If you are a cannabis entrepreneur, then you know that having the right equipment is essential to your success. One piece of equipment that is essential for any dispensary or grow operation is an automatic cone filler. This machine makes filling cones with cannabis products quick and easy. In this blog post, we will discuss 5 tips for using your automatic cone filler effectively.
Grind Your Herb Thoroughly
In order for the automatic cone filler to be able to properly work, you'll want to make sure you grind your herb very thoroughly. This will help the machine to evenly distribute the product and fill the cones correctly.
If you don't grind it correctly, you'll leave big clumps of cannabis that will cause irregular airflow. Anytime you have spaces in the cone and the cannabis is not compacted the paper will run and customers will end up complaining it burns too fast.
You could also be letting stems through when you don't grind well enough which will end up punching through the paper and ruining the entire thing. Using a grinder is also a great idea because you could catch keef and end up using it either for your cones or another use.
This will end up increasing the use of each flower instead of wasting a lot of the product because you didn't have the tools necessary.
Clean Out Your Filler After Each Use
The nature of THC is that it's very sticky because it is a resin. This means that it can easily get caught in the machinery of your automatic cone filler, and over time it will start to build up and cause problems.
You'll notice it first in the corners of the filler where the THC tends to gather. Small clumps will start to gather and if you don't constantly clean them out they will only gather more and more THC.
Not only does this make your filler look and appear dirty but it also wastes the THC that could be used in the cone.
To avoid this, make sure you clean out your filler after each use. This will help to keep the machine running smoothly and ensure that your cones are filled with a consistent product.
Keep Your Tools Secure
Your automatic cone filler is going to come with some convenient tools that you can use to make the filling process easier. The smaller automatic cone fillers have very small individual tools while the commercial sized fillers have bigger tools.
Regardless of which one you have, you'll want to make sure that you keep your tools secure. If they are left lying around, there is a good chance that someone will accidentally step on them, or worse, they'll accidentally break.
Not only is this a safety hazard but it can also damage the tools. Keep them in a safe place where no one can access them and you'll avoid any potential accidents. You'll also be able to keep using your machine effectively and won't have to buy expensive replacements.
Just like we mentioned above, you'll want to clean your tools after each use, not just the cone filler. This will keep them working in peak shape and you won't have any sticky resin left over that could cause issues with the process.
Use A Level Surface
It won't do you any good to have a commercial joint rolling machine if you don't have a level surface to put it on. This is especially important if you are using smaller-sized automatic cone fillers.
If the machine isn't stable, then it's going to move around as you try to fill the cones. This will cause the product to be uneven and the cones will not look or smoke the same.
Make sure you have a level surface to put your machine on and it will help to ensure that your cones are filled correctly so you can have a consistent product to sell to your customers.
The last thing you want is a customer coming up and complaining that the cone they bought recently had a different amount of cannabis than the one they bought before.
Make Sure Your Cones Fit
There's no point in buying an expensive automatic cone filler if your cones don't fit. This is especially true if you are using the smaller-sized automatic cone fillers.
Before you buy a commercial joint rolling machine, make sure to measure the size of your cones and compare it to the size of the machine. If they don't fit, then there's no point in buying it because you won't be able to use it.
Some cone fillers do come with adapters so that you can use different sizes of cones, but not all of them do. Make sure you are aware of the size of cones that your machine can use and make sure they will fit before making a purchase.
You'll also want to label your cones in some way or put them in a labeled container. If you just have a bunch of cones laying around that are filled it might be difficult to remember which ones were indica, sativa, or hybrid.
Using an Automatic Cone Filler
When you're using an automatic cone filler, there are a few things you need to keep in mind in order to get the most out of it. By following these tips, you'll be able to use your machine effectively and produce cones that look and smoke the same every time. Just make sure to build a system that you follow every time with your automatic cone filler so that they turn out essentially the exact same every time.
