Why do you clean your bud before using it to create cannaoil, cannaoil and other edibles?
Will washing my cannabis ruin or reduce the potency of my flower and/or my edibles?
Will I lose any trichomes in the cleaning process?
Yes and no. You will not lose any trichomes that systemically part of the bud you clean. You will, however, lose any loose trichomes that have broken off of other buds which have stuck to the bud you are cleaning. These trichomes will fall off during the blanching process as appear as part of the “brown sludge” floating on top of the blanching water.
There is sticky stuff inside my blanching pot following the blanching process? What is this and how can I remove it?
The sticky stuff are actually the loose trichomes that have fallen off your buds during the blanching process. If you like, you can carefully scrape them of the pots walls with a small knife. The sticky stuff is a type of hash and is clean and smokable. Just roll it into a ball and add it to a bowl of your favorite flower! You can then use any alcohol to clean your pot and remove any residue.

I ordered your LEVO Potency Increaser, can I use it to decarb my bud in the LEVO?
Yes. The “Levo Potency Increaser” can be used to decarb your cannabis before you infuse it into your oil or butter. Simply invert the screen (place it in the LEVO upside down), place your bud on top of it and set the machine to dry/decarb.
