Brass Knuckles Vape Cartridge Fakes: Read Before You Buy!

The infamous Brass Knuckles vape cartridge product line is a popular brand amongst vapers. Before buying your own Brass Knuckles products, it is important to be aware of a few things:

  • There are fake vape products in circulation from this brand;
  • The fakes are easily spotted from their packaging differences;
  • You can also spot them from the differences in materials used for making the vape cartridges;
  • It’s therefore important to buy only original Brass knuckles cartridges from their official website (which you can access through this link);
  • Further into the article, I’ll share my favorite cartridges from the Brass Knuckles brand!

The vape industry has had their fair share of problems with fakes, knockoffs and all sorts of methods to mislead and outright scam customers. Wherever there is a popular new product line emerging from the scene, trouble can be found. You will always find people trying to make a buck out of ignorant people. Don’t fall into their trap, these people try to lure you into a dark, sinister path.

As an experienced “weird vape products” consumer, I’d like to share my experiences with purchasing my very own fakes while trying to get my hands on some hybrid cartridges from Brass Knuckles.

Here’s what I’ve learned from buying those fakes.

Please do read on and learn from my mistakes, so you don’t have to make them yourself in the future. It’s a lot easier to avoid than you might think!

Spotting A Fake Brass Knuckles Vape Cartridge

It’s actually pretty easy to spot fake cartridges. At least, when they are done poorly. It’s usually a weird spelling error that will give away the secret. The ones I bought had spelling errors similar to these on the packaging:

The fake version is pretty easy to spot (source)

These methods won’t fool anyone of course, the error “Hybird” instead of “Hybrid” is almost laughable. But it’s also something that’s done on purpose to avoid legal problems.

Counterfeit vape cartridges will sometimes function as normal.

But there are also knock-offs that won’t work at all, or are nearly empty to begin with. The less e-juice that’s being poured into the cartridge containers, the more profit for the person making the counterfeits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. Some will also have different (cheaper) materials used in the production process. Here’s a video example of such a fake product:

But what if you’re purchasing online and you only find out later on? What if you see it after opening the package? That is exactly what happened to me when getting some Brass Knuckles products. Avoiding this is actually easier than you might think.

Where To Buy An Official Brass Knuckles Vape Cartridge

Here are some easy principles to take into account when shopping around for any type of vape product, be it in a vape shop or on an online vaping e-commerce website:

  • Only ever buy vape products from the official producer website;
  • Alternatively, only purchase vape products from well-known and respected websites, I personally prefer using sites like or;
  • Avoid purchasing from websites you have never heard of;
  • Avoid purchasing from social media links or accounts;
  • Avoid purchasing second-hand products from Facebook groups, Craigslist or eBay;
  • If you must use an obscure site, Google them first to find some reviews or (negative) feedback. If nothing out of the ordinary pops up, feel free to take the gamble.

Once you apply the above principles in your purchasing, chances are you will never even run into one of these knock-off products. So write them down, pin them on your wall and never forget them. It might just save you a lot of money one day, which you can now go and spend on actually good vape products made by genuine companies.

Guess who one of those genuine high-quality vape companies is? You’re right, I’m talking about Brass Knuckles. This brand is the OG of super high-quality vape cartridges. It’s one of the most sought after vape brands in the last few years, which is quite respectable considering the serious competition we have seen in this industry lately.

Anyhow, let’s jump right into some of the best Brass Knuckles vape products. Please note these are my personal favorites and individual preferences can differ. After all, most e-juice cartridges will have different tastes and smells, so do keep that in mind when you grab some ideas off of the list below.

The 3 Best Brass Knuckles Vape Cartridges

Now that know how to avoid counterfeit cartridges and where to buy OG Brass Knuckle products. But which ones should you get? First of all, please note that they have three main product categories available in their store:

  1. Indica Cartridges: Powerful, full-body relaxation is achieved with Indica strains. It’s one of the most popular strains out there and will help relieve pain, insomnia or anxiety symptoms like no other strain out there.
  2. Sativa Cartridges: Well-known for its helpful uplifting effects, the Sativa strains are useful for people that seek help with getting into a more positive mood. Sativa can also help with relief of both stress and anxiety.
  3. Hybrid Cartridges: As the name implies, these offer the best of both worlds. They combine the Indica and Sativa strains to form a glorious hybrid. It’s a bit too much for some, but I absolutely love the hybrid options from Brass Knuckles.

So what’s the best option for you? It’s a personal preference (sorry to be lame, but that’s the truth). Therefore, I encourage you to go ahead and just try one of each category yourself. It’s the only way to find out what you like the most. To get you going with some inspiration, here’s my personal top 3, perhaps you’ll find your own favorites in this list as well:

  1. Forbidden Fruit: This hybrid vape cartridge doesn’t just sound mysterious, it will also give you an exotic fruity experience that you will remember for quite a while. The premium concentrate of the Forbidden Fruit cartridges will blow your socks off and send you into a mellow experience after a few inhales. Very potent stuff!
  2. Blue Dream: This Sativa-strain dominant product is an amazing mix of two flavor options. I’m talking about a surprising mix between Haze and Blueberry. Inhale, relax and enjoy your berry-fruit hints while you slowly bring you into a mellow but euphoric state. That’s probably the “dream” part of name is from.
  3. Maui: While we are on the topic of exotic flavors, what about this Hawaii-inspired Maui one? The Sativa-dominant strains will give you all the tropical earthy floral flavors you could wish for, with a hint of orange and citrus afterward. It’s pretty heavy for first users, so be aware of that when trying this one out for yourself.

Brass Knuckles is one of the more popular herb-based solutions for vape cartridges, but there are many more types of cartridge options that vapers can enjoy. Did you know that there are also CBD vape cartridges available? I tend to buy mine from here, this store offers a good price and decent service. And you can rest assured that they aren’t fakes.

But the most plentiful options are obviously the regular e-juice variety, which can be bought at every general vape store out there. Whichever flavor option you prefer, there is probably a pre-filled cartridge solution for you on the market.

On the VapingJunkie blog, you can find a lot of info about other popular vape products as well. I’ve done quite a few reviews for e-juices, CBD vapes, vape pens, tanks, atomizers, Juul (alternatives) and much more! Just take a look around on the blog if you’re interested.
