JUUL is called “highly addictive,” but the company may develop a new product that helps users get rid of the habit once and for all.
The San Francisco company has filed a patent that describes an artificial intelligence product that delivers fewer nicotine amounts to the user by learning their smoking habits over time.
The document highlights a device that alternates between nicotine and a non-nicotine product to gradually reduce the intake of the drug.
The device can also be connected to a smartphone that can record how much nicotine is being consumed, allowing the device to determine how the drug should be regulated, as first reported by The logic.

JUUL has filed a patent describing a product with artificial intelligence (stock) that delivers fewer nicotine amounts to the user by learning his smoking habits over time
JUUL started as a way to offer the billion billion smokers in the world an alternative to combustible tobacco products.
With the goal of completely eliminating smoking, Nielsen believes that JUUL is now the number one vapor product in the United States.
But the patent, published last summer and recently made public, may help the company to deliver on its promise.
The document says that a “controller can apply machine learning to adjust the release of nicotine and / or non-nicotine vaporizable material” based on user behavior – and
The user’s behavior, in turn, “can be learned by monitoring the use of the evaporator and the user’s behavior.”

JUUL was founded in 2015 by Stanford design students Adam Bowen and James Monsees, who applied their knowledge of technological innovation and industrial design to make an e-cigarette product.
And although Monsees said they developed Juul for adult smokers who want to quit and never want a non-nicotine user, and certainly no one under the legal age of purchase, to ever use JUUL products, their marketing tactics seem to say otherwise.
Washington DC, California, New York and North Carolina, all of which have filed similar lawsuits against JUUL that the online advertisements and promotions of the e-cigarette manufacturer were aimed illegally at minors.
DC Attorney General (AG) Karl Racine announced the lawsuit in November 2019 and claimed that the company “created a teenage health crisis by” deliberately targeting underage consumers “and” misleading consumers about the content, strength, and safety of hair products ‘.
Racine claims that viral marketing, consisting of colorful advertisements and trendy flavors, has contributed to the increase in underage vape among teenagers in the US.
“JUUL has created a public health emergency in the district and nationwide by marketing its highly addictive nicotine products to children and by not warning consumers of the harmful effects of e-cigarettes – all in their pursuit of profit,” said AG Racine in a press release.
“With this lawsuit we are trying to hold JUUL responsible for his illegal practices that unfairly and unknowingly dragged a new generation into nicotine addiction.”
Last year, an epidemic of mysterious pulmonary-related lung diseases swamped the nation, making 2,172 people sick, and killed 47 Americans in 25 states and DC.
The majority of victims who have fallen ill are men and under the age of 35, with the ages of those who died ranging from 17 to 75.
Health officials have stated that teenagers and young people make up the majority of the diseases, because flavored e-cigarettes were brought onto the market.
Most diseases are the result of people taking a combination of THC, the main psychoactive component in marijuana, and nicotine vapen
Although JUUL’s products contain nicotine and no THC, politicians have used the epidemic to regulate the maker of e-cigarettes.
What is an e-cigarette and how does it differ from smoking tobacco?
An electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) is a device that allows users to inhale nicotine by heating a vapor from a solution containing nicotine, propylene and flavorings.
Because there is no burning, there is no smoke like a traditional cigarette.
But although they are branded as a lower risk than cigarettes, an increasing wave of investigations shows health hazards.
E-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide, but the vapor does contain some harmful chemicals.
Nicotine is the highly addictive chemical that makes it difficult for smokers to quit.
Nearly three million people in the UK use e-cigarettes and more than nine million Americans.
1. Standard e-cigarette
Battery-powered device containing nicotine e-liquid.
It evaporates flavored nicotine liquid.
Very similar to normal e-cigarettes, but with a slimmer design and a higher concentration of nicotine.
Thanks to the ‘nicotine salts’, manufacturers claim that one pod delivers the amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes.
It consists of an e-cigarette (battery and temperature control) and a pod e-liquid that is introduced at the end.
The liquid contains nicotine, chemicals and flavorings.
Like other evaporation devices, it evaporates the e-liquid.
3. IQOS by Philip Morris
Pen-shaped, charged like an iPod.
It is known as a ‘heat not burn’ smokeless device that heats tobacco but does not burn (at 350 ° C compared to 600 ° C as normal cigarettes do).
The company claims that this method reduces the exposure of users to carcinogenic burning tobacco.
