Vaping is a matter of considerable public attention due to its rapidly increasing popularity among youth. However, little research has focused on what substance is being vaped by young people in the United States.

Nicotine, generally found in tobacco cigarettes, is often the assumed substance of vaping. A recent study by Ruoyan Sun, [...] shows that 35 percent of 12- to 14-year-olds, 51.3 percent of 15- to 17- year-olds and 54.6 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds reported the use of cannabis while vaping.

“This study attempts to distinguish cannabis vaping from nicotine vaping when many people mistakenly interpret vaping as only using nicotine,” Sun said.
