Vaping may seem like a millennial invention, but efforts to bring electric vaporizers to the market have been prominent since the 1920s. After more unsuccessful attempts in the 1960s and 1980s, a Chinese pharmacist named Hon Lik invented modern vape pens in 2003. By then, the world was certainly ready for it! Today, many substances can be vaped, including CBD. If you’re on the prowl for the industry’s leading CBD prefilled cartridge, then look no further!
What is a CBD Prefilled Cartridge?
Prefilled CBD cartridges contain either broad-spectrum, full-spectrum, or isolate formulations of CBD hemp extract. Other ingredients are often needed to make vape juice viable for a cartridge, such as thinning agents. These agents turn thick juice, prone to clogging and burning, into a viscosity that can flow more easily through cartridges.
Popular thinning agents include propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycol (VG), polyethylene glycol (PEG), and medium-chain triglycerides (MCT).
Manufacturers heavily favor ingredients like these now and in the past. But, recent studies have suggested these thinning agents can be harmful once heated and broken down. Cheef Botanicals’ cartridges do not use any of these concerning agents. Instead, we only use broad-spectrum CBD and natural terpenes!
Vape juice is not to be confused with CBD oil. If a cartridge meant for vaping contains CBD oil, they (hopefully) mean distillate, as vaping CBD oil can be hazardous for you. You can take CBD oil (also called tincture) orally, sublingually, or topically, but you should never inhale it!

A CBD cartridge will generally have a 510-thread compatible with practically all mainstream vape devices. Once screwed in and turned on, coils will heat the vape juice until it turns into delicious CBD vapors. Prefilled CBD cartridges offer a discreet and portable method of cannabidiol consumption. All you need is a battery and your vape cartridge is good to go!
Benefits of Vaping a CBD Prefilled Cartridge
There are several positive benefits from every form of cannabidiol. The lack of flavor in an isolate means you can easily mix into food or drinks. Oil and edibles offer great precision with dosage amounts. A prefilled CBD cartridge comes with its own benefits which include convenience, quick efficacy, and high bioavailability!
The effects of CBD vape can be felt almost instantaneously (30 – 90 seconds) due to its fast absorption rate. Most other ingestion methods require the substance first to be broken down by our gastric tract. By inhaling the cannabidiol, it’s dispersed throughout our bloodstream via the alveoli in our lungs, thus, bypassing the gastrointestinal system and working faster.
Bioavailability refers to the percentage of a CBD dose that is actually absorbed by the body. For example, oral consumption of CBD typically has a bioavailability rate between 10% and 20%.
So, for every 100mg of orally-consumed CBD, only about 10-20mgs will make it into your bloodstream. When compared to other methods of cannabidiol consumption? Vaping has a very high bioavailability rate, which is 50-60%!
Is It Better To Vape or Smoke CBD?
Smoking or vaping CBD is a better option for some consumers. There are a few methods in which inhaling CBD is possible: CBD flower, CBD vapes, and CBD concentrates. It is worth first considering the benefits of vaping. Many describe vapors feeling “cleaner” or “less harsh” than smoking CBD flower.
People with sensitive lungs might especially enjoy vaping over smoking hemp flower or a CBD joint. Others might prefer flower if they find charging a battery to be inconvenient. If an individual opposes inhaling CBD then perhaps mixing a concentrate or tincture into food or drink will suffice. There’s a CBD product for just about everyone! It’s all dependent on each person’s needs.
However, vaping can also filter out potentially harmful impurities that might be present in hemp. Vape juice is a cleaner option due to the extraction process since it eliminates all the plant material.
That means when you vape CBD, you avoid incinerating the plant material and inhaling smoke at high temperatures. Instead, you only inhale valuable cannabinoids and terpene vapors at low heat levels.
Additionally, the best-prefilled carts are assembled under strict, sanitized conditions. Good companies do this to ensure that you’re only inhaling the listed ingredients. On the other hand, smoking flower is only guaranteed sterile until you open the package.
CBD flower needs to be stored in a place where preserves the freshness. Prefilled carts don’t require as much precaution.
The vapors from a distillate will also be more concentrated, meaning less is needed for a strong hit. As its name implies, the same is true for CBD concentrate. Concentrates have a good shelflife that provides a consistent experience while offering a substantial bang for your buck!

Cheef Botanicals CBD Prefilled Cartridge Formulation
Cheef Botanicals’ 510-thread vape cartridges are prefilled with our top-tier CBD vape juice. The ingredients of this juice are natural terpenes and broad-spectrum CBD extract. Like cannabinoids, terpenes are found in hemp and they affect the flavor and smell of each strain. Terps, as many consumers refer to them, also have several benefits themselves.
Here at Cheef, we don’t use any additives like artificial flavoring. However, we want tasty flavors and sweet smells in our CBD cartridges just as much as our customers do! To make delicious flavors and aromas, we add natural terpenes back into the carts, resulting in yummy, all-natural juice.
Our CBD vape cartridges contain broad-spectrum cannabidiol extract. To ensure high quality, our vape carts use CO2-extracted CBD from premium Colorado hemp. Domestic hemp is always preferable to imported plants, as American crops are governed by rules and regulations that ensure its quality.
What to Look For and What to Avoid in CBD Prefilled Cartridges
A CBD cartridge is nothing without a battery! So you certainly want to be sure your cart can fit inside your vaporizer. A 510-thread is considered universal among vape pens, and Cheef Botanicals’ CBD cartridges are exclusively this thread size. When shopping, keep an eye out for your vape device’s appropriate thread type.
While browsing, you may notice vape carts label themselves as either broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD. Broad-spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids extracted from hemp, besides any THC.
Full-spectrum, on the other hand, includes THC (0.3% or less) along with everything else. Both of these formulations offer what’s called the “entourage effect.” This refers to the compounds working synergistically together.
If you want to avoid THC and still gain the entourage effect, try a broad spectrum CBD vape cartridge. If you don’t mind THC you can go with a full spectrum product.
Avoiding Vape Juice Labeled as Oil
As we discussed earlier, you should avoid any brand that labels their vape juice as oil. When vaping first received mainstream attention, nicotine was almost exclusively what was in people’s vape cartridges.
In the past, people would refer to nicotine e-juice as “vape oil.”
As the industry grew and other products (such as THC and CBD) were able to be vaporized, the terminology changed. CBD tincture is more accurately referred to as oil.
As a result, any company still referring to the distillate inside their vape cartridge as “CBD oil” is out of touch with the industry. CBD oil contains carrier oils, making it unhealthy to smoke or vaporize.
How Long Do CBD Prefilled Cartridges last?
How long your CBD vape cartridge lasts depends on how often you use it. Some people will only “sip” their vaporizer. Sipping refers to taking small hits occasionally throughout the day. Others will take massive pulls from their devices, exhaling big thick clouds every few minutes. There’s no wrong way to use your CBD vape!
Still, we can offer some rough estimates. When it comes to longevity, Cheef Botanicals’ 200mg and 400mg carts offer 200-400 puffs per cart, with 1-2mg of CBD per hit.
Why Cheef Botanicals?
Why choose Cheef? Because with our high-quality CBD, your vaping experience will be even better. Also, since we only use all-natural ingredients, the health risks associated with thinning agents and additives are not present in our products. If you want healthy, naturally flavorful, responsibly made CBD vape juice, look no further!
Prefilled vape carts are one of the best cannabidiol products on the market. With convenience, fast-acting effects, and high bioavailability, Cheef Botanicals’ cartridges manage to offer the best quality without making sacrifices at the customer’s expense.
