Cannabis companies is a new interesting topic for conversations in many business circles. First of all, this is related to the latest hot discussions about legalization of medical cannabis in many countries. But also, it has speeded up by the global coronavirus pandemics, which unrevealed the mental health problems and CBD products as possible cure. However, to understand the situation, we need to go back to basics of cannabis and its use. Then it will be easier to identify the key players of cannabis industry.

Types of Cannabis

First of all, we must repeat the foundation about the types of cannabis. In fact, it can be medical or recreational. Based on the type of cannabis in production, the company can get classification status among other cannabis related businesses.

Medical Cannabis

The term ‘medical cannabis’ is quite general. It is used to reference cannabis-based products that are prescribed by medical practitioners. The main purpose of these products is to relieve or help with the management of medical conditions. Also, these medical cannabis products may come in many forms like oils, tinctures, edibles or capsules.

Non-Medical or Recreational Cannabis

The most probable adverse effects include a dependence syndrome, increased risk of motor vehicle crashes, impaired respiratory function, cardiovascular disease, and adverse effects of regular use on adolescent psychosocial development and mental health.

Hence, before you’ll start the cannabis research in depth, you must know the specifics of each measurement.

Leaf Area Measurement of Cannabis Leaves

Now it is time for the biggest truth. We still don’t have a photo of cannabis leaf area measurement in our public domain. This is a pure shame. However, we have strong reasoning for this. In the UK, cannabis isn’t a freely-grown plant. In other words, if someone will grow even one plant of cannabis, it’s possible to get a fine or even imprisoning.

As of now, we cannot grow cannabis in our Petiole lab. Hence, media materials of cannabis leaf area measurement, is not available yet

However, we do not worry too much about this lack of media materials. Surely, with these photos, our social media channels will bloom :). However, even without them, we know that Petiole Pro is widely used by breeders in cannabis industry. How it could be useful? This is interesting question.

Firstly, it can help to track the plant growth dynamics. Hence, if you are a cannabis breeder and want to get the most accurate data about the size of the leaves as well as chlorophyll level, then you can have a digital helper. Our mobile application has already proved it’s efficiency and accuracy for other plants with complicated structure of leaves:
