There was a time not so long ago when the only things found in the hands of a stoner was a joint, a bong and, hopefully, a fat sack of weed.
Times are indeed changing, and technology has revolutionized the stoner nation. Now, nearly every pothead in the world is walking around with a nifty little tracking device known as a smartphone.
We must admit that these commercially-acceptable spy bugs are about as convenient and as much fun as a barrel of drunk monkeys, especially when it comes to sifting through all of the apps available to waste time with throughout the day.
Here is a list of 10 Pothead Apps for the Stonerphone Generation:
This is a rather impressive app, with a wealth of weed information for every member of the stonerphone generation. It comes with an extensive library of over 175 strains, as well random facts, maps to clinics and dispensaries, a dictionary on dealer etiquette and a modest cookbook with over 30 recipes for those interested in making your own marijuana edibles. It is available as a free download for both iPhone and Android.
The Grow App
This is a helpful app for amateur growers looking to cultivate medical-grade cannabis at home. The free version includes a variety of tutorials, a problem-solving wizard, a searchable weed dictionary and a grow journal. The paid version provides app users with more advanced grow techniques and tools. It is available as a free download for both iPhone and Android.
This app is a virtual pocket attorney that guides users through marijuana laws across the United States. It provides information on penalties for possession, cultivation and sale. The app also provides stoners with pertinent weed-related data that may keep them out of jail. The app is available for free download on Android.
This app provides users access to over 50,000 comprehensive reviews of dispensaries and over 500 marijuana strains, complete with their most-common effects and medical benefits. Users can browse through over 2,000 marijuana photos and utilize the map to locate dispensaries and take advantage of daily specials. It is available as a free download for both iPhone and Android.
This app is very similar to the Marijuana Handbook, but in addition to providing an extensive library full of information regarding strains and delicious marijuana recipes, the Stoner’s Handbook also comes with tutorials on how to make bottle bongs, gravity bongs and ways to keep your stash from going stale. It is available as a free download for both iPhone and Android. &hl=en
Cheech and Chong’s The Fatty
It shouldn’t surprise you that this app has less to do with obtaining valuable marijuana information and more to do with being stoned and goofing off. The Fatty allows users to superimpose pictures of themselves with Cheech and Chong, and then share the finished image to various social media sites. It also sends out 4:20 reminders to the user, as well as gives the option to have 4:20 reminders sent to the user’s friends. It is available as a free download for both iPhone and Android.
This app provides users with a series of optical illusions that are fun to look at sober, but transform into something wicked and wild after a few hits of the good stuff. It’s not going to take the place of watching the last 20 minutes of 2001: A Space Odyssey synched up with Pink Floyd’s “Echoes,” but it has the capacity to give even the most cerebral stoner something to think about. It is available as a free download for iPhone and Android.
There is no more important stoner app than one that can direct every chiefed out son of a bitch in the room to the nearest munchies shack or restaurant. Yelp allows users to search for junk food, high-quality cuisine and watering holes wherever the stoner happens to be stoned. It is available as a free download for iPhone and Android.
This app is wonderful for users looking to track down medical marijuana strains and dispensaries. Legal weed vendors and medical marijuana patients use it all across the United States, Europe and Canada. The app is available as a free download for iPhone and Android.
There is nothing worse than a drug dealer that sucks at math. This app will ensure no one gets ripped off during the conversion process. The app is available for free download on iPhone.
