BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LEAF today announced the launch of a new Plug-N-Plant™ grow system, a smart home appliance that lets users grow their own cannabis, food and herbs from the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Designed to automate the time-consuming and tedious process of cannabis growing, LEAF connects to your smartphone to let you control all aspects of the home growing process remotely. The company has raised $2 million in seed funding from VCs including CJV Capital, Phyto Partners, Advanced Nutrients and other angel investors.
LEAF is a revolutionary at-home system that completely automates the growing process, including climate control, nutrient dosing, pH balancing and more. The sleek device is paired with a mobile app for iOS and Android that offers an easy-to-use interface and beautiful design. It also has the optional ability to connect to your home's water and sewage for automated watering. With high tech sensors and patent pending automation technology, LEAF allows anyone to be successful while growing high quality cannabis or food, regardless of prior experience. LEAF growers can also easily create, share and use "grow recipes" for various cannabis strains and plants from other users, which allows them to optimize plant growth and techniques together. The LEAF unit costs $2,990 will be shipping in fall 2017; LEAF is currently taking online pre-order deposits of $300.
"We are thrilled to finally launch a beautiful, smart home device that allows people to grow cannabis within their own homes, easily and conveniently," said Yoni Ofir, cofounder / CEO of LEAF. "With eight states recently passing laws that allow more widespread cannabis usage, the cannabis industry is undergoing a revolution and we're excited that LEAF is a part of it."
The company was co-founded by Yoni Ofir and Eran Mordechay in April 2015 after Ofir became frustrated with the unreasonable amount of time, money and effort it took to grow his own cannabis for medical purposes. After creating LEAF for his personal use, Ofir received a high level of demand from friends for units of their own, inspiring him to launch the business. With an ounce of medicinal marijuana costing $300 on average and concerns about the use of pesticides, consumers all over the country have already expressed great demand for LEAF as a solid investment.
LEAF offers the following features to help users grow an average of 4 ounces of cannabis every three to four months:
- Smartphone app with step-by-step video instructions (iOS and Android)
- Full-climate control system
- Automatic nutrient dosing
- Automatic pH balancing
- Built-in camera to track progress in real time and create beautiful timelapse videos
- BIOS LED 200W lighting system
- Blue-enhanced spectrum to promote improved plant morphology and quality
- Tempered glass optic for spot-free cleaning and optimal light transmission
- Active carbon filter to neutralize odors
