Dank Vapes Cartridge Review: Pesticides Found

Dank vapes cartridges have gained a lot of popularity recently, especially since they are available in states where cannabis concentrates are not legal yet.

Does this prefilled cartridge live up to the hype? This Dank Vapes cartridge review goes over the pros and cons of its features. For this review, we tried out different flavors.

Like all the other popular cartridge brands,  you can buy replicates of the Dank vapes packaging online very easy.

This company is well known for its low price, but they provide a potent cannabis oil. Each strain from Dank vapes offers some of the best tasting flavors.

There is an endless amount of Dank Vapes cartridges for sale on the black market in states where cannabis is still illegal. Platforms such as offer up have many sellers with this vape brand for sale. The prices always depend on the seller. We found full gram carts for $40 (average) in the bay area.

Dank woods is a California company which claims ownership of Dank Vapes via their Instagram page. The official Instagram of Dank Vapes has 20,000 followers right now.

You might be skeptical about the high THC percentages claimed by each Dank Vapes cartridge. Although the strength may not be 90%, it’s still strong enough to get you high and happy.

They may claim they are clean from pesticides and solvents on their packaging. However, it’s been proven below with a lab test that they are not.

Unfortunately, there isn’t any official website for this prefilled cartridge brand. There is only an Instagram page. Check it out here.

There are a couple of fake dank vapes pages on Instagram, make sure to stay away from these.

Update: Release Of New Dank Vapes Lab Tests (December 2018)

Fake Dank Vapes Cartridges 

fake dank vape cartridges

Dank Vapes popularity is the reason why there are so many counterfeits available.

Brass Knuckles is another popular brand that is having problems with counterfeits.

These two are not the only vape cartridge brands going through a counterfeit problem. People are also selling fake Exotic cartridges on the black market for very low prices. Beware of darker color cannabis oils that do not have a pleasant taste or high strength.

The reason behind the surge in counterfeits with vape cartridges has to with, you guessed it, capitalism. These companies are getting their packaging made in China. The packaging designs are then stolen and resold online.

One easy method to detect a fake Dank Vapes cartridge is by the color of the cannabis oil.

Dank Vapes For Sale

The average price for a full gram cart from this brand is $40. This price is another reason for its success. They are undercutting all the other premium cartridges for sale.

Prices do vary from state to state. The price goes down the closer you are to a state where cannabis is legal. You can also find these prefilled carts on Weedmaps for as low as $25 each in California.

Its common to find these for sale on the black market together Exotic and Mario carts. This leads me to believe the supplier of these vape cartridges is the same company or group of people.

After I followed the official Instagram of Dank Vapes I was instantly followed by multiple different accounts selling Dank Vapes via the mail. I was even messaged directly if I need carts. I believe many of these were scams trying to trick me into giving them my money. If you must buy this vape cartridge so you can see what all the hype is for yourself, then I recommend making sure it matches the pictures I have on this Dank Vapes review page.

Price rating: 5/5

Dank Vapes Review Score: 3.6/5

Until there is proof about this companies cannabis oil being clean I can not recommend this cart brand. The low price is a red flag that this THC oil may not be clean.

Dirty THC oil sells for much less than clean on the black market. Dank Vapes sells for a price that makes it more attractive than all of its competitors.

They have competitors that are too similar to them, and we are not sure if they are other companies with different brands. By the way, we also reviewed Mario Carts and Exotic Carts, make sure to read these reviews as well!

I am going to reach out directly to them via their Instagram page and update here with follow up questions.

    it never tells us what pesticides were found ? and that lab sheet shows “pass” on every category.. so i guess my question is what has been found ?

    • Jesus Sanchez says:

      Sorry, I had only posted the test for the THC content, I forgot to add the test for pesticides. Kindly check again and please do not vape dank vapes.

      • Enrico Yu Isleta says:

        I was about to order this on instagram to REMOVED, No advertising scams.

        Do you think he is a scammer? Is it not worth it? I’m in an illegal country too though..

        • Jesus says:

          If you don’t care abou your health and possibly suffering from serious health problems because of the pesticides you will vape with the THC oil from Dank vape then buy it. I advise you not to buy.

