INTRODUCING A NEW INDUSTRY STANDARD IN DRYING AND SANITIZING
We have done extensive research to develop a technology that accelerates drying time without the plant material being damaged and without the complications that other methods present. Simply place your freshly harvested cannabis and all other herbs in the dHydronator, turn it on and in 12-14 hours your herbs will be dried to industry humidity standards. We believe that applications for this product in the cannabis industry are widespread and can accommodate the needs of cultivators, dispensaries and cannabis consumers. The patent pending dHydronator technology is fully scalable and could be made to accommodate a wide range of quantities and processes. We have a working prototype that has been tested, and prior to commercial release we intend to upgrade the technology and visual components to meet marketplace demand.
LABORATORY PROVEN TECHNOLOGY
Over the past two years we have created two generations of the dHydronator® with built-in SanitiZen® technology which have been subjected to rigorous independent laboratory testing. The first generation prototype dHydronator was subjected to a full battery of tests by an independent laboratory based in Colorado. The results were spectacular, they confirmed we had something revolutionary for the cannabis, herb and agriculture industries. All tests were repeated with 5 different replicates to provide enough data points for statistical analysis and to ensure accuracy.
This chart , from DigiPathLabs preliminary report, demonstrates the moisture and total aerobic count reduction over time. Total Aerobic Count (TAC) represents an indicator of microbial populations on the cannabis samples. TAC was reduced dramatically from 300,000 to 78,000 over 15.5 hours. Moisture content was reduced from 80% down to 8.4% after 14 hours. Nevada’s drying criteria is from 8 to 15% moisture content. Cured data point is from the same strain and for reference purposes only. View the report for the first generation dHydronator here.
SanitiZen® - STRIVING TO ENSURE YOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY, EVERY TIME.
SanitiZen is a registered trademark for a surface sanitizing process. cannabis is generally recognized by the medical community to be safe for human consumption. However, the plant has been found to be contaminated by a large number of microbial organisms. The following lists a few of the microbial contaminants that may be found in medicinal cannabis.
One of the more potentially deadly molds to humans. Some species produce large amounts of aflatoxin, which is both a toxin (mycotoxin) and a carcinogen. Exposure can cause allergic reactions and/or infections, especially in immunocompromised patients.
A plant pathogen and allergen to humans. Exposure can cause hay fever and may lead to asthma. Exposure can also cause infections in immunocompromised patients.
Is a plant pathogen that can affect cannabis size, yield and quality. This is the group that contains the most common molds but generates no mycotoxins. Overexposure can cause asthma attacks and/or pneumonia in some patients.
Spider mites are common cannabis pests, especially when growing in soil. Although less common in hydroponics, spider mites can show up in any setup where cannabis is being cultivated. Mite feces can be allergenic and provide an environment for E. coli to propagate.
Penicillium is a genus of ascomycetous fungi of major importance in the natural environment as well as food and drug production. Exposure can cause severe allergic reactions in patients who are sensitive to the antibiotic Penicillin.
A group of microorganisms that are often found in cannabis. Some are pathogenic and/or allergenic and should be avoided by immune compromised patients.
Most strains are harmless, however, several can cause food poisoning in humans. E. coli is among the contaminants for which we specifically lab tested the dHydronator®. SanitiZen® technology was proven effective in eliminating the risk of exposure due to handling and ingestion.
A necrotrophic fungus that affects many plant species. Also known as grey mold or bud rot, exposure can result in “winegrower’s lung” a rare form of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (a respiratory allergic reaction in predisposed individuals).
