More and more people are experimenting with cannabis vape cartridges. For vape enthusiasts, using a cartridge provides a level of convenience, along with a way to control the dosage, and it makes consuming the plant more discreet than smoking a joint or pipe.
For first-time or infrequent cannabis consumers, the care and use of cartridges can be a bit confusing. And many people wonder how long a cartridge will—or should—last.
Let’s break down the basics of marijuana vaporizer cartridges to understand how long a vape cartridge may last for you.
The Body Chemistry
Your body chemistry determines how you are going to withstand the possible outcomes of THC from taking several hits of 5 mg THC. If your immunity is weak, you will likely get overwhelmed by the psychoactive side effects with at most three hits. On the contrary, a strong immunity means the white blood cells fight off or withstand the negative effects of THC.
How many mg are in a cart? How many mg is a full gram cart? How many mg is in a gram cart? How many mg is in a dab pen?
Cartridges are measured in milligrams or grams. 1 gram contains 1000 milligrams. The most common sizes for vape cartridges are 500mg (.5g) and 1000mg (1g). Disposable vapes often come in 300mg (.3g) varieties. The volume of your particular vape cart will be specified on the packaging along with cannabinoid percentage (THC, CBD and so on), terpene percentage (if present), and other details.
A Quick Marijuana Vape Pen Primer
Many people are discovering cannabis concentrates. The sales numbers for these golden-colored oils are racing ahead of that of cannabis flowers for several reasons:
Reusable marijuana vape cartridges screw into a rechargeable, lithium ion battery that powers a heating element, resulting in vaporization and not smoke. High-end reusable vaporizers can come with temperature controls and even adapters to be able to vaporize marijuana flower as well as oil.
Disposable vape pens are another widely available option. The cartridge and pen are a single unit, and you don’t recharge them when they’re empty. You simply recycle them.
Most folks who are new to vaping cannabis start out with the least expensive option, which is usually a disposable pen. Once folks appreciate the benefits and convenience of vaping, many opt to buy higher-end pens, and there are virtually no limits on the type and design of vape pens available to consumers.
