Hashish Social Community – The Finest in 2021
It’s no secret that the cannabis industry is booming. It’s also no secret that social media companies have absolutely dominated various stock indices and markets for the past decade. Lots of companies are currently trying to become the cannabis social network that everyone in the industry flocks to, and right now those positions are still somewhat open. We decided to sign up for any of the cannabis social networks listed below and try them out for ourselves.
While one particular cannabis social network may be better than the others right now, there is still no network that dominates the industry. To help our readers differentiate them all and find out which ones can be beneficial for your business, we’ve decided to test the most popular social networks for weeds.
Number of users 1.3 million * (including MjLink.com) AppYesSimilar toFacebookYear Founded2013Websitewww.weedlife.com
There is a video on the WeedLife homepage that says it is “Facebook of Cannabis”. When registering, you have the option of registering as an individual or as a company.
There is a news feed and the general layout is intuitive and feels very familiar. They have a discussion area where you can ask and answer questions and vote on answers. There is also a WeedLife TV section where you can watch interviews, entertainment and instructional videos, and almost anything else related to cannabis.
The design and user experience leave a lot to be desired, but it’s not terrible either. Overall, WeedLife is one of the best social networking options in cannabis currently out there.

While trying to sign up it took me a while to realize that the only way to access this cannabis social network is through the app. A bit annoying, but they actually have an app, unlike some of the others on this list.
There was no way to log in as a company when downloading the app, so I had to log in as an individual instead.
Next came the registration question “Interests”, for which you had to select at least one of the following questions:
Then came a few more questions about personalization to customize your experience like music, swimming, travel, etc.
Although I clicked the Share option for my primary interest, the app seems to target the tinder of cannabis, with the option to select men, women, or both for you to swipe through.
The app was recently updated and looks and feels a lot better than before. There is now a newsfeed and discovery styles in the app that expand what it has to offer to users.

Before this article was written, Leafwire was The only cannabis social network that we were already signed up to. The design looks very clean and the website offers many functions.
Leafwire has a job board and marketplace where companies can offer discounts and specials on their cannabis-related services. They also have events you can sign up for and business-oriented training specifically for the cannabis industry.
Overall, Leafwire seemed to have a more polished product than the others on this list. It’s not without its flaws, but in general Leafwire provides a great user experience.

(although the website states it may be under development) Similar to FacebookYear Founded2014 website www.weedable.com
Weedable also gives you the option to register as either an individual or a company. Signing up is quite cumbersome and not very intuitive, although it still works.
The number of active users seems to be quite small. The Recent Posts section only shows a handful of posts from the past week.
There is also a “shop” section which appears to be one of the main purposes of the website, although I’m not entirely sure either.
In general, Weedable appears to be working, but it still needs a lot of work before people will want to use it more. Compared to WeedLife, Weedable is a lower quality version in my opinion.

(says available on Google Play but doesn’t seem to exist) Similar to ForumsYear FoundedUnknownWebsitegrowdiaries.com
GrowDiaries is a cannabis social network focused on tracking your growing experience. The website has a unique purpose with many active users. They have a ton of documented growth rates of various strains with detailed information like air temperatures, pH, humidity, distance between lamp and plant, and a lot more. There are also plenty of photos and a room to ask questions about growth.
In general, it’s an interesting website and a valuable resource for cannabis breeders. GrowDiaries is not confused about what it offers customers and users. Because of this, a very healthy user base has been built that is absolutely filled with content.
Benzinga Cannabis Network
The Benzinga Cannabis Network does not appear to be a social network in and of itself, but rather a resource guide for various cannabis companies. You will find lawyers, financial service providers, suppliers, etc.
The footer says “The Largest Cannabis Business Network,” which is not surprising given the reach of benzinga.com. There are options for listing your business, with different pricing plans offering different features. There is also a free plan.
There are several discussion threads that you can join or create yourself.
Number of users250,000 + AppYesSimilar toInstagram / TinderYear Founded2014WebsiteNone
The last one on the list is Duby. This is an app-only cannabis social network and is similar to Instagram and Tinder. Instagram because the main forms of content seem to be photos and videos, and Tinder because you swipe left and right when you vote on content. Or in the case of Duby, delete the joint or give it away.
Unfortunately, even after multiple resets, the app was unable to load photos or videos when I tried it. From the App Store reviews it can be seen that I’m not the only one having these issues. Hopefully the app will be fixed soon as Duby seems like a cool idea.
