An Automatic Home Cannabis System Is Coming

Growing pot has never been easier.

The future of growing marijuana at home is about to be as simple as “plug and plant.” Last week at TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF 2015 Startup Battlefield, the creators of Leafpresented an automated solution to the age-old problem of how to grow weed in your home without being a professional plumber, electrician or horticulturist—or taking up a vast amount of space with an ugly tent.

This sophisticated yet elegant appliance provides the optimal environment based on the particular strain you’re growing, giving it just the right light and nutrients. Best of all, you can monitor the pH, air temp, humidity, plant growth, etc. all through the companion smartphone app. It really solves most of the hardships in trying to grow pot.

A fully refundable $100 deposit reserves you a unit at $1,500—it’ll retail for several hundred more—expected to ship next summer. In the meantime, it’s probably a good idea to check out the legality of growing marijuana in the first place, lest your new investment cost you some jail-time.
