What is a Nicotine Pouch?
This modern take on the 19th-century Swedish invention, snus, has turned the heads of increasing numbers of tobacco and nicotine users. So, naturally, many people wonder what these slim, all-white bags are and what they do. In short, nicotine pouches, also known as tobacco-free snus or nicopods, deliver nicotine, flavour, and aroma to the user via the mouth. However, there is much more to these products than you would expect. So, we have published this article to fully inform all potential and existing users about these revolutionary products. To learn more about nicotine pouches, keep reading.
What Are Nicotine Pouches?
A nicotine pouch is an easy to use nicotine delivery product, which looks like a small, soft, white sachet filled with powder. However, the size, moisture, and colour can vary between brands, flavours, and strengths. A pouch is placed between the user’s gum and cheek, usually in the upper lip, for the nicotine and flavour to be released and absorbed. The term tobacco-free snus was coined for nicotine pouches because of the absence of tobacco and its similarity to snus. Snus is just like a nicotine pouch. However, it contains tobacco for nicotine, flavour, and consistency.
Nicotine pouches are a unique product, but most brands try to imitate the sensation and mouthfeel of snus. Manufacturers emulate snus by using nicotine that has been extracted from the tobacco plant and distilled so that no trace of tobacco remains. Also, plant based fillers are used to ‘plump’ each pouch for a comfortable feel in the lip. The only differences between nicotine pouches and snus are the cleaner flavours, fresher aromas, and lack of teeth staining, which are all positives!
Will Nicotine Pouches Give Me a Buzz?
These products contain nicotine which is in the stimulant class. So, they will certainly provide a buzz. However, the intensity of the effect is dependent on multiple factors, which include:
- Nicotine Content and Tolerance: Nicotine tolerance plays an essential role in the perceived intensity of the effect. People who regularly use high strength pouches will have an increased tolerance to nicotine. The same goes for people that use many pouches in a day. So, for the user to feel a buzz, they must choose a product equal to or greater than the strength regularly used.
- Moisture and pH: Moisture and pH levels affect nicotine strength, which is why you will notice that all pouches vary in moisture and have pH adjusters as an ingredient. Moisture affects the release time of nicotine, and pH determines the power.
- Freshness: Freshness is essential for almost any consumable product. Luckily, nicotine pouches can be stored for a year and longer if frozen. However, if the shelf life date is surpassed, the potency and flavour will be reduced as the pouches dry out.
The general rule is that it is not a good idea to ‘chase a buzz’, which refers to continually increasing the nicotine content of the pouches used. Buzz chasing will cause tolerance issues and may lead to a lack of satisfaction. There are many other aspects to enjoy, such as the hundreds of different nicotine pouch flavours and the mouthfeel, quality, and design.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Nicopods?
The administration method of these products (between the gum and lip), mini or slim size, and their colour, provides two main advantages over other nicotine delivery methods. These key benefits are:
- Ultra Discreet Satisfaction – As we are all aware, nicotine is addictive. So, this means that a user of it will require multiple doses throughout the day to feel satisfied. A key benefit of using nicotine pouches to curb cravings is that they are discreet, concealable and require no combustion. As a result, they can be used throughout the day in any setting and without needing to go outside.
- Oral Hygiene Friendly – In the industry, we call these products ‘all-white’, which refers to their white colour because they contain no tobacco. Users can escape the consequences of tobacco, such as stained teeth and bad breath. When you use these products, your teeth stay white before, during, and after use!
Are nicotine pouches safe? Well, the jury is still out. However, the consensus is that they pose a lesser risk than smokeless tobacco products and cigarettes.
Can I Buy Tobacco-Free Snus In The EU and UK?
These products are continually gaining popularity in the EU and UK, so many citizens wonder whether they are available. Since nicotine pouches contain no tobacco, they are legal to purchase in the EU and UK. Despite the legality, laws often change, which is why we keep our customers updated with the countries that we ship to.
