Top 10 Questions About Vape Carts

1. What Is The Difference Between Vape Carts And Other Types Of Cannabis Cartridges?

Vape carts are typically made from a mixture of propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin as well as cannabis oil, which gives them an extremely high viscosity (or thickness). This makes them perfect for use in a vaporizer pen. By contrast, other types of cannabis cartridges may be made with different ingredients such as medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) coconut oil, or both.



2. How Long Does Each Cartridge Last?

This will depend on the type of vape cart you are using and how heavily you are vaping it. In general, most vapers get about 1-3 hours out of a single cartridge before needing to replace it.



3. What Is The Best Way To Clean A Vape Cart?

The best way to clean your vape cart will vary depending on what it’s made out of, so you’ll need to do some research first. However, in general, trying gently swabbing at the mouthpiece with rubbing alcohol can help get rid of buildup and residue that may be blocking airflow or gumming up your cartridge. This should work for most vape carts that are constructed from plastic or glass components; however, if yours is made from metal, there may be a risk that rubbing alcohol could damage it.  In this case, it is best to avoid cleaning your vape cart in any way that could damage its fragile internal components.



4. How Can I Tell If My Vape Cart Is Bad?

If your vape cart has been stored properly and hasn’t experienced any rough handling, it should last a long time without going bad. However, if you notice that the oil in your cartridge is starting to look cloudy or discolored, this may be a sign that it has gone bad. This could be due to a buildup of mold, bacteria, or oxidation — all of which can pose significant health risks when inhaled. In most cases, you will also notice this type of discoloration on your cartridge’s mouthpiece before noticing any changes in the oil itself.



5. Is It Bad To Inhale All Of The Vape Carts Smoke At Once?

So long as you aren’t doing it excessively, there is no real harm in inhaling all of your cartridge’s smoke at once. However, this can be uncomfortable for some vapers and may cause irritation when used frequently. In addition, if you are using a vape cart that consists of pure propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin and cannabis oil, this is not the best way to get all of the beneficial cannabinoids out of it.


6. How Do I Know If My Vape Cartridges Are Legitimate?

In today’s marijuana market, there are hundreds or even thousands of different vape carts brands and models available. Therefore, it can sometimes be hard to differentiate between legitimate products that have been tested for safety and quality from counterfeit knockoffs that may contain harmful chemicals or defective parts. One of the best ways to determine whether your cartridges are legitimate is to read up about both the brand and model on review sites like Google Reviews, Reddit, and Leafly.



7. What Should I Do If My Vape Cartridges Stop Working?

If your vape carts have stopped working or are not producing vapor, this could be due to a number of different factors. One possibility may be that the coil in your chamber has burned out over time or gotten clogged up with residue. However, if your cartridge isn’t working after you have cleaned or replaced the coil and reassembled it, this could be an indication of a defective component. In either case, the best thing to do is contact customer support for the brand and model that you are using and see if they can offer any solutions.



8. How Can I Tell If My Vape Cartridges Are Overheating?

Overheating is one of the most common issues that lead to a malfunctioning or burning out of a vape cartridge. If your device seems to be getting hotter than normal when you are using it, this could indicate that there is something blocking airflow or preventing your chamber from cooling down between hits. Since overheating can cause damage to both the oil in your vape cart and the device itself, it is best to avoid running anything through it that could potentially clog up or restrict airflow.



9. How Often Should I Buy A New Vape Cartridge?

If you are paying attention to how long each of your cartridges lasts, you should be able to tell just how often you need to replace them. For most vapers, it is best to switch out their carts once they start to lose much of their potency or if they notice that the oil has started to look discolored. Depending on how frequently you use your device and the type of strains that you enjoy, most people will need to replace their cartridges every two to four weeks.



10. What Can I Do If My Vape Cartridge Is Leaking?

Leaking is one of the most common issues that vapers experience with vape carts, and there are a few different reasons why this might be happening. If your device seems to leak more than usual, it could be due to a loose connection between the battery and cartridge or a defective or clogged coil. In addition, if there is too much oil in your chamber, this can sometimes lead to leaking. If you ensure that all of the parts are fully tightened and that there isn’t any excess oil building up in your chamber, then you may be able to solve this problem.


Overall, there are many benefits to using a vape cartridge. They offer an easy way to consume cannabis oil and can be great for both first time users and long-time vapers alike.
