Over the past few decades the negative stigma of cannabis has forced many enthusiasts to hide their love of the plant from friends, family, coworkers, and others. MassRoots was born to create a safe place for these enthusiasts to express themselves, meet like-minded individuals in their area, and learn more about cannabis. Since inception MassRoots has focused on community above all else, and as a result, our network has grown to over 900,000 users who collectively engage on the app more than 300,000 times every day.
The MassRoots community is home to enthusiasts, budtenders, dispensary owners, growers, cannabis critics, glass artists, and many other individuals who are connected to the plant in meaningful ways. We’ve been amazed at the level of expertise on the platform. In fact, we believe MassRoots is currently the largest, most active, and most knowledgeable community of cannabis enthusiasts on the planet. (When we polled our users we found that over 86% of the community consumes cannabis on a daily basis.)
Over the coming months, we plan to curate the knowledge of the MassRoots community to help enthusiasts learn more about cannabis and make better decisions about what they consume. Tens of thousands of cannabis products have become available for purchase in legal states. We’ve learned from our users that it has become incredibly difficult to navigate all these options. Unfortunately, there is no established system for choosing the right cannabis based on personal preferences. MassRoots is on a mission to design and build this system from the ground up, powered by our community. We aim to create an experience that modernizes and normalizes cannabis, enhancing the lives of enthusiasts across the world.
Today, we’re excited to announce taking a big step toward this goal by launching Product and Strain Reviews on our mobile apps.
Now MassRoots users can tag specific products and strains in their posts and give them a discrete rating based on their experience. MassRoots users can save their favorite products to remember what they thought of them, see what their friends are saying about these products, and explore what’s trending in their area. Many enthusiasts have already been using hashtags to share and recommend their favorite products on MassRoots, so we’ve spent time designing functionality that makes this much easier and more organized.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to each and every member of our community for all the love and support over the years. For the next twelve months, the MassRoots team will be aiming to launch something new and awesome for you on our iOS and Android apps every month. We hope you like the new features, and as always, please feel free to send us your feedback!
