Dating apps that utilize GPS capabilities have changed the dating game. High There launched last February. The “social connectivity app” has attracted 150,000 users. The app is providing a way for cannabis enthusiasts to connect.
Mitchem informed MarketWatch “There is a need in the cannabis industry for a number of things- One of those is social connectivity.” Dating app can mean several different things. However, High There’s interface is comparable to Tinder.
High There co-founder Todd Mitchem was tired of girls turning him down based purely on his choice to smoke cannabis. “I hated dating on other sites and apps because as soon as the idea of my cannabis consumption came up—date over. I actually walked out of a date (after paying of course) and said to myself, that’s it. Weeding out the Ms. Wrong from Ms. Right was complex. Selfishly I hope this helps others like me,” says Mitchem in an email.
High There users are prompted to add an optional 420-character summary or description of themselves. You can also select interests, smoking methods, and more. Mitchem says the primary function is dating, but not limited to dating. It’s also capable of connecting patients with the same illnesses, friends, and support.
Mitchem told Mashable “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… A lot of people say we’re the Tinder of weed, but that’s only one facet of the whole thing. It’s so much bigger.”
High There will surely be imitated by other startup ventures. Get High There if you’re tired of non-smoker dates killing your buzz.
