The cannabis and sexual wellness company BYND Cannasoft Enterprises Inc. (CSE: BCAN) may soon patent a one-of-a-kind sex toy that will infuse intimacy with its CBD and artificial intelligence capabilities and provide a more pleasurable experience by learning what its user likes.
The Vancouver-based cannabis and sex tech company announced on Tuesday that its subsidiary Zigi Carmel Initiatives & Investments LTD. filed a U.S. provisional patent application for a “male treatment device” that uses AI and machine learning to customize stimulation based on user preferences and physiology.
The company had previously announced filing a provisional patent for the EZ-G a female sex wellness device and received a positive opinion this month from the Patent Cooperation Treaty on the technology.
The new male-focused device differs from the EZ-G by utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to control the operational parameters of the device based on the physiological parameters of the user, explained a BYND Cannasoft spokesperson to Mugglehead in an email.
The patent application covers AI that stores user preference data and uses that data to learn general preferences and current operation preferences.
“The AI component will collect data on the response to various operating parameters and adjust the user preference data accordingly to provide learning capabilities and fine-tune its operation as it gets to know its user,” the spokesperson added.
“It basically remembers what the user likes and does not like.”
The device would gather data from sensors to create custom stimulation programs for each user, uploading information to the cloud to remember preferences and provide a personalized experience.

“As the multi-billion-dollar sexual wellness and sex tech market continues to grow, the industry is undergoing tremendous changes in consumer preferences as devices are increasingly connected online and enabled with interactive content,” BYND Cannasoft CEO Yftah Ben Yaackov said.
“In this market, A.I., machine learning, and haptic technology have the potential to personalize the operational parameters of sexual wellness devices based on the physiological parameters of the user.”
Market researchers project the sexual wellness industry will grow to $115.92 billion by 2030, and the sextech market to hit $52.7 billion by 2026.
