We’ve taken methods from the old-world tobacco trade and given it new life with our 1950’s Cigarillo Roller from the Dominican Republic, typically used for rolling cigars. After nearly a year of design and retrofits, this classic machinery is now ready to create our pre-rolls and blunts. This process is nothing short of an art form as our technicians feed paper into the chamber while the machine precisely measures the flower. This technique combines manual operation with innovative technology that monitors the amount of pressure on the flower to protect the product’s integrity. Under the careful eye of expert technicians, the Cigarillo Rolling Machine can produce 1,000 units within an hour, creating the perfect pre-roll or blunt.
“We are continually looking at ways to innovate and the Cigarillo Rolling Machine is an opportunity to transform technology to create efficiency in our production process while maintaining precision and personalized attention to the flower,” said Paul Henderson, CEO of Grupo Flor.
Welcoming White Fire to the Family

“I’m extremely impressed with White Fire’s efficient operations and ability to alleviate wait times with its unique express lane pickup for those who want order ahead. This acquisition gives us key licenses in the Bay Area and access to seasoned retail talent,” said Paul Henderson, CEO of Grupo Flor.

Washington moves closer to delivering protections for banks serving the cannabis industry
There is a 75% chance of “banking clarity” for cannabis companies in the current session of Congress, said Isaac Boltansky, director of policy research for Compass Point Research and Trading, in a recent note.
Other experts say the chances for an actual cannabis-banking law are below that level, but we remain optimistic that Congress will do the right thing.
