Claiming to be the “world’s largest cannabis information resource,” the Leafly app aggregates information from 800,000 crowdsourced user reviews of some 650 strains of marijuana. What users get is an ambitious mashup of the Wikipedia, Grindr, Yelp and Urban Dictionary of kush.
Launched back in 2010, the Seattle startup filters searches by effects, price, flavors, type (edible, concentrate, etc), and even mood. Combining its vast menu of strains with geolocation, the new mobile app lets you scroll through hundreds of different varieties and then directs you to the closest pot shop where you can pick up your selection. Similar to Yelp, Leafly users are encouraged to rate strains and review dispensaries they’ve visited.
Unfortunately, Leafly only features US states that have legalized medical and/or recreational marijuana. ‘Til then, sit tight.