          • DonnaHue says:

            Thank you for writing this article Jesus. My son used Dank Carts for approximately 30 days and suffered a massive seizure and was rushed to the emergency room. He had no prior history of seizure or epilepsy. One week later he experienced weakness and could not stand on his legs. Tremors and mild shaking are now happening daily. He stopped using this stuff finally after we uncovered what it was. Even after he has ceased using the residual toxicity is still causing problems. I hope it is not permanent. Please all you folks out there posting on this site, stay away from drugs. They contain 100s of chemicals that are difficult or impossible for your natural body to deal with.

        • Sonic says:

          But is it only the fake ones sold in the black market or the real ones too you weren’t specific with that

        • Josh says:

          How do u order them online

      • David says:

        highly doubt an authentic dank vape product was tested – you probably tested a counterfeit

    • Leslie says:

      No it does not say pass in each column. Just FYI.

    • Carmen says:

      There are clearly “fails” throughout. Stop hitting the pen and open your eyes 😂

  2. Jason says:

    Are they considered harmful pesticides ?

  3. Luke says:

    What type of cart would you recommend?

  4. Jessica says:

    I just started smoking thc vape pens and the brand we were receiving was this dank vape. For the past week I’ve been having really bad chest pains and I couldn’t figure out what was up. Something in me decided to go ahead and do some research on these carts and wow…., I am shocked I didn’t do my research before putting this shit in my body. Quitting smoking for a week to see if I feel any better and throwing out all this crap. I’ll stick with the flower

    • Kyle says:

      The pesticides that are found in these extract cartridges all stem from the product that was used to make them. The flower. Nearly 70-90% of flower out on the market contains some trace of pesticides you can go ahead and test it yourself. Since there is no federal legalization in the US, no products have to be regulated by any organization. If people have been smoking for such a long period of time without any serious health problems knowing there is some small trace of pesticide inside it, how bad can it really be?

      • Scott Lewis says:

        Pennsylvania has a zero policy on pesticides/mold content. It’s up to States like PA to require proper testing on all products to protect people.

      • Rick says:

        You are exactly right Kyle. Pesticides in flower have been around out here in Calif. for 50 years. Not one single case of poisoning. I also challenge anyone to prove a case of someone getting poisoned by pesticides in a cartridge. I’m not suggesting it’s NOT great for you ….. but not nearly to the level of fear mongering I see authors like Jesus and others try stir up.

      • Don’t make me say it….

  5. Tim says:

    I’m just curious if the tips that were sent in for testing, were the ones pictured? If so, those are fake/counterfeit.

    • Daniel says:

      Me too, the ones in the picture are fake dank Vapes so that’s probably why pesticides were found in them. Not saying that real ones don’t have pesticides, but you would have to test real cartridges to find out.

    • Fake Name Just Cause says:

      The cylindrical see through tips are the same on their Instagram. What makes you think they are fake?

      • Samo says:

        There tons of fakes going around, they even look real but checkout the bottom of the cart, if it’s too dilated then it’s a fake. Just do a taste test and you will tell right away!

        • joseph burgis says:

          I’ve been getting Mario Carts for awhile and they made me cough hard so I became skeptical about their authenticity. The fact that there is no company name and that they are not concerned with any copyright violation with Nintendo lead me to the conclusion they are all bootleg. Not necessarily fake but more like not what is advertised, i.e. THC content and “pesticide free”. Anyway I just got a Dank Vape and while it doesn’t make me cough it doesn’t seem to hit very well. Are there “real” DVs out there? What do you mean check the bottom of the cart or dilated? As for taste I got lemon slush and I’m not sure if the flavor is from terpenes or artificial. I live in SC so I have nothing to compare it to

  6. Ty says:

    Check the bottom of the vape cart to see if it’s cloudy. Dank carts flavor is very strong and distinct. Almost like candy. You should be able to taste it by itself without the battery, and it will leave you sitting there for a little bit actually enjoying the taste.

  7. Travis says:

    They have new packaging now. Might want to test a real cart this time…….

  8. Bryce manning says:

    Can we get test results for Lions Breath?

