Leafly workers select: the pressures that introduced us to 2020

Working at Leafly is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of weeds. And while Leafly’s employees have worked hard for most of 2020 in unprecedented circumstances, they know the pressures that put them through a wild and insane year.

Check out this list of the strains Leaflets 2020 enjoyed in both the US and Canada.

Space queen

Leafly is full of newshounds, pop culture fans, and social media nerds. With Space Queen, our senior financial analyst Erica created a memory of 2020 that she will never forget.

“I heard about the Four Seasons Total Landscaping story while smoking Space Queen, and there was a moment when I didn’t know if I could ever breathe again.”


As you can imagine, Leafly has several home builders working for them. In 2020, Huckleberry impressed our creative producer Justin.

As I’m stuck at home due to COVID and working on our Homegrow series, I was inspired to create a garden on my terrace (tomatoes, peppers, chard, etc.) As a medical marijuana patient, I also started some blueberry seeds given to me by a good friend. The huckleberry was amazing and super clean! I already prefer berry / citrus stems with a high content of lime or caryophyllene. So growing both of them in my own household was dope.

Leafly employees have a real connection with nature. It’s not strange for someone on the team to get rid of their electronics and immerse themselves in Mother Nature – like Tanner, our senior business intelligence manager, did with Stardawg.

“It’s a trippy strain that is meant to be outdoors and will listen to your favorite music. While I have to look very closely at the strain, it is 100% worth the extra time and effort. Take this camping with your friends! “

Forbidden fruit

Leafly wouldn’t be the same without our pharmacy relationships. Meghan, who works as a customer success manager, even found her new favorite, Forbidden Fruit, and helped a pharmacy set up their online order.

“I asked a budtender what kind of smell is that?” And we all had a good laugh before I said exactly what I smelled. “I know I smell grass! However, it smells very specific and fruity! ‘They led me to Forbidden Fruit. It’s easy in the top 10 strains I’ve smoked in my life. The grapefruit smell is really energizing and I get a good active yet relaxed high when I smoke. Good for waking up and baking before a day of home projects or just relaxing at the end of the day! “


COVID may have stopped us from being in the office, but it didn’t stop Leafly Staff in Washington from enjoying the beautiful summer in Seattle. Program manager Karen kept the party going with Gaswerx in summer 2020.

“I have a pretty high tolerance and was happy to find a strain that actually made me shine. I enjoy being in a dull honey backwoods. ”


Resident strainologist and superdad (and senior editor) David rediscovered his love for citrus profiles with Squirt. In his own words:

“It smells just like the soft drink, Squirt. The sativa hybrid effects are great for cleaning the kitchen and not knowing / caring about what you’ve done. I bred some of my own and it was the oiliest, terpy and prettiest of them all. Really strong, mold resistant and pest resistant. Very versatile and accessible, but you can still get ripped off. Added bonus: it’s good for date night with welcoming notes of grapefruit and passion fruit. “

Peppermint cookies

We like to smoke our varieties, but sometimes a swab is enough. Our SEO manager Cassidy identified Peppermint Cookies as her favorite swab variety.

“I love dabbing off colophony concentrate in the evening. Peppermint cookies make my whole body feel high and happy – and the stress is effectively melted away. “


The Leafly 2020 Holiday Gift Guide

OG Chem

Staying inspired is part of what we do. Estelle, Leafly’s Director of Business Marketing, discovered OG Chem on 420 and has since used it to stay creative and express himself.

“My favorite thing about OG Chem is that it feels very euphoric, creative, and consistent – all of this really helped the whole thing of dealing with the 2020 roller coaster. I hunt high THC strains and am not ashamed to admit that I want my ass baked a few times a week. This consistently hits harder than almost anything else I smoke, while still allowing my brain to focus and my body to do things like do laundry and cook dinner. Best scenario: OG Chem from fresh soil in a very clean bong in the early afternoon with an art project in the series. “

Great white shark

Liora, Leafly’s Canadian editor, kept us in the Great White North. She says the strain that got her through the year was the great white shark.

“This is weed for the body if you’re still trying to stay at work, but my favorite way to enjoy it is with a rolled joint on the balcony while you scroll through endless scrolling menus after work.”

From all of us at Leafly to you, Happy Holidays and Congratulations on an unforgettable 2020! Don’t forget: weeds are the perfect gift any time of the year.
