Marijuana Industry Using Technology to Improve Growing, Selling and Delivering

Marijuana businesses are increasingly using technology to grow, test, sell and deliver their product, according to CBS News.

“As things have come above board and more financing has become available and companies become less threatened that they would be put out of business, they have been more willing to invest in technology that is making cannabis products safer and more effective,” said Donald P. Land, a University of California, Davis, professor who is the chief scientific consultant for the cannabis testing firm Steep Hill.

The company tests for pesticides, heavy metals and the level of active ingredients in marijuana. Steep Hill recently introduced a mobile testing lab that can test the potency and moisture of marijuana in minutes, the article notes.
