Can nicotine pouches be reused?

VELO nicotine pouches are a modern way of consuming nicotine. Whether you're already a nicotine pouches user or just starting out on your VELO experience, you may have some questions about the use of these nicotine pouches.

How long can you keep a nicotine pouch in your mouth? Can a pouch be used several times? We'll answer all these questions in our article, so read on!

How to use nicotine pouches?

To better understand whether nicotine pouches can be reused, we first need to look at how they are used.

To use a nicotine pouch, all you have to do is put it in your mouth. More precisely, nicotine pouches are placed under the lower or upper lip, between the gum and the lip.

After placing the nicotine pouch in your mouth, you will feel a slight tingling sensation. This is a sign that the nicotine contained in the pouch is beginning to release on contact with your mucous membrane. After about half an hour, the nicotine contained in the pouch will finishbeing released and the pouch can be disposed of in the bin or placed in the dedicated section of the VELO box.

For a detailed explanation of how to use nicotine pouches, see this dedicated article.

Are nicotine pouches reusable?

One of the questions frequently asked about nicotine pouches is whether they can be reused. Unfortunately, the answer is no. Nicotine pouches are not designed to be reused, and we strongly advise against doing so. Here are a few explanations.

Why can't nicotine pouches be reused?

There are several reasons why nicotine pouches cannot be reused. Firstly, the structure of nicotine pouches is designed to release nicotine gradually. The nicotine pouches are placed in the mouth for about half an hour. During this time, the nicotine contained in the pouch will be released on contact with the mucous membrane. Reusing a nicotine pouch is not useful because most of the nicotine and flavourings will already have been used. So, if you reuse a nicotine pouch, it won't give you the expected amount of nicotine nor a pleasant flavour.

What's more, nicotine pouches are designed to be disposable. They are made from specific materials that allow controlled release of nicotine. If you try to re-use a nicotine pouch, it's possible that the materials will deteriorate, which can alter the release of nicotine and therefore its effectiveness.

Finally, hygiene is another important reason why nicotine pouches should not be reused. Nicotine pouches come into direct contact with the mouth and saliva, which can lead to an accumulation of bacteria and germs. Reusing a nicotine pouch can increase the risk of infections or oral and dental problems.

It is therefore strongly recommended that you always use a new nicotine pouch.
