With Dank Vapes officially claiming their new packaging, they have become a popular phenomenon and contradiction. Because of how much we enjoyed them, we picked up Sunset Sherbet, a hybrid that is rich in taste. We have previously reviewed Dank Vapes and always love the taste in terpenes in them, however we aren’t sure how safe or legit the oil is.


  • Brand new packaging
  • Amazing taste
  • Pleasurable and lasting high
  • High quality hardware


  • Their last lab tests show pesticides (before new packaging)
  • Fakes have already been replicated

Recommendations: Make cartridges that pass lab tests.

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.

See our video review below and keep reading on for the more in depth review on the new Dank Vapes cartridges.

With many counterfeits, Dank Vapes updated the look of their packaging

With the new Dank Vape cartridges, they come with a holographic design in all flavors.

Because of how popular Dank Vapes are becoming, many vendors are selling fake Dank Vapes, containing harmful pesticides and artificial flavors. Fake cartridges are everywhere these days. Because of this, they came out with a newer and fresher look to their packaging. These new packaging contain a little extra distillateboosting it up from a gram to 1.1 grams.

Something about these cartridges is each flavor has a unique color to its name. Most packages say they’re above 90% THC, have a brief description on the strain and claim to contain no propylene glycol. High THC claims should be taken with a grain of salt without a lab report to back it up. Dank Vapes has tested lower than they claim before.

Each flavor displays a different, holographic color.

Hopefully new lab test results will come with their new packaging

As shown below, these are their most recent lab results that they have out. Because these tests are from December of 2018, test results may be different with their updated packaging. Unfortunately Dank’s have come out with negative test results in the past various times, making it a bit suspicious to consume. Aside of that, hopefully they come out stronger and cleaner than ever with these updated packages.

Test results came in at 65% total THC, showing no foreign materials, pests, mold or fungus for Dank Vapes.

Sunset Sherbet gives a great feeling of euphoria with a sweet, light taste to it

This hybrid strain gives an amazing high, with a dominant strain of GSC.

From the taste to the high, this strain settles in very smoothly yet powerful. Dank Vapes Sunset Sherbet is a rich hybrid that really does provide a carefree high and a mellow mindset. Additionally, this strain provides a great combination of relaxation, yet a slight boost of energy. The hits as always are smooth and tasteful, giving sweet, fruity and light hits. I personally liked the light taste a lot, unlike when cartridges taste strong and much like artificial flavors and chemicals.

With the older Dank Vapes review, one of the flavored strains that we tried was Fruity Pebbles. Although this strain tasted identical to the cereal itself, I thought it tasted too similar and felt suspicious smoking it. This unfortunately has become a problem for this brand and I’m not the first to experience this dilemma. I haven’t encountered any skeptical tasting Dank’s with this new packaging yet and hope not too anytime in the future.

Dank Vapes contains thin oil, yet heavy hits

Hopefully the oil in the distillate has been updated as well as their packaging. As shown in their lab test results, their last tests do sadly show a low of 65% THC. With that being said, the oil is fairly thin and does have a strong gold color to it.

The oil may be thin, but the air bubble does move somewhat slow.

Even though the oil may not seem as thick as I’d like it to be, don’t let that fool you. You may not feel it right away or at the moment, but the high settles in nice and gentle. Because of this, it’s easy to get baked without even realizing in just a few hits (which could be a great thing for you). In general, it did take me around 5 hits to even feel anything at all. But once I did, it was all I needed to stay productive and enjoy my high.

Hits tasted gentle and light, with a citrusy and berry like flavor

Something that Dank Vape’s have always been known for is their flavor. Regardless of what strain you get, I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with the taste of it. Usually, most flavors give a strong taste but with this strain, it was kind of light and satisfying when hitting it. Furthermore, this brand really is great when it comes to mixing their terpenes in each flavored distillate.

The CCELL cartridge hardware remained the same

With the cartridge itself, there has been no change to it. The only thing is that they mentioned in their packaging the cartridges they use are official CCELL carts. As usual, these carts hit smoothly, easy and gave thick smoke.

Personally went through it sooner than expected 

Because of how smooth and savory Dank Vapes are, I tend to go through these cartridge within a few days. This situation may not apply to you, for the distillate may last a while depending on how often you smoke. But for all you dab fanatics, this cartridge does smoke through considerably fast.

The black market has already caught on,  selling replicas

People are buying packages in bulk and selling them with what ever oil they’d like.

Not even within a month and they have already found a way to replicate these new packages. Because of how quick this happened, there is no telling how to identify fakes yet. Dank Vapes were fast to react when this first happened to them with their old packaging. I hope they are quick to resolve this problem.

Overall, I still believe Dank Vapes to give a great high and savory taste to it

dank vapes review
Dank Vapes will always give amazing taste and high, apart from their lab results.

Despite of all the negative traits, these cartridges will always surprise me with its high, especially its taste. Only thing is, if they come out with new positive lab tests to back them up, they’ll become more trustworthy. Once they solve these issues that are hurting their brand, they will increase so much of their reputation. I can tell you that I will definitely be purchasing their new flavors more often when they do.

I should also mention that on their official Instagram account, they do call out accounts selling fake cartridges! Seeing them putting efforts to become more reputable is great and helps re-build their credibility.

I personally believe to see all of these problems and dilemmas to go away within the next couple years, hopefully. Until then, we can’t put a whole lot of value just because we aren’t too sure what exactly we’re consuming. When purchasing Dank Vapes, we always recommend to purchase your cartridges through licensed dispensaries or a reliable source.
