CannaPods and PonicPods are proprietary, scalable and customizable portable grow rooms built with leading edge technologies to produce light weight, rigid, insulating panels and an exoskeleton designed for strength and stability. This allows the pod to be portable, easy to construct and de-construct, double-stacked, customized by room size, sanitary, energy efficient, long lasting and economical. When CannaPods are integrated with digital control systems the environment created can help standardized methods of growing cannabis. Due to the insulating nature of the pod's panels, growers are allowed to control air temperature, water temperature, humidity levels, CO2, and ventilation methods with pinpoint accuracy. This is important because it reduces risks of grow room disease that can destroy crops and, with the control software provided, can help growers track data that can help maximize yields.
Cannabis/Medical Marijuana Sector Commentary: IBISWorld Research published a report that determined the medical marijuana industry revenue could reach $8.4 billion by 2019.

Using this new vaporization technique, the Vapor Box THB delivers consistent vapor puff after puff, without the eventual burnt taste caused by harsh chemicals generated by combustion. It is truly a sophisticated breakthrough in how vaporizers work! And, it has been designed to sustain a 10,000 hour work life.
