Vape and Smoke Research

Develop consistent, high-quality inhalation products

Major industry concerns:

  • Toxic by-products during inhalation

  • Inconsistent cannabinoid concentrations

  • Decreasing flavor profile of terpenes & flavonoids

  • Malfunctioning and faulty vape hardware

Our Services

Analytical Testing

Our team has specialized methodologies and the expertise to help you make your product safer and more enjoyable. We help you quantify all compounds in the aerosols formed from your vape and/or joint and come up with better formulations.


Price is based on sampling conditions, analysis type, and if the vape has specialized hardware. These services start at $300 CAD depending on the number of sampling conditions and which types of analysis needed.

Product Development

Design the perfect pre roll or vape formulation using science. We can help you develop a product that is safer, more flavorful, and has consistent terpene and cannabinoid levels from the first puff to the last.


Pricing is evaluated on a Research Contract basis depending on the client's budget and product development stages needed.

Complimentary Consultation

We offer a complimentary consultation call with one of our scientists to discuss pricing and how our expertise and research can help you develop consistent, high-quality inhalation products.


THC Concentration Varies Throughout the Life Cycle of a Vape Cartridge

Our research shows that the amount of THC inhaled varies significantly throughout the life cycle of a single vape cartridge. We tested 6 different vapes bought on the Canadian cannabis market and analyzed the THC concentrations during the life cycle of each vape product.

Watch DELIC Labs’ CSO, Dr. Markus Roggen, discuss the findings from our latest vape and joint experiment.


Articles on Vape and Smoke Analysis

Vape injuries occurred in 2019 because of THC adulterated with tocopherols (a vitamin derivative.) To prevent some issues before market, a lab can test cannabis oil for certain contaminants to determine how toxic a vape pen is. But how does a lab quantify a stream of aerosolized vapor or smoke?
Ever wonder what smoke and vape tests are used for? #AskAnExpert
Our new services offer comprehensive insights into plant material, extracts, end-products and even the smoke/vapor by using state-of-the-art analytical instruments. By understanding the chemical fingerprint of the material, cannabis producers can eliminate impurities, adjust potencies, and optimize extraction processes before wasting money and resources on producing inconsistent end products. As a chemist I am really excited about adding NMR and high-res mass spectroscopy to the cannabis testing offerings
