VELO’s Guide to Nicotine Pouches

Are you new to the world of nicotine pouches? For traditional adult nicotine consumers, getting nicotine from a pouch may seem like an unusual concept. You might have questions about what’s inside and how they work. Keep reading to learn everything about nicotine pouches from VELO.

What are nicotine pouches?

Nicotine pouches are small pouches that contain nicotine but no tobacco*. They allow adult nicotine consumers to access nicotine on the go without heat, smoke or vapour. They come in different sizes and nicotine strengths and an assortment of flavours suited to different tastes.

Why do people choose nicotine pouches?

Nicotine pouches offer smokers and vapers an alternative way to consume nicotine without smoke or vapour. They can be used on the go and in places where smoking and vaping are prohibited, like in bars, cinemas and on planes and trains.

There’s no smell, smoke or tobacco

Nicotine pouches tuck comfortably under your lip, releasing nicotine into the gums for up to 30 minutes and providing nicotine without smell, smoke or tobacco.

They’re available in different flavours

VELO nicotine pouches come in various flavours, including mint and fruit, to suit different tastes. Their ingredients list includes plant-based sweeteners and flavourings.

They can be used anywhere

Many consumers choose nicotine pouches because they can be used on the go. And because they don’t produce smoke or vapour, they’re legal for use in indoor public areas in the UK where smoking and vaping aren’t allowed. You can use nicotine pouches in the cinema, in restaurants and bars, on planes and trains, in airports and offices.

What are nicotine pouches made of?

VELO nicotine pouches are made from quality plant-based ingredients. The list includes pharmaceutical-grade nicotine, water (to make the pouch comfortable), flavours and sweeteners.

How to use a nicotine pouch

VELO nicotine pouches are made to be convenient and comfortable for use on the go. They’re designed to release nicotine into your gums for up to 30 minutes; it’s not recommended to leave them in your mouth for longer. After 30 minutes, the flavour and nicotine diminish.

  1. Twist open your VELO can
  2. Take out one pouch and tuck it between your top lip and gum
  3. Feel a slight tingling sensation as the nicotine is released
  4. Keep the pouch under your lip (for up to 30 minutes)
  5. Throw the used pouch in the nearest bin (or keep it inside the lid of your VELO can until you reach one)

Nicotine strengths

Most nicotine pouches come in different strengths suited to different nicotine experiences. From low to high, consumers can choose their strength before selecting their favourite flavour.

VELO nicotine pouches range from 4mg nicotine to strong 17mg pouches for experienced nicotine consumers. Only you know which strength is suitable for you; some people prefer starting out with a lower strength (like 4 or 6mg) to get used to the tingling sensation as nicotine is released.

How often should you use nicotine pouches?

How often you tuck in a nicotine pouch depends on how much nicotine you want to consume. Some consumers figure out how much they usually consume from smoking and translate this into nicotine pouches. It’s a good idea to be mindful of your nicotine intake.

Tips for using nicotine pouches

Nicotine pouches are straightforward to use – it’s as simple as pop, tuck, feel – but a few tips can help you make the most of each VELO can.

  • Start with a lower nicotine strength: if you’re new to nicotine pouches or trying to reduce your nicotine intake, start with a lower strength to determine your tolerance.
  • Check the regulations in your destination country: before travelling with nicotine pouches, check they’re allowed in the country you’re visiting.
  • Play with pouch placement: try placing the pouch in different parts of your mouth (always between your lip and gum) to avoid irritating one area.
  • Be mindful of your nicotine intake: monitor your nicotine consumption and avoid exceeding your desired intake. 
  • Dispose of used pouches properly: throw them in the bin and never litter with nicotine pouches. Now that you understand what nicotine pouches do, what’s inside and how to use them, you’re ready to explore the VELO range and choose the nicotine strength and flavours that suit you best.
