A First-Timer's Guide To Buying Marijuana Vape Cartridges

Vaping is an often-preferred way to use medical marijuana. It is better for your lungs than smoking, and it allows you to enjoy an array of appealing flavors as you use your cannabis. The first time you buy vape cartridges, though, can be a little unfamiliar. Here are some tips to help you.

Buy from a dispensary.

Make sure you buy your vape cartridges from a medical marijuana dispensary. You do not want to buy vape cartridges under the table or from a fly-by-night vendor, as these could contain additives or chemicals that are not healthy for you to inhale. Almost all dispensaries carry vape cartridges, so you should have an easy time finding them.

Pay attention to the strain.

Vape cartridges can be made with many different strains of marijuana. Different strains are known for different effects. So, go into the dispensary with a good idea of what you want to get out of your vape cartridges. Are you looking for relaxation? Pain relief? Reduced anxiety? If you let the budtender know what your goals are, they can recommend the strains that are best for you.

Look at THC concentration.

Before you buy a vape cartridge, check the concentration of THC it contains. Some cartridges are only 10% THC. Others are closer to 20% or 30% THC. It is often worth it to buy a higher-THC cartridge because you can just take fewer hits and it will last longer. However, if you are really sensitive to THC, you will probably want a lower-THC cartridge so that you don't risk overdoing it with just one puff.

Choose a cartridge with a glass tank.

Some vape cartridges are made with plastic tanks, but if possible, you really want to choose one with a glass tank. The glass is more heat-stable, so you don't have to worry about it breaking down and releasing toxins into your lungs, as may sometimes happen with plastic tanks.

Buy a selection of cartridges.

Instead of buying three or four of the same cartridge, buy a small selection of different cartridges this time around. This way, you can vape them all and pick a favorite to keep buying time after time. You don't always know which cartridge you'll prefer until you try a few.

The tips above should help guide you as you purchase vape cartridges for the first time. Don't be afraid to ask the budtender for advice; their job is to give it.
