Vaportrol Technology is Proven to Retain Higher Terpene Levels

Terpene Retention: The Cannatrol System retained 16% more total terpenes than the traditional drying method. Specific terpenes such as Alpha-Pinene, Beta-Pinene, Myrcene, cis-ocimene, and B-Caryophyllene showed significantly higher concentrations in the Cool Cure method, with increases ranging from 6% to 23%.

OTHER FINDINGS:

Cannabinoid Preservation: While the total cannabinoids were not significantly different between the two methods, the Cannatrol system showed less decarboxylation of cannabinoids, indicating a better preservation of these compounds. Specifically, THCA, CBD, and CBC concentrations were significantly higher in the Cool Cure method, suggesting less degradation due to controlled temperature and humidity.

Environmental Stability: The study found that the traditional drying systems are subject to large environmental fluctuations, which can adversely affect flower quality. In contrast, the Cannatrol system was able to maintain more stable environmental conditions, minimizing spikes in temperature and humidity that can lead to decarboxylation and terpene loss.

READ THE WHITE PAPER

Independent research conducted by The Cannabis Research Coalition in cooperation with The Hemp Mine. Cannatrol samples were held at 68ºF dry bulb and 54ºF dew point. Legacy samples were held at 60ºF dry bulb and 60% Rh using traditional HVAC equipment with dehumidifiers. In order to combat negative side effects from mishandling at a testing facility, samples were extracted immediately after post-harvest treatment. Additionally, water content was measured to correct for water dilution.
