Willy is the owner and Chief Innovation Officer of Wacky Willys Inc. Established in 1990, with headquarters is in Victoria, BC; Wacky Willys designs and supplies affordable scalable compliant solventless extraction equipment that aims to solve common challenges faced by Craft Cannabis extractors and producers.
Willy’s passion for innovating in this space began in 2009 with his WackyBags ‘All-Mesh’ brand. His design of All-Mesh bubble hash filter bags, was the first of its kind on the market solving a multitude of processing problems for hash makers and enthusiasts. His legendary early cannabis processing designs also include the stainless-steel Hammer Press, Rocket Tank, Boomers Grinder and the first fully automatic bubble hash washing machine, better known as the ‘red and white’ 20-gallon Bubble Blaster.
Willy believes that the quality and integrity of solventless extracts can be elevated across the industry, which is why, in 2020 a new era of Wacky Willy’s commercial solventless extraction equipment was launched. The new line challenges and expands upon traditional techniques and harnesses only the organic forces of nature: clean water and air, vibration, temperature and pressure. Willy’s new ‘Iceless’ bubble hash washing system, the Arctic Boomer, the vibrating air agitated RocketSpa tank, the Boomers Big Buzz dry sift vibration table and his latest pressure wave agitator the ArcticPlunge are all revolutionizing the solventless extraction equipment market. This Wacky guy never stops innovating, so if you have an extraction challenge, bring it to Willy!
