By now, most cannabis vaping enthusiasts have heard of Select Elite Carts
Select Elite CARTS :Owned by Cura Cannabis Solutions, one of the largest cannabis companies in America, the Select Elite Carts brand has been a best selling West Coast leader in the cannabis vape oil industry for years. Select has been winning awards and gaining recognition not only for their extensive line of cannabis vape products, but also their vast array of goodies from 1+1 ratio CBD/THC tinctures to CBD only products to edible gummies.
One of their most popular lines of cannabis oil vape cartridges is called Select Elite Carts Select Elite cannabis vape cartridges deliver activated, broad-spectrum oils that infuse high quality and potency with Select’s highest concentration of activated THC.
Using Ethanol Hash Oil extraction methods and proprietary distillation techniques, Select’s vape products provide high levels of cannabinoid and THC retention, as well as natural terpene preservation. Each cartridge delivers potent and true-to-strain high effects as well as natural flavors.
Select offers many different strains, some of which are also available as disposable vapes or stand-alone wax for dabs.
In testing Select Elite oils, I got my hands on two cannabis cartridge oils – Strawberry Banana and Pineapple Express.
Design & Packaging
Select uses 510-threaded CCELL (ceramic core) cartridges designed to fit flawlessly in any universal 510-threaded vape device. Having a ceramic core means evenly distributed heat to the oil, increasing both the quality and volume of vapor with every draw.
Using unbleached, organic cotton wicks in clear plastic mouthpieces ensures purity and smoothness in every puff. Some brands don’t use transparent mouthpieces, and I like the fact that I can see how clear of oil the mouthpiece remains during the life of the cartridge.
Select claims a shelf life of two years for their cannabis oil cartridges, which is good news for lighter vape users. When properly stored, these cartridges should still work beyond two years, but may decrease in efficacy.
Pro tip: When not in use, store your cartridges upright in a cool, dark place.
Unlike a lot of other packaging for cannabis vape cartridges, Select has made it easy to remove the cartridge. Simply pull up on the top tab and the vape cartridge housing slides right out. Remove the soft plastic plug from the base of the vape cartridge.
On the bottom of every box is a removable label for you to adhere to your cartridge, to keep track of which of Select’s many strains you’re enjoying. They are easily removable, if you prefer the look of your vape cartridge without a label.
Gently screw into a 510-threaded cartridge vape device and enjoy!

Strawberry Banana Cannabis Oil
Using my Vessel vape pen, I tried some Select Elite cannabis vape oil in Strawberry Banana. This strain is a genetic cross between Banana Kush and the “Strawberry” phenotype of Bubble Gum.
This strain is known for its impressive resin production and high THC content. It induces pleasant, calming effects that enhance creativity and help create feelings of centered peace as it settles into the body.
I recently tried a similar strain in a Humboldt Farms Strawnana disposable vape, which by comparison, was a bit sweeter in taste. I find Select Elite Carts version to be mild in flavor, almost neutral in fact, and easy on the throat.
The lack of strawberry taste results in a more natural flavor due to the preserved cannabis terpenes, rather than added synthetic strawberry flavor.
