* Best blogs written by the Hound Labs team in 2021, not to be confused with the best blogs written by bloggers who are candidates for blog industry awards such as the Bloggies or the BOBs (Best of Blogs) – the equivalent to an Oscar® or Grammy® for blog writers.
Cannabis breathalyzers and breath testing technology at its core have varying capabilities and features – it is critical to understand what’s important when deciding which to select for your organization.
You ask, and we will try to answer. This is the first in a series of blogs that answer the most frequently asked questions of the Hound Labs team.
Since founding Hound Labs, Inc. in 2014, I worked with our team to prioritize “R&D” (research and development). A critical part of the research necessary to build a cannabis breathalyzer requires more than just lab simulations. To truly understand the effectiveness of our technology, we must continually test people – not lab rats.
The unique characteristics of breath have fascinated the medical and scientific communities for years but building a deep understanding of breath requires advanced ultra-sensitive technology.
Hound Labs needed to shrink a piece of lab equipment about the size of a pony into a carrying case, maintain ultra-sensitivity, and ensure the solution was easy to use.
A marijuana breathalyzer is 1 billion times more sensitive than an alcohol breathalyzer.
