What Are Weed Cartridges?
A weed cartridges is a small glass tube that holds cannabis oil and has a tiny part on top that vaporizes the oil when you screw it into a compatible vaporizer battery. Cartridges can be filled with a variety of oils including distillates and live resin (rosin) but the quality of the experience you get will depend on the oil’s origin and extraction process.
There are lots of options out there for cartridges. Most have a standard 510 thread on the bottom and fit most batteries, but some are device-specific and only work with one type of pen or vaporizer. This can make things more complicated if you want to switch between carts for different vaporizers.
Choosing the right cartridge for you depends on a lot of factors including your personal preferences, cannabis consumption habits and state laws. Some states have medical marijuana laws, while others have fully legalized recreational use. For example, in Colorado and California you can buy and use THC oil cartridges without a medical card.

That’s why we recommend trying a few different types of cartridges before you decide which is best for you.
