Marijuana is becoming much more mainstream, and app developers have been ready. Lots of mobile apps already exist for locating weed, learning how to grow, and to connect you with other cannabis enthusiasts. The following is a list of 15 of the best weed-related apps on the market.
Basically: Google Maps for dispensaries
Weedmaps points out the nearest dispensaries within your area, along with reviews and lists of strains and products currently available at each location. You can also search by brand, product, and more. Weedmaps additionally offers content like full-length documentaries, how-to’s, and more on their Weedmaps TV channel.
Basically: The Wikipedia of Weed
Leafly maintains a database of known weed strains available in US dispensaries, as well as keeping you up-to-date on the latest cannabis news. It provides information on each strain, like the parent strains, reviews from other users, and offers a profile of the effects that can be expected from consuming the strain.
If you’re looking for something that will specifically relax you or energize you, Leafly can be helpful in finding the perfect strain for you. Patients, recreational users, and growers can leave reviews of strains, dispensaries, and more.
If you’re an MMJ patient, this app can tell you which strains have worked for other people who share your ailment or condition.
Basically: A munchies delivery service
Seamless (aka GrubHub) allows hungry stoners to order any snack, meal, or grocery item they want, and have it delivered to their door within minutes. Delivery options are dependent on your location and whether restaurants/stores in your area have joined Seamless, but users can expect continued expansion as this app keeps growing.
4. High There!
Basically: Tinder for stoners
Aptly billed within the cannabis community as the Tinder for weed enthusiasts, High There! is a location-based dating app. Users are matched by location and a set of variables based around likes and dislikes, and are offered the ability to swipe left and right to select/reject.
Users can indicate whether they’re more high or low-energy based on preference of sativa or indica (or both, which is classified as “medium-energy”). People who prefer vaping would be matched with other vapers, or you could be matched with others who prefer eating edibles.
Also included are a set of lifestyle/activity options like Outdoors, Culture, and Food, to add an additional layer of common interest to match-ups.
If you’ve been finding that your interest in weed seems to be a deal-breaker on regular dating apps, High There! may be just what you need.
Basically: Stoner social network
Duby offers a “safe space” to share your cannabis-related activities and connect with fellow enthusiasts. This network allows you to post your photos and videos anonymously and connects you with other users via private messages.

Releaf is especially helpful for those who want to track which strains do what to them, and how each method affects them differently.
10. Weed Scale 4.20
Basically: Turns your phone into a weed scale
Weed Scale 4.20 was developed to ensure you’re not getting cheated by your supplier, according to its creators. A slight catch is that it works best for a range of 1-5g, so if you’re weighing all your stock, it may take a little time and involve some extra math.
Android: APK Only
Basically: A stoner sobriety test
My Canary was designed and is promoted by NORML, a cannabis activist group. This app will assist in assessing your level of inebriation, and let you know whether you are fit to drive.
My Canary takes you through a series of sobriety tests, based on methods that have been used by law enforcement for decades. Tests like the ability to balance on one foot, memorize numbers, and estimate time spans. The results will give you a red, yellow, or green light, meaning stoned, semi-sober, or sober.
This app can’t prevent you from driving, but it can help you make the right decision.

GrowBuddy’s phone app is a companion app to more powerful desktop and tablet software. This app allows you to record data on the feedings for a single plant or multiple crops.
This app tracks and monitors the progress of your plants and provides a strain-by-strain guide on how to care for your plant, like nutrients, light, and water needed. You’re also able to connect with other growers who may have similar growing experiences. Even better: GrowBuddy is anonymous and encrypted.
