Cannabis Processing

As the cannabis processing industry gains momentum, more and more companies are becoming familiar with the challenges of cannabis processing and cannabis production. In order to create the highest-quality cannabis products, such as sublingual sprays, gel cap doses and even beverages, a critical step in cannabis manufacturing is to achieve a stable, uniform, homogeneous dispersion or emulsion to effectively carry the active cannabis ingredients — whether THC or CBD — in the liquid or gel. 

The most effective method of cannabis homogenization is high shear mixing. This process, in contrast with in-tank mixing or sonication, is the most consistent way to ensure that a uniform liquid or gel dispersion or emulsion is produced. Other methods can be more time-consuming and expensive, and they do not guarantee that the necessary incorporation of the cannabis product will occur, even after hours or days of in-tank mixing.

Using a high shear mixer as your cannabis processing equipment ensures that particles are broken down and incorporated into the liquid or gel at exactly the right time, creating a more efficient process to yield optimal results.

Quadro® Liquids offers a broad range of mixing equipment to get cannabis processing systems up and running, or to augment your existing machinery. Whether you are manufacturing THC or CBD products — including topical applications, sublingual sprays, gel for gel caps, or beverages — we have the right high shear cannabis mixer for the task. We feature mixers designed for powder dispersion or emulsification to suit your needs.

The Right Processes for the Right Products

Quadro® mixers are able to help with manufacturing a range of cannabis products that are rapidly growing in popularity, including:

  • Sublingual sprays
  • Topical gels and applications
  • Gel caps
  • Cannabis beverages

When manufacturing these products, it is critical that a stable, homogeneous mixture is created.

This is necessary for:

  • Shelf stability
  • Stability during transportation
  • Dose uniformity
  • Product quality
  • Regulatory requirements, which are especially strict in the cannabis industry

Other mixing methods are either unable to produce the stable mixtures required to meet these needs, or are resource intensive (time, costs, personnel) to the point of being prohibitive.
