The Juul, which was launched two years ago has been one of the most popular e-cigarettes. The Juul has been called the “iPhone of e-cigs”, and it is a favorite among young adults.
The electronic cigarette is a battery-powered device that converts liquid into vapor. This vapor can be inhaled. They can deliver nicotine just like regular cigarettes, but without the use of tobacco or burning. This is why electronic cigarettes are considered safer than traditional cigarettes.
The Juul is now viral on the internet. It has inspired a lot of memes and jokes via Instagram and Twitter.
The term “vaping” or “vape culture has been a popular topic on social media in recent years. The Juul, however, has taken on an entirely new life. On Instagram alone, there are more than 50,000 posts with the hashtag #Juul. There are also many videos and tweets about it. Some Juul content is not encouraging the use e-cigarettes, as this video shows. The Juul is a popular product that people love and hate, but it has people talking.
Teenagers, who are still under the legal age to buy or use ecigarettes, brag about their “Juuling” on social networks. This raises concerns about young people using ecigarettes.
Juul is being used by so many high school students that administrators have to send emails to parents concerned.
What are the health effects of e-cigarettes?
The Juul is a portable nicotine-delivery device that mimics the experience of smoking, but doesn’t look like one.
E-cigarettes deliver a strong dose of nicotine every puff, and can be as addictive as traditional cigarettes.
BuzzFeed News’ Ashley Gould, chief administrative officer of Juul, explains that the Juul has two parts. The bottom is the device which contains the temperature regulation system and battery, while the top is the eliquid cartridge. You can also use the cartridge as the mouthpiece. Simply insert it into your Juul and you are good to go. The Juul device can be charged and has a USB charger you can plug into your computer or charging block.
The Juul is different from other e-cigarettes in that there are no settings. The Juul detects when you pull on the mouthpiece, and heats up to vaporize any liquid inside. “The Juul isn’t user-modifiable, and has a special temperature-regulation technology to prevent overheating or combustion,” Gould says. It’s also less likely to explode or burn than other vapes.
E-liquid cartridges (or “Juul pods”) come in many flavors, including “cool mint” or “fruit medley”, and contain about the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.
Gould states that Juul pods are a mixture of nicotine, propylene glycol and glycerol, as well as flavorings and nicotine. Although the health effects of inhaling these ingredients isn’t known, one thing is certain: Nicotine can be addictive and every Juul pack a lot of nicotine. The nicotine content of the pod is 0.7mL or 59 mg/mL. This is roughly equivalent to 200 cigarettes.
The Juul is a closed system, meaning that the user does not refill the juice like they do with tanks. This allows for greater quality control. Gould states that the FDA has conducted a thorough screening to make sure the flavorants and ingredients are not on the list of ‘Harmful’ and ‘potentially harmful constituents.
The Juul device is generally priced between $35 and $50, while a set of four Juul pods in UK will cost $15.99. According to the company, the pods are available in classic flavors like Virginia tobacco, cool mint, fruit medley and creme brulee. The pods are $4, which is a bargain when compared to cigarettes that can run more than $10 per pack in New York City after years of hard work and additional taxes to address the health effects of smoking.
Juul is advertised as an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes for adults.
Gould states that “our mission is to get adult smokes to quit smoking.” The Juul is portable and easy to use. It delivers a high-quality dose of nicotine, making it an appealing alternative.
This stick-shaped design was created to appeal to people who are trying to quit smoking. Gould states that the designers tried to create a product that would not visually remind people of cigarettes, as they were trying to quit smoking. However, it still provides the same nicotine delivery and other sensory aspects as a cigarette. Juul doesn’t produce any byproducts, which means you won’t exhale a noxious cloud of smoke or vapor. It is also easier to use indoors, even though many bars and restaurants have banned vapes and e-cigarettes.
Gould says, “We are confident that more than 500,000 smokers have switched to the Juul,” but this number is still increasing. According to the American Lung Association, FDA has not approved any electronic cigarette as a safe and effective way to quit smoking. The FDA is currently reviewing applications for the company’s clinical and nonclinical research.
The Juul is attractive to adult smokers because of its discreet design, delicious flavors, and appealing appearance. It’s also a popular choice for teens.
It’s discreet, looks like a flash drive and is easily hidden at home or school. But it’s trendy and available in cool flavors so it’s everything teens want. “I’m not surprised they’re getting hooked,” Dr. Harold J. Farber (associate professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine) tells BuzzFeed News. Farber is also a pulmonologist at Texas Children’s Hospital.
It is illegal for anyone under 18 to buy e-cigarettes and other tobacco products. However, teens under 18 are still finding ways to obtain them. The FDA reported that ecigarette use increased from 1.5% to 16% in high school students to 2015. Middle school students were able to get e-cigarettes at 0.6% to 5.3%. In 2016, more than 2 million students went to high school or middle school to smoke e-cigarettes.
