TKO Products makes TKO vapes and they are based out of California. Fake TKO carts are now everywhere, most likely outselling the real thing. Here we will go through the basics of identifying fake TKO cartridges and where to get the real thing.

Update January 5th, 2021: Spammers have descended on this post repeatedly posting the domain, which is a fake scam site that takes money and ships nothing. The real, and only remaining, TKO site is, which only makes edibles. Going forward, all TKO cartridge products are fake. Don’t fall for online scammers; our readers report getting scammed out of thousands of dollars!

Update June 20, 2019: The fake TKO company on Instagram, under the username _tkoextracts, recently posted results from Bella Costa Labs that were falsified.

Update July 27, 2019: Some have claimed that TKO is an East Coast brand in our comments section and this might be true. We are unable to confirm it because upon asking them via their Instagram account if they were fake or real, we were blocked. There exist more fake hardware TKO carts than anything else, so even if there is an East Coast brand, odds are whatever you are getting is fake and has no consistency with TKO products in other areas.

Not a disposable? It’s a Fake TKO cartridge

I just heard back from TKO products by email and they only make disposables now. This might be in response to the number of fakes out there. Basically any cartridge out there that is a stand-alone cart that needs a battery attached to it is a fake TKO cart. Fake cartridges have been a constant issue in the cannabis industry.

Here’s what real TKO carts look like

tko cartridge
Here’s a real TKO cart.
tko pineapple express
Real TKO vapes only come in this style.

All real TKO cartridges use the same disposable style pen. We emailed TKO Products, makers of TKO Extracts to confirm, and they said they no longer make any non-disposable vape carts.

Here are some examples of fake TKO cartridges

You will notice basically all the ones you see on the black market are fake. We personally have not yet seen the disposables even being sold outside of dispensaries, even though it may be happening somewhere.

So what are fake TKO cartridges? Anything TKO labeled vape cartridge that is not disposable is a fake.

The packaging below is 100% fake. It does not even use the same logo as the original TKO extracts.

The fake TKO carts use what appears to be a CCELL clone.

The fakers even offer 20 different flavors. Too bad TKO only offers four as of now.

Old TKO carts lurking

There might be some old stand-alone TKO cartridges lurking around, but there are few. Almost all that have been produced were fakes. All that continues to be produced now are fakes. The only real TKO cartridges are going to be in disposable form. TKO Products is based in California, so if you get them anywhere besides a legit CA dispensary, they might be fake too.

At this point, it is safe to say there are little to none of these old TKO cartridges in circulation.

Fake does not always mean bad

If you’ve seen our oil pen tests page, then you know many legit brands even come up for dirty oil. All carts you get on the street are not necessarily dirty or of low quality either. If your plug is using good oil and fake TKO vape hardware, it still might be a good overall vape cart. Fakes can also be awful, mixed with MCT oil or other not-so-great products.

Just keep in mind when you see the TKO brand in a stand-alone cartridge there is no “brand” and no consistency with that brand, unless its the same plug you got oil carts from before.

Frequently asked questions regarding TKO cartridges

Here we go through the most common TKO questions. Please post any additional questions below in our comments that are not covered here.

 What are TKO carts?

A TKO cart is a standalone piece of hardware made in China. It could be filled with any THC oil and there is no consistency in the final products produced for market. Currently the company behind real TKO cartidges no longer makes standalone carts, only disposable vape pens. Therefore, all TKO carts are fake.

What are Fake TKO carts?

Any standalone THC cartridge that requires a battery and has TKO markings on it is a fake TKO cart.

Who owns TKO Extracts?

TKO Extracts is a brand of TKO Products LLC, a California based Limited Liability Company owned by Avinx California LLC. According to the California Secretary of State’s website, TKO Products LLC is a subsidiary of Avinx California LLC. The Managing Member of TKO Products LLC and Avinx California LLC is Joseph P. Genova. Therefore, Joseph P. Genova is indirectly the owner of TKO Extracts.

How can you tell a fake TKO cart?

If it’s a standalone cartridge that requires a battery, it is a fake TKO cart.

Is TKO safe?

Authentic TKO Extracts products meet safety guidelines for the State of California. Fake TKO carts are not guaranteed to meet any quality standard.

Concluding our Fake TKO guide…

TKO looks like a legit supplier of cannabis products that unfortunately got ripped off. They even provide a Certificate of Analysis to prove their products are clean. I’d definitely take a real TKO disposable vape over any fake TKO carts. We’ll be doing a review on the real thing soon! For now, check out our current lists of best THC vape cartridges for California and Nevada.

What’s your experience with fake TKO carts? Are these floating around your area? Comment below or post in our forum!


  1. I just got a tko cart with the glass tip..took 2 hits and then immediately felt like shit, stay away from these carts smoke a blunt or just buy from the dispensary.

  2. Okay I just got a tko called ” Super Silver Haze and it’s a white tipped stativa came in a tube all looks , taste and I’m high af!! JS

  3. Just got a “HTFSE SAUCE” TKO cart. (Not disposable) so they’re still out here. Don’t see where it did much as far as a high. I have to be careful on them because my lungs are fragile.

  4. Stay away from them, they’re super fake and literally did nothing to me when I smoked it besides burn my throat. They have black tips and the ones I tried were called Girl Scout cookies. From what I’ve seen TKO doesn’t even make a GSC flavor, ppl fill these carts with all kinds of junk. You’re better off smoking weed or off a rig. It’s 2020 guys, mostly all black market carts have been counterfeited and if they’re new and become popular they’ll be counterfeited. Smoke a joint.

  5. Dude what do you mean by disposable.i get the TKO carts screw them on my pen and smoke. When the cart is empty I throw it out so yes its disposable, im cinfused or maybe just stoned ,how would a cart not be disposable? If it’s refillable? Idk what makes a TKO cart not disposable. Maybe you can answer that for me admin…

  6. Yeah but what some of us stoners fail to comprehend is that the real owner of tko built that brand.With his sweat and his Money 💰.. And I wouldn’t blame him if he felt ripped off. But some of us get it.

  7. I gor a black tip mimosa “TKO”TIP in VT and out of the cpl dozen I got I felt only one might have not been “up to snuff”. So I guess its a hit or miss. But good to know I wasnt crazy thinking something was up with them lol

  8. Im just not gonna buy them anymore. Small price to pay when the alternative is just smoking weed off a bong. Oil is usually a luxury product for me and I probably get more bang for my buck the old traditional way.

  9. Well, I was concerned. Then I read the comments. Now I’m stoned. What a shitty admit. You’re freaking people out unnecessarily dude.

    • There’s thousands of people flling these carts. Just because yours turned out good does not mean the rest. When I tried a fake TKO it did almost nothing.

  10. so I just bought a tko black tip cart with no battery called grape ape or something and I got another lemon flavor one and they are refillable ones so Im kinda sketched but came from a reliable source so I tried and and I’m high af lol so yea I mean what’s the worst that can happen?

  11. I get black tip tko’s and can day they are way better then the monopoly brand or danks brand of carts.

  12. I get the TKO Blacks in boxes without the pen attached. Therefore, they are stand alone carts. However, the blacks don’t make many flavors but I have had most. I have had the chocolope, strawnana, lemon cake, and king Louis, And all were great! The king Louis is personally my favorite because it taste like bud but if you’re going for a flavor then try the strawnana and the chocolope is very interesting. I have had no problem with smoking mine, and they are probably the most potent carts I’ve had. Thanks. Have a great day!

    • Thanks for commenting! But if they are not disposables, they are not actually TKO carts. But if your plug is using good oil….. still might be good

  13. They are not fakes….They are just 2 different companies. The logos are completely different, as well as the packaging. They are not copying, in fact I believe the black market ones are actually the originals. Black market, does not mean fake. Just make sure you have a legitimate connect, and check out what you buy. The TKO C-Cell Carts (1000MG) with the white tips & TKO engraved on the bottom of the cartridge, are FIRE. Ive had their Mango Gelato, Gushers, & right now toking on OG Cookies. All have been super thick, beautiful gold, amazing tasting STRONG High Quality oil…& I am a 20+ year smoker & extremely picky when it comes to extracts and oils.
    I have never seen the other brand with the disposable pens, so I cannot speak on them, but the white tip TKO Extracts are FIRE 🔥

    • Actually the original brand used to do regular carts as well. If you check out the logos, you can see that the “other brand” is a fake of the original. Plus TKO’s even if there is a real “black market brand” is flooded by 100 times more fakes of it on DH Gate etc. So the odds of anything even being a “real black market TKO” if there is one, which is also a fake of what TKO Products does, is almost none.

