A marijuana vending machine called Anna is disrupting the market. The first of its kind has just debuted in Pueblo, Colorado. Anna is the first AI-powered self-checkout solution for the fast growing legalized Cannabis industry, that can hold up to 2,000 products of marijuana from infused beverages, balms, edibles, vape oils to Cannabis Flowers. Say bye to budtenders!
Anna is convenient
Matthew Frost, the founder and CEO of Anna had a lot to say in his interview with denverpost. He said “There are experienced Cannabis customers who don’t necessarily need that one-on-one interaction with a budtender. They know what they want before the walk in, they’re ready to go in and out. By doing this we’re giving more time back to the
people who do need hand holding and want that education from a live person.”
The secure medical and recreational cannabis vending machine arrived at a time when Covid-19 health guidelines curbed consumers’ from in-person shopping.
Anna’s unique features helps dispensary staff validate each transaction remotely to ensure patients are not dispensing more than the restricted legal limit a month by using their marijuana card and government issued photo ID.
Anna’s vision is simply to provide consumers and retailers with an experience that enables fast and compliant transactions.
It’s no fuss that the Legal marijuana industry is a fast growing one with an estimated market size of $73.6 Billion by 2027. Hence, “Anna” the weed vending machine is here to stay.
The further development of the weed vending machine is expected to happen in Nevada, California and Canada. We look forward to so many more innovative ideas from this Industry.
