Hi-Tech

Technology has taken center stage at a trade show in Silicon Valley. But the industry of focus is not software, gadgets or the cloud. It's weed.

Technology in the cannabis industry is fast and furious. The innovation is incredible.

A Vancouver startup company is betting it can provide a high-tech solution to help legal medical cannabis growers deal with plant waste, as their production expands to accommodate the recreational market.

When Eaze, a cannabis delivery app, first began its battle in 2014 to win over the hearts and minds of California lawmakers, executives at the young startup didn't know they sat on a powerful secret weapon: grandma and grandpa.

Under the city’s program, the grow gets 100% of its power from renewable sources, a trend that could see a big upward swing in other markets depending on how much electrical demand indoor grows begin to account for in coming years.

Silicon Valley is no stranger to cannabis culture, so it's no surprise that tech companies are driving innovation in the pot world. And guess what? They've got some seriously impressive products.
