What is the difference between Snus and Velo?

Whether it's Nicotine Pouches or Snus: Modern Oral Products are more popular than ever. But what is snus really, especially when compared to VELO?

Snus VS Velo: what are the differences?

The differences between oral nicotine products are many and subtle. So, it can be difficult to know what they are. In this guide, we help you understand the features and differences between snus and Velo nicotine pouches. Velo is a modern version of nicotine products that does not have tobacco. To understand the differences between these two products, let's start by learning more about snus.

What is snus?

Pronounced "snoose", snus is a type of moist tobacco originating in Sweden. Popular in Nordic countries such as Sweden, Finland and Norway, snus has both tobacco and nicotine.

Snus comes in a variety of forms, including pre-moulded portions, small pre-packed sachets, and loose powder that the user shapes into portions. They have both tobacco and nicotine.

The usual method of consumption is to place the product in the mouth, between the gum and the upper lip, and hold it there for anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. As the snus is absorbed into the mouth, the nicotine and flavour slowly diffuse into the saliva and then into the bloodstream.

Is snus legal in Switzerland?

Snus is allowed to be sold in Switzerland since 2019. It is subject to the same rules as tobacco products. However, it is prohibited in the European Union countries, except in Sweden. Switzerland decided to legalise this product in order to reduce the consumption of traditional cigarettes. Before 2019, its sale was forbidden.

What are the effects of snus?

As snus has nicotine, users feel the effects of nicotine. Nicotine acts on the brain and leads to a feeling of well-being and pleasure. Of course, nicotine is addictive..

What is Velo?

Velo is an oral nicotine product. Invented in Scandinavia, it is a convenient pouch containing nicotine and high quality ingredients. It does not have tobacco, unlike snus.

Velo has been designed for adult smokers (over 18 years old) and nicotine users who are looking for an alternative to cigarettes or snus. Our nicotine pouches offer an alternative way to consume nicotine, especially when you are travelling or in places where smoking is prohibited.
