If you are trying to cut back on smoking but still want to get your nicotine fix, nicotine pouches are an excellent option. These smokeless pouches contain nicotine, but lack tobacco and other chemicals found in cigarettes, making them a little safer.

To get the most from the pouches, you have to use them properly. To help you out, here is how to use nicotine pouches:

Step 1: Buy the pouches

You can’t use the pouches if you don’t have them, can you? So, the first thing to do is to get the pouches. You can buy them online or from your local store.

There are plenty of brands selling the pouches at different prices and flavors, and it’s up to you to research and find the most ideal for your application.

Step 2: Insert the pouch under your upper lip

After obtaining the pouches, open the box and pick one pouch. Grab the pouch by the corner using your thumb and index finger and lift it out of the box. With your other hand, lift your upper lip so that you can place the nicotine between your lip and gums.

Adjust the pouch if necessary until you get the most comfortable fit. Most people place the pouches on the right or left, but you can place them at the center of your gums if your pouch is small.

Step 3: Keep the pouch in as long as you enjoy it

Once the pouch is in place, keep it there for as long as you want. It doesn’t take long before you start experiencing the nicotine buzz in most cases.

Different brands contain different amounts of nicotine and have different strengths, so the amount of time it takes you to experience the effect and the time it takes for the pouch to wear out is solely dependent on the brand.

Regardless of the brand, you should be able to keep your pouch for about 15 minutes to one hour.

As you are using the pouch, don’t spit as spitting is a turn-off, especially when you have people around you.

Go on with your business as usual and whenever you feel saliva filling up your mouth, swallow it—it won’t upset your stomach.

Plenty of people drink with the pouches in their mouths, so you can take beverages with your pouch in the mouth, but consider removing the pouch when eating to avoid damaging it.

Avoid swallowing the pouch as the nicotine content can upset your stomach, making you vomit.

Step 4: Dispose of the pouch

If there is no more flavor coming out of the pouch, remove the pouch from your mouth and dispose of it. Nicotine pouches are non-recyclable, so you should throw yours in the general waste. If you don’t have the disposal bin, you can store the used pouch in the top lid compartment.

Most pouch cans are recyclable as they are made from PP (polypropylene), which is accepted in most household recycling centers. Before you recycle a can, remove all the used pouches.

Pro nicotine pouch tips

  • You can use the nicotine pouches whenever smoking is prohibited, such as offices, airplanes, and restaurants but be cautious how you go about it, especially when it comes to disposing of the used pouches.
  • If traveling abroad, check if any special regulations apply to using the pouches in the country you are visiting. Remember, you don’t want to be in trouble using or disposing of the pouch.
  • In the event you feel dizzy or nauseous when using the pouch, chances are you have used too much nicotine. You should take the pouch out of your mouth and rest for a while.
  • If using the pouches to stop smoking, use pouches with low nicotine content. If you are experiencing side effects from doing this, gradually move from regular to lower nicotine content pouches.

How are nicotine pouches different from chewing tobacco or snus?

The pouches are different from tobacco, as you don’t have to chew or spit them. Instead, you put them in your mouth between your gum and upper lip, then throw them away once you are done.

Nicotine pouches are fairly similar to snus, but the key difference is pouches don’t contain tobacco. The pouches only contain nicotine, making them popular in countries where snus has been banned or is heavily regulated.

What nicotine strength should I use?

The pouches come in different strengths that vary depending on different brands. If you are a heavy smoker, start with higher strength and if the pouch feels too strong, get a lower strength.

If you aren’t a heavy smoker, get a lower strength, and if the pouch doesn’t take away your smoking craving, get higher strength.

If you want to quit smoking, always strive to get the lowest strength possible.

How often should you use a pouch?

Try to use one pouch every hour or whenever you get the urge to smoke. If you keep the pouch in your mouth for an hour, you shouldn’t need more than one pouch every hour. This means that a tin should last you 1-2 days.

Are nicotine pouches bad for your teeth?

Since you place them under the gums, there is the worry that the pouches will cause teeth staining like with cigarettes and snus. Fortunately, this isn’t the case.

Since you aren’t inhaling smoke and powder in the pouches is white, you don’t have to worry about staining or damaging your teeth in any other way.

Parting shot

Nicotine pouches are an excellent choice if you are a smoker and looking to prevent nicotine withdrawal or you are a former smoker, and you are having smoking urges, but you don’t want to go back to smoking.

If you have never smoked before, you have no business using the pouches. As mentioned above, use the pouches properly to get the most from them.

Different brands have different flavors and strengths, so you should be ready to experiment with different brands until you find the one that fits your requirements and lifestyle.
