    I think I'm in love with los

    No really.

    It's so good damn delicious a can a day keeps the Insanity at bay, well kind of. A few mudslides and still haven't perfected getting the Pris out of my mouth. Can't wait until the thunder eska stark gets here though shall miss odens.

    To answer your question, to my knowledge GN never gave us the specific numbers. He may not have had them in a reliable sense at the time the question was asked given the relative newness of the product..........that said, my feel on the TSNA is that the Extreme line is a bit higher than the General line but still lower than American Dip.....which is much MUCH lower than American dip of the past. This means Extreme is still well within the harm reduction range when compared to American smokeless.

    My reasoning is this......the types of tobacco and curing process used by Extreme would suggest a higher TSNA count than General. On the other hand, it is still sold and marketed in Sweden as snus which means it must meet some pretty rigorous standards (remember SM exceeded those standards and set a company standard that was above and beyond what the Swedish Government required)

    The result is that personally I have no concern using anything GN puts out. In fact, I have a can of Extreme los going right now.

    As a side note: go check out the Dipper's Guide to Snus if you have not already.......it is about all things los. A lot of folks have contributed a lot of good info and tips there.....you may find some good suggestions on preventing mudslides.

    Cheers ill give that a good read, never really dipped hence overlooked it. Ill prob go back to odens on my next order as northerner is slower and the prices work out rouhly the same. Ill wait and see how the thunder suites me, got a heavy tight chest right now thouh, need to cut down on the pris size... but may be other factors other then the snus ie asthma and it being winter and the fact i dont leave the flat a whole lot.

    Still im not too bothered it beats smoking and i stick by the fact my life is hugely improved over to when i was smoking. I would still recommend anyone facing the impossible task of kicking smokes to give snus a try if all else falils first.

    Anyway we all have to go at somepoint but i prefer the better quality of life now. Just wish i could get some swedish mtch products and that the exchange rate was more favourable, but thats not my ickle wickle snus's fault no mo its the big bad bureaucratic nonsense that is the eu

    Edit: got 2 rolls of extreme loose coming from odens, might be a mistake due to the tipsy ess but im sure it shall be used. Yes it shall shall.

    Btw in the guide you refer to putting the snus further back would resault in less mudslides, im fiding the oposite is true, further forwards less saliva, maybe its a genetic thing, like tong rolls vs twists.

    I agree with your assessment. Right now I've got a can of Odens Extra Stark open. I actually like the taste even better that the Extreme line.

    I love Odens ES los

    If I recall, the Odens line should be in keeping with the TSNA levels for standard Swedish snus.....it was only the Extreme line that was a bit elevated due to the type of tobaccos and the curing methods used.....still even so nothing to worry about IMHO

    Good to know, i guess they use rustica. Looking forward to comparing thunder and odens nic hit wise... found my old xtool portion maker and im finding i get less mud slides while using it, idk what ive done with my icetool portion maker, i may have chucked it when i gave up snus, if i have its one hell of an expensive mistake.
