How do you use a Disposable Vape Cart?
While disposable all-in-one devices seem to be all the rage today with the rise of hemp/cannabis products, disposable cartridges have been around for much longer and are a tried and true method of vaping. Not only are they typically more cost effective, they also have some additional benefits we’ll cover later in this post. But first, let’s discuss the history!
The history of cartridges goes back to the roots of vaping. It was one of the first vaping devices created, and, for some years, it was overlooked in favor of more powerful devices. However, with the growth of the hemp/cannabis market, cartridges are back in the limelight. They provide the low wattage required to vaporize cannabinoids without burning them or affecting their potency. With low wattage disposable carts, THC (both Delta 8 and Delta 9) deliver a more satisfying high—arguably better than smoking because the hits are smoother and more flavorful.
If you’re new to disposable carts, here’s everything you need to know about them. Disposable cartridges are composed of four main parts:
- The 510-connection or another mechanism to attach it to a device
- The coil heats up your extract and vaporizes it.
- The tank contains the extract.
- The mouthpiece is where you take a hit.
How Do D8 Cartridges Work?
You need to attach your cartridge to a battery/mod to use it. The battery supplies power, which activates the heating mechanism and allows your device to produce vapor. It is important to attach your cartridge to a compatible device with the recommended wattage/power level. Even the best disposable vape cart in the world will malfunction if you attach it to a battery that it isn’t compatible with.
Once your cart is attached to the battery, you can start vaping. Some people recommend firing the button lightly, or, with draw-activated devices, taking a few slow hits to get things rolling before you start vaping. When you take a hit, vapor is produced as the coil vaporizes the oil-based extract in your tank. The vapor it produces travels up to your mouth as you take a draw. This vapor, which contains the terpenes/flavoring and the cannabinoids in the extract you’re vaping, is responsible for the flavor you taste and the experience you get from vaping.
Troubleshooting Your Cart
A cart is a very simple device, but things can go wrong with it. It can become clogged or sometimes it may not just work. If you ever find yourself thinking why is my disposable cart not hitting, there could be several reasons for this. It may be that your battery is dead or your tank is empty. It could also be that your device is clogged. You can unclog it by taking small puffs to clear the airway as the heat reduces the thickness of the oil that’s clogging it. You can also use a toothpick or any other small tool to clean out any residues that could be blocking the airway of your cart.
