Why Your THC-O Oil Disposable Vape Pen Cartridge Is Leaking

Why Your THC-O Oil Disposable Vape Pen Cartridge Is Leaking

THC-O vape cartridges seem to be all the rage these days, and indeed they are proving to be a breath of fresh air in the world of hemp-derived cannabinoids. THC-O is up to three times stronger than ‘regular’ THC, and users are getting sold on the wide availability of products, given that THC-O is made from hemp, not marijuana.

Vaping is proving to be the most popular form of consuming THC-O, and there are a few reputable brands that are making some very fine THC-O carts. If you opt to purchase products from a cheaper company, however, you’ll likely run into some problems – one of which is a leaking vape pen or cartridge.

Why Is My THC-O Vape Cart Leaking?

By far the most common reason for a leaking THC-O vape pen or cartridge is a broken or worn-out o-ring that seals the cart from the 510 vape device. As is the case with anything, you get what you pay for in the world of THC-O vapes. If you purchase a product from a gas station, convenience store, or even a smoke shop, there’s a decent chance you will get a cheap, poorly made cartridge. The construction materials on these products are very cheap, and many times they’ll wear out almost immediately after you start using them.

Another common culprit behind a leaking THC-O vape is an ill-fitting connection between the cartridge and the vape device. Again, this often comes down to cheap, poorly made aftermarket products that were not engineered to perfectly fit the 510-style vape you’re using – or any vape for that matter. And the bad part is, if you purchased from a smoke shop or convenience store, it is unlikely that you’ll be able to receive a refund in the event your THC-O vape starts leaking.

This is why it is so important to always purchase from a quality, reputable brand that uses good materials and engineers products to be perfectly compatible with a number of different cartridges. PureKana, which we’ve linked to above, is the perfect example of a trustworthy brand that sells quality, well-made THC-O vapes. And if you by any chance you do experience leaking or any other problems, you can rely on a quality customer service team to replace your device or give you a refund.

A Word on THC-O Vape Safety

In addition to avoiding problems such as a leaking device, another major benefit of spending a little more money on a reputable brand/product, is safety. Particularly when it comes to THC-O vape products, safety is of the utmost concern. THC-O is a new, manufactured (non-natural) cannabinoid whose safety profile is yet to really be studied in depth. The top brands usually provide detailed lab analysis on the THC-O products they sell, which is really the only way you can know or not whether the product you’re using is safe.

Purchasing from a smoke shop or even worse, a gas station or convenience store, offers no opportunity to view lab reports on the product you’re buying. Realistically, there could be anything in a THC-O vape pen or cartridge that you buy from a convenience store. Stick with top, trustworthy brands, however, and you’ll be rewarded with an exhilarating – and more importantly safe – THC-O experience.  

What Can I Expect In Terms of Effects?

Speaking of the “THC-O experience,” most users describe the effects of THC-O as being significantly more potent than THC from regular cannabis. While the chemical structure of THC-O has not been widely studied, the reason for the increase in potency is likely due to the nature of the THC bond, which provides more of an impact on cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system.

In any event, we urge caution if you’re thinking about trying a THC-O vape pen or vape cartridge. We can’t emphasize enough the importance of purchasing from a trusted brand, and in most instances, buying online is your best bet since you can view lab analysis reports right there on the product page.

And last but not least, be extra careful if you’ve never used THC before. A THC-O vape is a powerful, potent product, and they are typically best suited for people that have ample amounts of experience with THC and cannabis.
