    Whats your favorite all time favorite prefilled cartridges? Below is my list.

    1. Brass Knuckles
    2. Heavy Hitters
    3. Amber Industries
    4. Hmbldt
    5. Lucky vape cartridges
    I always wanted to try Alpine vapor, those look very good. Strength wise Brass Knuckle is the strongest this is why I choose them. They have issues with quality control. I have seen on https://dabconnection.com/reviews/brass-knuckles-vape-pen/ they tested for pesticides which isn't good but they are also tested clean on sclabs.com. I believe you can taste the difference right away because I had to return some Brass knuckle cartridges because they tasted horrible, extremely bitter. This was perhaps the pesticides? However most of the time my experience with Brass knuckles has been great.

    Heavy Hitters is amazing. They have a 2.2g cart I tried that was strong and tasty.

    Amber industires is fractionally distilled which allows for a very clean strong vape.

    Hmbldt is great. Extremely nice vape pens, strong, and accurate.

    Lucky vapes taste the best and is very strong.

    It so depends on where you live and hence what you can get. I really liked a Nectar SS and glass cart I got in WA.

    #1 Xtractology Gold Label carts: pure distillate with added terps.
    #2 Extractioneering: the Magic in their carts is HTFSE and Distillate.
    #3 Skunk Feather: single source distillate and terpenes.

    I really like the 710 Carts and Brass knuckles , found they are the strongest imo but in all honesty i prefer to purchase some strong live resin , shatter or max and mix it with terpenes to make my own carts. I use the maxvapor carts to fill them and can really tailor the strength this way. The Brass knuckles did test for pesticides so i stay away but i believe they have that all under control now.

    I'm a gadget guy, and new to Washington State is the PAX Era. I'm really in love with this device, mostly in being able to control the temp with an app on my phone. Gadget-Heaven. I'm generally in no hurry, so I have it at the lowest temp. But if your goal in lung-busting hits, turn-'er-up. The actual oil inside the proprietary "pods" is state-specific. I haven't made it through a pod yet, but I'm going to try and refill it. Just in case I can't, I stocked up.

    Highly potent. Tastes great. High quality cartridge.

    alpine, brass knuckles, heavy hitters, select, suicide girls, treebase klear, and quite a few others have tested positive for pesticides recently, in the past 2-3 months. i would avoid them.

    theres a guy out here in la that is going around and buying 3 cartridges from all the popular brands and is having them personally tested by sc labs for potency and pesticides. a lot are failing for pesticides. i dont know the guy, and he seems pretty mysterious, but im not taking any chances vaping pesticides.

    the three main companies that have passed pesticide testing are honey vape, kurvana, and rove. i personally prefer honey vape, then kurvanas ascnd carts. rove and kurvanas can get a little strong in the flavor department sometimes, like too much added terpenes. the kurvana ascnd series are VERY potent by a noticeable amount though.

    i will post the guys instagram sometime today.

    Please do! I thought Alpine was safe so that sucks. The thing is, I wonder if the shatter I'm buying is any safer. Or bud for that matter. Seems the only truly safe concentrate comes from bud you grew and squished yourself. And I don't have time that!

    My new favorite is Orchid Essentials. It's like dab rig power in a cartridge. I haven't touched my wax pen since i discovered these, this is now the only thing I take when I'm on-the-go.

    I just bought the Dabblicious Bubblegum cart. This is the first cart I ever bought. I used the lowest voltage setting and pressed the button for about 3 seconds. I choked my brains out lol. It was kinda harsh. Is it normal for the first couple hits to be kinda harsh because the atomizer is new? I didn’t take another hit because I was gone after the first one. My tolerance is really low right now. Sorry for the newb question and don’t mean to derail the thread. I also bought a Clutch Durban poison but haven’t tried it yet.

    What battery are you using Paka?
    I find the key to these pre filled is to use a box that allows you to really dial in exact low voltage. I am getting great clouds on a similar bubblegum at 2.99v 4.1w.

