“There’s an app for that” has become a popular slogan over the past few years, explaining the role of the iPhone app store as highlighted in a 2009 Apple commercial. However, while that advertisement in particular was referencing apps for counting calories and locating your parking spot, it would have probably been out of place to include an app for finding the perfect marijuana strain back then. However, that was 2009, well before the steady growth of legalization throughout the U.S. Today, we are blessed to have a large amount of applications available for discovering new strands, locating dispensaries, and even making delicious edibles. Let’s take a look at the apps that make tech an essential part of THC.
Think of Leafly as the “Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” for cannabis. In addition to helping you find and rate dispensaries, Leafly also provides you with exclusive videos to improve marijuana-related knowledge as well as entertain. Leafly is also the perfect place to find your ideal strain, as the app helps guide you to find any combination of sativa, indica, and hybrid strains to help you do everything from overcome anxiety to boost productivity.
Sure, you could use Google Maps or Mapquest to find the closest dispensary. However, do either of those apps offer dispensary menus, brand suggestions, and a guide to nearby deals? Didn’t think so. Letting you find your new favorite shops while also searching out the best deals for strains and edibles, WeedMaps will guide the way to the ideal smoking session.
Marijuana Cooking Calculator
When you’re trying to get your cannabis fix, you may prefer the delicious brownie to traditional smoking methods. With the Marijuana Cooking Calculator app, you can easily calculate THC percentage, flower amount, and how many servings you’d like to make. Until they finally have a Food Network show to help you learn how to make the perfect edible, this app from CannaBuild will have to suffice.
Swiping around and looking for people near you is generally associated with dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble. However, if you’re looking to find a smoking buddy rather than your future spouse, Social High is the perfect app for you. Acting as a much more weed-friendly social network than Facebook or Instagram, Social High allows you to connect with like-minded cannabis connoisseurs.
The ideal application for home growers, WeGrow will help you efficiently maintain your personal plants. Not only does the app help you manage the often complex growing process, it also gives helpful tips on grow recipes and allows you to keep track of important factors such as watering and lighting. Additionally, first-time growers will have the added benefit of learning from ELLE, the app’s helpful chatbot.