    • Yeah I just got some and the God father of is legit and I’m on the east coast has scan lab results sticked on two different spots on two separate seals

      • Was the tip clear cuz i have the same exact one now im worried i got a fake smh the oil is clear n so is the tip

        • yo same these are flooding my area right now. All of a sudden every cart has clear liquid and a clear tip as opposed to the old ones which were actually amber colored with black or white tips. no idea if these safe or completely trash they get me stoned but everyone always says theyre full of pesticides. Lab results could be easily faked but would someone filling fake carts even go to all that trouble anyway. so many questions about these things

          also low key feel like these things make my lungs shittier. That must me?

    • Man was about to post same thing u just said but don’t have to know. Og cookies white tip is by far the best 1 I’ve ever had. Fake company or not someone is doing something correct

  14. Yeah I’m in baltimore and there are a lot of black tip tko carts around but I bought one and it was definitely fire super thick but still like big cheffs and cali plug great taste .be high be safe buy fake lift weights
    ..thanks mike from Baltimore

  15. I got a cart sour tangie 1000mg and it has a white tip. I’m confused if it fake or not . When I turn it upside the down the oil moves very slow. I get really high off it but my bf doesn’t and I’m assuming bc he has a higher tolerance but I’m confused if this is real or not. I was told they came straight from the dispensary.

  16. So I’m confused I got some of the TKO carts that look like fakes but they have a QR code that when scanned gives you a report from this website I thought that was the fake company website?

    • So the only real TKO sells disposable vapes and is in CA. They stopped selling the standalone cartridges a long time ago. Anything after those old ones is fake. If you could possibly screenshot the lab results and post them on our forum here:

      We’ll verify that they are in fact real lab results. But it’s also important to note that there are “R&D” results and then “for the public results.”

      R&D tests are what black market companies can get and what any company can get by submitting the oil they select to the lab. The general, for the public results you would find on a legit brand like Select Elite are different in that the lab actually goes and picks up from Select Elite directly the items to be tested. These items are tested per batch, whereas R&D tests they could just do one test then give you whatever oil after.

  17. Cam i buy? I Live in you send ? Like to buy diferente flavors.thank you

  18. I have been smoking tko carts for the last 2 years if they have a off white tip and tko official engraved on the collar right above the threads. As far as I’m concerned they are real. I’m now on a liquid gold diet. Its good to keep things flexible . Variety is the spice of life.

  19. I got mango gelato from a reliable source here in MN bubble moves slow they seem good not like danks or exotics black tips non disposable seem real to me but who knows I guess I don’t feel sick so that’s a plus lol

  20. Also I do have the lab report from a standalone in the form of a four-page PDF if you would like to look further stupid

  21. This admin is so stupid its shameful. Everyone in the comments corrected you because your wrong but clearly your gonna stick to this. Maybe you work for another company … maybe your just a moron who got wrong info & didnt resource check enough. Either way your article was boring, non informative & said the same thing over & over. Print journalism is not for you, honestly not being rude but that sounded like in Middle School paper

  22. Who is the admin of this post? cause you’re really stupid if you think any TKO without a Disposable battery is fake

  23. I think you’re confusing TKO white market and TKO black market. I buy the Real TKO black market from their actual company. Not filled by someone who went on alibaba and bought counterfeit packaging and empty carts.This is how you verify quality no bullshit TKO black market. this is their site.

    The white market TKO is a totally different company with licensing in CA, and only in like two dispensaries. Matter of fact the Black market TKO Extracts company has been around longer than the White Market TKO. two bit Dealers saw the popularity of the black market brand and got Chinese producers to counterfeit the packaging and mail to their house and then they fill it with hotdog water distillate, and vitamin e acetate and god knows what. They did it out of greed, and like scamming people and do not care about hurting peoples lungs. On the Other HAND……

    ….The REAL TKO BLACK market brand is a really good product from the right source, and they can all be verified with the barcode that comes with every package, hologram cellophane, you can find everything here [LINK REMOVED]

        • It’s deleted it doesn’t get saved anywhere unless we restored the site to a previous version. But it literally redirected to a spam site.

          I am pretty sure he was trying to reference which is not a registered company, but instead he posted some spammy redirect site with a similar name. The real TKO items are made by – and they don’t even do standalone carts.

          Maybe someone is trying to take over the TKO name and making them from one place, but even on that site the Lab Results link is bad, then they reference grey tipped carts when they are white in their own picture.

          • Thanks for commenting and if there is any reality to it, it’s not a registered legit company on the east coast, while the west coast one is. Additionally, should the standalone ones be from a “single company” theoretically, they are so heavily faked there’s always way more likely than not any standalone cart is a fake.

  24. First,I appreciate your diligence in your fake cart research. I read often because I’m forced to use black market. I do have a question. Isn’t it possible that these “now” legitimate companies sold there previous “not legitimate” stock to the black market? Of course they couldn’t admit to it, thus deeming them “fake”. Where only the “regulations” are the difference between them.

    • Thanks for commenting! And yes sctually this has happened with some brands – Kushy Vape by Kushy Punch being one of them. However with TKO, the black market TKOs are a larger market share than the real company and the empties are available everywhere. I also spoke with someone directly at TKO and they said they only make disposables. So yes it happens – but I don’t think it has with TKO.

  25. Got a pack of TKO extracts 10 Extra strength 1mL cartridge
    OG PLATINUM and it’s great. I was walking back to the house from parking car across the street. As I’m walking I noticed it right there, i would of beeen stupid not to pick it up. There was nobody around. I walked with it til I got home (which wasn’t very far) once I got inside I opened it and I was like “WTF” Lol. It was epic. Of course I go online to see what they’re worth. I mean I do got ten of em why not sell some. Then I jumped into this…might be fake but the oil is fire my friends. I’m lucky here I know but still faded enough to write this comment. Cheers.

    • Thanks for commenting! and one thing to just consider is the hardware has not passed any quality testing. So while the oil might be good, the hardware itself might not be. Either way I hope yours work out fine!

  26. I have someone in my area that has BOXES of these. Bought 4 not knowing. Being someone who is consistently high all day, I hit on these ALL DAY LONG and felt nothing! So that’s was my first clue. The consistency was runny, the one cart had the labeling wrong and it was hard to get out of the package. I’m safe and healthy. Stupid choice I made to save $10….But thank goodness I found this page! THANK YOU!

  27. I got a black tip slow bubble cart with tko official at the bottom and the flavor is sherbert and it’s a hybrid

  28. So my guy (who buys from someone who claims to get their stuff from California dispensaries), just got a bunch of individual carts with a black tip (no TKO printed on cart though), would those possibly be fake? I’m a bit concerned now

  29. Just got a gushers flavored tko. Black tip with no pen attached. Is gushers a real tko flavor? It says EXTRA STRENGTH 100mg GUSHERS

    Says it’s a hybrid.

    Also I picked up a Lime OG indica

    They both taste and hit great 🤷‍♂️

  30. My dude and I have had a buying relationship for a good 6 years.. He went ham in CA three years ago and bought A LOT of the white tipped TKO standalone carts from reputable dispensaries and came home with them. He still has QUITE a few left, as most of us are flower smokers out here. I don’t doubt their validity, they taste amazing, thick as get out, packaging falls in line with TKOS old packaging.

