Top 3 Reasons to Use an Industrial Cannabis Grinder

Why Use an Industrial Cannabis Grinder ?

When scaling production, you want a grinder which is fast and efficient for large volume. However, keep in mind that speed is not the only or even the most important consideration. There is a fine balance between speed and non-destructive grinding. Using a quality, industrial cannabis grinder or shredder is an invaluable part of this overall process.

When it comes to grinding your cannabis for that smooth, slow and even-burning experience from your pre-rolls to maintaining your bud’s potency for extractions, the proper grind is perhaps one of the most important and overlooked aspect in the process. Trichomes are delicate and and must be carefully processed to preserve integrity. Proper grinding maintains the flavor and aroma of your marijuana strain. It takes the upmost care in the grinding process to keep this potency intact for the better tasting weed, which is well worth it!

1. A Quality Industrial Cannabis Grinder Saves Money

Let’s face it, to assemble pre-rolls or produce extractions on a large scale, at some point your operation will need some type of a higher output grinder. Using a commercial cannabis grinder is the easiest and fastest method to get the most out of your flower. There are many types and styles of grinders available.

Quality commercial cannabis grinders such as the STM Canna Mini-Revolution are built specifically to process cannabis and can carefully grind one pound every few minutes and deliver the most consistent, analogous grind optimal for evenly packed pre-rolls and extraction.

The Mini-Revolution also keeps stems and seeds intact for easy shifting after grinding insuring more potency in the final product.  For larger throughput, the STM Revolution 2.0 industrial cannabis grinder is your best option and uses a dual-blade oscillating system to create scissor like cuts to preserve product integrity.

2. Non-Aggressive Grinding Produces Much Better Results

There is a vast difference when it comes to not only the quality of the cannabis grinder, consistency of grind and preservation of potency. A popular machine is the whip type cannabis shredders, which use plastic whips, the same as on your weed eater, to shred your product. Weed eaters are for grass, not your precious flower. Whips are not very careful in the method employed to separate the bud. They are fast, but there is a price to pay for speed in reduced quality. Don’t shred, grind!

Another group of commercial cannabis grinders are either repurposed from other industries or imported and white labeled from China. While these look like commercial grade quality and may do the basic job, the quality of the components and the long-lasting durability will not be on par with a machine specifically designed for cannabis use. The end result may ultimately suffer not only from the lower quality of vital components such as motor which controls the grinding speed but also the type of cutting mechanism or blade which dictates the overall cut quality.

Most people know to achieve the best results from grinding your weed depends on the quality of your flower in the first place which is 100% correct. Garbage in equals garbage out. Particle size does matter.

However, a little considered factor such as aggressive grinding which increases friction and heat and can wreak havoc on your final result. Fast grinding may save your time but is pulverizing and degrading your product worth saving a few minutes? Many marijuana grinders are built for speed and not for preserving trichomes.

Aggressive shredding creates heat which contributes to the destruction of trichomes and potency of your flower. Slow and steady wins the race which is true for many things, especially grinding your flower.

3. Increase Profits and Maximum Potency

Many grinders on the market are so-called “cannabis shredders” and shred your product destroying vital terpenes and cannabinoids thus lowering the quality and most of all, the potency of your final product. Do yourself a huge favor and purchase a quality cannabis grinder designed especially for preservation of vital terpenes and cannabinoids.

Getting Started with the Mini-Rocketbox Pre-Roll Machine

Getting Started with the Mini-Rocketbox Pre-Roll Machine 

The Mini-Rocketbox is preferred by processors and dispensaries for its compact size, durability, and pre-roll filling efficiency. The Mini securely fits on any flat tabletop surface by adhering with a heavy-duty suction cup. With the ability to fill and pack 143 joints in each cycle, the Mini-Rocketbox is certain to increase productivity and save money on labor costs. 

Operating the Mini-Rocketbox properly is pivotal to ensure a smooth, consistent fill. Before starting, check your surroundings and remove any objects on the same table as the machine. The intense vibrations may cause objects in the same workspace to shift and move.

