CANNABIS VAPE CARTRIDGES CANADA – THC & WEED OIL CARTRIDGES
If you’re looking for a discreet way to consume cannabis, vaporization is the way to go. Vaping cannabis is considered to be a healthier alternative as it doesn't contain the tar and carcinogens that result from smoking cannabis.
What is a THC Cartridge?
It is a pre-filled, disposable container filled with your preferable strain of THC oil. Each cartridge includes a heating element known as an atomizer which turns the oil into vapor. It comes with a battery also known as the vape pen which allows you to power the cartridge. Most oil vape cartridges are high in THC. It contains fewer terpenes than the actual cannabis bud.
To use it, the first thing you’ll do is attach the THC cartridge to the vaporizer. Then, you’ll press the button on the vaporizer and the battery will heat the coil which will then vaporize the THC oil in the chamber. Once this is done, you’re good to go.
How does it work?
THC distillate is extracted from the cannabis plant using a liquid solvent (ethanol or pressurized CO2), then hyper- purified through a process known as winterization. This process strips the distillate of impurities and terpenes (organic compounds that give plants their flavors and aroma) . The terpenes are often added back after the THC distillate is in its super potent form.
Benefits of Vaping
Potency and Ease of Use

Plus the marijuana smell isn’t there so more discretion. They are also really easy to use.
Vape cartridges are super portable. No more worrying about baggies that can break open and spill or lids that can come off.
