While 180 Smoke continues to sell JUUL devices and pods in-store, flavour selections are limited, with Mint and Tobacco being the only available options. The decision to alter JUUL’s flavour variety directly relates to a determination made by the FDA in 2020: they prohibited the sales of sweet and fruity e-cigarette pods, although by that point JUUL had already stopped selling those options.
With that in mind, customers might be wondering what the best JUUL alternatives are. Luckily, there are several options available for you to choose from. Keep reading for more information.
Here is the Original JUUL flavour selection for ease of reference when comparing the best JUUL alternatives below:
- Classic/Golden Tobacco
- Virginia Tobacco
RELX Infinity & Essential
The RELX Infinity and Essential are compatible with the full series of RELX Pro Pods. The compact Essential houses a 350mAh cell with USB C charging, and the slightly larger Infinity sports a 380mAh battery with dual charging, including contact pins compatible with the Infinity charging cases that provide another 1000 or 1500mAh of portable power. Both devices are constructed from durable and lightweight aluminum alloy, and are incredibly pocket friendly. The leakproof pods are available in a wide variety of flavours including Tangy Purple, Rich Tobacco, Dark Sparkle, Fresh Red, Garden’s Heart, and Raspy Ruby.
Vuse ePod offers the best 1:1 comparison with the original lineup of JUUL flavours while also offering some of the best bundle prices on the market, including the 5-pack bundle and the Kit-Pod Bundle.
Their flavour selection includes Mango, Cucumber, Vanilla, and multiple varieties of mint including Smooth Mint, Cool Peppermint, Fresh Spearmint, and Polar Mint. It also offers several fruit flavours and a variety of plain and flavoured tobacco, including Smooth Tobacco, Rich Mix, Exotix Mix, and Golden Tobacco, Carmelina Mix, Velvety Mix, and Morado Mix . The pods are sold in 2 packs and contain 1.9ml of e-liquid with your choice of nicotine salt strength, and multiple flavours are also available with Bold + V-Ultra hybrid nicotine.
SnowPlus is a well-established closed pod device from China that has recently entered the Canadian market with an ever-expanding selection of flavours. The SnowPlus Classic Pods feature the original blends with robust flavours and a cool exhale.
Their new Canadian Collection features intense North American flavour blends. SnowPlus also partners with premium Canadian e-liquid companies to deliver a satisfying vaping experience with flavours you already know and love. SnowPlus pods contain 2mL of nic salt e-liquid, and the price varies from $12.99 to $14.99.
STLTH is another closed pod system that delivers a broad range of primary flavours and premium blends. The original line of STLTH Classic pods includes a tobacco blend and cigar, mint and frost, and several fruits and iced fruit options.
The new STLTH Savage pods have a wide variety of premium blends, including Classic Ice, Rocket (popsicle) and Power – packed with enough oomph to keep you going all day. STLTH X pods feature an updated design that delivers more airflow and flavour, using the original device. STLTH pods are $14.99 and come with 3 pods that include 2mL of nic salt e-liquid.
Further, the STLTH Bold Nicotine pods consist of a hybrid nicotine e-liquid that blends freebase and salts. This provides an intense effect that stimulates high-strength options that are no longer available in Canada, due to the 20mg/mL nicotine limit imposed by the federal government.