  31. I bought a couple white tips here in Ohio my plug says he gets them from a dispensary in MI the bubble moves slow the taste is subtle but good not a lot of coughing at all packaging is in tact everything sealed a lot of professionalism put into providing a “fake” product. Idk I’ll update after I smoke for awhile high is good with a good head buzz and body buzz it’s a sour diesel so far I’m happy

  32. I just got a lemon tree one gram cart from a guy I just met a few weeks ago. Swear they get him high and are legit but they’re not disposable and I’m in mass. I buy dispensary carts and these two carts are harsh as F! Never had a dispo cart feel so harsh n not taste good. If I turn it upside down the bubble goes back n forth right away! I’ve never seen that in a good cart! It’s almost a thick version of gold water. Burns my throat burns after each pull. Seems to get me a lil stoned though. It’s a hybrid btw. One gram lemon tree. Harsh as F tho. Damn. Now I know y it was $25 for a gram when I pay double that for a half gram from a dispensary. If it wasn’t harsh I’d go w it. Now I feel like a jerk after bugging this kid to bring me in scary he claimed to be awesome n cheap n f the dispos. So I tried it. Now I’d rather give it back then spend the $25z but he was nice enough to bring it in. But if he knows they’re fake n making money y not make another sale. Now I feel dirty lol. If he had just said TKO I woulda ran the other way then shown him all the info I have on bunk carts. They only come in disposable versions w 4 different flavors only!!!!! ????????????????

    • Just bought a cart from my dude the bubble doesnt move fast like u talk about at all it seems thick it’s not on a battery I had to go buy a battery to use for it is it fake it’s also called lemon tree

  33. Just bought my first tko, also here in Rhode Island, try the white chowda! Standalone cart so definitely fake, which I’m totally at peace with. Th oil inside of it is extremely thick; the air bubble inside doesn’t move when you turn it upside down, or even when you shake it hard. The taste is good, not too strong, and no coughing unless you’re taking real bangers off of it. The high is enjoyable, nice head high with a bit of a body buzz. As this is my first cart I’m not too sure if they all taste similar or not, but with a consistent plug I’m excited to try ’em all. When it comes down to it, whether you’re grabbing flower or oil on the black market, you have to have a level of trust with whomever you associate. Our bags of buds weren’t and aren’t branded with anything and we we’re all happy still, right?

  34. Philadelphia, Pa found a cart on the ground out side of a Walgreens… it’s not a disposable and was hooked to a local dispensary’s battery. I switched the tip before hitting it! It tastes like black licorice and says tko in metal on the bottom.. not sure if it’s THC cuz I’m only brave enough to take one hit! Lol anyone know what this is ?

  35. Im in CT and i just bought my first tko off the streets. I usually go to the dispensary but my card ran out right before Christmas. After reading this i was right and should just stayed away. I have been questioned the tkos it doesnt say the thc percentage or anything relevant. Glad i read this. Ill just wait till i get my card back on Jan 6. And i am a flwoer smoker but carts are good for public.

  36. My tkc vile and mouth tip are disposable also its says on the box 10 extra strength 1ml. OG Cush. Pray real live in medical legal State.

  37. Boston here, tko user, tested at lab on nmr for acetate and formaldehyde etc, came up clean for what CDC claims is in bad ones, just glad I have access to a lab rat..

    • Does yours have a grey tip and TKO in metal at the bottom? I’m also in the boston area and worried mine could be a fake even though my friend got it from a medical dispensary…


  38. Fake tko cart here in Denver colorado, full gram charging $40 for this tko that has very loose oil and has no official logo at the bottom and plus it’s not a flavor on the tko site so yeah it’s some lemon pure flavor or something

  39. I recently bought the white mouth pieced one unknowing it’s a fake for $40. Durban Poison Sativa. First thought was that it wasn’t flavorful at all, then I started getting shortness of breath and thought it was cause I was playing an intense video game but it’s happened otherwise as well. Gonna throw it away and stick with herb. Sux to have thrown away $40 tho ????

    • Just a tip for anyone who does plan on buying street carts: If you plan on buying any cartridge you should be spending 25$-35$ dollars. Nothing more or less, but that’s buying from the street, not dispensaries. You will find this is the best price for good carts, including Dabwoods and TKO. TKO carts from where I come from are good and can get a daily smoker high in about 3 hits. I’ve found that my TKO carts last twice as long as my Dabwoods carts. Dabwoods obviously aren’t as popular as TKOs, but over all of my purchases and robbing plug experiences I’ve found I get real TKOs more times than I get real Dabwoods, so if anything, count on TKO carts, but research a little bit on YouTube for your own sake.

  40. All these “fake” carts I’ve been getting in Georgia are consistent with quality but after reading this I’m now scared.

  41. lots of fake tko carts here in rhode island . im the owner of a new business just getting started

    • I’m in RI a blueberry diesel fake and shit is so harsh!!!! Especially in one pen I have..ya have to unscrew the 510′ s a tiny bit for it to hit and WTF..hits the lungs and implodes..tastes good but thought it was me, or the pen..not sure now though.

  42. Yeah I’ve been using tkos for almost a year on and off, and when the grey tips came out in end of august they were too thin and tasted like straight junk, almost like pine sol. I’m in the CT area, but beginning of September I started using Cookies By high flyers and C21 which I highly recommend. Usually pay 30-35$ for tko carts here but most of them are shit. My guy still has black tips that are amazing but not worth it. Usually pay 40-45 for carts that are decent and it’s more $, but it saves ur life. Stop smoking this shit. Stay safe!

  43. Milwaukee, WI. I just looked it up off a hunch and mine is the same one in the picture. But it says 100% solvent free premium distilled OG Kush hybrid Extra strength.. am I going to die from this shit?!?

  44. Been buying from our guy and they all taste the same, on the TKO website they say the “real” cartridges only come in 4 flavors not 20 like we’ve been getting, and selling the 1000mg cartridges for $30.00 each, got 1 TKO cartridge out of all that we’ve gotten, a lot, that has the TKO Logo printed on the actual glass cartridge itself, I believe we’ve been smoking fakes here in Massachusetts, I’d love to know what you guys think, thx

  45. Fakes in MN. I am a rare user (mostly for migraines) and I was put in the ER with a double lung infection from fake tko. Idc about smell, I’m going back to flowers, like a caveman. Be safe and do the research.

  46. What does Fake cartridge cut with? I mean just because their fake TKO doesn’t mean they have been cut with harmful substances. Let’s get real here how many times has your weed man given you bunk shit lol. So does anyone know what oil their cut with? What strands they are using? ASKING FOR A FRIEND.

    • There’s no telling and nobody knows. It is possible they use good oil. But now the issue is heavy metal testing. Why doesn’t that dealer buy something like real CCELLs and fill them – thats what we would like to see.

  47. Boston ma here. Tko carts around. Probably fakes but the Blueberry Diesel and the Biscotti are pretty fire so i cross my fingers im doing no harm. Legal state. Vaping banned. Its gettin rediculous

  48. I get tko carts a few times a week from a guy that has the big box of 20 flavors and I’ve tried durban poison, gelato, of cookies, and I’ve really enjoyed them all. The buttons say tko official. My brother in law had some tko carts that didnt say tko official and his burnt the hell out of my nose and throat. I love mine though and continue to enjoy them

  49. Fakes here in San Antonio, dudes selling them for 35. Had smoked like 3 carts in a week or something and have been dealing with shortness of breath and nightly fevers for the last three nights. let’s just smoke weed like normal people from now on. i will comment again if i end up going to the hospital. stay safe out there fellow headies.

  50. I’ve been using Tko carts for a month, reliable guy has a box, no problems to report of knock on wood but I don’t think I will buy anymore

  51. Hi Friends

    I have been buying TKO from “my guy”. I’ve been feeling short of breath and congested lungs.
    I now realize they must be fake. Be careful out there what you buy of the steet.
    Here is a excerpt from an article on The Washington Post.

    On Sept. 27, CDC officials said most people in the outbreak used THC-containing products, or both THC-containing and nicotine-containing products.

  52. Two fakes here in NJ. tasted a bit weak. Not that good a buzz but it was after a 2 month layoff. From a big player. Supposedly. With all of these deaths this is not funny. I’m gonna have to make a phone call tomorrow. Let’s see what he says and if he’s a stand up guy. Will report back.

