Juul is a kind of e-cigarette that has become popular among the teenagers and young adults. It does not resemble an ordinary cigarette. It looks more like a USB device – small and rectangular – and so the adolescents can easily hide it from their parents and teachers.
Interesting point to note that such an e-cigarette can be easily charged on one’s computer by inserting the device into the USB port. The users can easily experience the euphoria of inhaling nicotine by taking in the heated vapor from the charged device. You can easily charge up this tobacco-less apparatus as soon as it runs out of juice.
What is Juuling?
Juuling refers to an innovative smoke-free option of vaping that involves converting vapor into nicotine-filled smoke. The e-cigarette contains extracts of nicotine but no tobacco itself. According to the National Cancer Institute, Juul contains a solution of flavorings, nicotine and other chemicals, many of which are extremely injurious to health.
Juuling involves no use of tobacco. However, it delivers nicotine as effectively as its conventional counterparts and as a result, nicotine quickly gets into the lungs and spreads to the brain.
Due to the potential harmful effects that Juul may inflict on users’ health, anyone under 21 years is not legally eligible to buy the product. Unfortunately, such a legal restriction is often violated just like what we see in case of traditional cigarettes widely used by the younger people. The reality is,Juulis very popular among the middle and high school students. Experts are concerned about the ill effects of Juul as its high nicotine content is very scary.
