Nicotine Pouch Product and Usage Information - The Canadian Source for Tobacco-Free Nicotine Pouches




Nicotine pouches are small fabric pouches containing nicotine that are increasingly being chosen as an alternative to smoking cigarettes and cigars. Nowadays even smokers of shisha, hookah (also known as water pipe) and e-cigarettes have started using these popular pouches to satisfy their nicotine cravings without the production of smoke or vapour, making them perfect for work, air travel, time with the kids or any other circumstance in which smoking or vaping is not possible.

Nicotine bags, nicotine pouches, nicopods, chew, chew bags and all white are different names that refer to this type of product. These pouches are also often referred to as snus.

The product is originally from Sweden and is a derivative of the Swedish "snus", although improved and more importantly, there is no tobacco in nicotine pouches! 

The most frequently cited reason for using nicotine pouches is the non-combustible consumption of nicotine. You no longer have the harmful and often carcinogenic substances that are released during combustion. In addition, you are no longer a nuisance to others or need to feel embarrassed by the odours created by smoking cigarettes.


Place the pouch between your gums and upper lip. Here you let it sit quietly, until you notice that the nicotine is beginning to work. Do not chew or suck on the pouch and do not use your tongue to move the pouch around in your mouth, but wait patiently, keeping the pouch as dry as possible. It is also recommended not to swallow any saliva produced by the pouch as it will not taste very pleasant. After a few minutes you often feel a slight tingling sensation, after which the effects of the pouch can be felt quite quickly. 

The pouches do not stain your teeth and come in a wide range of flavours and strengths. The pouches contain natural fibers, fresh flavours, nicotine and a little chewing gum that softens the bags so that it fits comfortably under your lip.

The pouches are supplied in plastic containers. Usually there is a compartment in the lid or back of each container where used pouches can be stored temporarily. Always throw your used pouches in the waste bin and never on the street.


Nicotine pouches are bags of powder containing nicotine. These nicotine-derived tobacco products contain either nicotine salt or a chewing gum base. The nicotine is extracted from the nicotiana tabacum plant, but the products do not contain tobacco.
