The key to a successful, and profitable harvest is to reduce the amount of touch up required prior to packaging.
Regardless of the trimming equipment you are currently using or the size of your harvest, if you must touch up 70-80% of the buds prior to packaging, you are not harvesting as efficiently as you could be.
Ez Trim is a Colorado based company that for the last 12 years has developed harvesting equipment and systems that reduce the touch up process from 70-80% down to 30-50%.
Whether you prefer to trim wet or dry, have a large staff or small, our products and services can be tailored to compliment your unique situation and current resources.
When you factor all the steps of the harvesting process, including: defanning, cutting, weighing, drying, bucking, trimming, touching up, curing and packaging. Reducing the handling through this process is what increases profitability.
Ask yourself, if there was a company that provided equipment and systems, that cost less, produced better bud quality, offered onsite consulting, was built by growers, and had a money back guarantee, would you have anything to lose? Visit Eztrim.com and call or text us today.

The Sorter let you accurately, efficiently, and safely sort your cannabis and hemp buds into shake, popcorn, small, medium, and large buds.
Without vibration or moving parts, your buds stay in pristine condition.
The Bud Sorter is typically used as a quality control station. As the buds come out of the trimmer they are loaded onto the sorter for a quick inspection and any necessary touch-up. From there they are sorted by brushing the product down the grates and into their appropriate container.
The Bud Sorter is intended to be utilized post trimming (when trimming dry) and pre-drying (when trimming wet).
Additional grates can be custom made to your preferred size.
The Bud Sorter will increase your efficiency when packaging, by separating similarly weighted flowers, and increase consistency for drying, by separating similarly sized flowers.

THERE ARE 3 MAIN CANNABIS AND HEMP HARVESTING METHODS
THERE ARE 6 STEPS TO EACH HARVESTING METHOD
THE STEPS CHANGE BASED ON THE METHOD
EACH METHOD HAS DIFFERENT ADVANTAGES
THE BEST METHOD IS BASED ON PRIORITIES AND RESOURCES
There are advantages and disadvantages to every harvest method. Our goal is to align you to the method that will improve product quality, compliment your resources, and increase efficiency and profitability.
There are advantages and disadvantages to all 3-harvesting method. The best method is based on:
BUCKING AND TRIMMING FRESH CANNABIS BUDS
BUCKING FRESH CANNABIS BUDS & DRYING BUDS WITH THE LEAVES BEFORE TRIMMING
DRYING WHOLE PLANTS – BUCKING & TRIMMING DRIED CANNABIS BUDS
REMOVING THE LARGE FAN LEAVES FROM THE STEM
Equipment: Hands or Scissors
NOTE: Bucking should occur immediately after harvesting the plants and while the Buds are fresh, and the leaves are sticking out.
REMOVING AND INDIVIDUALIZING THE BUDS FROM THE STEM
Equipment: Bud Bucker, Hands, or Scissors
NOTE: Bucking should occur after Drying is complete. We recommend bucking the plants when partially dried to 50-60% RH, then continue drying and curing the bucked buds prior to trimming. If bucking and trimming on the same day, and prior to curing, dry the plants to 30-40% RH, run the Bud Bucker on a very slow speed and expect a small amount of breakdown to your top colas. If plants have become too dry to safely use the Bud Bucker, rehydrate the plants to a level where breakdown is not an issue.
REMOVING MOISTURE FROM THE CANNABIS PLANT & BUDS
Equipment: Humidity controlled environment with airflow
NOTE: Drying should occur immediately after trimming the buds when wet trimming and immediately after bucking the buds when hybrid trimming. Ensure you have proper airflow, ambient temperature, and humidity levels in the room
REMOVING MOISTURE FROM THE PLANT & CANNABIS BUDS
Equipment: Humidity controlled environment with airflow
NOTE: Drying should occur immediately after harvesting the plants
TRIMMIG CANNABIS LEAVES FROM THE BUDS
EQUIPMENT: Bud TRIMMER, WANDER TRIMMER, OR SCISSORS
NOTE: Wet trimming should occur immediately after the buds have been bucked, and while the buds are fresh, and the leaves are sticking out.
TRIMMING CANNABIS LEAVES FROM THE Buds
EQUIPMENT: BUD TRIMMER OR SCISSORS
Note: Typically, the product is ready to trim when the plants and the room have homogenized to an ambient RH of 30-40%.
SEAL, STORE AND AGE CANNABIS AND HEMP BUDS FOR STRONG TERPINE PROFILE
EQUIPMENT: SEALED CONTAINERS
Note: This process is the same for all 3 harvest methods
SEPARATE CANNABIS AND HEMP BUDS FROM SHAKE, POPCORN, SMALL, MEDIUM AND LARGE BUDS
EQUIPMENT: BUD SORTER
NOTE: This process is the same for all 3 harvest methods
