Coffee Shops in Barcelona: How to Get Membership

Feature image for Barcelona Coffeeshops Article

Barcelona coffee shops are private by law; they are quite different from Amsterdam’s coffee shops or Denver’s dispensaries. I get several hundred emails each month from people asking questions about the coffee shops in Barcelona, and it’s obvious that there is a lot of misinformation out there. If you’re looking to get a membership at a coffee shop in Barcelona, it’s important that you understand that you will be held to a higher standard as a member. Therefore, you should commit these study points to memory so that – if you do become a member of a Barcelona coffee shop – you’ll be a valuable new member and not just a selfish turd that only cares about getting high.

How to Join a Coffee Shop in Barcelona, Spain

*Barcelona coffee shops are private – you cannot just walk in and join. You need to be sponsored by a current member of the club, Membership card for Sweet Dreams coffee shop Barcelonaand you need to complete an application with that sponsor present (in most cases), and pay a registration fee. Sometimes there is a review and approval process. Act like a disinterested tourist or a rowdy party boy and you’ll probably be rejected. Bye!


(This is a preliminary application process valid as of October 2016; not all who apply will qualify for membership based on Spanish law and club policy. This process is not meant to be promotional in any way, it is merely intended to properly direct the hundreds of unsolicited emails that I receive each week. Application for membership is general and is not necessarily applied to any particular club unless the applicant fully qualifies.)

*Coffee shops in Barcelona charge a very small yearly fee, usually around 20 to 50 Euro. If you don’t think that 20 Euro is worth it to have a beautiful, well appointed place to safely acquire and smoke some of the world’s best cannabis; to have a place to meet like-minded people without fear of persecution, and to have all of the crazy benefits these clubs provide – game nights, pool tables, video games, weed tastings, free dinners, live music, free snacks, etc. – then you can pound sand up your ass and take your business back to the street.

Membership card for Green Age coffee shop in Barcelona Spain*Barcelona coffee shops are safe. Why do some of you write to me and ask me if the club I am considering sponsoring you at is safe? As if I am going to say; “No, it is a very dangerous club. You should not go to any coffee shops in Barcelona without being armed.” Of course they’re safe! All of the many coffee shops in Barcelona that I have been to are extremely safe and professional; just like nearly every other business you’ll enter in a day. My wife is a dainty little thing and she’s as naive as a newborn titmouse, but I’d send her to any of the clubs I frequent on her own and wouldn’t think any more of it than if she had just left for the market.

*You are permitted to take up to 98 grams from the club each month. You mustMembership card for ABCDA coffee shop in Barcelona reimburse the club for the marijuana products that you take. You are not buying anything. If you are a member, then you and everyone else shares the harvest and the expenses related to it. So when you go to a coffee shop in Barcelona, you are simply reimbursing the club’s treasury for your share of marijuana. You are not buying it. Remember this.

*Yes, you can take weed out of the club. Everyone does. But keep this in mind: possession of marijuana in Barcelona is only permissible in private. You can use cannabis at home, or you can use it in the club. When you take marijuana products out of the clubs or coffee shops, you are at risk. If you are stopped by the authorities and they find your weed, they will take it and fine you. This is not a criminal offense, so don’t pee your pants. Instead, if you decide to take cannabis out of the club, place it in your undergarments and quickly take it home or to a private location. Don’t be the asshole that walks down La Rambla smoking a joint.

Membership card for Kush coffee shop in Barcelona*You will need an address in Spain and a passport or NIE card in order to join a coffee shop in Barcelona. No, the club will not accept a photocopy.

*If you are under 18, you cannot join. Sorry. And with many coffee shops, you cannot join if you are less than 21 years old. Do your homework and ask about the age before you go through the process to attempt to join.

*Most of Barcelona’s coffee shops offer medicinal grade processed flowers and at least one or two concentrates like hash, wax, shatter, etc. What each club offers changes approximately once every two weeks, and I don’t have time to keep track. So no, I cannot tell you what strains the club has available. I can only tell you that the clubs I am a member of always chooseMembership card for RDM coffee shop in Barcelona excellent, premium strains and produce some of the world’s best, freshest marijuana. It’s better weed than in Amsterdam, and it’s way better than in Denver.

*You can join more than one coffee shop in Barcelona. If you want, you can create an entire tour of coffee shops, provided you can get someone to sponsor you at each one.

*The process of joining one of Barcelona’s coffee shops generally requires anywhere from 10 to 25 minutes of your time.

*In most cases you can acquire and consume cannabis the same day you join.

Membership card for Jammin coffee shop in Barcelona*Once you are a member, you cannot sponsor new members for a few days to a week or more, depending on the club.

*If there is a large group of you visiting Barcelona, it is possible for all or most of your group to join and enjoy the club together. There is usually plenty of room.

*Finally, there are no such things as coffee shops in Barcelona. They’re not called coffee shops at all. They are referred to as social clubs or associations. The only reason that I wrote this article using the terms “Barcelona coffee shop” and the like is because I noticed in my analytics and tracking software that the vast majority of people use Google to search for cannabis clubs in Barcelona using the term “coffee shops,” probably because that’s what most of the world has been hearing out of Amsterdam for the last forty years. So if you’re looking to become a member of a “coffee shop in Barcelona,” you should probably start by referring to these exceptional clubs by their proper terms.

