How to Use Nicotine Pouches: The Basics
Where should I put my nicotine pouch? How do I start using nicotine pouches? There are 4 simple steps to get started with nicotine pouches. (If you need more information on “what are nicotine pouches”, you can read our other Nicokick guides!)
1. OPEN THE NICOTINE CAN
Nicotine pouch containers differ slightly depending on which brand you purchase. With most cans you simply lift the lid to open, but some are designed with a certified child safety lid. To open these cans, break the perforation along the side label, twist the lid to align the top and bottom arrows and lift.
2. TAKE A POUCH AND PARK IT
Take a pouch out of the can and place it between your gum and lip.
3. ENJOY FOR UP TO 60 MINUTES
You will feel a slight tingly sensation (also known as a “nicotine buzz”) and taste the flavor as it is released with the nicotine. Keep your pouch in for up to 60 minutes or as long as you feel the impact.
4. REMOVE AND THROW AWAY THE NICOTINE POUCH
Take out the pouch and throw it away (responsibly). You can either throw it straight in the trash or in the storage compartment in the lid if the can has that option - just do not throw them on the ground!
