In this section of La Huerta Grow Shop you can find all types of precision scales that adapt perfectly to your needs.
When it comes to harvesting and drying buds, it’s always good to know exactly how much you’ve harvested from your cannabis plants. Plus, precise scales are ideal for weighing small amounts of cannabinoid extracts like Rosin, BHO, Iceolator etc.
What Scales do I Need?
There’s a wide range of scales available on the market, and some of them are more likely to adjust to your needs than others. The first thing you’ll need to know is that the size of the scale is based on two things; its maximum capacity and how precise it is. Most weighing scales allow you to change the units from grams to ounces.
At La Huerta Grow Shop you can find scales that can weigh from 100g, all the way to larger 1kg models, even including professional weighing scales that can weigh up to 50kg.
If you’re growing cannabis at home and you don’t need to weigh large amounts of flowers, you can use scales between 100g and 500g, with a 0.01g precision for the most exact, trustworthy results. For example:
- Kenex Glass 100g x 0.01g Scales: these digital scales are battery operated and have a case for transporting.
- Kenex Rosin 200g x 0.01g Scales: this model is ideal for weighing Rosin extracts and other types of extracts thanks to its silicone cover. It can also be used as a normal weighing scales.
- Kenex Magno 500g x 0.01g Scales: this device is battery operated and has a plastic lid that can be used as a tray.
Professional Weighing Scales
On the other hand, if you have a larger grow or you run a cannabis association, you may have larger needs. At La Huerta Grow Shop you can find hefty weighing scales designed to weigh large amounts of flowers or extracts, as well as models that are highly useful for storefronts.
Keep in mind that in order to weigh heftier amounts of flowers, you don’t need exact decimal precision, which is why most of these models have a precision of 0.1 to 2g, depending on their weighing capacity.
- Tuff Weigh Scales: these scales come in two models, a more precise one (100g x 0.01g) and another model that can weigh up to 1kg with a precision of 0.1g.
- Kenex Counter Scales: also available in two models, the first one can weigh up to 3kg in 0.01g increments, while the second model can weigh up to 5kg in 1g increments.
- On Balance Mega-Bowl 8kg x 1g Scales: this is ideal for large growers and associations, it comes with a tray that can hold up to 3L, which makes it a great choice for those that dabble in cooking too. It can be used with either batteries or connected to the mains.
- Digital Kenex Cargo 50kg x 2g Scales: this high capacity weighing scales has a weighing surface of 20 x 20cm, allowing you to weigh large amounts at once. Can be used with batteries or plugged in.
Scales for Dispensaries and Clubs
The Fuzion Pro 300g has a smaller capacity compared to previously mentioned models, although it does have an extra benefit which is that it has two screens, one on each side, so that customers can see the weight.
This makes it a great option for professional associations and dispensaries, both the budtender and consumer will be able to see the exact weight.
Weighing Scales Maintenance
Weighing scales are super precise, which means you’ll need to take care of them properly in order to guarantee exact readings and results. In order to keep your scales in the best possible condition, follow these steps:
- Keep it clean: dirt can influence your scales’ precision, which is why we recommend keeping it in a case and cleaning it after every use.
- Keep it away from other electronic devices: magnetic fields produced by some devices can cause erroneous readings in digital scales.
- Take care when transporting your device: if your scales fall, their sensors may end up breaking.
- Use flat surfaces: if the scales aren’t fully horizontal, the readings may not be correct.
- Calibrate your digital scales: most models can be configured and calibrated by using a 50 or 100g calibrating weight.
