Design and Build Quality
Oil Quality
Number of puffs

Plug Play vape cartridges are only available around the Los Angeles area. This is not your typical vape pod cartridge system. Plug Play pods contain premium THC oil. It only takes one puff to experience an instant head change. The pod design provides a superb vaping experience backed with a lot of strength. Doing this Plug Play vape review was a consistently strong dabbing experience. Vaping is very smooth, and the pods are capable of emitting big vape clouds.

Update: March 8, 2018: Plug and Play has relabeled their brand to Plug Play vape

UPDATE 12/30/19: Plug Play now uses CannVerify on their products. See this post for updates on packaging and a demo shot of the CannVerify process.

Recently, Plug Play made our best cartridges California list!

UPDATE 9/11/2019: DISCLAIMER: In light of more recent news, it has become apparent that black market cartridges, counterfeit cartridges, and fake brands of cartridges have become more widespread than we had ever realized. We urge readers to apply their own discretion, and caution that at no point should readers assume that a review of a cartridge on our site is a guarantee of its safety. We advise readers to always verify their cartridges as coming from a legitimate source.

Design and build quality of Plug Play vape cartridges are brilliant!

These are ceramic heating based pods that make all the difference! Vaping performance is incredible! It feels closer to a dab rig more so than any other vape cartridge that I’ve tried. The ceramic heating gives a clean potent hit for each vape. The design of this vape pen conceals its THC oil pods for discreteness. Plug Play vape pods are very durable and resistant to breaking from drops because its made from plastic. No glass to crack.

There were some minor design flaws in our eyes that kept this vape pen from being 100% perfect. They are taking the Apple approach and trying to lock its customers into having to buy their charging cable if it’s lost.

The Plug Play vape cable originally was not a standard micro-USB charging cable. Update 7/24/2018: Charger is now standard micro-USB. It used to have pins that magnetically snap onto the vape pen. The battery fully charges within an hour and lasts a couple of days of heavy use which is the benefit of the cable. Most of us probably would have preferred to see USB-C (aka Thunderbolt) being used here, which is the new standard on Android devices, and charges faster than standard USB 3.0.

In our Kandypens Prism review, we found the lighting charging port to be a nice bonus. It’s nice to be able to find a cable cheap and easy, even if it is not for your phone type.

Plug Play charging connection has three battery connection points.

Updated 7/2018 – Plug and play made the switch to a micro USB charging connection.

Plug Play updated their charging connection to a micro-USB in July 2018.


Premium THC oil is outstanding and stronger than most.

The Plug Play vape pod packaging claims it pods are filled with grade A cannabis solventless extract. The THC oil is so thick that it does not move. The color of the THC oil is a beautiful gold transparent. This premium THC oil will set the standards for those lucky enough to try it. Those who are after THC strength are going to enjoy the many potent vape cartridge options available.

The strength of Plug Play THC oil is the strongest I have tried so far.

Incredibly strong THC oil prefilled vape pods from

I underestimated the strength of the Plug Play vape cartridges. The packaging states these pods average from seventy to eighty percent of THC content. What surprised me was these vape pod cartridges felt more powerful than others I’ve tried that reported higher THC amounts. These felt stronger than Stiiizy pods that claim they are 85% THC. Limonene and other parts play an effect here as well.

I was lucky enough to try four different strains from Plug Play, and they all had consistently high strength. What I liked about Plug Play vape cartridges is not having to chase after the THC. After two good hits, I could get the full desired effects from the THC oil.

plug and play vape cartridge review
I tried out four different pods from Plug Play.

I was the biggest Stiiizy vape pen fan for the longest because of the THC oil strength proclaimed at 85% on average. When I first had Stiiizy last year, I remember the strength being out of this world. After being a loyal Stiiizy vape pen user, I notice the strength felt like it was getting weaker. Then pops up online an independent lab test on Stiiizy from Instagram user datdude41510 which revealed a lower percent of THC found, only 68% of THC was detected in the lab test for the Stiiizy Hardcore OG strain.

