If you’re new to using nicotine pouches, but you’re not sure on how to use nicotine pouches or how to store them? Well look no further as we have gathered a few tips for you, so you get the most out of your nicotine pouches and they last as long as possible for an excellent experience using nicotine pouches!
How are nicotine pouches normally packaged?
Nicotine pouches are stored in a tin with the material of the tin usually being made from plastic or metal. But 9/10 it is a plastic can that they come in.
Usually, there is a small lid on top of the can and under the lid is a small place for used nicotine pouches just in case you don’t have any place to throw away your used ones.
And once you’ve ordered from us, we ensure your cans are securely packaged and sent to your door via your chosen delivery courier!
What’s inside a nicotine pouch tin?
When you crack the lid of your tin of pouches, you’ll be greeted by the sight of individual nicotine pouches ready for you to use! The amount of pouches inside will depend on the size and nicotine strength you opted for. There will also be a separate compartment for you to dispose of your used pouches if you’re out and about and haven’t got access to a bin. Don’t be that person to leave them scattered around everywhere you go, definition of unhygienic!
How To Use A Nicotine Pouch
So you may now be getting curious to how these little white pouches work, and temptation has overcome you and you’ve got your hands on a can of white nicotine pouches, BUT, you don’t really know what to do with them. It can be confusing at first when you pick them up to know where to place them in your mouth for the optimal nicotine pouch experience, and how long you should keep them in your mouth for and so on. Well fear not, as I’m now going to explain exactly what you need to do in a simple step by step guide which you can read below;
Break the seal of your can and open it – When you get your tin of Nicotine Pouches, it will be fully sealed around the rim of the can, normally with a sticker than wraps around it. A handy tip is to pop the lid off the top of your can where you store your used Nicotine pouches, and use the edge of this small plastic disc which comes off to run around the seal of the can. This will perforate the sticker and unseal your can. Then simply apply a bit of pressure on either side of the can and the lid will pop open. Failing that, place your nail under the lip of the top of it and pop it off that way
Take a pouch out – You’ll be greeted by the site of normally around 20 nicotine pouches staring back at you. You’ll be met with the sweet aroma of whatever flavour you’ve opted to use for your Nicotine Pouches as well which is always a nice thing. Grab yourself one Nicotine pouch out, then put the lid back on and seal the can up. Last thing you want to do is leave your can without the lid on as the air can cause your Nicotine Pouches to dry out and they won’t be as pleasurable to use as the moisture will be a lot less than if they were sealed.
Put the pouch in your mouth – You’ve grabbed a pouch and sealed your can back up, so now it’s time to get the pouch into position in your mouth. Put the pouch lengthways/landscape into your mouth, ideally so it rests between your upper lip and upper gum. You can also put them between your lower gum/lip but I find it’s more comfortable having it in the upper part of my mouth. You might have to jiffle it about a bit to get it in a comfortable position, but once it is in place and comfortable, that’s it!
Leave the Nicotine to absorb – Once the pouch is in place and sitting comfortably, the Nicotine from within the pouch will begin absorbing into your blood stream via your gum. This will cause a “tingling” sensation which is perfectly normal and only lasts for the opening few minutes of putting the pouch in place. You can leave the pouch in place for 45-60 minutes before taking it out as the nicotine concentration would have depleted over this time.
Dispose of your Pouches properly – Once you’ve reached the end of the time frame mentioned above, simply take the pouch out and dispose of it. The top part on the lid of the nicotine pouch can I mentioned is specifically designed for you to store your used Nicotine Pouches if you haven’t got a bin nearby which is ideal. But if you do have a bin nearby, dispose of your pouches in there. Don’t discard them on the street or on the floor anywhere where you are for “convenience” use a bin!
Always try and keep your cans of white pouches in a cool and dry environment, so this keeps them moist and fresh as possible. Some recommend keeping them in a fridge for optimal freshness, but I don’t really think that this is necessary however, you can do if you wanted to!
