Cultivators must make the choice between machine and hand trimming. Machine trimming has high upfront costs, decreased quality, but is fast. Traditional hand trimming can preserve quality if done carefully, but is the slowest method and comes at a premium cost. Using the brushing system, especially the assembly line method, preserves quality, improves speed, lowers costs, and is overall just more enjoyable.
Brushing is an ergonomic motion and puts nominal stress on your hands, wrists, and eyes. With proper technique brushing feels natural.
Faster Than Scissors
Brushing all the buds on a stalk at the same time is surprisingly efficient. With experience the volume you can trim brushing is impressive.
The trichomes on your buds burst when touched due to pressure and stickiness. Brush trimming with silicone paddles is gentler on the plant.
The shape and stiffness of the silicone paddles provides the right amount of pressure to trim the stems and leaves off of most strains.
Minimal Resin Build-Up
As we know, resin is incredibly sticky. Scissors and gloves gunk up quickly while silicone is resistant to stickiness preventing resin build-up.
Easy to Clean
Brushes require much less cleaning than scissors. Eventually some quick cleaning will spiff up your paddles. Freeze the brush and gently knock off resin tips.
