Eureka Vapor announced in April 2017 that they have won “Best Concentrate of the Year” from CannaNews, a marijuana industry magazine. However, fake THC cartridges are everywhere, and Eureka Vapor is no exception to being counterfeited.

Eureka Vapor fakes are common

Due to the brand’s popularity, it is not surprising that a lot of counterfeit products of Eureka vape would be out in the market. For some, it could be really hard to tell the fakes from the real ones since they have the nearly the same packaging, but having the current version is key.

If you check online shopping sites for Eureka Vapor, you would encounter that a lot of these are fakes. A lot of suppliers based in China, would manufacture these Eureka vape empty cartridge with packaging. Scammers would fill them up with impure and hazardous oils.

So how can you tell the authentic Eureka Vapor from the counterfeits? One major red flag is luckily easy to spot…

If you’re buying ones with old packing, it’s very likely that they’re fake

Eureka Vapor’s has stopped distributing products in their clam shell packing over a year ago, but today you can still find some sellers who sell the old packaging and claim that they’re old stocks. If it’s in the clamshell packaging, it is a fake Eureka Vapor cart.

Other fake vape cartridges

Fakes are not only for Eureka carts. Fake cartridges are plaguing the cannabis industry. See our pages on fakes for the following cartridges:

A general way to check for fakes on a lot of cartridges is to look and see if they are using an authentic CCELL. If the brand uses CCELL hardware on their originals, check to see if your cart is a fake CCELL cartridge. Fake hardware is a whole other topic, but another issue currently in the industry. On the flower side of things there are even fake Pax 3s!

    • What about a white tear drop clamshell packaging? And what should the mouth piece look like? There is no type of writing on the underneath , only the eureka Symbol on the cartridge

      • I recently got some eureka cartridges that came in the same package you described but when I tried them they didn’t taste fake and the rooms would even smell like marijuana plus they had me high after 5 hits. By personal experience I would say that the cartridges sold to me in that package are not fake and I have tried fake vapes and they quickly be spot just by looking at the oil color and viscosity

        • I think the definition you have of fake is different.

          Basically most the “fakes” will have THC oil of some sort in them, they are just not from the real Eureka brand.

          It’s like getting fake Jordan’s. They are still shoes and fit on your feet, but most of the time they won’t be as good as the original and there really is no telling what is in it.

  1. What about a white tear drop clamshell packaging? And what should the mouth piece look like? There is no ccell or any type of writing on the underneath , only the eureka Symbol on the cartridge

  2. I am trying to determine whether a product someone is showing me is a legitimate Eureka product. The box looks just like the one on the far right in your pic above but the white label on the back is different; the label says as follows: Ingredients: Cannabis Oil, Terpenes MFG Date: 6/10/19, Pkg Date 6/13/19 Batch ID: EU19013OIND Distributor: Light Box Leasing Corp, Los Angeles, CA 90021 Manufacturer: Light Box Leasing Corp, Los Angeles, CA 90021. Can you tell from this info whether this a genuine Eureka product? Please let me know. Thank you.
