Nicotine Pouches

nicotine pouches

Nicotine pouches are small, discreet nicotine-containing packets that are inserted between the lip and gum to release low levels of nicotine for 30-60 minutes of use. They are marketed by tobacco companies to smokers as a safer alternative to cigarettes and are widely promoted on social media. These products are not suitable for children and can pose a serious threat to them if they are ingested, so parents must understand what these products are and how to prevent accidental poisoning in young children.

Nicotine Pouches

Nicotine pouches (ONPs) are white pouches usually made from plant fibers containing nicotine among other ingredients but do not contain tobacco leaf, dust or stem. [1] Depending on the manufacturer, they may be derived from natural or synthetic nicotine.

These products are a relatively new product category and are currently largely unregulated. In the UK, they are marketed as consumer products and do not fall within the scope of the Tobacco and Related Products Regulations (TRPR).

While nicotine pouches are advertised by tobacco companies as a less toxic and harmful alternative to smoking, there is little evidence supporting these claims. There is also no long-term data available to demonstrate that they are effective for people who want to quit smoking or reduce their nicotine intake. In addition, the popularity of these products among young people and nonsmokers has raised concerns that they could increase the uptake of tobacco products and undermine public health efforts.
