The PreRoll-Er machine never use vibrations to transport cannabis, discover why it’s so important!
Once the cannabis is grinded, it’s highly fragile. When transported by vibration, the trichomes, also called pollen, can be detached from the particules of the grinded cannabis. The trichomes is the part of the flower that contain the highest THC.
When companies utilize vibrating conveyor, the heaviest particules move faster than the lighter ones. This result in an imbalance of heavy and light particules during the filling of the cones. Therefore, the THC rate will be wrong due to a lack of trichomes.
The producers needs to measure the level of THC in their grinded cannabis before filling the cones. If the producer intervenes in the mixing of the trichomes before and after the filling, there’ll be pre-rolls with a higher or lower rate of THC than indicated of the package.
As an example, a canadian leader producer of cannabis has been prosecuted by customers for a lower rate of THC than indicated on their labels, for this exact reason.
“There are ways to dramatically slow degradation of trichomes by carefully handling cannabis flowers both during propagation and post harvest. By limiting physical contact and agitation to the flowers themselves, trichomes may be preserved on the plant for longer periods of time.” (source: Leafly)
