About the event


Welcome to the groundbreaking "Science of Smokability" study, a joint venture by the Cannabis Research Coalition (CRC), The Network of Applied Pharmacognosy (NAP) and Controlled Chemistry. Our study dives deep into the fascinating world of cannabis, exploring how cultivation practices, flower properties, and post-harvest handling influence its smokability and desirable attributes.

Have you ever wondered what makes cannabis smoke smooth, consistent, or how different cultivation practices affects ash color and lightability? 

Join us as we unravel these mysteries in a multiphase research project that bridges the gap between cultivators, medical practitioners, and consumers.

Led by Dr. Allison Justice of CRC and the Hemp Mine, alongside Dr. Riley Kirk and Dr. Miyabe Shields from NAP, this study focuses on the complete cannabis journey - from seed to smoke. Our research will examine physical metrics like ash characteristics, carbohydrate changes, nitrosamines and smoke composition, complemented by community feedback on taste, heaviness, and overall effects. This holistic approach aims to correlate specific cultivation and post-harvest practices with desirable smoke qualities.

This unique partnership strategically connects the cannabis industry, academia, and consumers, pushing towards higher-quality medicine and sustainable, predictable cultivation metrics. Whether you're interested in the chemistry of the plant, its effects on the body, or the cultivation process, your participation will provide invaluable insights.

We're looking for volunteers to participate in human trials, starting with exploring the effect of water activity on various aspects like smoothness, ash color, and lightability. If you're passionate about cannabis science and eager to contribute to a study that seeks to enhance product quality and consistency in the cannabis industry, we invite you to sign up.

Your participation will not only contribute to significant scientific discovery but also help shape the future of cannabis cultivation and consumption. 

Join us on this intriguing journey from seed to sale to consumer experience by signing up today. While we're seeking a minimal donation of $10-$15 to help with shipping and material costs, there's a chance these expenses might be covered by a sponsor in the near future. 

Currently, we're on the lookout for a financial sponsor(s) to support our multiphase/multi year study. Brands interested in gaining significant exposure (because these researchers also are social media influencers in the cannabis and academic space) and willing to fund our research are encouraged to contact for potential sponsorship opportunities. 

Please note, we won't request any payment during the registration process. Payment will only be sought when we're set to start the human trials. 

The focus here will be on pre-rolls.  Water content- Elements in excess-  Carbohydrate change - Nitrosimines


Thank you for your interest and support!
