Even before the whole VAPI (Vaping Associated Pulmonary Injury) debacle in the US, briefly covered here, former FDA commissioner was not happy with pod mods. JUUL in particular. On several occasions over the course 2018, Mr Gottlieb was insistent that JUUL alone was the cause of, what he called, an “epidemic” of youth use of e-cigarettes.
Uwell have been around a while and have made several different tanks and mods. Famous, mostly, for the Crown tank that produces an incredible amount of flavour (and cloudage), they have turned their attentions to pod vaping. They have three pod mods but I’m looking at the one that I, initially, thought was just a gimmick.
Blu, as a brand, has been around for a while. Since 2009 to be exact. Back then, it was an independent brand. Since 2012, it’s been owned by two tobacco companies – firstly Lorillard, later acquired by RJ Reynolds that sold the Blu brand to Imperial Brands (via Fontem Ventures). It wasn’t until Imperial acquired Von Erl that the pod mod known as the MyBlu starter kit came into existence. Anyway on to our MyBlu starter kit review.
