Nicotine pouches – 8 things you need to know about them

Snus, despite being known for centuries in the Scandinavian countries, is gaining more and more popularity. What exactly is snus and how does it relate to the e-cigarette and e-liquid industry? You will find the answers to these and other questions regarding snus in the article below.

1. What is snus?

Traditional snus (brown snus) is a moist tobacco product popular in Scandinavia. It looks like tobacco wrapped in a cellulose bag, resembling a tiny bag of tea. Sometimes it is referred to as ‘snuff’. Traditional product is made of a mixture of dried tobacco leaves and salt, which is moistened with hot steam. The finished product contains about 50% water and should be kept in the fridge. There is also a version of it without cellulose packaging, which is called “loose snus”. Usually, snus is applied by placing between the lower or upper lip and the gum. As result nicotine from tobacco is absorbed into the body from the oral cavity. Moreover, the nicotine content in snus is higher than in a traditional cigarette.

2. Nicotine pouches (non-tobacco snus)

Nicotine pouches (white snus, or non-tobacco snus) derives from traditional, brown snus. The only difference between the two is the nicotine carrier. Tobacco snus contains tobacco leaves, while nicotine pouches are filled with cellulose. Powdered cellulose is soaked in a mixture of pure nicotine, aromas and pH-alignant (to make product pH more similar to the natural pH of the oral cavity). The mixture is additionally moistened with PG, however, the nicotine pouches are is a little dry. It means that the user may feel the nicotine effect and a taste a few seconds after placing a pouch behind a lip.

Strong criticism of experts on WHO lack of support for tobacco harm reduction methods

5 June 2020|

Due to World No Tobacco Day, WHO has launched a misleading campaign presenting tobacco harm reduction methods in a negative way. Independent experts say that without supporting less harmful methods of delivering nicotine WHO “will squander the opportunity to avoid millions of premature deaths that will be caused by smoking”*

The threaths of smoking

World No Tobacco Day was established by WHO in 1987 due to the growing number of addicts and patients with illnesses caused by smoking. The holiday is an opportunity to draw attention of the whole world to the prevalence of smoking and its negative health effects. World No Tobacco Day is also intended to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption around the world.

According to WHO data, almost 8 million people die each year due to smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke. More than 7 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke. WHO data suggests that combustible cigarettes kill up to half of its users. (more…)
