When processing cannabis, professional growers know that it’s vital to adhere to a number of strict guidelines so that you end up with a great crop come harvest time. While we couldn’t possibly hope to cover them all in a single post, here are three of the most important:
- Climate. First of all, the processing room’s climate is crucial. When processing cannabis, growers need to implement practices that will ensure the moisture level of your product does not fluctuate (either up or down) much once it has been through the curing process. Once your company has decided what you want your cannabis’ moisture content should be, the humidity and temperature of the room should be monitored carefully.
- Air filtration. You should also pay attention to the filtration of your processing room’s air. Doing so can help keep your cannabis from being contaminated and make sure that you or your workers don’t suffer from any respiratory issues. This is because processing cannabis produces lots of dust and other particulates.
- Contamination. In addition to controlling climate and air quality, you should also require your staff to use a hairnet, mask and gloves at all times. Wearing these can help eliminate contamination by e. coli and salmonella.
These are just a few of the things you need to do to ensure that your cannabis crop is safely and successfully processed.
