Dubbed High There, the Tinder-style app was developed by CEO Todd Mitchem after one of his dates came to a quick end when he disclosed he used pot.
Mitchem was quoted by Mashable saying:
“We wanted to build a cool piece of technology that solved the problem of where do million and millions of cannabis consumers go to meet people, connect with people and build relationships”.
According to the CEO, the app is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, where marijuana can be consumed as a recreational drug since 2012. Also, the app is only available in the 23 U.S. states where medical marijuana use is legally endorsed. The organization intends to roll the app out to Canada and other countries as legislation changes in favor of marijuana use.
Similar to other dating applications, clients set up profiles and swipe through potential mates in their area. At the same time High There is designed to match individuals based on their cannabis use preferences. Besides blending pot-smokers, the application permits clients to make differentiations. For example, users can search for particular types of marijuana smokers; from a person who smokes wax hash with a vaporizer or customary cannabis in rolled cigarettes. Also through the app users can discern between an individual who is lively or one who is languid when high. Clients might likewise network and exchange ideas and guidance about pharmaceutical costs and different other details related to marijuana consumption.
Mitchem also emphasized that the app is much bigger than just Tinder of weed, as the app is called by a lot of users. Despite the fact that states are progressively accepting the need for therapeutic weed, Mitchem believes it’s still a taboo theme in numerous communities. He notes High There can likewise go about as a sort of social media platform for smokers who are looking for proposals on neighborhood dispensaries, to give tips or simply friending other similarly- minded people.
High There is accessible free of charge on Android and is scheduled to be discharged in Apple’s App Store by the end of this week. Android users will just have to make do with regular dating apps.
