This New App Will Tell You If Your Cannabis Plants Are Sick

Just like people and pets, marijuana plants can get sick, but it's often hard to tell since you can't give your buds a thermometer. But now aspiring cannabis growers can track the health of their plants using the new app called 'Chronic Sickness.'

"Chronic sickness is a project to create a human-level diagnosis tool for Cannabis plants," says the website for the app, which was unveiled by inventor Harry Moreno at this year's DEF CON - an annual hacking convention in Las Vegas.

To use the app, all you need to do is upload a shot of your plant to chronicsickness.com, which will generate a health score. Right now, the app can't tell you what exactly is wrong with your plant, but Moreno hopes to add that functionality in the future.

Currently, 'Chronic Sickness' is about 80 percent accurate, but as the app's dataset expands, its accuracy will increase, according to Moreno, who is calling on knowledgeable growers to help improve the app's abilities.

"If you have access to photos of sick and healthy cannabis with accurate diagnosis, please contact us," he said at DEF CON.

So for anyone having trouble with cultivating cannabis at home, 'Chronic Sickness' might just help you take your growing game to the next level.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
