Shop Cannabis Disposable Vapes

Disposable vape pens are incredibly convenient. These devices are purchased as a single, all-enclosed unit that contains the battery, atomizer, and vape tank. The pen is designed for a predetermined number of uses, so you can’t save the battery and recharge it for use with other cartridges. The entire unit is made for disposable use, so when you’ve used up all of the concentrates inside or the battery dies (whichever comes first), you’ll simply throw the whole unit in the trash. Some dispensaries also have collection bins for used disposable vape pens, which are then recycled and turned into new pens instead of ending up in a landfill.

Shop Vape Cartridges

Vape cartridges are pre-filled tanks that are inserted into the battery end of a vape pen. Depending on the brand and design of vape cartridge you’re using, you may need to screw the cartridge into the battery or simply insert it into a compatible port.

Vape cartridges are brand-specific, so check the vape battery you have at home to know what type of cartridge you need before purchasing. Universal 510 threads mean that you can use that cartridge with any vape battery that has a screw-in thread. Other brands, like PAX, make their own proprietary vape battery, which can only be used with PAX brand vape cartridges.

Most vape cartridges are not refillable. They’re sold with cannabis concentrates inside - typically in half-gram and gram quantities, though some brands sell smaller quantities than that. Once the cartridge is empty, you save your battery and simply throw the empty cartridge in the trash or take it to a dispensary and ask about local collection and recycling.
