It’s 4/20 and this morning Leafly rang the opening bell on the Nasdaq stock exchange.
The company began trading on the exchange in February under the ticker symbol “LFLY.” The ceremony was led by Yoko Miyashita, who became the company’s CEO in August 2020 after serving as its general counsel. She was joined by Leafly employees and friends.
“We couldn’t be more excited to ring the bell at Nasdaq. Being invited on 4/20 really underlines how special of a day this is to Leafly. As more states like New Jersey come online, Leafly will be there as a place to research and order cannabis. The industry is growing so quickly and I am looking forward to the next stage of growth, for the company and the industry.” – Miyashita in a statement

Leafly launched in 2010 as a website to lookup cannabis strains and their various effects, then added stores and product menus, and eventually product pickup and delivery options. Leafly’s website now has over 125 million annual visitors and sells advertising to stores and brands, as well as facilitates online ordering.
In 2018, Canadian cannabis company Tilray rang the NASDAQ closing bell following its first day of trading on the exchange.
