Liquid Nitrogen Dosing - Cannabis
The state-level legalization of both medical and recreational cannabis has created the need to improve the packaging process of marijuana. As the industry grows, so does the need for quality control and storage. Canning individual portions of the cannabis flower in hermetically sealed “tins” is rapidly gaining popularity. When exposed to oxygen, the active compounds in cannabis, THC and CBD, begin to degrade along with its efficacy. Dosing these containers with liquid nitrogen purges the oxygen from the package prior to sealing, reducing the O2 level, and extending shelf life.
