Start-up Creates ‘the Keurig of Marijuana’

This tech start-up wants to do for legal marijuana what Keurig did for coffee.

Massachusetts-based CannaKorp has developed what it claims to be the world’s first single-use pod-based cannabis vaporizer system — the CannaCloud — which some users have dubbed “the Keurig of marijuana.”

“Our company’s goal is to simplify and improve the cannabis consumer experience,” co-founder and CEO James Winokur told CNBC.

To work the device, a user first inserts a CannaCloud Pod (similar to a K-Cup, but filled with marijuana) into the bottom of a hollow canister. Next, the canister is placed into the CannaCloud device to start the vaporization. (The canister fills with vapor in about a minute.) The user then removes the canister, and inhales the vapor through the mouthpiece. As soon as the user stops inhaling, the one-way mouthpiece closes off the remaining vapor.
