Why Choose Different Nicotine Strengths?

Selecting the right nicotine strength is crucial for an enjoyable experience for nicotine pouch users. By choosing the appropriate nicotine strength, you ensure a satisfying and tailored snus experience. Whether you prefer a lower strength or a higher strength for a more intense experience, Northerner UK has you covered. Normal strength offers a balanced experience, strong snus provides a noticeable boost, and extra strong snus delivers an intense effect.

How Much Nicotine is Right for You?

Determining how much nicotine is right for you can be straightforward with a bit of maths. Calculate the milligrams of nicotine per pouch to find your ideal strength. This can be easily done by multiplying the nicotine content per gram by the pouch weight. Keep in mind that if you experience dizziness, nausea, or an increased heart rate, opt for a lower strength.
