HenceTko Carts in the Black market. Dealers have been selling counterfeit TKO Extracts vape carts, but how do you tell apart the real ones from the fakes?
TKO Extracts’ vape pens have enamored weed consumers for years and won several prestigious cannabis awards in California. But, as the saying goes, imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and TKO’s success has led to black marketeers hocking counterfeit products for a quick buck.
While fake TKO cartridges may be more friendly to your wallet, they come with risks. Since unlicensed weed vape products don’t undergo regular lab testing, there’s no telling what’s in your fugazi vape pen. It could contain dangerous pesticide residues or heavy metal contamination, which can cause nausea, seizures, brain damage, cancer, and a whole host of other medical maladies.
Furthermore, black market vape cartridges are being investigated as the culprits behind America’s vaping illness epidemic, which has already claimed at least eight lives. While health authorities are still figuring out what’s causing the epidemic, evidence suggests that legal weed vapes filled with only pure, cannabis-derived oils are not causing the vaping lung illness. So, on just that one issue alone, you should be double-checking to ensure you’ve got real TKO carts.
But how do you spot a fake TKO vape cartridge? Here’s how.
Fake TKO Extacts Come in a Wide Selection of Flavors
Real TKO carts only come in four flavors/varieties: Pineapple Express, Rich Gelato, Northern Lights, and Rose Gold. If your supposed TKO cart is labeled with any strain or flavor besides the four just mentioned, you’ve got a fake on your hands.
If your TKO cart comes in any other flavor besides these four, it’s fake (image via)
Fake TKO Carts May Require a Detachable Battery
Real TKO carts use a built-in CCELL lithium-ion battery. Therefore, they only come as disposable vape pens. Hence, there’s no way to recharge the batteries or hook them up to an outlet.
If the pen that comes with your supposed TKO product is not disposable, or it does not contain real CCELL batteries, it’s probably fake. Though let’s be clear: batteries are not causing the issue here. It’s unlicensed cannabis oil manufacturers who may be filling their bootleg. Tko carts with nasty additives, untested materials, and other harmful adulterants.
Fake TKO Carts Feature the Wrong Logo.
Hence, it’s pretty easy to recognize. Fake carts, on the other hand, may not feature the correct logo.
Fake Tko Carts Are Available Outside of California
TKO Extracts is based solely in California. By law, all licensed weed products must remain within state lines; if a business distributes TKO products outside of state lines, it becomes a crime.
It’s unlikely that you’ll encounter the real thing anywhere other than the Golden State.
Fake TKO Carts Are Available Everywhere But Licensed Pot Shops
Again, by law, all legal cannabis products in California can only be sold by licensed distributors. Namely medical dispensaries, recreational retail shops, and special delivery services.
If you bought your supposed TKO carts from anywhere else besides a legit (California). Pot shop or delivery service, you’re likely dealing with fakes. Be safe out there, and shop legal shops!
