Canadian firm develops 3D system to grow medical marijuana

By

A Canadian 3D printing company, 3Dponics, has devised a hydroponics system for the growing of medical marijuana and released the designs for download.

The focus on medical marijuana has come about due to the exploding market, which company founder Michael Golubev, a Canadian of Russian origin, said was something in the region of US$2.7 billion in 2014 and expected to grow to US$11 billion by 2019.

With the growing legalisation of marijuana across North America, Golubev said there would be a need for people in crowded cities to grow their own in small crowded apartments.

This was where 3DPonics came in with its three-part system — a pot, a planter and a lid — all of which could be customised depending on the size of the system needed. The three parts would snap together and the reservoir needed to be topped up with nutrient solution or water every week.

"The huge growth could explain the sudden increase in investment into weed start-ups," Golubev said in a media release.

"With the release of the hydroponics system for medical marijuana, 3Dponics hopes to attract the attention of investors looking to support a tech company that is merging innovative technologies with legal cannabis to make the drug accessible and available to those who need it."

Designs are on the company's website and Golubev said the designs for the new system would be available in the next fortnight.
