May 2015

Welcome to the Leafly List for Northern California, May 2015 edition. The Leafly List ranks the top-trending dispensaries and retail stores in each of the major US cannabis markets every month. This region-specific version is designed to provide helpful, community-based information for cannabis consumers looking for the most relevant dispensaries in Northern California. It highlights the most talked-about locations in the northern half of the state, based on customer engagement metrics and reviews of each location’s quality, service, and atmosphere.

Northern California shows a lot of competition but also a lot of opportunity, especially in the bottom half of the top 10 with 3 tied for the 8th listing. Only 1.6 index points separate the locations ranked between 5 and 10. More amplification through social channels would further the competition in California as a whole and make some top locations really stand out.
