With Nicotine Pouches still being relatively new onto the market, there’s still a lot of unanswered questions which people may be unsure of the answer to, and it can be a bit confusing finding a “definitive” answer for these questions. Well that’s what this blog is all about as I am to give a clear and concise answer to the question of this blog.
The question itself is a bit of an open ended one and actually has a couple of different answers which we will explore in this blog and find the answer out to. To give a quick answer to the question in topic, Nicotine Pouches normally last around 45 minutes to 60 minutes depending how strong the nicotine content is inside the pouch you use. But let’s delve into this question in more detail!
How Long Do Nicotine Pouches Last For?
When you buy Nicotine Pouches online, they have a recommended “usage time” and that time is normally anywhere from 45-60 minutes. It’s completely up to you as the user of them how long you want to keep the pouches in for. They work as a gradual slow release of Nicotine that is absorbed through the gum, so if you want to get the full length experience of the absorption, keep the pouch in place to the top of the recommended time and you’ll reap the full benefits.
This time frame is merely a guide though, and it’s completely up to you how long you keep your Nicotine Pouch in place for, some people may prefer a lesser time which I personally do and tend to lean towards the 30-45 minute window as I only use them periodically through the day.
It also comes down to how comfortable you find having them in place for as well. They’re purposefully designed to be soft and comfortable when they’re resting in between your gum and upper lip, but after a period of time they may become a bit uncomfortable so you can take them out and dispose of them at this point.
It’s not only the nicotine absorption which you will be enjoying throughout your time using a nicotine pouch either, as if you opt for a fruity or mint flavour Nicotine Pouch, this flavour will be long lasting throughout which you can enjoy for the duration!
How Long Do Nicotine Pouches Last Before They Expire?
One of the main benefits of Nicotine Pouches is that the powdered Nicotine solution doesn’t have an expiry date!
The Nicotine that’s used in Nicotine Pouches is a synthetic powder that’s been made specifically for Nicotine Pouches, and Nicotine doesn’t have an expiry date regardless of the form it’s in so you can keep your can of Nicotine Pouches for as long as you want!
But the thing to note is that Nicotine Pouches can lose flavour over time, as well as moisture also, and these two things are crucial when it comes to Nicotine Pouches and making sure that when you use them, they are an enjoyable experience, so it’s best to keep this in mind when you’re keeping your cans of Nicotine Pouches stashed away.
Keep your Nicotine Pouches stored somewhere cool, and try and avoid storing them in warm and/or humid places.
How Will I Know When A Nicotine Pouch Is Finished?
As I mentioned at the top of this article, Nicotine Pouches normally last for around 45-60 minutes, and it’s during this time frame that you should consider taking your Nicotine Pouch out and dispose of it. And it’s in this time that you will be experiencing the full effects of the nicotine absorbing and also the flavour being released from within the pouch as well.
You’ll know when a Nicotine Pouch is reaching the end of it’s life as you won’t be feeling the full effects of the Nicotine absorbing, and also the flavour won’t be as strong either so this is a clear indicator that you’re reach the end of the Nicotine Pouch lifespan.
When it gets to this point, simply take the Nicotine Pouch out of your mouth, dispose of it correctly (not just chucking it on the ground if you’re out and about) and then give yourself a little break before putting another Nicotine Pouch in and starting the cycle again.
Why Should I Have A Break Between Using Nicotine Pouches?
This is merely recommendation from myself, and it’s completely up to you what you do with using your Nicotine Pouches but I always say to give yourself a good 30-45 minute break between using Nicotine Pouches.
This is simply to avoid overdoing it with the nicotine intake, as if you do this, you could be facing some adverse side effects that you really don’t want.
They’re nothing major, nor are they long lasting, they’re very short term side effects but just not very pleasant. If you consume too much Nicotine in a short space of time, you may start to feel nauseous which is where the term “nic sick” is coined from. You may also feel light headed/dizzy, have a bit of a headache, and just not feel right, but do not panic, as this is short term and easily reversable.
Nicotine is a highly addictive chemical, but it is not harmful at all. You can check out this link which explains the possible side effects which could happen if you overdo it with Nicotine consumption, so just be sure to take care when using Nicotine Pouches!
Just ensure that you leave enough time between using Nicotine Pouches, like my recommended time of 30-45 minutes, and even leaving it an hour wouldn’t be a bad thing either, this way you can ensure that you won’t be overdoing it and get to enjoy the full benefits of Nicotine Pouches and not making yourself feel ill!
