Q: What is a nicotine/nicotine-free pouch?

A: Nicotine pouches are packaged very much like snus. The big difference between snus and a nicotine pouch is that the latter does not contain any tobacco. Instead the pouch contains other plant-based materials to get the texture and substance, along with nicotine which has been carefully filtered and extracted from the tobacco. In this way users can enjoy the exact same experience as snus, but 100% with no tobacco. Nicotine-free pouches go one step further offering just flavours alone. Both pouch types will also come with a range of flavours.

Q: How do you use a nicotine/nicotine-free pouch?