I have refilled Stiiizy pods and found that Stiiizy overall is a pesticide-free and good quality oil, but the strength really comes from the hardware and not the oil itself. Stiiizy has found its hardware match with Plug Play vape pods.

Plug Play cartridges have some delicious tasting recipes.

The graphics don’t look great, but it’s the hit that matters.

Plug Play created the perfect blend of clean and potent THC oil with just the right amount of added terpenes. The terpenes are just a hint making it not overwhelming at all and leaving more room for potency. Plug Play vape cartridges are outstanding with Fire OG being my favorite among the four I tried. My second favorite was the Pineapple with a very refreshing hint taste of pineapples. The Apple Slushie reminded me of a green apple jolly rancher. The Strawberry Campagne vape cart was also very nice.  I found myself wanting more of as I came close to running out. I would buy all of these vape cartridge flavors again.

Plug Play vape is great for taking with on a hike.

Efficiently is on another level for prefilled cartridges and pods.

Plug Play use ceramic coils.

There are no other vape cartridges or pods out there right now like Plug Play. The ceramic heating coils create smooth and potent hits similar to a dab rig. There is no burn on the throat from the vape from vaping Plug Play pods. It only takes one hit to feel a rush of THC transition you into being very high. The best example would be equivalent to smoking an entire joint of very high-quality indoor cannabis. The amount of time this vape cartridge system saves pays for itself. It just keeps getting better and better the improvement of vaping technology and ceramic heating coils were just the next logical step forward.

The number of puffs seem like a lot when you don’t need many.

The best thing about Plug Play is you do not need as much to feel medicated. I have a high tolerance and found myself needing only two full rips for a good quality session. Each puff will give a very strong effect so much that it’s almost unbelievable that it is coming from such a small device. A puff from Plug Play vape cartridges has much better airflow than other pods and cartridges I tried. It also had an excellent consistency for each puff without clogging like Stiiizy pods.

The Plug Play pods and vape pens are worth every cent!

This vaping brand offers the most convenience for vaping strong cannabis extract. The “Play” vape pen battery costs $20.00. The prefilled THC oil vape cartridges are called “Plug” and cost $55 on average for a full gram. We recommend this vaping set up for those who want an easy and the most efficient way to vape cannabis extract. The prefilled vape cartridges will keep you coming back for more! Let us know about your experience with this great vaping brand.

My number one recommendation before trying out Plug Play was the Stiiizy vape pen and their pods. I had spent well over a half a grand on Stiiizy pods as it became my number one go-to for my every day vaping use. There always felt like something was missing from Stiiizy pods and I found that with Plug Play. It is yet to see if this will be an exclusive oil pen form factor or if we will see it come out with other oil types. Thanks for checking out our Plug Play vape review.

Plug and Play vs Stiiizy
Plug and play vs Stiiizy



  1. Don’t really like leaving comments but since the comment section appears to just be a bunch of trolls and questions I thought I’d chime in. I totally agree with everything you said. Plug are the best out there. They give three biggest, smoothest hit and you definitely feel it immediately if not instantly. I’d say “ 0 to a 100 real quick. No cap. “ . They’re definitely the real deal. All the cartridges are high quality and high powered for sure. I ended up trying the Stiizy BIG Pen when I couldn’t find any Plug cartridges nearby . The BIG pen was most likely their attempt to actually compete with Plug but they fall short. It gives much bigger hits than the original Stiizy but they still don’t compare and the strength of the oil is no where near as strong as Plug. Plug really has no real competition out there tbh and I have been smoking for over 30 years. Hope that helps the Real Ones out there. ✌🏾

  2. I just bought a plug and play battery do I have to use the charger that came with it or can I use any charger that fits

  3. I have a E GLÜ pod & my plugnplay battery doesn’t wanna take it? what should I do? Is it the pod that needs a different battery?

