Hello Growers Network community! We’re thrilled to have JWC Environmental here today to take your questions! I was lucky enough to see a demo of their shredders and grinders and it was impressive to say the least. I won’t reveal too much, but their grinder in particular is a real game changer for hemp extractors.

I’ll kick this off - 1st, thank you so much for taking the time to answer questions today!

JWC Environmental has a number of environmental solutions across several industries. Can you talk a bit about your journey into the cannabis space? Was it a hard sell considering the legal gray area surrounding the plant?

Hi Chris, Thanks for having us on the AMA today. We are excited to provide insight on how our Monster Industrial Shredders can help marijuana cultivators and hemp processors.

We started providing solutions to the cannabis industry about 4 years ago. Our grinders have been able to meet regulatory disposal requirements. It has proven to be very successful throughout North America.

There’s a wide range of similar products on the market. Without revealing anything proprietary, can you tell us what makes your machines stand out from the crowd?

4 Likes

Absolutely. Our slow speed high torque technology provides the ability to grind wet/dry material effectively. We customize our solution to meet the specific requirements of each user. Some examples of these customizations are the size of the opening, cutter configuration and HP of the motor. It ensures a successful process for each customer.

Can you please provide some context to your question? Is this for extraction?

As @chrisD mentioned there are a few people in the field, so speaking of proprietary does JWC hold any patents on any of their grinders?

3 Likes

For extraction specifically, is the equipment designed for indoor use only?

Can you explain the current compliance issues JWCE’s tech can help professional growers with?

The grinders are rated to be functional indoor or outdoor. The control panels are rated NEMA 4 and can be exposed to outdoor elements.

Hi Chris, most states require that cannabis waste be rendered unusable and unrecognizable before disposal. Some also require the waste be mixed with 51% organic material. We offer solutions that will render not only stems, sticks, but also rootballs unusable and unrecognizable. If customers are looking for options other than disposal, we can recommend disruptive technologies that provides other outcomes for the waste. If someone is interested in further discussion, please DM @tomb for more information

@digicole Great question! We do have patented technology inside our grinders… for example, our serrated cam cutters.

Two part question: What’s the difference between shredders and grinders (if any)?

Does JWCE’s technology offer any kind of novel benefit to hemp extractors?
