JUUL

Quick facts about America's JUUL phenomenon

  • One JUUL pod contains the same amount of nicotine as 20 cigarettes, making it highly addictive

  • Plugs into a USB port to charge, conveniently looks like a flash drive

  • Nicotine delivered in an aerosol, not a vapor. Vapor is water, aerosols are made up of particles and chemicals, most of which do not have sufficient research on long term effects

  • In August of 2017, JUUL comprised 24% of all e-cigarette sales, and by October of 2018, JUUL accounted for 75% of all e-cigarette sales.
