This Rove cartridge review is on their latest release. The Rove brand has some of the tastiest CO2 oil available prefilled in cartridges. Unfortunately, their previous vape cartridges couldn't handle their super thick cannabis oil. It would struggle to vape it and the cartridges would also experience leaking as reported by many people online. I've had their first very first generation Rove cartridge prior to this review. Fortunately, the new Rove vape cartridges have been improved with a new design that can adequately vape the THC oil prefilled inside of it. Below is a picture of authentic Rove cartridges.

Authentic Rove cartridges will now have a QR code that can be scanned and verify its real. As of now, this is a brilliant strategy implemented to counter the fake Rove cartridges. The QR code can only be scanned and verified once, and will not work afterward. Scanning is encouraged with the opportunity to win prizes such as Rove merchandise. We’ve seen the vape cartridge brand Brass Knuckles hit by counterfeits and they tried to fight back with serial number stickers that was soon counterfeited too.
As of now there doesn’t seem to be any way the fakes can replicate the Rove Carts QR codes. Let's hope they don’t find out how to and disrupt the Rove cartridges brand again.
