Leafly List

Meet the Leafly List Winners for 2016

Published on January 18, 2017 · Last updated July 28, 2020

With a successful year of Leafly List publications under our belt – featuring 10 dispensaries in 10 regions across the U.S. and Canada each month throughout 2016 – we felt it worthwhile to offer special recognition to the dispensaries that consistently rose to the top of the list. These standout stores – one from each region included in the Leafly List – are profiled in the following series, and every one of them deserves a visit from cannabis consumers of all kinds in their areas.

Our data-based ranking system used to calculate the Leafly List rankings is designed to spotlight the characteristics that cannabis consumers invariably search for: exceptional service, a welcoming atmosphere, fantastic product selection, dependably high quality, meaningful engagement with customers, and far more. The dispensaries below embody all of these values day in and day out, and we are pleased to announce them as winners of our inaugural Leafly List annual award.

As those familiar with the Leafly List know, rankings are always based on 100% objective customer feedback and data, and businesses are never able to pay or otherwise bargain for a spot on any Leafly List. To learn more about the Leafly List, please visit the FAQ page. Congratulations to all of our 2016 winners, and best of luck on the Leafly List to all dispensaries over the course of 2017!
