There's no doubt that technology has permeated every industry in some way or another. Cannabis for example has seen lots of progress and significant innovations. Here's our pick for the best ones of this year.
There’s practically no industry in the world that hasn’t been impacted by technology, and cannabis is no stranger. Year after year, cannabis companies present innovative, technologically backed products and services that go beyond the bud itself and involve anything that has to do with the cannabis world.
With the current legalization trend that has normalized cannabis in many places, companies have doubled down on those efforts to continually bring new and fresh products into the market and into the billion-dollar industry that is now cannabis.
We know that tech is a fast-paced industry, that new products are coming every day into the market, and that it’s hard to keep up with everything.
That’s why we went ahead and prepared this selection of the best cannabis tech developments of 2022.
The Trident is a healthy alternative to chemical-riddled, butane-filled lighters. The patent-pending technology combines safe, durable, all-metal construction with intense heat to combust materials without burning your fingers, altering your product’s flavor, or stinking up the place.
Hitoki’s patent-pending Trident is a device that vaporizes your herbs and extracts using a method akin to how sunlight and a magnifying glass can make leaves catch fire. Enjoy the freshest taste of your herbs every time with the Trident.
The Trident’s multiple independent operating modes allow for a significantly wider range of gas mixes and dive plans to be used with minimal loss of performance.
Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack that can be charged with Hitoki’s high output charger, the Trident provides an amazing 280+ minutes of real use time per charge to safely assist many dives before needing a recharge.
The Trident would seem like something out of a science-fiction movie. But this bio-friendly lighter uses organic materials to create organic aromas and tastes.
As weed grinders become increasingly advanced, HØJ noticed a disconnect between grinders and weed. With some of the best materials in mind, they created a grinder that maximizes the taste and smell of your precious marijuana.
Designed with care in Denmark, the KLIP is engineered to grind your weed like no other. Using an innovative way of not relying on the material’s strength, it offers you a unique experience in grinding.
By simply slicing through your herb, the KLIP lets you maximize flavors and effects. What’ll that mean for you? Tastier, more potent highs.
The Stündenglas is a high-end gadget from the heart of the Bavarian Mountains. The gravity bong rotates 360° and has a built-in vaporizer for intense highs. This elegant bong is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and comes in your choice of three colors: champagne gold, matte black, or shiny blue/aquamarine.
The Stündenglass Gravity Bong is a high-end and sophisticated gravity bong that makes smoking an easy and enjoyable experience. It also provides a stunning, smooth hit that produces an enormous amount of smoke.
This gravity bong is not nearly as heavy as it looks. It uses a combination of forces to create a gentle and smooth draw, and the glass on glass downstem is smoothed for a completely angle-free hit.
It even comes with a 10-year warranty on the moving parts (yes, really!).

The Invinicibowl is a device that’s easy to use, that will work with any 14 mm bong, and more importantly, it will never break. This 2-inch device’s shell is entirely made of anodized aerospace-grade aluminum, practically unbreakable, scratch-proof, and perfect for indoor and outdoor use.
The insides of the Invincibowl are made of stainless steel. The wide-mouthed sleeve can hold up to one gram of weed that will burn evenly, providing maximum efficiency. The secured-screen will give you adequately filtered smoke and can work through more than 20 fully smoked bowls without clogging, four times more than any other screen available.
Plus, it is super easy to remove and replace when needed. The handle screws itself to the screen to ensure sturdiness and is covered with a silicone Grip Guard that absorbs heat and will remain cool for the user to hold.
We often turn towards other countries when it comes to tech, and the STORZ & BICKEL Volcano Classic is the perfect example of this. With twenty years of success regarding the Volcano, it’s become a technological staple in the world of weed.
The robust and electromechanical design, high-quality materials, and pure craftsmanship make this a vaporizer that you won’t want to miss out on.
Not only is it fun to use, but it also keeps the potency and integrity of your vapor within the sealable bag for hours – so you don’t need to worry about it “going bad.”
People have praised this device for years – some have even had it for a decade, and it’s still in perfect working order.
