How To Refill A Vape Cartridge With Cannabis Concentrate
More and more medical marijuana products are making their way to Ohio dispensary shelves. This means that dry flower is just one of many options available now, from gummies to patches, waxes and oil.
While some of these products are somewhat self-explanatory to use, others may require some assistance from a budtender or patient consultant.
In this patient resource, we take a look at one of the most common cannabis products on the market, concentrated cannabis oil, and explore how to fill, or refill, a vape cartridge with this concentrate.
What is Cannabis Concentrate?
If you’ve ever used a cart for vaping, you’ve used cannabis concentrate. THC oil is extracted from the cannabis plant, providing one of the stronger dosages of THC available. Additional compounds, like terpenes or CBD, can also be added for flavor or relaxation effects.
There are many extraction methods for concentrate, but most generally focus on providing a clean, active resin that can be vaporized when heated. These oils, when produced outside regulation, have been known to cause lung issues or death if produced improperly. Patients using oils for vaping should be aware of the source of their vape oil concentrate. Patients with lung issues, such as cancer or emphysema, may want to try other cannabis administration methods.
Availability of Ohio Medical Cannabis Oils
Cannabis concentrates are available in Ohio medical marijuana dispensaries. In fact, multiple Ohio medical cannabis cultivators now sell concentrates, including Buckeye Relief, Grow Ohio, Standard Wellness and Wellspring Fields. There are also pre-filled vape pens on the market, like Cokoh Glow.
These concentrates range in cost, but can run between $75-200, depending on dosage, amount and potency. THC oil concentrates typically come in a small syringe containing 1.0m of oil. Disposable vape pens cost between $50-75, but contain far less cannabis oil (usually half the amount).
How to Refill A Cart With Concentrate
Filling or refilling a vape cart can be a complicated process, so we thought we’d break it down with this handy guide. In order to fill (or refill) a vape cart with an Ohio medical cannabis concentrate, you will need the following items:
- 1 Concentrate Vaporizer
- 1 Empty Concentrate Cart (sometimes called a tank)
- 1 Syringe of Ohio Cannabis Concentrate
- 1 Pair of Steady Hands (either the patient or a caretaker)
- 20-30 minutes of free time
Steps for Filling A Cart With Concentrate
Remove the protective cover on the syringe for the Ohio medical cannabis concentrate.
Unscrew the mouthpiece on your vape cart.
Slowly plunge the syringe, dispersing the oil into the cart’s chamber. Remember to take your time. This process could take as long as 20 minutes.
Gently tamp the cart every few minutes to allow the vape oil to slide down into the tank.
After filling, stand your cart upright and allow gravity to do its work.
Return the mouthpiece and secure the cart into your vaporizer. Enjoy!
Filling your vape cart with cannabis oil can be tough, but it just takes time and practice. As long as you have a pair of steady hands, and a little bit of free time, you can enjoy Ohio medical cannabis oil from the comfort of your own home. These syringes are more economical than disposable vape pens, slightly better for the environment, and contain stronger potency THC. If you haven’t yet tried them, this may be the time, now that you have this handy refilling guide.

The initial fruity bursts of this strain are perfectly complemented by the floral accents provided by the Myrcene terpene. Caryophyllene adds in a refreshing clove-like aroma that brings forward the citrus notes.
