Cannabis has a long history of DIY hacks. For generations now, there have been DIY weed innovations such as apple bowls, hot knives, ballpoint pen chillums, soda can bowls, and, when you hit bottom, pipes made of only tin foil.

And the age of extracts and vaping of course has its own hacks. Sure you can buy some pre-filled vape pens or cartridges. However, if you want to hit your favorite blend out of your favorite device, sometimes you have to be a true master MacGyver of the vape and fill your own cartridge.

Luckily, it’s a pretty simple process if you follow these easy steps:


  • Juul Pod
  • Your favorite hash concentrate or isolate
  • E-liquid
  • Syringe
  • Flathead screwdriver


  1. Remove Plastic Mouthpiece

Wedge the screwdriver under the sides of the plastic cap to release it from pod. This shouldn’t be difficult. Just be gentle so you don’t break the plastic while you do it.

While it’s out, you might as well clean it with a little rubbing alcohol to keep them germs at bay.

  1. Check for Nicotine in Cotton Pads

If you bought an empty Juul pod, then you’re set and you can skip this one. If you don’t mind a little nicotine in your hash oil, then you’re set and you can skip this one. Otherwise, you’ll want to remove those two cotton pads inside the mouthpiece which have absorbed all that nicotine juice. Use the flathead to remove it.

  1. Remove Rubber Gasket

You can use the screwdriver to take the rubber lip which will still be on the end of the clear pod.

  1. Fill up the pod

Use the syringe to fill the pod with your distolate. Go slow and steady and don’t let it overflow.

  1. Put the gasket and mouthpiece back on

Just like how they were before. Then put the pod into the Juul and vape away.

Now you’ve got the stealthiest vape method around. With 70.5% of the e-cigarette market, Juuls are by far the most common vape pen, so there’s no way to be less conspicuous unless you do it while wearing camo.
