PotBotics Transforms Vaporizer Experience with RYAH, the World’s First Dose-Measuring Vaporizer

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — PotBotics, a leading data aggregation and technology company in the global medical cannabis market, announces RYAH, the world’s first dose-measuring vaporizer. RYAH enables consumers to fine-tune and track their dosing regimens so that they can recreate positive results easily.

RYAH - The worlds first dose measuring vaporizer

RYAH is a portable vaporizer that precisely measures how much consumers inhale. It is accompanied by an intuitive companion app for consumers to set their dosing parameters and track what medicine works best for them. Simply insert a medical-grade oil or dry herb RYAH capsule into the device and experience consistent, predictable results. Visit the product page at for more information.

Today’s market is oversaturated with different vaporizer options; however, current products lack the sophistication to create a personalized experience. Between mislabeled “vape pens” that constantly burn at high temperatures and balloon-based systems that give consumers no reference as to how much they are inhaling, dose tracking is impossible. Creating a product that can solve these issues is the founding concept behind RYAH. With RYAH, patients can recreate positive results easily and consistently.

Consumers have picked up the micro-dosing trends, but unknowingly, have also accepted a lack of transparency for their medical regimen. RYAH is here to break that mold,” said David Goldstein, CEO of PotBotics, “We’re very pleased to bring this state-of-the-art technology to complement our existing suite of products in order to further understand and predict patient outcomes.

RYAH is in a unique position to introduce a sophisticated and user-friendly vaporizer that will focus on regulation and consistency. Collected data will facilitate global understanding of how to alleviate symptoms and conditions affecting RYAH’s patients. Rather than relying on a trial and error approach, consumers will be able to leverage their vaporizer session statistics to optimize positive, individualized results.

RYAH and RYAH capsules will be available to the North East market in 2018.

About PotBotics:

PotBotics is the leading data aggregation and technology company in the global medical cannabis market. With a robust artificial intelligence platform that aggregates and correlates HIPAA- compliant medical data, PotBotics helps doctors and patients personalize cannabis.

About the MRG Effitas Online Banking/Browser Security Award:

  • The MRG Effitas Award is the result of a quarterly comparative quality assessment which test solutions against real world conditions, such as in-the-wild financial malware and live botnets.
  • This assessment measured Webroot’s ability to protect an endpoint from a live infection, and, in the event of a system being compromised, the time taken to detect the infection and remediate the system.
  • The test concluded that SecureAnywhere® solutions protect online banking transactions and e-shopping on a computer that is infected with active financial malware.

About Webroot SecureAnywhere® protection:

  • Webroot SecureAnywhere® Business Endpoint Protection is specifically designed to help block financially targeted malware.
  • With real-time, cloud-based detection and highly accurate collective threat intelligence, it helps to protect both Windows® and Mac® devices from phishing scams, Trojans, and spyware designed to steal businesses’ financial information. 
  • The Identity Shield feature of SecureAnywhere® protection provides secure browsing, anti-phishing and credential protection to protect online sessions, even if the customer’s computer is already infected.
  • The Identity Shield effectively places a firewall around browsers and the system, protecting users from external intruders who steal information.
  • Additionally, SecureAnywhere® solutions were designed to run alongside existing security software without conflicts, providing a comprehensive, layered protection approach.

Key Quote:

Grayson Milbourne, Security Intelligence Director at Webroot