  4. I would also like to know if the cartridges contain Vitamin E Acetate??????? Please answer! I can’t seem to find the answer anywhere. Other folks have asked this question and no answer which leads me to believe that yes it probably does and it would reduce sales. So an answer would be greatly appreciated! Thanking you in advance

  5. Just tried this line (with Girl Scout Cookies) a few hours ago and am struggling to write this comment! One hit and after 10 minutes I was wondering what all the fuss was about. Not 2-3 minutes later and I was worried because I am home alone and could barely function. I will definitely take a much smaller hit next time. But it is definitely strong! Btw, I have never left a comment in any online forum, but your well written and extremely informative article compelled me to do so. You covered just about every question I had and your advice was spot on! I wouldn’t have tried this brand if not for your article. Thanks! 🙂

  6. I love my plug and play master piece OG and fire OG are the best . I go to Santa Ana to get the tested ones. Suggesting by plug and play themselves.fuck fake carts…

  7. Sorry added terps not a good thing. My understanding whole plant fresh frozen products with natural terpenes. I don’t like the removal and reintroduction of terps. Distillate with added terps or any distillate is inferior to live resin or sauce made with whole plant for full cannabinoid profile. It’s not about most THC. Best example 35% thc flowers came in 50th out of 100 at a cannabis cup winners were 22-26% but with a full terpene profile. Highest THC winner tasted like hay. Same applies to concentrates rather have 80% full flavor than over 90% THC. Zero flavor. jmho

  8. Anyone know what the fire og smoke smells like? Is it discrete or does it have a very strong weed smell/ Potent smell to it where someone would know automatically someone smoking weed or is it discrete where if u smoke it in a room, the smell isn’t noticeable at all??? (The smoke)

  10. Have a massive tolerance. Only Select and ASCND have been the only go to’s. Then I found PlugPlay.

    Amazing oil and potency. I used to have to smoke 20-25 hits to get medicated well. Now 5-6 off plug play and I good. masterpiece og is my favorite, follower by Fire OG.

    Question, the exotic line… are they all the same strain with flavors added? Anyone know what strain that is. It’s odd. Good effect and 30 min later I’m tired and these are hybrids) just curious.

    But from someone with a huge tolerance – look no further than plugplay.

    Also – only buy from verified weedmap dispensaries. The fakes are out there already. I got burned once.

    The packaging should be wrapped in plastic, plastic cover over the middle opening and test data on the label. If it’s not wrapped, not real. Really getting sick of this fake nonsense. Esp in CA, where there’s non need.

    But $55-$60 a gram – can’t be beat.

  11. I rip it hard and long and I don’t even cough. I can take fat ass dabs though. I thought this pen would produce more vapor, unless I got a fake battery or do I just have iron lungs

  12. Ive had a one for about a month and the battery doesn’t seem to work anymore it doesn’t charge but keeps flashing white light any help?

  13. I got a plug n play with a grape ape pod. The first 2 hits were ok and now it taste burnt. This is the worst thc oil I have ever tasted. I’m sorry I wasted 70 bucks on this pos.

  14. All I would like to know is where can buy the cartridges in bulk? I just got one and glad I didn’t get another kind. I want to switch from flower all together but the cheapest I can find is $52. I LOVE this thing!!! Any ideas?

    • Any replies yet..Im in the same boat..Bought tbr set up and the Fire OG. Cart..Now im kicking myself in the teeth for not buying all of them..Lmk

  15. I guess my tolerance is really high, because it did not medicate me that much. Although, when I did an edible with 210,g I was high as you know what. I feel that I need a something extra with it to get the full effect.

  16. I haven’t tried plug and plays brand but i got 5 vfire carts and 3 out of the five broke. Just cracked and leaked all over. Would reconmend the other stlye of cartridge unless you enjoy stinky oily pockets. And today for instance having the pen completely not work beacase of the leaking. Ikrusher and the style of these carts are just too cheap and easily cracked. I could throw the other style at the wall and itd be fine.

  17. Awesome review man, on point! You and I are on the same wavelength on everything, even the stiiizy stuff. But it’s crazy how much of a full effect you get with this oil, and 2 big rips get you pretty medicated, even for those with a heavy tolerance.

    Keep up the great reviews!

  18. Can I use steeze cartriges with my Plug and Play wape? I have a Plug and Play wape but its very big problem find same cartriges for him in Europe.
