What are nicotine pouches?
Nicotine pouches are a tobacco-free and smokeless nicotine product.
This beginners guide on how to use nicotine pouches will help you decide if they are right for you, and how to use them.
Nicotine pouches are often used as a safer alternative to cigarettes (studies/research is available – please thoroughly research this option), a more convenient and discreet way to consume nicotine, or as an aid to quitting tobacco products for good and avoiding nicotine withdrawal!
Nicotine pouches use a plant-based material to replace the tobacco and often have flavourings and sweeteners.
Finding the right nicotine pouch for you
There are plenty of flavour varieties available once you find the right place to buy nicotine pouches and they are also available as both moist and dry, and in different strengths.
How do I use a nicotine pouch?
Before placing the pouch in your mouth you should make sure you have clean hands (especially during the covid-19 pandemic).
Take a pouch from the tin, place it under the top lip (between the lip and gum), to the side of your front teeth. The nicotine is absorbed through your gum.
How long will each nicotine pouch last?
Each nicotine pouch will last for around 60 minutes, it will depend on the brand, the flavour, and your personal preference how long you keep each pouch in your mouth.
The flavour may alter and the nicotine ‘buzz’ will fade the longer you use each pouch.
You may feel a slight burning, tingling, or warm sensation and this is due to the nicotine being absorbed.
Are nicotine pouches suitable for vegans?
You would need to check the ingredients and the ‘frequently asked questions’ for the brand you are purchasing to check if they are suitable for vegans.
Typically most nicotine pouches are suitable for vegans as they contain nicotine real/synthetic, plant fibres, sweeteners and flavourings.
