Are Cannabis Clubs Legal in Gran Canaria?

Cannabis Clubs are not fully legal in Spain – yet! They operate by using a combination of the Spanish constitution and the newer existing by-laws. Please read our article on the history of cannabis Clubs in Spain. Basically the courts have made many historic rulings finding nothing illegal about consuming cannabis in private cannabis clubs, but the government in Madrid are keeping tight lipped on the situation. Although Madrid has stated that they are simply waiting and watching very carefully before making a decision, I feel we are getting close, but I wouldn’t expect anything to happen in the next few years. They say they don’t have enough information, so they will allow the clubs to exist as they are, in order to study cannabis and it’s effects. But have no doubt, it is still an ongoing revolution to fight for our rights for the safe consumption of cannabis.

Is it Legal to Possess cannabis in Gran Canaria

Yes, and no… it´s legal to consume only in Private, not in Public. Cannabis is essentially de-criminalised, which means you can’t get a criminal record for personal possession, if you are found to have 5 grams or less in public, you will receive a fine of 200€ or more, but no criminal record, any more than 5 grams in public may be considered as “you are a supplying” and you may be detained for further questioning down the police station.. but if you were found to have cannabis in a private setting, this is legal, so maybe at your family or friends apartment, or your own room or apartment – there is 1 catch in the law – “it must not affect your neighbours way of life” if your neighbour complains and the police are called you will be told to stop smoking for your neighbour, nothing more, they will leave the herb with you, but if you are in a hotel it’s possible you will be asked to leave. Although in Gran Canaria this is rare, and if there is a complaint there is always a warning or 2 before the police are called – Only in Gran Canaria.

What is a Cannabis Social Club?

Ok so… it’s legal to consume cannabis in a private setting, but even in your apartment this can be difficult. So what do you do? You make a private cannabis club, somewhere “out the way” where no one will be affected, so that your friends and family can come together and collectively grow their own weed just for themselves.

In the beginning it was very different, cannabis clubs made their own rules and regulations in order to stay legal, extraction fans and filters as to not disturb the neighbors, very basic furniture, homemade generally. But what makes it legal still today is the fact that they are not open to the public, only friends and family, and if your friends are cool you can invite them to come too, but we’re all very close friends and family and not open to the public. If a stranger were to try to access he would be rejected and told it’s a private members only association and you must be invited. This is what makes a cannabis social club legal. But that’s just the half of it.

How does a Cannabis Club in Gran Canaria Operate?

Ok… It’s legal to grow cannabis plants in your private – wherever. It’s also legal to give it away for free, so if I grow some herb and you would like some, provided you are a consumer (because it is forbidden by law to encourage the consumption of cannabis, so you have to be a regular consumer) and of legal age (18+) I could take you to my apartment and give you some, provided it’s free and I don’t charge you anything for it, it’s legal.

The legal term for an association is a “non for profit organisation” ok.

As we’ve mentioned it’s legal to grow and distribute cannabis in Spain for free. So the other half of what makes weed clubs legal is we grow and distribute amongst our “members of family and friends” for free, because what we grow amongst ourselves assures us the safety from the “unknown” black-market cannabis. The fight for the safe consumption of cannabis.

But the rent on the premises and the electricity bill… etc, must be paid, so traditionally family members and friends all contributed happily to the upkeep of the premises, be it a small apartment, or a big commercial building, the cleaning was done by the members themselves, clean up after themselves and take turns to clean the toilet etc, but of-course the real responsibility fell on the founding members of the club, in Spain you need 3 founding members to create a cannabis association. It’s their creation so they are keen to crack the whip on family members and friends.

How to Access a Cannabis Club in Gran Canaria – The right way.

This is where we make life easy for you, we got frustrated with contacting the clubs anyway we can, and then waiting for an answer, and still you´re not sure if the club is any good. So we made this website for you to use… to help you stay clear of the expensive tourist trap clubs. You could do what we did in the beginning and contact them individually… or have faith and believe that we really do work for the people and with the clubs to offer you on the best cannabis clubs in Gran Canaria If you do contact the clubs directly, don’t talk about the weed and how much is it? Don’t ask too many questions, get down to the club if you´re invited and hope… You´re still not obligated, when you get to the club ask them to see some weed and the club before you commit to becoming a member, in Barcelona it’s not possible, but in Gran Canaria it’s all good, unless you don’t like what you see, and then you politely say, do you take card? No cannabis club takes card, this is your exit strategy, tell them you are going to take some cash from the machine… never to return, lol! Otherwise it´s easier and faster to just click the button bellow, chhose a club, read the details carefully, and book an appointment for as soon as the next 15 mins… From website to club in 15 mins guaranteed – since 2016

      1. Hello
        I would like to know where I can join a cannabis club near Puerto Rico. I am on holidays at the Amadores Beach and looking for a cannabis club for so long but cant find anything near. I would very happy if you could help me! Looking forward hearing from you 🙂

        1. Hii

          Unfortunately there is only 1 club in the south of the island… on the cannabis clubs page under Maspalomas.

