Leaf411 Background

Leaf411 was founded by Katherine Golden and Jennifer Axcell. According to ablog fromWestword, Each of these women began their medical marijuana journeys separately. Both were medical marijuana skeptics at first. But, they began their research into the therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana because of either their own last resort or the last resort of a family member. The results of their research and experience turned their skepticism into whole-hearted acceptance of medical marijuana.

Katherine and Jennifer met because of the passion and inspiration to share their knowledge. They met as information ambassadors in the cannabis and health-care community in Boulder, Colorado, and came to realize that credible information about medical marijuana is hard to come by. This fact inspired them to team up to create Leaf411.
