More and more people are switching to vaping in an attempt to stop smoking. The e-cigarette market is expected to reach $9 billion by 2026. Juul, one of the bestselling vaporizer brands, has millions of customers worldwide.
Its popularity is partly due to the wide range of vaping products offered and partly due to its cutting-edge technology.
Juul pods, for example, come in several different flavors and strengths, making them ideal for novices and experienced vapers alike. All you need is the Juul device, a sleek vaporizer that can easily fit into your pocket.
But how does a Juul pod work? Is it really a better choice than standard e-liquid? Let’s find out!
What Are Juul Pods?
About 70% of adult smokers want to quit, and about half of them take the steps needed to do so. But, as you probably know, quitting “cold turkey” is challenging at the least.
One way to ease this transition is to use e-cigarettes. That’s where Juul and other vapor products can help.
Juul has emerged as an alternative to traditional cigarettes. Its line of products includes a vaping device, or vaporizer, and cartridges. One cartridge, or pod, is the equivalent of a cigarette pack.
Some companies sell refillable Juul pods. These products can be filled with special e-liquids or even CBD. You just need to know how to use them correctly to avoid a burnt hit—read on here to find out more.
Standard Jull pods are not refillable. They contain a mix of nicotine and different flavors, such as mango, menthol, berry, and tobacco. The flavors available to you depend on your location.
UK consumers, for example, have more options than someone living in Florida or other states that banned flavored e-cigarettes. Most states only allow the use of menthol Juul pods.
What’s in a Juul Pod?
These tiny cartridges contain more or less nicotine, depending on the strength you opt for. There’s also glycerin and propylene glycol, which help create vapor.
Other ingredients include benzoic acid for a cigarette-like feel, as well as a mix of natural and artificial flavors.
Speaking of Juul pod flavors, U.S. consumers can choose between menthol and Virginia tobacco. Both varieties are available in two nicotine strengths: 3% and 5%.
Note that Juul uses pharmaceutical-grade nicotine salts. A recent study reports that these products deliver significantly more nicotine than standard cigarettes and e-cigs. For this reason, they’re likely to affect vascular endothelial function and heart health.
CBD vaporizers, by comparison, don’t contain nicotine. Plus, they’re free of chemicals and may have beneficial effects on health.
What Makes Them So Popular?
Jull vaporizers and pods are sleek, convenient, and easy to use. You simply click the pod into the top of the vaping device and take a pull from the mouthpiece.
Compared to other e-cigarettes, Juul requires no settings. As far as the price goes, Juul pods are much cheaper than cigarettes. Their portability further adds to their appeal.
Take the Time to Research Your Options
Juul pods may or may not be the best choice for you. If you’re a heavy smoker, you’ll likely benefit from switching to a vaping device. The downside is that you’ll still get a lot of nicotine and other potentially harmful chemicals
Research your options and make an informed decision. Compare different brands and types of e-cigarettes and e-liquids, read online reviews, and try several products before choosing one.