  53. Hickory, NC area .. fakes, guy allegeldly goes out of state, gets his script, then goes to some store and buys a bunch of these things. I have wondered if they were real or fake, but after reading this, i know now and i am pissed! Cant ever find real flower anymore, which is why i switched to the vape. This helps calm my nerves… where are we supposed to get legit stuff??

  54. Massachusetts south coast here. Fake TKO carts. 50 a pop. the quality is junk, you can taste its not THC and the high is decent but head aches are soon after..

    My guy was ripping me off for sure cuz he was gettin those boxes in bulk.

    • Yeah most definitely because they are 250 a whole 10 pack of carts. That’s 25 dollars a piece and I pay 30.

      • ever had a cart break from like lightly tossing it i dropped mine on my bed real shit and it broke and multiple others in a box of 10 did as well i usually never had a problem with these carts but now i do for sure losing money here gotta keep my lights on lmao

    • Oh shute im from southcoast too i paid 50 for 2 its decent quality but yea for sure its a straight rip off out here in new bedford

    • I live in Lowell, ma. They $20 a piece and $180 for a box of 10. Same consistency for 2 years now, same taste on all the flavors.

  55. Call them “fakes” if you will but the TKO carts I’ve gotten in the past were good and just popped up again the other week with some Blueberry Disel(one of the best tasting carts I’ve tried), Biscotti, and Gelato. If I’ve been getting them from someone making them elsewhere they’ve been doing a pretty good job. I plan on grabbing a few more today if I have the chance.

    • I’ve come across these also but my concern is the ingredients are not regulated.
      They are reporting illnesses from vaping products and these unregulated products could be the reason.

    • Big facts you can hate on the “fake” carts but it seems like two different companies two different logos not saying the individuals aren’t fake but if you getting from the right person they’re prolly even better than the “real” thing.

  56. Just realized reading this that ive been getting fake tko carts. But they’ve always worked and ive never had any issues. Knock on wood. But ive got a trusted guy who always gets reliable stuff. ????????‍♀️

  57. NE Ohio..i looked mine up bc it has ????????tiiiineee bubbles????????in cart…i have a zingy buzz…praying for my lungs..fake? Not good to read i smoking fake…sooo…whats up with the bubbles????????????????

      • Generally they can be laced with poisonous chemicals. It’s rare in most areas to find these poisoned carts but make sure your plug is reliable and more publicly known. Stay safe.

    • That is by far my favorite flavor. If they are fakes they are some damn good fakes. I can tell when someone is using things other than THC by the feeling but with TKO’s I’ve never had that like with street carts but then again I know my connect. Don’t buy off of the street. The one time I did it was bad.

  58. I got one today and didn’t even think to ask if it was real or not. My wife however asked me. We’ve had some of it, it has a strong weed taste, like smoking a bowl. Almost taste like weed smells. I know that’s a strange description. N. FL btw

    • Fake boxes in mass for about a year now. Also htfso sauce plastic tko containers all black. Although haven’t got sick. Decent oil.

      • Yeah those sauce ones were honestly dank, still believe that there is a “real” fake TKO company in Boston.

    • For sure these tko’s are two different brands I know mine are safe here in boston. My guy is trusted 26 yrs. Selling. If all of you are scared just buy flower. I know my tko’s are legit.

  59. Just got a black tip sherbert TKO here in NC, didn’t think anything of it but after reading all of this idk how to feel.

    • Like they said, fake doesn’t always mean bad. If you trust your people to do right by you, there’s no reason to treat this situation any different.
      I have a Sherbet cart as well as a Terp Sauce one. Both are just fine.
      “Let the buyer beware.” is the oldest rule in the book.

  60. So we have fakes here in Pa as well. However the ones that I’ve been getting recently have been very good! Like the article says “fake doesn’t mean bad”. Usually it means they’re garbage but the ones I’ve been getting have been very good quality.

  61. Fake TKOs in Ut also rover, golden gorilla and flavors. Basically no carts are legit. Dispensarys sell half Gs for more than you pay for a full G in an illegal state. Fake. Doesn’t mean they arent good. Find someone you trust who fills them but dont count on legit ones unless you see them made legit.

  62. Here in West Virginia and in the city of Fairmont. A guy is selling different TKO cartridges with flavors not being made directly from TKO. SEVENTY BUCKS AND ITS A FAKE. Why does someone want to hurt others with Fakes. The answer Money. Sad. Just a warning WV.

    • There are a lot of fakes in NC. All
      White and Black tips are fake. It should be a greyish-offwhite tip with a black ring under it. Then it should have “TKO Official” written on the underside of the cartridge. It’s 10-pack box should also come wrapped in UV holographic plastic that says “TKO” all over.

      • Reply to Alex on Sept. 17 –

        If you have ‘TKO Official’ on the bottom of the cartridge, it is FAKE.

        Also, TKO does not sell 10-pack boxes. On Ebay, you can buy empty boxes with the fake logo and fake flavors already printed on the box. They are made in China.

        Basically, anyone with a Zkittles, or Cookies, or Gushers, or Grand Daddy Purp, or Chemdawg, or Melonade – these are ALL fakes.

        Just because it has a cool label and comes in a nice box and a nice little tube does not mean it’s real.

  63. Just bought a fake Durban Poison TKO cart w black tip yesterday. Hit it twice, coughed at first but felt great high after, but then was fevery all night. Might just be allergies/illness, but the timing coincidence doesnt have me feeling great about hitting again w all this shit going on.

  64. Found some in ks! I have had them before never felt sick , great high. But still seconding guessing. Sadly I just bought one before reading this article. Any suggestion?

  65. Found the fake ones in Hot Springs, AR today. Wish I could tell if mine has embalming fluid in them. Not too keen on smoking sherm…

  66. I’m in Idaho and it turns out my TKO carts are fake too. For sure. I’ve been using them for a few months and I feel ok but who knows. This sucks cuz I JUST bought several more, and fronted for a friend too… great.

  67. So, after checking my cart…IT IS 100% FAKE TKO.
    However, does that necessarily mean its bad and/or lethal??
    It’s a dark golden color, very thick (it actually gets clogged if it sets too long) & it doesn’t run at all when it’s held upside down.
    I just HATE to throw these in the trash when they could be totally fine to vape. They do give a good high with only 4 hits.
    I gave $50 bucks for each cart & I bought 2.
    I also use the vape pen stick with a battery to smoke them.
    I figure if they’re the right color, a thick consistency & give a good high they must have the real stuff in them. Just fake labels.????‍♀️????‍♀️

      • Big facts stop complaining your not getting real if it isn’t froma dispensary no matter what company it is unless someone got it from the dispensary for you.

  68. I am smoking the TKO Extracts that came in that white box with the black tips. They taste fine and have that golden color. They look legit but after reading this article and seeing these comments, I am starting to doubt them. I also bought them for like $30 bucks and the guy said they were legit. Who knows if he was lieing.

    • yes. i finally got with the times and bought myself a weed pen. twice ive gotten TKO cartridges and they look legit and get me stoned as fuck. its fake ?? I have blueberry diesel tko cart 1000 mgs with a black tip. it screws onto a device which i charge. is it fake?? im going to have to shatter an eye socket i guess

      • Its real THC oil very likely, but most likely the hardware is poor quality. The only real TKO brand that meets all the CA testing standards does disposables.

  69. The fakes are in the Nashville Tn area right now…. I always research before I buy a cart I’m not familiar with.. I’m not smoking the fake shit… that’s pointless……. point blank.. thank u for having our backs an letting us know what the real from the fake look like.

  70. My boy gets the Real TKOs from a supplier in Maine. The oil is thick and beautifully golden and gets me stoned after 2-3 rips. I love the TKO he gets. The have the black mouthpiece and TKO on the bottom part of cart not on the side.

  71. Just picked up a TKO cart, its gelato flavored. Black tip, has TKO engraved horizontally on the bottom part. My plug says they are legit, but after reading this, I am second guessing him.

  72. Is there anyone who can get this knock off TKO cartridges tested since there are plenty of us out there smoking them. If we have a little proof it could ease or minds and maybe get this company shut down? Sounds ridiculous since we’re buying illegal products but I think this is a serious enough issue.

