It’s being touted as the”Tinder for tokers”, a dating app called High There! that caters to a specifically 4-20 friendly demographic.
“On traditional dating sites cannabis use is often considered a romantic non-starter,” said High There!’s CEO Darren Roberts.
“Much like how some singles swear off dating cigarette smokers, but compounded by the stigma of decades of prohibition.”
The platform offers tokers a positive way to make connections, whether it be a smoke buddy or a significant other.
However, High There! does take steps to prohibit illegal transactions between dealers and buyers.
Despite helping to start relationships with a shared interest in cannabis, some experts say the drug has aphrodisiac qualities.
“We all react to cannabis very differently, but when we’re sharing that together, it really does heighten your sense of arousal … and also compassion and closeness, so you can really feel that with your partner,” said Antuanette Gomez, the Toronto-based founder and CEO of Pleasure Peaks.
“I think that mind and body connection is the beautiful part that cannabis really touches.”
