What are ZYN nicotine pouches?
ZYN nicotine pouches are small pouches that are made to be popped in between the top lip and gum.
What makes ZYN different to smoking and vaping is that it’s completely smoke and tobacco-free – meaning you can use it discreetly, whenever and wherever you want, and it won’t leave you smelling of smoke or vapour.
How long can you keep ZYN nicotine pouches in your mouth for?
We recommend keeping ZYN in your mouth for up to 30 minutes, but at least 5-10 minutes.
How to use nicotine pouches
Using ZYN nicotine pouches is really straightforward – here’s how to use them in 4 simple steps:
- Break the perforated label on the can.
- Open it up and take out a nicotine pouch – popping it under your lip.
- Leave the pouch in your mouth for between 5 and 10 minutes, or up to 30 minutes.
- Discard the pouch in the waste compartment of the can once you’ve used it.
If you can feel a tingling sensation when using ZYN, don’t worry! To work effectively, ZYN also has an elevated pH level that may cause a tingle – we call it the ZYNGLE. ZYN also contains nicotine, which is a stimulant, and this may cause a similar sensation.
How long the tingling sensation lasts changes from person to person. Some people may feel a slight tingling throughout the use of the pouch, whereas others may only feel it for a few minutes.

Are ZYN nicotine pouches safe?
In short, yes ZYN nicotine pouches are safe. There are, however, restrictions on who should use ZYN and when.
Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that should only be used by people over the age of 18.
