There are two different types of THC vape cartridges, open systems that can be refilled and closed systems that
cannot be refilled. Pre-filled cartridges also have two forms: single-use and disposable. Here is what you need
to know about each kind so you can decide what is best for your smoking experience.

Oil cartridges are essentially the “product” part of a vape pen. These pre-filled cartridges are filled with
THC and/or CBD oils and distillates and then attached to the ‘pen’ which is actually a battery that powers the
heating element. Cannabis-derived or food-derived terpenes can also be added, not only for flavor, but also
because ‘terps’ can affect the type of experience vaping the product will provide. The vape pen, or battery,
uses a hot coil system to heat the oil at low temperature to produce vapor, which is consumed by the user when
inhaled. In modern pens, this is most commonly done simply by pulling through the mouthpiece to activate the
coil, however, some pens are fitted with custom temperature settings and activation buttons.

The oil within the cartridge is where the main event takes place. There are many ways of extracting the active
ingredients from marijuana plants, namely THC and cannabinoids, to convert them into an oil form. Oil
cartridges utilize what is known as solvent-based extraction. Without going too much into the science behind
extraction, which can be highly complex and even dangerous, essentially the solvent will dissolve the solid
form of the plant, leaving a highly concentrated oil. Some of the most common solvent extraction methods
include CO2, BHO (Butane), and EHO (ethanol) based processes. Since all the plant material has been removed,
what you are left with is a compound that can be upwards of 90-100% THC, compared to the original flower that
usually falls between 15%-25%.

Open Systems (Refillable Weed Cartridges)
Pre-filled THC Cartridge
Pre-filled vape cartridges are small glass cartridges that usually contain between 0.5 and 1.0ML of high-THC
cannabis oil. These can come in specific strains that target certain ailments, or hybrid blends that are
advertised according to the flavor rather than the strain. These are the most popular types of cartridges
because you can pop them right on your oil vape as soon as you buy it and don’t have to buy vape juice in bulk.
However, it can be more costly if you smoke frequently and need constant refills, which is why some people
prefer to buy oil in bulk and fill their own cartridge themselves.

Empty (Buy THC Vape Juice Separate)
With empty THC cartridges, you have to buy the vape juice separate. If you smoke frequently, this could be a
more affordable and convenient option than buying a fresh cartridge every time. This way you can also
experiment with different types of cartridges to find one that gives you the best vaping experience. Empty vape
cartridges can be purchased wholesale and in bulk online, but you can also find some at your local head shop.

Closed System (Non-Refillable Weed Cartridges)
Pre-filled – One Use (For example, PAX Era pods)
Pre-filled THC vape cartridges are already filled with your liquid gold concentrate when you purchase them, so
you don’t have to worry about refilling. All you have to do is attach them to a reusable vape pen, which can be
purchased from your favorite head shop or online vape shop. One of the most popular examples of a pre-filled
single-use pod is the PAX Era pods, which are designed specifically for use with the PAX Era vaporizer. Other
popular brands include The Clear, Jetty, State, and Brass Knuckles.

As for why cannabis consumers are turning to oil cartridges over other methods, there are plenty of reasons why
vape pens are a great alternative to traditional flower, edibles, or dabs.

For one thing, oil cartridge vape pens offer easy functionality. As mentioned before, many pens only require
the user to pull, or breath in, on the mouthpiece or simply press a button to activate the coil. And since the
pen heats the oil at lower temperatures, you’re inhaling vapor and not smoke, unlike the combustion process of
smoking flower in joints or bowls. This results in a less harsh inhalation experience for the user, often
making oil cartridges the perfect choice for more novice users or beginners. Variable voltage batteries, or
pens, are becoming the standard for many popular cartridge brands and usually provide 3 levels of heat, which
can vary the ‘robustness’ of the hit.

Speaking of vapor, oil cartridges make consuming cannabis discreet and easy when you’re on the go. The vapor
produced typically has little or no odor, dissipates quickly and doesn’t require major rigs or flame to be able
to consume.Cartridge vape pens are becoming quite sleek and stylish. Companies like PAX are taking pen design
to the next level, making carrying a vape no more noticeable than holding an actual pen or USB drive.

Oil cartridges also make dosing very simple–another plus for those new to cannabis consumption. With quick
onset times and mid-level duration, oil cartridges allow users to gauge their intake to match their desired
effect, much the same as smoking or vaping flower.

THC Vape Pen – One Use
Single-use vape pens are the cartridge and pen all in one, so you don’t need a vape to attach the product to
after purchase, it’s ready to pull from right out of the box. These are the most convenient option if you don’t
want a vape or just want to try something without committing to a setup. Some popular single-use THC vape pen
brands include HMBLDT, Lola Lola, Wildflower, W!nk, and Evoxe Labs.
