Without question, technology and innovation have changed everything we know about cannabis, including how we consume it. In fact, the technology is advancing so rapidly, it can be challenging to keep up!
At Cannabis Tech, we typically cover the science and technology behind the scenes of the cannabis and hemp industries. But this year, we decided to pull together a list of some of the most innovative cannabis consumer technology — just in time for the holidays! Whether they grow, smoke, vape, or eat cannabis, the shopping guide below has something for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
Gifts for Cannabis Growers
As Ed Rosenthal taught us, “Growing cannabis is addictive!” For many, the simple act of growing the plant is cathartic and supremely satisfying. Just as many gardeners gain a sense of pride from the fruits of their labor, cannabis enthusiasts also love the accomplishment of growing their own cannabis.
Growing cannabis at home is getting easier. From the incredible all-inclusive grow tents from Bud Grower -- to the elegant and stylish Armoire by Green Goddess -- or the practical, efficient, Grobo-- there are many options for the hobbyist.
Gifts for Cannabis Smokers
Although smoking cannabis is one of the most primitive ways to consume the herb, it is still one of the most popular. New technology is providing better and more efficient ways to inhale.
For those consumers who still love to smoke joints, The OTTO provides a quick, efficient way to grind the herb and fill a cone at the press of a button. The perfect gift for the gadget-loving cannabis consumer on your list.
On the other hand, many traditional smokers are transitioning from combusting cannabis to vaporizing the dry herb — as a safer way to inhale. Several manufacturers offer devices that allow consumers to boil off the cannabinoids rather than burn the cannabis material. A few shown in our guide include,
Gifts for Cannabis Concentrate Lovers
Cannabis concentrates are an increasingly popular choice among consumers. However, after the EVALI 2019 crisis, vape manufacturers are stepping up their game. Devices like the GPen Connect and the Dr. Dabber Evo Boost provide consumers with the technology to improve their dabbing experience. From temperature control to portability, several new devices on the market bring a range of conveniences.
Gifts for the Cannabis Cook
Making edibles at home has become a popular way to consume cannabis. Edibles avoid inhalation and any risk of lung damage and provide a more prolonged effect. However, making canna-butter isn’t without challenges, like odor, potency, and dosing.
But with new technologies available, long gone are the days of oven-baked brownies smelling up the entire apartment complex. With small kitchen appliances like the LEVO and the product line from Ardent, amateur cannabis chefs have all the tools they need right on their countertops. Combined with the in-house potency testing technology of tCheck, cannabis consumers now can accurately and safely dose their personal goodies.
Lasers, for the Ultimate High-Tech High
Two new devices have recently entered the market, bringing a whole new “high” to high-tech cannabis consumption with laser beams! If you really want to put the “wow” in gift-giving this year, then these two devices should do the trick!
- Hitoki Trident - the laser-powered bong that heats cannabis flower
- The Beam - the laser-powered dab-rig that uses blue-ray technology to vaporize concentrates
