Could mood specific cannabis strains be the next big thing?

Many people who use cannabis and CBD for well-being or to deal with their medical issues like to use different delivery systems and even different cannabis strains depending on the specific effects and mood they want to feel.

There were no special cannabis cultivation or extraction methods in those days and people just smoked whatever they could get their hands on at any given time. Back then, strains with specific cannabinoid concentrations, mood specific strains, and lab tested buds were a distant dream.

Snoop Dogg-backed firm enters race for precise marijuana dosing

Legal weed is looking for its shot glass.

Investors are pouring money into the race to develop devices that promise precise marijuana dosing.

Unlike alcohol or Tylenol, there’s never been a standard dosage for THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in pot.

The latest company to join the rush is Indose, a startup that sells disposable vape pens that use a pair of sensors to measure the dose of THC delivered with each draw, down to the milligram. The company recently closed a US$3.5 million funding round led by Casa Verde Capital, the cannabis private equity firm that counts rapper Snoop Dogg as a partner.
