The guys there were really helpful, went there twice, the first time we paid €3 for our lifetime entrance to the garden, tried the volcano for the first time the lady in there told us some good coffeeshops, I think it's all ran by sensei seeds as they have a shop across the lake and the hemp and marijuana museum...

If you visit Cannabis College you basically do not need to go to Hemp museum. The guy with long hair knows everything marijuana related. Just ask him, as he is having many visitors every day and not talking that much by itself. =)

I was researching the use of cannabis oil for the treatment of cancer. The staff were very informative and helpful. They had lots of literature and guidance on the subject, they even personally got me some websites and groups that could help out in the UK. All staff spoke good English and were very sympathetic and understanding. No question you... More

When we walked in, no one greeted us. It felt way more like a coffeeshop than a place to learn anything. The information they did have was not shown off very well.

Right upon arrival you have a pretentious, fat sweaty bloke greeting you. All he tried to do was publicly embarrass my mate and I with information he hadn't researched. And the woman behind the counter blindly agreeing. This place needs to get it together, I suggest hiring some new, people friendly employees who know what they're talking about.

Didn't take a lot from this. We stumbled on it by chance and I was far from impressed. Amsterdam is known for its weed and whilst there was probably so easy useful information here, it was laid out horribly and quite sparse.

Anything and everything about cannabis from this free source in the red light district---they teach about what can be made from hemp, how to use vapes, and answer any questions from many tourists---while there last week, a group of about 25 hispanics came in at one time--luckily they can give tours in Spanish and English! Very friendly, you can smoke... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
