It’s been a few months but I’m back this evening with another NEW player into the smokeless alternative market! Introducing FlowBlend Natural Infused Pouches! – flowblend.com
The pouches currently come in four flavors including Coffee, Spearmint, Wintergreen and Orange Tang. There are two varieties of each flavor as well: CBD and STOKED CBD.
Here’s the difference between the two. According to their website:
When you just want to kick it, you need a simple option. CBD Infused pouches are loaded with CBD, thats it. Open the can, grab a pouch and Blend.
STOKED CBD BLEND
The FlowBlend ‘Stoked’ CBD Pouch ignites Energy, Focus, Memory, and Mood. This pouch is infused with CBD, L-Theanine, Caffeine and Siberian Ginseng. This Proprietary Blend was carefully formulated to improve performance in whatever you are doing.
OK… housekeeping out of the way. Let’s get to the review.
The first thing you’ll notice here is a really good quality can. It’s a small detail but one that I appreciate and typically tells you that what’s inside is going to be good. I’m happy to say that is the case here. These are relatively small pouches, at least in relation to many of the pouch products on the market. Luckily that doesn’t mean they’re small on taste – far from it. The other thing you’ll notice immediately about these pouches is that they’re SUPER dry. Again, not a bad thing as they produce quite a bit of spit right away when putting them in.
The back of the can offers a QR code which when scanned will take you to the FlowBlend website for some additional info about the product.
As these products contain CBD I’ll include some standard language that I’ve used in previous CBD reviews:
I’m not a pot guy and have never been a pot guy. That being said, if you are anti-pot or anti-CBD please… do NOT let those feelings taint these products for you. Please give this a read and then make your assessment. I’m reviewing these products as a SMOKELESS ALTERNATIVE… nothing more. As we begin to understand the power of CBD there’s some really great products hitting the market and I’d hate for to you miss out.

FlowBlend Natural Infused Pouches Review and Recommendation
These are really solid pouch products. You can’t let the small size of the pouches nor the fact that they’re dry throw you off. The pack big flavors even with a single pouch (though if I’m being honest I always use two pouches when I’m sampling these products). I do have to say that putting a single pouch in would be nearly imperceptible and you could chew these all day long and no one would be the wiser.
As I’ve said in previous CBD reviews, I don’t know much about the affects of using CBD with any sort of regularity. I’m just reviewing these purely from the aspect of them as an alternative aid to quitters out there. That said, as I get older, and do more reading about the benefits of CBD I’m getting more and more intrigued by how this stuff can help with my ‘snap crackle pops’ that I seem to be dealing with more and more.
I didn’t really perceive much of a FLAVOR difference between the CBD and STOKED versions – I’d actually call that a positive as you’re getting a consistent flavor across the product lines. I will say there was a bit a difference in the way the Coffee pouches looked (CBD vs. STOKED) but they tasted the same to me.
I REALLY enjoyed the flavor of Orange Tang, probably because it was a bit different from your traditional ‘dip’ flavors. If you’re a child of the 80’s and remember TANG then you’ll know that the name of this flavor is very much by design.
Spearmint (Crisp Spearmint on the side of the can) and Wintergreen (Cool Wintergreen) are the two most ‘traditional’ dip flavors. Between the two I think I think I preferred the Spearmint but that’s 100% subjective. Both are very good an ‘refreshing’ pouches. Both the Wintergreen and Spearmint flavors will make their way into my truck to be used as ‘breath mints’.
The Coffee Flavor pouches are just that – coffee flavored. There’s a SLEW of coffee alternative products out there that are MADE from coffee. These aren’t that. These are made to TASTE like coffee. When it comes to the alternatives that are made from coffee you really need to be a fan of coffee to enjoy the (duh). That ‘may’ not be the case here. There’s coffee tastes with these pouches but it’s not overwhelming.
There have been a couple of alternative manufactures that have gone out of business recently so I’m THRILLED to see FlowBlend come along and offer another option for quitters out there… especially one that is of such high quality. CBD and Caffeine products are taking the world by storm and FlowBlend is a GREAT addition to the space. I love the fact that there are new alternatives coming into the market and there’s really something for everyone.
