How to Get Marijuana in Barcelona Spain

If you’re looking to get marijuana in Barcelona, Spain you’ve come to the right place. Since writing this post in the fall of 2013 [UPDATE: October 2016; Membership is available at the link below in this article] I’ve developed a number of great relationships with founding members of some of the best cannabis clubs in Barcelona, and I may be able to help you get weed in Barcelona.  Sharing this experience with other people is awesome and I love to do it, so don’t be afraid to hit me up.  Just remember that it is still illegal to smoke pot in public in Spain; you may only do so in the privacy of your home or a private club.  For more information, please read my post 10 Things You Need to Know About Barcelona Cannabis Clubs

How to get marijuana in Barcelona Spain - the weed tray at Betty BoopNow here’s the original post from 2013:

Need to know how to get marijuana in Barcelona, Spain? I did too, until about a week ago when I moved to Barceloneta; a Barrio of Barcelona. I smoke pot several times a day, so when I moved here I did tons of research about how to get marijuana in Barcelona, and none of what I found turned out to be entirely true. Thankfully, I’m sitting here right now with three types of badass weed and a huge hash turd, and if you can make your way through this post I’ll tell you exactly how you can get marijuana in Barcelona safely.

Today is Sunday, the 6th of October, 2013. 6 days ago I flew here from Dusseldorf after cycling through the Netherlands and Germany. Our original intention was to cycle all the way to Barcelona, but as we approached Koln the roads became a little too dangerous for our liking, so we wrapped the bikes up and flew the rest of the way here.

We arrived in Barcelona in the early evening on Monday. By the time we got through baggage claim and made our way to the hotel, itMarijuana in Barcelona - Grapefruit Strain was late so we just went to bed. I had purchased a ton of weed and hash in Amsterdam, and then some more in Arnhem to be sure I had enough once I got here being that I couldn’t really confirm the way they play marijuana games here.

I Had to Ditch All My Weed in Order to Fly

This sucked, because I had to leave all of that behind in Dusseldorf. We smoked just before leaving for the airport and then dumped about 6 types of weed and several types of hash in the bushes in a waterproof bag for some lucky person to find some day. There was probably about 300 Euro worth of stuff in that bag, but I wasn’t about to chance getting caught with any of it while flying from Germany to Spain.

Anyway, the point is that the first night in our hotel we were dry and too tired to make an attempt to find something. But the next day we went to look at an apartment and spent much of the morning and afternoon with the taxi driver riding in circles after we gave him bad directions. Thankfully he called our liaison and got us situated, and he seemed to be a pretty cool guy.

His name was Antonio and he didn’t speak any English, so it wasn’t easy to have complete conversations, but eventually he agreed to find some marijuana for us. I paid to have him wait while we viewed an apartment, then he brought us back to the hotel. He said he could get about 5 grams for 50 Euro. He’d take the money and come back in 20 minutes.

Normally I would have said no thanks to that, but I liked this guy and he seemed legit. It was worth a 50 Euro chance.

Sure enough, he came back exactly twenty minutes later and gave me a package about the size of my thumb from the knuckle up. It was dark brown and looked like the tip of a cigar. It was wrapped up pretty tightly so I waited until I got back to my room to open it.

At first I was worried that the guy had just gone and gotten me some cocaine, but that wasn’t in the package when I unwrapped it. Of course, there wasn’t any marijuana in there either.

It was Actually Some Pretty Sweet Hash

It was a massive chunk of hash, and it was quite fresh. We rejoiced in the hotel room and filled the warm air with some mellow smoke.

But over the next few days that hash wore me down. It irritated my throat and dehydrated me, so I started looking for some green bud.

I had met another taxi driver named Alberto who had told me about marijuana clubs in Barcelona. He had volunteered to sponsor me, but then balked at the last minute. So I did some research and it turns out that you can get a membership in a private cannabis club in Barcelona. The fees are generally 20 Euro per year plus whatever pot you buy, and many of these weed clubs have oils, extracts and marijuana edibles available as well.  I found a sponsor and off I went.

Getting Registered at a Cannabis Club in Barcelona

The club needed my passport and legal address in Barcelona in addition to a 20 Euro fee. I gathered these items and got on my bike. It was a crazy ride there as the club was across the city and there was no easy way to get there. When I was getting close I asked this adorable little Spanish cop where the street was, and she surprised me by pulling out a comprehensive street book. She asked me what number and then told me exactly how to get there. But it still wasn’t easy.

