Wait What? Microwaving a Blunt like Snoop Dogg?
Did you know that Snoop Dogg microwaves his blunts for 11 seconds prior to smoking it? According to Snoop, it is meant to “trap all the flavors” inside the blunt. Even though this is by far not “new news”, it was some thing that sparked my interest. Does microwaving a blunt truly improve the potency and flavor of a blunt?
Let’s take a gander at the logic
Firstly, we know that cannabis, in its flower kind, has THCa. This is the acid kind of the cannabinoid we adore to smoke. This is also not psychoactive in this state. For the THCa to be converted to Delta-9-THC, we demand roughly 104 ºC (219 ºF) and about 15-20 mins of “baking time”.
What this does is it turns the acid kind of THC into a psychoactive kind of THC. We do this normally for edibles and so forth.
A microwave, on the other hand, does not create “heat” but rather “excited the molecules” inside what ever you spot inside it. Based on the wattage of the microwave, you can have a assortment of diverse “temperatures” it can attain.
Generally, individuals have 900-watt microwaves at dwelling and in all likeliness, Snoop makes use of a 900-watt microwave as properly. At 900-watts, the microwave will typical roughly 104º C, which means that technically it would be capable to activate the THC inside the blunt.
This would imply that when you light it up, you currently have (at the incredibly least) some THC activated inside the blunt. Also, blunt wraps are commonly incredibly soft due to the wetness of the wrap. Obtaining a blunt wrap also dry can trigger it to break.
Snoop claims that placing it in the microwave “tightens it up” and “locks up the flavors”. It tends to make sense then to place the blunt in the microwave due to the reality that the initially issue that would be evaporated from the blunt will be the water particles inside the paper. This will right away make it dryer and trigger a tiny quantity of shrinkage.
Inside this logic, it does make it “tighter”.
But what about “locking in the flavors?”
The Flavor of Cannabis
The flavor and aroma of cannabis are due to the presence of flavonoids and terpenes. The diverse flavonoids and terpenes also react to heat. When the molecules are excited, they will commence to evaporate. Even so, thinking about that you have a blunt wrap about the cannabis, the vapor wouldn’t be capable to escape the “tube” and evaporate into the air.
This implies that in all likeliness, the flavor does get trapped in the blunt. In reality, it possibly alterations some of the chemistry of the flavonoids and terpenes which could play a part in growing the perceived flavor of the weed.
Is there any science we can appear at?
Fuck no! This is all about speculation.
Why need to we care if it cannot be confirmed?
It is not that it cannot be confirmed, rather, who is going to devote income on attempting to figure out regardless of whether or not a blunt placed in the microwave increases potency. There is no scientific neighborhood that will engage with this sort of investigation.
The cause you need to care is simply because one particular of the most prominent weed smokers of the contemporary age has been undertaking this considering the fact that forever. Snoop is not an amateur when it comes to smoking. If he says it gets you larger and “traps the flavor”, then it possibly does.
At the incredibly least, you get a blunt that is a bit crispier than you would routinely smoke. At the most, you get a blunt that tastes improved and gets you larger.
As you people know, I do not just create about these subjects devoid of experimenting initially. As a result, I decided to smoke a “prepared blunt” according to the Snoop Methodology. To do this, I applied weed I have been smoking for a whilst, which means my tolerance was pretty higher to that unique strain. This permitted me to measure the effectiveness of the technique considering the fact that I was currently applied to the strain I was smoking.
Moreover, I couldn’t smoke the blunt if I smoked all through the day. This meant that I had to space out two blunts more than two days of the very same weed to see if there was any impact.
I initially smoked the “unprepared blunt” in the morning. As was anticipated, I got pretty higher by the time I reached a quarter of the blunt.
The subsequent day, I ready the blunt according to the Snoop Methodology. It took me only a couple of tokes to really feel as higher as I did the preceding day when I reached a quarter of the blunt. In reality, it was closer to 1/8th of the blunt, when I felt the very same level of higher. The taste was diverse and the blunt burned a lot improved.
In conclusion, I “think” it does truly improve potency and flavor. Even though I didn’t do a clinical trial on the methodology, I think that microwaving your blunts is a issue to think about. Do not think me, replicate the experiment and see for your self!
