Method 2:

Materials Needed:

Cannabis Concentrate
Mixing Container
Syringes With Needles Or Slim Metal Tips
Heating Element


Cannabis Concentrate: CO2 oil, live resin, shatter, distillate, sauce, and rosin. Shatter is widely used for preparing THC vape juice.


The thin characteristic of distillate makes it a perfect concentrate that can be vaped directly in a cartridge. If you want added flavor, you can add terpenes into the distillate.

If you have thin distillate, you can just begin with the refilling. You will need a metal tip so that you can do the THC vape juice injection process quickly.


CO2 is like distillate that can be added to the cartridge or pod if thin enough. Again, you may add terpenes for a twist of flavor then vape. Just keep in mind that adding terpenes or other ingredients can lower its strengths.

BHO Concentrates and Waxes:

Butane Honey Oil (BHO) concentrates like a crumble or shatter is a well-known type of concentrate that can be diluted to create an e-juice. Additional processes can help produce a better product.

Dewaxing the BHO can take out residual solvents and other unnecessary materials from the plant. Decarbing it can help in the crystallization in the cartridge. The process can improve its quality by making it smoother and avoid a clog.

About Diluent:

You can use different kinds of diluent to turn to shatter into an e-juice. There is a pre-made diluent that you can purchase or use a viscosity extract liquefier. Other diluents available include Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), Propylene Glycol (PG), Medium Chain Triglycerides and Fractionated Coconut oil.

About Terpenes:

Terpenes generally add flavors to your THC e-juice. You can have terpenes that are made from cannabis and others that are made from other ingredients. Cannabis-based terpenes are the best but hardly available.


Get a syringe that has a slim metal tip or needle in order to suck up the e-juice and transfer it to the vape cartridge easily.

Mixing Container:

You can use a shot glass for the preparation of the mixture.


Use a glass stirrer or a dab tool. You may also use a stainless steel stick.

Heating source:

It’s best to use a magnetic heating element.

Cartridge or Pod:

You can have a standard 510 threaded vape or a pod-style setup.

  • Heat the concentrate in the mixing container until it reaches the liquid state. Make sure to lower the temperature to about 315 Fahrenheit (156.67 Celsius) because terpenes and THC start to vaporize at that temperature.
  • Mix the terpenes and diluent into the liquid form of concentrate.
  • Place the e-juice into the syringe and transfer it into the cartridge or pod.
  • Start vaping,
