The origin and inspiration for VOON CBD Pouches
Voon’s origins sprouted from a casual dinner
discussion at the Miss Voon restaurant
in Stockholm on June 25th, 2020.
The people that met had long experience
working in the Snus and Cannabis industry. The
discussion was soon transformed into another –
“Is it possible to make a great smokeless
Cannabis alternative in a Snus format?”
The answer was not simple. Traditional snus is
a form of smokeless tobacco inside a pouch
placed under the upper lip. When the pouch
gets wet, nicotine dissolves in the saliva and
easily enters the bloodstream. Cannabis is not
so easily soluble in saliva due to its oily nature,
and would therefore not be absorbed efficiently
by the body if just packed inside a pouch.
A Novel Nano Infused Hemp Formulation
Nanoparticles are small enough to pass straight
through biological membranes, allowing the
hemp to be absorbed directly under the lip.
Uptake from edibles and oils may take up to 45 minutes
to reach the systemic blood circulation with reduced
efficiency due to interaction with the gastrointestinal
tract. Delivery through the oral mucosa, on the other
hand, enters the systemic circulation directly and bypasses
the digestive system and metabolism in the liver.
*compared to conventional smokeless alternatives
In addition to using natural and safe ingredients,
their formulations are free from tobacco, nicotine
and vegan proof. Flavour is essential to the customer
experience, so VOON CBD Pouches are also available in
various carefully curated and developed flavours.
