Hi. I'm new here from Oregon. I have a couple questions. I just started taking snuff two days ago. I read the pinching instructions on the WoS website and also on this fine forum. So far, so good. I have not had any tongue hits with McChrystal's O&G or Garrett's Scotch XX (not a big fan of unscented snuff, I found out), which are the only two available locally. I even tried plugging, which works pretty well also. My first question is: I read that nasal snuff should provide some sort of kick or buzz, but that has not been my experience. In fact, nothing seems to happen, except a slight burn when the snuff first hits the nasal membranes. So, should I not expect a kick or buzz?
Admittedly, I still smoke cigars and pipes, so since I already have Vitamin N in my system, maybe that is why I'm not getting the expected results. I will say, however, that I have noticed one effect. I take sleeping meds every night before bed and when I wake up, I feel very tired still even after sleeping eight hours. For the last two mornings, however, I did three bumps of O&G a few minutes apart. After those, I was more awake than usual. So I assume that the morning Vitamin N is the reason.
I enjoy the snuff experience and now that I've found it I am planning to quit cigars as soon as my stash is smoked, but still plan to smoke pipes.
The tobacconist from whom I purchased the two snuffs mentioned above told me that he has some on order but that they are still in Customs after four months. The reason given is that the warning labels on the tins are not large enough! I just placed an order with Mr. Snuff for five tins.
So, for those of you who live in the US, can I expect my order to be held up in Customs as well and, if so, for how long?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
