Why Radio Frequency is the Ideal Remediation for the Colombian Market
With 12 hours of sun year-round, Colombia is an ideal growing environment for large-scale outdoor cultivation. However, growing outdoors also creates risk - opportunities for microbial pathogens to flourish. And how do you move high volumes of flower through a remediation solution efficiently and effectively?
Ziel’s radio frequency solution with APEX efficiently solves these problems, allowing cultivators to meet microbial regulatory compliance standards for export markets. With 3X the throughput of competing technologies, you won’t experience operational bottlenecks. And APEX also has the lowest-cost remediation solution per kilogram, keeping your operating costs down.
Colombia primarily exports to the EU, which favors non-ionizing technologies. Read more about the growing Colombian market, their microbial regulations, and why Ziel’s Radio Frequency remediation is the ideal solution for cultivators seeking to export to the EU.
Why a remediation ‘kill step’ is necessary for cannabis.
New York’s Medical Cannabis Industry Association commissioned a report on recreational cannabis products sold in over 20 illicit retail stores in New York City. More than 40% of the products purchased failed for microbial contaminants and lead, representing an alarming health risk to consumers.
The Future of Cannabis Sterilization
“The Future of Cannabis Sterilization” written by Kenneth Morrow, takes a high-level look at what issues cultivators face after their harvest. Post-harvest processes have yet to be defined for the industry and choosing the correct remediation technology will ensure producers can meet state microbial regulatory compliance.
Patented RF technology shows promise for cannabis and hemp decontamination.
Surviving in the cannabis regulations can be a real doozie. Even vigilant cultivators occasionally have to deal with yeast, and other pathogens, which make a crop unsellable. Remediation usually means a loss of terpenes or potency, but Ziel has secured the first patent for the innovative process of microbial reduction through radio frequency technology.
