Lozano is trying to steer clear of stereotyping users of his new app, although he does also see a marketing opportunity to group them together under their mutual appreciation of cannabis. "Everyone uses the word stoner, but it's a lifestyle. We have teachers, chefs, and computer techs who enjoy the benefits of marijuana." Niche dating sites and apps aren’t new – many developers and companies have invested in sites that cater to a specific market – be it seniors, vegetarians, Republicans, or even cowboys/cowgirls.“I was trying to change the stereotype of the average cannabis user," Lozano told L. When people are looking for compatibility or even those who share a religious faith it’s easier to go to a specialty site than filtering people out from a large site like Tinder or Ok Cupid. It’s too soon to tell, and might be a little premature of its founders to bet on it being as popular as Tinder.To see whether they live up to the hype, I tried out three cannabis dating apps: High There, 420 Singles, and 420 Friends. There’s a section called “Joints” where you can see and interact with posts from other users, follow trending hashtags, and post your own updates and pictures.
Because of its illegal status in most states, people might want to avoid putting their profile on the site altogether.
There are 21 million Google hits for “cannabis and dating,” cannabis-friendly dating services are offered by coaches like Molly Peckler, and if you’re technologically inclined — there’s an app for that. In the age of cell phones, it makes sense that singles would want a streamlined way to find prospective partners with similar interests.
I love that High There offers the option of filtering distance, gender, and preferences. The discovery preferences are limited to three options: age, distance, and gender.
So did you know that you don´t have to spend all your time weaning out the marijuana haters from the marijuana enthusiasts in the dating world?
S., these dating sites can provide safe places for weed lovers to meet and maybe blaze up together.
A majority of people who share the 420 lifestyle are aware that several US states allow individuals with certain health problems to buy or to grow a limited amount of marijuana for their own personal use.
The new app – branding itself as a “lifestyle platform” - launched in spring, and the company is now working on its first major marketing campaign, which will include billboards in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and Sacramento.
My420Mate will also be debuting a new version in December.
Most marijuana enthusiasts would rather get to know someone over a joint, and it´s nice knowing before you get there that they are going to be a marijuana lover.
Here is a little bit about the online dating cannabis community!
Like Tinder (and most other dating apps at this point) it has the swipe left/right option when viewing profiles.
