The number of nicotine pouches you consume daily is down to personal preference and what you are used to. In general, regular users or those switching from tobacco products will probably consume more pouches.
It’s also important to consider the nicotine content of the pouches you are using. Pouches come in different strengths, so you may need to try a range of products to find the strength that works for you.
How long the effects of a nicotine pouch last will depend on several factors including the brand, variety and strength. Additionally, it depends on the individual, their body mass, tolerance to nicotine, amongst many other factors.
In most cases, you can expect to feel the effects for about 30-45 minutes; sometimes the feeling can even last for up to 60 minutes.
Tobacco-free nicotine pouches are one of the safest ways to receive your nicotine fix. Most other products containing nicotine are conclusively linked to serious health risks, so you really need to be careful when choosing a nicotine product.
All white pouches do not contain any tobacco, a product that causes many health issues. Instead, the pouches contain plant-based fibre that is completely harmless, which makes all-white pouches the healthiest way to consume nicotine.
It’s hard to say exactly how much nicotine your body absorbs from a pouch, but you can start by checking the nicotine content per pouch or per mg of a specific product, recorded on each can.
Research shows that only a small percentage of the nicotine in any given product is absorbed by your body. In the case of nicotine pouches, your body will absorb around 30% of the nicotine content; therefore, if a pouch contains 5 mg of nicotine, your body will absorb around 1.5 mg.
If you swallow snus containing tobacco, this will upset your body and could be a reason for concern. On the other hand, the absence of tobacco in all-white pouches means you won’t need to worry if you accidentally swallow the odd pouch.
This doesn’t mean you should start swallowing all your pouches like a hungry hippo. The pouches are largely filled with harmless ingredients like plant-based filler, water, and flavourings, but they are not designed to be digested and could cause side effects if you swallow them regularly.
