Fake Dank Vapes Step 2: @DANKVAPESOFFICIALACCOUNT should be on the box, not @DANKVAPESOFFICIAL
Now that you know if your packaging is new or not, the next step in spotting fake Dank Vapes carts is looking for the right Instagram account being labeled on the box. It’s a bit counter-intuitive, but @DANKVAPESOFFICIALACCOUNT is the real one and @DANKVAPESOFFICIAL is incorrect. The fake account is not even a real page and Instagram gives an error message if you go to it.
Check the side of the box for the correct Instagram username
This is very simple, you can tell by simply looking for is the right account listed on the box. Take a look at the photo below.
The top one is a real Dank Vapes cartridge box and the bottom one is a fake. Keep in mind this example is using the old version box, but you will still see companies putting the wrong account on new Dank carts boxes.
Fake Dank Vapes Step 3: Identify fake CCELL hardware
There is some dispute as to whether all real Dank Vapes use CCELLcartridges at all. Fake CCELL cartridges are a problem in itself across the industry, but we can assure one thing: If your Dank Vapes is using a fake CCELL, then it is for sure fake. Identifying if a fake CCELL hardware is being use would be the next step in telling your Dank Vapes is a fake.
Identify a fake CCELL with Dank Vapes packaging, and it’s a fake Dank Vapes cart
Fake CCELLs are surprisingly easy to catch, just check the logo on the bottom and compare it to the picture below. Got the stretched out CCELL lettering? Then your Dank Vapes is a fake.
The one on the left has clear printed, small text. The one on the right, the fake, has larger text that is not as finely printed. If your Dank Vapes carts have lettering like the one on the right, it’s a fake. If it’s like the one on the left, it still might be a fake because anyone can buy authentic CCELLs, but it is less likely. Additionally, a real CCELL with fake oil will still be better than a fake CCELL with fake oil.
CLEAR RING VS WHITE CERAMIC PLASTIC
Fake Dank Vapes Step 4: The real Dank carts have a press on clear top mouth piece, not screw in
The type of mouthpiece the cartridge uses will help determine if it is a real or fake Dank Vapes. Dank Vapes with a ceramic mouthpiece are fakes. You will not find any of those types of Dank Vapes carts shown on their official Instagram page. Dank Vapes only uses clear top, round mouthpieces on their cartridge hardware. Take a look at the mouthpiece pictured below. If you see a Dank Vapes with a different one, it’s a fake.
Here’s the things to look for in a Dank Vapes cart mouthpiece to determine if it is real:
- Round, circular top
- Does not screw in
- Does not pop off easily
- Not ceramic or metal
There are a lot of cheaper quality variations on the cartridge that Dank Vapes uses, so make sure to do those checks to see if it is real. Failing any one of the mouthpiece checks will ensure you have a fake Dank Vapes cartridge.
Fake Dank Vapes Step 5: Check for a thick core and If it’s too thick, it’s a fake
This one is easy to check on the internet, but hard to check if you are only looking at the fakes. If you are inspecting Dank Vapes before purchasing to determine if they are real you may want to have this part of the page open. Take a look at the picture below.
On the right side is the fake and you can see in the middle going down the cartridge, the core where the airflow goes through is considerably thicker. You will notice on the @DANKVAPESOFFICIALACCOUNT Instagram page the only cartridge type is that shown on the left.
Take a look at the gap between the inner and outer post in the above photo. In this one you can clearly see there is a sizable gap, where as in the fake on the right in the other photo has almost no gap. If you don’t have this page handy when checking out a possible purchase, make sure to look for the gap. No gap between the center post and side and it’s a fake.
Fake Dank Vapes Step 6, Fake Oil: Checking for diluted, thin or light colored oil, not just a bubble
The bubble test is not an accurate way to check for fake Dank Vapes cartridges, but thin, watery oil is a sign of a fake. Comments on YouTube and forums have stated that if there is a bubble it might be a fake, but we have debunked that. See the pic below.
As you can see this is a shot from the official Dank Vapes Instagram page, and there’s a bubble in the cartridge. Now that we have gotten past that false way to identify Fake Dank Vapes oil, we will show you the real way this step is done.
Thin, light, watery oil is nowhere to be found on the official Dank Vapes page
The type of oil found in Dank Vapes carts is of the darker variety. Not the dark orange look now found on Stiiizy pods, but a darker yellow. Light yellow oil like the cartridge pictured below is most likely going to be a fake.
You will see on the above cartridge there are plenty of air bubbles which is where the rumor came about that air bubbles means it is a fake. Do use air bubbles to try and identify if it is a thin oil or not, but do not based your opinion on whether the oil is fake solely on air bubbles, as you saw previously they can also happen on real Dank Vapes.
