Nicotine pouches trace their origin to Sweden in the 18th century. In the quest to find an alternative to snuff and chewing tobacco, Swedish farmers packed chewing tobacco in a pouch that they put in their mouth. This product was called snus. Nicotine pouches are different from snus. They do not contain tobacco leaves but instead nicotine. Some nicotine pouches are made of tobacco-derived nicotine and some are made with synthetic nicotine. Whether you’re a cigarette smoker, vaper, tobacco chewer, or snus user, if you want to try something cleaner, nicotine pouches won’t disappoint.
NIIN Pouches is the first company to introduce synthetic nicotine pouches in the US market. The advantage of synthetic nicotine pouches is that they are free of the residuals and impurities found in tobacco-derived nicotine, like tobacco-specific nitrosamines. NIIN Pouches gets the 100% non-tobacco-derived nicotine used in its pouches from Next Generation Labs.
NIIN Nicotine pouches are available in five different flavors namely Cinnamon, Cool Mint, Citrus Chill, Spearmint, and Wintergreen. In this article, we’ll be focusing on Citrus Chill. NIIN Zero Tobacco Citrus Chill Nicotine Pouches have a sweet and slightly tart citrus flavor. It has a notable lemon flavor that is quite enjoyable.
These pouches contain a eucalyptus-derived base. The eucalyptus-base are neutral so they don’t have an effect on the flavor of your pouch. These pouches are very easy to use – you don’t have to chew on them or require any other device to use them. Simply pop one pouch into your mouth, fit it between your gum and inner lip, and leave it there for 10 to 30 minutes. You’ll know the nicotine release has started when you start to feel a tingling sensation in your mouth.
The pouches are available with either 3mg or 6mg of nicotine. The pouches measure 34mm each and are designed to be slim and comfortable in the mouth. Do not chew or swallow it. The fact that NIIN’s Nicotine Pouches are pre-moistened means they start to release nicotine into your body the moment that you pop them in your mouth. Unlike dry patches which have to be saturated in saliva before they start to release nicotine. You’ll know that the nicotine is taking effect when you start to feel a warm, tingling sensation on your lips.
NIIN Nicotine pouches come in a can with 20 pouches. You can get a can of these pouches for only $4.49 at the NIIN Pouches online store.
