Today we’re diving into what makes the Honey Vape cartridge special—since there’s not much info already out there on it.
Though vaporizer products like the G Pen or MicroG Pen (which require loading loose concentrates into an empty tank) remain very popular with cannabis users, any medical marijuana patient who’s recently visited their dispensary will notice the increase in popularity of pre-filled cartridges that can be attached to vaporizer batteries (often called “mods”) of the user’s choice.
While these pre-filled vape cartridges are a bit more expensive than the product contained within would be on its own, they offer a level of convenience and reliability, making them a great alternative.
I personally prefer pre-loaded cartridges after having numerous, unfortunate run-ins with delicate vape pen coils, even while I’d been diligent in attempting to protect them. Pre-loaded cartridges circumvent this issue (for the most part) and usually contain high quality concentrates too.
One vape-cartridge brand that’s been popping up in dispensaries around California is Honey Vape. Strangely, information about the company itself is scarce, despite their presence in many collectives, and information on an actual Honey Vape cartridge is even more rare. I’ve seen them stocked in at least two different local dispensaries, and a Nugg search shows me there are three dispensaries in my area that will let me get Honey Vape cartridges delivered.
What has been clearly stated by the company is that Honey Vape cartridges are high in THC and free of unnatural solvents. They advertise a THC content of 75%+ and Cannabis Reports has logged the THC content of a few of their products all within that ballpark.
And being solventless means that no butane was used in its making. While BHO (butane hash oil) is generally the more popular concentrate, there’s a small but present danger of butane not being properly purged, which can be harmful if consumed. Some users simply prefer an absence of unnatural chemicals in their smoke or vapor, even if it’s been made properly and all the solvent has been purged.
For those consumers, as well as anyone looking for a high-quality vape cartridge, Honey Vape sells a very good product considering you’re willing to make it work…
The biggest selling point of any Honey Vape cartridge is its potency. Vape pens can scarcely, if ever, deliver the same intense high as ground herb smoked through a high quality water pipe, so potency here is relative. However, for oil intended to be vaporized, Honey Vape oil cartridges are easily on the more potent end of the spectrum. Plus, they’re solventless so the taste is a little cleaner too.
Little stands out about the product beyond these points, because for a pre-loaded vape cartridge to do its job successfully, it has to be simple and effective. Customers opting to purchase pre-filled cartridges likely care more about the convenience or portability more than potency, so in these regards, a Honey Vape cartridges should fit the bill.
However, first-time users of these cartridges may find that they’re having difficulty inhaling a significant amount of vapor. One look at the cartridge will give you an idea why. Rather than being flowing liquid THC, the oil inside is more akin to a solid wax. No amount of movement will make it budge the least bit.
Because of this thick consistency, it’s recommended that users place the cartridge itself in near-boiling water for a minute or so before using it. After being preheated, the heat from the battery will have a greater effect on the wax.
Unfortunately, this is a necessary step; without it the product’s high potency will be a moot point. Anyone who’s thinking of making the switch to pre-loaded cartridges for convenience’s sake may want to look elsewhere if it’s too big of a deterrent.
Because of its high potency, a Honey Vape cartridge has few rivals in terms of the “high” produced, given that they’re pre-heated beforehand.
“I love these carts…A few seconds with the blow dryer or car heater always does the trick for me. Do not attempt with a skinny vape pen like a bhang stick. You want a battery with adjustable voltage and hit this mf at about 3.7 V.” —Christa
“Absolutely LOVE the Honey Vape cartridge! The taste is phenomenal and I feel like I actually get the full value, since you can hit it with a lighter to melt any remaining oil so it’s vape-able (unlike the plastic cartridges). Potency is incredible, as well!” —Jesse
“Run it under hot water first In the plastic container, till it becomes more liquid and it’s amazing. Best I’ve had by far. High lasts forever lasts at least 4 hours. A baby hit is enough for any smoker.” —Johnny
Whether or not you should purchase a Honey Vape cartridge depends on whether pre-heating them is an obstacle or not.
If you’re going to be primarily using your vaporizer on-the-go, or would simply like your vaporizing experience to be as simple as pressing a button and inhaling, this isn’t the product for you. What other cartridges may lack in potency, they’ll likely make up for by requiring less maintenance.
However, if you prefer a less intense high and a cleaner taste from properly vaporizing concentrates, and are mostly going to be using your vaporizer at home with access to hot water (or a blow dryer), then this is the vaporizer cartridge for you. It’s available in many dispensaries and will work quicker and more effectively than most others.
The main caveat is that the company has next to zero info online about their brand or products, but that’s what this post is for and that’s why Nugg lets you search for products in-stock at dispensaries near you.
