“Informative”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Not exactly a college but very informative none the less. This is a free attraction which is run by a dedicated person with a passion for cannabis. A small place it is full of information, books and other references to cannabis and you can learn all about it. There is no fixed time and you can spend as much time as you like. There is no fee but you can donate '3 euro' to see actual plants in the basement. A nice visit.

“Great informational spot!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

First time visitors should go here first! It was our first time in amsterdam and it can get a bit confusing at times. We headed here on our 2nd day and wished we had got there straight off! They pointed us in the direction of really comfortable places to smoke as most places have hard seats to have a quick turnaround, they were very informative about what types of canabis to smoke and the different strengths. You can pay €3 to go see the grow room and also donate to get a lifetime membership to use the vaporisers. Had a great time chatting away to the guys and blazing up. P.S Take a box of creme eggs over and the guys will love you.

“Extremely Informative - First day necessity”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

If you're interested in visiting Amsterdam for it's famed weed, but are a bit of a novice on what you're looking for, and simple things like etiquette, this is essential for the first day of your experience. Ask any question you like and they will be happy to get you fully informed, plus a bit of international banter to boot! They have a ton of literature and knowledge on cannabis, and whilst the grow room isn't quite what I was expecting the donation of 3 euros to look around and ask questions is well worth the money. Recommended some excellent bars and coffee shops which made our trip all the more pleasant.

“kinda cool”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

An interesting display of cannabis and cannabis culture items, including pipes, seeds, books, and a display garden. Really i don't think they should charge to let you in. But walking through the red light district its worth the stop if you into that kind of thing.

“Not Just Stoners”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

The Cannabis College is well worth a visit if you're interested and enjoy using it, and even more so if you're not. The lovely people there are happy to smash the many myths, lies and rumours about the green stuff. From my experiences they are very passionate, informative and friendly. You can ask anything from basic questions to highly detailed topics and you'll be given a thorough and interesting answer.

There's also a cool growing area downstairs which can be seen by a small donation to the college. Worth it!
