Cultivation of medical cannabis on the internet
The spread of Covid-19 in the past years has significantly changed the agricultural industry worldwide. The internet has become the new mechanism and tool for people to develop the agricultural sector, promoting the switch from a traditional farm to a modern one. Hence, each country’s government should encourage modern agriculture by using the internet or Internet Agriculture. The internet and financial support have proven the critical aspects of building modern agriculture. Internet Agriculture can be called the online-growing collaboration. This model includes three aspects: the internet, agriculture, and finance. The model could be used to grow any plants, but growing cannabis for medical purposes is the most popular and hottest topic. So, how does Internet Agriculture work for the medical cannabis industry?
Nowadays, cannabis has been legalised in Thailand and many other countries. People can buy cannabis and the equipment to grow it online. However, the laws are different in each country, and sometimes people still need permission to grow it if they are not specialists. Also, a license from a local government is required if the cannabis is sold. This poses a massive headache for those who wish to grow medical marijuana. The long-standing problem is that growing, processing, and selling cannabis are always complicated and unclear. Moreover, the cannabis cultivation cycle is long, cumbersome, and a considerable investment.
Customers who grow and buy marijuana for medical purposes via an online channel make up most of the industry. The market is backed by leading organisations in this booming industry which are local groups and main pillars of the industry, certified and supported by the government. The service and quality of growing cannabis online with them are comparable to the big offline brand like the HARVEST in the US.
Cloud-based cultivation of cannabis opens the whole industry of using it for medical purposes. It generates integrated development for the industry from the primary, secondary, and tertiary stages, which complements the new policy and the development of the internet and national agriculture.