    If I’m Italian and visiting with my Italian passport, how do I get an address in Spain and doesn’t it need to be linked to my passport?

      Hola Marty; Residency is not required under the law in order to join a private cannabis club in Spain. However, you cannot use a hotel or hostel address to register; you must use a regular residential address in Spain. The address on your passport or ID does not have to be linked to the address you provide to the club for the inscription. Peace -Russ

    Hi Russ,

    Thanks for taking the time to help people out in the way you are, it’s a great public service. Just a question about the basic criteria, I’m 29 and visiting Barcelona for a few days at the end of May with some friends. We’re staying in an apartment and I intend to use for recreational purposes. I am willing to pay a reasonably priced registration fee. Would you recommend say if 2 or 3 out of the group want to smoke it would be easier for one person to register and then distribute what they can get to the group back home or would you recommend each individual register, say if the amount allowed to be taken home is very small? Also will there likely be difficulties with someone like myself, a short term stay tourist, getting access to a members club?

    A “professional writer” and “certified search marketer” … Where did you go to college? You don’t seem to mention it in your biography?

      Why would I? This is a blog about cannabis; I am not interested in nor obligated to provide a resume or other detailed personal information in my author bio. That’s what LinkedIn and other sources of similar information are for. If you are interested in such information you can easily search for it or simply ask, instead of leaving your snotty little comment.

    Hey man. I arrive in Barcelona on Wednesday and was wondering it you could recommend the best clubs I could join for around 20 euros, and that aren’t too far from Rocafort subway station.

    Cheers, Ben

      Hi Christian; did we connect via email? It’s hard for me to associate specific comments with the 100+ emails I get each day about the clubs, so please let me know. If not please try again: Peace -Russ

    Hi russ, great info on your site! Kudos. I have lived in bcn now for 3 weeks and looking for a nice place to chill once in a while after a hard day of work. Send you an email as well. If you can connect me to a good association in my area (poblenou) it would be much appreciated, I have always time in the evenings (if my wife let’s me 😉 l

    Hey Russ, first of all hats off to what youre doing! Seems like youre helping out a lot of like-minded people.Great website you’ve got, full of good information and fun, I found out about it a couple of weeks ago when I did some research on the spanish situation for smokers…anyways I’m a 24 year old german and was wondering if you could give me some information on the current legal situation in barcelona and maybe help me out in becoming a member of a club…if possible.
    Since I wil arrive in Barcelona next thursday, I will write you an e-mail next wednesday.Looking forward to hear from you.
    Thank’s in advance.

    Hi russ, me and my friend have just come to Spain for a few months and are currently staying in a flat in Barcelona. These clubs look great and would love to experience one. I’m 19 and my friend is 18, would you be able to help us get a membership? or would it be better for just one of us? we would be truly grateful. thanks – Harvey

    hi russ, after quite some time of living in barcelona, i’ve finally come to here about the private clubs, i got really interested in joining one and went about to ask for info, but it appears like you need to be sponsored by a member right? i was wondering if you could help me out. i would truley be thankful for your support man. peace out

    • Russ Hudson July 4, 2014 at 13:59 - Reply

      Hi Fando; it’s funny, isn’t it? I moved my family to Barcelona without knowing about these clubs until I was already living in Barceloneta. I assume you must be a Spanish national or have an NIE? Please send me an email to, and I will be happy to try to help you. Peace -Russ

      Hi John; things are very different outside of Barcelona, and I only have memberships and contacts in the city. However, you may be able to find a suitable CSC near you by using the directory on my site: Good luck and hit me up if you come to BCN. Peace -Russ

      Hi David; with legislation looming regarding Barcelona’s cannabis clubs, I really don’t know what the situation will be like next year. Send me an email in 6 months and I’ll be happy to try to help at that time. Peace -Russ

    Hi Russ. Very informative article. I have visited Barcelona many times and did not even realise this was going on! I will be in Barcelona as of tomorrow and would love to have a place to go to read a book, away from the clamour of the music festival and enjoy a few smokes. If there is any way you could help to hook me up with a referee and/or recommend some clubs near Poblenou which are worthy of support during my stay that would be awesome. Many thanks

    Hi Russ .
    I am staying BCN in June 7th~12 with my wife. Can you sponsor us at that time ? I am gonna stay in u232 hotel.
    Is there good cannibus club around ?
    also I am looking for seed as well Is there any clubs got some seed ?
    I will e mail you day before.
    Thank you so much for the bcn cannabis information !

    • Russ Hudson May 20, 2014 at 15:08 - Reply

      Hi Kwon;

      That’s a good question and it’s one that I don’t know the answer to for certain, but I think it is probably against the law for clubs to provide seeds. At least, I have never been to a club that offered cannabis seeds to its members in any way. However, I believe there are some seed shops and head shops in the city that can provide you with what you are looking for. As far as sponsoring you for membership, all you need to do is email me one day prior to your arrival and I will make the necessary arrangements at that time. Until then, take care. Peace -Russ
