For all British Columbia + Saskatchewan cannabis retail stores, the 20% Vapour Product Tax (VPT) applies to 510 thread batteries, which are used with vape cartridges. Since the VPT applies to some products and not others (such as dry herb vaporizers), it is important that you select the correct Product Category for the accessory in Buddi.


This is found in the Admin Portal > Accessory Products page. You can type in '510' or 'battery' in the search field to bring up a list of products that are applicable (provided that the product listing has been named accordingly).


The correct Product Category for 510 batteries is Accessory Vape: Concentrate.





  • Please remember to select the correct category each time a new 510 battery gets added into inventory; it cannot be left blank either.
