- Better Cannabis Production and Processing. “Expect to see huge improvements in the levels of cannabis quality being produced and processed. Everyone wants extracts, edibles and concentrates. I expect to see 2019 focused on making the process more automated creating this new wave of production.”
- More Active Ingredients and Fewer Strains. “In 2019, I expect to see less and less about strains and more and more about active ingredients. Extracts are growing month by month and the focus is more on levels of THC and CBD (among other cannabinoids). With the increased popularity with vape pens, the active ingredients will become more popular and affect how things will be branded.”
Based on Cloudponics’ positioning within the industry, we can infer that Nico’s third prediction for 2019 is that continued legalization continues driving demand for at-home cultivation technologies.
This unofficial prediction comes as an assumption based on the fact that Cloudponics, the maker of the GroBox, has raised $700,000 to continue growing his business that is predicated on the growth of the at-home-cultivation industry. Regardless of how much progress is made towards cannabis legalization in 2019, Cloudponics is well-positioned thanks to the versatility of its technology.
The GroBox is a smartphone-controlled, fully-autonomous and self-sustaining hydroponics grow system that not only works for growing marijuana, but also works well for growing your own vegetables at home – a trend which has been stedily rising for years.
