The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
How to get there
  • Nieuwmarkt • 4 min walk
  • Waterlooplein • 8 min walk

This place is a must visit for all, it's a great place to get info on all things cannabis related - the staff are incredibly knowledgable, especially Tan who is one of the friendliest people ever with a whole lot of info to give, whether it be the best place to buy, which strain is best for you (especially if like me you have more medical reasons to smoke rather than just recreational) even to some cool gems around amsterdam that aren't cannabis related (in my case, this was all things cat related!) the Cannabis College is a great place to just chill and soak up information at the same time. You can read, watch movies, take a look at the garden for a small donation (which means you can then use the vaporisers for free, for life!) totally worth it in my opinion as within 6 months I am on my way back to visit amsterdam and cannot wait to go back and see Tan and chill here. Id especially recommend if you have no experience of smoking Cannabis but want to try, you leave here feeling educated enough to make wise decisions (knowing you've been advised of all the best places to go and not be ripped off etc) you can ask as many questions as you need, the guys are always happy to help! I can't give this place (or Tan) more of a recommendation (or more stars!)

Great place and mandatory on the very beginning of your trip to Amsterdam. Staff there is really cool, helpful and friendly. They will tell you anything you want to know about cannabis in the Netherlands. They will also recommend few coffeeshops you should visit, depending on your previous experience with stuff. If you have a while, visit their garden (3 Euro) to see and learn about cannabis.

Cant remember how I found out about this place but I have popped in most times I have visited Amsterdam. It really is the bible for anything cannabis related. The people that run the place know everything directly related to cannabis. They also know everything around the surrounding area, I asked where the closest ATM's were as well as where I buy a copy of the magazine high times.

As well as all the info they provide you are also welcome to sit down and have a smoke. Very nice to do so as they have magazines to read, posters to look at. Overall its just very relaxed compared to some of the coffee shops where its just buy buy buy.

They also have a grow room downstairs that you can view for a small fee, around 2 euro I think. Not super amazing but maybe still worth a look, the 2 euro also goes to keeping the place running so worth it. Once you have paid to go downstairs this also entitles you to use the

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.

If you are someone who is interested in a cost free learning experience, then this place is for you. Cannabis College offers a tour of their facilities and information pertaining to how to properly and accurately grow marijuana plants, irrespective of the climate. The also offer guests an opportunity to fill out a quiz, which if passed will allow guests to receive a certification of graduation. The staff were also friendly. I would recommend this experience to other visitors for sure.

visited the Cannabis college, which is on the red light district, only a little place so keep your eyes peeled, tells you about the history of cannabis, its benefits etc and you can smoke your own In there if you take it with you, the guy who runs it was telling some lads about how best to smoke what they had and the history of it and what benefits it had, very informative. Entry is free of charge.

Like other reviews have said, really visit this place when you first arrive in Amsterdam. You will get sound and knowledgeable information about local coffee shops, what to buy etc. The guys in there are like walking encyclopedias.

Having been in the middle of January the place was quiet so spent a few hours talking to them in there- answering any questions we had initially and after seeing the 'garden', but we even got gardening tips for setting up our vegetable patch this year as he is a horticulturalist himself. Really great experience and especially welcoming and informative to someone such as myself who isn't really a 'smoker'. Not intimidating at all and actually a really pleasant place to visit.
