THC & CBD pre-filled oil cartridges became super-popular in the recent year, and are currently the most popular way to vape Cannabis for medical or recreational purposes.
Vaping THC oil doesn’t require a high powered vaporizer, making these Vape Pens small, light, relatively cheap, and very discreet. There is no learning curve, usually nothing to fill (pre-filled 510 cartridges are available in dispensaries), and the results are very consistent. You can vape as much or as little at a time, and there is a huge variety of flavored oils with varying amounts of THC and CBD.
Most Oil vaporizers on this list work with pre-filled 510 cartridges, and some with refillable cartridges. 510 is the standard thread that connects the cartridge to the vape pen. Other ways to vape weed include dry herb vaporizers or vape pens for wax & dab.

Oil Vaporizers FAQ ↓
An oil vaporizer or vape pen is a small battery with an interface (usually a single button), and a connector that will allow screwing in cartridges or tanks (with 510 thread).
Once loaded with a cartridge, you can hit the button and start inhaling. The tank has a little heating coil that will vape your THC or CBD oil, available through inhalation of the vapor.
In medical and recreational cannabis dispensaries around the country. There are stories about users extracting these oils themselves- I do not recommend you doing this at home. And always know and comply with your local law and regulations.
If you are a medical cannabis patient or have access to a recreational dispensary, you can ask for “Pre-filled vape cartridges” and that should get you what you need. Usually, you may select from different flavors and THC level to match your level of experience.
510 thread refers to the standard connector of the battery to the cartridge. There are some different threads out there, but 99% of oil vaporizers use the standard 510 connectors. If you are buying from US dispensary, your cartridge should compatible.
A few key benefits of vaping oil are-
- Convenience– always ready to use with a click of a button. No mess of filling, loading cartridges, just pop one in and you are all set.
- Consistent results– unlike smoking weed, vaping with a cartridge will allow you to control your dosage and get the same high (or other benefits), every time. If you take the same number of draws, you will get the same exact amount of THC. This makes consuming THC more manageable.
- Discreetness– vaping leaves much less smell, and typically can be used without people around you noticing. Also, most of these vapes are destined to be discreet and won’t look like anything out of the ordinary to anyone.
Using a weed vaporizer does produce a scent of weed. Not so much on the user, but the vapor does smell like cannabis, more noticeable in closed spaces. With that said, it dissolves much faster than smoke would, and is unnoticeable after a short while.
Your clothes, breath, fingers will not smell at all.
