In this case Juul— vape brand doesn’t necessarily matter. The brand itself was probably chosen based on popularity. Solutions contained are largely homogeneous save ratios.

Generally speaking, the vape juice is broadly going to be a mix of propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, with the %10 percent dedicated to nicotine, flavoring, dye. Nic salt is combining nicotine with an acid to produce a salt better absorbed by the body (juul, common throwaway vapes).

"generally" doesn't interest me, personally. "generally" anything I can buy at a store with money, is reasonably safe for use.

it's the wierd off-brands coming from suspicious places, containing unknown chemicals, that I think are worth looking into more, in addition to the overall study.

I was responding to your question why they chose Juul — it’s a popular brand that uses a juice composition pretty standard to the industry. The benefit of this choice being that any findings may be broadly applicable to vaping (as a practice).
