Pokemon Pokeball Weed Grinder

pokeweed

So this looks like the sort of item you better buy now, because we can hear the lawyers writing their Cease & Desist letters already. It’s a Pokeball, but you won’t catch any pocket monster with it. Instead, you’ll use it to grind up your fine botanicals and put yourself in the mood to spend all day playing that game. It’s not as if you’re not already doing that, of course, but you know… you might as well take it to an extreme and Pokemon errthing.

It’s $22.

Pod-based Marijuana Vaporizers Are On The Horizon

cannacloud-ed

Look, let’s not pretend like the marijuana industry isn’t about to boom. It’s just a matter of time before it’s legal everywhere, and entrepreneurs with a bit of foresight are already taking steps to consolidate their bite of the nascent (legal) market. The latest to stake their claim is a Massachusetts company called CannaKorp, who’ve announced the development of CannaCloud, a pod-based marijuana vaporizer. It’s understandably being called the Keurig for weed, as it uses plastic pods with pre-ground marijuana leaves of various strains, strengths, and composition. The user only has to pick his ‘flavour’, pop the pod in, and wait for the device to do the rest. While there are tons of vaporizers on the market already, they do require a little bit of a learning curve, from grinding the material to packing in in correctly, to setting the temperature. The CannaCloud takes all the guesswork out.

The company has already raised $1.58 million in investment and plans to launch sometime in 2017. They plan to sell CannaCloud between $149-$179, which seems to be a perfect range for the kind of device being offered. We’ll keep an eye on the scene.

Overengineered Growbox Lets Your Grow Your Own Weed At Home With Very Little Know-How

cabin-with-plants1

In 23 states where medical marijuana is legal, as well a the 4 where it’s simply legal, you can grow your own weed. Now, you could do this in many ways, from simply planting it in your garden, to creating a professional hydroponic setup. But both of these methods require some TLC from you, as well as a decent amount of know-how. It’s not like you couldn’t, you know, learn, but if you can’t be bothered, Leaf is for you. They call it a Plug-N-Plant device, which is kind of clever because well, it pretty much does everything for you.

The system will monitor everything that your plants need to grow, including light, ventilation, nutrient levels and pH of the soil.

The system will also react to these measurements, meaning that if it senses that your plants are low on nutrients it can dispense more, or if it needs more light it can automatically brighten the environment. Users can also control these variables manually, effectively creating their own grow “recipes.”

The 4′ by 2′ box can grow two plants, which will apparently yield between 4 to 5 ounces of weed. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well… that’s until you see the price: $1,499. That’s a lot of dollars for something you can do for a fraction of that cost, if only you take the time. But we suppose that’s what luxury is all about.

The company says that the machine will technically pay for itself after just a few months, as the “retail value” of 4-5 ounces (one growth cycle) is around $1,200.

Additionally, each grow will cost about $150 in nutrient cartridges and carbon filter refills. However, co-founder and CEO Yoni Ofir said that eventually the company hopes to drop the price of the actual device and generate its primary revenue from refills (à la Keurig).

Perhaps Leaf is then worth reconsidering when or if prices do drop, unless you’re the deep-pocketed early adopter type. If you are, you can reserve one with a $100 deposit, and shipping summer 2016.

MagicalButter Machine Makes Weed Butter For Fantastic Brownies

MB2_110V_Package__45039.1407446661.1280.1280

Making your own weed butter at home is no simple task. Your dwelling usually ends up smelling really strong, and it’s just a generally somewhat labor intensive process. Not so with the MagicalButter MB2. Looking somewhat like a teapot, you simply have to drop your herbs in, some butter, and press a button. The machine takes care of the rest, producing THC-infused butter which you’re then free to use in your various recipes. Magic cookies? Check. Magic caramel-wrapped stick of butter, Homer Simpson-style? Check.

Granted, it’s a little expensive at $175. But if you’re stayed away from baking your own magical goods because of the effort required to make the butter, here’s your solution. Incidentally, the MB2 is not restricted to making butter, but can also make oils and tinctures, is self-cleaning, and doesn’t look like anything a stoner might use. This way you can go somewhat incognito, if that’s your thing.
