More About XQS

Insurgent Ventures II created XQS back in 2005, initially focussing on nicotine-free products before branching into tobacco-free nicotine pouches due to popular demand. The brand's innovative spirit is deeply rooted in Swedish culture – starting off in the woods of northern Jämtland before taking on the world with their all-white pouches!


What is XQS?

The story behind the XQS name is unclear, but some people have speculated that it stands for "excuse" – whether it's an excuse to stop a smoking habit or just an excuse to indulge in a flavoursome pouch. The brand sets itself apart through unique flavours that you won't find anywhere else.

How many pouches are in a can of XQS?

You can count on every can of XQS containing 20 Slim pouches. The cans are a convenient, pocket-friendly size and there is even a compartment in the lid for you to dispose of used pouches in. 

How long does XQS last?

The length of time you leave one of these snus in your mouth will vary from person to person, but, as a general rule, you can expect 20-30 minutes of sustained flavour and nicotine release from an XQS pouch. Of course, there is no harm in removing the pouch earlier (we suggest a minimum of 5 minutes) or later (no more than 60 minutes to maintain freshness).
