The National Rise of Zyn Pouches

Truth Initiative
Two separate flavors of Zyn Pouches.

Vapes and cigarettes have been two of the top selling sources of nicotine for many years. As a result, nicotine companies have expanded into the modern world by creating different flavors including strawberry, watermelon and peppermint.

In addition, there is a new nicotine source called Zyn pouches. They are small white pouches that people can place in the upper lip and are tobacco free, costing only five dollars.

People from all over the nation are switching to these small pouches instead of vapes and cigarettes. This is because the product does not require blowing out smoke in public or leaving a smell on people’s clothes. And unlike dip, spitting is not necessary.

The market for Zyns has skyrocketed in the past couple of years, making millions of dollars each year. Gas stations all over the country are advertising them in front of their buildings and their popularity has even entered the world of athletes and celebrities.

Baseball players have switched to Zyns given Major League Baseball’s ban on tobacco. Celebrities on the “Joe Rogan Experience” and “Fullsend” podcasts have been seen using this product because it is very discreet.

Financially, the product is much cheaper than many other sources of nicotine. Zyns even offer reward codes on the back of the case which give people an opportunity to win a nice surprise. 

“ZYNs are a great alternative to dip, since they are tobacco free.” -Wes Overstreet, Zyn Consumer

When exposed to products such as vapes and cigarettes, individuals have often reported health issues, including popcorn lung and cancer. Often times these can lead to death.

With numerous people turning to and using this product each day, it’s easy to question if Zyn pouches have the same effect on the human body. However, with the product receiving no regulation from the FDA the answer to this question is still to be determined.

Regardless, they can still be a major cause of nicotine addiction if misused. Experts have advised against product use by people who are not already addicted as it is meant to be a way to turn people away from traditional sources.
