If there’s something about High There that makes our social cannabis app and web content distinctive — it’s our incredible team, community and partners.

Cannabis Savvy Contributors 

From our full-time team to many talented individuals, High There consists of thought leaders in journalism, tech, data, cultivation, business and more. Last year, we had quite a handful of unique creatives contribute to our website articles, newsletters and app. 

While I could go into meticulous detail on why each of these creatives have been an integral, irreplaceable part of our team, instead I will share some highlights from some of our top contributors.

New Year’s Intentions for Cannabis Community

In 2023, I’m setting intentions for our community at High There. It starts by making sure what you’re finding in our app, through our community, support, stories and features are exactly what you’re looking for. 

Cannabis Content Partnerships

First and foremost, my job at High There is creating exciting content that you won’t find anywhere else. I also recognize that we have cannabis consumers from all backgrounds and with varying preferences. That’s why our goal is for the High There app to have engaging articles and content from not only from High There’s perspective. In our app, you’ll find top stories from other cannabis publishers, non-profit organizations and trusted companies to bring our app consumers an all-encompassing experience. 

We’ve partnered with websites like and The Cannigma to share their articles in our app. Also, we’d like to thank our first nonprofit,

, for allowing us to share its stories and initiatives with our app audience. We look forward to bringing on additional partners in the new year!
