Bowlmates, a new free social website for cannabis lovers, is lighting up the online cannabis community.
The platform, powered by Ear2Ground, connects like-minded cannabis enthusiasts known as “Bowlmates” from around the world in a community where users can share and talk openly without fear of unnecessary suppression.
“With other social media platforms censoring cannabis posts and content, it was time to build our own community that is inclusive for all cannabis enthusiasts and content without the fear of unwanted and improper censorship,” CEO Jonathan Black said in a statement.
Interested potential users can visit bowlmates.com to gain immediate access to exclusive content, livestreams, and interact with the legendary duo across a variety of online activities to be rewarded with virtual tokens.
These tokens can then be exchanged on the platform for authorized merchandise, memorabilia, plus in-person and digital events connected with Cheech and Chong.
“We have been spreading love and connecting people through our movies, albums, and live shows for decades. Creating somewhere online where we can continue that mission … it’s been a long time coming, man,” Tommy Chong said.
“It’s true! Finally, a place where we can unite on a deeper level with our Bowlmates from around the world than we ever have before,” Cheech Marin added in a Bowlmates press release.
As pioneers of cannabis counterculture, Cheech and Chong have faced their fair share of censorship throughout their careers. By partnering with Ear2Ground, they’re breaking free from the constraints of major social media platforms and delivering authentic content.
Ben Mason, CEO of Ear2Ground, shared his excitement: “It is fantastic that Cheech and Chong understand the importance of having an online destination they fully own, where users are free to discuss all things cannabis. Bowlmates are exactly what the online cannabis community has been searching for and needs.”
Danny Keith, CRO, added, “The desire for cannabis enthusiasts to interact in a social environment where they can actually converse with Cheech and Chong is paramount. Not to mention Ear2Ground’s platform is an unprecedented redesign of social media as we know it.”
