Apparently, Bengt appreciated what I wrote because I was one of the first to receive his latest press release about the patent approval for Sting Free technology.

From seed to Swedish snus moving the plants outside

Here you can read how the 2020 season is progressing. Now it is time to move the plants outside when the frost nights seem to be over. The plant has grown so big that they begin to entangle and it's becoming difficult to water them. It's so easy to miss one when you don't see the pot for all leaves covering them.

From seed to Swedish snus moving the plants outside
Prepare the garden for moving the plants outside The first step before moving the plants outside is to prepare the location where you are going to put them. As I have not used my greenhouse since 2016 I had a lot of weeds to remove from the growing beds. It was a lot of weeds and a lot of roots in the soil and small willows as well. Besides the weeds, my neighbor’s hens have used the beds as a food trough disturbing the soil regularly. [Read More]

From seed to Swedish snus repotting the seedlings

Here you can read how the 2020 season is progressing. Now it is time to repot the plants into separate containers. The plant has grown so big that they begin to entangle, and it's now better to separate them into their own container. If you don't do that it's a mess to try to separate them when it's time to move them outside.

From seed to Swedish snus repotting the seedlings
Growing the seedlings With the seed trays with water containers, I did not have to do anything until it was time to replant them. I lifted the seed tray out of the water container as the soil was almost too moist. I did not have to water them again for the whole period, but the seedlings were very tiny and did not need much water to grow. But I know that is something that will change as they grow bigger and taller. [Read More]

From seed to Swedish snus Planting the seed

The tobacco growing season 2020 is here, starting with planting the seed. Here you can read about the start of the 2020 season, what seeds I plant and the decision behind choosing those plants. It all starts with a tiny seed.

From seed to Swedish snus Planting the seed
Why grow your tobacco Most tobacco today is grown by large corporations or bought by large corporations. But homegrown tobacco have been around for centuries. If you grow your tobacco yourself you know what ends up in your snus, cigar, or cigarette. And if you don’t sell your tobacco, you don’t have to deal with a sudden tax increase by the government. Something I wrote about in the post about Prillan snus tobacco. [Read More]

Snus can be smoked and may be the end for home-made Swedish snus

Do-it-yourself snus can also be smoked - and should be taxed as smoking tobacco, according to the Supreme Administrative Court in Stockholm, Sweden. The verdict could be the death blow to home-made snus, according to the losing snus company lawyer.

Snus can be smoked and may be the end for home-made Swedish snus
The end for home-made Swedish snus? The tax issue is settled after the snus company Prillan Concept was demanded an extra SEK 94 million in tax from the Customs Administration. Tests on the tobacco that the company uses in do-it-yourself snus showed that it can also be smoked. A big disappointment Of course, that is a big disappointment, says attorney Ulf Käll, who represents the tobacco company. According to the lawyer, the type of tobacco is treated differently in different EU countries, which means that the legal situation is unclear and that the case should, therefore, have been forwarded to the European Court of Justice.

Production and product quality of Swedish snus

Swedish snus has been around for hundreds of years, but development and production today is incredibly different from what it looked like in the beginning.

Production and product quality of Swedish snus
Snus has been around for generations in Sweden. Ljunglöfs Ettan was introduced in 1822 and is still on the market today. But how is product development conducted today? In this post, I will try to answer that question with the help of snuspodden (the Snus podcast) by Swedish Match. The flavor is important in the development In the old days flavors were used to disguise the bad taste and rancid snus. [Read More]
