The First Marijuana ATM in the Country is now available for use. Terrapin on Mississippi now has the Very first ACE, Automated Cannabis Experience, which will require no human attention. The Machine will Check ID’s, Package Weed, affix labels, and dispense weed all from the same box. Each ACE holds up to 1,152 products, depending on sizes. The 38-by-30-inch observation window allows shoppers to watch the bagging process.
“As public opinion on cannabis continues shifting in favor of decriminalization and legalization, we believe innovative solutions like ACE illustrate the increasingly mainstream nature of the cannabis space,” said Chris Woods, Terrapin’s CEO. “ACE not only improves sales but also provides unique benefits to consumers, including faster checkouts and the ability for them to engage in multiple languages. We are thrilled to be leading the charge to introduce this first-of-its-kind, genuinely game-changing way for consumers to purchase cannabis.”
According to Terrapin’s Press Release, the benefits of ACE include Minimized in-store diversity, equity and inclusion concerns: ACE can be programmed in multiple languages, improving inclusion and better serving customers in diverse markets. Improved sales approach: ACE augments budtenders and frees them to take more time to support shoppers seeking deeper consultation. Enhanced ID verification — with no human-in-the-loop: Leveraging advanced ID-scanning verification technology, ACE provides a “triple check” to ensure only those eligible to purchase cannabis are doing so, and Faster checkouts for “regulars:” The unattended ACE solution automates, simplifies and expedites the buying process for customers who don’t require the same level of engagement and expertise.
To Create these ACE’s, Terrapin teamed up with A Division of Canada’s Beaver Machine Company, a leader in the bulk vending industry for nearly 60 years. “As an established leader in the vending industry, we have the manufacturing design, automation and engineering expertise necessary to design and develop the vending machine of the future,” said Robert Schwarzli, BMC Universal Technologies’ president. “ACE is the first vending solution on the market that requires zero human assistance, truly transforming how people shop for cannabis products. While ACE is a first for the cannabis sector, we’ve brought dozens of other one-of-a-kind projects across myriad other industries to life — and are excited about the future of cannabis retail.”
