Cannabis Farms offers a unique organic cannabis dehydration solution which not only dries cannabis within a day but also preserves the Cannabinoids and Terpenes during the drying process. The dehydration solutions offered by Cannabis Farms will allow commercial growers to dry cannabis within 24 hours from the time of harvest to when the process is completed at the specific moisture level desired. The solution consists of using a food-based organic product call Organi-Dry or Proti-Dry from Protein Solutions Group (PSG). The company has developed a unique and organic product/process that solves the Cannabis and AG industry’s need for an organic drying process that retains the most organic matter at the cellular level, its called the Protein Dried™ technology.
Current cannabis dehydration and drying methods involve either hang drying or introducing heat or freezing. Hang drying can take anywhere from 5 to 10 days to complete, plus extra time for curing. Faster methods like inducing heat or flash freezing change the cellular structure of organic material and can be expensive to implement. The Protein Dried™ technology, product, and the process is simple, fast, organic and preserves the essence of the flower, which is why we feel the industry will move away from these traditional methods of drying and look for better alternatives.
We feel this process captures the best expression of the plant at harvest versus introducing heat or freezing. Being an organic process (GRAS for Organi-dry and Proti-Dry is OMRI certified in the US), the cellular structure doesn’t change during dehydration, which then retains the most terpenes and cannabinoids and as a result turns into the highest crop value based on these percentages. The dehydration process is simple, cost-effective to implement and can be easily replicated year after year, which then creates industry standards for post-harvest processing. This will help pave the way for the industry to create best practices and standards for post-harvest solutions, thus allowing us to work towards certifications such as GMP and ISO standards for processing facilities and eventually offer Crop Loss Insurance.
As part of the Cannabis Farm’s team, Vin Maru predicts that the future pricing of cannabis and hemp from farming operations will be derived from a formula used to calculate the commodity value based on purity and percentages after extraction versus the weight of biomass. He feels that the Protein Dried™ technology retains the most cannabinoids and terpenes, which in turn should result in higher crop value based on the extracted value of the cannabis biomass (hemp or marijuana).
We are excited to be working with PSG and introducing the Organi-Dry and Proti-Dry products to the Cannabis Industry, the PSG’s Protein Dried™ technology is unique and we feel that it helps solves the industry’s challenges of processing and preserving large quantities of cannabis during the harvest window.
