Nicotine pouches: choosing the right one for your needs

01 Oct 2020

It can be easy to confuse nicotine pouches with oral tobacco products, with so many name variations and the same oral method of consumption. Yet, nicotine pouches are quite unique. The main difference between VELO nicotine pouches and other oral tobacco products is that VELO nicotine pouches are completely tobacco-free.

Another distinctive feature is the way nicotine pouches are consumed. When using VELO, you please the pouch under your upper lip and can be kept there for up to 30 minutes.


What nicotine pouches are available?

Nicotine pouches are a modern way for consumers to have a nicotine experience, not only because of the discreet nature of consumption but also because there are so many options of flavours and strengths, it’s easy to find a product to suit each individual’s needs.  


What nicotine strength should I choose?

If you’re new to nicotine pouches, it’s best to start out on a lower nicotine strength while you get used to the product. A low nicotine strength is around 4MG or 6MG. Once you get more comfortable with the product and how it feels, you may prefer a higher nicotine strength – the choice is entirely yours. VELO uses a dot system to show the nicotine level of each product, the lower the dots the lower the amount of nicotine present in the pouch.

For those who prefer a higher nicotine strength, VELO has nicotine pouches that contain nicotine of 10MG and 11MG.


What flavour pouch should I choose?

There are a lot of options when it comes to choosing your nicotine pouch flavour, so there’s something for everyone. If you’re unsure which flavour to pick, consider a flavour that you’re familiar with and perhaps already enjoy in other products.

If you’re drawn to sweet fruity flavours, there are tropical and berry-based options like Ruby Berry and Tropic Breeze that are a great place to start. Or if you used to smoke menthol cigarettes, there are freshy minty flavours like Polar Mint with cooling flavours of spearmint and menthol.
