Products made of Tobacco
Chewing Tobacco is known from ancient history. Americans like this product mixed with lime. Nowadays chewing tobacco is produced in three forms: plug, scrap and twist. It is consumed orally, but it people never enjoyed chewing it.
A cigar is a tightly rolled bundle of dried and fermented tobacco which is ignited so that its smoke may be drawn into the smoker’s mouth.

It is small like cigarette cigar, but it still made like a big cigar.
Cigarette is consuming orally. It is tobacco with additivies, that is rolled into a paper-wrapped cylinder.

It is a form of smokeless tobacco. Dip is sometimes called “chew”; because of this, it is commonly confused with chewing tobacco. Instead of literally chewing on tobacco, a small clump of dip is ‘pinched’ out of the tin and placed between the lower or upper lip and gums.
Long cuts are easier to manage than fine cuts (a smaller granular sized dip – in regard to ease of grabbing the tobacco and keeping it comfortably in mouth).
Fine cut comes in granules slightly larger than sand or coffee grounds.
Snuff or simply moist snuff looks similar to dirt or sand in terms of granular size. Extremely small cut.
Pouches hold fine cut tobacco in a small teabag-like pouch for convenience.
Dissolvable tobacco is a recent introduction, entering mainstream use in the later half of the 2000s. The product consists of finely-processed tobacco which is developed in such a way as to allow the substance to dissolve on the tongue or in the mouth. Camel tobacco is the major purveyor of dissolvable tobacco products, with three varieties, including strips, sticks and orbs, however companies such as Ariva and Stonewall have also been successful with such manufacturing, marketing compressed tobacco lozenges.
Dokha is a tobacco of Iranian origin mixed with leaves, bark, and herbs. It is traditionally smoked in a midwakh.
Gutka (also spelled gutkha, guttkha, guthka) is a preparation of crushed betel nut, tobacco, and sweet or savory flavorings. It is manufactured in India and exported to a few other countries. A mild stimulant, it is sold across India in small, individual-size packets. It is consumed much like chewing tobacco, and like chewing tobacco it is considered responsible for oral cancer and other severe negative health effects.
It is a somewhat moist form of tobacco that is coagulated with molasses or other sticky sweeteners and has been popular in the Middle-East for centuries. It is often smoked with a hookah. Its names include ma’sal, tumbâk, and jurâk.
Snuff is a generic term for fine-ground smokeless tobacco products. Originally the term referred only to dry snuff, a fine tan dust popular mainly in the eighteenth century. This is often called “Scotch Snuff”, a folk-etymology derivation of the scorching process used to dry the cured tobacco by the factory. Snuff powder originated in the UK town of Great Harwood and was famously ground in the town’s monument prior to local distribution and transport further up north to Scotland.
Tobacco gum, like dissolvable tobacco, is a recent introduction – a type of chewing gum which, like nicotine gum provides nicotine through oral absorption. However, the difference between nicotine gum and tobacco gum is that tobacco gum is made from finely powdered tobacco mixed with a gum base, rather than freebase nicotine.
Tobacco water is a traditional organic insecticide used in domestic gardening. Tobacco dust can be used similarly. It is produced by boiling strong tobacco in water, or by steeping the tobacco in water for a longer period. When cooled the mixture can be applied as a spray, or ‘painted’ on to the leaves of garden plants, where it will prove deadly to insects.
Basque angulero fishermen kill immature eels (elvers) in an infusion of tobacco leaves before parboiling them in salty water for transportation to market as angulas, a seasonal delicacy.
Topical tobacco paste
Topical tobacco paste is sometimes recommended as a treatment for wasp, hornet, fire ant, scorpion, and bee stings An amount equivalent to the contents of a cigarette is mashed in a cup with about a 0.5 to 1 teaspoon of water to make a paste that is then applied to the affected area. Paste has a diameter of 4 to 5 cm (1.5 to 2 inches) and may need to be moistened in dry weather. If made and applied immediately, complete remission is common within 20–30 minutes, at which point the paste can be removed. The next day there may be a some residual itching, but virtually no swelling or redness. There seems to be no scientific evidence, as yet, that this common home remedy works to relieve pain.For about 2 percent of people, allergic reactions can be life-threatening and require emergency treatment. For more on this, see bee stings.
