Which Velo (Lyft) has the Lowest Nicotine?

Nicotine pouches

Velo is today one of the most popular brands for nicotine pouches. Most Swedes know the brand as Lyft, which is the name that has been used in Sweden for several years. In 2022, the company changed its name from Lyft to Velo in Sweden to make the name consistent across all markets. The name Velo had already been used in many markets outside Sweden.

However, the name Lyft was not completely abandoned and Lyft/Labs was established, which is the company’s development brand where they release new test flavors developed based on market and customer feedback.

We will continue to refer to the name Velo as this is the main brand and to which the name Lyft was changed.

The experience of a nicotine pouch is highly individual. Of course, flavor plays an important role, but the most important factor in how the nicotine pouch is experienced is its nicotine strength. Use a nicotine pouch that is too strong and you risk feeling dizzy and nauseous. Use a nicotine pouch that is too weak and you may not even notice the nicotine.

But if you are not an experienced user of nicotine pouches or simply don’t like high nicotine pouches, then the good news is that there are also those with lower nicotine content. Thanks to the growing availability of nicotine pouches on the market today, there is a wide range of nicotine pouches in all different nicotine strengths – from weak with low nicotine content, to strong with a high nicotine content. But which Lyft/Velo is the weakest?

Let’s take a look at the nicotine pouches in Velo’s range with the lowest nicotine strength. Later, we will also discuss other factors you should consider in addition to just the amount of nicotine.

Other factors besides nicotine content affect your nicotine experience

Even though nicotine amount, or nicotine strength is the most important factor in your nicotine experience, it is far from the only one. In fact, other factors are so important that when many manufacturers grade the strength on the scale they use, it can be different between different varieties, even if the nicotine amount is the same. And this is something that is important to keep in mind.

For example, a Velo Slim with strength 2 has a nicotine amount of 5.6mg per pouch. However, Velo mini with the same strength, 2, contains a nicotine amount of 6mg per pouch.

Some of the most important factors that affect the nicotine experience are as follows:

  • Humidity

A moister pouch provides faster and more efficient nicotine release which means it can have a lower nicotine content but still have the same strength on the scale.

  • Size of pouch

When using a larger pouch (such as slim instead of mini), the mouth tends to absorb more nicotine. This is why mini-format often has a higher nicotine content than their slim counterparts. This is to give the same nicotine experience.

  • pH value
  • Flavor
  • Your saliva production

The most important factor is how you experience nicotine strength and this is something that is highly individual.

The nicotine experience is always highly individual

There are several reasons why the nicotine experience is individual. The main reason is that the body builds up a tolerance for nicotine the more it is used. An experienced snus user therefore has a higher tolerance for nicotine than an inexperienced nicotine user. For this reason, these individuals can handle higher nicotine strengths without getting dizzy. A beginner may get dizzy from a nicotine pouch with strength 1 and an inexperienced nicotine user barely notices anything with a strength of 4 or 5.

With that said, the most important thing is how you experience nicotine and how you react to it. You should therefore choose nicotine strength based on your needs and preferences. And that is probably the reason why you are reading this article from the beginning – you have not used nicotine pouches for very long – or just do not use them very often. And you therefore want a nicotine pouch with a low nicotine strength that gives you a perfect nicotine experience.

It’s worth mentioning that the tolerance for nicotine decreases if you stop using nicotine products or reduce your intake. This is why you can experience a stronger nicotine effect if you have not used nicotine products for a longer period of time.

Our recommendation is always that if you are unsure about which nicotine strength to choose, go for the Velo with the lowest nicotine content. It’s better to get too little nicotine than too much because the effects of nicotine overconsumption can cause discomfort. If you then feel that the nicotine level is too low, you can increase it in stages until you find the perfect nicotine level for you.

How Velo Indicates Nicotine Strength

Velo uses a rating system of one to four and presents it in the form of “dots” on its cans. Velo uses the entire strength spectrum and has nicotine pouches from one dot to four dots (X-Strong).

In addition to its system, Velo can also use terms to describe the strength. Velo’s strength system looks like this:

When we talk about nicotine pouches and nicotine strength, it is also important to note that studies conducted on tobacco snus have found that only 10-20% of the nicotine present in the snus is absorbed and taken up into the bloodstream. (Source) Although nicotine pouches differ from tobacco snus, they are used in the same way, and we can assume that the results are somewhat similar, although a study specifically for nicotine pouches needs to be done.
