E-cigarette use among teens and young adults

Teens and young adults are especially at risk for the negative effects related to nicotine. Their brains are still developing up to the age of 25. Nicotine changes how the brain works. 

The number of Canadian young people surveyed who said they had ever tried vaping rose to 40.6 per cent in 2019 from 29.3 per cent in 2017. In Canada, we saw a rise in vaping rates for youth in 2018 which coincides with the introduction of a nicotine salt vape product (e.g. Juul). Advertisers used lifestyle marketing strategies to appeal to teens and young adults which seemed to have a dramatic impact on the uptake of these products. Juul came under heavy criticism for this strategy and has since pulled the marketing campaigns.