          1. If I joined in maspalomas can I visit the puerto roco coffee shop or do I have to join again

          2. No sorry, the clubs are all seperate. if you are staying in Maspalomas then go to the Maspalomas club, if you are staying in Puerto Rico then go the club in Puerto Rico.

  2. Looking for weed in Puerto Rico, staying in Castillo de sol apartments, could you point me in the right direction?

    1. Yes right here on our website, if we had a club in Puerto Rico it would be on the “Cannabis Clubs” page. Choose Maspalomas my friend, that´s the closest.

  3. Hey man,
    I’m probably being a bit dumb but I’m going to Gran Canaria for a week holiday this week, staying in playa del ingles I think it’s and o just wanted to know how easy it is to just go get some stuff etc and what I have to do:)
    Apologies if you’ve already answered this kinda thing before and I’m being blind lol

    1. Sorry the late response, we have your booking. Yes the clubs were right in front of you, choose in the menu “cannabis clubs” read the details and follow the instructions.

    1. It´s not legal to take away from the club… Take a look at our FAQ´s on the home page

  4. I’m visiting PLAYA TAURITO in Jan looking to enjoy a smoke, any recommendations?

    1. Hiii… yes the club in Maspalomas is the closest, in the menu on the “cannabis clubs” page – Maspalomas

    1. Hii… yes we have a cannabis club in playa ingles – it´s listed under Maspalomas, it´s on the border…. you can find it in the menu on the cannabis clubs page. Maspalomas

  5. Lee Fairhall

    I’m going to maspalomas golf in August and wanted to know if u would accept me as a member for a week.

    1. Hiii.. Yes no problem, just click the menu and choose “cannabis clubs” and then click “Maspalomas”

    1. Not all clubs accept tourists, but the ones that do take tourists don´t mind and also speak a fair amount of english, however if you make an effort goes a long way, smiles all round. English is the universal language, I see Italians and french people communicating in english, etc… how else I guess.

  6. Do you have a club in puerto rico ease as we are staying near the beach here and would like to join please could you tell me if you are currently open thank you ray

    1. Hiii… yes there is, click on the menu and then go to the “cannabis clubs” page, choose Puerto Rico and read the details and follow the instructions , easy.

  7. Hi, I am not exactly familiar with cannabis, but I do want to give it a shot to see if it can get rid of some of my pain from Fibromyalgia. When you get there, what do you do? Do you speak to someone who explains what you can purchase and sells it? I’m going to be going on my own and I know I’m going to feel very uncomfortable. I know you can be like that going into any new group of people, so once I’ve made that initial leap I’ll be fine. But when I go in, do I buy it there over a counter like you would a drink, or do you buy it from other people there? Excuse my ignorance but I’ve no one else to ask about this.

    1. Ok, if you tell us that you are not a regular consumer then we have to reject you, it´s illegal to promote cannabis which includes to non consumers. The government does not want to encourage non consumers to start. However if it is for medical reasons then that´s a different story, despite the government we all have our rights when it comes to self medicating, however be aware that in Spain it´s only recreational so you will have to seek your own advise from preferably a doctor, alternatively there is a lot of information online that will help you. It´s still not legal to buy and sell weed in Spain, that is why you have to join a private cannabis club. To answer all your questions just think of Amsterdam but slightly different, and the door is closed to the public. Hope this helps.

      1. Hi, thank you for your reply. I haven’t actually ever been to Amsterdam, but I think I understand a bit better now. I did have a doctor for over 10 years who was trying to help me and she suggested this. Then she retired. So I had to find someone new, that she recommended. And she just couldn’t care less. So I have to change. But that’s nearly impossible here. We’ve been talking about this for years, but I have definitely to get myself a doctor in the Maspalomas area. Thanks again.

  8. Hi… we are right here, in the menu go to our “Cannabis Clubs” page… choose a club and you´ll find all the details, opening hours, map with rough location (1-2 mins walking from there) – read all the details and follow the instructions

    1. Good afternoon,,
      Am heading to gran canaria, mid December, and just wanted to clarify if the club in Puerto Rico will be accepting new Members


  9. Hi,
    We visit Amadores next year, which would be the nearest Cannibus Club to us?
    Thank You.

  10. Hi there, I’m coming over to Puerto Rico in December and was wondering if the club was talking new members

  11. Hello! I am coming to visit Las Palmas in January. As a person who likes to have a daily smoke, I would love to know if there is any place where I can go without a problem of me being a tourist. Don’t mind if I pay a membership, but I would love to buy and take it with me instead of smoking there. Is there any chance?

    1. Hello.. yes you have a choice between Santa Catalina and San Telmo on the website, you can find the answer to your questions there… Thankyou.
