Now read on to learn all about choosing the best CBD cartridges.
What Makes These CBD Cartridges the Best?
Obviously, “best” is a relative term, else this article wouldn’t be here. So what makes these CBD cartridges the best on the market?
Before we get to the reviews, let’s take a look at the essential qualities that make a CBD cartridge truly exceptional. There are four of them, as described below.
Most CBD cartridges refer to their potency, also called strength, as a selling point. Both terms are simply a reference to their milligram count. This number is easily found on the packaging or in the online description of the item.
Typically, the least potent CBD cartridges start at 100 milligrams. On the other end of the spectrum, there are some as potent as 2000 milligrams.
Basically, a greater potency just means a larger dose per puff. And the larger the dose, the more powerful the effect.
Because of this, greater potency does not inherently mean “better.” The ideal dose varies from person to person. If you don’t know your preferred potency, it’s best to start low and then work your way up.
Price Per Milligram
While the ideal potency is relative, an ideal price per milligram is not. It’s a quantifiable measurement that tells you exactly how cheap or expensive the CBD is compared to your other options.
To calculate this value, take the dollar amount and divide it by the milligram count. The resulting number is the cost of one milligram of CBD for that product. The smaller this number is, the more CBD you’re getting for your money.
The purest CBD cartridges are derived exclusively from organic hemp with no added ingredients. And, if that’s the case, they’ll have the lab test results to prove it.
CBD manufacturers aren’t going to keep a great selling point like that to themselves. If the product is pure, you should find some credential on the label that certifies its purity.
On the other hand, if the product isn’t certified as pure, watch out. It may, like many CBD cartridges, contain questionable additives.
The most common of these is propylene glycol (PG). PG is added to enhance the flavor and feeling of each puff.
Whether this enhancement is more desirable to vape users is subject to debate. Unfortunately, so are the negative health effects of PG.
Since excessive consumption of PG is toxic, the U.S. restricts its use in food to .45 grams per pound. Because of this, it’s rare that an individual is negatively affected by it.
Flavor Vs. No Flavor
Whether or not artificial flavoring adds value to your CBD is, again, a matter of personal preference. Some vape users prefer a little boost of flavor in their CBD.
But the important thing to remember is that such added ingredients reduce the purity of the CBD. And, for most CBD users, purity is a big deal.
That is, most people use CBD because it’s so natural. They use it either as a natural remedy or as a recreational substance that’s wholesome and gentle on the body.
For such people, the addition of artificial ingredients like flavoring kind of defeats the purpose.
1. Pinnacle Hemp Ki 300-600mg CBD Pod Cartridge
First on our list is our most highly-rated (based on user reviews) cartridge, the Ki pod cartridge by Pinnacle Hemp. The Ki pod comes in 2 strength options, 300mg and 600mg.
And they’re available in two distinct flavor profiles. But, rather than artificial flavors, these flavor profiles come from 2 different terpene blends. This way, you get multiple flavor options to choose from without sacrificing purity.
Speaking of purity, the purity of these pods are excellent. And since Pinnacle discloses the lab results of all their products on their website, you can see that for yourself.
The pods are for use in the Ki Pod battery device.
2. Vape Bright Thrive 200-250mg CBD Vape Cartridge
Above all, Vape Bright strives for purity in their products. This approach shines through in the excellent flavor and quality of their Thrive cartridges.
The CBD in the Thrive Cartridges is 100% certifiably organic. It has no PG, vegetable glycerin (VG), or any other carrier oils either. Vape Bright refuses to use such ingredients in order to produce the purest, healthiest CBD products on the market.
The cartridges fit 510-threaded devices. The original Thrive cartridge contains 200mg of CBD and Thrive Beyond contains 250mg.
Powerful in its terpene-rich flavor and its pharmaceutical effects, Thrive is quite possibly the best cartridge there is. And they’ve earned countless positive reviews to prove it.
3. Funky Farms 350mg CBD Cartridge
Funky Farms 350mg CBD cartridge is one of our most popular full-spectrum CBD vaping options. And, speaking of options, its 6 available terpene blends are what make these cartridges truly unique.
These varieties don’t only determine flavor. The differing terpene content in each option is designed to produce different effects. The result is 6 very distinct vaping products for specifically-targeted uses.
For example, the Thin Mint variety enhances mood and aids in relaxation. It’s designed to combat stress-related conditions like insomnia and depression.
The terpenes in Grand Daddy Purple, another cartridge variety, have sedative properties to help you get restful sleep. Lemon Cake, helps to strengthen cognitive function. It gives you mental energy and focus to tackle mentally demanding tasks.
If you’re taking CBD for very specific reasons, you should definitely check out our Funky Farms options. Funky Farms also uses only 100% organic hemp and fits any 510 device.
4. Green Roads Free the Leaf 250mg CBD Cartridge
Free the Leaf is another full-spectrum option, meaning it provides a richly beneficial experience. For those who don’t mind, these cartridges are enhanced with a few non-hemp ingredients.
