The newspaper article, published September 13, 2020, stated, “Without a 62 per cent increase — $685 million — in cannabis sales, farm cash receipts would have increased a mere .8 per cent… Led by surging cannabis sales, farm cash receipts in the first half of the year bucked the general decline caused by the coronavirus.”

Darwin Chambers designs, manufacturers and installs controlled environmental chambers that offer precise control of temperature, humidity, gas, and lighting. Stock and custom chambers with highly energy efficient components are available for a wide variety of applications including cannabis production. Certified technicians recommend solutions and provide critical support.

The drying process is critical to maintaining proper levels of cannabinoids and preventing mold and mildew. Darwin Chambers provides cannabis drying rooms designed for the replicable drying of cannabis. The company manufactures and installs cannabis drying rooms that can vary temperature, additive humidity, and dehumidification at programmed (ramped) levels. This enables lot-to-lot consistency whether the drying happens in humid, coastal areas or dry, high altitude areas. Product can also be stored long term with precise levels of humidity to prevent mold or brittleness. Darwin utilizes a proprietary method of cooling, the PFTCU, (precision fluid temperature control unit) to precisely control temperature. Unlike typical refrigeration units, the PFTCU enables fast replacement (30 minutes) of all cooling components as well as redundancy when ordered as such. Exclusive Antimicrobial Coating on door handle to reduce the spread of bacteria and pathogens. Stable temperature preserves cannabinoids well. Low light levels are also important for proper drying of grown plants. Darwin Chambers offers options to control light levels along with many other chamber options including: Black out strip curtains (to prevent unwanted light infiltration when people must enter the chamber), data loggers, chart recorders, shelving and curing racks.

Darwin Chambers are ideal for cannabis production, and AirMed is proud to be the exclusive representative for Darwin Chambers in Canada.
