Cannabis technology has been booming lately, as legalization continues to spread across the country. The legal market has merged nature with technology and the result are many new devices and inventions all designed to make your cannabis experience more enjoyable. Check out the following gems in the canna-tech world!
Mota Pot ($49+)
Making edibles can be a tricky endeavor, especially if you don’t already consider yourself at least a mediocre chef. The Mota Pot is a nifty invention that helps take the guesswork and mess-ups out of creating edibles. It will help you make THC-infused butter or oil without all the hard work. Plus, it only takes 10 minutes of heat to make the building block for your edible!

This stash box is far from a stereotypical mason jar in a shoe box. The Cannador is a state-of-the-art, technological wonder. The beautiful, wood, handcrafted boxes help keep your marijuana at the perfect temperature and humidity. How can you tell? With their Blustream Hygrometer and app system. With this setup you’ll be able to always know both the humidity level and temperature inside your Cannador. It will also alert you if either of the readings are too high or too low. And, it works as a security system since it can give you a warning if the sensor has been impacted (i.e. jostled around from someone handling it).

Hydra 9 ($250)
This super space-age looking vaporizer is pretty amazing when you look at what it does. While not available quite yet, the Hydra 9 from Cloudious 9 uses cutting edge technology to provide you with a stellar cannabis experience. This water filtration vapor is one-of-a-kind. It also allows you to ensure even heating without overheating, which can be an issue with some vaporizers on the market. Plus, there are LED lights that cycle through the water filtration section in soothing colors, alerting you when it’s ready to use, needs to cool down and more.

My Dx Analyzer & CannaDx Sensor Kit ($699)
Yes, the price tag is steep, but for many, it may just be worth the price. This kit will let any at-home cannabis enthusiast know what the THC and CBD levels are for any strain in their possession. It can also test for other specific terpenes and cannabinoids and will soon offer an add-on that can test for pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Test and calculate various percentages of your own cannabis, or ensure you’re receiving exactly what you ordered from other sources. The kit is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, so you can keep all the information you want right at your fingertips.
LEAF Home Grow System ($2,990)
At almost $3,000, the LEAF is expensive, but it could also be considered an investment in your future cannabis. This one time purchase can end up yielding you thousands of dollars more in cannabis over time. LEAF makes the indoor growing of plants incredibly easy, so you don’t even need a green thumb to try! And, you can control it all from your smartphone, whether you’re in the next room or the next state over from your seedlings. An added bonus, you can also grow a number of food plants like kale, peppers, basil, strawberries, and more.
