Snuff is finely ground tobacco that, when in dry form, is sniffed up the nose. It is more popular in European countries than in the US. Snuff is also available in wet form. Wet snuff, sometimes called snus, is rubbed inside the mouth instead.

This differs from chewing tobacco, which is actually chomped on for a much longer period of time.
Though dry snuff has been shown to possibly reduce allergies, it does still contain carcinogenic agents, and people who use it may be increase their chances of developing oral forms of cancer. Wet snuff has a reduced risk of cancer causing agents as compared to smoking tobacco, yet there are still risks involved.
Wet snuff, called snus by the Swedes, is quite popular and used by about 30% of the male population in that country. Snus is prepared somewhat differently than dry snuff, and other wet snuff variants. It is steam-cured instead of being fire-cured which does reduce some of its carcinogens. Yet it does not reduce all carcinogens, and therefore cannot be considered to be entirely safe. Using snus is safer than smoking or chewing tobacco, and delivers about the same benefits from the drug nicotine.

Here my wife finds me what appears to be; pure, sun-dried tobacco leaf. I will stick to my pipes.
