PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

There's now a cannabis resource center in the Rose City.

Leafly is known as the "Yelp of Cannabis," and the Seattle-based website is opening an interactive lounge with electronic kiosks inside a dispensary in southeast Portland.

Leafly staff  members say the new location is designed for both brand new and seasoned cannabis consumers.

"Leafly generally is an online resource for cannabis information, so this is the first time that we're bringing the information into the dispensaries so users can make decisions, get educated and entertain while they're waiting," Leafly staffer Linn Baumgardt explained.

The new location will offer a many services:

  • A kiosk providing personalized strain recommendations for products available in the dispensary
  • Cannabis 101 resources that cover the basics of cannabis selection and usage
  • Educational videos, fun facts and the latest cannabis news
  • Sustainably-created custom wood furniture by Coyote Woodshop
  • Colorful mural with hidden cannabis strain tiles only visible from certain angles

"The information that's there is fabulous,” Mark Cobb, a vendor to dispensaries, added. “We have a lot of dispensaries that we go to and this is like bringing it up a notch."

Leafly is holding a grand opening ceremony along with the opening of the new Canna-Daddy's location this weekend on Southeast Division and 170th Avenue starting at 10:00 a.m. Friday.
