Our Mission

Leaf Trade was born out of listening. Our founder, James Yi, listened to his friends about what was broken within the Cannabis industry and built Leaf Trade to fix it. That spirit of listening is what drives us today — from onboarding to education, to feature requests. We listen, brainstorm and build.

And what Leaf Trade is building, is nothing less than the future of wholesale Cannabis buying and selling. We’re doing that by giving cannabis, ancillary, and CBD businesses the tools they need to stay on top in increasingly competitive, highly regulated markets. Our tech solutions allow for the exponential growth of cannabis industry changemakers. We pride ourselves on supporting the cannabis companies that are changing the world, the marketplace, and our communities for the better.

Upgrading The Future

Leaf Trade is building and maintaining the tools that are powering the future of Cannabis. But in order to fully embrace the future, we need to address and heal the issues of the past.

Our Strategy Has Two Prongs:

As the Cannabis industry has grown, so has its carbon footprint. That’s why minimizing waste is crucial. Each mistake in ordering and fulfillment is paid for in the health of the planet. By creating efficient supply chains, we reduce unnecessary carbon output caused by mistakes.
