Growing cannabis can be very difficult for those who have no experience so it was only a matter of time before new products would be available to help those inclined. So MERRY JANE put together a list of some products that can help those who want to start growing their own cannabis.
Grobo – A simple and easy way to start growing your own cannabis is with the Grobo – a rectangle box that can grow plants pretty in a stealthy environment. Users can place seeds in the growing medium made from recycled coconut husks and tell the Grobo what’s been planted so it can deliver the proper water and nutrients. An app was created to help the user monitor the Grobo if necessary. The Grobo monitors the plant with sensors that can determine how much water is absorbed by the plant and measure its height which allows the app to make adjustments to the growing schedule. The Grobo utilizes LED lighting for low power consumption and sports a cooling system to ensure that the box is well ventilated. Grobo CEO, Bjorn Dawson, mentioned that when he originally designed the grow box that it was made for smaller plants but was inspired by the challenges Canadians face growing medical cannabis in their homes. "We’re really just trying to make it as easy as possible for people to access fresh produce and medication," Dawson told The Verge.
Cash Crop 5.0 – Another grow box that patients can use to grow up to five pounds of dried plant matter a year is available in the form of the Cash Crop 5.0. This box has the ability to grow up to six plants at once which utilizes an LED lighting system and air pump to produce richly oxygenated water for the plants. While this box doesn’t support any advanced apps to monitor your grow the product comes with instructions on growing plus unlimited phone and email support from the company. This is another great product for those who want to start growing cannabis in a stealthy environment and who are afraid of growing outdoors.
