CannaKorp is a Stoneham-based startup that has earned the title of "Keurig for weed" because of the single-use, pod-based cannabis vaporizing system it has developed, and investors are lining up.

The company announced on Thursday that it has closed a $4.1 million Series A round led by private equity firm Singularity Capital Management, which focuses on the cannabis industry. This brings total funding to $5.7 million.
