Instead of dried cannabis flower for smoking, doctors typically prescribe tablets, lozenges or inhalers containing cannabis extracts. The products are considered more effective and tolerable. However, in order to administer the ingredients dronabinol, nabilone or nabiximols in tablet form, the cannabis must first be processed.
Without the use of a dual asymmetric centrifugal (DAC) laboratory mixer like a Hauschild SpeedMixer, many pieces of equipment such as vacuum ovens, overhead mixers and heated stir plates must be provided, used and cleaned.
The Hauschild SpeedMixer can be used for:
- Formulating and blending terpenes and distillates (vape oils) at lower temperatures creating higher terpene retention.
- Infusion and coating of powders (salt, sugar, silica, flowers, HPMC, topical creams, transdermal prescriptions).
- Purging and extraction (BHO/PHO) without additional heat or ovens.
- Whipping (budders, crumbles and waxes).
- Emulsification (micro and nano).
- Grinding and milling.
- Extraction of water and alcohol.
According to the company, DAC technology is the key to the Hauschild SpeedMixer's success. The feature of this mixing principle is the simultaneous clockwise and counterclockwise rotation of the mixing cup. The combination of centrifugal forces acting in different planes enables an efficient mixing process characterized by a homogeneous result, without the use of agitators. Almost 100 percent degassing is already achieved during the mixing process, which removes even the smallest microbubbles.
With DAC mixing, materials can be mixed quickly in a repeatable process, allowing the manufacturer to guarantee a level of quality that other mixing technologies cannot match.
