Day 12 of 30 Days of Marijuana Startups. Oh..HighThere! and welcome back to AsaTera. Before I talk about today’s startup, I’ll admit, i’m extremely introverted and I find solitude and smoking alone. However, there are those occasions where it’s nice to have some company. Of course, I could call a few buddies and get a session going, but sometimes, smoking with and meeting someone new is always the best!
HighThere! is a Denver-based company that has been labeled as a “Tinder-style” dating app for cannabis consumers. It’s available on Android and iOS and the process to sign up is pretty straight forward. You create a profile, upload a pic, and tell the app your preference on consuming marijuana.
HighThere! is optimized to not just find stoners in your immediate area, but also find them based on similar smoking preferences!! Which I find pretty cool! For example, if someone’s preference is dabbing, HighThere! will match them with others who also love to dab.
The app is available in 23 states that currently have medical marijuana laws, and uses geo-fencing to lockout people in other states.
I spent sometime researching HighThere! and what I found interesting was their blog. The CEO, Todd Mitchem is the author of ALL their posts. A CEO this involved in a company is rare and shows that HighThere! is more than just a dating app. With post titles such as “How to raise standards in the world of Canna-business— and why it’s important” and “We are starting a revolution with High There! 2.0,” it is apparent that Todd is driving HighThere! to be more than Tinder for the marijuana community.
Can I say what many cannabis consumers are thinking!! HighThere! is an app to simply “hookup” with other stoners!! Am I right? Because sex while high, is the best sex!!! If a relationship comes out of the hookup, then that just a plus!!
