What Are Nicotine Pouches?

Nicotine pouches are a smoke-free alternative to continued smoking. An adult user should use a pouch by placing it in the mouth for a nicotine experience. Typically, nicotine pouches do not contain tobacco. Usually, they contain nicotine extracted directly from a tobacco plant and flavorings.

How Do Nicotine Pouches Work?

Nicotine pouches are consumed orally by placing one pouch at a time in the mouth for a nicotine experience. Being an oral product, the use of nicotine pouches does not involve combustion. The absence of combustion is one key reason why an adult smoker might switch to a smoke-free product, such as nicotine pouches. Nicotine pouches do not produce smoke, smoke smell or ash.

Are Nicotine Pouches Risk-Free?

No, nicotine pouches are not risk-free and contain nicotine, which is addictive. The best decision any adult smoker can make is to quit tobacco and nicotine use altogether. Smoke-free products are not designed as cessation aids and are not alternatives to quitting.

Nicotine Pouches Compared to Snus and Chewing Tobacco

As nicotine pouches belong in the oral smokeless category, adult users may confuse them with snus and chewing tobacco. Both chewing tobacco and snus are products that are also used orally, and they often come in portions, too. However, despite the similarities, some key differences set the products apart.

In the case of snus, the biggest difference is the presence of tobacco. Nicotine pouches do not contain tobacco, whereas snus does. Subsequently, the dominant ingredient in snus is tobacco, and there is generally less variants in snus compared to nicotine pouches. Snus could also discolor teeth, while nicotine pouches may potentially leave no teeth stains. Of course, any improvement to teeth hygiene should be substantiated on a product-by-product basis.

Adult users should chew their chewing tobacco for it to work correctly - a key difference from snus. Unlike nicotine pouches, chewing tobacco - as the name suggests - also contains tobacco.

It is important to understand snus and chewing tobacco are not risk-free, and they contain nicotine, which is addictive.
