If you’re a cannabis consumer that’s tired of sifting through the singles on dating websites only to be ultimately disappointed with the results, then the latest thing in dating apps might just be the answer.
The dating app in question is called “High There”, and its CEO and co-founder Todd Mitchem claims that the application is a novel starting point for the pot-smoking populace to connect on a social basis with other likeminded persons.
And folks aren’t limited to using the app to find that special someone to fall in love with and live hash-ily ever after. Mitchem says the application was also designed so patients could connect with other medical marijuana consumers, which he maintains was something the marijuana-consuming masses were in search of.
“People have been looking for a conduit both for dating and also medicinal reasons, just to connect with each other,” Mitchem avowed.
It looks as if Mitchem may have found his niche in the cannabis industry with his new creation. According to him, the High There app has “32,000 to 33,000 downloads” so far.
There are very few dating services available on today’s market that offer customers the opportunity to seek out someone based specifically on their love for (or serious lack thereof) cannabis, which is what led Mitchem to develop the High There app. He too was at a loss when searching for that particular person that enjoys puffing the sticky stuff just as much as he does.
I was lucky enough to find someone that likes to partake just as often as I do, which can be a deal breaker for some folks when it comes to long-term relationships.
Now, with Mitchem’s High There app, its users can get straight to the point and get together to smoke a joint, if they choose to.
“Rather than dating for simple attributes, like what do you do? What do you look like? How tall are you? This is about a shared experience around cannabis,” says Mitchem.
Once downloaded, getting started with the High There app is quite straightforward. Users simply create a concise, cannabis-infused bio in a clever word count of 420 characters or fewer. The app asks you to describe your energy level and to list some of your favorite activities (yes, you can list toking the bong as a favorite activity), and the application takes over from there.
As of right now, use of the High There app is restricted to the 23 states that legally permit the consumption of marijuana for medical dedications. But as the laws across the nation begin to change in favor of legalizing maryjane, so will the boundaries in which the app can be utilized.
“What we’ve done is geo-fenced in those states. So for example: if you fly to Texas, the app doesn’t function,” Mitchem explained.
The High There app is on the house and obtainable for both iOS and Android, so getchoself a copy, tokers.
