Cloudponics Announces New Reselling Program for the U.S. Northeastern Region

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudponics, maker of the intelligent, fully-automated IoT hydroponic plant grow system for homes called GroBox, today announced a new reseller program for selling the Cloudponics GroBox and GroPro to the U.S. Northeastern region. This new program, which currently has a number of hydroponic stores in the region and with plans to sign up 250+ stores, will allow local retailers to sell the Cloudponics GroPro and the GroBox, the fully autonomous and self-sustaining hydroponics grow system for growing medicinal plants and vegetables indoors that can be easily controlled from a smartphone.

This new Cloudponics program for the Northeastern region will allow local hydroponic stores, dispensaries and smoke shops to be part of the Cloudponics reseller network. Cloudponics will also handle local marketing, partnership development, distribution and on the ground customer support in the region.

Additionally, Cloudponics is developing partnerships with medicinal consultants in the Northeast region to help promote home growing to those members of society who use medicinal cannabis for pain and multiple ailments, giving them the ability to grow their medicine at home and avoid the complications of growing quality medicine and the hassle of traveling to a dispensary. Additionally, Cloudponics is laying the groundwork for service-disabled veterans as well as organizations such as Veterans Cannabis Group and Grow For Vets. A percentage of sales will go toward advocation as well as the aim to eventually donate GroBoxes to veterans who cannot afford their own units.

Currently in the Northeastern region, Maine and Massachusetts are the only two states where marijuana is legalized for recreational use. Other East coast states where medical marijuana is broadly legalized include New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, as well as the District of Columbia.

“We’re eager to spread the Cloudponics’ reach across the country, but also awareness of the grow-your-own lifestyle,” said Nico Ruiz, CPO and CoFounder of Cloudponics. “Our goal is to allow users to enjoy the beauty of growing their plants and giving them the power of controlling their own supply. No longer will folks need to go to a dispensary or experience the negative effects of commercial cannabis, such as presence of pesticides or mold.”

“Automated grow management, like we can offer with the Cloudponics App and GroBox removes the risk and intimidation and allows even the brownest of thumbs to grow the greenest of plants,” said Dave Mech, owner of Springfield, MA store, Potco. “This is the future of growing superior quality medicine at home.”

The GroBox intelligently monitors and manages multiple variables such as air temperature, nutrients, humidity, water flow, airflow, light schedule and pH balance in order to create and sustain the optimal conditions for consistent, predictable, and repeatable yields. The GroBox can be paired with the Cloudponics app for 24/7/365 oversight and can run for up to 3 weeks before a water refill. Here’s a link to a Livestream of the GroBox fully automated grow system.

Whether for legal recreational or medicinal use, the GroBox is simple yet flexible enough that anyone from a beginner to an experienced grower can cultivate their own high-yielding, high quality cannabis plants in about three months' time from the convenience, comfort and safety of their home. By becoming the first to market with GroBox units ready for purchase, Cloudponics solidifies its leadership position in the indoor/home gardening sector.

The GroBox can be used to grow a variety of plants and produce, however the system's current setup has been designed specifically for the unique needs of cannabis growers, with special features designed to ensure the security and discretion of your plants, such as an odor filter, app controlled door lock and lights specifically designed for growing cannabis.

According to various reports, the legal marijuana industry will be worth $13.4 billion, $20.7 billion or possibly $30 billion by 2020. Additionally, the Marijuana Business Daily projected that retail sales of medical and recreational cannabis in the United States are expected to hit $5 billion to $6 billion this year and surge to as high as $17 billion by 2021.
