Length of use per pouch
The regular (and most commonly used) nicotine pouches tend to contain about 8 mg of nicotine but, of course, it is possible to buy nicotine pouches that contain both higher or lower nicotine levels. Interestingly, less than half of the nicotine is absorbed into your bloodstream during use. In fact, these absorption levels tend to remain around 10-20% of the nicotine present in the pouch. So, even if you prefer a product with a higher dose of nicotine – say 10 mg – you are only consuming 1-2 mg of nicotine per portion. This gives you a nice sense of control over your own consumption and allows you to adjust your choice of product accordingly.
It has also been recorded that the majority of the nicotine absorption occurs during the first 10 minutes of placing the nicotine pouch under your lip, after which it slows down and levels out. However, the body does continue to absorb nicotine for the entire duration that the pouch remains in your mouth, while the nicotine lingers in your bloodstream even after the product has been removed. Therefore, it is recommended that users should only use each nicotine pouch for approximately 20 minutes, in order to limit their nicotine intake – which should be fine as you'll continue to enjoy the remaining nicotine boost.
Please remember to always remove the nicotine pouch from your mouth and throw it in the bin. Make sure to not swallow it, as the nicotine absorption will continue in your stomach, and may cause some unwanted side effects in the long run – especially if you make swallowing a habit!
