Whitepaper: Cannabis series: Preheated Cartridge method for uniform aerosol in high viscosity oils

Whitepaper: Cannabis series

Vaping cannabis oil with a high cannabinoid content has proved challenging due to the high viscosity of the oil and the tendency for localised heating not to be sufficiently strong to deliver consistent aerosol.

The established method of loading a sample of cannabis oil (predominantly containing the lipid (-)-trans-delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol which is commonly referred to as THC) into a cartridge for vaping testing at Kaycha Laboratory (Denver Colorado) was to mildly heat the cannabis oil in an oven set at approximately 50°C before injecting the oil into the cartridge that was to be used.

This method overcame the high viscosity in many of the samples.