Placement of the Mini-Rocketbox

Avoid placing the Mini-Rocketbox pre-roll machine in the middle of a table. The vibrations will reverberate back through the four legs of the machine, causing inconsistencies with filling and packing. It’s recommended to place the machine on the side of a table as it’s sturdier, less flexible, and focuses the vibrations to the inside of the machine.

Leveling Creates Consistency

Verify that the Mini-Rocketbox is level with a leveling tool. This will ensure that the product is moving evenly across the top of the machine. If the machine is sloped in any direction, your material will move in the same direction, potentially causing weight inconsistencies with the pre-rolls. 

Rocketbox Table Leveling

Fill with Pre-Rolled Cones

After you’ve properly placed and leveled the Mini-Rocketbox, you can begin filling the bottom tray with cones. All pre-rolled cones should be sitting at roughly the same height throughout the tray. Keep in mind that cones will sit differently depending on the size of the tray used.

Optimal Vibration Frequencies for Packing Pre-Rolls

Turn on your Mini-Rocketbox, we recommend starting on high power. In this range, the machine vibrates just like the RocketBox and achieves a pack with the most optimal amount of vibration. Notice the low-frequency sound produced when the dial is turned in between “I” and “G” in “HIGH”. A higher-pitched frequency will be heard once Max Speed is achieved.

TIP: The machine will not vibrate the same without the Top Tray and Bottom Tray screwed down into the machine. When testing placement and vibration, be sure to test with the Top Tray and Bottom Tray together, with the washers and wing nuts fully secure. This will allow for optimal vibration research and development prior to filling and running the machine.

Selecting the Right Paper for Your Pre-Rolled Cones

Selecting the Right Paper for Your Pre-Rolled Cones

Pre-rolled cones made with paper are by far the most popular used today for cannabis and other smoking herbs. These cones make filling and packing pre-rolls quick and easy. There are various types of paper available to meet the needs of cannabis smokers. The choice between wood, rice, hemp, and other fibers depends on taste, smoking speed, bearing capacity, and other factors.

Using a quality pre-rolled cone can make the rolling process consistent, much simpler, and straightforward.

Thanks to the introduction of the STM Rocketbox pre-roll machine, it was developed to maximize joint production and significantly reduce labor costs. Able to roll 453 pre-rolled cones in 3 minutes, the Rocketbox is the pinnacle of pre-roll machines.

Each type of rolling paper has its characteristics that attract different types of smokers.

White and Brown Papers

Rolling papers can have different porosities to control ventilation and burning rate. Also, the paper may contain additional substances that reduce combustion, stabilize the paper, smoke, and ash. White rolling papers generally have a chemical appearance due to calcium chloride or carbonate, which contributes to delay combustion.

Wood Pulp Paper

The wood pulp paper is the most widely used in rolling, and they have been around for over a century. They can also be mixed with other fibers, and their consistency makes handling easier. The wood pulp is solid, and the realistic texture of this paper makes them practical for beginners because they retain their shape well, even in the presence of low humidity or sweaty hands. Pulp papers generally have an average burn rate.

Rice Paper

The best rice papers are made with natural ingredients, which mean they are mostly pressed and processed rice. These papers are generally thinner than others. They’re less harsh on the lungs, however, it can take little effort to run. This smooth paper may not stick well between your fingers and is quite vulnerable to certain conditions, especially in the humid air.

Hemp

Its color is mostly light brown, as cannabis users generally don’t like the bleaching process. Hemp papers are thicker and harder than rice papers, offering excellent adhesion when rolled. However, they have a similar tendency to absorb (and eventually release) moisture. They have an average burn rate and go out less often than rice papers.

Start maximizing your pre-roll production

Choosing the right quality of paper for pre-rolled cones is essential for the production process, as this will determine the end product of your joints.

STM offers the highest quality pre-rolled cones in a variety of paper types, colors, and sizes to meet your business’s needs. All of our cones are compatible with the RocketBox and Mini-Rocketbox machines.
