  • Nordic Spirit - Strange Nicotine Strength Ratings

    Well, I'm tried my first of the Nordic Spirit Berry Citrus, and it tastes good to me, but was curious about why the impact of it when the MySnus.com site rated at ~14mg per pouch (had seen the same thing elsewhere), but seen other Snus sites stating it is 9mg! I looked on the back on the can, and it reads "9 mg/portion (14mg /g)". I've never seen such a reading as that before, and I really can't figure that out. I was expecting a real time of 14mg as the way they been listed since at least the year 2006. PUZZLED.

    Interesting about these variances of numbers here and there. Example, For Lyft Urban Vibe Strong, MySnus.com reads the Nicotine Content is ~14mg, yet, at BuySnus.com, it says 10mg for the same exact product. The back of the can has the 18.6mg reading, but I see that is appear the weight of each pouch themselves. Getting too old to "roll with the changes". I do like some of the Snus cans using CIRCLES (4 of them) to inform the user of the Nicotine Strength. Strong has 3 of those 4 Circles filled in (non-empty). Would like to know what the range for each filled circle is... obviously, if it is just one, I assume 4 or 5mg of Nicotine per pouch.

      I think the discrepancy probably lies in whether the nicotine content is quoted as nicotine per gram of mix or per portion with a lot of portion products not containing a full gram of mix anymore.

      I think the strength circle system is probably going to vary manufacturer to manufacturer but looking from a snus perspective I would expect 1 circle to be regular strength, 2 medium strength, 3 stark, 4 extra stark and 5 ultra-stark.