    • There is no company just some asshole plugs that would sell anything to make a dollar I hope they choke on every dollar they make off these fakes

  73. Just happened to get my first and second TKOs from two different people consecutively. Noticed the new one didn’t have their logo on the cart, so I compared the vials they came in. Though the printed part was identical, I noticed the one with no logo’s vial was a little longer. LOL don’t know why I’m bothering to share this, but whatevs. I kind of assume most if not all carts are fake up here in Minneapolis, MN. I don’t wake up with coughing fits anymore after switching from plant smoking a year or so any more (all day regular user. 2-3 eights or 2 carts a week)

    • i am also from Minneapolis MN and i’m currently trying to figure out if mine is fake or not! Mine does not have a logo on the actual cartridge, has a black tip and it’s biscotti flavor. i don’t want to smoke it if it’s fake.

  74. So i have been feeling some pain and decided to check it out, not realizing TKO was a commonly faked brand. Not using them anymore but I’m kind of freaking out. Will time ride this out?

  75. So I got a white tip Tko cart (which apparently is fake) but it’s taken me literally 5 months to go through a cart just hitting it every now and then. Say there actually is the bad shit in it that’s giving all the people lung issues, I’m not smoking as much as them right?

  76. I have been using fake TKO carts for 6 months and didn’t know it, but I have had no issues. Does anyone know if the fake carts have vitamin e in them? I am trying to figure out what ingredients are in the carts I use.

  77. Honestly I’ve tried many brands fake or not I am unsure but recently I have had some of these side effects of fakes. Chest pains from my last Dank which was uncharacteristic from previous times. Had me shook. Woke up from a nap and immediately had chest pains that made me freeze and and gave extreme trouble breathing for a moment. The chest pains happened twice including the one mentioned. I now have a black market TKO with no issues but immediately disposed of my Dank product as it’s flavored and tasted like detergent or some sort. This TKO is good but is it worth it?

    • Oh damn, that ‘tasted like detergent’ bit resonated with me my dude, I have definitely gotten one of those Danks as well. I remember looking at it and thinking it tasted like laundry soap smells.

  78. Today’s news about cannabis oils being mixed with Vitamin E is seriously disturbing as lungs cannot process gunk- only gases. This recent testing explains these recent deaths and the tests are all found in cannabis carts, mostly from New York.( MA is right next door and its legal there). And vitamin E is not a gas when heated. Trying to find out anything about this as I’ve bought 7 TKO carts for $40 each in western MA, I’m sure they are fake but smooth and definitely do the trick. Anyone know if vitamin E is standard for plugs or any information would be helpful.

  79. So I bought one today and doesn’t have the ccell ca# or the K logo on the bottom? Does that mean it’s fake? I’ve always thought if it didn’t have those logos its fake

  80. I’ve only had Fake TKO carts for a little over 3 months now, and I loved them my plug was giving them to me for $20 a pop and had many flavors I actually stopped smoking regular bud all together, im 22, 5’10 154 pounds and never really get sick like its been years since I last got real sick, and I’m not 100% sure the fake carts caused it but at the end of the 3 months I had real bad chest pains, loss of breath, loss of appetite, nausea, vomitting, headaches and decided to go to the hospital after 3 days of it only getting worse and got diagnosed with Pneumonia for the first time in my life, so I guess moral of the story is not everyone reacts to these fakes the same way but you need to be careful with your health. Also side note i dont have asthma and always have had healthy lungs played football, and was on the wrestling team all 4 years of HS so just giving an example of what you can expect by taking the risk and vaping these fake carts.

    • All tko is a company that makes packaging an c-cell cartridges any oil inside any cart is gonna be a gamble as to where the person is out sourcing there oil from tko is just a cart drive an packing name just like dank vape all they own is the packing they all out source there oil either from private extractors or from large processing favilitys

      • Wrong. TKO products has a website, they only sell disposable pens now to prevent counterfeits, they are 100% a legit company selling actual edibles, vapes and such. But they only do business in Cali.

  81. My friend had banana kush cart’s outa that 10pk., 1st time we ever heard about this brand here in the bootheal of the dirty-southwest “NEW” Mexico,its legit!!!!

  82. With all this fake vape stuff going around it’s time to legalize everywhere it’s hella ridiculous that what’s legal in California can get you put in prison in Texas and put into an ICU in Wisconsin LEGALIZE NOW Vote for Bernie Sanders for President

  83. I get them here in Ohio for 30 a pop and they all seem to be really good quality but my plug is super legit and all his previous stuff came w some kiler oil that taste great even tho the hardware was “fake” I was getting cookies brand and Mario’s . He also had some actually Rove brand from Cali a long long time ago those were fu**ing amazing best cart by far and im almost 100% they were legit they came in the push out boxes w the stickers sealing them and they all had manufacturer dates batch # package dates and expiration dat s as well as full cannabinoid profile listing THC %/mg CBD%/mg and total can %/mg and nt wt. They were great but they went fast and haven’t seen any since u suspect because they can prolly be tracked fairly easy w all those numbers someone doesnt wana risk it what I concluded. There are also dankvapes and exotic carts I’ve also seen king pens and brass knuckles but they are all really bad and they oil always made me sick and have me terrible headaches esp the dank there were so many diffent danks arpund w diffent hardware and diffent lookin ccell logos w 3 digit numbers w white o rigs and huge ceneter tubes those were def the worst when u pour them out they only had a half gram in them total bs!!! the 4 digit ones were more legit w better quality oil but who really knows whats what any more… that’s my year and half exp withe vapes….

  84. In western mass. Fake TKO carts everywhere. That and Exotics something another. The Exotic ones are horrible it tastes like you blowing a bouquet. It’s so horrible. I brought it back to my plug and no. I then went to a different plug and was able to get a TKO for $35 of chemdawg I really liked it. Even though it was a fake TKO I do believe that the product was far superior for the price. Having a lot of medical conditions I’m very hyper sensitive to chemicals I didn’t have any problems with the chemdawg TKO carts. I would love to be able to score these for $20 each however the only connects that I got are between 30 to $40 each. The TKO run 35 to $40 each. The dispensaries are selling the one gram parts for $100 each.

    • i live in KY and get ‘fake’ tko carts all the time for 25 a pc and they are by far the best quality I’ve had, as far as oil and hardware goes, maybe I’m just lucky but they are really great in my opinion. No noticable side effect whatsoever aside from getting very high lol

  85. Look I understand the fakes can get you really high and you might not care if they are mixed with anything but the fact is that new study show huge cancer tumors on people from fake dab carts.

  86. Just bought two fake tko carts and cake here to see if they’re real or not, sending them to a lab to be tested smh

  87. Here in Ohio in the land of misfit carts,We get a little of everything we get Danks,Moonrocks,Cookies,Kingpens,and TKO’s maybe I’m a bit paranoid but I assume they’re all fake some are just better than others.Recently the TKO and Kingpen seemed to be of better quality than most. But I feel like it’s a gamble every time I pick a new one up of any brand.

  88. I have a king pen that I got it’s in a sealed box even has an expiration date printed on it is it real? Fancy packaging there’s a plastic tube inside the box the cart also has the correct printing on it as far as I know thanks

    • I bought 10 of these for $300 they were all just like you explained. Although the packaging is all legit, they still proved to be fakes. The carts were almost all already leaking before use. Also, the oil was VERY runny. Another sign that they were fake. I took one hit and started to feel a headache nearly 10 minutes after.

  89. I have encountered these fakes before. And I can 100% vouch that they are indeed fake and not even good ones. The cart took several and by several I mean like 5 hits to get even close to the level of high a king pen offers in 1 hit. Good thing I only paid $20 streetprice. Plugs out here fucking people selling carts for $60/70. Had poor taste that did not correspond with the flavor and left a chemical/bad taste in your throught and lungs. Didn’t even make me cough when I hit it till my battery light went off on preheat mode.

  90. Mass they are everywhere .. I prefer the TKO compared to others that are around. Taste like chemical sometimes which worries me of course..

