What is nicotine pouches?

We got a letter from a customer:

Why are you buying nicotine pouches from websites that have more candy than nicotine pouches?

There are some very well known companies in Sweden that sell nicotine pouches. After half a year of searching for the one place to buy Europe region products, I found Niqopods.online

As a consumer, I have been downright disgusted with the shipping costs at other websites. Shipping is expensive. I found a website that wanted to charge me $50 USD to ship 1 can of nic pouches. Unbelievable. The sites that come up first in your Google search charge much more than they should for shipping. For example, you could spend another $25 USD to have 3 cans shipped to you not first class, just standard registered international mail.
If you don't want a hassle buying your products this is where you should be.

They sell several more brands of nic pouches that I have not seen at any other website buying five cans or more will save you more as well.
The website is easy to use. Customers are encouraged to give their honest opinion of the products they buy. Like them or not. Europe region products are much different than what is sold in North America. You will probably have to buy a few different things to find what you like best. These guys make it easy to do that.

Shop here for nicotine pouches. This is the website for grown ups. No candy here.

I will never buy from any other websites. When you find honesty, selection, and reasonable shipping. There is no reason to go elsewhere.

Say Goodbye to Harmful Chemicals: The Benefits of Nicotine Pouches over Smoking

Smoking is a habit that many people find difficult to quit, but the dangers associated with it are well known. From cancer-causing chemicals to harmful tar and carbon monoxide, smoking can have serious long-term health consequences. On the other hand, nicotine pouches offer a safer and more convenient alternative for those who want to satisfy their cravings for nicotine. In this article, we will explore the reasons why it is better to use nicotine pouches than to smoke.

  • No Harmful Chemicals: Nicotine pouches do not contain the harmful chemicals that are present in tobacco smoke. This means that users can enjoy the effects of nicotine without exposing themselves to the dangers of smoking.
  • Smoke-Free and Convenient: Nicotine pouches are easy to use and don't produce smoke, ash, or unpleasant odors. This makes them an ideal choice for people who want to enjoy nicotine in a discreet and convenient way, especially in places where smoking is not allowed.
  • Safer for Oral Health: Unlike smoking, which can cause yellowing of the teeth, bad breath, and increase the risk of gum disease, nicotine pouches do not have any negative impact on oral health.
  • Better for the Environment: Nicotine pouches are a more environmentally friendly option compared to smoking. They do not produce litter and do not contribute to air pollution.

In conclusion, nicotine pouches offer a safer and more convenient alternative to smoking. Whether you are trying to quit smoking or just want to enjoy nicotine in a more responsible way, nicotine pouches are an excellent option to consider. However, it is important to remember that nicotine is a highly addictive substance, and its use should be approached with caution.

How do I use them?

Take one (or two) pouches and put it under either side of the upper lip. After a few moments, the nicotine and flavour is released. How long the flavour lasts varies between brands, but usually 30-60 minutes. Discard the pouch in the waste compartment after use.


Why use nicotine pouches?

For most people, the main reason for using nicotine pouches is to quit smoking. The biggest advantage of switching to nicotine pouches (from burning tobacco) is that nicotine can be consumed in a harm reduced way instead of burning tobacco and absorbing the nicotine via the lungs as with cigarettes. (This is a safer way to enjoy nicotine.).

According to a studie in the US, 60% quit smoking because of health reasons. You can do it also - with the help of nicotine pouches.

Nicopods can also be used anywhere without disturbing other people to the smoke or smell from smoking.

Do nicotine pouches harm you?

Nicotine pouches contains nicotine which is an addictive substance - just like caffein and sugar. You should not use it if:
- you are allergic or sensitive to nicotine
- you are pregnant or breast-feeding
- have high blood pressure

The nicotine alone can not cause cancer, but excessive use of nicotine can lead to a higher heart rate. On the plus side, nicotine improves performance on attentionally and cognitively demanding vigilance tasks and response inhibition performance (report here).

When using nicotine pouches, you might feel a slight burn under the lip and some nausea. Flavours that contain menthol might intensify this feeling.

The advantage of using nicotine pouches is that you can consume nicotine, without exposing the airways to harmfull carbon monoxide.

This studie shows that 46% wants to quit smoking, and many smokers experience nicotine pouches to be a good replacement to cigarettes - instead of nicotine spray or nicotine plasters for instance. Royal Society for Public Health presented a studie, saying that "...nicotine is no more dangerous than the caffeine in a cup of coffee...".

Read the intervju with Dr. Charles A. Gardner, executive director of INNCO, the International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations:

“The likes of e-cigarettes, snus, and nicotine pouches can help save lives,” he exclaims. So not promoting these products to adult smokers is negligent homicide. Taxing and prohibiting them is manslaughter – if not mass murder – on a huge scale. The body bags will be quantifiable. And history will see it that way.”

Quit smoking with nicotine pouches

This is what Mitch Zeller, director of the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, said in an FDA press statement last fall: "Evidence shows these products could help addicted smokers who use the most harmful combusted products completely switch to a product with potentially fewer harmful chemicals,"

No nicotine or tobacco use at all, is preferable to any nicotine or tobacco use. But to understand how "unsafe" products can still be "safer" than cigarettes, one needs to understand the risks of smoking. Tobacco cigarettes kill at least one in two smokers on average ten years earlier than never smokers. Nine out of ten (89.7 percent) early deaths in smokers can be traced to the toxic, carcinogenic, cloud of smoke inhaled into the lungs. Cigarettes cause another 41,000 deaths in nonsmokers due to secondhand smoke.

Do I need to store them cool?

No. You do not need to keep them in the refrigerator.

What does the dots means?

The dots (or numbers) on the can is a way to measure the nicotine strength. More dots or higher number means a stronger nicotine pouch (higher level of nicotine). The strength is measured in "milligram nicotine per gram" (or sometimes milligram/pouch). Most manufacturers rates by a number or dots.

Unfortunately the number of dots is not exactly comparable between brands. But in general it means:
- 1-2 dots: regular strength around 6-8mg/g
- 3 dots: strong and around 12-14mg/g
- 4 dots and more: extra strong around 16-20mg/g

The overall experience is not dependent alone on nicotine content, but also the typ of flavours.

Do I chew on them?

No, you should not chew it. The nicotine is absorbed through the gum. Nicotine pouches is not intended to chew on – this will inhibit product performance.

What is nicotine pouches made of?

They are made of high-quality food grade ingredients, including derived nicotine, water, eucalyptus and pine tree fibres, flavouring and sweeteners. It comes in a variety of flavours and nicotine strengths. It does not contains any tobacco.

Nicotine is a naturally occurring stimulant that is extracted from the tobacco leaves. When you consume nicotine, most users experience a calming effect of well-being.

Is it like snus?

Yes and no. It's used in the same way as snus, looks similar to portion snus but does not contains tobacco.

Can I swallow the pouch?

It's intended to be used orally with no digestion. Therefore, it is not intended to be swallowed.

Any age restrictions?

Yes, we are clear this product is aimed at adult smokers and nicotine consumers and we will only sell this product to 18+ years.
