Research Study Shows on How to Limit Indoor Marijuana Smoke Odors and Particles

(PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Currently, 18 states have laws allowing the use of medical marijuana, with another 6 more pending legislation. With the growing number of legal cannabis users, thought it was important to commission a study on the best ways to filter particulate and odors indoors, in order to protect those around pot smokers.

The study by analyzed the particulates in the air after marijuana was smoked in a central location, using various methods to puff. The particulates were then analyzed using a Fluke 985 Particle Counter to determine which smoking methods were the worst for indoor air quality by measuring particles ranging from .3 microns to 1 micron in size.

Puffs were taken using the following standard methods of smoking: joint, bong, bowl, and vaporizer. In addition to the standard methods of smoking, testing was also performed on “sploofs” which are homemade smoking devices. The complete results of the study are published here.

As the use of marijuana continues to increase in the United States, it is important for smokers to take others into consideration and use methods that limit particulate and odors released into the air after smoking. Many people are still offended by the odor and if people are going to smoke marijuana (legally), they need to be aware of this research.
