10 best weed apps for Android for most cannabis users
Marijuana is one of the most popular recreational drugs in the world. It also has scientifically-backed medicinal use as well. People all over the world use it, write songs about it, and enjoy the culture. It’s all but completely legalized in parts of the United States and is at least partially legal in a growing number of countries all around the world. There are a lot of ways to interact with the weed industry. Here are the best weed apps to get your foot in the door.
Please note, we’re not going to talk about music streaming or video streaming apps in this list. Most music streaming sites have popular stoner music and many streaming services have stoner movies. This is for people looking for something a little extra. Let’s get started.
The best weed apps for Android
CannaBook is kind of like a journal for cannabis use. You can keep track of what strains you’ve had, how they made you feel, and input facts about them like whether they’re indica or sativa. This is very helpful for people who are sensitive to some of the side effects from certain strains of marijuana. Alternatively, it’s good for folks who just want to remember what their favorite strains are. The app also contains recipes for edibles and a calculator to figure out how much THC you’re ingesting. It’s good for keeping track of your cannabis usage.
Price: Free / $5.99
Cookmate isn’t a weed app on the face of it. It’s a recipe app that lets you build your own cookbook. Edible recipes aren’t exactly difficult to find, but it’s difficult to keep track of the ones you like. This app lets you input the exact cooking method, ingredients, and you can even take pictures so you know what it’s supposed to look like. You can also share recipes to friends who also use the app and parse recipes you find online. Your recipes can be uploaded to Dropbox or exported to SD card for easy backup as well. You can also create a backup and share that backup to Google Drive if you want to go the easy route.
Google Maps is one of the better weed apps for finding legal marijuana. Google Maps can help you find dispensaries in your area. Of course, it does the other Google Maps things so you can find directions, check business hours, read reviews, and leave reviews for others. It’s especially helpful in areas where legalization happened recently and there may only be one or two dispensaries in your entire area. Google Maps is great for a lot of things and finding legal weed is one of them.
Instagram is kind of a crapshoot for weed apps. It’s actually usable for a lot of stuff. You can follow marijuana blogs, glass pipe blowers, growers, and other weed-related profiles. A friend recommended this app to find local and small business glass blowers so you can buy unique, one-of-a-kind pipes. If there’s anything we appreciate, it’s helping independent businesses.There are literally thousands of Instagram profiles for this stuff, so just hit the search bar and enjoy!
Leafly, along with Weedmaps, is one of the two biggest weed apps on Android. It’s a cannabis resource with all kinds of information. You can find dispensaries in your area, identify various weed strains, and get tons of information about things like tinctures, topicals, and edibles. It can even help you find doctors that are friendly to the idea of prescribing marijuana medicinally. Finally, it even has a news feed so you can keep up with the world of weed. The app has a bias toward California when it comes to dispensary locations and doctors, but hopefully, the developers put an effort to expand more into other areas as well. Otherwise, it’s a great app.
Pinterest is a lot like Instagram on this list. You can find all sorts of ways to use marijuana recreationally and medicinally. A lot of people use the platform to post edibles recipes, show off their glass blowing work, and share other weed-related ideas. After some searching, I was able to find some tutorials for rolling some truly epic joints and a few different methods for making cannabis butter. Plus, the ability to pin stuff makes it easy to find later.
Price: Free / $27.99 per year
TickTick is a fairly powerful to-do list app. You can use it for a variety of things. People who take marijuana medicinally can use it to remind them to medicate. Growers can use it to remind themselves when to water their plants or when to harvest. It even works great a grocery list so you can remember what you were craving when you had the munchies. Basically, anything that you need to remember can be input into this app so you can remember to do it later. The app also includes two reminders in the free version (premium version gives you unlimited), recurring tasks, notes, categories for easier organization, and cloud syncing so you don’t lose everything.
