    How to Fix a Leaky Disposable Hemp Vape Cartridge

    There is really nothing quite like a Gas Disposable Vape Cart, which offers a fast-acting, potent, and easy way to enjoy our favorite cannabinoids and terpenes throughout the day.  It’s no wonder why hemp vape cartridges continue to be the most popular type of hemp product on the market.  But, while cartridges are generally constructed very well and rely on quality technology, once in a while, they do leak.  Fortunately, in most cases, this doesn’t mean that you need to throw out your cartridge and buy a new one.

    Why Do Some Disposable Hemp Vape Cartridges Leak?

    First, let’s point out that a leaking disposable vape cartridge is very rare.  As time goes on, carts get more advanced, and today’s models are designed to prevent leaks as much as possible.  But, there’s always the chance of human error, either on your part as the user, or on the part of the manufacturer. 

    So, what are the most common reasons or causes for a leaking hemp vape cart then, if even those odds are really low?

    Reason/Cause #1: They’re Overfilled

    Sometimes, you’ll end up with a cartridge that was overfilled by the manufacturer.  If the vape oil exceeds a certain amount, it has nowhere to go but outside of the cartridge.  Usually, it will come out of the mouthpiece, and you’ll end up with a mouth full of vape oil.

    Reason/Cause #2: You’re Pulling Too Hard or Too Much

    The most common cause for a leak is the user pulling on the mouthpiece too hard, or simply taking too many puffs one after another.  Both of these cases cause the coil inside the cartridge to lose its ability to catch up to the demands of the vaper, since the coil has to have a chance to heat the vape oil so that it can be converted into vapor.  The result?  A mouth full of vape oil.

    Reason/Cause #3: It’s Not Tight Enough

    If vape oil is leaking out the bottom of the cartridge, it could be that a piece isn’t screwed on tightly enough, which again is the fault of the manufacturer, unless you have been tampering with the cartridge yourself.

    Reason/Cause #4: Poorly Manufactured

    A poorly manufactured cartridge can cause leak issues.  It can be that the construction is faulty, or the cart contains a cheap coil that burns out quickly and loses its ability to turn the vape oil into vapor.

    Is a Leaking Disposable Hemp Vape Cartridge Dangerous?

    A leaking cartridge, thankfully, isn’t dangerous.  Rather, it’s just an annoyance.  That’s not to say that it isn’t messy, of course.  What could be potentially dangerous is if the leaked vape oil somehow gets consumed by a child or a pet.  This means that if your coil is leaking, you’ll want to be very aware of where the vape oil is leaking onto.

    How to Fix a Leaking Disposable Hemp Vape Cartridge

    Now, we can get to the quick ways for fixing a leaking cartridge.  Of course, the key is also preventing it, which’s why you should only buy high-quality cartridges from trusted brands that are known to sell vape carts that don’t come with leaking problems.

    #1: Go Easy with Your Inhales

    First, make sure that you manage your vaping sessions in a way that doesn’t cause leaks.  Be conscious of how hard you’re pulling on the mouthpiece, and avoid chain-vaping, as, like we said earlier, both of these things can cause oil to leak out of the mouthpiece.  Taking big, long and deep inhales can definitely lead to vape oil leaking into your mouth, as can hitting your vape nonstop.

    #2: Check to Make Sure the Cartridge is Tight

    If a leak is coming out of the bottom of the cartridge, you’ll need to check all of the individual parts to ensure that they’re screwed tightly.  This is also why you should never try to take a cartridge apart yourself – it’s easy to break the seals that connect the components, causing inevitable leaks that cannot be fixed since the cartridge is now damaged.

    What to Do if Your Disposable Cartridge Arrives Leaking

    In the event that your cartridge is leaking in the package that it arrived in, you’ll want to contact the manufacturer immediately.  This would mean that the product is defective, and therefore, should make it eligible for an exchange.  Make sure that you keep the product in its original package, unused, since once it’s opened, the manufacturer may no longer be able to honor your request.

    Prevent a Leaking Disposable Hemp Cartridge and Enjoy Your Vape Oil Down to the Last Hit

    A leaking disposable cartridge can be messy and frustrating, and besides that, it can cause you to waste precious vape oil.  So, your best bet is to stick to a trusted manufacturer, treat your cartridge with care by never tampering with it, and monitor how you take those pulls.  Overall, most leaks are easy to prevent, and easy to repair.
