Why are there two weights on the HEETS package?

The two different weight specifications are based on two different legal requirements:
  • the real weight of the tobacco blend according to final packaging regulations
  • the measurement basis for tobacco taxation
The weight indication of 5.3 grams on the bottom of the package shows the actual weight of the tobacco blend per HEETS package.
For tobacco taxation purposes, a weight of 6 grams per pack is what counts, which is why that is what the tax label (tax band) indicates.
