What Are Nicotine Pouches?
Nicotine pouches, sometimes also known as nic pouches and lip pillows, are a nicotine product that contains nicotine salts (among other ingredients) that are made either by extracting the nicotine from the tobacco leaf or synthetic nicotine that is made in a lab.
Nicotine pouches were first created in Sweden (the home of classic tobacco snus) and have evolved significantly over the years. The U.S. market saw its introduction in 2014 with ZYN, followed by other brands like On!, VELO, and Lucy in 2019. By 2021, the sector of nicotine pouches had grown significantly, with expanded product ranges and increased availability to cater to nicotine pouch users across the U.S.. The market keeps growing, with brands constantly working on new innovations and new products and brands continually emerging.
How to Use Nicotine Pouches?
If you’ve already had experience snus, then you basically already know how to use nicotine pouches. However, if tobacco leaf-free nicotine pouches are new to you, follow the step-by-step on how to use pouches:
1. Open the can by breaking the seal, or simply lift the lid to open.
2. Place the pouch between the upper lip and gum.
3. Keep it parked for around 30 minutes.
4. Responsibly dispose of the used pouch in the trash or catch lid.
It's important to be aware of the potential side effects of using nicotine pouches. Nicotine pouches offer a smoke-free and tobacco-leaf free way to use nicotine: however, even without the smoke and tobacco leaf, there is still a possibility they can cause some side effects and nicotine is an addictive substance. These products are intended for adults (21+) who already use smokeless tobacco and nicotine products and should be used responsibly.
