Home grows have come a long way in the technology department in recent years.
Makes sense. After all, recent data shows that cannabis use by adults has risen 50% in ten years.
And with more and more states coming online with legal cannabis laws allowing for home cultivation, the future, as they say, is now.
Especially so for cutting edge technology to start getting out of the test lab and into the homes of consumers with a green thumb. For cannabis, or anything requiring the basics of agriculture.
Enter Israeli startup Seedo, which is pitching itself as the “first driverless car for hydroponic growing” at home. The technology revolves around proprietary hardware and software with their branded app, which provides real time information and data for monitoring successful growing conditions and a fully automated user experience.
From Cannabis Tech: “Seedo produces the world’s first fully automated intelligent hydroponic indoor grow system for cannabis as well as other herbs and vegetables. No prior knowledge or experience is needed to start growing plants in Seedo’s device, as the system completely self-grows plants from seed to flower — completely sealed off from pests and plant diseases, which also means the crops are pesticide-free.” The units are hermetically sealed during use, so no aromas are able to leak out during crop growth.
So far, the company reports that pre-order clients are providing excellent feedback to their first grows. In June, the company announced a strategic partnership with OutForm, a “future retail company to develop Seedo’s retail branding strategy in the U.S. and to optimize Seedo’s current U.S. distribution channels and supply chain.”
Additonally, in March 2019, Seedo announced a partnership with Kibbutz Dan in northern Israel for developing fully automated commercial cannabis farms within shipping containers.
