UPDATE: A December 2019 case study in the European Respiratory Journal linked a California man’s vape use to the development of cobalt lung.
On September 9, 2019, the FDA sent a warning letter to JUUL Labs that it had illegally marketed its product as a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes. In fact, the letter cites excerpts from a statement made by a JUUL representative while giving a presentation to children at school. The representative told the school children that JUUL products were “99% safer” than cigarettes, “much safer” than cigarettes, “totally safe,” and “a safer alternative than smoking cigarettes.” The FDA letter points out that JUUL Labs failed to obtain federal approval prior to marketing and selling its products as a healthier alternative to tobacco cigarettes.
A new American Stroke Association study found that E-cigarettes are linked to a 71 percent higher risk of stroke. JUUL Labs’ marketing, with its candy-like flavors, youthful images, and bright colors, appeals to and targets teenagers.
JUUL Labs is now being sued by a 22-year-old JUUL device user who suffered a massive stroke after becoming addicted to JUUL’s E-cigarette products as a teenager. The law firm of Nadrich & Cohen is actively pursuing claims against the company on behalf of JUUL E-cigarette users who suffered a serious JUUL side effect injury, while under the age of 26.

JUUL Side Effects
As compared to combustible cigarettes, JUUL and other vaping pens and E-cigarettes haven’t been around long enough to be studied thoroughly, and thus a complete list of their side effects is impossible to compile. However, nicotine use has been thoroughly studied and carries with it the following side effects:
- Heart Attack
- High Blood Pressure
- Nicotine Poisoning
- Serious Lung Issues
- Heart Problems
- Respiratory Problems
- Nicotine Addiction
JUUL devices increase the risk for developing these side effects because the interchangeable pods contain high nicotine levels, more than found in other E-cigarette devices and in combustible tobacco cigarettes. One of the reasons the nicotine concentration is so high in JUUL products is because the company uses a proprietary nicotine salt formula which allows for higher nicotine intake as compared to combustible cigarettes.

JUUL Health Risks
JUUL’s E-cigarette pods contain 5% nicotine by volume, which is double the concentration found in similar traditional tobacco cigarettes. This means that addiction is a huge risk for teens when it comes to using JUUL E-cigarettes.
Other JUUL device health risks include:
- Increased likelihood of teens and youth switching to standard cigarette use in the future
- Impairment of brain development of people under the age of 25 due to the use of nicotine products
- The lithium-ion batteries that power JUUL E-cigarettes can explode, injuring users
Is JUUL Bad For You?
Unlike traditional tobacco cigarettes, JUUL vapes and other E-cigarette devices haven’t been around long enough to complete long-term studies on their health risks. However, we already know quite a bit about the effects of e-cigarettes on the human body, and what we do know is not good for teens and youth who use vaping products.
The new American Stroke Association study found that E-cigarette users:
- Have a 59% higher risk of heart attack or angina
- Have a 40% higher risk of coronary heart disease
- Have double the rate of coronary artery disease as compared to tobacco cigarette smokers
- 2 % of E-cigarette users reported having a stroke
- Elevated blood pressure and heart rate.
How To Join Lawsuit Against JUUL
Several new JUUL vaping cases have been filed against JUUL Labs in Court. The lawsuits allege that the company negligently marketed and advertised its product to teenagers and youth. We also believe that the company misrepresented Juul products and vaping risks.
JUUL Labs’ advertising to teens and youth was so successful that there is now widespread use of Juul products among high school students and young adults across the country. JUUL product usage has the potential to cause serious health conditions, injury, and nicotine addiction.