Juul stated that they don’t want a teen market, despite the fact that Juul has seen a spike in usage among young people. “We don’t want teens using Juul. “This product is for adult smokers who want to quit smoking. We are working hard to prevent youth from using the Juul,” Gould states.
The Juul is more secure than regular cigarettes. However, e-cigarettes are not considered safe.
BuzzFeed News is told by Dr. Michael Siegel from Boston University. He says that electronic cigarettes are “without a doubt safer than regular cigarettes” and that there have been no immediate health problems. However, e-cigarettes can be just as harmful as tobacco cigarettes.
Juul also agrees. Juul agrees. According to their website, “no tobacco products or e-liquid products should ever be considered safe.” We encourage consumers to conduct their own research on vapor products and determine what is best for them.
E-cigarettes may be safer than combustible cigarettes for nicotine delivery, but they are not safe. Farber states that you inhale more than just the ‘vapor’. It’s also irritants, toxins and nicotine. You are still inhaling chemicals, especially if you use flavoring agents. E-cigarettes can cause asthma and other lung diseases, even though there aren’t any immediate health risks.
Nicotine is addictive so you shouldn’t start smoking the Juul or any other electronic cigarette.
Researchers are most worried that young people, who aren’t smokers, will use e-cigarettes. They believe it’s harmless. E-cigarettes such as the Juul are addictive because they contain nicotine. The theory is that an e-cigarette user could become addicted to nicotine, and eventually quit smoking regular cigarettes.
The Juul is a strong vape that delivers nicotine. This means that it can help adult smokers quit smoking. Siegel states that the Juul has a greater addiction potential than other vapes for youth.
If you aren’t currently using tobacco products, it’s a good idea to stop. Nicotine dependence can be a serious problem. Nicotine is addictive. It’s unquestionable. We don’t want anyone who doesn’t use nicotine to use the Juul,” Gould states.
Farber states that while we don’t yet know the long-term effects of e-cigarettes on health, we do know that nicotine can have a negative effect on brain development — particularly in children.”
E-cigarettes are still very new and there hasn’t been enough research to examine the long-term effects. Farber states that there isn’t enough research to know the effects of e-cigarettes on long-term health. However, we do know what nicotine does and it’s not bad.
Farber states that nicotine can cause brain damage and act as a neurotoxin, making it difficult for the brain to function normally. Farber warns that nicotine can be dangerous for children and teens, as their brains are still developing. Also, nicotine acts as a gateway drug to other drugs like heroin and cocaine.
Although the effects of inhaling secondhand smoke from e-cigarettes remain to be determined, experts recommend that parents not allow their children to vape. Farber states that pregnant women should not use electronic cigarettes because nicotine can be harmful to the baby’s health and could lead to brain and lung damage.
This is it. E-cigarettes can help smokers quit smoking but they can also be used to give nicotine to young people.
Siegel states that there is evidence to support the effectiveness of electronic cigarettes in harm reduction. However, it’s a double-edged sword.
It is still a debate whether the benefits of ecigarettes outweigh the costs. This may be why FDA regulation has been slow. The FDA requires that all new tobacco products, including those regulated by e-cigarettes be labeled with a warning about nicotine addiction, starting in 2018.
Farber states, “If it were about getting adult smokers off cigarettes, I would be happy — but the problem with e-cigarettes is that people are using them who weren’t smoking so we risk hooking up a new generation of nicotine.”
Talk to your children about smoking, e-cigarettes and nicotine addiction as soon as possible.
Farber states that children need to be able to recognize how addictive nicotine can be and that it can impact their health, performance at school, and future addictions. Experts recommend that parents have open discussions with their children and their pediatrician regarding e-cigarettes or other tobacco products. Farber states, “It’s all about teaching children at an early age and getting their commitment to stopping using nicotine — because the sooner you start using nicotine the more difficult it will be to stop.”
Gould claims that the company is working to remove images of teens using the Juul on social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter. Gould states that the social media posts have been detrimental because teens shouldn’t be using our products. He also says that there are substantial prevention efforts in place.
The company now has a website that is 21+ to prevent people under the age of 18 from purchasing products online and lying about their age. Gould also stated that they continue to work on the most up-to-date age verification technology.
Gould states that they recently hired a full time director of youth prevention education and have begun working with schools to prevent Juul use among students.
We mentioned that the FDA has yet to approve any electronic nicotine delivery system as safe or effective as a method of helping smokers quit smoking. Farber states that there are medications, patches, and gums that can be used to treat tobacco dependence.
While e-cigarettes may be a good option for some, they are not the only way to quit smoking. If you want to quit smoking, it is important to do your research and consult your doctor to determine the best option for you.
Juul is not marketed to adults who smoke cigarettes but as an alternative. The company is currently submitting FDA applications. An earlier version of this article misstated the submission process.
