Let’s face it. Vaping is in, as smoking is steadily losing popularity. The advantages of vaping (or eCig) is not only on using nicotine at reduced quantity but also economical. It likewise does not pose as a health threat to …proximate persons.
In New Jersey, a young Filipino-American entrepreneur, Christian Angeles has seen that his wholesale distribution business on e-cig is vigorously growing even in the first eight months of the enterprise, Prestige Vaping. Angeles, also an events organizer, is in partnership another young Filipino entrepreneur Andy Fernandez.
“People prefer it because it is less harmful than smoking, a lot more healthier and so much economical,” he said.
A $5-10 worth of propylene gylcol is equivalent to 5-8 packs of cigarette at $14 in New York.
Vaping, he said, also eliminates one’s fixation with the hookah.
Angeles plans to expand his business in the coming months and will set up a light box in his store to attract the driving commuters.
The Grimm.com explains that vaping utilizes a Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin based liquid (also called eJuice), mixed with small amounts of nicotine and food grade flavoring that then get vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer. It simulates the experience of smoking. The vapor created is inhaled and exhaled much like cigarette smoke, hence the vaping.
Interestingly, Angeles’ major source for the vegetable glycerin has been the Philippines and California, which actually boosts local industries.
Atomizers, on the other hand, come in various prices, ranging from $20 to $450.
The truth is, Angeles said, “the tobacco industry is threatened by this emerging einterprise. So far, we are doing so good.”
