What is a Vape Cartridge?

Before we look at how to hit a cart with no pen, let’s take a quick look at what vape cartridges are.

A vape cartridge is an electronic device that contains liquid cannabis concentrates. It is typically used with a battery to heat the liquid and create vapor, which can then be inhaled. Vape cartridges come in various sizes and shapes, with different e-liquids containing different levels of cannabis concentrate.

The best dab cart flavors come with various additives, including essential oils and terpenes. This enhances the flavor of the vape while providing added potential medicinal benefits.


How Do Vape Cartridges Work?

Vape cartridges have several parts that work together to create vapor. The cartridge contains a heating element, typically a coil or wick, which is activated when the user presses a button. This triggers the battery to heat up and vaporize the liquid inside the cartridge.

As the liquid turns into vapor, it can be inhaled by the user.

The coil or wick heats up the liquid in the cartridge and creates vapor. The type of wick used affects the flavor, density, and overall experience of the vape. Different materials can be used for the wicks, including cotton, silica, ceramic, or stainless steel mesh.

To hit a cart without coughing, it’s recommended that you take a few short, slow puffs rather than one long drag. This allows the vapor to cool down before it reaches your throat and reduces the chances of coughing.

Additionally, start with a low temperature and gradually increase it until you find the optimal temperature for your device. And be sure to keep an eye on how much liquid is in the cartridge, as running out of liquid can cause the device to stop working.


How to Smoke Cart Without Pen

Let’s look at several ways to smoke a cart without a pen.

Remove the Metal Cap

One of the most popular methods for smoking a cart without a pen is to remove the metal cap. Use your fingers or needle-nose pliers to carefully remove the metal cap from the cartridge. Once removed, locate the spring that keeps the wick in place and gently remove it. This will allow you to draw the oil and place it in another device.

Use a Dab Tool

Using a dab tool to separate the oil from the cart is another great way to vape without a pen. Put your dab tool at the bottom of the cartridge and twist it until the oil comes out. This method works best with thick oils, so check the viscosity before attempting this.

Use a Paper Clip

If you don’t have a dab tool, you can also use a paper clip to separate the oil from the cart. Carefully insert the paperclip into the hole at the bottom of the cartridge and twist it until the oil comes out. Again, this method works best with thick oils.

Attach it to a Joint

One of the easiest and most discreet ways to smoke a cart without a pen is to attach your cart to a joint. This method can be used with any type of cart, and you don’t need any additional tools or devices. Just carefully attach your cart to the end of a joint and light up.

However, note that your delta 8 cart may taste burnt or ashy if you smoke it in this method. To mitigate this, you can use a glass filter to catch the ash and keep it from entering your cart. Also, cartridges that have sat for a long time may not work as well when attached to a joint.

Heat From Below

Another effective way to smoke a cart without a pen is by using heat from below. You’ll need a lighter or some kind of torch to do this.

Hold the lighter or torch at least two inches away from your cart, and heat it until you can see a slight puff of smoke coming out. This is an effective way to get a good hit without a pen.

However, be careful not to keep the flame on too long, or you could burn the cart.

Once you have generated some heat, you can inhale the smoke directly from the cart. Keep your face back and away from the flame, as you don’t want to get burned. Additionally, it’s important to remember that this method generates more heat than when using a pen, so you may not want to use it if you’re trying to conserve the flavor of your product.

Regardless of the method, ensure you learn how to remove all the wax from your cart. This is because wax can accumulate in your device, resulting in slower hits and potentially clogging. To clean the cart, use a cotton swab or paper towel for a quick wipe-down.


How To Hit Cart Without Pen

Now that you’ve learned how to smoke a cart without a pen, let’s look at how to hit it. Below are a few practical ideas:

Strip An Android Charger

The most effective way to hit a cart without a pen is by using an Android charger. To do this, you’ll need to strip the USB. You will find four wires inside: red and black (positive and negative), white and green (ground).

Remove white and green wires since you will not need them. Strip the black and red wires. Twist the wiring of each one together. Insert the black wire inside the hole at the bottom of the cart. Touch the red one to the side by the hole you inserted the black wire. You’ll start hearing a hissing noise. Now take the hit!

This method delivers a harsh hit, so it’s best for experienced vapers.

Use A 9V Battery and Two Alligator Clips

If you don’t have an Android charger, you can use a 9V battery and two alligator clips to hit your cart. To do this, attach one of the clips to the negative side of the battery and insert it into the bottom hole of your cart.

Attach the other clip to the positive side of the battery and insert it into the top hole of your cart. Hold the clips firmly for a few seconds and remove them. The cart should be activated and ready to use.

It is important to note that this method may cause a burning smell when the battery heats up due to the current running through it. Also, take care not to touch any of the exposed metal parts on your cart, as they may become hot during this process.


No Pen? Try These Instead

These methods can help you get a hit from your cart without a pen. As long as you’re careful, these methods can be safe and effective.
