Cultivating cannabis is not easy. The plant relies on very specific conditions to not only grow and thrive, but to ensure that the result is potent, fragrant, and free of contaminants and pests. These hurdles continue after harvest, with drying and curing presenting its own set of challenges to product quality, including potential for contamination, loss of terpenes, and degradation of valuable phytocannabinoids like THC.
With so many potential avenues for failure, it’s important to identify problem areas and address them before things go awry. Knowing your proverbial enemy as a cultivator can end up saving you time and money that you can leverage in other aspects of your operation.
Your drying room is one of the final stops in your cannabis’ journey from seed to shelf. While it may be tempting to rest on your laurels this far into the process, failing to properly maintain your drying room can cause major problems with the final product. To help address these problems before they wreck your next yield, the following are six drying room issues you should actively work to mitigate.
As we’ve highlighted here, a lot can go wrong in the cannabis drying room. Conditions can be thrown off, timelines may get crunched, and the lengthy drying and curing period only invites more opportunities for things to go wrong. With Cryo Cure, skipping the entire process is now possible – and with stellar results.
Our patent-pending Cryo Cure machines trim down the drying and curing process to as little as 13 hours. Our machines take up little room when compared to the real estate and infrastructure necessary to dry cannabis the traditional way. One machine – which can be maintained by any HVAC maintenance professional – takes up a fraction of the square footage, and one of our models is on wheels so it can be moved from place to place as needed. Talk about a time-saver and a space-saver!
By applying a precise calculation of time, temperature, and pressured to freshly harvested cannabis, Cryo Cure produces smokable flower with stabilized phytocannabinoid content and a preserved terpene profile that retains up to 95% of terpenes. The result is an unforgettable customer experience that dispensaries have labeled “platinum tier” – one that simply cannot be replicated by any other traditional dry and cure or cannabis freeze drying technology.