Specifically, they contain natural flavors and medium-chain triglyceride (MCT). MCT is a carrier oil that helps your body absorb the CBD and terpenes better.
This means that each milligram of the hemp derivatives will have a more potent effect than normal. In other words, the first time you use CBD with MCT, you want to take a smaller dose than you normally do.
Free the Leaf comes in standard, 510 cartridges.
5. Kanna 750-1,000mg CBD Cartridge
If you do prefer flavored CBD vaping, Kanna will likely be your favorite choice. So far, they offer five delicious flavors: strawberry, mango, mixed berry, and menthol.
Also, if you’re looking for CBD that packs a wallop, Kanna’s whopping 1000 milligram cartridges won’t disappoint. For slightly less advanced users, Kanna cartridges are also available in 750-milligram cartridges.
However, if you desire to purchase the most natural CBD cartridge possible, Kanna may not be for you. To their credit, they do use CO2 extraction to obtain high-purity CBD. But they also add PG and VG to enhance consistency.
Kanna also derives their CBD from non-organic hemp. This further reduces the purity.
In short, Kanna is an excellent choice for those who enjoy flavored, enhanced, and powerfully potent CBD vaping. Purists who prefer more natural vaping won’t be so pleased.
6. Peaked 250-1,000mg CBD Cartridge
Peaked cartridges are a comparable option to Funky Farms. They also have different flavor profiles/terpene content designed for specific uses. There are seven of these flavors to choose from and 3 potencies: 250mg, 400mg, and 1,000mg.
Flavors are fruit/dessert oriented. Targeted uses include relief from anxiety, depression, and physical pain.
Peaked also derives its CBD from organic hemp.
The biggest difference between peaked and Funky Farms cartridges is that Peaked cartridges are not universal. They intended for use only in the JUUL and OVNS vaping devices. So make sure you own the correct vaping system before purchasing Peaked cartridges.
7. Fresh Leaf 500mg CBD Cartridge
Fresh Leaf is a full-spectrum CBD cartridge option with a unique twist. In addition to hemp-derived terpenes, Fresh Leaf includes terpenes derived from food as well. The result is a selection of flavors and effects you won’t get from any other CBD vape cartridge.
On the negative side, the product contains both non-organic hemp and PG.
Fresh Leaf cartridges are made for your 510-threaded device.
8. Jolly Green Oil 250-700mg CBD Cartridge
Jolly Green Oil is another highly-favorable flavored option. It has a huge following and plenty of positive user reviews you can read for yourself on the product page.
JGO is available in seven flavors and enhanced with PG and VG. Your strength options for JGO are 250mg, 625mg, and 700mg. Its targeted uses include relaxation, boosting energy, and relieving aches and pains.
These CBD cartridges are non-organic. They are 510-threaded and made in America.
9. Cbdistillery 200mg CBD Cartridge
This organic, full-spectrum CBD option is praised by users for its great flavor profiles and pharmaceutical benefits. It contains no PG or VG for a more natural vaping experience.
Its five, mostly fruity, flavors provide a variety of effects for your various needs. Both the effects and flavors are comparable to the Ki and Funky Farms options.
And so is the price. However, while the CBDistillery cartridge is the same price as the Funky Farms, its milligram count is lower.
Depending on your preferences and needs, this may be better or worse for you. If the 350mg Funky Farms cartridge is too potent for you, you may prefer the 200mg CBDistillery ones.
The flavor options are also a matter of personal preference. You’ll have to try both to find out which you like best.
CBDistillery cartridges are 510-threaded.
10. OVNS JC01 Refillable Replacement Cartridge 3-Pack
This is the most unique cartridge on our list. First of all, these cartridges are refillable. All the rest on our list are designed to be disposable.
Second of all, it’s empty. It contains no CBD oil for vaping.
You buy the CBD vaping oil on your own and fill the cartridges yourself. Depending on the price of the oil you buy, this may be the cheaper option.
And, without question, it’s the more environmentally-friendly option. Using reusable products instead of disposable ones reduces waste.
Also, this works for nicotine and any other e-liquid, not just CBD oil. If you like to vape a variety of substances, these refillable cartridges make things quite convenient. That is, they let you use all your vaping substances with the same vaping system.
Speaking of which, these cartridge pods are not universal. They fit into the OVNS JC01 Ultra Portable Kit or the Juul Ultra Portable Pod System.
11. Pinnacle 500mg CBD Cartridge
The Pinnacle 500mg CBD cartridge is well-named. It achieves the highest quality by extracting a full spectrum of hemp ingredients from organic hemp.
Pinnacle cartridges are available in three terpene profiles, as described below.
Trainwreck is their Sativa option. This strain boasts a wide variety of benefits. It’s said to help with mood, depression, chronic pain, and even migraines.
Granddaddy Purple is the Indica option. It also relieves physical pain, as well as anxiety, insomnia, and nausea.
The hybrid option is called Blue Dream. This cartridge is usually associated with reducing stress and boosting energy.
This cartridge is universal for use in any 510-threaded vaping device.
