What are the benefits of using AI in cannabis production?

Sustainable Investing / Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence or AI allows computers to use a huge amount of data to independently decide or perform an activity. These devices can perceive and analyze their environment and, with a certain degree of autonomy, make decisions to achieve specific goals. 

Systems based on artificial intelligence can be based exclusively on software and operate in the virtual world (virtual assistants, photo analysis software, Internet browsers, speech and face recognition systems) or they can be embedded in devices and hardware (advanced robots, autonomous vehicles, drones, and so on).

Artificial intelligence facilitates and improves people’s lives in various fields. At the same time, its accelerated development and application open numerous questions in the sphere of security and ethics. 

It shouldn’t be surprising that AI has made its way into the cannabis industry. Artificial intelligence has the power to increase output, increase effectiveness, and even make the entire process of production a lot easier.

Consumption

Another important aspect that AI helps with is consumption. Essentially, it helps in packaging, labeling, and the user experience.

To verify that consumers receive the product they have purchased and are anticipating, like bongs, state-of-the-art hand pipes, and any other devices or accessories, and ensure that any applicable rules are being followed, AI can help predict any issues that may come. It can help users when it comes to education which will directly increase the interest and the consumption itself.

Important Data (temperature, light exposure, quality…)

AI can gather data on the ideal conditions for producing cannabis plants of the highest quality. Having data on the appropriate temperature, watering, fertilizer, and light exposure levels for cultivating a specific strain affects the production quality. Then, to guarantee that plants always get what they need, they can autonomously recreate those conditions.

Maintaining great environmental conditions yields an extraordinarily reliable crop and reduces loss. By automatically identifying circumstances that are likely to result in disease and resolving problems as they appear, AI can help combat plant diseases. Cannabis farmers can then simply stop the spread of diseases by identifying diseased plants as soon as possible.

Security/Protection

Additionally, AI can help make cannabis growing and growth facilities safer and less vulnerable to intruders. Animal invasions are a very common issue for all outdoor agricultural businesses.

While no technology can fully prevent animal invasion at the moment, AI can greatly enhance your security efforts with precise automated reporting. The prevention of human invasions can be accomplished using the same technologies.

Many security systems are susceptible to false alarms, especially when used outside where the wind or an unthreatening animal could accidentally trigger the system.

In addition to being exceedingly costly and frustrating, these incorrect reports have the potential to effectively make an entire security system ineffective over time. By assessing risks and only alerting businesses to actual attacks, AI makes security “smart.”

Less Waste

Unfortunately, the legalization of cannabis in the US has harmed the environment. Cannabis producers have contributed significantly to high energy use and the creation of garbage harmful to their local communities. The fact that 80% of cannabis is now cultivated indoors significantly contributes to the issue.

While growing cannabis indoors offers unparalleled control over how the plant grows, it also consumes significant energy. The good news is that AI may be able to drastically reduce the generation of cannabis waste in several ways. 

It provides very specific recommendations for the soil, nutrients, light, and water needed for development and cultivation. As a result, producers can instantly stop using resources that are not necessary, saving both money and the environment from waste.

Distribution

Distribution is another field that can benefit from AI. For instance, by including weather reports and other important data points, AI systems can suggest new routes, correctly predict delays, and in other ways, assist cannabis companies in understanding the best approach to market their product.

The transportation and shipping industries have already benefited for years from this real-time distributive analysis. Cannabis technology will become applied in a way that not only increases productivity. In addition, lowers costs but also almost eliminates the possibility of supply chain problems.
