1Match appears to be either completely fake, or a home-brew street brand. Information on this THC vape cartridge is extremely sketchy, and yet people keep asking about them online so we know they’re out there.

1Match carts are on the street big-time

It seems people are asking about them at least once a week.

Comments variously point out that 1Match carts are showing up in New York, North Carolina, New Jersey, so we’re guessing these float around in the east coast area. However, one of the festival shots below shows somebody with a bag with a California state flag graphic on it, so maybe they set up in California too, or that’s just a tourist.

1Match Concentrates appears fake, no known seller or source

Try to actually find this “1Match” company and you’ll run out of leads really fast! Best we found is this Instagram account. Note also that there’s flyers for appearances by this 1Match outfit at various festivals.

They also post pictures of booths set up at festivals:

We see underground festivals selling bunk carts all the time

We’ve even seen whole pop-up tent stores selling multiple fake THC cartridge brands before. So we’re definitely in fake cart territory here.

One dead giveaway of a fake brand: inconsistent packaging

The 1Match “brand” seems to change packaging with the seasons.

That’s a total of eight different package versions. If there were a real company behind 1Match, they’d be demonstrating a lot of confusion about how their branding should look.

1Match packaging includes online links

Note this package has the Instagram channel we mention above printed on the box.

Now here’s a different site printed on another packaging variant. The site at “www.1match.us” is a dead domain currently. So much for that lead.

How can 1Match be “lab tested”?

One more aggravating detail: The back panel of the package in that last photo has some test visible on the left. The text claims their product is “guaranteed” and “lab tested.” Presumably all proof of that disappeared with the vanished domain.

Please, do not let black market brands fool you! Every single one of them now claims to be “lab tested” everywhere, and yet in the ongoing vaping lung damage crisis there are currently 2.2K people hospitalized and 47 dead. They all didn’t just slip on a banana peel.

  1. Yes they sell them at a convenient store I bought one once and the guy called another guy out of a back room and pulled the cart out of a backpack and handed it to me it’s really sketchy the packaging always changes I’m concerned about the the potential spice that’s in them and I would also like to know how James know so much about the subject

  2. This is owned by akram alawdi and dhaker hassan…there both from bakersfield ca..they also sell spice and liquid spice ..there mixing the liquid spice into the match 1 cartridge thats why people say its strong they dont know what there smoking….so a while back akram alawdi got busted making these in a machanic shop..you can go look at the criminal case ….just go to kern county court and type akram alwdi and it will show up…so after this happened his partner dhaker hassan went to nyc they manufactor them there too in a basment in brooklyn and ditierbute it to all the arab stores in nyc nj nc…you can see akram alwadi in one of the pictures you have of them from instagram…i went to there instagram and warned people about what they do so they blocked me

  3. Some in NC at a smoke shop. Guy was pretty sketchy about it but I used my credit card to pay in the store…. tastes kinda strange makes my nose tickle but I’m to sketched out to even smoke it enough to see if it gets me high. Hope you guys can find something on this 1match bs.

  4. Yeah I also noticed that 1Match doesn’t have their site or web page on anymore you used to be able to see and read about the different kinds of strains and types and on the original packaging it used to state that it was THC OIL. Because I have some old boxes and some of the new ones because the corner store sells the vape pens and cartridges.

  5. They have these at a corner store in Syracuse NY where I might add carts are not legal but then again neither are loosies and they sell th too. Lol. But yea, people line up for them claiming they’re great but I’m skeptical. I’ve gotten some already and the first time seemed to leak or go way to fast. Also they don’t even offer what kind you want it’s just the luck of the draw.
