Leaf Trade was born out of listening. Founder, James Yi, listened to his peers regarding what was broken within the cannabis industry and built Leaf Trade to fix it. This spirit of listening still drives us today — from onboarding to education to feature requests — we listen, brainstorm, and build.

Leaf Trade is building the future of wholesale cannabis buying and selling through technology that streamlines and simplifies the industry’s supply chain and business operations. Leaf Trade’s innovative product-focused, user-centric, platform gives cannabis and ancillary businesses the powerful tools they need to grow, excel, and scale in the highly regulated and increasingly competitive cannabis industry.

We support cultivators throughout the entire wholesale selling process through our easy-to-use cannabis marketplace connecting cultivators and dispensaries via flexible integrations, amplifying brands through bespoke advertising opportunities, supporting inventory management, and robust advanced analytics.

Our cannabis tech solutions allow for the exponential growth of cannabis industry changemakers. We pride ourselves on supporting cannabis companies that are changing the world, the marketplace, and our communities for the better.

A Note From Our CEO & Founder, James Yi

As the Founder and CEO of Leaf Trade, I lead company strategy and execution to ensure Leaf Trade delivers innovation, value, and happiness to its stakeholders. In the nascent cannabis industry, I bear a keen industry understanding and proven technology experience, having previously co-founded NextME, and serving as a cannabis industry consultant. Leveraging my experience building, NextME, I started Leaf Trade to provide wholesale cannabis companies with technology-enabled solutions to support scaling an entire industry.
