Natural Vibration Extraction: There’s a whole lot of shaking going on!
‘The law of vibration is one of the basic laws of the universe. It decrees that everything moves, nothing rests, we literally live in an ocean of motion.”
The natural laws of the universe are very precise! When vibrations disturb a medium, the disturbance travels through the medium from one end to the other in the form of a wave of energy.
These good vibrations create waves that naturally separate and extract trichomes from the cannabis and hemp plant. By sending waves of vibration through the plant material of cannabis or hemp it literally disturbs the natural connection between the chlorophyll rich plant material and releases the glandular trichomes.
During bud and trim vibration, resinous trichome heads and tails begin waving with vibrational energy, then fall off the plant matter, fully intact. This totally natural extraction method is way faster and produces a more consistent product yield than hand sifting!
Vibration Levels Control Quality & Quantity
The way you regulate the energy of the vibration will determine the quality (potency) and quantity (yield) of your end product. A higher amplitude will allow the buds to jump up and down higher. A lower amplitude will reduce the height that the buds or trim oscillate on the screen top, but due to the increased frequency and force, this may yield a better outcome of material. Higher vibration forces will allow you to flow more material.
Vibration breaks the friction between the trichomes and buds and allows them to fall off the bud, and sift down thru the various micron size screens. Basically, the vibration breaks the fiction boundary between the trichomes and the mesh, which allows the trichome heads and tails to fall all the way down to the bottom screen, while the debris and other contaminants are trapped above. Vibrational sifting with multiple screens of different microns will quickly and efficiently capture 3 different grades of hash.
By adjusting the vibrational energy intensity (amplitude) and frequency (Hertz) you can regulate how your buds or trim react to the waves of vibration.
The vibrational energy will gently move the botanical material in a back and forth motion called the amplitude. The botanical material will follow the curve of that graph when vibrating on the table. The distance between the max peak and the min peak is known as the wave height, which is amplitude and oscillate each bud and leaf (oscillation is measured in hertz).
By adjusting the vibration speed on the controller, you will be adjusting the amplitude and the frequency as well as the force acting on the buds or trim. Depending on the density of the material (is it wet and sticky, or dry?), and the weight on the top screen, will determine the best speed to run at.
Running the vibrator at a low speed will make the buds look like they are jumping really high (compared at a high vibration speed). This is because the amplitude is high. But if there is a high amplitude, there will be a low vibration force and frequency.
If the speed is increased, the buds may look like they are barely moving. But they will be moving faster, and bouncing faster. The increased vibration force and frequency will allow more trichomes to fall off. So, even though it may look better to run the vibrator at a lower speed, there will most likely be more yield if the vibrator is run at a higher speed.
Vibration control is at your finger tips!
The vibration will cause the buds and trim to oscillate on the screen top. The oscillation can be adjusted with the speed controller.
Increasing the speed of the vibrator will increase the force output as well as the frequency. The increase (higher) in frequency will cause a decrease in amplitude.
Inversely, if you decrease the speed of the vibrator you will lower the force output and lower the frequency. This will create a higher amplitude. A higher amplitude will allow the buds to jump up and down higher.
Decreasing (lower) the amplitude will reduce the height they oscillate on the screen top, but due to the increased frequency and force, may yield a better outcome of material.
Increasing the vibration forces will allow you to flow more material.
