ASTM D8342/D8342M-21

Standard Test Method for Measuring the Probability of a Full Length Burn on a Cannabis/Hemp Pre-roll

1.1This fire-test-response standard provides a standard measure of the probability of a cannabis/hemp pre-roll positioned on a substrate to generate enough heat to continue burning and thus potentially cause ignition of bedding or upholstered furniture.

1.2This test method shall be applicable to pre-roll units that are intended for personal inhalation by means of combustion and contain dried herbal material from any type of a cannabis plant, that is, cannabis/hemp. For the sake of brevity, the term "cannabis" shall be used henceforth to refer to any type of cannabis plant (cannabis/hemp).

1.3This test method shall be applicable to pre-rolls that burn along the length of a cannabis pre-roll column.

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

1.5Pre-roll preparation and sampling shall be made using Practice D8343/D8343M.

1.6Units - 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.

1.7This 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.

1.8This 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.
