  • Strength 2 = 5 mg
  • Strength 3 = 9 mg
  • Strength 4 = 1 1mg

What size are ZYN pouches?

ZYN come in two sizes:

  • 14mm x 28mm
  • 14mm x 32mm

What countries are ZYN available in?

Does Sainsbury’s sell ZYN?

Yes, you can pick up a can of ZYN in Sainsbury’s. Sure, they’re a little more expensive than buying online, but with over 1,400 stores all over the UK, it’s a great option if you need a pouch at short notice. You can also buy them from shops, petrol stations, and your local vape store.

How many nicotine pouches in a can of ZYN?

ZYN nicotine pouches come with about 21 cans in a portion. Although some cans have 15.

How many ZYNs per day?

Typically, users stick to around 10 portions per day. Some people do take more, but like with any product, it’s best to start small and build up gradually.

Do ZYN nicotine pouches contain tobacco?

No way! ZYN, just like other nicotine pouches, are tobacco-free.

What is ZYN made of?

ZYN is made from processed nicotine and other food-grade ingredients. The pouch that contains the portion is made from plant fibres.

In a paper ‘The New Nicotine Pouch Category: A Tobacco Harm Reduction Tool?‘ (Patwardhan, Fagerström, 2022), the authors write that:

“ZYN is a thin white pouch that contains white powdered nicotine. Other ingredients in ZYN include food-grade additives, fillers, a stabilizer (hydroxypropyl cellulose), pH adjusters, noncaloric sweeteners, and flavorings”.

What type of nicotine does ZYN contain?

ZYN contains nicotine made from natural tobacco leaves. The nicotine is extracted from these leaves and results in a high-quality, pure, pharmaceutical grade tobacco product.
