Why Do Weed Cartridges Break?

Before we do anything else, let’s take a quick look at why weed cartridges break. The sad truth of the matter is that not all cartridges are made to the same standard. Unfortunately, broken weed cartridges are quite common. 

This is mainly because it isn’t uncommon for brands to put 95% of their efforts into making a premium distillate that’s jam-packed with terpenes, cannabinoids, and impressive flavors. It’s only the other 5% that goes into making the cartridge used to house the weed oil.

As a result, weed cartridges tend to be made out of cheap materials that break and crack easily when dropped. 

If your weed cartridge is made to a higher standard and still breaks, there’s a good chance there is a leak that’s damaged the battery. Of course, mishandling can break a weed cartridge too.

Can You Fix A Broken Weed Cartridge?

You might not like to hear it but unfortunately, there’s little you can do to fix a broken weed cartridge. More often than not fixing it is out of our hands. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t save it.

Luckily, there are 4 or 5 excellent things we can do to save a broken weed cartridge and use the oil that sits in it.

We’ll be showing you how to save a broken weed cartridge in this post, so although you will probably have to replace the broken cartridge, at least you’ll be able to use the oil it holds and still get that high you’re after.

Is It Safe To Smoke Out Of A Broken Cartridge?

If you’re considering smoking the oil using your broken weed cartridge still, we urge you to think again. Even though your cartridge might still let you smoke the oil, using a broken cartridge can be quite dangerous.

The reason for this is that a broken cartridge can contain broken glass. For obvious reasons, this isn’t something you want to put in your mouth. Aside from potentially cutting your face, hands, or mouth, this is also a choking hazard.

Instead of smoking out of a broken cartridge, you should remove the oil and throw the cartridge away. That way, you still get to use the oil and you don’t risk injuring yourself. Using a broken weed cartridge can also get very messy. 

How Do You Get The Oil Out Of Your Broken Weed Cartridge?

How To Save A Broken Weed Cartridge

So, how do we go about removing the oil from a broken weed cartridge? Let’s take a look at this now!

Removing oil from a weed cartridge isn’t actually that difficult. As long as you use caution and stay patient, you’ll easily be able to remove the oil without damaging the cartridge further, making a mess, or spilling the cannabis oil.

One thing you shouldn’t do is smash the cartridge open to get to the oil. This is dangerous, and messy, and will stop you from being able to use the oil.

Instead, you should use a syringe from a local drugstore to extract the oil from the cartridge. Most weed cartridges can be unscrewed from the top. Holding the cartridge upright, unscrew the mouthpiece of the=broken cartridge and put the tip of the syringe in the oil. 

All you have to do then is pull the oil out of the cartridge using the syringe and place it in a temporary jar or container.

How To Use The Oil From A Broken Weed Cartridge?

Now you know more about broken weed cartridges and how to extract the oil, let’s take a look at how you can use the weed oil. We have 5 different uses you can try.

1. Fill An Empty Weed Cartridge

One of the most obvious uses for a broken weed cartridge is to remove the oil from it before filling an empty weed cartridge. Now you know how to remove the oil from a broken cartridge. This will be super easy.

Simply remove the oil from the broken weed cartridge with a syringe and place the oil straight into an empty one. You could use one of your old cartridges or a brand-new one.

2. Twax A Joint

The thinner, sappy texture of oils used in a weed cartridge is ideal for twaxing joints. Twaxing a joint using the oil from a broken cartridge is actually very easy. 

To twax with the oil from your broken weed cartridge, simply roll a blunt or joint in it. Do this until the exterior of the joint or blunt is completely covered in oil. This will help you make an easy kief joint. 

The result is a powerful joint that offers a moon rocks experience without much mess. 

3. Dab It Up

One of the easiest and quickest ways to use the oil from your broken cartridge is to dab it up. Get a torch, rig, and your dab tools and get ready to use the distillate. Dabbing is essentially the manual version of vaping. 

As a result, you’ll still receive the potent effects and divine flavors you normally receive from your weed cartridge. 

4. Use It To Make Edibles

You can actually ingest the distillate found inside your weed cartridge because it doesn’t have to be decarboxylated. Therefore, you could use it to make edibles. 

You could use it in baking or simply place a few drops of the oil onto your food or in a beverage.

5. Take It Down The Hatch

The fastest way and arguably easiest way to use cannabis oil is to take it down the hatch. All you have to do to use this method is ingest the oil straight after removing it from the broken cartridge. 

For the fastest effects, place a few drops of the distillate under your tongue for a minute or two before swallowing it.
