VJ Scientific Unveils New X-Ray Cannabis Decontamination Machine

October 13, 2022 · Forbes

X-ray technology company VJ Group announced on Wednesday that it has launched VJ Scientific, a new cannabis division that will provide product decontamination equipment to the regulated marijuana industry. The company also revealed the new enterprise’s initial product offering, which it characterized as “a revolutionary non-thermal, non-chemical cannabis decontamination machine.” Dubbed the CX-1000, the new cannabis decontamination solution will be debuted next month at MJBizCon in Las Vegas.

Commercial cannabis cultivation carries the risk of contamination from an array of biological sources, including yeasts, mold and bacteria. To protect consumers from the potentially harmful effects of these contaminants, many states that have legalized cannabis production have enacted legislation requiring cannabis products to pass laboratory tests for contamination before they enter the market. Nationally, up to 15% of cannabis flower fails yeast and mold testing, according to information from Trichome Analytical. Failed tests can result in loss from required product disposal, fines, product liability litigation, reputational harm and in some situations, loss of a company’s license to produce cannabis.

Don Naugler, director of technology and founding member of VJ Scientific, says that the company collaborated with the cannabis industry to develop the CX-1000.
