Leafly.com is an online resource that allows users to rate and review different strains of cannabis and cannabis dispensaries. The site helps patients determine which cannabis strain is appropriate for their particular symptoms and then directs the patients to dispensaries. Leafly operates like a hybrid of Yelp and Consumer Reports in that it uses crowdsourcing to generate reviews for consumers. The company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington and is wholly owned by Privateer Holdings, a private equity firm focused on the emerging legal cannabis industry. Leafly is available for mobile use on iPhone, iPad, and Android.