  9. Chris says:

    You forgot ATF in the list. And yes, they have new packaging to help fight the counterfeits. Also a completely new lone of flavors. 20 cereal flavors actually.

  10. J says:

    This “lab test” is not legit. I have hit many dank vapes and I can assure you that it’s not 63% thc haha

    • Fake Name Just Cause says:

      That lab test is way more legit than your opinion. I’ve smoked many dank vapes and I can assure you that they are in the 60% range.

  11. johnny crack says:

    fake news

  12. Yo says:

    Can someone post pics of REAL DANKs and someone post pics of FAKEs packaging? My oil is clear light not dark… tastes like fruity pebbles but sometimes i cough… no chest pain. Mimosa tastes citrusy… clear oil too.

    • smokesafe says:

      Real DankVapes sold by Dank Woods can be noticed by looking on the side of the boxes and under the cartridge itself, Real ones say “dankvapesofficialaccount” fake ones say “dankvapesofficial” Real ones have a “CA###” serial on the bottom of the cartridge itself. small imprinted on the metal.

  13. Curious says:

    Sow here can I go to make sure I’m buying the correct ones?

  14. Ricky says:

    for anyone that has some that doesnt want them ill gladly take them i still like them

  15. Yzzy says:

    I get em here in the San Diego area, they are tasty and on the stronger side from most carts..also depends on your tolerances. I have tried alot of brands.
    Cheapest I have gotten dank vapes is for $22 each
    After seeing the test results, yeah I’m spend alittle more for a healither choice.
    For the record, I’m a medical patient in my state

  16. Rob says:

    Enjoying Grapeape now without the first hint of a cough and oil is clear as can be. Labeled as 91.74 thc and I’ll concur with that as 1 hit or 2 will toast ya

  17. Jo says:

    No DANKS are “real”! They are NOT coming from a dispencery!!!! They were some of the first guys to use flavored terpenes snd boom success!!!! You see they have a instagram page only?!?! Hahahaha!!! And the pesticide thing is a scare tactic! Marketing skills, dirty game!!! Its a billion dollar business! Do the fuking math!! Hundreds of thousands of dollars profits off a few thousand carts!!! People been smoking this same weed for years and nobody thought about pesticides?!?!?!! Hahahah real carts from real dispenseries cost about 40 a half gram… REAL CARTS COME FROM REAL BUSINESSES THAT ARE REGULATED! WITH A PATENT….! DUMMIES THINK IF IT COMES FROM A “LEGAL” STATE THAT IT MUST BE REAL… HAHAHA! THATS WHY SOME PEOPLE ARE THE BUSINESSMEN AND SOME ARE THE CONSUMERS!!!! INSTEAD OF GETTING YOUR ADVISE FROM JOE SCHMO ON YOUTUBE OR ANY OF THESE SITES GO FIND SOME REAL COMPANIES! YA KNOW? PAY TAXS.. FEDERALY MANDATED! STATE REGULATED… INSPECTED!! DANKS HAS NONE OF THAT! PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SHOT OVER THIS EXACT NAME WE ARE TOSSING AROUND HERE! ITS A BILLION DOLLAR BIZZNES! OF COURSE THERE GONNA BE HATERS..

  18. SMOKESAFE says:

    Everybody, Easy way to tell real from fake, Dank woods is the real company that sells them, look on the side of your box and make sure it says “dankwoodsofficialaccount”, if it says just “dankvapesofficial” than it is fake, also on the bottom of the cartridges that where you screw it in, you’ll see a California serial “CA###” that also is a sign that it is real. Hope you all continue to smoke safe! Watch what you put in your bodies!

    • DonnaH says:

      My son suffered a massive seizure after using 1 Dank Cert. I checked the serial # as you suggested and it said CA019. Thank you. This information helped us. At least we know it’s not counterfeit. But I’m not sure if that’s a good thing. He’s really sick now and he’s usually VERY healthy and athletic. This thing he used was a certified Dank product and it still caused much damage. Wanted you to know.

  19. Vj says:

    My dank vapes gorilla glue says dankvapes official on the box but still has a ca serial number on the cart. Is it half real half fake ? Lol. I smoke the fk out of it. 25 for a g cart yewww..