    • I live in mass to and I’ve got some dank carts and tko carts the tkos seemed good but the dank ones where gross

  91. They say fake but I’m here to say bssss I feel like the “real ones” are a fake and a partner on that company expanded off and did his own this because it probaley his method and their money and changed the name a bit and stated a newly ????% better TKO because the “fake ones” are the best damn cleanest most potent most amazing cart I’ve smoked and I’m far from a rookie def not my first rodeo and yeah but hey I donno shit lol I’m just high asf from
    The GDP indica “fake” cart ????‍♂️????????????

  92. The real TKO vape cartridges use premium terpenes and are blended in cold-ethanol distillate, and they come in the form of simple slim black disposable pens, specifically CCELL disposable pens. They currently offer four flavors:

    Pineapple Express: A Sativa-heavy Hybrid that includes Myrcene, Alpha-Pinene, and Beta-Caryophyllene terpenes. It has a total of 86.53% THC and a total of 89.50% cannabinoids.

    Rich Gelato: It contains a total of 86.67% THC and a total of 91.06% cannabinoids.

    Northern Lights: It contains a total of 86.39% THC and a total of 91.44% cannabinoids.

    Rose Gold: It contains a total of 84.02% THC and a total of 89.49% cannabinoids.

  93. Just scored an OG Cookies for 40 around Dayton if it’s fake I’d like to see the real! Awesome long lasting buzz. Highly recommend

  94. I’ve spoken to someone who makes them. They are an east coast hardware company. As long as the plug uses good oil your fine. Snagged mine at 20 a pop.

  95. If they’re fake is there any concern that these may not be genuine thc? Is there a chance these could be mixed with anything else? Just got one from Philly, haven’t used it yet. A little paranoid now lol ????

    • Yes a lot of the fakes are mixed with eJuice, some have had other stuff in them that are not good

      but some have been straight distillate too

  96. Believe it or not the guy I’ve been buying from has these fake carts but I don’t get it if they are fake how do they still get me high? It’s so weird

  97. I only seen tko carts sold n the fake package. They are good but doesn’t last nearly as long as ginger dank or my fave WDC. I usually get a headache with some tko carts but they do get u lit.

  98. Tko are fake looking for good carts add despicabledabz on Instagram he has ogkrx from California they are way better tasting and less harsh then any “tko” I’ve had

  99. Lol just learned that the “fake” tko I’ve been getting are not the real thing well they’re better then any carts I’ve had and never even seen the disposable or heard about them till I clicked this link. Crazy how everyone I know knows of the 10 pack white boxes not the singular disposable

    • Too bad Ohio rocking right now, tko’s “real carts” ion know what this article about but fake carts don’t display pure distillate, they are real people, I’m gettin for 15 pop

      • *also in TX

        & in comparison to other stuff I’ve paid for here it’s worth it. I got sour tangie since I’m already familiar with it and it definitely tastes and feels like it. It’s a fake TKO. Before now was getting fake Cookies but the strain matched what they said as well & it was worth the price. (60/1 or 50 each for 2+).

  100. I have tried two different “fake ones” Biscotti, and lemon drop. There was an immediate red flag, by way of not having the potency labeled on it. I’ve only been to the dispensary once personally, when I visited Colorado. Every one I bought and or looked at had the percentages on each individual packaging. I’m not sure if that’s an accurate way to tell, but it seems like it should be required for a legit one. That being said, they were both very good products. A few of us had a smoke session over the course of a few days. We also had some of the “Dank” brand. Happy with both. Do you have info on that particular brand as well? Thanks

  101. Just dropped one off a saice cart for testing at mcr. Not my first drop off and they have always come back clean and high potency. No issues here.

  102. Just picked up cookies from a trusted conneck..50$ I’m in VA.. it is a little harsh but strong..I have what I consider to be a high tolerance as I only smoke concentrate, at least.5g a day, only get carts for work..will let u know how it goes

  103. Been smoking TKO for a while now. Am smoking forbidden fruit right now and I’ll tell you 3 hits in and I’m buzzing. The ones I get come from Mass at a dispensary. Look like the fake ones but I got at 2 different dispensaries. So if they are fake they are damn good. Have gotten for friends and they love them too. The oil is very light in color some even clear. Love them

  104. Lol 30$ a gram isn’t a bad price on oil that works like medicine. Plenty of people grow flower that is just as good as the dispensary and no ones calling that fake. And getting sick from smoking them sounds like K2 and withdraw from the chemicals so I wouldn’t advise buying them unless you know the source they are coming from. It’s all about making money. Simple so of course there’s always gonna be knock offs but it doesn’t mean it’s not good distillate that was being loaded into the carts.

  105. Yeah, I just ran across one. The oil isn’t dark, I can smell the potency as soon as I opened the canister. I’m not complaining as of yet.

    • Its all about your plug – if they are good, the fakes might be good!

      Still probably any of them wont be as good as tested legit CA stuff, but still better than nothing!

  106. Well well. Carts ade gone in cc. Tx. Dank spread fast and hard draining everyone $40-60 a cart. So now heres tko. Its 4 am and i just hit my pen 3 times for the 3rd time since 130 and im totally smashed and mh beautiful ole lady just crashed. The drive back from our plugs was smokey with 2 hits each and a laughing erotic all over the road kinda drive. So my comment since im broke and just bought a Benz and headed to colorado is why doesnt someone that has a little money to spare take these carts to a lab for testing and see if its legit? My cart sats 100% solvent free extra strength 1000mg jybrid blueberry diesel

    • MO as well, lmao $40. Sour tangie, and Candyland. It smells like a fake vape I have got from the same guy before. Don’t really need any more issues than what I have, but my guy trusts his. Scary.

  107. I’ve had a lot of “fakes” and they have the best oil outta any cart i have ever seen and/or tried, better than most i get at the dispensary in PA

  108. Jimmy what do you mean funny tasting one….
    Been using for a while and like but feel it’s at my health cost…
    This last one tast funny even a after taste…
    Thought it was just a good cart flavor but not sure…
    Any thoughts???

  109. I think I see a old cartridge (blueberry diesel) the bottom of the cart is engraved TKO in the metal. or I just seen a new fake one. lol

  110. I got fakes in Chicago area, and it has caused a lung infection. Be careful, this is not fun. Been to urgent care and ER, all tests negative, but causes flu like symptoms ( fever, chills, aches, no appetite) Heart rate stuck at 120bpm, resp rate 22 (avg 16). The one that did me over was cookies. I could tell while smoking it, it made my lungs hurt almost instantly and that night was instant flu symptoms. It has been 6 days and no light at the end of the tunnel yet, only worse.

  111. I just seen online where i can order these “fakes” from a medical dispensary 30 miles from my house. Quit spreading false information.

  112. Ive smoked about 10 of these fake ones, but still good product.Im in NC and there $50 bucks each!We were getting Dank brand but now tko is all thats around.

  113. Have “fakes” all around Arkansas but I get high and I have a VERY high tolerance! I’m always happy with mine.

  114. Gone through at least 40 of these here in MA in the past year, no problems at all. Black tip, half g. Box of ten carts = 350

  115. Got hooked up for my birthday earlier this month with one of these “fakes” and let the guy recommend the flavor, ended up w mango gelato, got a hell of a deal on the full gram cart, partly cuZ I did play the “it’s my birthday” card, lol but either way, fake or real I’m very happy with my purchase and intend to get more when I’m done with this one!

  116. I’m vaping one of those “fakes” right now. Mango Gelato. We get “fakes” all the time. They’re always good though. This is the first TKO brand I’ve had. Definitely one of the “fakes”. I’m in NC, and I’m fucking stoned as fuck right now. We get multiple brands of “fakes”, and they’re probably better than what the guys in legal states get. I know they’re “fakes” because I look them up, just like I did with this one. I’ve noticed the black market tends to out do the legal market in most aspects. It almost worries me, if we ever legalize here, that we might lose quality in our products.

    • You have a very good supplier. I FINALLY got to try a fake TKO the other day. I had a Cannavative cart with me and we tested side by side. The Cannavative cart blew it away. It 100% just depends on your supplier when it comes to carts like this.

  117. I’ve smoked three out of the ten I bought in one of those boxes and I’ve had a fever for two weeks and the doctors don’t know why. Started after I finished the second one. Could be unrelated but wanted to share.

