She came up in the non-cannabis matchmaking world and built a solid reputation when it came to helping people find meaningful connections and establish strong, lasting relationships.
She saw a gap in the matchmaking market — nobody was catering to cannabis consumers.“There’s so much stigma and judgment when it comes to cannabis, especially when it comes to dating,” she said.
The reviews are less than stellar — most reviewers cite a limited user base and outdated or ineffective technology.
Every election cycle proves that attitudes about marijuana are rapidly shifting across the country. To answer these questions we asked a few millennials whether or not they’d want to use a weed dating app to meet a fellow stoner - or if they’d more likely stick to Tinder and try their luck. Alice, 30, lawyer: I am not currently using any, but I have used Bumble, Tinder, and Hinge. And there’s that exclusive one for like celebrities.
I have only casually dated using dating apps, I have not had a serious relationship with anyone that I've met using an app. And every time Tinder asks me to rate this app, I give it one star. Alan, 34, writer-comedian: I use Tinder, Grinder, OKCupid.
What all of the dating apps have in common, regardless if they’re about weed or not, they’re all about the person on the other end. Crissy: I think I wouldn’t ever choose it over all the others. But I do think I would try it under the guise, “Oh, I’m trying this ironically.” Because I did do that at first with Tinder and Bumble. I feel like that’s what I would end up doing if I downloaded one of those weed dating apps. I had a friend who used to vape while driving and vape at restaurants. Like before a date we’re all so concerned about like how we look, and how we come off, at least, I am. So, if anything, I’m not doing the things I would consider a fault, or a weakness, or a habitual thing. But I don't care whether they smoke themselves as long as they don't care that I do.
So I don’t think I would ever be able to find anything serious on it. That was definitely a front for me to go out with my friends, and then go home by myself and seriously look for someone to date. Alice: I wouldn't be able to date someone who disapproved of smoking.
If you’re looking for love and you like to get high, a weed dating app maybe the way to go. He made me a drawing and said we were meant to be together. I used to be like I’m not good at smoking weed, I get paranoid, whatever. One time we were smoking together and we didn’t know each other that well.
But that really depends on you and how important is to you that your partner is down to vape and chill. (laughs) I honestly think the app I’ve used the most as a dating app is Twitter. Have you ever heard of weed-specific dating apps like Stoner Singles, High There, 420 Mates, or 420Singles? I think I was really drunk and he was doing coke and I didn’t realize that. He’d done so much coke that when we made out, I pulled back and I was like, “What’s up with your mouth? Let me be clear — I’m not what most people would consider a pothead.I’m a professional with a successful career and adult responsibilities.But the ratio of swipes-to-meaningful connections is absurdly low.Cannabis-specific dating apps out there for the curious weed-lovers-looking-for-love exist. Most of the people I have dated long term knew I smoked before we started dating. I feel like on your first date you’re like, “Oh, do you smoke? I do feel like there are people who have stoner personalities but I think that’s fading out a little bit more. And I was like, uh, I really don’t want this arrest to go down like this. I value a lot of aspects of my personality more, and I identify as a lot of things before I identify as a pot smoker. If they treat it like I treat alcohol then I’m not too turned off by it. As long as the smoker is a respectful smoker, like if you’re with someone who needs to smoke in my car, I know from experience that it’s annoying and gross.
