Which type of filter to choose? - We examined which filter cleans the most THC

Apparently, few people use cigarette filters (sponges) to smoke joints. Are these filters suitable for cannabis use? What is the absorption index of THC and the rest of the active components? Answer and verification ...

The classic seal in "cardboard"

The joint is the most common way of smoking weed, either 49% according to a recognized survey. The filter is therefore the basic element to consider. Most marijuana users tend to use a piece of cardboard, today there are different types of filters and at the head of these, the filter "sponge" whose sale exploded with the tobacco market.

The "sponge" filter with cigarette

The most common question among consumers is whether this "sponge" (cigarette) filter absorbs more THC than carton filters. And if so, how many? To meet this challenge and push the study to the maximum, in addition to the comparison between the sponge filter and the filter cardboard we have added glass filters, charcoal filters and ivory filters.

Glass filters

Study on the absorption of THC

To verify the amount of THC absorbed by each of the filters, an analytical laboratory connected a pipe to a suction pump through which dozens of joints were "inhaled". Each joint contained 0.25 grams of cannabis at 14% THC content. The same test was done also via a water pipe. The test results leave no doubt; the THC residues were taken at the outlet, once purified by the filters.

Tests carried out via a suction pump

In answer to the original question is what the sponge filter absorbs THC? Finally, yes, and until 4x times more than the cardboard filter. Thus, the filter cigarette and filter cardboard absorb more than the carbon filter and the glass filter, and in the last position that the filter in ivory (or ceramic). Results of the absorption indices:

  • sponge: 4.2
  • Carton: 1.0
  • glass & charcoal: 0.4
  • Ivory & ceramic filter: 0.2
Carbon Filters

The THC absorption index is not the only measure in choosing a filter. In addition, comfort and taste often take precedence over how to smoke.

The big winner, the ivory filter

It's important to know what kind of filter you want to use your marijuana, and which one fits you best ... So, no secret, you'll have to test them all.
