JUUL ORLANDO- James Monsees and Adam Bowen, who met at Stanford, co-founded what is now known as JUUL Labs in 2007 to create a switching tool for adult smokers who want to move away from combustible cigarettes.
“Adam and I had been smokers for years, and we knew that smokers who wanted to switch were looking for something that didn’t look or feel like a cigarette,” said James Monsees, Juul Labs co-founder and Chief Product Officer. “That’s why we created JUUL – with adult smokers in mind. It’s a vapor alternative.”
JUUL is a closed-pod vaping system with temperature regulation designed to provide consistent nicotine delivery. According to Science Daily, “vaping is less harmful than smoking” and “switching from tobacco cigarettes to vaping products will reduce a person’s exposure to many toxic and cancer-causing chemicals.”
With a focus on switching, JUUL pods contain five percent nicotine by weight – approximately the same levels as a pack of cigarettes. The pharmacokinetics of JUUL mimic the nicotine delivery of a cigarette, which appears to be important to adult smokers endeavoring to switch.
JUUL Labs is also categorical: JUUL PEN is a product for adult smokers and should be kept out of the hands of minors and non-smokers.
“Combatting teenage use is as important as providing a satisfying alternative to adult smokers, and we are developing and pioneering both technology and programs focused on the prevention of underage use of our products,” said Ashley Gould, Chief Administrative Officer at JUUL Labs. “All of our retail partners must abide by provincial guidelines to ask for identification when selling our products, and our e-commerce platform uses unique ID match and age verification technology to ensure minors can’t access and purchase our products online.”
JUUL is available in our CamisteamVape Shop and on the Company’s e-commerce site in September. Juul Starter kits, which include the JUUL device, USB Docking Station and four Juul vape pod flavors,Virginia Tobacco, Mint, Mango, and Vanilla .
