Definition - What does Leafly mean?
Leafly is an online resource for cannabis fans that provides news about the industry, product reviews and information, and details about various strains. It also describes dispensaries, and offers companion apps for Android and iOS devices.
The website does more than just provide access to reviews and information, though. It allows actual users to describe and rate different strains, as well as dispensaries in their local area. This information allows others to make informed decisions regarding their own purchases and patronage.
MaximumYield explains Leafly
Dubbed by Fast Company as “the Yelp of weed”, Leafly is one of the largest online resources dedicated to marijuana. Founded in 2010, the company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington (founded in Irvine, California). Notably, Leafly was the first cannabis company to place an ad in The New York Times.
Today, Leafly is one of the most trafficked cannabis websites in the world, with over 13 million monthly visitors.
There are four primary functions accessible through the website currently. The first is dubbed “Strain Explorer”. This feature allows you to read about the effects and effectiveness of various strains, including user reviews. The dispensary locator allows you to find legal cannabis dispensaries in or near your zip code. Then, there is a user review section that details both strains and dispensaries.
The fourth and newest functionality for the website is called Leafly TV. This section provides access to a wide range of different videos, ranging from how to set up hydroponic systems to how THC and CBD are extracted from raw plant material to how cannabis is harvested from the plant in the first place. There is also an in-depth article section that explores topics ranging from cannabis products to politics and everything in between.
