In a bid to be healthier in the New Year, many people may have given up smoking.

It’s not always easy to go cold turkey, though, so things like e-cigarettes and vaping might be viable options to cut down.

You may have new trend in the word of e-cigarettes recently, and that’s Juuling (a term used to describe smoking with a Juul device).

But is it different to normal vaping, and can you get Juul here in the UK?

Juul is somewhat similar to a standard e-cigarette in that it releases a vapour and gives you a hit of nicotine. It’s also USB-rechargeable.

Unlike traditional vapes, however, it uses a closed system, so can’t be refilled with normal vape liquid. Instead, you use a Juul-pod, which you simply slot into the device.

The pods come in flavours like Mango Nectar, Royal Creme, Golden Tobacco, and Glacier Mint, but it releases less visible vapour and less of a strong smell than many e-cigs.

The company are also trying to be different from the vapes you see on the high street with the design and usability.

There are no buttons or switches, so you insert the pod and pull on it like you would a normal cigarette.

One Juul-pod, delivers about 200 puffs, about as much nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.

This can be a good idea for regular smokers (and Juul is currently the leading e-cigarette company in the USA), but the company have been investigated multiple times by the Food and Drug Administration due to widespread reported use by teenagers.

An online survey conducted in November 2017 found that 7% of American teenagers aged 15 to 17 reported having used a Juul, with another survey finding the majority of teens did not realise nicotine was addictive.

Men’s Fitness magazine called it ‘the iPhone of e-cigs’, which may give some sort of explanation to why it’s been so popular.

It has now expanded into the UK, so you can buy their products on their website.
