Marijuana Reviews App Offers Yelp-Style Tips On The Best Strains

The Leafly app provides crowdsourced reviews of varieties of the drug to help users find the right one for them.

With states like Colorado legalizing the use of medical and recreational cannabis, Seattle startup Leafly is looking to create a reviewing app for marijuana similar to the ones that exist for products such as computers, gadgets or shops and restaurants.

The Leafly app takes information from over 80,000 crowdsourced reviews of more than 600 types of marijuana strains to help fans or curious users find the right type for them through descriptions, ratings, and even locations of the nearest pot shop or dispensaries.


Launched in 2010, Leafly was created as an information resource for cannabis fans and users. The company updated its mobile app to include geolocation and allow users to search for cannabis strains based on flavor or the effect they desire. Users can also filter out their search by medical treatment or availability.

Through the app, users can create their own review or track their favorite strains and dispensaries. They can also keep themselves updated of dispensary news or read articles in the Leafly News & Culture section.

The Leafly app is available on the Apple app store and on Google Play.
