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 Extracts has led to black marketers 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.
TKO Extacts Come in a Wide Selection of Flavors
Real TKO carts only come in four flavors/varieties: Pineapple Express TKO Extracts, Rich Gelato TKO Extracts, Northern Lights TKO Extracts, and Rose Gold TKO Extracts. 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.
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.
