What Are Zyn Nicotine Pouches?

Zyn is a popular brand of nicotine pouches that come in a variety of flavours, sizes and strengths to suit different preferences. Zyn nicotine pouches, also sometimes referred to as Zyn Snus, are small pouches filled with nicotine salt, food-grade fillers and flavourings. The pouches are placed under the upper lip, where the nicotine and flavour is slowly released for the user to enjoy. Zyn offers a discreet and convenient way to consume nicotine without tobacco, smoke, or vaping.

What Zyn Nicotine Strengths are there?

Zyn nicotine pouches are available in different nicotine strengths, represented by the amount of nicotine in milligrams (mg) per pouch. The strength refers to the nicotine content, not the intensity of the flavour. The available strengths vary depending on the format:

Zyn Mini Dry pouches:

  • - 6mg

Zyn Slim pouches:

  • - 6mg
  • - 9.5mg
  • - 11mg
  • - 12.5mg


The slim format has a wider range of strengths to choose from compared to the mini dry pouches. This allows users to find their ideal nicotine level more precisely.

What does mg mean in relation to nicotine strength?

Mg is the abbreviation for milligrams. All the nicotine in Zyn pouches is measured in mg, which represents one-thousandth of a gram (0.001g). So a 6mg pouch contains 0.006 grams of nicotine. The mg number on the can tells you how much nicotine is in each individual pouch.

What happens when you use ZYN nicotine pouches?

We recommend keeping Zyn in your mouth for up to 30 minutes for the full effect, but you will start to notice the nicotine release much sooner. 

Here is a timeline of what to expect:

  • - 0-1 minute: The pouch is moistening and the nicotine is beginning to activate. You may not feel the effects quite yet.
  • - 5 minutes: The nicotine salt is now fully activated and starting to be absorbed into your bloodstream. Many users report a tingling or mild burning feeling in the gum at this time. This is normal and will subside.
  • - 10 minutes: At this point, most of the nicotine has been absorbed and any cravings should be satisfied. The flavor and nicotine will continue to release for up to 30 more minutes.
  • - 30 minutes: The nicotine has reached its peak level in the bloodstream. This is typically when users will remove the pouch, though some keep it in longer.

Discover which Zyn Strength is right for you

Choosing the right Zyn nicotine strength depends on your previous experience with nicotine products and your current usage. If you are used to consuming a lot of nicotine through frequent smoking or high-strength vaping, you will likely prefer the stronger Zyn options. But if you only smoke occasionally or use less nicotine in your vape juice, the regular strength pouches are a better starting point. 

Here is a general guide to help match your usage to the ideal Zyn strength:

  • - Up to 10 cigarettes per day or 6mg vape: 3mg (Regular)
  • - Around 15 cigarettes per day or 12-18mg vape: 4-6mg (Strong)
  • - Over 20 cigarettes per day or 20mg+ vape: 9mg+ (Extra Strong)

Of course, personal preference also plays a role. Some users prefer a stronger nicotine hit even with low usage, while others prefer to keep the strength lower despite smoking more. It may take some experimentation to find the ideal level for you.
