How to Choose the Best Vape Carts for Your Distillate

CCELL Marketing 2023-06-12

The MJ industry in the United States is experiencing remarkable positive growth. In 2022, the U.S. MJ market was valued at $13.2 billion and is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 14.2% from 2023 to 2030 to reach $40.1 billion by 2030. This growth is driven by an increasing number of states that have legalized either medical or recreational sales (or both), leading to a rapid market expansion. This high level of growth has attracted many new businesses to the industry, including those hoping to fill vape products like cartridges. 

Distillate vape cartridges have become incredibly popular among MJ enthusiasts due to their ease of use when compared to other methods. To operate, vape carts are simply connected to a compatible vape battery like the M3, and since they are pre-filled, there is no need to mess with sticky concentrates to load your vape. Additionally, their compact and portable design enables discreet storage in pockets or purses, making them accessible for enjoyment anywhere and anytime. 

Starting or running a vape business requires careful consideration when selecting the right hardware supplier. It is crucial to choose a supplier that offers high-quality devices and cartridges, as well as safe and reliable components. Factors to consider include product variety, customization options, manufacturing standards, and compliance with regulatory requirements. Additionally, assessing the supplier's reputation, customer reviews, and track record in the industry can help ensure you find a successful partnership.

How Large is the US Vape Market?

According to industry analysts, vaporizers accounted for 29% of legal market sales in the U.S. in 2020. This percentage is expected to increase in the coming years as vapes become more popular among consumers.

There are several reasons why vaporizers are becoming more popular among consumers. First, vapes are considered a healthier way to consume MJ, as they do not produce smoke and release far fewer harmful byproducts. Second, the oil in vape cartridges is more potent than flower, so consumers can reach their desired effects faster and by vaping less. Finally, vaporizers are more portable and discreet than other methods of consuming the plant.

The MJ vape industry has evolved significantly and is poised for a promising future. Initially, simple vape pens dominated the market. As the industry matured, more advanced and sophisticated devices emerged. This evolution has led to improvements in technology, design, and functionality, offering consumers a wide range of vape options. As the industry expands, vaporizers will likely continue to gain popularity, especially among new users.

With increased legalization and consumer acceptance, the future of the MJ vape industry is expected to witness further advancements, such as improved safety features, precise dosage control, better performance, and enhanced flavor profiles. Additionally, the integration of smart technology and the development of innovative vaping methods could shape the industry's future, providing consumers with personalized experiences and fostering continued growth and innovation.

What are Vape Cartridges?

Vape cartridges are portable containers filled with a concentrate like distillate. To transform the concentrate into vapor, vape carts work in conjunction with a vape battery to provide power to the heating mechanism. When activated by the user, the vape pen applies controlled heat to the cartridge, causing the oil to turn into an inhalable vapor. 

If you want to sell your filled vape cartridges, it is critical to source quality components, including the empty vape cartridges into which you will put your oil. That said, there is a wide variance in the hardware available on the market. Here’s what to look for when shopping for bulk cartridges.

Materials: The materials used in constructing a vape cart should be high quality. This includes the materials used in the mouthpiece, coil, and chamber. Low-quality vape carts can lead to leaks, malfunctions, and even health risks. 

What to look for in an empty distillate cartridge:

  • Choose ceramic when it comes to the core

  • Look for carts that are customizable to your oil

  • Look for carts that are environmentally sustainable

  • Purchase carts that use medical-grade materials in their components

Design: The design of a vape cartridge should be user-friendly and straightforward to operate. It must be durable and withstand everyday use since many consumers rely on their vapes when on the go. Vape design is also essential to ensure consistent heating of the oil for full, flavorful hits. Shopping around for a producer that offers different types of carts makes it easier to find the one that is perfect for your products.

Production: Vapes should be produced in a clean, safe, ISO-certified plant using current good manufacturing practices (cGMP). The vapes should be tested for quality and safety before they are sold to minimize potential issues. The dangers of sourcing poor-quality vapes can harm your reputation and hinder your growth. Customers who regularly experience faulty vapes will look for a more reliable brand. On the bright side, CCELL’s cartridge defect rate is .01%, which is the lowest in the industry!

What to Look for in a Vape Hardware Provider

There are plenty of choices when it comes to vape hardware suppliers, making it a challenge to know which company you should partner with. Here are a few guidelines to consider when shopping for your new wholesale vape supplier. 

Industry Experience

There is no replacement for industry experience and the knowledge that comes with it. Look for a supplier with a proven track record within the vape industry. Experience plays a vital role as it signifies a manufacturer's understanding of the complexities of producing high-quality vape carts. Look for a manufacturer with a proven track record, preferably one with several years of experience crafting top-quality vape cartridges. Their expertise will ensure that the products you receive meet your expectations and adhere to industry standards. For example, CCELL has been supplying the industry’s highest quality hardware since 2016.

Reliable Supply Chain

Recent years have shown how unstable the global distribution network can become when strained. A manufacturer should have a robust network of suppliers to ensure a consistent and steady flow of materials. This ensures you avoid delays or shortages that could disrupt your operations. A strong supply chain indicates a well-established manufacturer and demonstrates a commitment to meeting customer demands and maintaining product availability.

Consumer Safety

Consumer safety should be a top priority when choosing a vape cartridge manufacturer. Look for a manufacturer that prioritizes quality control and implements stringent testing protocols. They should adhere to industry regulations and standards to ensure their cartridges are safe for use. This includes using high-quality materials, employing proper manufacturing processes, and conducting thorough product testing. Choosing a manufacturer with a strong focus on consumer safety will give you peace of mind and help you build trust with your customers.

Environmental Conservation

Use a manufacturer that demonstrates sustainable practices throughout their production processes. This can include using eco-friendly materials, implementing energy-efficient measures, and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. There is a high potential for waste in the vape industry. This is especially true with pre-filled vape cartridges. By choosing an environmentally conscious manufacturer, you align your business with principles of sustainability and contribute to the overall well-being of the planet.
