There is a difference between a snus pouch and a nicotine pouch. A snus pouch is a small pouch that contains tobacco leaves. You insert it under your top lip over your top gums. This gradually releases nicotine from the tobacco leaves over time. Snus is spit-free, is not smoked and is very discreet. Nicotine pouches are basically the same concept and are also oral portion bags that are inserted in the mouth to deliver nicotine through the gums. However, the main difference is that a nicotine pouch does not contain tobacco. So why use nicotine pouches over snus? Let’s find out.
Why use nicotine pouches?
To compare nicotine pouches vs snus, let us first take a look at the ingredients of both. With a nicotine pouch, the ingredients consist of nicotine salt. Nicotine is extracted from the Nicotiana tabacum plant and then crystallized into nicotine salt. The tobacco plant itself is not in the pouch. The result is that the nicotine pouch is free of tobacco leaves or roots of any form. The advantage that the nicotine pouch has over snus is that the nicotine pouch and its ingredients are normally all white. This means that your teeth will not become stained as happens with some snus products.
Nicotine pouches are tobacco free
Another advantage of using a tobacco-free product like nicotine pouches, is that they do not have that runny tobacco taste that many users steer clear of. Another advantage that we see that a nicotine pouch has over the snus pouch is that a nicotine pouch has an extended shelf life. This results in the nicotine pouch being able to be enjoyed for a lot longer than the typical snus pouch. These tobacco-free nicotine pouches are also available to order in a wide range of flavours and nicotine strengths. There is a product for each customer to satisfy his or her individual tastes and preferences.
