A weed pen cartridge is a small, portable device that holds pre-filled cannabis extracts and can be attached to a battery for vaping. They’re very popular with new cannabis consumers as they are easy to use, more discrete and usually less pungent than smoking or consuming flower. Cartridges can be filled with a wide range of THC, CBD and other concentrates and extracts including distillates, live resin and rosin and butane hash oil (BHO).
Using a vape pen is simple. Just charge your battery, attach the cartridge and press the button to inhale. You can choose from a single temperature setting or multiple, depending on your preferred experience and the type of cannabis you’re vaporizing.

The cartridges themselves come in a variety of sizes, with the most popular being 1ml or 0.5ml. The 0.5ml size is often referred to as a “point-five gram cart,” and typically costs around the same price as high quality 1g carts.
When choosing a cartridge, be sure to look for one that states which ingredients it contains. Consumers are becoming increasingly informed about the ingredients of the products they consume and will be looking for information like whether or not a cart is organic, chemical free, vegan or if it uses any artificial flavors or terpenes not derived from cannabis.
In addition to the ingredient list, be sure to check what extraction method a cartridge utilizes. Some cartridges use a combination of CO2 and ethanol to isolate the cannabinoids from the plant material, while others employ only a CO2-based process. This will influence the terpene profile of the final product and can significantly alter how a user experiences the effects.
