"I struggled with vaping for 5 years, beginning as a freshman in high school. I went through every new vape, but finally said enough was enough. There had to be a better way to satisfy my habit.

My friends started dying from vaping in late 2019, so I knew something had to be done - a drastic change was needed, fast. The question became: how can we effectively satisfy vaping urges without sacrificing our health and in a cost-effective manner, that's also cool?

Thus, the CAPNOS® Zero was born."

-Brendan Wang, Founder


Vaping has become such a routine part of our lives. 
Why do we vape so often and why is it so hard to quit?

For many, vaping is a behavioral addiction. We've surveyed over 1,000 vape users and found that every 2 in 3 people vape for an oral fixation or a desire to fidget with something. 

In the first week of using the CAPNOS® Zero, our beta testers already reduced their vaping by 50% and some have quit vaping altogether. 

We've discovered that it's not always about the nicotine. It's not always about the smoke. Sometimes, all we're really craving is something to inhale or fidget with. That's where we come in.
