How Long Do THC Disposables Last?

Disposable vape pens, also known as THC disposables, are increasing in popularity. Not only are they convenient because they’re pre-filled and come with a built-in battery, but many of them can even be recharged to ensure that you get maximum enjoyment for your money.

But just how long do these disposable THC vapes last, and how can you ensure that you get the most from yours? Here’s what you need to know.

What are THC disposables?

THC disposables are a category of vaporizers that are filled with THC concentrates. Like cannabis flower, they come in different strains and varieties (indica, sativa, hybrid). They also come in different sizes. This will vary depending on the state you live in and what kind of marijuana has been legalized. However, the common sizes for disposables include:

  • 300mg
  • 500mg (0.5g)
  • 1,000mg (1.0g)

This measurement refers to how much liquid concentrate is in the pen or cartridge. There will also be another measurement for the THC content, which may be expressed as a number (i.e. 587mg) or as a percent (81% THC), or both. Make sure that you know the difference so that you can choose the best disposables for your needs.

Disposables may come with or without a button. Some operate simply by inhaling. And as mentioned, some will also include a charging port. A few high-end disposables even come with a small charging cord to ensure that you have the right equipment, but that’s rare.

What is the strongest THC disposable?

There are several options for stronger disposables when it comes to THC content. In fact, it’s part of the reason that many people like vapes in the first place. Based on the percentage of THC, you’ll find some of the strongest options topping out at 92% to 96%, which is more than three times as concentrated as most flower.

Of course, you’ll want to consider more than just the THC content. Some strains are known to have more potent effects, too. Depending on what type of high you’re looking for, you can find several heavy-hitting strains like:

How to use a disposable THC vape

Using a disposable THC vape pen is fairly simple. It’s like using a vape pen that’s not disposable, or a nicotine vape, for those who are familiar. As above, there are two types of operation for THC vapes:

  • Button: There is a button that you must press to activate the pen, and then you inhale for five to 10 seconds (or whatever you’re comfortable with).
  • No Button: You should be able to simply inhale on the vape and activate the battery, then inhale. Once you’re done, just stop inhaling.

The amount of time you inhale (or the “pull” you take) is a matter of personal preference. However, that, combined with how frequently you use the disposable, will determine how long it lasts.

If you have a rechargeable vape, it will usually blink when it needs to be charged. You can plug it into a micro-USB or Type-C charging cord (depending on the vape pen) and charge it back up.

Once the pen is out of THC concentrate, it will stop working. Some blink to notify you, while others might have a red light. Others simply don’t work when you go to inhale, letting you know that they’re done.

Once the pen is empty, you can pitch it and move on to the next one! No need to deal with batteries, charging devices, or any other mess.

What is the typical lifespan of THC disposables before they need to be replaced?

This depends on two main factors: the size of the disposable and how you use it. For example, someone who hits a one-gram vape pen (1,000mg) once or twice a day might find that it lasts them a month or longer. Conversely, some people will go through a 300mg disposable in a single day.

Some vape pens seem to burn faster than others. The type of concentrate inside may have some impact on that. For example, live resins are great because they burn purely and last longer, while a low-quality generic THC vape might burn up a lot faster.

According to the experts, here are some ballpark figures:

  • 300mg – 80-100 puffs
  • 500mg – 120-150 puffs
  • 1,000mg – 200-300 puffs

Again, this will vary depending on your use and other factors, but it’s a helpful estimate, anyway.

What are the factors that affect the longevity of THC disposables?

As mentioned, the biggest factors affecting how long your THC disposables will last include:

  • Size
  • THC potency
  • Concentrate type/quality
  • Frequency of use
  • Rechargeable vs non-rechargeable (some people feel they get more life from rechargeable disposables)

If you buy high-quality disposable THC vapes from a company like Verts Dispensary, you can always trust you’re getting convenient, discreet options that come in so many strains you might not be able to narrow down your options!

Are there any storage recommendations to prolong the lifespan of THC disposables?

THC disposables, like cartridges, need to be stored in a cool, dry space away from heat, sunlight, and humidity. This will ensure that they remain in good condition for as long as possible. It’s also advised to store the pens vertically so that the oil doesn’t accidentally leak out (which is rare) or you get a mouthful of concentrate when you take a pull—that’s never fun.

If you have rechargeables, do not store them on the charger. Like all electronics, you should plug them in until they are fully charged and then remove them.

Can the duration of THC disposable usage vary depending on the brand or quality of the product?

Brand quality is definitely one of the leading factors affecting how long THC disposable vapes last and whether they deliver the smoking experience that people want. Some brands are committed to quality and will only sell top-shelf products, including disposables. Then, some brands just want to get “affordable” products out there and will sell lower-quality products at a lesser cost.

For example, some lower-quality brands will use a different oil to mix with the THC in the vape disposable. Thus, the oil burns up faster, using the entire disposable faster than you might like. It’s a good idea to choose reputable brands and stick with them when it comes to disposables (and other cannabis products).

Are disposable THC vapes worth it?

This is going to be a personal decision, ultimately, but many cannabis users swear by disposable vapes. They’re cheap, convenient, and come in tons of strains, varieties, and sizes. Plus, since a lot of them are starting to include a recharging feature, they offer even more value for the money.
