What Strength of ZYN is Right for You?

Table of friends happily enjoy ZYN nicotine pouches

ZYN nicotine pouches are smoke and tobacco-free pouches that can help you to get a discreet hit of nicotine, without having to step outside and leave a conversation.

For smokers and vapers who are looking to try a modern way to enjoy nicotine, ZYN is a smoke-free alternative that comes in a range of strengths depending on your needs.

Before using ZYN, it’s a good idea to figure out which nicotine strength is right for you – Low, Regular, Strong, or Extra Strong. The right strength will depend on a few factors, including how much you smoke or vape, and how often you do it.

To help you, we’ve put together this handy guide to help you make the right decision when choosing the strength of your ZYN nicotine pouches…

The Different Strengths of ZYN Nicotine Pouches

Although ZYN nicotine pouches are available in four tiers of strength, that only refers to the amount of nicotine included, not the intensity of flavour – that remains consistent throughout our range.

If you’re trying ZYN to help replace the nicotine you consume through cigarettes or vaping, here is a handy comparison:

How much nicotine do you consume?

Less than 5 cigarettes per day or 3mg vape strength: 1.5mg (Low)

Up to 10 cigarettes per day or 6mg vape strength: 3mg (Regular)

Around 15 cigarettes per day or 12mg and 18mg vape strength: 6mg (Strong)

Over 20 cigarettes per day or 20mg vape strength: 9mg (Extra-Strong)

What does MG stand for?

All the nicotine in ZYN pouches is measured in mg, which stands for milligram. 1mg is the equivalent to one-thousandth of a gram (0.001).

About ZYN Nicotine Pouch Strengths

Now that you know a little more about how the varying strength of ZYN compares to other nicotine consumption methods, it’s time to find out more about each tier of pouch.

1. Low

Our Low nicotine pouches hold 1.5mg of nicotine, making them our lowest strength of nicotine.

Despite this, Low strength still offers a satisfying hit of nicotine. This strength may be most suitable for those who smoke or vape infrequently. It’s great for those who are just starting out using ZYN nicotine pouches and want to determine the right strength.

Our Spearmint flavour is available in 1.5mg and offers a sweet and cool hit of mint.


Our Regular strength nicotine pouches are made with 3mg of nicotine. To put this into context, a regular cigarette contains around 10-12mg of nicotine, with around 1.1-1.8mg of this being inhaled. Smoking a cigarette only lasts a few minutes though, so your hit of nicotine is a much shorter burst. In contrast, ZYN nicotine pouches can last 30 minutes, and you don’t lose any of the 3mg that our Regular strength pouches contain.

Regular strength ZYN nicotine pouches are suitable for those who are just starting out and want to find the right strength for them, and for people who smoke more regularly than social smokers, but less frequently than more experienced nicotine users.

Our Regular 3mg nicotine pouches are available in Espressino, Cool Mint, Citrus and Bellini flavours.



Our Strong nicotine pouches contain 6mg of nicotine, which is steadily delivered for up to 30 minutes. Strong nicotine pouches are designed to provide and alternative for those who regularly inhale nicotine, or for situations where inhalation smoking or vaping isn’t possible.

Espressino, Cool Mint, Citrus and Bellini nicotine pouches are all available with our Strong serving of 6mg of nicotine.


Extra Strong

This is our strongest nicotine pouch, featuring 9mg of nicotine. Our Extra Strong nicotine pouch is made for people who want an intense dose of nicotine, usually someone who today is a highly experienced nicotine consumer.

Which Strength of Nicotine Pouch is Best for You?

Finding the right strength of nicotine pouch for you depends on how experienced you are as a nicotine user.

This could be how frequently you smoke or vape, or what products you use – that will guide you on how much nicotine you’re typically used to.

For example, if you vape low-nicotine juice, a milder product is better to try. If you are vaping 20mg/ml you may want to explore our stronger nicotine pouch offering.
