A new business in downtown Wapakoneta is offering residents an alternative to cigarettes.

Dew Vapor, located on 3 Perry St., opened its doors Monday. The business, owned by Celina resident Donald Warden, specializes in selling electronic cigarettes, e-liquids and accessories. Warden also owns Grand Lake Vapor in Celina, which opened in November 2012.

Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, use battery power to vaporize a liquid solution, usually flavored, which simulates tobacco smoking. Those who use the product refer to the process as “vaping,” as opposed to smoking.

“It’s a healthier alternative to smoking,” Dew Vapor Store Manager Joe Hughes said. “You don’t have all the carcinogens and toxins a cigarette contains. It’s all food-grade materials plus nicotine.”

Hughes is referring to the common ingredients found in electronic cigarettes. According to the Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association, the five main ingredients in an e-cigarettes include propylene glycol, glycerol, nicotine, water and flavoring.
