Frequently Asked Questions

 

Wet Trimming vs. Dry Trimming

 

Wet buds are the easiest to trim. Their leaves are big, crisp and easy to cut. Freshly harvested buds aren’t brittle like dry bud and their perky leaves catch well in grates and tumblers. After exiting a bud trimming machine, wet buds are then rack dried and come out uniform in appearance. Although rack drying doesn’t make pretty round buds so many growers would rather hang dry the buds first. However, most all bud trimming machines can process more wet buds than dry buds per hour.

wet-vs-dry-buds-cannabis-trimming-for-machines

Dry buds take longer to trim. Their leaves are shrunk and curled inwards. If the buds are half-dry the leaves are wilty and don’t slice well. If the buds are overdried they may be too brittle to go in the machines without breaking off a lot of trichomes in the process. The benefit is that if the buds are hang-dried on lines first they form up nice and round. This is why some growers prefer to use a bud trimmer machine after drying. Tumbler-design machines work good for bulk trimming dry buds.

 

Is it Worth the Price?

 

It’s worth it if you use it. Small harvests don’t need much more than a pair of scissors and a few hours of work. Once you are harvesting more than you can deal with, using a handheld trimmer or compact machine starts to becomes helpful. Bud trimmer machines cut down on the time it takes to deal with those not-so-fun to trim buds, especially the lower end “pinchy” buds. You can still manicure the tops by hand if you please but send the pinchy buds to the machine to get it done and forget it.

Many growers get sore and tired of trimming by hand so they buy a bud trimmer machine to do the work for them. Even the small cheap bud trimmers can speed up the time of harvest. The tabletop tumbler machines make it so easy that all you have to do is break down buds and load them in.

 

Do Trimmer Machines Damage Buds?

 

When buds are rolling around inherently there’s going to be some trichome damage. All we can do is try to minimize it. The machines that use non-stick tumblers are less abrasive than the bowl trimmers, and process bud in less time. Adjusting the blades of a bud trimmer machine too close may slice off pieces of bud.

bud-after-trimmer-machine-damage-buds

As far as handheld bud trimmers go the Wander Trimmer is called the “no-damage bud trimmer” – it only cuts the leaf that gets sucked into the wand. The Speedee Trim on the other hand is open-faced so it’s up to the operator to make the right cuts.

 

Cleaning Bud Trimmer Machines

 

Bud trimmer machines need to be cleaned regularly. In most cases this means take a minute to clear out the excess material built-up on the blade. Eventually, whether it’s wet buds or dry buds either way the resin sticks and is hard to get off of equipment. Ways clean off resin include using soap & hot water, vinegar, plant oil, alcohol and other organic cleaners.

 

Each bud trimmer machine model will have it’s own unique cleaning process specifications, so make sure to reference your owner’s manual or website for best results.
