Tampa native Garyn Angel has forged a reputation in the cannabis community with his product Magical Butter, an over-the-counter botanical extractor allowing people to make cannabis edibles at home, and now he is debuting his newest invention – a mobile grow house that manages a plant’s entire lifecycle.
Inside a distribution warehouse in Tampa that serves as Magical Butter’s HQ, several black fridge-sized boxes housing everything from jalapeño peppers to eggplants line the walls.
Unlike the typical mobile grow houses Angel describes as “cabinets with lights,” his 450 negative-pressure units feature hydroponics, controlled lights and a nutrient-dosing system powered by artificial intelligence.
