The Juul Phenomenon: How many people you know are using it?

Was browsing the finance meme accounts on instagram and noticing that a majority of the posts/stories involve Juuls. How common is their usage really in finance? Do your coworkers actually use it - and were they cigarette smokers before they started vaping?

It's actually insane that you mention this - three people on my desk have them and there are a bunch more on the floor who I've seen using them. If the Juul's target audience is urban yuppies, they seem to have hit the bullseye.

Do they use it while they're at their desks? Or do they have to go outside or to the restroom or somewhere else?

as a senior fraternity member at a large state school, I can safely say that 65% of the student body owns a juul

My high school brother and his friends are super into them. He just got suspended for using it in class. It's just a regular ass e-cig. I have no idea what they're on about.

On a related note, I got a G-Pen Pro yesterday and it sucks. Might try a Firefly 2. Am I doing weed vapes wrong or do they just suck compare to smoking?

There are some good ones out there. I tried one last week that was really strong.

Was it handheld? I've had 3 vapes now - one desktop - and they all are just a waste of weed. But I haven't tried the $500+ ones.

vape hash oil bro, smoke/ cook regular herb.

May 15, 2018

I don't know where to get any, dude. I've only ever hit a rig or a nail or whatever once. Somewhat ironically, this was at the house of a couple I'd stop by and sell an ounce to every Friday like 4 years ago. I don't know dick about that shit. I'd also really love a source for clean edibles. Ideally just like some coconut oil or olive oil with weed. Can't wait for pot to be legal so I can just buy some like an adult. I'm not cool anymore bro I don't know any drug dealers

Edit: OK so wait, can you confirm that I can stop wasting money buying incrementally more expensive vapes if I'm not gonna use oil?

I've had much more success with desktop vapes w/ flowers. Check out the Cloud Evo ($500+) or E-nano ($200).

May 15, 2018

Thanks man. I might try that E-nano.

I said to use oil because it is a vast improvement on vaping buds. Vaping buds works but oil is far more convenient and effective. You don't have anyone to get herb from? That's tragic.

As for edibles: just make your own butter/ oil. It's easy.

May 16, 2018

I get herb but he doesn't carry anything else. I found a legit AF oil recipe here. Might give it a try: https://wakeandbake.co/cannabis-infused-coconut-oil/

Yea bro it's very simple. Heat your buds ("decarboxylate") at about 200 in the oven for like 30-45 mins. After that you just simmer it with the oil for a few hours (at least 3, the longer the better) then strain out the buds. That's it.... not complicated at all. Butter requires a bit more finesse but it's the same general idea.

May 16, 2018

Have you tried cooking it in a crock pot for like 12 hours like they recommend? Have you tried using coconut oil? That article says it's the best because it's 90% saturated fat.

A crock pot would be best,g et the most extraction and you don't have to babysit as much. I use butter because it is the fattiest, but coconut oil should work well. The more fat the better (that's what the THC sticks to).

May 16, 2018

Coconut oil has 30% more saturated fat than butter. They're both 100% fat. From what I gather, it's the saturated fat cannabinoid stick to.

Fair enough, maybe I'll try coconut oil sometime.

A pot head. That makes sense.

I have a G-Pen Elite. My tolerance is super low bc I barely use it but you generally start on 320-350ish F and work your way up to 400. Make sure your screen is cleaned (that's the biggy), and that you stir your herb (has to be really ground) here and there.

May 15, 2018

Shit, I think I've gotta clean the screen every bowl then. And those bowls are tiny. Mine is probably half the size of yours. What a pain in the dick.

I'm 20 and know fuckloads of peers that use Juuls. It's just hype/a social fad similar to fidget spinners, but for "adults." They do it to look cool and develop a nicotine addiction for the social media clout.

I guess it's a good alternative for people who actually are trying to get off cigs, but 99% of the dudes I know do it just to do it. None of them smoked cigs prior

Use them in my bank when I go to the bathroom. Nicotine gives a boost of energy? so I rip it during the late nights. Also fuck banking so dig the slight buzz. Multiple kids in my analyst class also use them. Not a sober cig smoker before - don't think coworkers were either.

In school: lots. at least 50% of people I know

At work: just me (that I know of), but everyone on my team is at least 7 years older than me.

I used to use tobacco (lots of dip and occasionally cigs) when I drank, and it's been fairly helpful as a substitute for those. Although there is nothing in this world that is as satisfying as a drunk cig

May 15, 2018

I use nicotine gum. Better on all fronts imo

I think I figured out my coughing issue. I think I've been spending too much time in the sauna. I've been sitting in there at 200F for like 45 min a day. The smoking probably isn't helping, but I think it might be largely the sauna use. I'm gonna try a. Going down to every other day and b. Finishing off with 5 min in the steam room to rehydrate my lungs.

I want to try Juul too.

Jul 31, 2018

Literally half of my analyst/associate pool smoke JUULs. I have one that I smoke occasionally as well since I'm quitting smoking cigarettes (Parliament and Lucky Strike have collectively received at least 1 years bonus from me over the past 10 years). I sometimes catch the younger guys ducking into empty conference rooms to rip their JUUL which is funny to me so I don't say anything to them.

Since I am older than 30, absolutely no one. Seems to be big with college kids though.

College Senior here -- 9/10 people I know hit the JUUL
