CO2 cartridges are named after the CO2 extraction process that produces the oil they contain. For many, CO2 cartridges have become the gold standard of vape cartridges due to their purity and potency. (via. Klover)
CO2 oils can retain moderate levels of natural terpenes, meaning they contain much of cannabis’s natural flavor and aroma even after being processed. By comparison, concentrates like distillate have been processed to the point that they contain practically no natural flavors and must instead be infused with artificial ones.
How is CO2 Oil Made?
To make CO2 oil, concentrate makers manipulate temperature and pressure to turn CO2 into a liquid. Cannabis plant material is then soaked in the liquid, which chemically strips cannabinoids and terpenes out of the plant matter. After this process is complete, the plant matter is removed from the solution.
From there, the concentrate maker again manipulates pressure and temperature to turn the CO2 back into a gas. When the gas evaporates away, it leaves behind a concentrated substance comprised almost entirely of cannabinoids and terpenes.
The final product is a concentrate filled with natural flavors, much different from your usual distillate.

CO2 Oil vape cartridges are gaining popularity amongst many vape pen users. The combination of moderate terpene flavors, aroma, and THC levels create which create an overall experience while vaping often referred to as the “entourage effect”. CO2 oil cartridges won’t always have the highest THC content but the added attributes more than make up for it for many.
