Naswar is a moist, green coloured powdered tobacco mostly used in south Asia. It is placed in the bucco-gingival sulcus (mostly in lower bucco-gingival sulcus) for extended periods of time. It is similar to dipping tobacco and snus. Naswar is highly addictive and carries significant risk for oral and throat cancers.
