Velo claims to be the #1 nicotine pouch in Scandinavia, and was founded by the R. J. Reynolds Vapor Company which started in 2012. Like Zyn, it originated in Sweden, but is now sold in many countries including the USA. Here’s what it looks like:
Velo tends to come in 4mg to 6mg packages, but two of its flavors have a lot more nicotine. These are the Ice Cool flavor with 10mg, and the Freeze flavor with 11mg. But the amount of nicotine in these pouches is not necessarily an indication of how powerful they are! Zyn, for example, has a 6mg package, but it’s vastly stronger and will hit you harder than a 6mg package of Velo. The consensus on Velo, in fact, is that it’s quite light, and people say they can’t even feel the 4mg one. It’s also often said that the flavor of Velo barely lasts, and the pouches are very hard.
What flavors does Velo come in?
- Ruby Berry
- Urban Vibe
- Polar Mint
- Tropic Breeze
- Ice Cool
Is Velo recommended?
Velo is a reputable brand, but it doesn’t have a great reputation overall for these reasons (as listed above):
- Very little taste, and you may feel like the nicotine is not reaching you
- Very hard
- Reported to not last long (possibly only around 15 minutes)
Therefore, you can try Velo if it’s what’s most convenient for you to get, but if you have access to other brands, you’ll probably be able to get something better.
