Can you imagine waking up in the morning, eating breakfast then loading your Keurig machine with your favorite cup of fresh coffee, then loading up your favorite strain of cannabis into a different Keurig to fill a vapor thermos? That is the vision of year-old startup CannaKorp. Earlier this month they announced plans to develop a single serve pod-based cannabis system. This will allow users to heat their strain of choice into vapor for immediate consumption. Known as the CannaCloud, it has been nicknamed the “Keurig of Cannabis.”
To use it, a person takes a premeasured amount of product in a pod container and loads it into a compartment on the bottom of the travel size canister. The canister attaches to the base that superheats the cannabis transforming it into vapor. On the end of the canister is a one-way spout that opens up, allowing the user access the vapor.
The resemblance to the Keurig pod-based concept is the due to Dave Manly, who is CEO of CannaKorp who retired from the senior vice president position at Keurig in 2014, after spending the last 13 years growing the company from a $50 million corporation to a $5 billion plus giant. Quality and consistency are staples of the Keurig brand, giving consumers the same level of quality out of each cup. His expertise will bring a regulated quality to the cannabis industry that can be very unnerving for new customers. Many-a-person is concerned about the potency, quality and what they are smoking, which are commonplace factors with the use of cannabis. Manly informs the public that each of the CannaKorp cannabis pods will be labeled by strain, brand, and strength. Edibles have been a hassle for consumers with inaccurate labeling leaving you too high or feeling as if you wasted your money.
Partnerships with labs are in development along with navigating the sticky legal obstacles that come with the legitimate cannabis industry. While still in development, cannabis users can hopefully look forward to a fresh cup of cannabis with your breakfast or when they get home from a long day.
