The legal cannabis industry is booming.

When purchasing legal cannabis for the first time in late 2017, anna’s founder asked himself one simple question – “Where the heck is the self-checkout?”

We live in an increasingly automated world. The retail automation industry is projected to reach $19 billion by 2022.

Despite being born in the age of technology, the legal cannabis industry has ignored retail trends. After spending millions on square footage like its big box retail predecessors, we’re unfortunately seeing downsizing and halts on expansion plans by MSOs. The result? Long lines and less customer service. is changing how consumers shop for cannabis – bringing the retail experience into the 21st century with smart, AI-powered technology. anna’s vision is simple: Provide retailers and consumers with cutting edge technology that enables fast, compliant transactions customized to their unique and growing needs.
