Here is some information on properly caring for your distillate pens and making them last longer.
We want you to get the most from your investment, so read along with our quick guide on these vital pieces of equipment, including a special focus on how to store vape cartridges!
Remembering that vape cartridges contain an all-natural product—in this case, cannabis extracted into oil—you’ll want to use the same precautions you would with any natural and perishable product.
That means a few things:
Quick Start: What is it?
As you might guess, these devices deliver cannabis by vaporizing it. In this process, it isn’t actually burned. Instead, a disposable or rechargeable vape pen heats a potent cannabis extract to the precise temperature at which its oils are released as a fine mist.
If you keep your vape cartridges cool and in the dark, they should maintain their potency for about six months to a year.
How to store your vape cartridge
- Avoid direct sunlight. Sunlight will degrade the THC content of cannabis. And believe us when we say no one wants that to happen! Look for another dark place for your cartridges.
- STORE UPRIGHT !!!!
- Avoid heat. Like cannabis flower, vape cartridges are happiest around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, which in most places is roughly “room temperature.” When it’s exposed to high heat, the cannabis oil in cartridges may darken or otherwise discolour and also impart a slightly off flavour (though the cannabis is still safe to use).
- In extreme cases, heat can also cause cartridges to leak.
- Don’t fear the cold but don’t go storing them in the freezer. Why? The extreme cold can cause moisture inside the cartridge to condense into water, which might cause functionality issues down the road.
