USA – Nevada-based agricultural technology firm GreenBroz has introduced Holy Roller, a high-capacity pre-roll machine for filling cannabis cones.
The Holy Roller is the result of ‘extensive’ research and development (R&D) by GreenBroz’ engineering team, which has more than 30 years of experience in automated packaging and cannabis.
It can produce more than 3,000 cones an hour and is claimed to have improved fill accuracy and consistency.
In addition, Holy Roller achieves an ‘impressive’ output rate with only a .0012 density variance, which is reportedly ten times more accurate than existing pre-roll machines.
GreenBroz CEO Cullen Raichart said: “When we decided to pursue automation of making the perfect joint, we knew we needed something designed with the real-world properties of cannabis in mind.
“We focused on consistency, which is the lifeblood of your brand, and on what consumers desire: pre-rolls packed densely and evenly and filled with a coarse grind for proper airflow.
“We are proud to release a machine that delivers all of those qualities, producing cones that are not only identical but provide the same great user experience every time.”
Holy Roller uses active weighing and proprietary cannabis separation technology to remove discrepancies in cone fills and reduce clogs.
GreenBroz said the machine will allow pre-roll producers to make joints weighing from 0.35g to 1g with one universal cone.
In addition to fulfilling multiple stock-keeping units, Holy Roller is intended to improve ordering, storage and inventory.
Raichart added: “The Holy Roller is a real game-changer and gives pre-roll producers an edge in the highly competitive market, providing them with the perfect mix of quality, quantity, uniformity, and airflow to position their brand as a leader in consistency.”
With the new technology, pre-roll producers are better placed to compete in the ever-growing cannabis packaging market.
According to market analysis report by Grand View Research, the U.S. cannabis packaging market size valued at US$842.7 million in 2021, is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 30.6% from 2022 to 2030.
The growth owes to the increasing legalization of cannabis usage in U.S. states. The recreational use of cannabis is also gaining a green signal from the states, which is further supporting the market growth.
