About freeze-drying cannabis

1Can you freeze dry marijuana? What about hemp?
Freeze drying isn’t just for removing water from fruits and vegetables! Freeze-drying is an excellent way to preserve cannabis and hemp at the peak of freshness, producing a flavorful and potent flower with cannabinoids preserved, terpenes enhanced, and trichomes intact.
2Can you use a regular freeze-drying machine to cure cannabis?
While it is not uncommon for cannabis consumers to use a freeze-drying machine at home, these devices are not designed or programmed to preserve cannabis or hemp. (However, Cryo Cure machines can also be used to freeze-dry flowers and food.)
3What is the main difference between Cryo Cure machines and a regular freeze-drying machine?
Cryo Cure machines utilize a patent-pending process fine-tuned specifically for cannabis and hemp, resulting in a final product that we call “Cryo Cured” cannabis. Regular freeze-drying machines have no such settings.
4Does freeze-dried cannabis or hemp maintain its integrity?
Yes, it does! The freeze-drying process stabilizes the compounds found in cannabis and hemp, ensuring that the final product is highly potent and rich in cannabinoids and terpenes.

About the Cryo Cure process

1How is the Cryo Cure process different than regular freeze drying?
Cryo Curing is a patent-pending process that applies to a specific range of temperatures and pressure, tested and proven to perfectly preserve cannabis and hemp in its natural state. Traditional freeze-drying methods pull out valuable cannabinoids and terpenes. Cryo Cure is designed to preserve trichomes, terpenes, and cannabinoids, resulting in a more potent and flavorful cannabis or smokable hemp flower.
2Can a consumer tell the difference between Cryo Cured cannabis and flower dried traditionally?
The difference is immediate! First and foremost, there’s no shrinkage, so buds look bigger and more beautiful. Cryo Cured cannabis also boasts a longer shelf life if properly stored in air-tight containers. Best of all, the smoking experience is unparalleled: inhalation is smooth, the experience is uplifting, and the product tastes and smells exceptional, thanks to Cryo Cure’s terpene preservation.
3How long is the CryoCure cannabis drying and curing process from start to finish?
The entire Cryo Cure cannabis curing process takes 24 to 36 hours, depending on the amount and density of material inside the machine. No matter how you slice it, Cryo Cure shaves weeks off the traditional curing process.
4Have cannabis experts reviewed Cryo Cure? What’s the verdict?
Cryo Cure is proudly endorsed by Danny Danko, Senior Cultivation Editor, High Times Magazine; “Ganja Guru” Ed Rosenthal, co-founder of High Times Magazine and a longtime cannabis author, cultivator, and activist; and world-renown cannabis breeder and advocate Rick Naya. You can watch their endorsements on the Testimonials page.

3Can you build a custom machine for my facility?
Yes! We can build a Cryo Cure marijuana curing machine for any size facility. Please contact CryoCure for more information.
4How long is the freeze process?
We recommend 10 to 12 hours freeze time at negative 20 to negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
5What if I have more product than the machine can hold?
No problem! Your flower can be frozen independently from our machines in a separate deep freezer or a walk-in freezer that goes to negative 20 to negative 30 degrees Fahrenheit. In this case, the drying cycle time is halved to approximately 12 hours. With this methodology, you can Cryo Cure double the amount of product in a 24-hour period. We offer a line of customized walk-in freezers; contact us for details.
6Does cannabis need to be wet trimmed before it is put into the machine?
If you are doing large runs where cannabis buds will be stacked on top of each other, we recommend wet trimming before loading into the Cryo Cure machine. The sugar leaves tend to act like hook-and-loop closures, which makes stacked buds stick together once Cryo Cured. If you choose to keep the sugar leaves on, simply arrange the buds in a uniform layer.
7Do you lose total crop weight when using a Cryo Cure cannabis freeze dry machine versus traditional cure?
No. Our patent-pending process leaves your flower with a perfect moisture content of 8 to 12%. Though the cannabis looks larger than the stated scale amount, remember that there is no shrinkage to the flower. This means 1 gram in weight is double the size it would be if traditionally cured.
8How low can the moisture content go?
Cryo Cure machine presets can bring down moisture content to 1 percent.
