The Time We Have?

Typically, the range that you get with CBD is roughly about a year to two years max.

When you extract CBD compounds from the plant and turn it into oil, you increase your chances of preserving it because of all the additives to make it vape juice. If you want to learn how to make CBD vape juice yourself, visit what additives are in vape juice and vape juice.

When you burn it at high temperatures and for long periods of time, when you are taking a draw off your vape pen, your CBD or THC burns up and leaves it more degraded, best to use the full cartridge before being done. If not, be sure to put your lid back on such next time your vape cartridge is like you left it.

Your edibles can even be at risk if you have them in too much heat or the sun.

The heat and sun are the two main sources that can degrade your CBD; the other is time. Only time will tell how long your CBD will last.

If you take your vape pen everywhere with you, then when you leave your car, put it up, or take it with you, it’s going to degrade no matter what.

If you leave it in your car, then keep it in a cool place if you don’t want to take it with you.

  1. This is a great article, I had one CBD Vape Cartridge, and like you said I think it’s bad cause it’s a little chunky. I left it on a table in my living room where it gets a lot of sun. I think that the heat of the sun was not very good for it.
    Thank you for sharing this article. I think it’s time to get a new CBD Vape

    1. Lyne,
      We would like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us and we agree that it sounds like it is time to get a new CBD vape cartridge and if you wanted to get a new one just see which one you want here.


  2. Hey guys, thanks for sharing this post. I’m a complete newbie when it comes to CBD vaping and CBD cartridges. I didn’t know they could go bad in a year or two. Somehow, I thought these products are created to last longer. After reading your post here, I’ve got an idea of why and how CBD cartridges go bad. Also, I wanted to say thanks for including so much information such as how to tell if the cartridge is bad and how to store your CBD cartridges to preserve them longer. This is one useful post indeed! I’m sure others will think the same. Keep up the good work!

    1. Ivan,
      Well, we would like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us and we just want to share our knowledge and resources to fully understand how and when your CBD vape juice is going bad. Most people use it faster than they can keep it “that’s us”, for the most part, CBD cartridges are going to have a time frame on when you can use it just like anything else.


  3. As an infrequent vaper, I hadn’t given a lot of thought to spoilage or cartridges going bad. Some good tips and suggestions though so thanks for sharing.

    Cheers – Jason.

    1. Jason,
      Yes, we were the same way only because we used it faster than we could keep it so we didn’t have this issue, but some do hold on to their CBD vape pen and don’t vape as often as we do. So for the ones that do not vape often infrequent vapors then this is suitable for them and anyone that wants to gain more knowledge on CBD vape cartridges going bad thanks again for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us.


  4. Mathew & Deloris,

    I didn’t know that sun was bad for CBD, but now I do. I also didn’t know they could go bad, so I’ll have to pass this along to my friends that vape. I doubt they store them correctly, though in Alaska, I’m not sure how much they would cook under the sun up here. This is one of the summers where the sun has been in and out all summer, and there’s actually snow already on the mountains. Definitely not ready for winter yet!

    But, it’s good information to know for sure. Ingesting, or inhaling anything that’s gone bad can have serious consequences, so better to be safe rather than sorry.

    Thanks for sharing this!


    1. Katrina,
      We are glad that you shared your thoughts with us on how you did not know that the sun would damage your CBD or THC, in Alaska isn’t it 24-hour sun right now our son lives there and there is not nighttime for six months of the year. At night it looks like the sun is about the come up on the horizon and then it stays like that until 3 am and then comes back out fully Blasen. Thanks for stopping in again.


  5. These are some great tips and information regarding the usage and storage of vape cartridges. I hadn’t been aware of this before, but it makes total sense. As you said, everything has a shelf life and if you’re a person who is in to vaping you need to be mindful of this in order to have the best experience. Thank you for sharing your knowledge on this, very insightful post!

  7. I didn’t know that cbd cartridges could go bad. These tips are good to know and easy enough to follow. I have sometimes left my cbd oil in the sun, but only for a few seconds or perhaps a little under a minute. Does that also cause damage or is that still ok? Are there any vapes (brands) that have a longer shelf life or is it the same for all?

    1. Christine,
      thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us and if you leave your CBD in the sun for a second then this would be fine, and for other brands, if they use other ingredients it could cut the life span in half. Most CBD is done the same way so it is generally the same shelf life. I hope that we answered your questions in full, and if not then we will be more than happy to get you the right answer.


