The app was conceived when CEO and Founder, Steve Einzig and his close college friend Steven Stern got together in New York City just last year. Stern was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in November of 2014, but by using a concentrated regiment of THC and CBD in concert with other cancer prescriptions, Stern is now almost four years into stage 4, one of the few people on his medication regimen to survive this long, and according to the latest reports, his condition is stable.
Stern’s story has already driven people battling cancer to the app and they love all the support and information they have found. “We have one ‘user’ named Alicia (@aliciakeepsmiling) who is suffering from chronic pancreatitis.” says Jen Jendrzejczyk, originally a PotSmoking.com intern now working for the app out of Los Angeles. “I talk to Alicia multiple times a day. She’s always on the app keeping up with what’s going on. She says it’s become a huge part of her emotional support while battling her illness.”
Recreational and medical marijuana users alike are sharing information, experiences and levity throughout the world. With an insta-like interface and no algorithm to hide posts – every post is seen by everyone on the app’s 420 Worldwide page.
