CannaKorp

Because the wave of marijuana legalization lifts the nation out of its longstanding fog of prohibition, one former Keurig government and his forty-one thing marijuana fanatic pal have discovered a option to journey all of it the best way to the financial institution: By making a vaporizer with single-serving, disposable pot pods. As a result of, sooner or later, the whole lot will come in a pod.

The system, which is unsurprisingly being referred to as the “a Keurig for marijuana,” is definitely named the CannaCloud. And it was designed by Massachusetts resident Michael Bourque, who had a nasty expertise shopping for weed in a parking zone off of “a man that appeared like ZZ Prime” one time. Though legalization would get rid of that time-of-sale drawback totally, in Bourque’s blissfully mellow imaginative and prescient on the longer term, nobody will ever should cope with smoking harsh joints and even touching plant matter in any respect, if that is their vibe.

Let’s ignore for a second the truth that there are many different vaporizers already available on the market — in each pocket and tabletop measurement — that accomplish precisely the identical perform because the CannaCloud, however with out the necessity for gadget-particular pods. That barrier did not cease tens of millions from from shopping for into Keurig’s espresso machines, in fact. And that’s what Bourque’s enterprise associate and former Keurig Inexperienced Mountain VP Dave Manly is banking on.

After displaying the system to a spotlight group, “individuals stated, ‘Oh my God, how briskly can I’ve a type of?'” Manly advised the Boston Globe. “Which is strictly what individuals stated once they noticed the Keurig.” It’s unclear whether or not or not this focus group included any precise marijuana consumption.

On the brilliant aspect, CannaKorp guarantees quite a lot of strains to go well with the consumer’s desired impact, they usually do boast a variety of cultivator-companions. Whereas there is no launch date but, CannaKorp simply raised a $1.fifty eight million seed spherical with the plan to launch someday in 2017. The system will reportedly value someplace within the $149-$179 vary and there is additionally an accompanying system referred to as a “CannaMatic” meant to assist growers grind and package deal their product. All that is left to do is work out the way to deal with the inevitable trash pile of cashed CannaCups.
