Retail & Infused Innovation Winner: Harvest Direct Enterprises

Harvest Direct Enterprises
Harvest Direct Enterprises is a cannabis biotechnology and intellectual property development company located in Everett, Washington. Harvest developed a proprietary and patent-pending manufacturing method, LACY (Lossless Activation Chamber Y), to focus exclusively on whole cannabis plant formulations that have been proven to be more beneficial medicinally and have greater efficacy at smaller doses than THC and CBD alone.

Innovation Details

LACY, the Lossless Activation Chamber, lets you capture an entire cannabis strain in a pill, inhaler or topical product. With LACY, cannabis strains retain the compounds that make them unique and able to treat specific ailments. The goal of Harvest Direct Enterprises, the producer of LACY, is to replace half the pharmaceutical drugs in medicine cabinets with safe, natural and holistic alternatives. LACY is the biggest innovation in cannabis science since the introduction of cannabis concentrates, and it is an absolute gamechanger for this industry. Each LACY system will retail for $250,000. This is the future of cannabis and medicine.
