At leafie we welcome submissions and contributions from voices outside of our core team. We publish articles, features, essays and guides exploring the world of cannabis and its intersection with modern life in the UK and beyond. We class ourselves as an online magazine aimed at potential and existing consumers of cannabis-based products who don’t fit into the tired definition of the stereotypical ‘stoner’.
Rather than catering for the dedicated cannabis fan, leafie’s mission is to demystify the world of CBD, cannabis and related products to people who want to know more about the plant. Instead, we focus on all aspects of societies relationship with cannabis from an unbiased perspective. We do not favour any particular side of cannabis culture or campaigning, instead, we hope to give a voice to everyone. To view our full contributor’s guidelines click here.
We’re keen to broaden our subject matter beyond the obvious. Specifically, we’re looking to hear from underrepresented voices within the cannabis community. We also welcome pitches for articles that look past direct cannabis subjects and focus on music, art, fashion, current affairs and issues and how they link, directly or indirectly, back to the interests of our readers and our core mission.
