Researchers at DELIC Labs recently published a study that analyzed how the size of crushed cannabis flowers found in today’s cannabis joints affects consumers when smoking.
DELIC Labs was founded in 2018 by Dr. Markus Roggen and Prof. Glen Samis as a licensed cannabis and psilocybin research laboratory that “aims to add fundamental scientific insight to the field of cannabis and mushroom production.” rice field.

The aim of the study, Roggen said, is to better understand the science behind cannabis consumption. “Quantitative studies on joint smoking are lacking. We want to understand what happens during inhalation in terms of chemistry,” Roggen said in an interview. Scientific American.
DELIC Labs presented the results in a PowerPoint presentation. Canadian Chemistry Conferences and Exhibitions Vancouver, Canada in June. The presentation began at 4:20 pm with a lighthearted header of ‘Let’s Shine a Light for Science’ as an introduction before delving further into the subject matter.
The presentation explained that more than 209 million people worldwide consume cannabis, with about 70% choosing joints as their preferred method of consumption. Researchers set out to investigate how particle size affects the amount of cannabinoids delivered by smoking.
The researchers utilized a coffee grinder to consistently crush cannabis flowers to sizes of 1, 3, and 5 millimeters (mm) in diameter. This study utilized the Cambustion Smoke Cycle Simulator device to measure and record joint life stages as initiation, middle, and termination.
The researchers concluded that a 1 mm particle size produces stronger puffs than 3 or 5 mm particles. However, they also said that “because of the 5 mm grain size, the joints were more durable regardless of the flowers used,” suggesting that the “improved joint structure” could lead to a better consumer experience. I came to think that it leads to
Researchers determined that THC joint intake ranged from 0.09mg to 0.88mg per puff. They noted that the 1 mm joint released his highest average amount of THC per puff, around 0.67 mg, while the 5 mm joint released slightly less, 0.51 mg.
For CBD joints, however, researchers found it delivered a range of 2.3mg to 6.1mg per puff. According to Roggen, the study yielded some very interesting results. “The amount of cannabinoids in your mouth is higher with CBD than with THC.” Roggen said.. “I can’t explain it, but I’m very interested.”
Scientific American I also spoke with Professor Robert Strongin of Portland State University, who is not involved in the DELIC Labs research. According to Strongin, the results of this study could lead to more effective and precise administration methods for medical cannabis patients. “This information may be particularly useful for medical cannabis patients and clinicians where dose control and consistency are key issues.” Strongin said.
DELIC Labs concluded the presentation with a deeper dive into the research results and how they differ from kief, oil, kief and oil, or terpene popper rolled infusion joints and cannabis mixed with tobacco. requires strongin expertise.
Ultimately, DELIC Labs calls for further investigation into “sidestreams, aerosol particle size, exhaust temperature, particles,” and beyond cannabinoids and terpenes.
Although not many studies have done exactly the same as DELIC Labs and its latest findings, these results may prompt other researchers to investigate. Earlier in January 2019, researchers at the Institute for Forensic Medicine at the University of Bern found that joints waste 300% more THC than dabbing.of April 2019the National Institute on Drug Abuse announced that it is accepting applications for contractors winding thousands of joints.
