Start-Up Company Developing “Refrigerator” To Grow Marijuana
We’re sure you know at least ONE person who has tried to grow their own weed. Welp, you can let that person know that their hopes and dreams may soon be answered based on this Reviewed story.
Growing your own weed has some seedy associations: the rumored cannabis patch behind the local high school, the spacy dude with a basement full of hydroponic herb, or maybe just an illicit plant or two hidden in an otherwise-ordinary garden.
But with more states and lobbyist groups pushing for medical or recreational marijuana use, a startup called Leaf is trying to capitalize on the craze with smart, fridge-like grow boxes specifically made for growing marijuana at home.
The boxes are automated and connected, made to fit inside your home without taking up too much space or attention (“Think of it as a beautiful mini fridge,” reads LEAF’s website). An active carbon filter prevents your weed garden from lending the surrounding air that telltale pot smell, and the companion app helps both beginners and more advanced growers get the perfect herb.
From the app, you can watch step-by-step instruction videos or check on your plants via a live webcam. The app also lets you monitor and alter grow conditions like air temperature, water temperature, pH, humidity, water level, and plant height. It even provides grow recipes, lets you find recipes created by other growers, or create your own. The whole process is precise and automatic, which means you can be as hands-on (or off) as you’d like.
This sound like something you smokers would be interested in?
