A major factor contributing to cannabis industry success is smart technology. As legalization becomes more accepted globally, people realize that there has never been a better time to invest in this revolutionary industry.
In this blog post, we will discuss why cannabis technology is so important to the budding cannabis industry. Innovative technology is changing the cannabis industry because it can provide data on a wide range of critical activities, including cultivation. Which means you have a higher chance of getting better yields.
Cultivation- Smart Grow Rooms
Through smart grow rooms, growers can optimize their growth and use less natural resources. This also makes for more consistent results than meet expectations.
With sensors in place to track environmental changes such as humidity or light levels, cannabis technology allows growers to adjust accordingly during different growth phases to avoid surprises when harvesting time comes around.
Growers are using automation to remotely monitor all aspects of their grow room from anywhere at any time without needing an employee present 24/365 - meaning there's no need for additional staff and personnel costs.
With cannabis smart technology, it's easy to measure the temperature in your grow room so you don't end up with mold or other issues that can affect crop quality if left unchecked.
Smart technologies also eliminate human error from cultivation - an issue growers face when a human is present 24/365 for plant care duties.
Retail and Personalization
Cannabis artificial intelligence also affects the customer experience and their ability to connect with products.
Some retailers use AI technology to find the perfect cannabis strain for a particular consumer depending on what they need, where they live, or even if they have any allergies.
Some dispensaries also use AI to make it easier for customers at checkout, so there's no need to wait in long lines. The dispensary can use smart software that will automatically verify IDs or scan an ID card from your phone without scanning anything else like your license or other identification - making transactions faster than ever before.
Cannabis retailers are now able to create unique shopping experiences based on a user's preferences. These personalized shopping experiences utilize past purchases and product browsing to create a customized shopping experience.
These new technologies will have an impact on the way we think about what cannabis is. Cannabis smart technology has made it possible for us to change our perception of cannabis consumption by using data science and machine learning methods that analyze consumer behavior at every stage of the product cycle. These cycles happen before purchase, while consuming products, or returning them after use.
This will help stores find more effective ways to retain customers through customer segmentation strategies like sending personalized messages based on their preferences rather than generic promotions, which may not resonate with certain audiences.
Enhanced Cannabis Genetics
Enhanced cannabis genetics has been an important part of the cannabis industry for quite some time now, with breeders and scientists alike working to develop new strains that are better suited for specific needs.
Smart technology has opened up several possibilities in this area as well. New advances in plant breeding technologies such as AI-assisted selection have already begun to change how we think about genetics by making it easier than ever to find what works best locally or regionally without traveling overseas.
In addition, machine learning techniques may help improve our understanding of which genes produce certain desirable effects like pain relief or weight loss. Using data from sensors on production equipment (such as lighting systems) can give useful information back out - helping growers create more successful products.
Artificial intelligence also used in cannabis agriculture. They can be incorporated into all phases of cultivation, from seedlings to mature plants and the harvesting and curing process.
Nanoencapsulation and Bioavailability
Bioavailability and nanotechnology are becoming more popular in cannabis, with their potential for improving the effects of a drug.
Nanoencapsulation has been used to improve the bioavailability of cannabinoids by protecting them while they are being digested and delaying release into circulation until it reaches a specific organ.
Bioavailability is defined as "the amount that enters systemic circulation," which can be affected by factors such as how long something takes to go through your digestive system or what form you take it in (e.g., oral vs. sublingual). You might have seen this term before when marketing vitamins because some forms like chewable may not absorb well enough to make any difference, whereas others like vitamin pills do so much better.
