Technology is changing the way we live in many ways. From having instant access to information on about any subject you could think of on a device you can carry in your pocket to medical technologies that are allowing people to hear and see for the first time ever, technology is changing lives.
In recent years, many technological ventures have started to work with things such as virtual reality, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence. This approach is changing everything from how marketing and advertising plans are being implemented and how medical professionals are learning new innovative treatment methods to how people are enjoying different types of entertainment.
These types of technologies and breakthroughs are also being applied to the cannabis industry, though many are not well known or even mainstream. That is of yet. In this article, we will look at three such companies that are operating within the cannabis space.
One is a virtual reality network, one is an augmented reality tech company, and the other is an artificial intelligence-based solution for cannabis patients, physicians, and businesses.

Through their website, they provide a way for cannabis enthusiasts to immerse themselves in the world of cannabis via virtual reality in a manner that requires no standalone VR devices. Viewers can take a tour of a dispensary, experience a cannabis cultivation vegetation room in full bloom, explore a cannabis industry event and much more.
