Vape THC cartridges

Vape THC cartridges are rapidly growing more popular with new cannabis consumers, and it’s not difficult to fathom why: They are portable, discreet and usually less pungent than flower. During the first four months of 2018, Californians purchased $165 million worth of THC vape juice carts, Coloradans shelled out $62.4 million for them and Oregonians spent $31 million, according to data from BDS Analytics, making cartridges the top-selling product in all three states. Given the hype, let’s examine both cartridges and their contents, as there is a wide range of quality on the market.

Cartridges
While there might be exceptions, cartridges (the vessels holding the cannabis extracts) can largely be categorized as high or low quality.

Typically, low-quality cartridges:

are made of plastic (terpenes can penetrate plastic, and plastic can potentially leach chemicals from the oil),
have poor-quality or ill-fitting O-rings that leak; and
have pre-moistened wicks primed with glycerin or propylene glycol that can cause allergic reactions in some people.
Low-quality cartridges will have a higher customer return rate (if a return policy exists) and will drive away customers who become frustrated with the lackluster experience.

High-quality cartridges typically:

are made of premium materials, such as glass, metal and ceramic;
have properly-sized O-rings; and
have sealed joints that prevent contact between the air and cartridge contents.
Choose your cartridges wisely and always examine the cartridge’s quality. A low-cost cartridge is not necessarily better for your business, and it alerts the customer that the contents might be poor-quality, too.
