Fake Space Vape Cartridges: We Explain The Difference Between Real and Fake Ones
Have you seen Space Vape cartridges for sale but you aren’t sure if they are real or not? Space Vape carts are super-popular at the moment.
However, some of the vendors retailing Space Vape cartridges are selling fakes. That’s a pretty big problem. If you end up buying fake cartridges, they probably won’t have the desired effect. Even worse, they might also harm your health. But, how do you know which are genuine?
We’ve taken the time to find out more about fake Space Vape cartridges. We’ve looked for the signs that set them apart from the genuine prefilled vape cartridges. Let’s look at some of the things you should look for.
Affecting The Space Vape Cartridge Reputation
Space Vape is a reliable brand, supplying good quality THC vape cartridges. People who have used the real thing know that they’re getting a quality product. The company’s reputation is now at risk because of the fakes available on the market.
Chinese manufacturers are now selling Space Vape packaging online which looks like the real thing. For customers who aren’t aware of what to look for, they seem genuine. Sadly, the oil the cartridges inside the packaging is of poor quality. It may also contain harmful ingredients like residual solvents and pesticides.
When people use these cartridges and think they’re genuine, they believe Space Vape is a poor-quality brand. This is causing issues for the manufacturer who works hard to preserve its reputation.
People who visit the Space Vape website can see right away that it’s a reliable manufacturer. Their website is top notch. The brand also has lab results to prove there are no pesticides in their products. They are also aware that fake versions of their cartridges are circulating on the market.
The good news is that they are working hard to combat the fakes. They are continually trying to educate (potential) clients through their social media channels. They are also taking steps to make it harder for the fakers to replicate their products.
Space Vape Educating The Public On Instagram
Space Vapes are trying to help their loyal customers to spot fake products. They do a good job and keep their Instagram account up to date. They encourage buyers to ask questions about the products they are purchasing. Space Vapes also post up-to-date information about the most recent fakes they’ve discovered. This means that buyers can quickly check before they spend their hard-earned money.
Meanwhile, Space Vapes are also consistently updating packaging and products to stay ahead of the counterfeiters.
Old Packaging Or Old Cartridges
Space Vape has recently undertaken a change of cartridge design and modification of packaging to circumvent fakers.
The newest cartridges have no alien head featured on them. Also, if you find a cartridge which has “Space Vape” on it, it’s probably fake. Another thing to look out for is the name of the flavor. All original Space Vape cartridges say the flavor name with the word “alien” before it.
As an example – “Alien Strawberry.” If the cartridge you receive has no “Alien” in its name, it isn’t genuine. One further packaging element to look out for is on the clamshell packaging. The plastic will always feature Canna PK embossed on the bottom. So long as you see Canna PK somewhere on the packaging’s bottom it’s legit.
Sometimes, the packaging contains the correct elements but in the wrong places. For example, text may be left-aligned when it should be centered. It may even be such a small difference as text not touching the alien face image. It’s therefore essential to be very familiar with the original packaging to spot fakes. Lack of familiarity is what the counterfeiters are relying on to ply their trade.
Poor Spelling And Grammar
One element which you can often see with fake Space Vape carts is poor grammar or spelling. We have seen fake cartridge packaging saying “Space High” rather than “Space Vape.”
As said before, Chinese manufacturers are making these fake packaging. They are well-known for their poor spelling. This is something which you can spot easily when checking out the packaging.
Original Space Vape cartridges feature only exemplary spelling and grammar. Make sure to check for every detail – capital letters misspelled words or incorrect names.
Poor Quality THC Oil
It’s evident that if you buy a fake Space Vape cartridge, you’re going to get poor quality oil. Space Vape’s concentrates are very high quality. They contain more than 90% THC. The original cartridges also have an oil density which is thick. The color should be clear and gold. If you notice your supposed Space Vape cartridge is dark or strongly colored, it’s probably fake.
Taste And Effect
As you might imagine, if you vape a fake Space Vape cartridge, you’ll notice the difference.
The flavor and aroma will be far from the pleasant experience you’d have with the real deal. You’ll probably taste a burned flavor or a chemical odor, and the hits would be of poor quality hits. Some users reported headaches after using a fake Space Vape THC cartridge.
Look Out For Fake Flavors
All of the authentic flavors have the word “Alien” before the flavor. It can be a real challenge to spot the facke flavors because Space Vapes releases so many different flavors that it’s hard to keep track.
This is a list of the flavors that are currently available:
- Blueberry Haze
- Berry Pie
- Fire OG
- Grandaddy Purple
- Jack Herer
- King Louis
- Limoncello OG
- Melon OG
- Sour Diesel
- Sour Tangy
All these flavors make it even harder to spot a fake. For this reason, Space Vape consistently engages with their customers through their social media channels. They are always open to questions about products that buyers come across, and they will always tell you whether a product is real or not. This helps to give buyers confidence in their purchase. It also helps them to avoid investing in an inferior or dangerous product.
There are several flavors which buyers have recently spotted which aren’t made by Space Vape. While they may be available in very similar packaging, they aren’t the genuine article.
Three examples of recently spotted fakes include Apricot, Pina Colada and Diesel. Space Vape does not produce these flavors.
Getting A Genuine Space Vape Cartridge
We recommend you to follow all the advice here about how to spot a fake Space Vape cartridge. Be cautious though, because even if you do, it’s hard to know if you’re getting a real product.
The problem is that the counterfeiters are always just one step behind the manufacturers. They are continually looking out for changes to packaging or cartridges and copying as quickly as possible.
Space Vape knows about the problem and is taking steps to combat it. Luckily, this manufacturer is ready to enter into a dialog with their loyal customers. Even though this customer service should be industry standard, it’s levels above most of their competitors.
