Yofumo represents a major step forward in commercial cannabis storage and processing.
“With Yofumo, growers can control their harvests with newfound accuracy and establish handling standards for dispensaries,” said Brendan Carroll, chief operating officer of Yofumo. “Stores are able to safeguard the integrity of their inventory with newfound reliability. Patients can ensure their medicine is bacteria-, mold- and fungus-free and can be stored long-term without degradation.”
Yofumo launched in January with three commercial products designed for grows and dispensaries: The Quad, The Pro and The Pro+. Each curing chamber gives the user more control over cannabis flowers than ever before and can be customized to suit the goals of individual businesses. These innovations will help growers achieve superior product quality and consistency, while simultaneously reducing operation costs. Two consumer products, The Pearl and The Classic, will be available later in 2017.
“We’ve seen great improvement in growing, but no one has yet to refine the post-harvest process,” said CEO Alfonso Campalans, who hails from the corporate financial world. “The flower gets cared for meticulously while on the plant, but then it goes to trim rooms and dispensaries where nothing protects the flowers’ integrity.”
Yofumo aims to spread that focus more toward post-harvest with the application of gaseous ozone to eliminate mold, fungus and bacteria. The units have configured ozone to work on cannabis without compromising any of the flower’s medicinal cannabinoids, terpenes or flavonoids. The elimination of “pot rot” ensures patients that their medicine is free of contaminants, while extending the product’s shelf life.
