White Cranberry Cores: Super Plants to Ease Nicotine Withdrawal

Trying to quit smoking or vaping? White Cranberry Cores were specifically formulated with super plants known to reduce nicotine cravings, among other other withdrawal symptoms. These plants, paired with Füm, are an effective physical replacement for the oral sensation and the hand to mouth habit of smoking. They bring the powerful benefits of super plants to aid in your quitting journey. 

What is Nicotine Withdrawal?

Before jumping into the nitty gritty on the benefits of these super plants, let’s talk about some of the common effects of nicotine withdrawal when you’re quitting smoking: 

  • Appetite: Most people who are quitting notice a spike in appetite. This is because nicotine affects serotonin and dopamine levels in your brain, which both reduce hunger. So when your nicotine levels are reduced or eliminated, people often notice an increase in appetite. 
  • Cravings: Nicotine cravings are commonly the most dreaded element of quitting. Typically lasting 15-20 minutes, they pop up frequently throughout the day with various triggers, such as in social situations or at coffee breaks. These cravings can be all-encompassing, as your mind longs for the habit and stress-easing effects. 
  • Fatigue: Nicotine has strong stimulant effects, so removing it from your daily routines can result in feeling tired or sluggish. For some, they also experience restlessness and insomnia, resulting in a vicious cycle of fatigue. 
  • Constipation: With prolonged use of nicotine, your body becomes reliant on its stimulating effects. An unpleasant repercussion of this is that you may experience intense constipation within the first month or two of quitting as your body adjusts to the absence of this stimulant.
  • Coughs: smoking and vaping does significant damage to your respiratory system. As your body tries to clean out the residue that smoking and vaping leave, you’ll notice an increase in phlegm and subsequently a significant amount of coughing. 
  • Headaches & Mental Fog: concentration is challenging for most while quitting, especially when accompanied by headaches. 
  • Anxiety & Depression: Smoking has been shown to relieve stress. For this reason, when you remove it from your routines, you may find that your feelings of stress, anxiety and depression simultaneously increase. 
  • Water Retention: Scientific research indicates that smoking may increase your body’s retention of water, causing inflammation and bloating. This is primarily due to the immunity suppressing impacts of smoking. 

  • Let’s take a closer look at the beneficial plants in White Cranberry Cores....

    Black Pepper 

    A classic craving buster that has had numerous studies showing its effectiveness in aiding in getting off nicotine and tobacco. It also may improve blood sugar, have cancer-fighting properties, improve brain function, and has some impressive anti-inflammatory properties.

    Known as the go-to for reducing sugar cravings, Grapefruit is especially helpful when getting off of sugary vape juices. Scientific research has shown that Grapefruit suppresses appetite and sugar cravings, increases lipolysis (our body’s natural process of burning fats for energy), and uplifts mood by easing anxiety. Grapefruit is fantastic for quitting smoking as appetite typically increases slightly in the first few days of quitting, and anxiety is known to increase while ditching nicotine.

    Primarily in this core for its boozy, fruity, sweet flavor, Davana also has anti-inflammatory and mood boosting properties. The sweet flavor may also decrease sugar and food cravings.  

    Black Spruce

    Known for its healing effects, Black Spruce is a great plant for aiding in tissue healing. Smoking is very damaging to your olfactory system. Using Black Spruce with Füm can work to aid in healing of that damage. 


    A sweet, deep and warm flavor that people naturally associate with desserts. Cinnamon works as an effective stand in for those sweet cravings as it may reduce inflammation and aid in blood sugar regulation.

    A unique plant that has been shown to aid in balancing water retention, which can cause discomfort, bloating, and make you less nimble and active. Balancing water levels in your body eases the inflammation that smoking can cause. 


    A happy, citrus, mood boosting plant, Orange is not only flavorful but also beneficial. Quitting smoking typically increases feelings of stress and anxiety. Orange can combat that up-tick in negative emotions while also improving lung function, and balancing appetite.
