Distillate Cartridges

Distillate cartridges capture the full essence of the marijuana plant in a compact cartridge that is attached to a vaporizing device. The heating unit simulates smoke by creating a dense aerosol with minimal odor. All vape products are rigorously tested by a third party for safety assurance.

DURATION

1-3 hours

How to consume:

Heat marijuana distillate to a temperature that turns active ingredients into vapor using a threaded battery, then inhale vapor through the mouthpiece.

Disclaimer:

Individual onset, duration, and effects may vary.

How it works within the body:

Similar to smoking flower, cannabinoids enter through the lungs and pass into the bloodstream.

Pens and cartridges must be compatible with one another; not all pens can be fitted into specific cartridges. Pens and cartridges should be compatible with Pure Dakota Health medical marijuana products.

COMMON QUESTIONS

What is a Distillate? 

Distillates are a type of marijuana extract that have been purified to concentrate Cannabinoids such as THC. Distillates are a great introduction to inhalation due to their overall ease of use and accessibility. Marijuana distillate is very thick and viscous at room temperature and begins to liquefy as the temperature increases. Once high enough temperature, the distillate will vaporize for inhalation. 

 

Why is my Distillate Cartridge not producing vapor?

On occasion, the atomizer that heats and vaporizes the distillate may require replenishment from the oil in the surrounding tank. The atomizer naturally pulls in the oil from the tank; however, the distillate may cool quickly and thicken, reducing flow to the atomizer. Replenishing the atomizer with oil is known as priming. Priming your distillate cartridge liquifies the distillate, allowing for the oil to flow readily into the atomizer. To prime your cartridge, apply gentle indirect heat around the tank. This will allow the distillate to liquefy and enter the atomizer to be vaporized.


For a quick remedy, simply return the cartridge to the dram included and ensure the cartridge is safely sealed inside. Once sealed inside, place the dram into a container with hot tap water to heat up the distillate inside the cartridge – DO NOT submerge the Distillate Cartridge itself in water. After removing the cartridge from the dram hold it vertically to allow flow into the atomizer.

Why does my Distillate Cartridge have air bubbles in or around the tank?

Distillate is intended to travel from the cartridge’s tank into the atomizer via the suction created from inhaling through the mouthpiece. Due to the various consistencies of the oil inside the cartridge at different temperatures, air bubbles or occasionally larger air pockets may form inside the cartridge.

While the distillate is warm and fluid, air moving from the bottom of the cartridge pulls oil and air from the tank into the atomizer through the wicking holes. Once into the atomizer, the heat vaporizes the distillate creating vapor. The vapor then travels up through the chassis and out of the mouthpiece. The air that is pulled through the wicking holes, while the distillate is warm, travels through the chassis and out through the mouthpiece. However, if the distillate cools rapidly in the holes before the air can make its way out, air may be trapped inside the distillate. The air may be released by warming the distillate or priming the cartridge, allowing for the air to flow through the distillate and out.

For a quick remedy, simply return the cartridge to the dram included and ensure the cartridge is safely sealed inside. Once sealed inside, place the dram into a container with hot tap water to heat up the distillate inside the cartridge – DO NOT submerge the Distillate Cartridge itself in water. After removing the cartridge from the dram hold it vertically to allow flow into the atomizer.
