Discover the coffeeshop culture in Madrid: cannabis clubs

What is a coffee shop?

The “coffee shop” concept emerges from the cobblestone streets of Amsterdam, the European capital famous for allowing marijuana consumption in establishments open to the public. The coffee shops, true icons of this city, have forged the reputation of the city of canals as the oasis of tolerance and openness regarding cannabis. But this is not the case in Madrid.

Don’t make the mistake of searching for “coffee shop” on Google Maps to find a place to buy marijuana in Madrid, because chances are you’ll end up in a coffee shop ordering a chocolate con churros. In Madrid, the legal places to buy marijuana have another name: cannabis associations, cannabis associations or cannabis clubs.

Are there coffee shops in Madrid?

In Madrid there are no coffee shops, what there are are Cannabis Consumers Associations, and their operation is totally different from the coffee shops in Amsterdam.

Differences between coffee shop and cannabis club

Unlike coffeeshops, cannabis associations are not open to the public, but are restricted to members only. These clubs allow their members to buy and consume cannabis inside the establishment, but it is not allowed to sell it to non-members, nor to consume it in public spaces. The idea behind these clubs is to provide a controlled and safe space for cannabis consumption among responsible adults. It should be clarified that the membership fee is not like a ticket to buy marijuana: legally, cannabis associations are regulated to provide marijuana to frequent users.

Operation of Madrid’s coffee shops

How can I access the coffee shops in Madrid?

By law, cannabis clubs must be discreet establishments: they may not advertise, nor advertise on the street. They are also private, restricted to members, and, in addition, each can maintain its own rules about consumption on the premises.

In no case may cannabis associations sell marijuana to non-members of the association.

The very restrictive operation of cannabis associations makes legal entry difficult for tourists, sporadic visitors to Madrid, or simply people who do not want to register in these establishments, for whatever reason. However, you can always buy CBD flowers and cannabis resins legally from specialized CBD stores like Cannactiva. You have one of our stores in the neighborhood of Lavapiés, in Argumosa street 27.

Legality of marijuana for recreational use and CBD in Madrid

If you are planning a trip to Madrid, knowing Spain’s legal stance on marijuana can help you enjoy your stay and avoid potential fines.

In general, the Spanish capital has a relatively relaxed attitude towards cannabis consumption, and it is not unusual to observe someone rolling a joint in public spaces, always with discretion. However, in more central areas of the city, tourist sites or crowded places, the police could impose fines and confiscate the material. Although smoking cannabis is not allowed in public places, cafes, stores or on public transport, there is an exception: the purchase and recreational consumption of cannabis is decriminalized when it is done in the private sphere of your home or in an authorized cannabis club.

As for wearing CBD flowers in public, the legal situation is somewhat ambiguous. In theory, as they do not contain THC, they cannot be considered a drug, but many prefer not to take risks when traveling with CBD. Although personal consumption of cannabis is not punishable, smoking cannabis on the street in Madrid or in public spaces can lead to administrative sanctions of up to €3,000, although fines are usually more moderate and rarely exceed €450.

Where to buy cannabis legally in Madrid

Whether you are a tourist visiting the city, or if you live in the city, you can buy CBD flowers legally in Madrid if you go to stores specializing in CBD. And we can’t help but recommend that you stop by our CBD store in Madrid, at Calle Argumosa, 27.
