Are you a cannabis consumer looking to connect with another marijuana lover? In this uber-connected electronic age, there are plenty of options—and apps—to link people who enjoy Mary Jane. And as cannabis users emerge from the shadows, single tokers will have less and less trouble meeting that special someone.
If cannabis is important to you, you’re likely interested in finding your own kind. High There!, a popular social network linking cannabis aficionados, has been dubbed “Tinder for tokers,” but it offers more than just romantic hookups. Users can choose to connect to “chat,” go out,” or “stay in” (like Netflix and chill but instead of Netflix it’s bong rips, see?) You build a profile by uploading a photo and writing 420 characters of information about yourself. Then the app allows you to swipe through potential matches, optimized by preference for consuming cannabis: smoking, vaping, edibles or “all kinds.” According to the website, High There! “unites cannabis users and enthusiasts… in a friendly, judgment-free environment”. The free app is available for iOS and Android use.
Another matchmaking site helping folks find reefer romance is My420Mate, an online platform for cannabis-loving singles that features a good-looking user interface and free smartphone app. My 420Mate members join for free; they can then add photos, chat live, and search for matches in their area. The company, whose motto is “plant your seed and watch your love grow,” bills itself as the “Cupid for cannabis lovers.”
And then there’s dating coach Molly Peckler, who through her company Highly Devoted offers advice for singles looking to meet cute with cannabis. Peckler credits cannabis with deepening and strengthening her relationship with her husband, and has dedicated herself to helping bring weed lovers together.
Facebook offers a myriad of marijuana meet-up groups, as does Plenty of Fish. Just Google “cannabis dating” or “420 singles.” Lots of other cannabis-specific dating sites pop up as well, like Passin Grass (“Meet. Smoke. Chill.”) and Date 420 Friendly. As marijuana legalization spreads across the nation, single smokers are looking to spark the connection—and a joint!
A new year brings a fresh outlook on life—it’s the perfect time to meet new people. Light up (or enjoy an edible, take a tincture—however you like to get lifted), make the leap and give cannabis-friendly social networking a shot. You never know who might crop up. Crop, get it? Yay for weed puns. Now get out there and meet someone who’ll find things as funny as you do after burning one down!
