Croptober: Quality and Efficiencies
2023, Your best harvest yet
The cannabis post-harvest process is essential to ensuring that your product is of the highest quality and produced efficiently. However, it can also be time-consuming and labor-intensive (especially if you’re taking trips to Home Depot to repair or replace components of your DIY dry room). It’s time to increase quality and efficiencies. Automating the post-harvest process can save you time, prevent microbial growth and crop loss, as well as improve quality on a consistent basis. Actsoft writes that, “By leveraging technology, cultivators consistently produce high-quality cannabis while reducing costs and limiting environmental impact.”
How a Cann Drying System can save you time this Croptober:
- Precise environmental control: Cann Drying Systems allow you to precisely control the temperature, humidity, and airflow in the drying environment. This ensures that your cannabis dries at the optimal rate, without over-drying or under-drying. Check out our controls to learn more.
- Uniform drying: Cann Drying Systems utilizes laminar airflow to circulate air around the buds, which helps to ensure that they dry evenly throughout. This airflow is beneficial whether you are hanging or tray racking this harvest. This prevents some buds from drying faster than others, which can lead to microclimate development. In some cases, microclimates can cause total crop loss due to microbial testing failure. Check out some of our favorite options in our Cann Shop for both hanging and trays.
- Reduced manual labor: Cann Drying Systems automate many of the tasks involved in drying cannabis- such as the need for crop rotation, manual burping of curing containers, and much more. Our turnkey solution frees up your time to focus on other tasks, such as harvesting, packaging, and product development.
How a Cann drying system can prevent microclimate growth:
Microclimates are small areas within the drying environment that have different temperature and humidity levels than the rest of the environment. Microclimates can be caused by a variety of factors, such as uneven airflow or the presence of moisture pockets.
Mold can destroy your flowers and make it unsafe to consume. Cann Drying Systems are designed to prevent microclimate growth by maintaining optimal temperature and humidity levels and circulating air utilizing the principles of laminar airflow. This helps to ensure that the entire drying environment is uniform, which prevents microclimates from forming, and saving operators thousands of dollars annually. High Times reports that throughout 2021 in Canada, “over 425 million grams, a full 26% of the unpackaged dried flower produced was destroyed, along with all the resources that went into growing it, leading to an environmental nightmare for a supposedly green industry.
How a Cann drying system can improve quality:
By drying in a controlled environment, Cann Drying Systems can help to improve the quality of the finished product.
Our commercial cannabis purpose-built dry rooms help to preserve the potency, flavor, and aroma of the cannabis so your customers have the same high-quality experience every time they use your product.
Automating the post-harvest process with a Cann System can save you time, prevent microclimate growth, and improve the quality of your finished product.
