VELO's guide to nicotine pouches

02 Sep 2020


The modern way to consume nicotine without comprising on taste. Nicotine pouches are, as the name suggests, a small pouch that contains nicotine but no tobacco. They are discreet in design and available in a variety of fresh flavours, which makes it easy for existing tobacco or nicotine consumers to use anywhere.



By simply placing the pouch under your lip and leaving it for up to 30 minutes, you will start to feel a slight tingling sensation as the nicotine is released.

When using nicotine pouches, it’s normal for the process to feel a little strange. Follow our simple steps to ensure you’re using them correctly.

1. Twist open your VELO pouch

2. Take one pouch and tuck it between your upper lip and your gum

3. Begin to feel a slight tingling sensation as the nicotine is released

4. Keep the pouch under your lip, for up to 30 minutes

5. Dispose of the used pouch in the nearest rubbish bin or place the used pouch inside the handy cap on your VELO can.

Or our simple way to remember the steps. Twist it, Tuck it, Feel it!



Nicotine pouches offer adult smokers and nicotine consumers a convenient and alternative way to consume nicotine. Let’s take a look at why consumers choose nicotine pouches.

  • There’s no smell, no smoke, no tobacco

Because of the way the product is designed, nicotine is absorbed through the gum, which means you can consume nicotine with no smell, no smoke and no tobacco. 

  • Various flavours to suit your taste

Nicotine pouches come in a wide range of flavours to suit your preferences. This is achieved using flavouring and sweeteners in the manufacturing to create an enjoyable taste and smell.

  • They can be used anywhere

The subtle design and easy to use pouch means you can use your nicotine pouches anywhere at any time – simply tuck the pouch under your upper lip and you’re good to go.


Things to be aware of when using nicotine pouches

  • You might feel a slight tingling sensation

You might feel a slight tingling sensation under your lip when you start using nicotine pouches, which is nothing to worry about as it’s just the nicotine being released. Choosing a menthol flavour can sometimes intensify this tingling sensation because of the mint ingredient that we’ve added. Nicotine pouches come in a variety of flavours to suit every taste.



As you’ve learnt, using nicotine pouches is really simple and easy to use. To recap, here are our top-tips for using nicotine pouches:

  • Start with a low nicotine strength so you can get a feel for the product and understand what works best for your needs.
  • It’s true that nicotine pouches can be used almost anytime and at anywhere, but if you’re planning to go abroad, make sure you check the regulations in other countries as some specific regulations could apply.
