Standard Practice for Measuring the Physical Properties of Cannabis/Hemp Pre-rolls

Significance and Use

4.1 This practice will specify the baseline physical properties of a pre-roll, including the weight of cannabis herbal material in the pre-roll, the length of the pre-roll, and the diameter of the pre-roll.

4.2 This practice will provide clarity on the physical properties of cannabis pre-rolls.

Scope

1.1 This practice is intended to be used to identify the physical properties of a cannabis/hemp pre-roll.

1.2 This practice shall apply to pre-rolls made using herbal material(s) from any type of a cannabis plant (that is, cannabis/hemp), regardless of the cannabinoid content. For the sake of brevity, the term “cannabis” shall be used henceforth to refer to any type of cannabis plant (cannabis/hemp).

1.3 This practice helps to provide clarity on pre-roll preparation and sampling to identify, measure, and report the length, diameter, and weight of cannabis pre-rolls.

1.4 This practice shall not be applicable to infused cannabis pre-rolls, which are outside the scope of this standard.

1.5 Units—The values stated in either SI units or United States Customary Units (USC Units) are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Metric units will be stated as standard and USC units will be shown in brackets relative to the metric units.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.7 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
