While the war on drugs in the United States is still very much active, the rest of the world appears to be taking a different approach to marijuana innovation. At a recent tech conference about marijuana, several notable CEOs talked about how it appears the industry is headed in a positive direction.
There were some who worried that if legalization was not happening at a fast pace, people would still be prohibited from adding marijuana to their regular lives. However, some countries and American states are pushing ahead with legalization, and medical marijuana seems to be more accepted now than it was 10 or 15 years ago. And that means those within the marijuana industry can see the possibility for significantly increased profits. And when the possibility for more profit is present, it means that technology will soon follow.
How Tech Impacts Marijuana
It is not just the United States where you are seeing marijuana become more prominent. Other countries are taking a big initiative, such as Israel. One of the greatest technologies to come out of Israel is a product called Seedo. It is a device that you can use to automatically grow cannabis. All of the intricacies that are required when you are growing cannabis are handled by this product, which means that growers have a much easier time ensuring their plant is meeting all the necessary criteria for increased THC and/or CBD output.
There is also DryGair, which is getting a lot of attention. With DryGair, it is possible to limit humidity and get an incredible level of control on how the temperature is handled within a commercial growing facility. It is a lot easier to get uniform temperatures and humidity throughout a facility, even if it is a very large one.
With CannaTech recently concluding, there is plenty of breaking news on CBD oil that you may want to read about. The latest stories not only talk about the health benefits of the oil, but mention how new technologies are making CBD products even better for consumers.
There are so many markets for cannabis emerging in the world. Countries like Germany, Spain and Canada are emerging markets, and tech experts are seeing new ways to integrate technologies into the growth and sale of cannabis.
Aside from new tech being used with cannabis, research is also seeing an impressive boom. For instance, one study is showing how the different types of cannabis extracts can fight against cancer cell lines in the body. Such research is not only going to help cannabis sellers, because it creates a much larger market, but it could provide breakthroughs for the healthcare industries around the world.
There will always be some stigma attached to cannabis, especially when it comes to recreational use. However, it appears the world is becoming very accepting of medical marijuana and CBD oil as possibilities for helping people with a number of conditions. And it certainly appears as though technology is keeping up with this progress!
