Weed Apps: Top Cannabis Social Media App Pick for 2016

Weed Apps: Top Cannabis Social Media App Pick for 2016

June 05, 2017

Summary and opinion by John Fouts.

Todd Mitchem, well known for his various roles in the cannabis industry (CEO, author, speaker, change agent, and cannapreneur), published his top pick for ‘app to watch in 2016’.  He has experience in the social networking arena from his own endeavors, and other roles providing leadership allowing companies such as O.penVAPE, CannaSearch, Mindful, and High There! to grow into successes!  Mitchem is the founder and CEO of High There!, a social network allowing cannabis users to connect from around the globe. You might think that he would choose the app he founded, but his choice made for top app of 2016 is actually Duby. 

What was the logic behind selecting Duby? The Duby platform has stability, bridges generational gaps, and has features that are great not only for social networking, but also for business development. Any business is allowed to have a presence within the app, so the barriers preventing businesses from social networking such as what have been encountered regarding Facebook and Instagram deleting marijuana business accounts, will not be a problem. Mitchem also says he feels Duby has a better user experience for the best continued chance of success in the long term.  One thing he points out is folks using the app are required to participate – opting out of participation is not permitted.  He believes this to be a key point regarding the future of cannabis and social media.

My Opinion:  As a business person myself, I agree with much of what Todd Mitchem mentioned in the article.  He is right that companies, especially within the technology realm, need to position themselves carefully to continue as going concerns in the future.  Duby looks to be a great avenue to meet the objectives of allowing businesses and standard social media consumers to connect and relate.

Cultivate Confidence. Disrupt the Stigma of Cannabis - 420 Dating

Many mainstream coaches, therapists and matchmakers don't understand just how beneficial responsible cannabis consumption can be in life or in a relationship, and we provide a safe space without judgment. If smoking a joint or hitting a vape during a coaching session makes you feel more comfortable opening up, go for it! Our Head Coach Molly is a longtime cannabis enthusiast, and it's one of the reasons she and her husband are so compatible. We respect fellow cannabis consumers, and we understand where they're coming from.

In addition to all of its medicinal uses, we’ve experienced how cannabis gives perspective, increases focus, reduces stress and anxiety, and enhances connections with others. We want to help consumers become confident in their relationship with cannabis, because cannabis is a perfect analogy for being genuine and accepting yourself as you are. That’s the true definition of confidence.

It is 4 am, but I have not slept yet. My stomach is rumbling, but I can not eat without throwing up. Sudden electric sensations in my head, known as brain zaps, are irritating. I also have to deal with mild, but persistent headache: it won’t respond to over-the-counter painkillers. Restlessness. Nausea. Shivers. It has been five days I got off Lexapro, the most popular SSRI antidepressant in the United States.

What does it have to do with legal cannabis, one might ask. Well, Lexapro is widely used to treat anxiety disorders, be it generalized anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, or obsessive-compulsive disorder. In legal states doctors are allowed to recommend patients with anxiety to try CBD (cannabidiol, one of the dozens of cannabinoids, marijuana’s ) tinctures and high-CBD low-THC strains of marijuana.

Reading marijuana-devoted websites can be both educational and frustrating. The frustrating part begins when people who are in charge of attracting more visitors make up silly meaningless listicles, like this one that claims to provide 17 reasons to date a girl who smokes weed. Of course every girl who smokes weed will click on this. And some of them will also forward the link to their boyfriends, so it works. 

I need to say that I highly respect the High Times magazine. It is probably the most important media outlet for drug culture of the 20th century. They still do quality journalism, although they have some competition now. But can’t they do better than trying to imitate Buzzfeed?
