What are Nicotine Pouches?

21. february 2023

Today’s nicotine consumers have more options than ever, from cigarettes and vaping to smoke and tobacco-free* nicotine pouches. Before you grab a pack of VELO pouches for no smoke*, no smell nicotine enjoyment, read on to learn everything about what they are and how they work.


What are nicotine pouches?

Nicotine in a VELO pouch? Weird. No smoke, ash* or charging? Wonderful.

VELO nicotine pouches can be used as an alternative to smoking cigarettes, vaping or wearing nicotine patches.

Why do people choose VELO pouches over other nicotine sources? It’s simple. Some nicotine consumers prefer them as a low-tech, smoke-free* alternative to vaping and cigarettes that can be used indoors and hands-free without disturbing the people around you.

How do nicotine pouches work?

VELO nicotine pouches are easy to use; pop off the lid, tuck one between your top lip and gum and feel the tingle as nicotine and flavours are released over 30 minutes. Learn more about how nicotine pouches work in our guide: how to use nicotine pouches.

VELO pouches deliver nicotine without smoke, vapour or smell*. Nicotine is absorbed through the gums for up to 30 minutes. When time’s up, remove the pouch with a finger and bin it responsibly.

Nicotine pouches are designed for convenient use wherever you go (even indoors), so there’s no need to step outside like you might to smoke a cigarette or vape.


What are nicotine pouches made from

There aren’t many ingredients in VELO pouches. There’s nicotine (of course), and we use a tobacco-free*, pharmaceutical-grade nicotine polymer. We add plant-based ingredients to bulk the product and make it a comfortable size. Food-grade flavourings and sweeteners give VELO pouches their distinct flavours, from a blast of cool mint to a burst of zesty lime.

Tips for using VELO pouches

As with any nicotine product, using VELO pouches safely and responsibly is vital. Here are a few things to remember before you pop, tuck and feel.

  • Never use a VELO pouch for longer than 30 minutes.
  • Choose the right nicotine strength for you – start with a low level if you’re new to nicotine pouches, so you can get used to the feeling.

  • Keep pouches in their original packaging and close the lid tightly to keep them fresh.
  • Check nicotine regulations in destination countries before travelling with VELO pouches.


How to choose VELO pouches

VELO pouches come in various nicotine strengths, ranging from 4 to 17mg. Use our handy dot system to check you’re choosing the right strength for your experience.
