An Insider's view of Leafly

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's amazing. I’m not really a cannabis user, and when I interviewed it was the people, vibe, and opportunity that drew me in. It’s exciting to make new things that consumers will see and use, that will help them find what they’re looking for. It’s what we’re all about.
