Shocking Adolescent Vape Use Statistics
What Is JUUL?
JUUL is one of a few prolific e-cigarette brands that use nicotine salts, which allow particularly high levels of nicotine to be inhaled more easily and with less irritation than the free-base nicotine that has traditionally been used in tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. JUUL is known to be sold and advertised as containing fruity flavors that are appealing to adolescents and young adults. All of these factors have led to numerous young Americans falling into nicotine and JUUL addictions.
Nicotine and JUUL Addiction Risks
For teenagers, nicotine poses particular risks because it affects brain development, with negative effects on the areas of the brain that regulate attention, learning, and impulse control. Teens who use nicotine are at substantially elevated risk for developing a lifelong nicotine addiction. Despite the common misconception that e-cigarettes are safer than smoking, a growing body of evidence indicates that long term effects of vaping are incredibly detrimental to physical and mental health.

JUUL Vapor is Not Simply Water Vapor
What Is “Vapor?”
E-Juice uses a base liquid which is either Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin, Nicotine, and flavorings. The Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin act as propellants that allow nicotine and flavoring to be vaporized into an inhalable aerosol. With that said that brings up the question are each of these components safe to inhale?
“Food Safe” Does not mean safe to inhale
Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin are both generally regarded as safe for oral consumption, however not much long term data is out there to understand the effects of vaping these two liquids. In controlled lab settings, Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin were found to inhibit cell reproduction. Likewise, Little to no research has been done on flavors like Vanillin and Cinnamaldehyde, which are examples of widely used flavorings that are not FDA approved for inhalation.
