Starting today, Tha Doggfather will be a brand ambassador for Seedo, helping promote the company’s products and “increase awareness for agricultural technology and urban farming.”
The machine uses artificial intelligence to analyze your plant’s development, and then takes automated actions to optimize growing parameters. And it works with more than just weed!
It’s an airtight, air-conditioned, AI-enabled, automatic growing system that syncs up with an app that lets you watch the progress of your plants on your phone, without opening the device’s door at any time during the growth process.

One of the best-known rappers and celebrities in the globe, Snoop is an icon in cannabis culture. He’s even launched his own cannabis brand, Leafs by Snoop, and is a partner at one of the largest cannabis-focused investment firms in the globe: Casa Verde Capital.
For Snoop, it’s all about “promoting a healthier lifestyle” and providing his friends and communities with “products that allow for growth in unused urban spaces.
In addition, the company explains, “Snoop will contribute to a social responsibility program that will be sharing Seedo’s growing practices and providing donated Seedo products for local communities, neighborhood organizations, and his community of influencers. This initiative will start in his hometown of Long Beach, CA.”

To put it in plain English, The SeedoHome looks like a hotel minibar. But it is not.
I’ve also been a fan of Snoop Dogg for quite some time now. While there are several great rappers out there, none is as likeable and cool as Snoop is.
However, this technology comes at a cost. The device will retail for $1,499, which makes it much more expensive than simply growing your plant in the ground. However, the company says that the machine will technically pay for itself after just a few months, as the “retail value” of 4-5 ounces (one growth cycle) is around $1,200.
Leaf, a TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2015 Battlefield company, is leading the revolution with its automated “Plug N’ Plant” home growing system. Leaf’s device is a 4′ x 2′ box that will fit two plants, which will yield between 4-5 ounces of weed.
However, Leaf is much more than just a mini grow house. The system will monitor everything that your plants need to grow, including light, ventilation, nutrient levels and pH of the soil.
To do this, Leaf has incorporated a built-in HD camera, which will automatically create time lapses and even let users access a live stream of their (or their friends’) grow.
Additionally, each grow will cost about $150 in nutrient cartridges and carbon filter refills. However, co-founder and CEO Yoni Ofir said that eventually the company hopes to drop the price of the actual device and generate its primary revenue from refills (à la Keurig).
Today, the company is opening up preorders of its device. Leaf will be available to users with a medicinal card in any of the 23 states that allow medical marijuana, as well as in the four states where marijuana is currently legal.
Marijuana is a sticky subject. Twenty-three states (and D.C) have legalized some form of medical use, but possession, growth and distribution are still illegal in the majority of the United States.
The system will also react to these measurements, meaning that if it senses that your plants are low on nutrients it can dispense more, or if it needs more light it can automatically brighten the environment. Users can also control these variables manually, effectively creating their own grow “recipes.”
