A Guide to Trimming Cannabis
Among the several moving parts involved in running your own company in the cannabis industry, there are some unexpected daily tasks that carry a surprising amount of importance. You likely already know that it’s important to get the right cannabis industry insurance policy, balance your budget, maintain proper oversight of equipment and so on, but you might not know too much about pruning to increase yield. In fact, you may be wondering when to start pruning cannabis and how proper trimming works. If this is a question that’s affecting your business, take a look at this quick guide for trimming cannabis that can help you become a trimming expert in no time.
Understand the Multiple Purposes of Trimming First
Although it might seem like a hassle, proper trimming is not only helpful but also essential in ensuring a good end product. For example, if you’ve trimmed buds well, they’ll cure better, leading to enhanced moisture and flavor. It’s also aesthetically important in the final product, since trimmed cannabis looks much more even and appealing overall, which could help boost your sales numbers and bottom line. Ultimately, the process of checking branches for buds and removing fan and sugar leaves has more uses than might meet the eye.
Decide Whether You Prefer Dry or Wet Trimming Approaches
An important step in the trimming process is deciding whether you want to go with a wet or a dry trimming approach. While both have their pros and cons, the ultimate choice is up to you. If you go with dry trimming, you will essentially leave your plants hanging up to dry for a number of days before doing the trimming. This can be effective especially if you live someplace with very dry weather, and it tends to be a fairly neat, mess-free solution. At the same time, you’ll need the space for hanging everything up. On the other hand, you could choose wet trimming, which allows you to remove leaves quicker and easier, and may create a more visually appealing end result.
Follow a Few Simple Steps for Trimming Your Buds
Whichever method you choose, it will eventually be time to trim the buds. This phase may sound complicated, but can easily be tackled in the following simple steps:
- Take down the branches you want to trim, and hang them up if following the dry method
- Take off the fan leaves and trim off buds
- Remove excess from the buds, including the stem and any other unnecessary matter
There are numerous factors involved in running your business in the cannabis sector, from getting comprehensive cannabis industry insurance to ensuring you have consistent working capital, but having good trimming skills is one underappreciated aspect. With this simple guide, you can begin trimming your business’s crop to yield the best possible results.
