In the cannabis industry, the dream is to literally grow your money, and despite the saying, in this case, it can literally grow on trees. However, your lucrative buds do not trim themselves. While you can hire a bunch of temporary and unfamiliar staff for your harvest or take your trusted employees away from their daily routine, you may want to consider an automatic trimmer instead. In the long run, these machines offer the opportunity to increase profits. Check out these 6 companies offering auto trimmers.
6 Best Automated Industrial Cannabis Trimmers

The Ultratrimmer’s designers set out to make a machine that worked like scissors. The goal was to treat cannabis flower as delicately as possible and to preserve trichomes.
