What’s up, this is David Downs—your Senior Editor over at Leafly News with a quick rundown on new stuff you can do on Leafly for April 2023. We got new strains, expert cannabis product picks, a better app experience, and more. That’s right—it’s some classic company blog time.

What is Leafly?

Leafly is where the world gets its cannabis info (and has been since 2012.) We list more than 6,000 strains, 4,000-plus store menus, and hundreds of thousands of strain and store reviews from tens of millions of annual visitors. Nobody does it better.

Fresh weed strains, with more to come

People come to Leafly to visit our more than 6,000 unique, hand-crafted Strain Pages, and we’re adding more to the database daily.

In March, we added or updated dozens of strains like the new RS11 cross 11:11; The Bird from Humboldt Seed Co; Skywalker OG got its name back; Chemdog’s name spelling got clarified; and the new Z Cap blew our lids off. Users also requested we add Sweet Cheesus, The Stilton, Orange Bang, and many more.

Email with any recommended additions, corrections, or clarifications—we’re here to serve.

As of this April, you can:

  • Save money by finding more deals on the Home Page, see new deal types, and see better deal pricing across the web and the app.
  • Get more local options to shop when you are News and Learn pages.
Look for this local store carousel in your Leafly News stories.

Shop it like it’s hot

We’re always working to make it easier to shop for strains. That makes sense since we’ve got 6,000+ strains listed in the Leafly database. In March, we added a bigger, more prominent “shop” button to more strain pages to let you know when that strain is for sale at stores near you.

How to order weed delivery online with Leafly

Did you know? Leafly partnered up with Uber Eats

Yup, you can order weed on Uber Eats in Toronto, Canada, and Leafly flows the order to advertising stores in the area. We started with three stores and are up to 72. Toronto rivals California for weed delivery frequency. That’s wild.

Leafly weed—Improved search by effect or flavor

This year, Leafly’s all about improved discovery. We added some fresh picks to our Strains Lists—which are pages dedicated to a specific effect or flavor in weed. Our list of Diesel strains is blowing up. Look out for refreshed smell and effect-based strain lists this month!

Cannabis lingo explodes across your feeds, and we aim to keep pace with how stoners talk, while also bringing newbies into the conversation. Leafly Glossary now has updated entries for words like pound, quarter, and gram
