Additionally, High There users can add a 420-character “My Story” to elaborate on who they are and the type of relationship they are looking for.“It’s a chance to tell why you’re on the app,” Mitchem said.Dating isn’t easy and for marijuana enthusiasts still dealing with black market stigma, it can be even harder.
The site currently has 50,000 users in all 50 states and 89 countries.
“…It gives users more flexibility, they are able to talk about their love of cannabis or their love of food.
It has the swiping capability but adds a whole new level.” Launched on April 20, 2014, the website My420Mate calls itself “the Cupids of Cannabis” and tells its users to “plant your seed and watch your love grow.” The site introduced a mobile app on the same date of this year, allowing users in any location to create a profile and browse others with similar interests.
High There co-founder and chief executive Todd Mitchem said he had the idea for the app after he was criticized by a Tinder date for his marijuana use.
“There is a need in the cannabis industry for a number of things,” Mitchem said.
As public attitudes toward online dating and legalized cannabis shift, a new opportunity to openly connect members of the marijuana industry has arisen.High There is a mobile dating app for people involved in the cannabis industry, or anyone interested in meeting people from the marijuana community.The app launched in February and has since been downloaded by 150,000 users and is available free on Apple and Android devices worldwide.The app’s slogan, “You have more friends than you think,” reflects its mission to create an inclusive and open environment for marijuana enthusiasts.“One of those is social connectivity.” The app functions similarly to Tinder, allowing users to swipe through profiles to find matches.Mitchem said the app sees about 25,000 to 35,000 matches, or High There connections, a day.