    • I am at a fever for a week now, with flu like symptoms. Caused from one of these fakes. Have you gotten any better??

  118. That’s all I get is the “fake” ones here in MA. They look like the ones pictured above. Never had a weird tasting one, all seem to come with the same amount of oil and of good quality. Paying anywhere from as low as 20 all the way to 40 for a 1g cart

  119. I just bought a TKO Extracts cart an hour ago..Biscotti is the flavor/strain. After reading this I’m guessing I bought a fake ????????‍♂️????????‍♂️..

  120. I’m shocked this article is even still up. Admin, you’re a fucking idiot. TKO Extracts is a black market company that has existed for YEARS, back when these cali fucknuggets were just making brownies. They have 6000 followers on Instagram…East Coast tko has over 40,000, and that’s WITH getting deleted every few months. You don’t know shit. Get hip or go home, you fuckin square.

    • A question was submitted to them if they are a real cartridge or a hardware company and they blocked the account. Should there be a real brand, at this point most are fakes either way due to the amount of fake hardware out there. It should also be noted that they faked lab results from Bella Costa Labs, the TKO that has the more popular IG account.

      We will update the post to reflect that there may be a real company out there, but there are much more fakes out there than real no doubt. Even based on the variants in comments of people saying it is good or bad there is no consistency. Thanks for commenting.

  121. Keep coming across them in CT….$40 each, obviously there’s gonna be a markup from $25 since we arent legal yet. Comes in Forbidden Fruit, Cookies, Sour Diesel and Banana Kush. Taste’s good….just got yesterday. I had already read this before I purchased so I know the deal and hope for the best. Just went to MA dispensary and paid about $70 (tax incl) for .5 of “Lemon Ice” which looked 1/4 empty already and was almost empty in 3 days of very slow puffing, nothing crazy! Who wouldnt try $40 or $25 carts just for the chance they’re good….I’ve never gotten a “TKO cart” that had fake oil or a formaldehyde taste….seems to give a pretty good high…I just pray I’m not ingesting that will hurt me too bad. Is there a way to Post pics here?

  122. Texas $50 some taste okay, then you get the ones that taste like formaldehyde. Not good at all when you wasted that much money and can’t stand the taste.

  123. When they first started circulating they were disposable. If you’re buying them in states that aren’t legal and they’re disposable don’t worry they aren’t fake. ???????? Classic example of “you can’t believe everything you read”.

  124. Dank Vapes® business model is pure genius.
    Dank Vapes® isn’t interested in selling carts.
    The authentic Dank Vapes® empty boxes for packaging IS the product.
    That’s what they make their $$$ on.
    They’ve essentially become a brand recognized package manufacturing concern for counterfeit products inside

  125. I just purchased two in Florida that were CCell. So far no issues. Seems to be working for me just don’t know the percentage of thc I’m taking in

  126. hey glad i read this. this dude in Los angeles is selling grams carts for 25 and have thousands of them, they are definitely fake.

      • Exactly so why argue in circles, the fakes can be just as good if not better just depends on the chef mate

        • There’s no arguing… at least from us but people in the comments may. The purpose of the article is just to inform people it’s not a real brand and expect no consistency. Basically it’s just hardware but some people still think there will be some consistency to the brand. They find this post and then they know there is not, it is only the plug that may or may not be consistent.

          • The reason that people think this is because they believe anything they buy in some Mass. dispensary must be real. Well it ain’t folks.

        • Because the fakes make people sick. There are multiple replies in this thread with people having health problems from them. Including me. I don’t smoke anything- no cigs, no flower.. I tried cookies a week ago and instantly my lungs were very painful and flu symptoms. Fever for a week, and been to the ER. Doctors can’t find anything wrong with me either, just treating symptoms..

          That is why this argument is very valid.

  127. There is a solid line of fakes out there sometimes it’s just takes a good chef and you have a good product regardless of the name on the box or the address it was made

  128. Well, the people that are making the fake ones seem to have a better quality THC cartridge than the legit ones.

    • Bud ….. It’s entirely possible but since there is no such thing as a “real” one … it really doesn’t matter.

  129. $25/1g in Massachusetts, here… And I have no complaints on the price or the quality. I am also not a patient, and have been relatively haphazard for most of my life in terms of what I ingest.
    Also, for what it’s worth, I’ve never had an issue with any of the hardware, ever. Smooth hits til the last drop.
    I’ll pay $25 til I’m not happy with the product.

  130. Hi i’m having a bad experience with my cartridge it won’t burn I’ve tried different batteries I don’t know what to do it’s working I don’t have the receipt anymore so I can’t take it back and I really use it for my pain in my back

  131. Fakes in nc foothills too but ive not hqd any probs outta mine. My plug was up front about it. I’ve enjoyed the high from these and will continue to buy.

  132. Yo,

    I’ve had a bunch of what I GUESS are fake tko carts.. lemontree, skittles, etc.. but the best BY FAR has been the Lime OG cart. It has almost a psychedelic type high, similar to what strawberry cough or sensei star would give me from a huge bong RIP when my tolerance was much lower.. this is the ONLY cart that gives me this effect, which makes me wonder, what’s so different about it? I’ve also bought plenty of dispensary ones (apex) and honestly, the (fake I guess) TKO Lime OG is the best i think I’ve ever had.

    Anyone else have this experience?

    • Just to add… I have extensive psychedelic experience.. I’m positive I’d be able to tell if there were something “else” in there, I just can’t understand how something that’s “fake” could be so much better than the real ones… it is hard on the lungs though… which makes me nervous for sure, also. In Boston.

      • The fake just means it’s a counterfeit of the original brand, TKO Extracts. It is very likely the plug you get it from puts quality THC oil in it and if so, the “TKO” part is just really the hardware. However, I would bet most of the fake TKO’s out there are probably not that great, and none of them are going to be as good as the original which does lab tests etc.

  133. I have been doing what they are calling fakes for months now, some flavors are good others not so much but all have been very good and only had one cell fail. BTW I don’t actually think “fake “is correct I believe there are just two companies using same name, is it a rip off? probably but if it’s good product who cares. Oh and first plug was charging 40 now I get for 30.

    • We thought that at first but following up further… it is a fake. There’s no central processing for the other TKO company and you can tell they even ripped off the logo. Even if there was a small TKO company, if it’s not a disposable you will be running into fakes.

      Also a bit telling, there is no pictures of anything related to extract production on their IG, which is their only official anything.

  134. Only tko fake i ever got was fake af like prob had no thc maybe 10%. Same for a monopoly igot fucker sucked and just made me a bit paranoid and anxious or maybe that was because i wasnt actually getting my daily dose of thc for 4 or 5 days before i gripped some fire now im sitting here blazed like damm was i just smoking honey for 5 days

  135. Yall watch out i smoked a fake tko and i was tripping . i been smoking for years and ik when its not weed . I been doing research and it could’ve had k2 or a lil pcp . I could’ve over dosed y’all stay safe, shit ain’t no joke


  137. I am purchasing Durban poison tomorrow. TKO says 100% Solvent Free..Premium Distillate. Are these fake? I noticed several to a box

  138. Holy shit, they’re literally two entirely different companies. You guys are absolute dweebs.

    • The fakes are all over DHgate. If there ever was any small company using that packaging it is 100x overdone by the fakes. Also you will notice they stole the logo from the original TKO. There’s only one TKO in CA. Post a link to the real brand then. All you will find is an IG that just posts hardware and nothing about making oil. You the dweeb son.

      • Thats what you get for buying a 1g for 25… ik this kid in quincy selling them for 25 and hes a pretty well known scumbag and scammer, i saw him post a pic of all his carts and he has 2 different sherbert tko carts, everything is the same but the color of the packaging, some orange, some yellow-i dont trust anyone that isnt my boy or my friends boy

  139. Fakes in Long Island. I’ve tried the TKO Candyland, Gelato, and Cookies. All very potent and probably the strongest carts I’ve tried.

