Nicotine Pouch Information

nicotine pouches

Nicotine pouches (also known as mouth pieces or nasal vapes) are a new category of nicotine products. They are marketed as smokeless and tobacco-free and may not be regulated as tobacco products. They contain nicotine that is extracted from tobacco plants or made synthetically, and they can be sold in varying strengths. Most brands contain 3 or 6 milligrams of nicotine per pouch, but some have upward of 28 milligrams.URL :

These products are a new trend and are being marketed aggressively to smokers by tobacco companies. They are advertised as a new alternative to cigarettes and chewing tobacco, and they are designed to be used in public places where smoking is not allowed, such as schools or workplaces.

Nicotine Pouches vs. Traditional Tobacco: Understanding the Differences

The nicotine pouches are also promoted as a safe, easy-to-use and discreet product. They can be easily stowed away in the pockets of clothes, in purses or backpacks and are available in a range of flavors such as mint, wintergreen, coffee, and citrus. They can be popped in the mouth and swallowed without anyone else knowing, making them especially attractive to younger people and teenagers.

University Health Center medical experts and Nebraska Medicine certified tobacco treatment specialist Jill Selzle, PA, are concerned about the widespread use of these products. Nicotine pouches are not regulated the same way as tobacco or other smokeless tobacco products, and they have the potential to promote nicotine addiction. In addition, they can lead to gum and mouth irritation, and the packaging of some products poses a risk for accidental ingestion by small children.
