Unfortunately, there is the black market cart known as TKO Extracts trying to confuse people with similar branding of the actual TKO Products. It looks like they had some major success in doing so much that the fake's Instagram has gained more followers than the actual TKO Products. Currently, the fake TKO extracts cartridge Instagram page has over 25,000 followers. The TKO Extracts is not associated with TKO Product.
Well, if you needed any legitimate proof that that the _tkoextracts account on IG is pushing unregulated and not tested THC oil cartridges, now you got it! They just got caught trying to post fake lab test results on their instagram account. The company of the Lab (Belcostalabs) commented back that the lab test results posted were not legitimate. This is a common practice among black market cartridges, they try to fool their followers with images edited that are made to look like authenthic lab test proving their product is clean. Since we posted this article their Instagram account has been under attack by people now aware they are a black market brand cartridge that can have pesticides and lower THC content than advertised. Comments on their Instagram page have been disabled after they were caught trying to show fake lab test results.
TKO Products is a California based company, established in 2011, that only sells within the states. Their mission is to provide quality, potency, and flavor, and from experience, we have recognized TKO Products to be a legitimate brand that sells high-quality cannabis products that range from TKO vape cartridges to TKO sweet edibles. Do not be confused by lower quality copy cat products such as TKO carts, continue reading our guide to avoid buying a fake.
Fortunately, we have found that TKO Products has created a website for TKO products, and most importantly within their website they have provides detailed information on each product, including the Certificate of Analysis on each product. With each report, you will found out if they passed the test for the following elements: microbial, mycotoxins, pesticides, cannabinoids, heavy metals, water activity, foreign materials, residual resolvent. Another important verification you will get from the report, specifically for the TKO vape cartridges, is the confirmation of what type and percentage of cannabinoids are in the TKO Extracts, which includes how much CBD and THC in each product.
Be caution of the TKO Extracts brand, it may look like the TKO Products but it's not the same. They claim to have the same high amount of THC content, however, their product is much weaker when we tried it out for ourselves. The taste of the vapor from TKO Extracts was bitter too. The distillate oil also failed the bubble test proving to be cut up with unpleasant tasting terpenes. I do not recommend buying these cheap TKO carts for sale at $25 a full gram.
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.
Out of the four flavors we tried the Rose Gold and Rich Gelato, the Rose Gold had a refreshing flavor and the Rich Gelato contained a fruity flavor that included the taste of several berries. We experienced no leakage, they both were very smooth to hit, and the euphoric feeling kicked in quickly, so make sure to pace yourself if you are on the side of being a recent new smoker. If you are only just starting to smoke, we advise that you smoke this product slowly or you may experience a headache due to its potency. Their products are extremely strong because of the high quality of THC and while often companies who provide strong THC vape cartridges have an unpleasant after-taste or create some rough hits; TKO seems to have figured out the secret to the issue. Their high-quality products have provided us with strong smooth flavorful hits that are not followed by bad after-tastes.
We highly recommend authentic TKO Extracts cartridges, just make sure that you are not buying any fake TKO cartridges, so follow their page or Instagram page to stay up-to-date with the new styles of pens they offer. We urge you to always compare the product you are buying to what is being offered on their site or social media because people continue to create fake TKO cartridges, selling empty vape cartridges for individuals to fill with their own oils. Since this is occurring it has been reported that some “TKO cartridges” have been making people ill, so please confirm the product you are buying is legitimate to avoid consuming chemicals that will make you ill.
TKO has penetrated the cannabis edibles market, selling products that range from cannabis-infused Chocolate Chip cookies, Peanut Butter cookies, and Snickerdoodle with a potency of 92.72 mg of THC per package. They sell cannabis-infused Dark and Milk Chocolate that is made with their own distillate cannabis-infused in coconut oil, which gives you the nice smooth chocolate texture and an aftertaste of pure chocolate candy. They also sell Brownies, and from experience, we can vouch that these brownies are tasteful and get the job done. The Brownies, along with all other baked goods are claimed to be made with only 90% plus THC distillate oil. Since these cannabis edibles are made with high-quality THC oil, we advise everyone who is trying their edibles to take small portions. Within an hour you may get an abrupt hit with a sense of strong euphoria, instead of incrementally feeling a stronger sense of euphoria grow within a span of time.
