Why is the JUUL so Popular?
It’s 2018 and by now everyone has probably heard of the JUUL by PAX LABS Inc. Yes, that PAX. The same company that brought us the famous PAX and PAX 2 dry herb vaporizers and the more recent PAX 3 combo vaporizer that can vape both loose leaf and concentrates.
Known for being the most technologically advanced – and beautiful – dry herb vaporizer on the market, the PAX quickly became the high-end market leader in the herbal space, and in 2015, the company decided to branch out into the e-cigarette business with the launch of the JUUL
What made the JUUL different than the all other devices was that it was the first to use Nicotine Salts as the core ingredient in its eliquid. In fact, they were even granted a patent that recognized their breakthrough method of providing cigarette-like nicotine delivery.
So, what are Nicotine Salts?
Nic Salts are simply the natural form of nicotine that is found in leaf tobacco. The term ‘salt’ has really nothing to do with sodium or a salty taste. Rather, it describes the crystalline chemical structure of how nicotine atoms are arranged and exist within the tobacco leaf. In tobacco leaves, nicotine bonds with certain acids in the plant to create a more stable molecule.
After experimenting with different natural acids, JUUL settled on using the naturally-occurring benzoic acid to create their patented nic salt and found that its bioavailability (the ability to be absorbed by the body) was just as quick and efficient as traditional, combustible cigarettes.
Up until the launch of the JUUL, all other eliquids or ejuices were using free-base nicotine, which tends to be harsher on the throat at higher concentrations, almost mimicking a black-peppery-like feeling upon inhale. With the JUUL, that harshness was gone and users were able to get that immediate nic satisfaction that they were craving.

So, with the launch of the JUUL, we were introduced to the first mainstream device that used salt nicotine. But more than that, the JUUL offered would-be quitters a simplicity and beauty that was eagerly welcomed.
Some JUUL Advantages
Not only did the JUUL satisfy the cravings with an immediate head rush of nicotine, it was also extremely easy to use with no menus, no buttons, and nothing complicated to learn. There was no mess and no filling tanks. No leaking. You simply had to pop in the pre-filled cartridge and inhale. That’s it! The result was (and is) a smooth, tight, cigarette-like experience that took (and keeps taking) the world by storm.
Today the JUUL is the best-selling e-cig on the market and its popularity in Canada is growing daily. VAPEVINE is proud to be a retailer of authentic JUUL kits and pods.
