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.
