"As advanced and automated as everything is, we are not able to remove that human element"

"We are finally able to finish the construction of phase two, with the goal of doubling the production of the facility. It's by far the most advanced grow room I've ever worked with," says Bruno Gagliardi, Senior General Cultivation Manager for Alien Labs and Connected Cannabis Co. "However, as advanced and automated as everything is, the one thing we are still not able to remove is that human element." In a recent video, Gagliardi gives an inside look at their production process.

"I've always enjoyed the ability to have the maximum amount of control over the plants. I can experiment with the plants and see how they react. Growing in soil or outdoors would therefore not work well for me, as I don't like to leave anything up to chance. Indoors is definitely the most attractive option for me, as I have a sealed room that I can control however I wish," he explains.

The company uses clonal propagation to give them uniformity and maximize their yield. "Seeds have a tendency to have a lot of variability within the batch of seeds. Having different individual plants in our production is counterproductive when we are striving for as much uniformity and consistency as possible."

According to Gagliardi, what happens after drying is that there is not necessarily an even distribution of moisture within that flower. "After the flowers have undergone their trimming process, we use the Grove Bags to begin the curing process. Terpenes are very delicate and volatize easily. The bag maintains it at a certain humidity, regulates the moisture, and preserves the terpenes."
