Regardless of whether you plan on celebrating 4/20 with ice cream burritos or a trip to your local “dispensary”, your smartphone can provide a little extra assistance.
Connecting with like-minded people, shopping for strains or finding a local dispensary? These apps will help you get everything you need on that magical day. They aren’t all available everywhere so we’ve identified where each of these services can be had.
Check our our list below to see the apps you don’t want to leave home without.
Duby is a gamified anonymous social network that centers around sharing your weed-fueled experiences. Users share photo, video or text posts called “dubys.”
Those who receive a “duby” can choose to pass it on or “put it out” (get it?) The goal is to make your post go as viral as possible, which increases your score and allows you to share with more people.
Where you can get it: Canada, the Netherlands, Jamaica, Guam, the Virgin Islands and the 23 U.S states with medical marijuana laws.
Like Tinder but for smokers. The dating app was created by one Colorado man who was inspired by rejection — his date walked out on him after learning he was a smoker.
While other dating apps may match you with people based on your location or answers to a questionnaire, HighThere matches people based on their marijuana preferences — vaping vs. smoking, for example. It also takes into account your energy level when you’re high so sleepy couch potatoes won’t be paired with adventure-loving tokers.
Where you can get it: The app is only available in the 23 states that have some form of medical marijuana laws on the books.