The club was the Betty Boop club located on Carrer Maria Cubi. Interestingly, the numbers on the opposite side of the street were odd and went down in sequence. The numbers on the club side were even and went up. It took me a couple of minutes to wrap my head around that.

Anyway, when I got to the club I buzzed at the main entrance and was admitted to a reception booth. A flirty little guy from ScotlandCannabis Club in Barcelona ID Card for Betty Boop was there and he had me fill out a form on an ipad or something. (Never used one, could have been a tablet of some sort, IDFK) He made a copy of my passport, took my 20 Euros and issued me a registration card. Then he buzzed me through to the interior of the club.

There was a short hallway that opened into a long traditional bar. Various beers were for sale as well as coffee, tea and snacks. At the end of the bar was a compartmentalized box with a dozen or so different types of marijuana in it.

The bartender was friendly and pleasant to look at; from Barcelona, she welcomed me warmly and said I had made a good choice moving here. I agreed.

We hunched over the box together and she made some suggestions. I settled on three different types; 2 Sativas; Acapulco Gold & Grapefruit, and 1 Indica. The Indica was a local strain called Juanita.

I got a couple of grams of each and took them into the next room, which was a monstrous lounge with wall-to-wall couches and hassocks all the way around. There were two guys in the front and two guys in the rear (lol), so I found a place off to the side by myself.

I had ridden my bike pretty hard to get there and it was a hot day. Not only that but the club itself was a little stuffy and very hot. I was sweating profusely and probably looked like a freak, but I didn’t really give a shit. I crammed my new pipe full of the Grapefruit and took a few puffs. It was beautiful; light and airy, a little fluffy and indeed it left a slightly fruity but bitter aftertaste that was vaguely reminiscent of grapefruit.

It did the trick. I leisurely smoked the entire bowl while I tried to cool down. When I finally left and hopped on my bike, I was severely pie-eyed and had to take things a little slower than usual.

The Juanita (which went fast and was gone before I thought to take pictures of it) was good but unremarkable, really. I hate to say that as I love this city so far and don’t want to insult the locals, but that was my impression of this weed. However, I will say that it smokes easy. If you have a cold, a sensitive throat or just want something really mellow to smoke, then Juanita makes a good choice. But if you’re looking for an intense and memorable high, it might not be a good choice for experienced connoisseurs.

Pot in Barcelona - Acapulco Gold strainThe Acapulco Gold I bought mainly because it’s a very old strain and I could not remember if I had ever tried it before. I’m certain I must have at some point in the 22 years I’ve been smoking, but I couldn’t think of anything specific. I’m glad I chose this legendary strain and it lived up to its reputation. It smokes pretty easy, has a chocolaty flavor and gives you a nice body buzz. However, it’s also a buzz that you feel up top, so you get the best of both worlds. I’ll probably get this again after I review a few more strains.

But the Grapefruit took the cake. Mmm mmm! That’s good stuff.


(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. Application for membership is general and is not necessarily applied to any particular club unless the applicant fully qualifies.)

Interestingly, Betty Boop did not have any White Widow. Virtually every coffeeshop I’ve ever been to has had that strain, so I hope to find it here at another shop some day.

So if you’re looking for marijuana in Barcelona, you can get it safely, legally and at a reasonable price. I paid 50 Euro for those three strains, and I got 2 grams of each. I’m good with that.

    I have just returned from Barcelona, and althought I was with my family I found weed very quickly. Hash also. Don’t worry about that, you ll se it s very simple. I got a nice peace of hash for 25 £ from Pakistani guys.
    You can smell weed everywhere in Barcelona and don’t
    have to be worry about Police. At Barceloneta beach I saw guys rolling 15 metars far from two policemen
    and they don’t care. Not to mention that half of people at the beach is smoking. Enjoy your tome in weed-city

    Hi Russ, great article; thanks for all the info and offering to sponsor people.

    I am from the UK and travelling to Barcelona to celebrate my 30th on 8th September.

    As a regular cannabis smoker, I would be interested in becoming a member of a club in Barcelona. Would you possibly be abe to assist with the sponsorship please?

    Many thanks, Anissa

    I’m from sweden and going to Barcelona for a week Aug 5th with my friends.
    If we need it, could you help us get a membership in a club? Or is it possible without a recomendation?

