How Long Do CBD Cartridges Last?

A regular user should expect their CBD cartridge to last between 1 - 2 weeks.

When people start vaping, they have many questions. One of the most important questions that come to their mind is how long do CBD cartridges last? Experienced vapers know the answer, as a lot depends on the vaping style. In fact, many new cartridges even mention how long a full cartridge can be expected to last.

The cartridges come in different sizes, from 0.5 ml to 1 ml, 1.5 ml, and even 2 ml. So, of course, one of the main factors would be size or volume of the e-liquid. Generally, 1 ml of e-liquid is expected to last for 300-700 puffs that are one second long, depending on the type of CBD vape juice. If it is PG VG based, then it will be closer to 300 puffs, but if it is pure distillate then it is closer to 700 puffs. However, if you have a longer puff lasting 2 seconds or more, then the number of puffs would be far less.

Here are the many factors we have experienced either ourselves whilst vaping or our customers have reported:

1. Frequency Of Use

How often you use your CBD vape cartridge is the most significant factor affecting its lifespan. A typical cartridge might last between one and two weeks for daily users. For occasional users, it can last up to a month or longer.

2. Dosage And Puff Duration

The amount of CBD vape oil you consume per puff and the duration of each puff impacts how long the cartridge lasts. As already mentioned above, taking larger, longer puffs will use up your cartridge more quickly than smaller, shorter ones.

It probably isn't a good idea to take quick long puffs as you risk damaging or burning the coil as you give it less time to cool and less time for wicking.

3. Storage Conditions

Proper storage can significantly extend the life of your CBD cartridge. It is best to store cartridges in a cool and dark place, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures, which can degrade the CBD extract and affect its potency.

4. Cartridge Capacity

CBD cartridges come in various sizes, typically ranging from 0.5ml to 1ml. Naturally, a 1ml cartridge will last longer than a 0.5ml cartridge under similar usage patterns.

5. Quality of the CBD Vape Oil

Volume is not the only factor affecting how long the cartridge would last – remember that quality matters. High-quality, pure CBD vape oil tend to have a longer shelf life. Look for reputable brands that offer lab-tested products. Avoid cartridges with additives or thinning agents, which may decrease the product's longevity.

In our experience, the Aztec CBD vape vs CBD edibles lasts a lot longer than the Harmony CBD cartridges. Primarily because the Aztec carts are filled with pure CBD distillate and natural terpenes, where as the Harmony cartridges are filled with a ratio of PG VG with flavourings and CBD infused into it.

6. Device Efficiency

The type of vape pen you use can also affect how long your CBD cartridge lasts. Some devices are more efficient and allow for better control of the amount of CBD vape you vaporise with each puff. So fine tuning wattage can help.

Tips for Extending Your CBD Cartridge Life

To get the most out of your CBD cartridge:

  • Take smaller, controlled puffs.
  • Store the cartridge upright to prevent leaks and oil residue.
  • Maintain proper storage conditions. Keep in a cool dry place and out of any sunlight.
  • Use a compatible and efficient vaping device.
  • If your CBD Pen is not working after charging, then you may well have a dead battery.


In summary, the lifespan of a CBD cartridge is influenced by various factors, including usage habits, storage conditions, cartridge size, puff duration, and best CBD vapes to quit smoking. On average, for a regular user, a CBD cartridge might last between one to two weeks, but this can extend significantly for occasional users.
