Differentiating Cannabis Products with Viscosity Measurements

Download Application Note

Viscosity is a critical parameter when formulating cannabis oil products since it will impact both the processing
and performance. A common processing concern is the ability to consistently achieve accurate fill volumes so that manual correction is not required. Performance challenges can include device compatibility and failure
at extreme environmental temperatures. Leaking can occur at elevated temperatures and dispensing can be
difficult or limited in cold climates.

Quantifying the viscosity response to temperature can guide any necessary
modifications to the formulation composition, processing conditions, or application method to ensure

*Working with cannabis oils, it can be quit tough to measure at different temperatures. This application note will teach you how to extrapolate the temperatures especially when you currently do not have a viscosity measurement method or your method does not have temperature control capabilities.

1. How sensitive is viscosity change of cannabis oils to temperature?

Extremely sensitive! We have a couple more application notes where you can see this: 

- Cannabis

- Cannabis Dependence on Composition & Temperature

2. Can RheoSense viscometers handle solutions with little to no distillates?

Yep! We sure can, we have a couple methods including hts-VROC that can help when working with the thicker solutions.