    • Russ Hudson July 31, 2014 at 15:24 - Reply

      Hi Jacob; No it is not possible without a recommendation; that is the entire premise of the clubs; they must be private in order to exist and require current members to sponsor new members. I may be able to sponsor you, but you will need to meet certain conditions in order for me to do so. It’s best to discuss via email: Peace -Russ

  62. Tomas July 31, 2014 at 04:28 - Reply

    Hey Russ! I’ve been reading you articles and doing some research of cannabis clubs, because i’m going in September to BCN.
    I’m from Argentina and here we do not have so many varieties of weed, so i would like to try some new stuff.
    I’m travelling in September to BCN, and will email you when i’m there cause i’m very attracted to the idea of visiting a club and becoming a member of it.
    Here in Argentina we don’t have these clubs, and it seems really good to have a place where you can smoke and relax as if you where in your own home.
    I wont try to get some weed in The Ramblas , wont even take the risk, becoming a member of a club seems much more safe and it sounds like a good place to make some new friends!
    I will email you as soon as I arrive.
    Hope hearing from you soon!

      There sure is! You can go to Las Ramblas or Barceloneta and get shit weed at risk of getting ripped off, robbed, stabbed or arrested.

        Hi Russ, thanks for the reply! Obviously i dont want to risk getting robbed, stabbed, or arrested 🙂 its not that i dont want to use a club, but i dont have a permanent address here and im only here for 4 days and would assume therefore that i dont meet the criteria to join a club, was just wondering if there was any advice you could give me, thanks again 🙂

    Hi Russ,
    I’m in my 30’s and a seasoned smoker. I have had the opportunity to smoke some nice Californian weed the past few years and enjoy the strains that have a high CBD content as I find this suits me better these days. I am staying in the Raval area in a few weeks. I notice from reviews on the web “The Clinic” seems to be reviewed as having wide variety of strains but could you recommend where I might find what I;m after if at all. Any help you could give to help me join would be appreciated if possible also on May 8th I’m arriving. Thanks,

    • Russ Hudson April 23, 2014 at 15:27 - Reply

      Hi Jim; I get this sort of question a lot and it can’t really be answered accurately. Each club carries different strains, AND each club changes those strains on average once every 10 days to 2 weeks. So it’s impossible to say which club has what without actually going there and finding out. I am not familiar with the club you mentioned, but can sponsor you at some very nice clubs with excellent medical strains and concentrates when you are in the city. Just email me the day before your arrival at and I will be happy to help. Peace

    • Russ Hudson April 3, 2014 at 00:03 - Reply

      Hi D; of course, I will be happy to assist you. Yes, it is definitely worth it to become a member of a cannabis club, even for 6 days. The experience is worth just one day and many people only visit once. But over the course of 6 days you will find there is a lot to do at a good social club, and you can always head there to have a safe and relaxed place to toke up. So if you are coming this Friday for 6 days, I strongly recommend the Green Age cannabis club. You can read my review of this club here: Just send me an email at and let me know when you want to go and I will make the necessary arrangements. Peace ~Russ

Were from Canada and have never seen something like this before so it would be really cool if you could help us with getting into a club, well be flying in on april 8th and havnt booked a place to stay yet either.

      Hey Dave; I’m jealous of your backpacking trip. I Thru-hiked the AT back in the 90’s and have always wanted to put some serious miles on my boots in Europe, but life got busy if you know what I mean. I will be glad to help you guys out when you get here; no problem. I don’t have much in the way of lodging advice; it all depends on what you want. Want history, culture and nightlife? Try the Gotic Barrio (Gothic Quarter). Want to be near the beach? Try Barceloneta. If you want to be conveniently located but away from the craziness of La Rambla and PL. Catalunya, then I’d recommend something out on Diagonal, which puts you near the city’s best cannabis club, Green Age. Lots of opportunities and cool places to stay. Just email me the day before you arrive in the city at and I’ll get you sorted with a club, most likely Green Age if you want. Peace -Russ

    Hey, I am in Barcelona for a few days and my friend and I are interested in joking a club to make a purchase. A recommendatiom, possibly a sponsership would be appreciates. I’ll be checking for an email.

    Nice article thanks Russ!

