What is a fake Brass Knuckles cartridge?

A Brass Knuckles cartridge is considered a fake when it contains oil that was not made by the actual company, Brass Knuckles. In China, companies make cartridges with Brass Knuckles branding, logos, and packaging. We are not sure if the real company is able to pursue any of the Chinese makers legally, because there might not be a trademark since technically Brass Knuckles is a federally illegal product.

Real Brass Knuckles has had issues anyway

The think about Brass Knuckles vape cartridges is even the real ones have problems. Most recently they have tested clean. However, it is hard to trust them after multiple failures for pesticides. There is even a lawsuit against Brass Knuckles currently ongoing for somebdy that got sick from their carts. See our for Brass Knuckles testing information, current and past.

THC vape cartridges better than Brass Knuckles

are all better than Brass Knuckles. Next time you are at any dispensary and thinking of picking up Brass Knuckles, ask the  what they think is better. I have never had any budtender at any shop say Brass Knuckles was the best they had.

Advertising plays a role

Some brands pay a lot for advertising and celebrity endorsements. This does not ensure a good product nor are we stating that advertising means it is a bad product. G Pen products are not good but they got Snoop Dogg. Brass Knuckles strength is actually pretty good, but the pesticides issue makes it lack some trust, and they got Xzibit. Nike had Tiger,  The point is try the stuff yourself and read reviews that are not paid for. You will be surprised at the quality some of these unadvertised brands are delivering.

Key things to look for to identify fake Brass Knuckles vape carts


All the lettering should be worded correctly. China is notorious for misspelling things and this is an easy thing to spot. Also, it’s an easy thing for them to fix, so this might not last forever. This reminds me of the odd English formats you would see in Japanese made video games back in the NES days.

No strain information on bottom of packaging

Real Brass Knuckles cartridges have strain information on the bottom. When that information is lacking, you can be sure it is a fake cartridge.

Brass Knuckles should make a list of verified vendors

We hope in the future Brass Knuckles puts up a list of verified vendors. This would be the most efficient way to buy real cartridges. Unfortunately, their system of determining fakes is actually less effective than this page. Not the best organized company, hence the previous pesticide issues.

CA! symbol does not always mean real or fake

We read elsewhere that some claim if there is now CA! symbol, then the Brass Knuckles cartridge is fake. That’s not the case. If it is being sold in California, it should have a CA! symbol on it. However, Brass Knuckles is also sold in Nevada, where there is no CA! symbol on the packaging.

Likewise, having a CA! symbol in California does not always mean it is real. Make sure to check other indicators for authenticity as well.
