Nicotine Pouches: Your Questions, Answered

Nicotine pouches are a relatively new addition to the tobacco-free market, but what are they and how do you use them?  Whatever brings you here, from the enticing flavours available in our range, to curiosity plain and simple, by the time you get to the bottom of this page, you will be left in no doubt about what nicotine pouches are and why they might be the best smoke free product on the market (though we may be slightly biased).

What are nicotine pouches?

Nicotine pouches are small white pouches, available in five refreshing flavours, that you pop under your top lip for up to an hour of nicotine.

Nicotine pouches are tobacco-free and inherently smoke free – efficiently delivering nicotine over time. No need to find a smoking area out in the cold, no need to pause a conversation before getting to the good bit – you can stay together, never missing a moment. With nicotine pouches, you can enjoy nicotine without smoke and crucially, without tobacco too.

How do I use nicotine pouches?

Slip a pouch under your upper lip. Wait for the ZYN tingle – and after a few minutes, you’ll enjoy up to an hour of nicotine without the need to smoke or vape. Afterwards, put the used pouch in the can’s handy compartment in the lid.

Please note that nicotine pouches are not to be chewed or swallowed, they simply rest under your lip – out of sight and out of mind.

When and where can I use nicotine pouches?

This is where the real strength of nicotine pouches lies, in our view – you can use them any time and any place. With tobacco products, your choice of where and when you can enjoy them has only gotten more limited over time. The same is even true of tobacco-free alternatives like e-cigarettes and vape pens. Even though they produce vapour and so are as smoke-free as nicotine pouches, the same rules that apply to cigarettes are often also applied to e-cigarettes and vape pens too – preventing their use on public transport, in restaurants and so on.

Now you can enjoy nicotine at your convenience. Nicotine pouches have no impact whatsoever on those around you, their discretion enables you to have nicotine in the middle of a long meeting, while tens of thousands of feet in the air on a long haul flight, even right in front of your children. No one needs to know, no single moment needs to be disrupted. Nicotine pouches make nicotine fit in with you and your lifestyle for the first time ever.

Is there any risk of using nicotine pouches?

The only thing to be aware of when enjoying nicotine pouches, is right there in the name. Nicotine pouches like ZYN contain nicotine, which is known to be highly addictive and as such should only be used by current nicotine users over 18 years of age, for recreational purposes.

In addition, given that nicotine raises the heart rate and contracts blood vessels, people with a history of cardiovascular disease should avoid all nicotine products. Their use is also not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

How do nicotine pouches compare to cigarettes?

Unlike cigarettes, nicotine pouches are smoke-free, meaning that they can be enjoyed everywhere that cigarettes cannot. In restaurants, the middle of a concert, even in the thick of a family gathering, nicotine pouches being smoke free makes them a discreet, non-disruptive way of enjoying nicotine in four refreshing flavours. And so to cut a long story short, the simple answer to the question of how nicotine pouches compare to cigarettes – they don’t.

At ZYN, we believe nicotine pouches to be the next big thing in nicotine. For us, nicotine pouches solve a problem that has needed solving for decades – delivering nicotine with a fraction of the harm caused by smoking and as a plus illuminating the disruption that so frequently comes with the enjoyment of nicotine.

With nicotine pouches, you sacrifice nothing – and after over a year of COVID-19 we welcome the greater freedom that ZYN provides. Try ZYN nicotine pouches for yourself with a free sample pack – you’ll never look back.
