You are probably wondering why would someone do this? Well, after getting out all the oil, you can refill it and use it repeatedly. If you do not want to use the cartridge you can always use the oil in another cartridge.
Now we get to an important question, is it safe to remove oil from a cartridge that is prefilled?
Some chambers can be dangerous to fiddle around with, that is why the first thing you need to do before starting with anything is to see what the ingredients of the oil are.
If there are ingredients like PG or Glycerol’s it is unsafe to open it with direct heat because a toxic chemical named formaldehyde will be created.
If the cartridge ingredients contain just pure CO2 oil, it is overall then safe to reuse. To be safe it's best to consult a medical professional regarding the ingredients of the oils.
The process of removing the oil
By using a syringe, you will not only protect the cartridge but the oil too. You can get this kit from a specialized oil recovery kit.
