VELO Nicotine Pouches

Discover our popular range of VELO nicotine pouches, which are a top choice when it comes to tobacco-free snus in the UK. These pouches offer around 40 minutes of nicotine release with a variety of enjoyable flavours to match whatever mood you're in.

Northerner proudly stocks all 14 flavours, along with 6 different nicotine strengths and 2 pouch formats: Mini and Slim. 

VELO: Choose the Right Size & Strength For You

As mentioned, VELO pouches are available in two sizes or formats: Slim and Mini. While both fit discreetly under your top lip, the Mini pouches are slightly wider than Slim ones.

It's important to note that Mini pouches tend to have a lower nicotine strength compared to Slim as well – for example, VELO Ruby Berry (Slim) contains 10mg of nicotine per pouch, whereas VELO Ruby Berry (Mini) only has 8mg per pouch.

Frequently Asked Questions about VELO Nicotine Pouches

What are VELO Nicotine Pouches?

VELO nicotine pouches are tobacco- and smoke-free pouches that you “park” between your upper lip and gum for a gradual nicotine release. VELO nicotine pouches are available in 14 distinct flavours and 6 different strengths (from 4mg up to 17mg of nicotine per pouch). 

Who Can Use VELO UK Products?

You must be over 18 years old to buy/use nicotine pouches such as VELO, and we have age verification measures in place to double check this (both on-site and in-person).

Otherwise, it’s important to note that the products we sell on Northerner contain nicotine, which is an addictive substance and is not suitable for pregnant and/or breast-feeding women or anyone who has high blood pressure, an unstable heart condition or diabetes. 

How Long Do VELO Pouches Last?

On average, VELO pouches can last around 30 minutes in your mouth. However, this will vary based on how strong the pouch is and your individual preferences/nicotine tolerance. Keep in mind that after an hour the pouch will start to lose flavour and some of the nicotine’s effectiveness. 

What Happens if You Swallow VELO?

You should never swallow VELO nicotine pouches (or any other nicotine products for that matter). They’re designed to be placed under your lip and not chewed or consumed. If you do happen to swallow one, please contact a healthcare professional immediately. 

Is VELO Snus?

By definition, VELO is not snus since these pouches do not contain any tobacco. VELO products are often referred to as "tobacco-free snus" or "white snus" though, due to the similar pouch design, but it's important to note the distinction. 

Is There a Difference Between LYFT & VELO?

In 2020, all LYFT products were consolidated into the VELO brand under British American Tobacco (BAT). Some of their flavours like Ice Cool Mint and Tropic Breeze officially switched over to VELO, while LYFT continue to make a limited assortment of their other flavoured pouches in the UK.

How Does VELO Compare to Other Nicotine Pouch Brands?
