What are Nicotine Pouches?
Nicotine Pouches are simply a tobacco-free substitute that one can easily put under the lip instead of smoking or vaping. Nicotine pouches are white and the pouches do not stain the user’s teeth. They consist of fillers, natural fibres, nicotine, and pleasant flavours to deliver amazing taste and strong nicotine release.
Discreet nicotine pouches can be used anywhere at home or in public without exposing people in that environment to vapour or secondary smoke. Nicotine pouches also do not cause tooth discolouration. They can also be used inside, and don’t require the user to go out for a vape or smoke.
Origin of Nicotine Pouches
The tobacco pouch has been part of Swedish culture for quite some time. The use of pouches increased when Swedish farmers found a way to mix salt and water with tobacco leaves in their coffee grinders. What they got was a tobacco mixture with a pleasant taste that they could use while working.
As society has moved into the 21st century the side effects of tobacco became more obvious. As a result, Swedish dealers experienced an increased demand for nicotine usage without any side effect. The issue of tobacco discolouration of teeth has also been a sore point for many tobacco users.
The New Version Of Tobacco
Another breakthrough came when nicotine was separated from tobacco leaves using an advanced heating method. The result of this breakthrough was the white discrete nicotine that users could use and enjoy without side effects. Nicotine pouches have experienced rapid growth as users see it as a great replacement for a cigarette.
