In fact, the device’s impressive growing abilities have been translated from the knowledge of the company’s founder, retired expert cannabis grower Yaakov Hai.
The airtight, stackable containers will allow cultivators to optimize land-use and reduce the environmental footprint of their farming operations.
It can grow other things too but it’s safe to say, most people are using Seedo to grow weed.
Seedo’s biggest market is in the United States where growing and using cannabis recreationally is now legal in 11 states in the USA and in 22 states medical cannabis has been recognised as an effective treatment for numerous health conditions including PTSD, depression, chronic pain and for those undergoing cancer treatment.
Notably, in May 19, the company was accepted as a registered vendor for the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM). As such, Seedo now has access to hundreds of daily tender contracts from over 35 different UN organizations, with an annual budget of $4 Billion dollars, providing exposure to a variety of opportunities internationally.
“Designed to simulate your specific plant’s ideal natural conditions, Seedo delivers precision agriculture for brag worthy yields using minimal space.”
Airtight with built-in CO2 cartridges and A/C so there’s hardly a need to open the unit to let pests in or smells out, the interior of the Seedo can be monitored remotely via a built-in HD camera.
Although the device can technically be used to grow other things like peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, parsley, oregano and mint, we’re pretty sure that its automated post-harvest drying system is mainly designed for use with the devil’s lettuce.
Combating forgetfulness in home botany adventures: the Seedo — basically a set it and forget it hydroponics grower.
Marijuana enthusiasts are often passionate about many things, including their own hands and reflection, in addition to smoking the good stuff. But attention to detail generally isn’t one of their fortes, thusly process-oriented tasks, say at-home horticulture experimentation, can suffer at their hands.
Just a hunch though …
As part of the partnership, Seedo said Snoop Dogg will help “educate consumers on the environmental benefits and social opportunity of Seedo’s home and commercial grow technology” and contribute to a social responsibility program that will be sharing Seedo’s growing practices. The program will also provide donated Seedo products to local communities, neighborhood organizations, and Snoop’s community of influencers, the company said.
Seedo says the device can grow the cannabis plant from seed stage without human intervention over the course of 90 days, making for an independently run cannabis growing operation. The machine weighs between 120-140 pounds (54-63 kg) and measures 40 by 24.4 by 24.4 inches (101 x 62 x 62cm), with units listed at $2,400 each.
His social media presence, with 36 million followers on Instagram alone, is filled with cannabis memes and references.

Snoop Dogg is also a long-time cannabis entrepreneur. In 2015, he co-founded the media organization Merry Jane, which focuses on news about cannabis, and launched a new line of cannabis products called Leafs by Snoop offering a range of flowers, concentrates, and edibles.
“Snoop’s vast global following, industry influence and network reach will provide us an invaluable resource for Seedo as we continue to grow. The synergy between Seedo’s products and Snoop’s platforms is truly natural,” Levy added.
The Israeli company said in a statement on Tuesday that Snoop, né Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., will work with Seedo “on a variety of platforms” to “achieve optimal consumer awareness of this innovative technology.”
Seedo CEO Zohar Levy said the company was “honored to partner with an industry icon like Snoop Dogg.”
