Best Cannabis Apps
Here’s our top ten of the current most useful apps out there serving the cannabis community. Let us know of your comments, opinions, user experiences and anything else on the subject in the comments!
simLeaf is something like the Tamagotchi of cannabis apps – but there’s a lot more to it! In fact, it’s a pretty comprehensive grow simulator with a whole bunch of different settings and variables that can be adjusted. You can choose which strain you want to grow, you can pick either a 600W or 1000W lamp, or adjust your pH or nutrient regime, and a whole lot more.
You’re charged with the task of looking after every single one of your plant’s needs – and if you fail to look after it properly, it’ll die just like those hundreds of poor Tamagotchis my sister neglected as a child! But if you manage to take proper care of it, you will be well-rewarded with a virtual harvest – and you’ll learn a lot along the way.
The basic app is full of features as it comes, but there are also various extras that can be purchased to make the process even more involving – such as extra strains and advanced grow techniques and equipment. It’s aimed more at the novice grower, and could be a useful way to learn what’s required before ever even putting a seed into soil.
simLeaf is available on iOS for $1.99.
MassRoots has gained a big following over recent years (it now has around one million active members), and can be very useful for creating networks of cannabis enthusiasts that span the sectors of industry, healthcare and recreation.
The app offers the ability to view cannabis-related news and content local to your area, or to look at the bigger picture with the Global view. As well as this, you can share pictures, videos, news, and anything else that’s cannabis-related with your ”Buds” (that’s MassRoots jargon for friends or contacts).
Massroots is available on iOS and Android for free – but it’s not on the Google Play Store right now, so try the Amazon App Store instead.
High There! has been billed as the Tinder of the cannabis community, and is essentially what the description implies – a dating app for stoners all over the world (although currently much more popular in the US than outside), which is location-based and allows users to swipe left and right to select or reject potential partners. The app matches users not just on location, but also on a set of variables based on users’ individual likes and dislikes.
For example, users that describe themselves as high-energy are less likely to be paired with low-energy dates (this is based on stated preference for sativa, indica – or both, which gets you classed as “medium-energy”). People that prefer vaping may be matched with other vapers in preference to smokers or lovers of munching edibles.
There’s also a set of lifestyle and activity choices including Outdoors, Culture and Food, which add an extra layer of common interest to potential pairings. Lastly, you can even choose from three options to specify what you want to do with a prospective date – Chat, Stay In or Go Out!
Leafly is one of the world’s most famous, well-rated and popular cannabis-related apps. Users can rate and reviews strains, dispensaries, edibles and many other cannabis-based products. With millions of active users, you can be almost certain that someone will have something to say about the strain you are looking for.
Patients, recreational users and growers all regularly leave ratings and reviews of strains, dispensaries and so on, often posting a lot of useful information about growing requirements, medical indications and so on. As well as reviews, Leafly also offers cannabis news, reports, event coverage and much, much more!
Leafly is available on iOS and Android for free.
This is the ultimate weed growing game. It doesn’t just stop at the pot: you must harvest your plants, breed new and unusual strains, make friends (and enemies), and eventually take control of your entire home city to be victorious.
But watch your back! Just ‘cause weed’s gone legit doesn’t mean you’re safe! Hempire is a story driven joint, so get ready to deal with corrupt cops and shady businessmen, while also helping old ladies bake brownies. For real.
