Nicotine pouches have become increasingly popular over the past years, but with popularity also comes a lots of questions. One of the most common questions is how many nicotine pouches you should consume daily. Since nicotine pouches are still a relatively new concept, there’s not enough information to provide a research-based answer. But here is what we can provide.
Length of Use Per Pouch
The most popular (and most commonly used) nicotine pouches typically contain about 8-10 mg of nicotine, but it is surely possible to purchase pouches with lower or higher nicotine strength choices if that’s your preference.
Believe it or not, less than half of the nicotine is absorbed into your bloodstream when using a nicotine bag. In fact, you're only absorbing about 10-20% of the nicotine in the pouch. This means that even if you use a product with a higher amount of nicotine (such as 10 mg), you are still consuming only 1-2 mg of nicotine per serving.
When consuming nicotine pouches, the majority of the nicotine absorption generally occurs during the first 10 minutes of your experience. Because of this, many people experience a tingling sensation the first time they put the bag under their lips. After that, it tends to slow down and level off, but the body continues to absorb the nicotine slowly until you take the pouch out of your mouth. Many brands recommend holding the pouch in your mouth for up to 45 minutes, but if you want to limit your nicotine intake, around 20 minutes is the ideal number.
Remember to always remove the nicotine pouch from your mouth and dispose of it in the container trash can. Most importantly, remember to never swallow nicotine pouches, as that could cause unwanted side effects.
How Many Nicotine Pouches Can I Consume?
Have you ever wondered to yourself, “how many Shiro pouches should I use per day?” You’re not the only one. Most users consume around half a can of nicotine pouches per day, which is about 8-12 portions a day.
Important to note here is that whether you’re consuming three pouches a day or 10, there is no “proper” number. The truth is, even with research-based information to fulfill this, that number would vary based on specific factors like age, weight, health, etc. How many pouches a day you consume, or should consume, completely varies from person to person individually.
The most meaningful advice on this question for you is to listen to your body and evaluate how the nicotine pouches are making you feel. If you’re continuing to feel nauseous or having trouble sleeping, then, chances are you’re consuming too much nicotine at a time. But at the end of the day, there’s no magic number of pouches you should or should not be consuming a day. Just make sure that if you do ever feel like it’s ever getting challenging to control your consumption, set up a consultation with your doctor.
