VELO are one of the leading brands of Nicotine Pouches sold in Europe, as well as in the USA and are hugely popular here in the UK with many people opting to use VELO Nicotine Pouches as their preferred brand of choice when it comes to white pouches.
But you may be reading this and be a new user of Nicotine Pouches, and not quite taken the leap into the smoke/vapourless Nicotine products such as Velo and may be wondering just how to use Velo Nicotine Pouches. Well fear not, as this is what this blog is all about! I’m going to give you an insight and a little bit about VELO and who they are, as well as talking you through the steps of how to use a VELO Nicotine Pouch so you can experience the great benefits of Nicotine Pouches for yourself.
Who Are VELO?
VELO is the brand name for the Nicotine Pouches that have been created by the Big Tobacco tycoon that is British American Tobacco. Originally launched as LYFT here in Europe, BAT saw resounding success with the introduction of Nicotine Pouches on to the market in Europe as well as in the USA where it was marketed and sold under the VELO name.
After seeing the rise in popularity of the VELO brand, BAT made the choice to overhaul the image of the brand and rebrand and sell their Nicotine Pouches under the VELO name world wide, to make it a more globally known name.
VELO has seen huge success with the sales of Nicotine Pouches worldwide, as well as landing several large sponsorship deals as well. Most notably with them being one of the lead sponsors of the McLaren F1 racing team as well as partnering together with McLaren to launch an eSports series.
However this was met with some criticism, and calls were made for McLaren to abandon this sponsorship deal with the “Big Tobacco” company as it could be enticing younger people to want to use Nicotine Pouches, but it was notably the Dutch Government making this call, and they have recently banned the sale of Nicotine Pouches in the country so it comes as no surprise really that they would want this sponsorship to end.
How To Use Velo Nicotine Pouches
Enough about the history of VELO, let’s get on to the topic of what this blog is all about and that’s how to use VELO Nicotine Pouches! Now, VELO Nicotine Pouches aren’t really any different to any other Nicotine Pouch that is available on the market and how you use them is pretty much the same as you’d use any other Nicotine Pouch, but I’ll talk you through the steps still so you understand it if you have any uncertainties!
#1 – Open The Can
Pretty obvious first step here, and that’s opening the can so that you can get to your pouches! Cans of Nicotine Pouches are all designed the same, where they will have a sticker seal around the edge of the can that normally has perforations on it which you need to split apart to open the can. You can either use your nail for this, or use the edge of the lid from the top compartment where you can put your used pouches in and run it around the can and this will then break the seal.
Then squeeze the bottom of the can together, or put the lid in between the gap and the top lid will pop off giving you access to your Velo Nicotine Pouches!
#2 – Put In Place
Next step will be getting a Nicotine Pouch out of the can and putting in place and this again is a really simple and straight forward stage of the process as well.
Get yourself one pouch out of the can (I recommend only ever using one Nicotine Pouch at a time) and place it in your mouth so it rests between your upper gum and upper lip. As soon as you put it in your mouth and it rests, you’ll start to feel the Nicotine absorbing through your gum.
This feeling can be a bit strange if you’ve not experienced before, and gives a “tingling” effect, which is the Nicotine absorbing into the gum. This sensation is not something that everyone enjoys, and it may feel strange at first, but persevere with it as it doesn’t last long and soon settles down.
If you opt to use to a higher nicotine strength Nicotine Pouch, you will find that the tingling sensation will be a lot more prominent and some call it intense, so be aware of this if you’re wanting to use a high strength Nicotine Pouch.
#3 – Enjoy The Feeling!
VELO recommend keeping a Nicotine Pouch in place for around 30 minutes and I think this is a correct time frame, but you can leave it a bit longer if you wanted to, up to around 45 minutes if you want the maximum absorption time.
As mentioned, the tingling feeling will suppress within a few minutes of the pouch being put in place, and you’ll just feel the nicotine absorbing over the time frame, as well as enjoying whichever flavour you’ve opted to choose.
By the end of the 45 minute window, you’ll probably start to lose the flavour as well as not feeling to much from the Nicotine absorbing either which is an indicator it’s time to move onto the next and final step of using Nicotine Pouches.
#4 – Dispose Of Your Nicotine Pouch
This is the final step of the process of using Nicotine Pouches and one of the most important to get right and that is disposing of your Nicotine Pouch in the correct way!
Unfortunately, you will probably will have seen used pouches just thrown on the ground if you’re out and about and this is the wrong way to dispose of your used pouches. Not only is this really unhygienic, it’s also bad for the environment with Nicotine Pouches just being discarded onto the streets causing litter, but also it can be dangerous to animals who may pick them up, or even inquisitive children might pick them up wondering what they are.
Every single can of VELO Nicotine Pouches are designed the same and have a dedicated area on the top of each lid where you can put your used Nicotine Pouches if you don’t have access to a bin. Of course, if you can put them into a nearby bin, then do that, but if not, simply place your used pouches into the compartment on the lid and then put them into a bin when you can reach one.
After you’ve finished with your Nicotine Pouch, I’d recommend leaving it a good 60 minutes at least before using another one. This is to let your body regulate back down after absorbing the nicotine from the pouch for the previous time frame.
If you were to consistently use them back to back, in a chain-using style, you may find you’ll be subject to adverse side effects like nausea, headaches or dizziness from ingesting too much Nicotine. But don’t worry, these are only short term side effects and won’t last long, just make sure you give yourself a long enough break in between using Nicotine Pouches!
