What are white pouches and who are white pouches suitable for?

The number of users of white pouches has grown explosively in recent years, when people who used to smoke tobacco found the smokeless way to use nicotine. The product is also marketed to young people, but for whom and for what use are white pouches basically intended?

This article covers the topics of what white pouches are, who they are suitable for and why they should be used.

What exactly are nicotine pouches?

Although white pouches are similar in appearance and use to pouch snuff, the most essential differences can be found in the contents of the products.

White pouches do not contain leaf which is why they do not contain carcinogenic substances at all. There are more than 60 carcinogens in cigarettes and and 28 in snuff. In addition to them, they contain a lot of other substances that are dangerous to health, such as heavy metals, ammonia and carbon monoxide. White pouches, on the other hand, consist of non-toxic natural fiber cellulose, to which has been added and, for example, preservatives, acidity regulators and sweeteners used in the food industry.

In pharmacies, shops and kiosks, you can find many replacement therapy products that meet different needs. When using white pouches, chewing gum, lozenges, inhaler and oral spray, the nicotine concentration in the body rises quickly – usually in about half an hour. So they can help with surprising nicotine cravings. Nico patches, on the other hand, releases kick into the body slowly and steadily during the day, and can thus relieve withdrawal symptoms better.

For an experienced snorer, using white pouches may feel natural, while on the contrary, snoring may cause an uncomfortable tingling sensation for an inexperienced snorer. For smokers, the challenge may be not to touch the hands while using the white pouches, but the positive aspects are the possibility to use the product indoors and without disturbing other people. Nico bags are inconspicuous, uncolored and, apart from sweeteners, also fragrance-free, so they can be used, for example, in customer service professions. The choice of the product is therefore influenced by everyone’s own preferences and usage situations, and the most effective option can be found by experimenting.

White pouches may be a suitable option for you if:

  • you want to get rid of smoking
  • you want to reduce your current use
  • you understand that this is a drug for replacement therapy, and not a health product
  • you are at least 18 years old (use as a minor only with a doctor’s prescription)
  • you are not pregnant or breastfeeding

Can you get an overdose from white pouches?

Although the bags contain very little (4 mg), they must be used sensibly. With 4 mg sachets, you cannot do significant damage to yourself or take a lethal dose, but it is important for an inexperienced user to monitor their own state of mind. If you are not at all addicted to products or are not an experienced user, you may feel worse the first few times you use them.

Overdose is especially familiar to snus users – the feeling has worsened very quickly after the first few uses. The same applies to white pouches. When you use white pouches for the first time, it is possible that you will get the so-called overdose. This is NOT life threatening. Symptoms usually include headache, nausea and even palpitations. Some people also have these symptoms:

  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Pasty mouth
  • Insomnia
  • Diarrhea

The symptoms usually pass within a few hours at the latest and do not require immediate medical attention. We recommend drinking plenty of fluids and food, so you can get rid of the symptoms faster. However, if you feel significantly worse, contact your doctor.

Tip: In the future, only use max. 4 mg white pouches so you don’t have to experience an overdose of sachets.

White pouches and poisoning

As mentioned above, white pouches can cause mild poisoning in an inexperienced user. If you haven’t gotten your body used to nico, the first few times you use it, your body will have to to get to know a new and foreign substance in the body. This can cause weakness and a bad feeling, but the symptoms usually go away very soon and after just a few uses, your body is used to nicotine and the symptoms of poisoning will no longer appear. For experienced, it is VERY unlikely that white pouches will cause even mild poisoning, as the content in the pouches is very small.

Reasons why white pouches can cause mild poisoning:

  • Nico is a foreign substance to your body
  • The content in the bags is absorbed quickly
  • You have eaten badly
  • Your body is too dry (add fluids)
  • You consume several nico products with white pouches (for example, you smoke and use a white pouch at the same time)

Start with mild, 4 mg – 12 mg white pouches

You should definitely start using white pouches at max. with 4-12 mg strength nico sachets. These can be purchased completely legally in webshops.

White pouches with a strength of more than 15 mg cause serious addiction

You can also get white pouches with a nico concentration of more than 4 milligrams, but you should only use them when you are already aware of how white pouches affect you. Nico bags can be used to reduce nico use, but the main goal of using all replacement therapy products should always be to stop using all products.
