Sales of nicotine pouches globally are anticipated to continue growing especially in the US with the market projected to reach US$ 5.5 billion by 2031 from US$ 3.6 billion in 2022. Analysis indicates that the market for nicotine pouches doubled between 2020 and 2021 in some European countries including Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Slovakia and the United Kingdom. Similarly in the Philippines, nicotine pouches are gaining popularity with many smokers now looking for alternatives to traditional cigarettes.
The interest in nicotine pouches is widely attributed to its discreet delivery of nicotine, allowing smokers and vapers to enjoy nicotine in places where smoking and vaping are not allowed.
Nicotine Pouches are still a relatively new product compared to other nicotine delivery systems. The pouch was introduced to the UK market in 2010 and is inspired from the Swedish Snus, an oral tobacco product that is also placed in the upper lip that comes in either loose or portioned pre-packaged pouches. In contrast with Swedish-style snus, Nicotine Pouches are tobacco-free.
What is a Nicotine Pouch?
A nicotine pouch is a small white pouch that delivers nicotine through the gums. The pouch is held between the lip and the gum and is absorbed through the membrane. Unlike vapor and heated tobacco products which involve inhalation through the lungs, the nicotine pouch user simply places the nicotine pouch under his or her upper lip. It can be used anywhere as there is no smoke or vapor associated with the pouch.
The nicotine in the pouch comes from medical-grade nicotine, with options for strength-level and flavors.
It eliminates combustion from the equation.
Most tobacco products rely on heat to deliver a dose of nicotine either by igniting it or heating it. There are many risks involved when it comes to absorbing nicotine through the lungs. The nicotine pouch removes combustion while providing the same satisfaction.
No second-hand smoke
One of the benefits of using a nicotine pouch is that there is no need to worry about second-hand smoke when using a nicotine pouch. Since there is no heat involved, the pouch is an excellent choice in areas where smoking is not permissible.
It’s becoming more and more of a challenge to find places to smoke. With all these regulations in place, it’s much easier to take a nicotine pouch to augment cigarette use. Users can benefit from the convenience of being able to do their work and go about their day without cravings.
Easy to carry around.
Pouches come in easy-to-store packaging and portability with nicotine pouches placed inside a tin cannister that can be easily slipped into a pocket or a bag. The cannister contains 20 packets of nicotine pouches. Some brands also offer nicotine pouches in sachets, offering a new way of enjoying nicotine whenever and wherever.
While snus and nicotine pouches are both products that can be consumed through the mouth, nicotine pouches do not require spitting like snus. That means no spit bottle or other accessories. The pouch does not produce harmful residue that must be expelled.
Nicotine Pouches don’t stain user’s teeth
Unlike most tobacco products, the nicotine pouch has no color, just flavor. There is no smoke and there is no residue that sticks to teeth which means no unsightly stains.
There are many benefits to the nicotine pouch. It can complement a smoking habit, helping smokers get through long days without disruptions. Also with a nicotine pouch, the risks and irritations associated with vapor or smoke are eliminated.
Many brands have now been made available locally. One of which is Nordic Spirit, one of the most popular nicotine pouch brands in the UK.
Nicotine Pouches like Nordic Spirit, On!, and Rouge offer varying flavors and nicotine stengths to suit one’s preference.
Those who are seeking a convenient and discreet way to consume nicotine have a brand-new option to augment their cigarettes and vapes. This pouch is a viable addition to the catalog of nicotine products in the Philippines.
