Finalizing The dHydronator®
Nacif decided to join the THCT team because of his belief in the company’s product and its ability to improve consumer safety in the cannabis market.
The dHydronator®, which has received patent protection on all 20 claims from The United States Patent and Trademark Office, is a lab-tested, sanitizing herb dryer capable of reducing moisture content in cannabis to 10%-15% in 10-14 hours. Traditional cannabis drying methods currently can exceed two weeks for comparable moisture content reduction. In addition, the dHydronator® has Sanitizen Technology®, a contaminant-reducing platform independently laboratory-tested to diminish TAC (total aerobic count) and microbial load from failing to passing levels.
Nacif will be working with the scientists and engineers involved with THCT to align the product’s revolutionary technology with a design that is consumer-facing and simple to use.
“I am very pleased and honored to be working with THC Therapeutics, an up-and-coming industry pioneer that looks holistically at the needs of consumers,” Nacif stated. “From a product design standpoint, I really enjoy working on new products and creating a design language for a new brand like THCT. The team is fabulous and has very focused leadership in this marketplace.”
Brandon Romanek, the company’s CEO, stated, “I’m thrilled to bring Victor on board; this represents mainstream talent entering the cannabis space. With Mr. Nacif’s expertise, we believe the dHydronator® can make a revolutionary impact on the cannabis market that is growing rapidly. We believe an unfortunate side effect of the cannabis market’s fast growth is the threat to public health and safety from cannabis contamination. Our product allows consumers to take control, sanitize their own cannabis flower, and allow the plant’s properties to be expressed without worrying about high microbial loads.”
