Trim Machine Or Trichome Killer?

Trim Machine Or Trichome Killer?

In a perfect world, all cannabis growers would prefer to hand trim their flowers. We know this. A lot of blood, sweat and tears go into getting your crop to harvest and the last thing a Grower wants is to put their choice flowers into a machine to be trimmed.

But 2021 is far from a perfect world. The harsh reality is that with current market conditions, paying to hand trim your flowers can be the final nail in the coffin of this brutal season. Here's the good news for Growers, trim machines are gentler than ever, can drastically reduce your trimming costs without killing your trichomes and won't ruin the bag appeal flowers require to sell at high value.

But don't just take our word for it. Keirton, a manufacturer of trimming and bucking equipment, in partnership with MB Labs and Caro Analytical Services, compared the potency test results of hand-trimmed flower with that of machine-trimmed product over two sample years (2018 and 2020). While the 2018 tests showed THC levels for machine-trimmed flower dropped by up to 3.8%, technological advancements and engineering upgrades saw that discrepancy slim down to 0.6% in 2020.

Technology has caught up and the quality of trimming machines has vastly improved. The use of a trimming machine, combined with a second pass of hand trimming at a fraction of the time, is how many Growers this season are pivoting. Don't let the stigma about trimming machines prevent you from realizing a guaranteed cost savings.
