Cannabis Apps: Are They Worth Your Time?

If you can think it up, there’s probably an app for it. We tried out a few cannabis apps and were pleasantly surprised—here’s what we found.

Tökr

Rating: 3/5 LEAVES

Tökr is a shopping app. Once you’ve created a profile, you complete simple preference settings to ensure you’ll see items of interest. It also sends notifications when your favorite products are on sale, and when dispensaries you frequent are having sales or get new product. There have been some big claims that Tökr is going to be “the Amazon of weed,” but unfortunately we have to disagree—for now. The premise of this app is pretty rad, and Tökr has a lot of potential.

Weedguide

Rating: 4/5 LEAVES

Weedguide—not to be confused with Weedmaps—is intended to be informative; the “Maps” portion of this app is exceptional. It lists dispensaries in your area, doctors, delivery options and places to find legal advice. We give this app a four leaf review only because it’s not clear how they choose their content and content providers. There are polarized views on many topics today, even within the cannabis industry—making sure false information isn’t shared simply for the sake of having information is important.

Canfinder

Rating: 4/5 LEAVES

This app is reminiscent of Instagram. The “Discover” feed is a series of photos other users post, with options to “love” a comment, repost, share, etc. The unique part about this app is the “Rankings” feature. Strains are ranked, and THC/CBD percentages are displayed; if you click the “Nearby” button, the app will let you know if there’s a dispensary near you that carries the strain you’re looking for. This app is flower-centric, which is great for those who prefer flower. Concentrate or edible lovers, this app isn’t for you.
