Snus and nicotine pouches are growing in popularity and are becoming a healthier alternative to smoking. Compared to cigarette smoking, the use of snus and nicotine pouches is less-harmful. While they aren’t risk-free, they can drastically reduce your chances of getting cancer from cigarette smoking.

Difference Between Snus and Nicotine Pouches

Snus is an oral tobacco product that comes loose or in little pouches.
Nicotine pouches are small packs containing a whitish substance having snus with nicotine as the main ingredient.

The main difference between the two is that nicotine pouches are tobacco-free while Swedish snus is not. Similarities between the two are that they do not require combustion and offer the same satisfaction as that of smoking. Additionally, they are discreet, split-free and a common way of using them is by placing them under the top lip or between the lower lip and gum.
