About nicotine pouches
What are nicotine pouches?
Nicotine pouches are also called tobacco-free snus, nicopods, all-white snus, all-white, and much more, and is a tobacco-free oral nicotine product similar to traditional Swedish snus. Nicotine pouches come in repacked pouches that are placed between the gum and the upper lip. Once there, the pouch releases nicotine and flavor into the mouth.
Nicotine pouches are all-white and therefore do not discolor the teeth. They are a convenient and discreet way to get your nicotine and can be used anytime, anywhere. Just pop in a pouch and enjoy. Since nicotine pouches are 100% smoke-free, they are a much healthier alternative to smoking.
Nicotine pouches are made with plant fiber, nicotine, and various aromas. Nicotine pouches are designed to drip minimally and to be spit-free. They are placed under the lip for 10 to 50 minutes or for as long as you like and then discarded.
Which nicotine strengths are there?
Nicotine pouches exist in a wide selection of different flavors to cater to everyone’s wants and preferences. The lowest nicotine strength is generally classified as ”low” and have a strength of 2-4 mg of nicotine per pouch. The strongest nicotine pouches are classified as ”super strong”, ”extra strong”, ”hyper strong”, or similar, and can contain 30-50 mg of nicotine or even higher than that. The super-strong nicotine pouches are only recommended for people who regularly use nicotine pouches.
If you are new to nicotine pouches, strengths between 2 to 4mg are a good option. If you want stronger options, you’ll find that most nicotine pouches are between 8 to 12mg of nicotine per pouch. Some users like to change things up and use different strengths throughout the day depending on their mood and activities.

Nicotine pouches are divided into these categories:
0.1-6mg/g nicotine: Light/low (1/4 or 1/4 or with a five-grade scale)
7 - 9.9 Mg/g nicotine: Normal nicotine strength (2/4 or 3/4 or with a five-grade scale)
10-15mg/g nicotine: Strong: (3/4 or with a five-grade scale)
15.1-35mg/g nicotine: Extra strong/Super strong (4/4 or 5/5)
The nicotine strength may be indicated as mg nicotine per pouch or nicotine per gram. It is therefore important to note what the nicotine strength refers to in order to understand the correct difference in strength between different nicotine pouches.
Also, the perceived nicotine strength in nicotine pouches vary depending on several factors and not only the nicotine content.
One of the most prominent factors is the taste of the pouch, along with its moisture content. A higher moisture level results in greater nicotine absorption. Thus, even though a dry pouch may contain more nicotine, it might not be perceived as strong as a moist nicotine pouch, which is not labeled as "strong."
Compared to traditional tobacco snus, nicotine pouches tend to be drier, allowing for more nicotine to be present. However, not all of the nicotine is absorbed, and the level of absorption is dependent on the moisture level of the pouch. Only around 10-20% of the nicotine in a pouch is typically absorbed.
The pH value of the pouch also plays a crucial role in the nicotine absorption rate. A higher pH level increases nicotine absorption. Additionally, the shape of the pouch can influence its strength classification. For instance, a slim pouch may contain a similar amount of nicotine as a mini-sized pouch classified as "Strong" or "Extra Strong." However, the concentration of nicotine in each pouch is greater as the pouches come in a mini format.
Lastly, the frequency and duration of snus usage can affect the perceived nicotine content. Experienced users might opt for stronger pouches to achieve the same effect, while novice users may feel that "light" pouches with a lower nicotine content are strong.
What flavors are there?
Nicotine pouches exist in a wide selection of different flavors. There are thousands of different flavors for nicotine pouches, ranging from the most common flavor mint to more exotic flavors like cola, passionfruit, or candy. In short, there is a nicotine pouch flavor to suit everyone’s tastes and preferences. This also allows you to mix and match flavors depending on your mood and what you eat and drink.
The taste experience of nicotine pouches is characterized by its purity and freshness. Thanks to the use of plant fiber which is tasteless compared to tobacco, manufacturers have more creative freedom in terms of flavors. The absence of tobacco in nicotine pouches allows for a vast range of flavor options.
Mint is the most popular flavoring for nicotine pouches. VELO Ice Cool Strong is a prime example of a highly sought-after mint flavor. Menthol's cooling effect provides a cooling taste and a tingling sensation that provides a refreshing sensation that lasts for a long time.

What is the difference between Swedish tobacco snus and nicotine pouches?
Swedish snus and nicotine pouches are two smokeless options that possess numerous similarities. Nicotine pouches are a product development of the traditional Swedish snus whose history goes back to the 1800s in Sweden. The key difference between nicotine pouches and snus is that nicotine pouches are completely free from tobacco and instead use plant fiber with added nicotine. Nicotine pouches are used in the exact same way as snus and come in a proportioned format which is placed under the upper lip between the gum. Nicotine pouches are smoke-free and the nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream via the mucous membranes in the mouth.
Due to its tobacco-free and smoke-free nature, nicotine pouches are perceived as a more fresh and more modern nicotine alternative than tobacco and smoke alternatives. Nicotine pouches are completely free of tobacco unlike traditional snus, with the exception of nicotine, and do not contain any other substances derived from the tobacco plant. Additionally, nicotine pouches have longer shelf life compared to Swedish snus. There is a significant contrast between traditional tobacco snus and nicotine pouches in terms of flavors. Nicotine pouches can be flavored more effortlessly without tobacco thanks to the use of tasteless plant fiber, leading to a vast assortment of flavors. There are numerous options to choose from, ranging from timeless flavors like mint and citrus to more contemporary blends such as jalapeno or even candy and cola flavors.
How to use nicotine pouches?
Using nicotine pouches is simple. Just open the can, take a pouch and place it on either side of the upper lip between the gum and the lip. Use the nicotine pouch for between 10 to 60 minutes or for as long as you please. When you are done, just discard the nicotine pouch. Whenever you feel like another refreshing kick, take another pouch.
How do I choose nicotine pouches?
Selecting the perfect nicotine pouch from the numerous amazing options available can be overwhelming. However, there are a few factors you should consider before making your choice. First and foremost, you should consider the strength of the nicotine. It is vital to avoid selecting a pouch that is too strong, as it can be an unpleasant experience. At the same time, it is important to not pick a nicotine pouch that is too weak if you are used to nicotine pouches.
Another essential aspect to consider is your taste and preference during different times. This is influenced by both the flavor and format. For example, in the morning, you may feel like a stronger nicotine pouch to give you a nicotine buzz. During the day, you may prefer a normal strength nicotine pouch with a fresh taste. In the evening, you may be looking for something fresh and fruity.
A lot of people keep several options nearby so that they can switch between them depending on what they feel like at the moment. For instance, pouches with a discreet format such as slim or mini are an excellent choice for work as they offer a discreet and refreshing experience. However, for use at home or in a bar, some people may prefer larger pouches containing a stronger nicotine dose. Budget is also an important factor to consider when selecting a nicotine pouch. Although nicotine pouches are relatively cheap compared to other nicotine alternatives, it is still good to keep cost in mind. Check out different brands and their pricing to shop within your budget. Flavor is important to consider as everyone has different tastes but also may like to have different flavors during different times throughout the day.
