Adam Hutchinson Talks Technology & Cannabis Data with Kaya Cast
In a riveting episode of the Kaya Cast podcast, host Tom Mulhern navigated the compelling intersection of cannabis and technology with guest Adam Hutchinson, Founder of CannaSpyglass. Their insightful discussion shed light on how the fusion of these domains is driving the cannabis industry towards greater efficiency and innovation.
"The buzz in the cannabis industry is palpable. Despite the uncertainty and stress of an evolving landscape, there's a tangible thrill in tackling fresh challenges, scaling new heights, and achieving unprecedented feats."
Adam shared how the genesis of CannaSpyglass was rooted in his own need for precise data within his cannabis venture. Today, the platform aims to make this treasure trove of data and insights readily available to the entire industry.
"We're living in an age of accessible technology," noted Hutchinson. "Decades ago, handling data required specialized teams within big companies. Today, however, you don't need to be a data whizz to manage or access information."
At its core, CannaSpyglass uses an overarching earth model to pinpoint operator locations and identify potential zoning restrictions, taking into account factors like 9-1-1 services, daycares, churches, and more. This model also aids in determining agricultural prospects, soil quality, and availability of electricity.
"Our data serves a myriad of users - operators, vendors, investors. They may be viewing the same dataset, but their unique perspectives and objectives translate into different interpretations."
CannaSpyglass takes a holistic approach to data tracking, following the life cycle of cannabis from seed to consumption. This enables subscribers to tap into insights about product preferences, thereby enriching their understanding of consumer behavior. By consolidating this vast data pool, CannaSpyglass enables businesses to focus on their core operations instead of getting entangled in data hunting.
Adam highlighted, "Data accessibility varies across states. Who holds the data, how much of it they have, and what is kept confidential - these factors add to the complexity. One of our key selling points is that we take on the burden of data sourcing, freeing our clients to focus on decision-making and bolstering their financial performance."
