Happy weekend everybody! We’ve got info on our name change, this week’s giveaway, app updates, the new shop and more below!
@hightherefun is now @hightheresocial!
We decided it was time for a refresh! We still want to be the fun, giveaway-filled account you’ve come to know but our goal is so much more than that, and we felt it was time our name reflected it.
Our community is fun, but fun is only a part of it. We want to be your trusted source for news, health information, and support in the sometimes topsy-turvy world of cannabis enthusiasm and medication.
Without the High There community, there is no High There. And we want to make sure every aspect of our outreach reflects that. So not just fun – Truly social. A part of and a boost to our community. Because all of you out there? Are what we’re all about. One ❤️.
Ok, ok, enough with the feels – Less sap, more stuff everybody cares about. Like this week’s giveaway and our brand new “Ask The Pro” series!
Giveaway & Ask The Professional: Dr. Bryan Doner
Medical or recreational, legalized or no, when it comes to the world of cannabinoids there can be a lot of questions.
Have you ever wanted to know something about cannabis but haven’t had the chance to ask a professional? In today’s community feature we’re introducing the first of our “Ask The Pro” series, with our very own chief medical advisor, Dr. Bryan Doner!
Dr. Doner has a wealth of healthcare-related experience; as co-founder of Compassionate Certification Centers, Dr. Doner and his team currently treats 60,000+ medical marijuana patients across the state of Pennsylvania, and has a large breadth of knowledge when it comes to the topics of both cannabis use as medicinal treatment and cannabis legality.
If you have a question you’d like to ask Dr. Doner and the High There staff, simply either make a new post or comment in the High There app* with your question and the hashtag #askdrdoner and your post may be featured in one of our upcoming articles!
Note: This contest will run a full two weeks, to accommodate as many questions as possible; we want to make sure everyone has the chance to see their answers in a future update! Here’s the official rundown:
- Log into the High There app and visit the official @hightheresocial account.
- Make a new post or comment with the hashtag #askdrdoner and your question for the High There team.
- And that’s it! Winners to be announced in early October & will be contacted by email after the contest is over. Questions will be answered in an article posted to the site as soon as possible.
Contest begins: Friday, September 17th, 2021 at 4:20pm PST
Contest ends: Thursday, September 30th, 2021 at 4:19pm PST
But we’re not just offering the gift of knowledge. For three lucky app users participating, you’ll each receive the prize of a $25 Mystery Box from World of Bongs!
Prize winners will need to respond to an email from the High There staff, and potentially provide their mailing address & other personal information upon request.
* We realize there are those who may wish to ask questions anonymously and respect their right to privacy. If so, please feel free to submit your question to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org – If your email question is selected to be answered, no identifying information will be included. Due to the likelihood of fraud we cannot allow email questions to count as entries for the contest; instead, make a post or comment in-app that says “#askdrdoner email question” and you will be entered with a chance to win.
Contest is open to residents of Canada and the United States of America, excepting Quebec and Arizona. Must be 21 or older to participate. Only one entry valid per account. Winners chosen at random among all valid entries. Full rules are included on this page.
High There App Updates
We’ve had a lot of great feedback since our last major update (search) and have been working hard behind the scenes to make improvements based on our community’s suggestions.
A new version is slated to begin internal testing very soon with some minor improvements, and one major feature: A new main feed, that can either be set to show either the current “little bit of everything” mix or only your own friends!
Our team is also putting significant amounts of resources and effort into combating spammers and solicitors from trolling the app. We’ve been testing some new ways to help keep our platform as spam-free as possible, and encourage everyone to please use the report function in-app whenever they see a post that doesn’t reflect our community – Every report is monitored, read, and acted upon if deemed necessary, and it’s largely due to the diligence of our user base and community that we’re able to root out bad actors. So thank you all for helping us make High There the best cannabis (and otherwise!) social media app around – We mean it when we say we couldn’t do it without your help!
Our newest version is slated to begin internal testing within the next few days, and we should hopefully have information on a firm public launch date very soon; stay tuned here for more news in next week’s post!
High There’s New Ambassador Program!
We announced the official launch of the High There Ambassador Program last week and have already had some great conversations with community members about joining our expanding team! If you’re an influencer who wants to be a part of our growing network of ambassadors, make sure to check out the link above!
And if you’re looking for that new drip don’t forget, with our Ambassador Program also comes the brand new High There shop! Ever wanted to rock a High There hoodie? How about a Wakey Bakey t-shirt? Our shop uses high-quality fabrics and offers premium clothing products that are comfortable, built to last, and look pretty good if we do say so ourselves. Click the pics below for a few samples, and make sure to stop by the shop to see everything we have on display.
Last Week’s Winners: “#freeformfriday”
With so much going on this week, last week we decided to take it a bit easy and chill out with our users for a bit in an extended #freeformfriday contest. Rules were simple: Post a picture or video with whatever it is you wanted to share and that’s it; contest entered. Easy, chill; some good Friday-style vibes all around.
We had a lot of awesome entries but there can be only one winner. As determined by the will of the dice, our Grand Prize Winner for the first #freeformfriday is:
Grand Prize Winner:
Congrats JamieBudiva! You’ve won a free SugarlyBox from the fine folks at GoodyBox, containing three unique CBD-infused sweets!
Three other contestants have each received our special Judge’s Prize, with those entries being:
Seriously, watch the video and tell us this doesn’t deserve some love
Who put so much effort into entering we had to give her love of family a prize
Because this just looks chill as all get out
We loved each and every entry we received but the three above each hit our judges right in the Friday vibes. And for that, the three of you will each receive a gift card to GoodyBox worth $10! Our prize team should be in touch early next week for all of our winner’s information – We hope you enjoy!
Thank you again to all of our entrants; we hope you’ll all enter this week’s giveaway as well, and look forward to seeing you in the app! As always, make sure to follow the official @hightheresocial account for more weekly contests, news round-ups, fun links, and community highlights! We’ll see you in the app!
