Investors Pack $16M Into Illumitex for LEDs as Medical Marijuana Gains

Lighting company Illumitex Inc. is illuminating not buildings and streets, but plants like marijuana.  The growth in its market has helped the company secure a new round of funding, as Dow Jones VentureWire reported.

The Austin, Texas-based company’s light emitting diode lamps can be customized to produce wavelengths and intensity specific to facilitating the growth of a particular plant. Illumitex’s lamps are mostly used to grow greenhouse tomatoes and leafy greens indoors, but medical marijuana is a newer and advancing market, said Chief Executive Chris Hammelef. The company is also exploring the use of its lights in human skin-care, such as for acne and in anti-aging.

A cannabis startup wants you to choose your own high

 

What if you could choose exactly the type of high you felt when you smoked a joint or ate a pot brownie?

Scientists at the cannabis company Ebbu are creating marijuana extracts to conjure up the kind of mood you’d like to feel. They want consumers to experience one of their five branded feelings: giggle, create, energy, chill, and bliss.

“Consumers don’t purchase edibles based on flavoring, they purchase based on how it’s going to make the person feel,” says Dooma Wendschuh, co-founder of Ebbu.

According to experts, marijuana in its raw form is totally unpredictable, which is why most first-time users don’t know what to expect when they try it. Ebbu is trying to take that unknown factor out of the equation.

Dutch company E-Njoint develops cannabis e-cigarette

Dutch company E-Njoint has developed a smokeless and flameless electronic cannabis vaporizer in the shape of a real joint. E-Njoint created a "3 in 1 vaporizer" which, depending on the legality of cannabis in a country, can be filled with real dry cannabis leaves, cannabis oil or wax. When consumed, the vaporizer leaves very little smoke after exhaling and practically no smell, especially if the cartridge is filled with oil or wax.

The vaporizer heats up electronically to 187C, which is just enough heat to vaporize cannabis ingredients THC and CBD, but not enough to produce carcinogenic flames, tar or ash.

Powering Pot

There, we said it. Cannabis cultivation facilities are coming to large warehouses in your service territory. Are you ready?

What’s the big deal? They use A LOT of power. Between grow lights, HVAC systems, and humidity controls, indoor cultivation facilities are adding significant megawatts to your load. This is a new issue. Though utilities have faced the large-load challenges of Data Centers, Indoor Agriculture/Cultivation Facilities have more regulatory obstacles, higher risk, and great opportunities. How are utilities in states where marijuana is legal navigating this new industry? What can you learn from them for when it comes to your state?
