As fast as the demand has been increasing for THC vape cartridges, so has grown the manufacturing of the fake carts. People often buy these counterfeit cartridges unknowingly, as people and even companies sell them as the real thing. Vaping is a huge, still growing sector of the cannabis industry. In fact, according to Forbes, prefilled cartridges cover over 58 percent of all concentrate sales, so it’s no surprise the black market wants to get its share of the profits. However, using these fake cartridges can have serious consequences as you never know what really is inside them.

Springfield Farms carts might look tempting; after all, the packages have different Simpson characters printed on them that we all love.

THC Cartridge Busts Happen Frequently
Many parties have jumped into the vape cart business as transporting illegal goods is a fairly quick and easy way to make money than actually growing your own cannabis or producing legitimate products. However, THC cartridge busts often happen; just this April, an officer noticed a suspicious vehicle in the middle of an ongoing traffic stop in Lebanon County; after the search warrant was granted, police were able to seize $500,000 worth of THC products. Last September, police seized over 20,000 cartridges containing THC after a long operation in Ohio. Both health concerns and a constantly growing market have forced authorities to put a lot more resources into stopping illegal cartridges, and you can easily spot them yourself too.
