What is Dissolvable Tobacco?

Dissolvable tobacco is a term for a type of smokeless tobacco product that is designed to dissolve or disintegrate in the mouth. It is typically available in the form of strips, sticks, or lozenges that are made from finely ground tobacco and other ingredients. Dissolvable tobacco provides a nicotine delivery method orally, with the nicotine being absorbed through the oral mucosa. 


Dissolvable Tobacco Products

In the USA, there have been various types of dissolvable tobacco products available over time, although the availability and popularity of dissolvable tobacco products has declined in recent years. Some of the most common types of dissolvable tobacco products include:


  • Dissolvable Tobacco Strips. These are thin, flavored strips that contain finely ground tobacco and are designed to dissolve in the mouth.


  • Dissolvable Sticks. These are small sticks or toothpick-like products that are made from tobacco and other ingredients. They are meant to be placed in the mouth, where they slowly dissolve.


  • Dissolvable Lozenges. These are small, hard lozenges that contain tobacco and are consumed by allowing them to dissolve in the mouth.


How to Use Dissolvable Tobacco Products

How you use dissolvable tobacco products will vary depending on if you choose dissolvable tobacco strips, dissolvable lozenges or dissolvable sticks. However, using dissolvable tobacco products typically involves the following steps:


1. Choose the Product. Pick the dissolvable tobacco product of your choice, such as strips, sticks, or lozenges.


2. Open the Packaging. Carefully open the packaging of the dissolvable tobacco product, making sure to follow the instructions on the packaging or from the manufacturer.


3. Put the Product in Your Mouth. Take a strip, stick, or lozenge and place it in your mouth. Position it between your cheek and gum or under your tongue, depending on the product (you can usually check the instructions provided on the packaging or from the manufacturer).


4. Allow the Product to Dissolve. Let the dissolvable tobacco product slowly dissolve in your mouth. Do not chew or swallow it whole, as the purpose is to allow the tobacco and flavorings to be absorbed gradually.


5. Follow Time Recommendations. Use the product for the recommended duration. Some dissolvable tobacco products suggest a specific time for dissolution, while others can be used until completely dissolved.


Dissolvable Tobacco vs Dissolvable Nicotine

While the popularity of dissolvable tobacco products has been decreasing, there is still some demand from nicotine users for dissolvable nicotine products. The main difference between dissolvable tobacco products vs dissolvable nicotine products is tobacco: dissolvable nicotine products contain tobacco-leaf free or synthetic nicotine, whereas dissolvable tobacco products contain tobacco. 


Dissolvable Nicotine Products

Dissolvable nicotine products offer a tobacco-leaf free alternative to dissolvable tobacco products that deliver nicotine without the need for combustion or smoke. These products are designed to be dissolved in the mouth, allowing nicotine to be absorbed through the oral mucosa.
There are different types of dissolvable nicotine products available, including:


  • Nicotine Lozenges. These are small tablets that dissolve slowly in the mouth, releasing nicotine. They come in various flavors and strengths.


  • Nicotine Gum. Nicotine gum is chewed gently until it softens and then you place it between the cheek and gum to allow nicotine absorption through the lining of the mouth.


  • Nicotine Mints. Nicotine-infused mints are designed to dissolve in the mouth, releasing nicotine.

How to Use Dissolvable Nicotine

How you use dissolvable nicotine products, much like how you use dissolvable tobacco, will vary depending on the type of dissolvable nicotine product you choose. However, using dissolvable nicotine products typically involves the following steps:


1. Choose the Product. Select the dissolvable nicotine product that suits your preferences, whether you choose to buy nicotine lozenges and tablets, or nicotine mints.


2. Read the Instructions. Carefully read the packaging and instructions provided with the product. Pay attention to the recommended dose, how often you can use the product, and any other special product-specific guidelines.


3. Park the Product. If you choose lozenges, tablets or mints, simply place the product in your mouth and allow it to dissolve slowly. If you use nicotine gum, chew it until it softens, and then park it between your cheek and gum.


4. Allow the Product to Absorb. Keep the product in your mouth without swallowing or chewing excessively to allow the nicotine to be absorbed through the oral mucosa (also known as the lining of your mouth). Make sure to follow the recommended duration specified in the product instructions.


5. Dispose of the Product. If you have a product you need to dispose of after the recommended time has passed, make sure to dispose of it responsibly in the trash.
