We have recently started a new section here at Huffs&Puffs aiming towards highlighting the new technology or innovative products in the Cannabis Industry. A lot of interesting innovations both in the software and hardware industry are making news recently, and today we speak about one of them, which has been making the rounds. Seedy!
Seedy is yet to be launched, but we got our hands on its demo APK after connecting with them, and here is what we think of it!
Let’s start with the first, whats Seedy all about?
Seedy is an app that aims towards the home grower cannabis community which is increasing exponentially in the past 1 year. With this increase, the demand for products such as tents, seeds, lights filters among others is also on the rise. The seedy app, connects growers so they can find the right equipment required at the right price.
This sounded like a good idea, but we wanted to see how it lived up to the usability and how it would help the everyday user find what they needed. So we put the demo seedy app to the test and here is our experience.
First how it works from the consumer end.
We logged in intending to find cannabis seeds, primarily Baba Kush. The interface of the app was pretty sleek, and the seeds category was presented bang on the home screen.
So far so good!
A few clicks brought us to the Feminized Seeds section, and here we were able to find what we were looking for.
The app already has sellers on board who are running the trials with the app, so the results which we saw were of real-time users.
We saw the seller name, pictures of the plant, information on seed quality etc were mentioned and we were quickly able to order the product.
Hence, from the buyer point of view, the app worked well and we can see how it would be useful for even novice growers like myself. I was able to chat with the seller using the app which was an awesome feature IMO. While I write this article, I received the notification from the App that my seeds are on route! Well, guess who would be having a Baba Kush party next month 🙂
Let’s move on to the seller side of things. Will it be as easy to list the product as easy it was to buy it?
We made another ID, in which I decided that If I were the seed manufacturer, how much time would it take to put the product live and running. This is an important aspect as if Seedy wants to dominate this market, the selling part has to be flawless as well.
I was able to set up my small store rather easily and upload the pictures of the product, description, price, etc. I submitted the information and the next step was store approval, which of course would have to be done manually for legal purposes. However, the posting part was very quick and checks the list.
Now that we had a good idea about the product, we spoke to the founder of Seedy Thomas Lopez.
Q1) H & P: When do you plan to put this live on the stores?
We plan to launch Seedy by Mid December 2020
Q2) H & P: We could see similar apps in the future, what makes Seedy have the edge over them?
Seedy will be the first grower marketplace app, staying in touch with innovation and true to our vision is our mission.
Q3) H & P: Do you foresee any potential hiccups in your way to being able to launch Seedy, and how do you plan to resolve them?
Developing anything worth doing comes with risk, but at this point, we only see Seedy growing. There’s always hiccups but that’s what keeps innovation alive and I strive to improve.
So that was it for Seedy, stay tuned for this section of new product launches. If you are working on something big in the cannabis industry, connect with us and let us know what you are up to.
