August 5, 2023 | 12:00 pm | Room 1 | Processing

Post harvest is often an afterthought when planning a new facility and working in existing spaces. We struggle with variable climates and seasonal shifts. The key to controlling post harvest is gaining an understanding of the physics at work in the drying, curing, and storage space. When we understand the relationship between temperature, dew point, and relative humidity we have the foundation on which to build and operate a sound post harvest environment.

We’ll take a deep dive into the physics at work in the post harvest environment and how to get control over conditions in this misunderstood and often neglected part of the cannabis industry. This presentation will review best practices for building out drying, curing, and storage space. We will also review the best materials to use when constructing a post harvest space. Importantly, We’ll talk in some detail about how proper management in post harvest can increase profitability, reduce waste, and ultimately produce superior cannabis.
