      lmao

      Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I killed because they were annoying......


      I've been wrong lots of times. Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.

            I think they get scraps from the My Pillow guy to use as filler....

                  I couldn't quit smoking with vaping, in 2006 I found Snus, it had a few minor alkaloids that helped those that vaping couldn't . That being said, my concern with these nic-o-pods is this:

                  This opens a new way that Swedish Snus could be diluted and the actual tobacco amount per tin be decreased, hypothetically speaking.
                  Swedish match is already, using plant material to reduce the Tobacco weight in a few lines of products.
                  I fear the next step from a business standpoint would be to vastly reduce the Tobacco content in Snus, which if this happens there will be added nicotine I would think, simply to give the potency of nicotine.

                  This would be bad long term, I'm hoping.

                  It's concerning that the future people may not have access to pure tobacco Snus (alkaloids lesson), if this happens, the average person that can't quit smoking with pharmaceutical nicotine, will not be able to quit with nicpods, or Snus without the full alkaloid spectrum.

                  I'm not try to be argumentive, I just worry that could be a future in the Snus industry.
                  I agree completely with you. Nic pods are just that. Snus is supposed to be about tobacco: not "washed" tobacco; not "white" tobacco...REAL tobacco made safe the Swedish way.

                    I think is all to do with the law: in the EU we're not allowed tobacco snus so Lyft, Zyn etc are a way around the rules. But (I think?) in Norway they are not allowed nicotine pouches that don't contain tobacco so Epok is made for that market.

                    Having tried Epok and Lyft side by side (both in the standard strength, both in the mint flavour) my conclusion is that I think the Lyft is sweeter, more spearmint and has a lot less nicotine tingle. More like a wad of chewing gum. Not unpleasant but not snus.

                    Edit: just seen this https://www.snuscentral.org/snus-new...rand-for-lyft/

                      That's what I thought. I would add though it was like a wad of NRT gum or lozenge in a snus portion bag. Maybe the best NRT experience you could have but it wasn't snus.

                        It's the opposite in Norway; snus is allowed but Nicotine Pods are not. So EPOK is a Norway only product because it has water-boarded tobacco in it. LYFT is for the rest of us.
