    so i have a broken cartridge that's full of oil. the cartridge was clearly defective and does nothing (tested with multiple vape pens). is there any practical way to extract the oil from the cartridge? i've tried this before and it was a complete mess and basically a waste of time lol. does anyone have any tips?

    it's a single-use cart not designed to be refilled so i'm not seeing any obvious way to open it without breaking it.

    No tips personally, but hopefully someone can help! :eek: :nun:

    Are you able to unscrew it at the mouthpiece? If so you could use a syringe to pull it up maybe.

    if you purchased this thru a medical despensary you should be able to return for an exchange

    Please post a photo.
    You may need to inject some ethanol to thin your product, draw the contents out and evaporate the ethanol.

    I used a dosing syringe with a metal tip that came with a terpene kit. I put warm water in a small dish to get the distillate moving and sucked it up with the syringe...not the easiest but it worked.

    I use a hair dryer, on lowest setting. Warm the cartridge, and the contents. Don't over heat it. It will pour out, or you can use a large bore syringe.

    You could also put the cart in very high % alcohol (95% at least) if you can get an opening in the cart and the concentrate should dissolve out with a bit of patience and swirling.
    Then evaporate the alcohol and the oil should then be reclaimable.
