Nicotine Pouches: A Convenient, Smoke-Free Alternative

by UKVS Staff 12 Feb 2024

With more people than ever putting down the cigarettes or reducing their vaping habits, nicotine pouches have rapidly emerged as a popular alternative. A recent study has shown that nicotine pouch usage has more than doubled in the last two years, and we expect this to continue to grow. If you’re one of the many people starting the new year ‘smoke-free’ a switch to nicotine pouches could help you on your journey. Let’s take a look at ‘nic pouches’ and how they’re used. 

What are Nicotine Pouches?

Nicotine pouches have emerged as an increasingly popular choice due to their convenience, discreetness, and smoke-free nature. These small, white pouches contain synthetic nicotine or nicotine extracted from the tobacco plant, combined with a mix of plant-based materials, flavourings, and pH adjusters. The pouches are designed to release nicotine gradually when placed under the user's upper lip, ensuring a controlled and satisfying experience without the typical side effects associated with smoking.

What is Snus?

The origins of nicotine pouches can be traced back to a popular Swedish tobacco product called Snus. Snus, which means "snuff" in Swedish, traditionally consists of moist tobacco placed under the lip or inside the cheek. However, with advancements in manufacturing techniques, tobacco-free pouches were created to accommodate individuals who sought an alternative to traditional Snus. 

How to Use Nicotine Pouches

Using nicotine pouches is straightforward and hassle-free. Let’s take a closer look at how to get the most out of each pouch. 

Choose the Right Strength: Nicotine pouches come in various strengths, ranging from mild to strong. Beginners may prefer starting with lower nicotine content and gradually increasing the strength if desired.

Prepare the Pouch: Remove the pouch from its container, ensuring clean and dry hands. Gently rub the pouch to activate the nicotine within.

Place the Pouch: Move your head forward and position the pouch between your upper lip and gum. Rest the pouch either in the middle or towards the side of the mouth, depending on your preference.

Enjoy! Allow the nicotine to be released gradually by leaving the pouch under your lip for around 15-30 minutes, experiencing a steady nicotine release that satisfies your cravings.

Dispose of the Pouch: Once the pouch runs out, remove it from your mouth and discard it responsibly. Avoid reusing pouches for hygiene reasons.

Are Nic Pouches Better than Smoking?

We recommend nic pouches as a way to stop smoking; however, it is important to understand the benefits of these pouches and how they work before making the switch. 

  1. Harm Reduction: Nicotine pouches deliver nicotine without the harmful effects of combustion, eliminating exposure to toxic chemicals found in cigarettes, contributing to improved oral health, and reducing risks associated with lung diseases.
  1. Convenience and Discretion: Nicotine pouches can be used discreetly, providing users with a smoke-free and odourless solution. This convenience allows individuals to enjoy a nicotine fix in various settings where smoking is restricted.
  1. Increased Control: Nicotine pouches offer a regulated nicotine experience, releasing controlled doses and eliminating the urge to finish a cigarette. This controlled release helps users limit their nicotine consumption, ultimately helping users quit nicotine altogether.
  1. Flavour Varieties: Nicotine pouches come in various flavours, from traditional mint and citrus to unique dessert blends, catering to individual preferences and providing an enjoyable experience.

If you’re ready to try nicotine pouches, we fully recommend purchasing from a legitimate retailer such as UK Vape Supply. Our range of nic pouches includes varieties from leading brands such as Elf Bar and Pablo; shop the full collection today or contact a member of our team to find out more.
