The five best cannabis vape cartridges

Weed vaping is popular because of its health benefits, portability, and discretion. In addition to standard 510-threaded cartridges, there are pods or cartridges that work with a specific company’s hardware, disposable pens that are thrown away after use, etc.

What’s the best way to find one? Whatever your preferences are, we offer the best vape cartridges to suit your needs. We’ve combined quality weed, extraction skills, and vape hardware.

We’ve got some tips down below on how to find a high-quality cart that’ll set your mind and body straight if you can’t find them or don’t want them.

PAX Era pods

Vape pens have been popular with PAX for many years. Their PAX Era is the crown jewel among their many vape products.

Its technology is praised for delivering smooth and flavorful hits, and its app is praised for allowing users to control temperature and dose throughout a session.

Partners of PAX are located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. You can find a PAX Era pod at a dispensary near you if marijuana is legal in your state.

Raw Garden live resin cartridges

It is delicious to use these Raw Garden 510 cartridges. Besides being delicious, they’re highly effective-you’ll get high like no other.

One issue with vape carts in general, for people who smoke weed every day like Nate Dogg told you to, is that the high doesn’t really get you high. I just figured I’d throw in a wee little tooter until I got back to some flower or dab. You’ll get HIGH with Raw Garden’s live resin cartridges.

They work well with DMT cartridges too, and their vape batteries are powerful and long-lasting. Just an FYI.

Airgraft 2 live resin pods

Canada-based Airgraft operates in California. Eventually, they’ll cover the entire nation. Due to the way heat is cycled through the battery and chamber, their system only heats, never burns, oil.

There are two reasons why they are here: Airgraft 2 and Pod. It’s the Papaya Live Resin pod that I love the most, it’s so damn delicious. In addition, the effects are powerful. Airgraft 2 puffs truly are all it takes to get you zooted in no time.

Airo Pro AiroPods

I am in love with the Airo Pro. Unlike the previous system, this one uses its own battery and cartridges. The battery is awesome because when it is hit, it vibrates, allowing you to measure how much to take.

They sell only AiroPod cartridges, but their oil is not to be missed: It tastes great, it’s fun to vape, and there are a whole lot of options, such as CBD oil, distillates, and terpenes.

They are available in California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona, which is a cherry on top.

Olio 2nd press solventless rosin cartridges

Tasty, are the words that describe these carts. There is an extract made by Olio in Colorado that is great for dabs as well as vape pens. The vape side of their business offers solventless rosin, solventless rosin from 2nd presses, live resin, and CBD cartridges with a 510 thread.

510 cartridges made with their 2nd press solventless rosin are some of the most flavorful I’ve ever tasted. The process of pressing rosin generates leftover oil, which is then pressed into rosin carts and bottled, hence the term “second press.”

It makes for some tasty vapor, so you should definitely give it a shot if you live in Colorado. It’s their Purple Marmalade cart that’s the right move.

Honorable mentions:

In Oregon, Echo Electronics cartridges

  • California-based AbsoluteXtracts cartridges
  •         Orchid Essentials cartridges in Oregon, California, Colorado, and Oklahoma

How to find a quality vape cartridge

The vape cartridge market is flooded with options. These tips will help you find a high-quality cart no matter your mood or feeling if you don’t like any of the above carts.

Type of vaporizer and battery

Your battery type should be your first consideration when selecting a vape cart. The Vessel Expedition offers a long battery life and a variety of temperature settings so that you can use 510 cartridges and oils from the largest range.

You have already chosen what type of hardware you want, so you’re limited to choosing oils from that particular brand if you choose a closed-pod system like PAX Era or Airo Pro.

Cannabis oil

When looking for a quality vape cartridge, the most important thing to consider is whether it contains THC or CBD. While other cannabinoids exist, THC and CBD tend to dominate. At this time, producers aren’t able to produce CBG, CBN, and other minor cannabinoids on a mass scale.

The difference is that THC gets you high while CBD doesn’t-and people still report that CBD has a calming effect. Find out more about the two here.

Potency and terpenes

Consider THC/CBD percentage and terpene content when looking at a cartridge’s package. It is the percentage of terpenes that determines the flavor, not the level of THC. Getting a clear idea of the high’s effects is also easier if the packaging gives specific terpene names.

THC/CBD percentage determines how strong a high will be; terpene percentage determines how flavorful and dynamic an oil will be.

And you usually can’t have both: If you get a vape cartridge with 90% THC, expect that the flavor will be nil or there will be artificial flavor additives; if you get one with 18% terpenes, expect that it will explode with tasty vapor, but the effects might not punch the hardest.

Extraction method

A vape cartridge’s quality begins and ends with its oil. If you do not know how the oil was made, however, you can determine its taste and effects.

Different distillates, live resins, rosins, etc., have unique flavor profiles. Make sure you are aware of the different types of extracts used in making concentrates, as well as the different vape oil types.

Producer and processor

As you learn the basics of vape technology and oil types, you should also focus on who makes the oil in the cartridge or pod, including producers growing the flowers and processors extracting oil from the buds.

You will be able to gauge the quality and standards of the oil by knowing the specific producers and processors. You might like a company’s vapes if you like their flower or dabs.

Purity and color

Many different types of oils are available. Typically, oil is better if it is golden-amber in color. Your oil should be golden amber in color with a scent of Tree Sap IPA.