    For WA state pre filled cartridges, here are some of my top picks- and I really only use the prefilled cartridges or oils these days so I’ve had a lot of these prefilled carts.
    1. Mfused co2 cartridges. Their site says they use native terpenes and the cart they use is either c cell or a generic wickless cart. Either way these cartridges always hit really well for me. And the cartridges taste like straight nugs. (These are nug run produced per their site.)They’ve also got flavored distillate out which is made with trim but they also rip very well and taste pretty good. And cost a lil less than their co2 oil.
    2. Indigo pro. The cartridges hit really well and the oil seems to last me longer than other ones. I like their flavored distillate carts because of the potency, variety of flavors and I do like the magnetic attachment they use. I haven’t tried their co2 oil which normally is $5 more, mainly because I don’t know if the taste is as good as an mfused cart (which uses real cannabis terps). There is no information on their site whether or not these are nug run or trim run which makes me think they’re trim. I do love the distillate carts for the potency and flavor - and love the way they hit. Love the variety as well.
    3. Oleum. Taste is pretty nice and the cartridges hit very well. Site says they use only cannabis terps which always seems to make a huge difference in taste. Their cartridges hit pretty nicely and I always love when companies use the glass carts instead of plastic.

    Anyone try the blue river / pax pods yet?? I think they’re only in CA but I would love to try the blue river terps. Thought about buying blue river terps before for diy cartridges but I haven’t found a good technique / solution for getting oil into a cartridge that doesn’t leak. But very curious to know if anyone has tried the blue river/pax pods. Think they’re calling them sauce pods?

    I just picked up a couple of Dabblicious carts last weekend and they were not harsh at all. They are decent potency, the Banana and Blueberry Cheesecake carts I picked up were both 86% total THC+CBD.

    Maybe call the dispensary and see if they will do an exchange. Most places allow 24/48 hours if you are changing it for the same thing.

    At the moment, my Top 5 would be as follows.

    1. Los Angeles Kush/Flight Farms
    2. Tree Base Klear
    3. Heavy Hitters
    4. 710 Kingpen
    5. Alpine

    Habit, Honey Vape and Sublime (Gold) also have great product, but they just didn't make the cut.

    And for the one on everybody else's list... I haven't had the best of luck with Brass Knuckles carts. Just can't get those big rips.

    Dabblicious is really nice but they don't have much in the way of strain specific carts. I tried the Classic Kurvana carts and they were nice tasting, but I found out that they were cut with PG. They have new products out now but they're very expensive (same with HMBLT/DOSIST).

    Rove, OC Farm and Select Oil sound great but they aren't really available in my area, so I hope to try all of them soon. Also, I've seen a few new distillate companies pop up that I'm excited to try: Liphtoph, Hash Artist Farms and so many others popping up what seems like every day.

    Then there are FlavRX, VVS, THClear, LA Refinery, Eureka and others I'm probably forgetting. I can't really back any of the brands in this group.

    I am a little obsessed with these carts. lol. I'm even trying to build a directory of every vape cart company available in the US. It's on reddit, but I'd be happy to make a copy here if there's any interest.

    Edit: a word

    For sure! Glad to hear that it all worked out for you. :)

    Cross post from another thread in the Concentrates thread
    You cant trust concentrates these days

    "Let's look into the numbers on 710KP Lemonhaze cartridges I purchased. The Bifenazate numbers are over 20x the legal limits. Now the carts tested positive for Bifenthtrin, however the carts were well within the legal limits. The carts also test positive for Myclobutanil coming in at 80x the legal limit. Carts also tested positive for Tebucanazole coming in almost 3x limit, positive for Trifloxystrobin almost 22x the limit. Lastly the carts tested positive for Permethrin and is roughly 15x over the limit. Translation this stuff is rather toxic. "

    I'd stay as far away from 710 Kingpen as possible:2c:

    Not sure about LA Kush, but all of those other brands have been busted recently for selling dirty carts.

    Yeah I know about the dirty cartridges too in SoCal... I’m not in that area and it sounds like from the other posts here SoCal has some issue with people getting cheap distillate for cartridges. I wish we had a datdude in Washington state! If that’s happening in CA who knows what’s going on here. I think WA at least tests for them and the lab has to be certified by a third party.

    Yeah being in SoCal there are a TON of dirty cartridges. Most dispensaries here carry unknown brands (usually house made) that you have no idea the testings for. You have to go for the bigger known brands that have been tested to know what does and does not contain the pesticides etc.
