    I know people on here mention cartridges from time to time but I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where people could mention ones that they have tried and liked or not liked and talk about the reasons why. I'm not that experienced with them, but here is my rundown so far:

    Using KP battery on purple setting for all of these.

    Brand/Flavor/Thoughts:

    ROVE - Dream - Excellent. Flavor was great and it seemed to last me a really long time. Effects were strong. Would purchase again.

    710 King pens - King Louis XIII - Excellent. Once again lasted forever and tasted great. Glass cartridge.

    Bloom - Blue Dream - Excellent, but a plastic cartridge instead of glass or quartz, so the taste wasn't the best. Especially towards the end. It did last quite a while though.

    THClear - Fruity Pebbles - Above average. Taste wise, and effects wise, excellent. However, I am not using it any more than previous cartridges and it seems to be using up quite fast. Not sure if it is leaking or what. Also, plastic.

    Until there is a standard glass/ceramic/quartz/steel, wick-free, plastic free, low temp cartridge, and long shelf life for pre-decarbed (THC) oils I'm sticking with sealed bottom, low temp, coil-free pens and stable, long-shelf-life THCa concentrates.

    I know a few firms out west are very close to a long shelf life designer distillate cartridge that meets all the aforementioned specs.

    Brass knuckles are really good and Americana cartridges are good too. Flavor is really good on both. But brass knuckles taste a little better and last just a little bit more. I want to try the 710 king pens I heard they are the best.

    I also use brass knuckles. I like them the best. Great flavor, strong effect and they last a good while. Whenever I let someone take a hit, they always comment about the flavor and how good it taste. The cartridges are quartz. I used to use the honey vape ones but they were a pain sometimes because you have to carry a lighter to warm it up almost every time.
    They have some new ones from Flight Farm at my local shop. I am curious to try.

    I have found the best cartridge to be the ones by Moxie. I had a Blueberry strain and it was an incredible taste. They sold out fast as well.

    I've tried Kurvana's Girl Scout Cookies and enjoyed it.
    For safety concerns (real or perceived),I try to stay away from carts when I can. The Kurvana website mentions there are no Glycols/PG/PEG or Additives, but the cart itself has plastic, a wick, etc. Also have the pax era with some Bloom pods (they too claim no additives).

    They cart/pod convenience is great, especially when sharing with people.

    Well, they are all pretty much different offerings state by state, yeah?

    I was in WA state last week and went with a friend to a dispensary looking for, among others, a quality cartridge.

    Table stakes was no PG/VG/PEG and any terps used to thin would have to be cannabis derived.

    The tender showed me her collection and the Nectar stood out heads and shoulders above the cheaper plastic carts with cotton wicks.

    This is a link: https://nectar-craft.myshopify.com/

    Here is an excerpt:

    Founded by a small team of dedicated entrepreneurs in Washington State with combined decades of experience in chemistry, horticulture and technology, Nectar Craft creates the cleanest, safest, and highest quality enriched cannabis extracts available today. Our oil is produced for the Washington i502 recreational market by Circanna in the SODO district of downtown Seattle and is available from the best retailers in the state.

    Nectar designs its offerings for the discerning cannabis consumer. You won’t find any glycol, glycerin, chemical additives or artificial flavors here; our small batch, whole plant, strain specific oils preserve the naturally occurring terpenes so you can taste and experience the plant. Since we use locally sourced cannabis grown with organic methods and CO2 to extract our oils, there are zero residual contaminants in our products.

    Nectar cartridges are made from stainless steel and Pyrex glass for unsurpassed durability, reliability and an exceptional user experience. No plastics or potentially toxic glues here to contaminate your oil. These can be refilled up to ten times to prevent waste.
    — Nectar

    I got Granddaddy Purp and used it through out my trip and liked it a lot.

    Now, a 1 g cart was list price of $70 but if you have a med card its 20% off and priced at $64.

    You are right that overall straight high quality wax on a good pen is better. Finally got to try THCa last week. Amazing stuff, so strong!

    I really have not found a pre-fill that I like yet but that very well could be just what we have available here. FlavRx is everywhere but did not like the taste on that.

    So Brass knuckles cartridges are Quartz ? Are they wickless ? Plastic free ? How about 710 King ? Quartz/steel free of plastic ?
  • miklo

    it says "superior quartz cartridge" on the package. I dont know about the wick. Im gonna try and open up and old one, lets take a look.
  • miklo

    I tried one once and I remember it being pretty good but the cartridge opened up in my pocket and spilled out. I never tried them again.

    The 710 King was definitely glass and metal, no wick, but not sure if it is quartz and steel.

    Glad to see people posting reviews though, this way we can all help each other avoid lower quality and potentially hazardous brands. I want to try a brass knuckles one next, they have them everywhere in LA. Also, Alpine looks interesting.
  • AVENTUS

    Yeah seriously, a collective effort of honest safety-minded real world feedback, to bankrupt the crappy plastic & wick cartridge firms. The Connoisseur oil firms already know better than to let their wonderful oils be mixed with dilutant and placed it plastic to be burned with coils/wicks.

    So now if we can contribute to the overall consumer awareness we will all have better selection !

    @JMM you won't regret getting a Brass Knuckles. My favorite flavor is the Abracadaora. Taste just like lime. Grape Ape is also good I use that one to put me to sleep.
  • DabConnection

    Are they adding flavor to these at Brass Knuckles or are these the natural flavors coming from the strain?

    I believe that the Nectar cart I referenced above has a quartz or ceramic wick. Definitely NOT cotton or the like.

    Awesome I will be on the lookout for those! Thanks for the recommendation.

    Nice! I haven't seen those in California yet, but will be on the lookout for those as well.

    Yeah, WA state only. To expand they need to line up an oil processor and distributor in other states as loaded carts cannot cross state lines. Same with the Pax Era....only CA and CO right now.

    Here in CA, my favorites are Kurvana, Spliffin and Ganja gold live resin.

    Yeah 710 KP's are nice, I like those. Brass knuckles are even better, but I would recommend staying away from the fruity flavors, especially the strawberry cough, that ones just nasty. I like the SFV OG, great flavor, and those cartridges rip.

    I just picked up some of the Alpine live resin, haven't tried it yet though, waiting on my tank to get here. I'm looking over the lab test and I'm surprised to not see any thcA. Also a shame they're not testing for solvents and pesticides.
  • voyciz

    These are awesome: http://oceanvape.com/
    Now they say they are tested by SC but I can't find their results anywhere online.
  • voyciz

    The brass knuckles cartridges DO use a wick, in fact a bigger wick than most, but they don't use plastic. The wick must be higher quality, because those things don't burn like other cheap cartridges I've seen.

    I'll let you know about KP after I crack it open...matter of fact, I will make a video.

    yeah my homie Mike bought one after reading on Reddit and wanting to outdo me on the scientifically healthy/efficiency tip.

    It's huge, about 20x the size of the cartridges talked about in this thread, requires a huge battery, and requires being stored sideways after taking cool down air hits vertically.

    It's a very good device for home use, but totally unusable in public unless paired with a sidecar mod, and even then would require cool down hits and sideways storage to not clog.

    Company is committed to safe materials tho and I appreciate that immensely, as they have been a force to push some of the more mainstream pen companies to catch up with the safe materials / low temps / no coils evolution of concentrate devices.
  • voyciz

    Ok so what is a sidecar mod now? Man so many things to learn... I've always been a blunt smoker, and I'm a little late to start pick up vaping.

    Sounds like that setup may be too expensive for me, although I would love to have something that is of such great quality - I mean those coils are sexy.
