Technology seems to be changing everything around us and influencing the way we do things these days, and that is also the case for cannabis users who now have a range of hi-tech options to improve their experience and even make things safer.
Here is a look at some of the innovative ways to consume cannabis, plus an insight into some of the latest apps and gadgets that will help you monitor and control your consumption. There are details of a hi-tech grinding solution, how to turn your phone into a set of scales, and an insight into moves to reduce drug driving.
When preparing is no longer a grind
There are many cannabis gadgets that are worthy of your attention and among them is a range of innovative products that aim to show you a new approach to grinding, packing and storing your preferred herb.
One of these products is the PenSimple. Investment money is flowing freely into the cannabis market in light of the growing acceptance and legalization of the substance in an increasing number of states. The PenSimple is an example of the innovative technology fueled by this investment and is billed by some enthusiasts as the grinder of the future.
This product does what it says on the tin and all you have to do is drop in a few nuggets of cannabis, twist the lid and let the technology do the rest. The weed gets ground by the anodized super-efficient, aircraft-grade aluminum grinder teeth and then drops down into the main storage compartment.
A simple push of the button will provide a perfect distribution of the cannabis and you won’t have to worry about spilling any with this level of accuracy.
Cannabis and tech come together
There is an app for pretty much anything now so it is no surprise that weed lovers are well catered for when it comes to gadgets for their smartphone. A similar concept to food delivery apps, Grassdoor delivers a fast and reliable marijuana delivery service to Los Angeles, California., which is one of the world’s largest cannabis markets.
You might wonder at first how app developers could come up with some ways to enhance the cannabis experience, but they have certainly given it a good go.
A weed scale is an essential part of the equipment you need and Weed Scale 4.20 turns your smartphone into an instant set of scales when you open the app. You will have to set up the calibration when you first load the app but users claim that it can be accurate right down to 0.1 grams.
Medical marijuana is gaining wider acceptance by the day and if you want to access legal weed with your medical marijuana card, the EazeMD app is designed to help you do that.
Also, If you want to connect with like-minded cannabis users, Duby is an app that aims to offer you all the usual social media aspects that you would find on sites like Facebook and others, but this one is a mixture of them all and wants to make the cannabis experience as social and interactive as it can.
Put that in your pipe
It stands to reason that technology is going to try and improve all aspects of your cannabis use and the not-so-modestly titled Genius Pipe is aiming high and wants to become the go-to smoking device of the future for all cannabis consumers.
Fair play to the designers, they have given it their best shot at coming up with a pipe that delivers a clean, healthy and enjoyable user experience.
The secret is apparently in the dimple technology (no more clues are given) which efficiently filters out those harmful resins and tars while managing to cool your smoke to what is considered the perfect temperature for your maximum enjoyment.
The designers will at least say that their dimple technology borrows from a range of hi-tech applications that include state-of-the-art fighter jets and nuclear energy plants, so put that in your pipe and smoke it, in the nicest way possible.
Say no to stoned driving
Police forces are waking up to the dangers of drivers under the influence of drugs and a number of them now deploy a pot breathalyzer.
It makes sense that you enjoy your cannabis consumption but stay safe to drive, which is why HoundLabs are working furiously to put the finishing touches to the world’s first marijuana breathalyzer to be available that works by measuring THC levels in your breath.
There are plenty of gadgets available now that are useful to cannabis users and who knows what innovations will be announced in the near future?
