Design is Made For Hard Hits, But Can Get Stuck

The Rove cartridge review was pleasant because it discovered a really good product. Rove cartridges are great for vaping really big vape clouds. This cartridge could be so much better. I am yet to find a perfect cartridge, like others this one had issues too. The prefilled cartridge from Rove could not vape the thick co2 oil inside of it until I used a lighter to liquefied the thick cannabis oil. After putting a flame close to the glass of the cartridge for a few seconds only then I was able to vape the biggest clouds.

Update 10/08/2018: We have determined that Rove uses the Liberty V-1 as its cartridge hardware. Cannabiotix vapes use the same too.

Update 05/13/2019: Rove has improved their cartridge and fixed the clogging issues.

Some of the strongest co2 oil I ever vaped from a prefilled cartridge.

The strength of the rove cartridge was impressive. It is one of the strongest I have hit. The lab test for the Gorilla Glue cartridge I tried out tested 78.09% THC and 89.87% total active cannabinoids. This co2 oil felt as strong as a Brass Knuckles cartridge if not stronger.

Taste of the cannabis oil when vaped was great!

The cannabis oil vaped had some great flavor profiles to it. Vaping the Gorilla Glue cartridge from Rove tasted great. I have smoked Gorilla Glue before and this cartridge from Rove had the same flavor of the actual cannabis. The official website of Rove brand states their cannabis oil isn’t cut with any filters, only terpenes and other natural flavors where added.

Price is a bit expensive but the cannabis oil makes it worth it.

The average cost of this prefilled cartridge is going for $40.00 a half gram in the Bay Area. The price doesn’t include the 30% cannabis tax in California, $52.00 would be the total for a half gram. A full gram would set you back over $100.00. I have seen a Half gram for $35.00 as the lowest price and that’s before the cannabis tax. I couldn’t find myself buying a whole gram when there are other options available for less and with the same strength. Americanna, Just Dab, Select Oil and Brass Knuckles are all cartridges I may consider instead.

Efficiency is both a success and failure with vaping performance.

The Rove cartridge performs great only when the cannabis oil has been warmed up with a lighter. It was very inconvenient when it wouldn’t vape without me having to put a flame to the glass of the prefilled cartridge. My friend’s Rove cartridge wasn’t hitting with any vape battery she tried. It only worked after I had shown her the lighter trick.

If the Rove cart is hitting right, it delivers awesome clouds. See the video below for proof of that.

Update: Latest packaging as of December 2020

We drop in to check on Rove once in awhile. We find them the same as last time, but their packaging has updated. Since Rove is such a heavily counterfeited brand, we think it’s important to keep up on current actual dispensary samples for comparison.

Rove Cartridge Review Discovers decent amount of hits but less than others.

Clouds coming out of the Rove vape cart are huge. This results in fewer overall hits. Vaping the Rove cartridge reminded me of taking a dab from a dab rig because of the huge clouds. If your looking for strength and a true dab pen experience this is your best option. It gets closer to a vape pen experience than the other prefills we have reviewed. I recommend for festivals such as Coachella or EDM events. I would buy this prefilled cartridge again. It’s a good product that needs to improve upon its cartridge so that it can vape its co2 oil efficiently.

In conclusion, the Rove cartridge review revealed a prefilled cartridge with some strong and clean c02 oil. Hits were strong. The stuck oil issue is fixable. Hits are awesome when they do come out after the quick fix. I recommend trying this vape cart out so you can feel the strength. You can learn more about Rove here.


  1. Every rove cart I’ve had has worked great gotten a lot of other carts that leaked or didn’t work but when I’m able to get the rove carts I buy them up

  2. Rove Brand Cartridges are the absolute best made. No propane or butane or ethanol or anything else bad. Each battery has a pre heat option for the thick oil and since the price has recently dropped to 40 bucks for half gram. And get to know your dispensary cuz I usually only buy during a Rove pop up. Last time I went it was BOGO. Yeah but one get one free. DAMN what a deal. Black Jack collective.

  3. So I just bought one last night and the first hit was amazing the following hits taste like burning rubber or something like that.. I don’t know all I know is it’s hard to try and hit it when it tastes like that.. any ideas on how to fix it or is it done for?

  4. I don’t live in a legal state but I just got my first Rove cart and I will say I love it I didn’t have any problems with the thick oil I just used my pre heat setting and I was getting good hits and thick clouds best cart I have had so far my second favorite is brass knuckles and the pat pen I got in Colorado was good too

  5. @Jon
    I tried the pre-heat setting for a full minute and a half and they still don’t fire on a good battery.
    The wax is good, but the capsules are faulty and trash. Don’t defend this type of shoddy corporate bullshit.

  6. If you’re pulling oil thru the tip, you’re sucking on it not hitting it ???????? hit it no harder than you would a joint or blunt with a good seal. And yes, nearly every pen manufacturer has a preheat setting. People just dont read. As far as the Rove featured farm carts go,they work just fine if you know how to handle your extracts. Experience, young ones. You’ll figure it out in a couple years unless you do your research, then sooner. Learn how to handle your shatter/distillate carts/etc, you wont have the issues you’re describing. I’ve used just about every style cartridge there is to fill on my own even and don’t have consistent issues.

  7. Mine Rove cart, just started leaking 🙁 But I still have a strange (cant find any info on the Company that makes them, came in a tube that said Bomb Vape) 85%+ THC and 1100 Mg its 1/2 gone. I have a generic battery with 2.0-4.0. I keep mine at 3.0-3.4v

  8. The new roves that came out recently fixed the thick oil/clogging issues. The carts now come with the oil pre-primed, so no need to preheat. Best carts out there.

    • Yes I have been using the dank brand and am very interested in trying your product can you please help me with the information I need to get started

  9. I also have the problem with Rove cartridges being clogged or stuck and unable to be used. I only use Rove brand batteries on my cartridges. After using the preheat setting to warm up the oil, i run into the problem where the oil starts coming out of the top when trying to get a hit. I personally like Rove cartridges with its quality and performance when the cartridge isn’t clogged or stuck. The only problems i have with Rove cartridges is the clogged or stuck cartridge and the price. I do not like to use my hard earned cash on a defective product, especially when its $100+ for 1 gram. Lately I have been having many issues with the cartridges after a day of use and then gets clogged or stuck. My theory is Rove cartridges are best used in the summertime or only in warm areas.

  10. I love my Rove Pro! And you can preheat the oil without the lighter fix. After you turn it on, double click and the lights will blink green. This preheats the oil. Give it a few second. Click once to turn the preheat off, then hit as normal. Hope this helps ?

  11. Bro thank you for this tip I was upset that I threw down this much $ fir a poor product but this just reversed that line of thought completely. ?

  12. I work in a shop that sells Roves andand peo come in constantly saying that the cartridges don’t hit when they never read the instructions telling them that there’s a preheat setting on Rove pens tap the button twice and it’ll heat up for a whole minute and a half and then you hit it no point in putting a lighter to it just read the instructions whoever made this review doesn’t know what they’re talking about
