Kushmoji thinks it’s high time for cannabis emojis
You can do this even when you’re dazed and confused.
A free iPhone app, Kushmoji, offers a keyboard filled with hundreds of weed-themed emojis — some of them actual cannabis products. They range from a stoned-looking pile of poo to a fluffy bud of pot. Company co-founder Olivia Mannix says they’ve had thousands of downloads already.
The most-downloaded emoji thus far: A piece of toast with dazed-looking eyes popping out of a toaster called “the brave little Toaster.” “It’s really creative and unique,” Mannix says of why people like it so much; the emojis are hand-drawn or illustrated by designer Adam Jeffers.
Most of the apps’ users are in Colorado, though California takes a close second, says Mannix. People can use the emojis in any state, even where recreational marijuana isn’t legal.
For now, the app is more for marijuana enthusiasts to communicate with one another, but Kushmoji hopes to eventually be able to provide them with product information. You’ll be able to tap on an emoji of a certain product — Kushmoji already has 50 brands onboard like Native Roots Apothecary, Dixie Elixirs and Incredibles — and a map will pop up showing you where you can buy it, as well as pricing, ratings and reviews. But, of course, only in states where this is legal, and only if you’re 21.
