CBD Dispensing Robots Make Their Debut in NYC

August 14, 2019 15:00:47

Greenbox Robotics has installed its first set of artificial intelligence powered robots to dispense cannabidiol (CBD) in New York City. These first bots were installed at Come Back Daily, a CBD and wellness products retailer.

Zack Johnson, the founder of Greenbox Robotics, believes that these robots will play a major role in boosting the business of CBD companies. This is because the robots can be accessed even during hours when the business premises are closed.

Greenbox also sees their robots speeding up the sales process since many clients will be able to make their purchase using these machines instead of queuing up at tills in retail shops.

A perhaps more vital role that the AI robots could play has to do with their ability to educate consumers about the different CBD products available. Once a user walks to the integrated touchscreen of the robot, he or she can click on any product that they would like to buy or learn about.

The user is then given all the information that a manufacturer has availed about the selected product. For example, the dosage, what the CBD product can help with and third party tests to prove the accuracy of the information on the label.

Once a customer has all this information, he or she will be empowered to make an informed decision regarding the best products for his or her needs. This is because the customer can click on different products and read what information is available about those products.

The physical design of the AI robots seems to suggest that the manufacturer of the robots had Instagram and other social media platforms in mind because the robots are visually attractive, so users would be forgiven for posing and taking pictures while making a CBD purchase at any of these machines.

Greenbox Robotics hopes that businesses will welcome the robots as branding and advertising tools for their products. So far, this seems to be happening because CBD businesses are scrambling to have the branded robots installed in different public places, such as outside shopping malls and inside grocery stores.

The fully interactive robots will allow Greenbox Robotics and its clients to gather data on the buying habits of different demographics of their customers, and this information will help CBD product sellers to more intelligently stock products in areas or outlets serving the different demographics. For example, it wouldn’t make sense to avail a product to college students if that product has proved to be a hit among retirees.

Industry watchers believe that CBD industry actors like Geyser Brands Inc. (TSX.V: GYSR) and Golden Developing Solutions Inc. (OTC: DVLP) welcome the AI robots since they will help the industry to reach its target clients in different ways.
