thailand snus is a small but growing market. A handful of svensk snus manufacturers export their products to this tourist-rich country.
You can pack snus in your carry-on luggage when flying to and from thailand. But there are a few things you should know before heading to the airport.
1. ACE Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus is a genus of flowering plants with many species. The essential oil of eucalyptus is used in medicine to treat respiratory infections such as bronchitis and asthma, as well as other diseases of the throat, lungs, and genitourinary system like cough, tuberculosis, and leucorrhea.
Chemical profiling of eucalyptus species indicated that they contain several bio-active phyto-chemicals including terpenoids with PPAR-g agonistic activity which can regulate carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. This suggests that eucalyptus or its bio-actives could be a promising therapeutic agent for type 2 diabetes.
2. ACE Cool Mint
ACE Cool Mint is tobacco-free snus that gives you an effective nicotine kick. The slim all white nicotine pouches are comfortably soft under the lip and leave no discoloration on your teeth.

Their goal: to help Scandinavians avoid getting their hearts broken in the Bangkok airport’s customs queues. Their product: RITE Cool Mint Large, a white portion that’s low in drip and delivers a long-lasting taste. It’s also high in nicotine.
