Chances are you’ve seen the little white cans residing behind the counters of shops, alongside all of the smoking and vaping paraphernalia and curiosity has probably gotten the better of you wondering what they are housed inside these little white cans.
They are Nicotine Pouches! One of the newest alternative forms for Nicotine to hit the market, and something that is fast becoming a very popular option and preferred method by ex smokers as well as e-cigarette users looking to change to a smoke/vapour free approach for Nicotine.
In this blog, I’m going to explain exactly how to use a Nicotine Pouch, as well as the benefits of using them so you’ll know what to expect when you next go to a shop and choose to buy nicotine pouches!
Choosing A Nicotine Strength That’s Right For You
Nicotine Pouches come in different Nicotine strengths which cater for individuals needs for Nicotine. They range from a low strength, to mid, to high strength and choosing the right nicotine strength is essential to ensure you get the optimal experience when using Nicotine Pouches as if you pick the wrong strength on either end of the spectrum, chances are you won’t enjoy it.
If you opt for a nicotine strength that is too low for you, then chances are your cravings for Nicotine will still be fairly rife and won’t be satisfied with the small amounts you’ve received from the Pouch. And if you opted to choose and use a nicotine strength that is too high for you, then this is going to be too overpowering for you, especially if you are not used to this amount of Nicotine and you may end up suffering from some adverse side effects which you really want to avoid.
You’ll want to pick a nicotine strength based on how many cigarettes you smoked per day, or what nicotine strength vape juice you used as this will be a good replicant of the levels of Nicotine that you’ve previously been taking on board.
If you were a light smoker of say 10 cigarettes a day, you’ll be fine with a low strength nicotine pouch like a 4mg. But if you were a heavier smoker of around 20 cigarettes a day, you’ll want to be getting your hands on the high nicotine strength Pouches as your cravings for Nicotine will be quite high, and you’ll be use to taking in higher dosages of Nicotine at a time.
It’s all about experimenting and finding what strength works best for you, and they’re relatively cheap so won’t break the bank should you need to buy different ones compared to the original ones you bought.
How To Use A Nicotine Pouch
When you get your first can of Nicotine Pouches, opening it up for the first time might feel a bit confusing with what you’ll be greeted with. Taking the lid off will present you with the sight of around 20 small white pouches, and they are the Nicotine Pouches that you’ll be using! But now what do you do with them?
The process of using them is really simple and straight forward and I’ll explain what to do with them! Take a single Nicotine Pouch out of the can, and you’ll want to put it in your mouth so it rests between the upper gum and upper lip, I normally put mine to one side and let it sit.
And that’s all you have to do as the pouch does the rest of the work! Soon as you place this in your mouth, the nicotine powder solution inside each pouch will react with the saliva from your mouth, and begin absorbing into your blood stream via the gum.
Now, a word of warning, this will give somewhat of a “tingling” sensation when the Nicotine is absorbing through your gum. This is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. The tingling will be quite mild if you’re using a lower nicotine strength, but be aware that this will heighten if you use a higher Nicotine strength!
Leave the pouch in place for around 45 minutes to 60 minutes and when you’ve had enough, take the pouch out of your mouth and dispose of it, and it’s as easy as that to use Nicotine pouches!
