How the idea for Killa nicotine pouches was raised

The idea for Killa nicotine pouches came about because the founders wanted to create a healthier alternatives to cigarettes, and even today Killapods is aimed at users who no longer want to consume tobacco but who still wants to enjoy the effects of nicotine.

Smoking is something that exposes both the smoker himself and the environment to risks. When you inhale cigarette smoke from someone else who smokes, it's called passive smoking. It leads to almost the same major health risks such as smoking yourself. Therefore, it is not only you who are exposed to danger when you are smoking. Passive smoking can cause both acute and chronic respiratory problems. It can also aggravate childhood asthma and trigger asthma in healthy children.


Killa nicotine pouches instead of cigarettes

Many people who wants to quit smoking are looking for an alternative where they can get their nicotine intake, but avoid the dangerous smoke. Some smokers therefore switch from cigarettes to classic snus. The user's trachea is then not exposed to smoke, and is not exposed to carbon monoxide or other combustion products found in tobacco smoke. Carbon monoxide is a gas that degrades the blood ability to transport oxygen in the body.

For those of you who wants to take the step from cigarettes to classic snus that contains tobacco, the suggestion is to use snus that has a nicotine level of about 8 mg/g. Snus varieties to take a closer look at can be classic Göteborgs Rapé, General Snus, Ettan Snus or Odens original.

Others who want to quit smoking immediately switch to products that are completely free of both smoke and tobacco. Compared to Snus, the risks are even more reduced as you are not exposed to the tobacco as snus contains. Killa nicotine pouches does not contain tobacco or tar, and is a product that many used to quit smoking. This was the hope when Killa nicotine pouches was created, and is a factor that the use of Killapods continues to increase.


Nicotine gum is a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) available in two strengths, 2 mg and 4 mg. The appropriate strength for you is determined by the time you usually have your first cigarette of the day and the amount you are currently smoking. If you have your first cigarette within 30 minutes of waking, starting with the 4 mg strength is recommended. As time goes by, typically between 8 and 12 weeks, you can decrease the strength and frequency of use until you stop using the gum altogether. Using one piece of gum every 1-2 hours during the first six weeks of quitting is recommended. Try to anticipate when you may crave a cigarette and use a piece of gum before the craving occurs.


To ensure your body gets enough nicotine to ease withdrawal symptoms, it's best to use at least nine pieces of gum daily during the first six weeks. To use the gum correctly:

1. Start by biting down on it slowly until you feel a tingling sensation in your mouth.

2. Place the gum between your cheek and gums and hold it there for about a minute, absorbing the nicotine into your body.

3. Repeat this "chew" and "park" process until the tingling sensation stops, usually around 30 minutes.

Changing the location in your mouth where you "park" the gum occasionally is also recommended.


Nicotine Inhalers

Inhalers, which resemble plastic cigarettes, require a prescription from a healthcare provider. The oral nicotine inhaler may appear similar to a cigarette and should be used differently. You don't have to inhale deeply for the medication to be effective, and it should not be inhaled into the lungs like a traditional cigarette or asthma inhaler. Instead, take frequent, short, and shallow puffs from the inhaler, similar to how you would sip from a straw. The inhaler should be used for four 5-minute sessions or continuously for around 20 minutes, which is approximately how long one cartridge will last.


Nicotine Lozenges

Lozenges come in different sizes and strengths. The appropriate dose depends on when you typically have your first cigarette of the day and your current smoking amount. If you have your first cigarette within 30 minutes of waking, starting with the 4 mg strength is recommended. If you use the lozenge with a nicotine patch, starting with the 2 mg strength is suggested. Over time, usually between 8 to 12 weeks, you can decrease the dose and frequency of use until you stop using the lozenge altogether.


Nicotine Nasal Spray

The nicotine nasal spray requires a prescription from a healthcare provider. To use the nasal spray, first clear your nose by blowing it. Tilt your head back slightly and insert the tip of the bottle into your nostril as comfortably as possible. Breathe through your mouth and spray once in each nostril. Do not sniff, swallow or inhale while spraying. If your nose runs, gently sniff to keep the medication in your nose where it will be absorbed. Wait at least 2-3 minutes before blowing your nose. Replace the cap on the nasal spray and store it out of reach of children and pets. One bottle of the nasal spray typically delivers about 200 sprays.


Nicotine Mouth Spray

A nicotine mouth spray is a convenient and easy way to consume nicotine. To use it, point the nozzle towards your open mouth and hold it as close as possible, avoiding your lips. Press the top of the container to release 1-2 sprays into the side of your mouth. It's important not to inhale while spraying to avoid getting it down your throat. After spraying, wait a few seconds before swallowing. Ask your pharmacist for instructions if you need help using the spray. The recommended usage is up to 4 sprays per hour and not more than 64 sprays daily.
