10 Ways on How to Smoke Oil Cartridge Without Pen:

1. Remove the Metal Cap:

There are two ways to get the metal cap off; the easiest way is by using your fingers. The other option is to use needle-nose pliers, but you should be careful not to bend up the edges of the cartridge when doing this. The next step is to locate the spring inside the cartridge and remove it. The spring keeps the ink in place, so you will need to put it back when you’re done. Now that the spring is removed, you can begin removing the ink from the cartridge.

2. Use a Dab Tool:

You can poke holes or make partitions in the cartridge using a dab tool to separate the oil from the cotton. This is an easy way to use the same oil in different vaporizers or re-use it. If you want to know more about how to use a dab tool in cartridges, check out our guide here.

3. Draw Out Oil:

If you don’t have any tools handy, there is another way to separate the oil from the cotton without much work. First, take a paperclip and straighten it out completely. Then, poke holes through the metal disc on top of the cartridge to draw all the oil into one side of the cartridge. Once this is done, use your fingers to puff out the oil.

4. Roll a Joint:

If you have a pre-filled cartridge, all you have to do is attach it to a joint and smoke away! This is especially helpful if your cartridge can’t be re-filled or you want to switch flavors quickly. But keep in mind that if the cartridge has sat for a long time, it might be difficult to attach it to the joint. Also, make sure there is no oil left before replacing the metal cap, or else it’ll leak! If you have a cartridge that needs to be filled, start by unscrewing the mouthpiece. This will expose the heating element, which you should avoid touching. Then, use a small dabber or needle to apply your concentrate directly onto the heating element.

5. Cut Open the Cartridge:

If none of the above options work for you, simply cut open the cartridge. Next, use a dab tool to pry the black mouthpiece from the center tube. Remove everything from the inside of the cartridge, then reassemble everything. You should be good to go for a more leisurely smoke!

6. Fill Ugly Cartridge:

If your cartridge was made before the vape pen craze, you might have an ugly one on your hands. But don’t worry! If you feel like making it your own, use a marker or sharpie to color over the old logo and doodle away. You can also take a permanent marker or paint pen and draw designs onto it. Let it dry before smoking it; otherwise, the oil might leak out.

7. Use a Paperclip:

One of the most popular ways to use an oil cartridge is by using a paper clip or metal rod to make a hole on top of the cartridge and then lighting up with a lighter. Be careful when doing this, as you can burn yourself or the cartridge.

8. Use a Knife or Scissors:

Using a knife is one of the most common ways to open up the cartridge, but you have to be careful not to cut into any cotton fibers inside it. Scissors can also do the job, but they might take longer than a knife. Also, make sure you cut on the outer part of the cartridge so as not to damage your oil.

9. Heat from Below:

If none of these methods work, all you have to do is heat up the cartridge from underneath. Then, use a bit lighter or an electronic cigarette and hold it under its metal ring for a few seconds. There is a chance that the oil will fall out when doing this, so you might want to do it over some paper or on a plate.

10. Use an Electric Nail:

To get the most out of your cartridge and not waste any oil, we recommend using an electric burn-resistant nail known as Dynavap. This will allow you to take a puff and let the vapor sit inside your mouth before taking another puff, giving you the most out of each cartridge!
