Despite the fact that the growing of marijuana is yet to be fully legalized in the United States, industry innovators haven't stopped thinking ahead.
As a matter of fact, the plant is only legal on a medical level in just 23 states. Clearly, there's still more work to be done.
However, there's a company that just created Leaf, the first-ever "Plug-N-Plant" cannabis growing system.
According to TechCrunch, the device, which looks like a suitcase from space, can fit up to two marijuana plants.
Keep in mind, there are plenty of people out there growing this stuff with the right housing containers.
But, Leaf isn't just a place to store your plants. It can monitor them and control the amount of light, ventilation and nutrients delivered to them.
Users have the ability to connect to their Leaf devices using their smartphones, allowing them to view and monitor environmental data in real time. You can even tap into a live stream, which broadcasts your plants through a built-in HD camera.
Long story short, you can achieve the master grower of cannabis title from your smartphone.
Leaf will retail for a cool $1,499. Sure, that sounds steep, but if you think about the fact that the retail value for 4 to 5 ounces of marijuana, which is just a single growth cycle, is priced at about $1,200, it doesn't seem so pricy.
You would basically be making all of your money back.
The only money you'd be spending after the initial purchase would be on nutrient cartridges and carbon filter refills at a combined priced of $150.
The device will only be made available to people with medicinal cards in any of the 23 states (plus DC) where medical marijuana is legal. Users in any of the select states where marijuana is legal can also get their hands on these.
Leaf is set to ship in the summer of 2016, but the device can be preordered here.
Now, if they'll just legalize this stuff nationwide...