  140. Fake ones here Obx NC their complete shit and taste like straight pine sol everyone’s got them they suck asssss but “they’ve got all the exotic flavors” ???????????? I’m so glad I found this forum so now I can screenshot it and sent it to anyone who tries to tell me they got TKO cuz for a while now all I can say is I don’t fucking want anyyyy TKO lol

    • You got a shitty source filling em up. This forum is hilarious. Only a few truly understand how the game works. Bad actors and good actors, you got to know good actors to get good product real or fake whatever that means!!!!

  141. It’s always the fake ones I buy here in Charleston SC, I usually hit the pen for around 3 to 5 seconds , taste decent and cheap. I like it better than the flowers that sale around here. Would like to get the real ones and see whats the difference.
    Jetty carts are the best carts I’ve tried so far here in Chuck town. That was about 3 years ago. Would love to get my hands on some more jetty.

    But all in all for $30 1 cart usually last under 2 weeks solo not that bad. I can buy $30 of flowers and it’s gone in under 30 minutes so it could be worse. But I will stick to the fake pens until I come across a plug with more legitimate products.

  142. my guy got a batch or two of these here in chicago. I didn’t think it was terrible. This wasn’t the only fake floating around… saw some guy advertising his amerijuana carts. turns out they were fakes. Ready for Illinois legalization 2020 ????

  143. “fakes” with white tips in Texas for about $35 a cart. For “fake” carts, they sure are damn good. At least as good as anything I tried in CO…

  144. I get real TKO carts here in Wisconsin for $40. I’ve never had an problems with them. Always great quality!

  145. Got 3 for $120 here in buffalo ny., sour diesel is the only one I have tried so far and I was very stoned, no headaches, and it tasted great

  146. I have a tko extract Durban poison rn and it does not have a pleasant taste compared to other carts I’ve had .

      • Not true, I buy carts from dispensary and I have 1 battery. They sell both disposable and just the cart. Maybe the real TKO only sells disposable but every dispensary I’ve been to in mass sells both. My daughter buys the fake tko because it’s cheaper. They work but taste like chemical unlike the good ones that taste like the bud.

        • Then that dispensary might be selling all fakes because TKO is only a CA company, but it’s also possible they are buying TKO hardware online and filling it up with good oil.

          Could you link to that store we would like to check it out further and verify

          Thanks for commenting!

      • Hey Admin …. you’re full of it dude. You have NO idea what you are talking about. Once again people … the TKO carts are an east coast company/brand and NOT a Calif. company. Just like Smart Carts, this is nothing more than an underground brand that found a niche and took off out east. Nothing more…. nothing less. There are no “real” TKO’s. Are the real ones coming with test results? Verifiable? No ….

        PS: I’m referring to the carts not the disposables.

        • The amount of fakes is astronimical. If there was a brand making them, at this point they are heavily outnumbered by the fakes so it really does not matter. If you get a TKO cart, 99% chance it is not from whatever brand you are referring to.

  148. I guess I had two fake tko carts but I got high as hell off them. I had cookies and og kush. Didn’t last very long tho only a few days.

  149. I am smoking what now appears to be a Fake cart from Mass. I have sativa and indica and have used these carts for the last 3 month. They came from a dispensary. The smoke seems to be great, each does what its supposed to except I get headaches in the morning. How do I find out what I’ve been smoking?

    • Funny how all the dispensaries in Boston carry and sell fakes shit and all you people think it’s real for some reason.

    • Can you tell me what yours cost? I always pay the same for the white tipped carts. They are inexpensive imho. My sister lives in CT and the prices there are criminal.

  150. I am not saying this is the case, but a lot of companies also push carts to illegal states. I have multiple friends who are reps for legitimate companies in Cali that send them in mass quantities to people in illegal states to sell. They tend to be “dirty” carts that they don’t want that affecting their reputation so they ship them off because they don’t want to waste product.

    • LOL .. “they don’t want to affect their reputation” but they’re willing to jeopardize their entire existence by sending their brand out of state? Yeah that makes a ton of sense. If they are doing that … they are doing it under a different brand. Finally …..companies out here in Calif. are not filling and packing up a ton of carts and then come to find out they are dirty and have to dump them. That shit involving testing is done WAY before they ever get into a cartridge.

  151. I get drug tested monthly. Nothing bad in the ‘fake’ carts im getting luckily.100000% better than any dispensary cart ive gotten anywhere on earth. KNOW YOUR SOURCE

    • I get drug tested every two weeks and after using these for one day and having nothing else for days, he claimed my THC levels were 1200 when they’re usually 200-300.

  152. I got TKO fakes today Zkittklez 45$ a gram cart and I been vaping 84% med Shatter lately and I’m bakes on four hits

  153. Just got TKO Orange Tangie in Rhode Island. My plug has Massachusetts ties very close to where the other commenters are from. Paid $50 for mine and it’s better than the Dank, Supremes and others I usually get.

    • I bought some of these by accident in NH.
      I got a massive headache so I looked it up and found this.
      Let me tell you though, I get drug tested at pain management and after using these fakes for one day he claims my THC levels were 1200 when they’re usually 200-300. So the ones in NH, from Maine, are pretty damn strong.

  154. Just got some from cali (candyland) taste great but nothing to them no potentcy. Barley makes me caugh. i hit this 10 times to my kingpen once & the king is “king” im in NJ fYI

  155. Just took two blasts off a “fake,” per this read (Mine come in slender tubes) and am torn.

  156. Just took two blasts off a “fake,” per this read (Mine come in slender tubes) and am torn.

  157. This review is two separate companies. Neither of them are fake they both just use the same name. Gotta do some homework guys.

      • We searched everywhere and even contacted the “other TKO” They have no registration anywhere. Talked with the original TKO and these are in fact fakes of their products.

        It’s more of a “hardware brand” at this point but there is no central processing for TKO extracts besides the official company in California that only produces disposables. They stopped making regular carts.

        You also will notice there is no pictures of any facilities for the fake TKO brand that is on instagram, because they don’t have one. They are just making hardware and reselling it. If the plug has good oil it still might be good though.

        These are no different than Eureka Vapor, a real brand in CA and a copy everywhere else.

        • The TKO brand you’re referring to is an East coast company, and they’ve been around for at LEAST five years. Just because somethings black market doesn’t mean it’s fake.

          • Correct about it being an East Coast company/brand. They’ve NEVER sold a cartridge in a dispensary in California…..NEVER. No idea about the disposables though. Looks like a company in Calif. just basically ripped off the name and rolled at some disposables. Clever enough to fool even “Bert Blaze”

          • It doesn’t even matter when there are so many fakes. Odds are whatever it is it’s a fake at this point.

  158. Another thing to worry about is the fakes using distillate that has been cut with glue. The glue when emulsified with distillate thickens it up and adds weight for higher profits. Another reason to ONLY buy licensed, tested product. Consumers are protected by law against poison additives in states that have legalized and legislated testing for licensed products.

  159. I get the fakes out here in vermont even though they may be bootleg. I have no complaints its still high quality oil every time.

    • Yeah i get them all the time and yeah i didnt think they were fake but great oil everytime and who know just becouse they have the same names which lots of places don’t mean its fake its a different logo same name but never heard of shitty product from these carts

    • No way is it high quality oil bro! When you’ve tried a good real one from a reputable med dispensary, then you’ll know how fake they are after the fist taste/puff! Klad4822@gmail. We’ll go to a dispensary Amy time ur in mass. Peace

  160. They have been around for over a year or so. They have an Instagram and actually consistently beat out all the other fakes I’ve tested. The 20 flavors are pretty true to the strain profile when compared to the same flower head to head on a few occasions. Some people are paying up to $100 for the fake tko in this report, the ones I tried were in the $50-60 range. I sure would like to try out a real disposable but I don’t like the idea of throwing batteries in the trash every few days or so. It’s like rap, the new rapper says the best rappers name to get recognition and fighting Toto get in the game. To find the real ones I suppose I’ll need to visit a Cali dispensary but that’s difficult when you have seizures, fibromyalgia and other debilitating chronic health conditions.

    • Good point the disposables. We do hit them as some have great oil but it is kind of a shame to throw away an entire battery each time, especially when they could use a cheap stick battery and it would cost not that much more but be better for the environment.