  8. Hey,

    IT’s funny I come across this article because my brother was only talking about his CBD cartridge the other day. I don’t think he knew that they could go bad, so he would be very interested in this article. I am going to share it with him and encourage him to comment. If he has any burning questions (which I am sure he will) I will advise him to get in touch.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.

    All the best,


    1. Tom,
      We like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us we are glad that your brother has questions we are more than willing to answer any questions he may have.


  9. Hi Mathew & Deloris,

    It’s good to know these tips about maximizing the lifespan of CBD cartridges, especially to keep them out of direct sunlight. Before reading your article, I don’t know the direct sunlight will be an issue. Now I understand. It seems that even the best quality vape pen has a shelf life, so we should all learn how to utilize our vape pen to the fullest.

    Thanks a lot for your information here. They are quite helpful. 🙂

    1. Matt,
      Thanks for stopping in and sharing, the quality of the vape juice does not matter it will go bad, and like you said we need to learn how to utilize our vape pen. This article will show you some great tricks that even pro vapors can benefit from, if there are any other questions that you may have please feel free to ask.
      If you want to see what other flavors there are please check them out here.


  10. Thank you guys for this informative post on how to store the vape. I think many people just don’t realise that it really matters how we store it. (I am not sure if I did realise that -;) )However, your tips are here useful and should help many people using vape. Do you have a special place yourself where you keep it? I assume some dark drawer (not too hot) should be sufficient, right? Cheers

    1. Julius,
      Hi there nice to see you here again, where you store your vape juice matters on how long it lasts and if you vape it fast you don’t have to worry except rotation. We keep our vape juice in the basement and in the pantry under a black towel so that way now light will not be hitting it. This is a good question lots of people store it in different places and it would be nice to hear where other people store vape juice ours is in the basement.
      Where do you store your vape juice?


  11. I always wondered what CBD cartridges were and how they’re used. To be honest I’ve never tried CBD oil, but I can certainly see the benefits from what I’ve read. It’s good to know the best way of storing them, as keeping the cartridges out of direct sunlight and heat can degrade them. Armed with this information buyers could certainly save money as well as disappointment!

    1. Kathy,
      you are right to save them a disappointment if they read this article and understand that CBD or THC does go bad and does not stay good forever. Educating yourself with this will save money and time if you did not know, we use CBD and THC ratios and did not know that they went bad I actually thought that it did not go bad one would think but no, it does go bad.


  12. hi mate,

    I have never used a vape so all of this information was very useful to me. I will be sure to pass this information on to my friends who vape regularly.

    Some great tips here as ever, so thanks for the heads up. It’s so important to store not just CBD, but everything correctly to avoid degradation over time. we all want to get the most out of what we purchase.

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Lee,
      we like to thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us and we are glad that this article can help out your friend we know that lots of people do not vape but there are other great products that others can utilize. The thought of just using one way to feel the effects of CBD are good, but you can be using so much more as edibles and tinctures as well.
      We hope to see you soon enough as to you getting the right information if you think we can change something up would be nice to have outside input.


  13. Hey guys, this is great information for everyone wondering if their cbd cartridges go bad or not. Personally, I have always wondered the same thing ever since I got myself one too. But now I feel like I am better informed.

    My cousin live in the desert and it gets extremely dry and hot there real fast. He often leaves his vape in the car sometimes and now after reading that sun exposure can degrade the cartridge, I am keen on sharing this useful information with him. Do you think it matters to put the vape pen in the fridge at all ?

    1. Sasha,
      We think that CBD has good effects in the fridge, but it is not recommended if you are going to store for a long time put in a dark cool spot and if this is for less than an hour, yes I don’t see it why not.
      thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts with us.


  14. Hey guys, this is a really great article on storing, preserving and replacing everything to do with CBD cartridges and vaping units. It makes sense reading this, everything is subject to oxidation and will go off as a consequence.
    Your article is very thorough on every aspect to consider and how to prevent further adverse health consequences and the vaping experience.
    Keep up the great work and information, regards John

    1. John,

    1. Thabo,
      We are glad that you enjoy our article and learned something new every day; this is great to pass it on. We live in a time where we want to source our own food and bottle or jar it up. Thanks for stopping in and starting your thoughts.
