How many different strain cups will there be?

It hasn't really been all that long since marijuana legalization has hit the United States, and already the technological developments have been astounding. A former Keurig executive and his friend have found a way to bring vaporizers to the forefront of technology by developing what has been called "a Keurig for marijuana" by some.

The vaporizer, which is actually named the CannaCloud, will use single-serving, disposable pot pods like you see with different types of coffee. It was designed by Massachusetts resident Michael Bourque, who had a bad experience buying weed off of a random guy who "looked like ZZ Top." Legalization entirely would eliminate the problem of buying bad weed, this version will ensure that no one will have to worry about touching the plant matter or getting bad strains at all.

There are quite a few vaporizers on the market that do exactly what CannaCloud does, but they don't need pods. However, this will make everything just a little easier for many people. This is what Bourque's business partner and former Keurig Green Mountain VP Dave Manly hopes for.

The company showed the device to a focus group and "people said, 'Oh my God, how fast can I have one of those?'" Manly told the Boston Globe. "Which is exactly what people said when they saw the Keurig."

CannaKorp plans on using a variety of strains to suit the user's desired effects, and they will use a bunch of partners to do so. There hasn't been a release date yet, but CannaKorp just raised $1.58 million money with the plan to launch the product at some point in 2017. The device will cost between $149-$179. There will also be an accompanying device called a "CannaMatic" which will help growers grind and package their products.
