Stay away from Bart Simpson cartridges. They are most likely prefilled with harmful cannabis oil that could not be sold legally. Illegal cannabis oil often fails lab tests for having dangerous amounts of pesticides.
There are a huge number of illegitimate THC cartridges on the market. Though vaping already have potential risk in general from being so new and without enough research on it, the chemicals in illegitimate prefilled cartridges are especially dangerous.
There was recently a bust where Customs seized 1.5 million in Rick and Morty vape pens. They even seized some carts with the Simpsons character too.
Bart Carts have images of Bart from The Simpsons on them. Buyers are likely to be drawn to images of this well-known character. But just because the carts use a famous character does not mean they contain quality products.
Over ten strains of Bart Carts have been found by buyers, including supposed hybrids, indicas, and sativas. But most likely they are just random strains that are not accurate to their labels.
The people selling these THC vape cartridges are already breaking the law, and have no intentions of being honest with their strains.
First, Bart Simpson is branded content. Any content related to The Simpsons would have to come through the creators or current owners. Without the permission of the show creators, there is no regulation of the products.
There is also little online presence, and no website, for Bart Carts. Most legitimate THC companies have websites with branded content and information about their products.
With only a now-deactivated Instagram, there is no way to read up on the ingredients in Bart Carts. The only way to find out what the carts contain would be to run a test on the contents.
Cannabis Thrives reviewed Bart Carts in 2019, testing out two of the strains. They reported normal effects from the carts they tried but noted an absence of lab results on the ingredients.
The carts may give users a “high,” like legitimate THC, but at the great price of inhaling harmful chemicals. The CDC reports high cases of vaping-related injuries and deaths, many because of illegitimate THC cartridges.
We advise everyone to stay as far away from Bart carts as possible.
The law enforcement crackdown on illegitimate products prevents some THC oil cartridges with pesticides from entering the market. With fewer unlicensed products out there, it’s easier for THC cartridges to be regulated for safety.
Buyers can find the safest, highest-quality products by only purchasing cartridges from licensed sources. In legal states, dispensaries are the best choice for buying THC carts. Otherwise, researching which brands have quality-tested products is another way to find safer cartridges.
