Pure is a vape organization operating out of California. We’ve covered a couple Pure items, the Pure Vibe and the Pure THC syringe, prior to. Inevitably, Pure has gotten to be a massive adequate brand that counterfeit knock-offs have begun to seem.

That is the initially point to to know about Pure Vape items is that they do not sell on line. They have a list of licensed distributors exactly where you may well uncover their items for sale. The second point to note is that their distributors are only in California, so if you uncover a Pure Vape sold by a distributor outdoors California, it is also not kosher.

The Pure organization even makes use of “a proprietary triple distilled oil,” aimed to be solvent-no cost and tested to be pesticide no cost. So if you are receiving a counterfeit, none of these requirements would naturally be in impact.

The listing on DHGate for Pure One particular Vape hits 205 outcomes!

Generally we uncover half a dozen or so listings. Pure will have to have exploded in recognition on the black market place for it to have this numerous. Pure One particular is, naturally, their cartridge model.

In addition, a couple of bunk cartridges have clearly hit the streets by now, as reported by reviewers who have encountered shoddy imitation items:

bad review of fake

Not only that, but a concerned Redditor encountered suspicious cartridges in this thread, which provides us a couple of other clues. The consumer got the cartridge from a delivery service. Delivery solutions in California, not to point fingers, have been identified to be conduits for counterfeit cartridges. There’s a ton of fly-by-evening THC delivery solutions listed on internet sites like Yelp, numerous of them actually closing down their site inside weeks of their single assessment.

We located a black market place seller on Twitter:

illicit cartridge operation

In reality, that entire hashtag soup there lists the who’s who of regularly counterfeited or fake brands. Intelligent Carts, TKO, and of course the ubiquitous Dank. Sensible vape customers may just want to make it a rule of thumb from now on: Any distributor who even lists Dank, bail out pronto. Do not pass “Go”!

Here’s a different red flag:

illegal cartridge distribution on Twitter

“You do not see it you inform me I got it” – that is for the reason that he’s ordered truckloads of low-priced empties off DHGate for pennies apiece and it is the similar bunk he’s pouring into every single cartridge. Brand and strain information imply absolutely nothing!

Not to mention in the initially spot, Pure One particular does not sell on line, ever, so every single distributor supplying to sell you Pure Ones more than Twitter is a sham. We’ll say the similar for Instagram, Facebook, and so on.
