Scaling Up Your Post-Harvest Processing with Automated Systems

Virtually every major crop has benefitted from integrating automated systems into its post-harvest process, and if they want to remain competitive, cannabis processors need to do the same. In this presentation, you’ll learn how automation can bring considerable advantages in product consistency, efficiency, and continuity of flow to your facility. In addition, you’ll gain insights into how industry leader GreenBroz develops its machines and ways they’ve helped operations of all sizes a scale.

Perfectly dried and cured cannabis in just 13-24 hours with Cryo Cure!

An entirely disruptive approach has emerged to rapidly and perfectly dry cannabis and hemp.  The revolution is called Cryo Cure.  Cryo Cure is a patented process and proprietary machinery developed by cannabis and freeze- drying experts to deliver the ultimate solution to drying, curing and processing…in just 13-24 hours!  It’s not just the speed that is game changing.  After Cryo Curing, cannabis flower looks, feels and smells just like it did on the plant.  We like to call it a “live resin flower”.


Co-Presented by: Tracee McAfee/CEO & Co-Founder of CryoCure.

Unpacking Fresh Frozen:  SKUs & Operational Considerations

Profiting from live resin, live rosin, and other top shelf SKUs requires a sophisticated business plan to use fresh frozen cannabis. In this insight-filled webinar, solventless business expert and cannabis advocate Eric Vlosky will teach you how orient your business for maximum profitability with cannabis that has never been dried or cured. Core topics include how to handle, store, and process fresh frozen, why the “cold chain” is so critical to making a top shelf live concentrated product, and what businesses need to know to successfully leverage frozen cannabis.


Presented by: Josh Rutherford, VP of Corporate Development

One of the original co-founders of PurePressure, Josh continues exercising his passion for the cannabis industry as the VP of Corporate Development for Agrify.  After originally attending the University of Arizona he transferred to CU Boulder in 2011 as the cannabis industry was really getting started in Colorado. Cannabis has always been a passion and central to Josh’s life for many years. With extensive experience gathered growing cannabis as a master grower in commercial-scale gardens, Josh soon began offering expertise consulting for growers and extractors. When the rosin revolution was in its infancy, he realized rosin was the extraction method of the future, but was quickly frustrated by the poor quality and unreliable presses on the market. With a trusted friend, Ben Britton, Josh began this mission to solve this problem bringing the best products and technology to the rosin market. In addition to being a founder at PurePressure, Josh is also the co-owner of Kush Masters, a licensed extraction facility in Boulder producing top-tier concentrates and edibles.
