My team is working on outlining a procedure for manufacturing infused pre-rolls that will be compliant with CDPH’s regs. In the old days it was simple, fill a cone, paint on some terpene/oil solution and roll in kief. But having to comply with the new regs We’re finding it challenging to come up with a methodology to ensure that specific and repeatable amounts of oil and keif are added to the outside of each cone.
This is important not only for continuity in the end product but because one need to be able to label the product with the specific milligrams of the added extracts.
Ideas We’re considering:
for the terpene/oil solution are, adding a specified amount of solution via syringe and spreading evenly somehow while tracking the added weight to ensure uniformity
for the kief, rolling each filled cone in a pre-weighed quantity of kief on PTFE or something until all keif is stuck to the cone.
These ideas arguably create more questions than they address when you consider the nuances and the fact that the procedure would need to be repeated many 1000’s of times a day.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!
