Hello all! I recently purchased some W.E. Garrett scotch snuff at my local tobacco store, which the snuff itself was hidden back in a cozy corner with a very limited selection. I absolutely had no idea what I was getting myself in to. The reason is that I was ignorant to the fact that snuff is a NASAL tobacco, and I, being from the American south, have only seen people use this same nasal snuff as they do chewing tobaccos and dip, in the mouth. Even to this day, nasal snuff is dipped by older people, especially prevalent in elderly communities. Anyways, upon learning that it's a nasal tobacco, and even more brands exist outside the U.S., my curiosity piqued and I started reading and watching how-to's for proper technique, etc.
I pretty much understand how to take the snuff, but what I don't understand is where the snuff needs to be in the nose. Do I want it in the opening nostril, or higher up in the nose? Furthermore, how do I get the snuff out of my nose, because I assume a person is not to sniff the snuff and leave it in forever, correct? I've only tried the snuff once and my nose instantly became runny. At this point am I to blow my nose, which would clear out all snuff, or what? Lastly, I just don't realize how long the snuff lasts and if a person keeps adding snuff to one's nose in timely increments. Unfortunately, I know not a single local person who uses snuff nasally, otherwise i'd ask these finer questions of them. My apologies if I'm not entirely clear on my questions, but I'll certainly work in order to gain a clearly understanding on the finer points of snuff.
