The Silent Menace: Mold Testing Failure

Defeating the Silent Menace – How Cann Drying Systems and GMP Standards & Practices Tackle Cannabis Mold Testing Failures

In the world of cannabis cultivation, mold testing failures are worse than nightmares. You’ve likely heard stories about it happening to others, but it’s a whole different story when it strikes your dry and cure. Mold testing failures have plagued the cannabis industry for years, causing growers endless frustration and financial losses. 

What’re your major concerns?

Airflow control? Contaminants entering the dry space? Sanitation practices?

Fret no more. 

With Cann Drying Systems and our adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), we’re here to change the game.

The Stealthy Intruder: Mold Testing Failures

Mold isn’t just an inconvenience; it’s a silent menace that can destroy crops, disrupt operations, and damage your reputation. Mold testing failures are the harsh wake-up call for many cultivators. These failures not only result in the loss of valuable product but also pose health risks to consumers. They’re an issue that can no longer be ignored.

Shortly after California protocols were established, only 20% of batches were passing according to The Orange County Register.

We saw it again recently with the contentious debate around aspergillus testing taking place in Oregon.

One of our recent blogs also touched on the staggering amount of product failing testing in Canada this past year.

Cann Drying Systems and GMP: Your Shield Against Mold

As 2023 comes to a close, best position yourself for a fruitful 2024 by staying ahead of regulatory changes such as the potential shift to Schedule III. Purpose-built climate control systems capable of achieving and maintaining target environmental conditions consistently will become critical for product quality standardization.

Our commitment to GMP practices is what sets us apart. We’ve designed our systems to not only meet but exceed the stringent standards of GMP. This ensures that our drying solutions provide a controlled and hygienic environment that eliminates the potential for microclimate formation, a common cause of mold growth in the dry room.

The Technology Behind the Transformation:

  • Laminar Airflow: We’ve harnessed the power of laminar airflow, which produces indirect, uniform distribution of gentle airflow which preserves trichome quality and results in homogenous moisture removal. Say goodbye to manual crop rotation and uneven distribution of airflow which creates conditions conducive to mold growth. With Cann Drying Systems, the air flows consistently, ensuring a precisely controlled and mold-resistant environment. 
  • Closed Air-Circuit Design: Our vapor sealed, closed air-circuit design prevents pests from infiltrating your drying space, safeguarding your precious crop from pest infestation and contaminant introduction.
  • UV-C Airflow & Coil Sanitation System: Our cutting-edge optional UV-C system disinfects 95%+ of microbial contaminants from spreading through the air during the dry cycle. This not only ensures product safety but also improves overall air quality.
  • Powdery Mildew Mitigation: The UV-C sanitation system also aids in an 83% reduction in powdery mildew, mitigating spread and crop loss. This means higher yields and a healthier bottom line.
  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency: Our systems go the extra mile by eliminating biofilm build-up on the coil system, improving overall energy efficiency and reducing operational costs.

The Result: A Mold-Free Future

Schedule III may not be the change we all had hoped for, but it seems like the change that we may end up getting. The drying process is no longer something that we will have the ability to treat as an afterthought. The businesses that focus on bringing the dry room up to a higher standard now will be best positioned for success in the ever-changing future of our industry.

With Cann Drying Systems, you’re transforming an art to a science. You’re not just investing in a drying solution; you’re investing in a mold-free future. Say farewell to the devastating consequences of mold testing failures and embrace a new era of clean, high-quality cannabis.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Make the shift to Cann Drying Systems and experience the peace of mind that comes with knowing your product is protected against the silent menace of mold. Say yes to mold-free cannabis and a brighter, more successful future.
