SANTA ROSA, Calif. —
Industry Processing Solutions, in conjunction with The Original Resinator, Compound Genetics, and Node labs, was recognized by the Emerald Cup, one of the world’s most esteemed cannabis competitions, for its Perzimmon #2 Live Dried flower. The strain won top honors in the Innovative Product: Consumable category, beating out many other entries to claim the first place trophy due to the specialized lyophilization drying method that was employed.
The winning Perzimmon #2 (Rainbow Cheddar x Gastro Pop) samples were harvested from Compound Genetics/Node Labs’ facility and first underwent a Cryo-Trim process, wherein the freshly harvested buds were trimmed live using liquid CO2 with bladeless trimming screens in an Original Resinator machine. After trimming, the buds were freeze dried and made ready for consumption, all within around 24 hours. This unique combination of trimming and freeze drying comprises the Crop-to-Cure method, which has been proven in laboratory testing to increase total cannabinoids and terpenes by as much as 10-15% (meaning a strain testing at 24% THC could test as high as 27%+ using Crop-to-Cure as opposed to traditional drying and curing techniques).
Industry Processing Solutions has also released a technical white paper on the Crop-to-Cure method, which can be found here for download.
“Winning this award is massively validating for a process we’ve been perfecting for years,” says TJ Arnovick, CEO and co-founder at Industry Processing Solutions. TJ continued, “In today’s industry, cultivators need every advantage they can get as the cannabis and hemp markets mature. By giving growers the ability to take their plants from the garden to consumers significantly faster and with actual increases in potency and quality, we’re excited to see live dried become sought after in the way solventless products have.”
Live dried flower utilizing Crop-to-Cure technology offers major benefits, including:
Significant reduction in the time it takes to bring a dried, smokeable flower to market
Proven increases in cannabinoids and terpenes, while preserving shape, size, color, and flavor, making “live dried” more commercially valuable
Better long term preservation of harvests by allowing cultivators to freeze their plants for up to a year plus, and process them on demand for maximum freshness
