Which on is better - THC Carts or THC Disposables?

Are THC disposables better or cartridges (carts)? This is a tricky question because we carry both. However, we broke down everything you’ll need to know about them and helped answer the question – which one is better?

What is a THC Cart?

What is a THC Cartridge?

 A cartridge, or cart, is a small vial filled with blended THC distillate + Tepenes. There are two ends; the bottom is a threaded piece that typically screws into a separate battery device. 

For THC cartridges, thankfully, most cartridges, and all of ours, are 510 threaded, meaning they will fit most batteries on the market; you can customize, mix, and match with whatever battery you like. The battery includes a button and a heating function that warms up the distillate to the perfect temperature for smooth and easy inhalation.

What is a THC Disposable?

A disposable vape pen combines a battery and THC distillate in one unit and is meant to be used until empty and thrown away. Much like a cart and battery, these devices are made up of the same blended distillate and have a built-in battery with a heating function.

This all-in-one, easy-to-use way of vaping elevates you because it’s very convenient. Disposables can also come in a few varieties; some are draw-activated, meaning all you must do is put it on the mouthpiece and inhale to activate the heating element. 

Much like how the cart and battery combinations work, some are activated using a push button or have a preheat function making it easier to heat the distillate.

When it comes to getting lit, vape cartridges and disposables are two of the most convenient and user-friendly ways to consume THC. While they might have unique styles and quirks, the basic process for hitting them is the same. 

How Are THC Carts and Disposables the Same?

Both carts and disposables use the same stuff to get you high, blended THC distillate. And they both work by heating the distillate to create sweet, sweet vapor for you to inhale. 

They’re both easily dosable, so you can adjust your buzz to suit your mood. And because they’re both vaporizing the same stuff, you’re going to get a similar hit and airflow whether you’re using a cart or a disposable.

How Are THC Carts and Disposables Different?

Carts require a separate battery device, allowing for a more personalized experience with many battery options. Conversely, disposables are ready-to-use right out of the box and are a more compact option. 

Both are relatively universal, as most batteries work with most cartridges, but there is a need to find additional hardware. Disposables, however, are premade with the correct wattage for the perfect hit every time.

Cartridges are an excellent option for those who like to mix and match their strains; changing carts on a battery is quick and easy, so you can swap them out in seconds. 

The maximum size for cartridges is 2G, so though you get a bit less than you may be able to get with a disposable, the customizable experience is the real draw.

Carts are also more eco-friendly than other options while still being relatively discreet. The additional hardware is customizable, and the compact design allows easy dosage control. 

Quality batteries can last through many carts, and customizing the hardware experience provides a personal touch. Carts also give a few more options regarding flavor profiles and flavors; if you like to switch up your strains regularly, carts may be the way to go.

On the other hand, THC disposables are the most straightforward way to consume THC, offering convenience and discretion. They require no assembly and are preset with the correct wattage for the distillate.Β 

Once the device is empty, it can be discarded, making it perfect for on-the-go consumption. Recently, the trend with disposables is to go bigger and better.Β 

Adios Blend

We just launched our largest disposable yet at a whopping 4.5G with 5 flavors of our Adios Blend. Disposables can hold much more distillate than carts, meaning you will spend less time shopping for vapes and more time vaping the vapes. 

Technology is constantly improving, and disposable devices have come a long way, so if you are looking for that perfect all-in-one experience, disposables are the way to go.

Blinkers on Both

And let’s not forget about the “blinker challenge”! Both carts and disposables often have indicator lights and limits to the length of a pull, shown by a blinking light, hence the term blinker. 

The ‘challenge’ is to take the largest hit possible using one of these devices. So, whether you prefer the customizable options of carts or the convenience of disposables, both devices offer a fun and easy way to get high.
