All you need to know about nicotine pouches
Nicotine pouches are white pre-packed, tobacco-free nicotine substitutes that are used instead of smoking. They can be used discreetly, you just place a pouch between your upper or lower lip and gum, then feel the flavoured nicotine substance slowly dissolve in your mouth. You don’t have to worry about stained teeth because the pouches are white. Smoking is not required and no combustion is involved. After the flavoured nicotine has finished, you just discard the pouch into a waste bin. The pockets of nicotine are being used like chewing tobacco, but the contents in the nicotine pouch stay inside during use, so users do not need to spit.
Benefits of nicotine pouches
First of all, what is nicotine? Nicotine is a natural stimulant extracted from the tobacco plant. This does not mean nicotine pouches contain tobacco essentially. In fact, nicotine pouches are mostly tobacco free pouches that are consumed without combustion. The major benefit of nicotine pouches is that you can consume the same amount of nicotine – in a less harmful way – that you consume using cigarettes or vaporizers, which could be harmful to the lungs of its users. It is also safer to use a nicotine pouch in a public place because it does not expose your environment to damaging second-hand smoke.
Usage of nicotine pouches
The usage of nicotine pouches is simple and less harmful compared to smoking. Though, no study has established whether some smokers completely quit smoking and switched to nicotine pouches or if they are used simultaneously. Generally, nicotine pouches cost about the same as regular cigarette products, they do not require smoking accessories or batteries. The inconspicuous usage of nicotine pouches may be a turn on for youths and young adults who are non-smokers because of its smokeless nature and its availability in different flavours. Nicotine pouches can be used as a replacement mechanism or therapy for those who want to quit smoking.
