A Need For A Cannabis Industry-Focused Scale Company

A need for a cannabis industry-focused scale company with Chuck Olivier of The Dimebag Scale Company. The company is a service company that also sells scales; it is not a scale dealer that offers service. Every scale used for commerce in Washington — regardless of whether it’s weighing steaks or weighing marijuana — needs to be National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) approved and have a security seal applied so the merchant can’t “cheat the scale”. In the case of 502-licensed producers and processors, there are two basic scales companies will need a bench scale for 5- and 15-pound lots for producers dealing in bulk, and a smaller scale for processors that looks more like a pharmaceutical scale and measures down to tenths of a gram. For example, the potential slop from 10,000 one-gram packages on a scale with .1 gram resolution could be as much as 1,000 grams. This also highlights the need for scales to be checked for accuracy. Regardless of where business owners buy their scales, it’s critical that you have a scale company come out and check the scale you’re using. People assume it’s accurate out of the box. There’s only one way to know for sure.