Weedmaps is another one of the bigger weed apps. It works a lot like Leafly. You can search the app for dispensaries in your area, check out various strains, and find information about edibles and other 420-friendly products. This one also offers coupons and deals on those kinds of things in case you want to value shop for your stuff. It also doubles as a headshop where you can buy various pipes, dab rigs, grinders, and other paraphernalia. You can use this and Leafly basically interchangeably or simultaneously as they both have unique features the other doesn’t.
Price: Free / $12.99+ per month
YouTube is a surprisingly excellent place for weed information. There are tons and tons of edibles recipes, including the basics like making infused butter or infused oil. It also has tutorials on how to clean your pipes, roll joints or blunts, use a dab rig, and other basics that you might need. Of course, there are some complex and advanced tutorials as well. Of course, there is plenty of entertainment value to give you a good case of the giggles. Youtube is just good like that. The ads are horrible, but if you spring for the premium subscription, you get to remove ads, enable background play, and get unfettered access to YouTube Music, so at least the subscription is worth it.
Any mobile browser

There are a lot of resources that you can find online but not in apps. Some examples include virtually every headshop, most sites that sell clones or potting dirt, stores with growing tools, and wikis with strain information. Google Play wasn’t friendly to weed apps for a long time and as recently as 2019. Thus, a lot of dispensaries are online only as are most headshops. It’s likely this will remain true until the government legalizes marijuana nationwide. Until then, you’ll spend a decent amount of time in a browser. You can use Chrome, we have Firefox linked up, it doesn’t matter which browser.
Some weed websites to check out
- 420 Science – 420 Science is an online headshop. You can buy things like grinders, pipes, bongs, and other stuff. The site has a decent selection of dab rigs as well in case you want to take your smoking to the next level. The prices feel a bit inflated, but such is online retail.
- Amazon – This is more of an honorable mention because Amazon has an app. Amazon has a ton of gardening tools that you can use if you decide to grow your own marijuana (legally, of course). It’s a good, cheap source for things like lights, hydroponic setups, and more. Amazon also sells some excellent butane lighters.
- Aurora – Aurora is another tool for growers for things like organic liquid nutrients and supplements. It’s obviously used for a variety of gardening, but many DIY marijuana growers like it to fertilize their plants. Some of the products here can get pricy, but it’s also prosumer stuff.
- BVV – BVV is another site for growing and extraction tools. It’s not quite as straightforward as most online grower tool shops. However, you can get some really neat and surprisingly effective tools here. These are pro-level tools, though, so enjoy the large price tags as well.
- DankStop – DankStop is another online headshop with plenty of pipes, bongs, vaporizers, and other stuff for sale. We don’t really recommend this one or any headshop in particular, but we encourage people to shop at multiple headshops. Since glass pieces are pretty unique, the more selection you can browse through, the better.
- Dark Heart Nursery – Dark Heart Nursery is a resource for home growers. The site sells clones and seeds for many different types of marijuana. You simply buy what you want, receive it in the mail, pot it, and grow it. There are a lot of sites like this one, but Dark Heart Nursery is definitely a good place to start.
- Fox Farm Ocean Forest – A lot of people overlook the type of soil they use when they grow marijuana. Fox Farm Ocean Forest is a site that sells potting soil that seems to work very well with marijuana plants. The site also sells liquid and dry fertilizers, slow-release fertilizers, and pest control products.
- Grasscity – Grasscity is a third online headshop. It has most of the same stuff as other headshops, including vaporizers, pipes, bongs, rolling papers, and even stuff like CBD oil for your pets. One of the neater items is a glycerin-filled pipe that you can put in the freezer to cool off the smoke before you inhale it. Nifty.
- Smoke Cartel – Smoke Cartel is the fourth headshop on our little list here. It sells the usual stuff along with accessories like butane torches, CBD and hemp oil, and neat little extras like ash catchers for your bong. They even have a $20+ per month box where you get things like rolling papers, glassware, and other accessories if you want to go that route.
