy by strong snus, which works well in the evening, but not very good during the day for me.

The sedative effect can come for me at such 'low' doses as 12 mg (like Thunder Long+ for instance), but often only if I chain snus it during some time.

If I drink coffee together with lots of strong portions, I start yawning and feel like going to bed.

The only time I love strong portions are when drinking. Then I don't get that sleepy effect.

Does anyone else get that effect? I don't really get the high nicotine hype.

stay on the low and enjoy the slow.
that-a-way, the strong will work when you need it most.
if the strong isn't working or gives u the sleeps it's because your
overloaded with nicotine. Just give it a break or go on the low.  8)

You only really need to chain on the strong when your trying to quit smoking.
On the final day before I quit smoking when the ache was so bad, I chained
3 extra strong portions at once! left and right and front top lip.  :o

A few weeks later now I'm on 8mg portions and los!
I'll have a strong every so often when I get really busy as a pick me up.

In my next order I'll probably just get some 8mg's and 12mg portions and some los.
No need to take it too high anymore can always 'double up' if need be.
(unless someone brings out a new flavor)

Actually. . .
I'd prefer some new flavors in regular strength instead of strong and extra strong and lately they're only bringing out the strong.

Swedish Match recently brought out 05 and 06 and I didn't really notice much difference except 05 was a WP and 06 OP.
Opened up a can of Thunder chrome coffee yesterday and it was dry.  >:(
Opened up a can of Thunder chrome blue+ today and it was super moist.  ;D

Is the coffee supposed to be dry? Common quality control V2 and this is your
brand new line of product!!

Actually Thunder chrome blue+ is pretty good so far.
Enjoying more than the coffee.

All in all, los seems to be the best for me. You get almost double the amount of tobacco in a can compared to portions and you can size up your own dose. I reckon it's about 1 click per hour. lol

Hope that all makes sense, I'm in the middle of work... taking a quick break.

If I'm tired, it wakes me up. If I'm awake, it makes me a little tired. Since I've been using nicotine for so long, it doesn't have a noticeable on me except with caffeine.  I can't do the caffeine and nicotine like yall can. I like my coffee and my dip/snus but not together haha. Makes me feel awful.

I'm getting headaches from the extreme / ultra portions.
I can snus a Thunder RAW or an Oden's Extreme in the morning - that's okay. Wakes me up and has no other effects.
After dinner I often use a 16mg portion but if I'd snus something stronger I'll get headaches.

Besides: The more nicotine you take the more you'll need to get satified. I snus 2 strong portions a day (max.) and during the day I'm totally happy with the weak ones :D

I have been chain-snusing almost exclusively strong/extra strong portions lately. I don't want to, but I think I've gotten accustomed to the higher nicotine level sadly... I think it's time to wean myself off them and go with the low ones again. I don't notice anything difference from standard nicotine snus - except less of an overload-feeling when chaining them.

The stronger snus definitely give me more focus and alertness. It's a good early morning snus to go along with my coffee. I wouldn't say they give me a sleepy feeling. Actually gets me going.

When tapering down, go in increments. For example, if you're using 20mg portion snus, switch to a 16mg variant for a week, then 12mg, then 8mg. It's relatively painless.

Most strong portions fell the same to me except for an Oden's extreme wintergreen I had at work.  That little bastard kicked my ass.  I felt like i was heavily sedated.  It wasn't a bad feeling, but had to take it out after 45 minutes.  I have some Oden's extreme los on order.  Looking forward to trying that
