No, we use nitrogen to displace oxygen in the package without the use of abusive vacuum to create an environment that minimizes biochemical reactions. TruStar high barrier packaging materials are then used to keep oxygen and moisture transmission to a bare minimum. This creates a modified or controlled atmosphere inside the package that safely extends the freshness of the bud, flower or edible.
Yes, the TruStar equipment can run a range of sizes from small single use 1.5 gram pouches to large 1 pound bags made for industrial applications. The equipment can be adjusted. The output varies depending on size of package and loading speed but can range from 15 to 40 packages per minute.
