Welcome to the University of Vermont E-Cigarette Flavor Study. This research study, supported by the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration, is looking at whether flavors change the effects of e-cigarettes (vapes) that contain nicotine.
We will be recruiting individuals who are 21 and older who currently smoke tobacco cigarettes and use a JUUL e-cigarette to come to our University of Vermont Lab for a screening visit and four additional visits over a 2-3 week period. During the initial visit, participants will be asked to identify their preferred and non-preferred JUUL pod flavors (from Classic Tobacco, Virginia Tobacco and Menthol) and complete surveys. During the four testing visits, participants will be asked to puff their preferred and non-preferred flavor in low and high nicotine doses and complete surveys. Participants are asked to abstain from all nicotine and tobacco products for 16 hours prior to each testing visit.
Eligible particpants can earn up to $200 for completing all study tasks.
