Whether we are talking about vape pens, thc cartridges, vapes, or any combination of vaporizers, we are often using different words to describe the same things. Whatever you call it, the use of cannabis vapes is skyrocketing. They are discrete, allow the user to microdose or puff away, and have different flavour experiences than a joint or bong rip. These are only a few of the benefits which we will unpack for you, along with tips for beginners and some fire recommendations from our loyal vape pen customers.
If you never hit a vape pen or cart here’s what you need to know about the experience:
Unlike a joint, blunt or bong, a vape pen and other vaporizers burn smokable cannabis oil at a higher temperature. The vapor that results is more discreet than weed smoke although it does still have an aroma.
Most vape carts clock in above 60% THC, CBD, or other cannabinoids. This is usually higher than most joints, so you don’t need as much to get high! If you’re the micro-dosing type, this higher concentration means you might only need one or two pulls. Even though the price per gram isn’t as cheap as flower, vape pens are a highly efficient vehicle for da weed.
Absolutely! There’s a reason that vape pens are so popular. Of course, not everyone will enjoy that cart life but that’s like everything in cannabis. From the golf course (LINK) to “that walk” after holiday dinners, a vape pen is great for all seasons.
It depends on what type of vape cart you are talking about. In general, vape pens contain smokable cannabis. These are usually oils and sometimes combined with terpenes and additives to create the appropriate viscosity. There are also higher-quality products that contain single-source cannabis flower and solventless extracts.
This comes down to terminology, which may differ depending on where you live. In general, the cartridge (aka “cart”) is the disposable container and mouthpiece that holds the cannabis oil. The vape or vaporizer is the cartridge and the battery. It can also refer to disposable vape pens.
That’s a hard no. In fact, most of the carts are compatible with either 510, or PAX Pods or some are disposable. However, they won’t be able to work with each other so you’ll need to ensure that you have the correct cart and battery setup.
Vape pens range in price and quality. You can find some fire products at all price levels, which range from $20-$80 depending on both the quantity and quality of the cannabis and if you have a reusable battery or not.
Carts were one of our most popular items in the shop this year. Here’s a list of our ten best sellers with some Reddit reviews to help you see what’s the best one for you.
“High: This is where this cart really shines. 860mg/g THC translating to 86% THC. The strain of this cart is Slurricane, a heavy-hitting indica, and the high absolutely reflects that – dreamy headspace, no body pain, blurry vision – that classic “slurry” feeling…. I’m a heavy vaper, but find I only need to hit this one once or twice to feel the full effects. 10/10”
“ A cross between Dosidos and Purple Punch, Slurricane has a sweet flavour profile with notes of subtle grape and sugary berries. The top terpenes are Limonene, A-Cedrene, and b-Caryophyllene. Once harvested, this small batch of flower was flash-frozen and then put through the hydrocarbon extraction process. The resulting terp sauce was blended with high-quality distillate for an aromatic live terpene cart with a flavourful, smooth, and potent vaping experience.”
“Foray- Blackberry Cream 510 Thread Cartridge 80% THC. Tastes like it sounds, heavy-hitting indica. Re-buy 100%”
“Whether you’re new to vaping cannabis or well experienced, Foray’s Blackberry Cream is sure to satisfy. Blackberry Cream has fresh, leafy green notes, followed by crisp citrus, and is influenced by the Blackberry Cream strain. The finish is slightly dry and woody with a smooth vanilla sweetness. This premium distillate is in a no-leak cartridge and is attached to a rechargeable battery.”
“This is my favourite distillate cart by far. Had a nice strawberry with almost a minty taste at the end. I also love this hardware. Had a good feel and already dropped it twice and holds up so it’s tested lol. Nice headband high, lasted me like 45mis after 3 small hits. Would recommend!”
“With Myrcene and Caryophyllene as the dominant terpenes in this energetic Sativa, Strawberry Ice provides an uplifting, sweet berry flavour.”
“This was a solid cart. I wasn’t the biggest fan but I can see the appeal and the potency is definitely there…Quality: 10/10: this cartridge wasn’t lacking in quality IMO. While I didn’t enjoy the flavour, it was definitely accurate and the vapour isn’t too harsh on the throat.”
“Watermelon Z was curated to deliver a fruity flavour similar to pink lemonade and bubble gum. Housed in high-end glass, ceramic, and stainless steel hardware to prevent leakage; a custom soft-touch mouthpiece which delivers better airflow and added comfort.”
“I let a few people try it and they said it was either, strawberry kiwi, the red fun dip, Kool-aid. All and all it’s a decent cart for distillate and it got me ripped for having a high tolerance. 7 grams a day. This cart kicked my arse and put me to sleep after a few hits. Pretty good for distillate.”
“General Admission vapes are all about flavour. Big. Bold. High-quality THC distillate infused with botanical terpenes that complement the natural aromas of the strain selection. Tiger’s Blood Distillate vapes are the tropical summertime favourite you’ve been searching for. It’s bursting with aromatic watermelon flavours.”
“This cart is amazing! This smokes just like the live rosin jam they released. If you ever dabbed that this is practically identical just in a nice little vape. Another thing is when I pulled this vape out I could legit feel the extra weight on this cart. Whatever it’s made of is amazing, the best functioning cart I’ve used yet. No clogs not even slightly, same consistent pull every time after a few days. Amazing flavor and amazing high…”
“We’ve put our Wedding Pie strain through a solventless extraction process to produce a beautifully aromatic Live Rosin, with a spicy cracked pepper profile.”
“The flavour is really nice, very pleasant being sweet and kushy, with a little tang, a little gas, and being 1.2g is a huge plus at its price point…However, I don’t love the high. For a cartridge that says it has linalool and limonene I was surprised at how jumpy it made me feel. I’m energized, but I’m also irritable and anxious, which isn’t what I expected at all. I think pairing this with a glass of wine could create a lovely, more subdued effect, but for now, I’ll be hesitant with using this cartridge on its own.”
“This extraterrestrial monster blasts you with gas, earthy and lime flavours on the inhale, and leaves you with fruity pine on the exhale.”
“Very tasty, rebranded verse killer kush. One of my favourite terp profiles. Definitely recommend.”
“True-to-strain Killer Kush flavour; cool, zesty lemon aromas with hints of pine and cedar.”
“General Admissions carts have been one brand I always recommend, their product is always pretty true to its flavour and the Honeydew was very on point with that. If you like Honeydew and wanting a 510, highly recommend this to anyone!”
“Made for the masses, General Admission vapes are all about flavour…We create quality THC distillate infused with botanical terpenes that complement the natural aromas of our strain selection. Bright, crisp and juicy; take a dive into our Honeydew Boba. Creamy and sweet notes of fruit and tapioca with a hint of spice, Honeydew offers a high THC potency with a slice of melon.”
Forbidden fruit is my current fav cart. Great high and the mouthpiece is amazing! The hole is big enough for the cart to never clog !! Deff buying again!
“Go big or go home. Back Forty’s Forbidden Fruit 1.2g vape cart brings more of the berry taste that you’ve come to know and love from one of Canada’s best-selling vapes! With berry overtones, earthy-tasting notes, and a citrus finish, the main terpenes are limonene and myrcene. This potent vape cartridge contains no fillers, and with just two ingredients, is perfect for all of your Back Forty adventures.”