    Hello Russ
    Been over in Sitges few years. Have always grown which was easy and pretty much legal BUT re the cannabis clubs… Are you aware of the new “citizens security laws” the goverment plan to bring in this year? Any idea what the effect on the clubs will be. The new laws plan for 1000 euro fines for a plant when before there were none so seems that things are going in the wrong direction. If clubs are still ok do any operate down towards this direction? thanks

      Hi Paul;

      We’re really not sure what to expect with the pending legislation/regulation that is likely to come in June. The regulation is specific to the clubs, but if laws are also changed stripping citizens of their rights to grow a few plants in private, then this would effectively end the clubs as they are based on this “private cooperative grow” concept. Thankfully there are many groups fighting this legislation, but of course there are nearly as many who are supporting it. With the wave of pro-marijuana sentiment worldwide, I think Spain’s leaders – and leaders in Catalunya – are interested in being progressive, so I have confidence that laws and regulations of clubs will be favorable. For now it’s fairly easy to gain membership at a club provided you already know someone who is a member that can sponsor you. As far as any clubs near you, my only suggestion is to check our marijuana directory to see if anything is close enough for you: Thanks for your comment. Peace ~Russ

      Hello Russ

      Thanks for your reply. Hopefully things will go as you expect although with fines and prison on the way just for videotaping the police at demonstrations who knows!. Checked your directory but there is nothing in this direction. I notice Kush and RDM have an apply for membership form. Is this worth doing or could I ask you about an introduction? I am in Barc. about once a month so it would be great to check out the scene. Regards Paul

    how can i buy some weed without being a member and lost 20 eur?

    • Russ Hudson March 14, 2014 at 21:50 - Reply

      The 20 Euro membership fee is good for one year and entitles you to all events, extras and specials offered by the club. But more importantly, it provides you with a safe way to acquire premium marijuana without threat of getting ripped off, robbed, arrested, or buying inferior product. If that’s not worth 20 Euro to you, then it would seem your priorities might not be in order.

    Hello russ, yeah its extremely hard since I have been in the cannabis community since I was 13. I go to Spain almost every summer and last summer I was abel to get some green off a friends mom who lives in estpona, Could you refer me to any club that might let it slide or at least some areas that you would recommend for me to go too? I was a pretty shy guy but I just came back from Nepal and i’ve build the courage since I’m there, you have to go there, its easy to score and you could get 10 grams for a kilo for 30 euros there.

But while I can understand your position and relate to it, I really can’t help you in this regard. However, I do encourage you to continue to stay active within cannabis communities and keep fighting the good fight. Hit me up when you’re turning 18; I’ll be around. 😉 Peace -Russ

I wrote an article that tells you everything you need to know about Barcelona’s cannabis clubs, please check it out here;

      For the record, I find it extremely rude when people write and ask me for favors and can’t be bothered to use greetings, salutations or bother to say thank you in any way; especially when telling me that they’re in a rush.

    Does anybody know, where to buy clean marijuana (not for smoking, but for making a drug against cancer by RIck Simpson) ? I’m in a need to get this (or hemp-oil which is that cure). Cheers.

    • Russ Hudson January 24, 2014 at 18:29 - Reply

      Hi Martin;

      There are plenty of clubs in Barcelona that have very clean, highly potent marijuana, but to process it for oil of the quality called for by Rick Simpson would be extremely expensive. But it might be worth it if you have a serious health issue. You can also buy ready-made oil in Barcelona, but again, it is very expensive. I’d normally never suggest this, but your best bet may be to acquire some street marijuana and process it for oil – it will be quite potent but a lot less expensive. I wish I could help more. A family member of mine is dying of a very aggressive type of cancer, but because they live in a state in the US where marijuana is still persecuted, they had no hope to acquire or make oil. Let’s hope this changes for all of our sake’s. Take Care, -Russ

      Hi Anne;

      Thanks for checking out my site. Most clubs carry medical grade marijuana, even if they don’t “specialize” in it or even know that they have medical grade. Cannabis selection does change as clubs rotate their menu to offer better variety, so it’s hard to say what will be the best choice until you arrive in BCN. I will send you an email with more details, and you can also read this article that I wrote which tells you pretty much everything you need to know about Barcelona’s clubs:

      I’m also staying near clot but don’t want to join a club because I will only go once. Is there anyway you could get me any.

      • Russ Hudson January 23, 2014 at 14:20 -

        Sorry, but that would be a violation of Spanish law. I understand your situation and know exactly what it’s like, but there are plenty of legal clubs in the city. Membership is only 20 Euro and its far safer than trying to buy on the street. If you change your mind let me know, otherwise good luck and be careful.

    Hey Russ do you need to live in spain to get into these cannabis clubs since they need your address? and would it be ok if I could get any of off you when I visit spain since it would be a bit easier and is there an age limit to sign up for these clubs because I am 18 and my friend who is coming with me is 17, so just wondering

    • Russ Hudson January 19, 2014 at 02:23 - Reply

      Hey Sam;

      Thank you for your comment. No, you don’t technically need to live in Spain in order to get membership at a cannabis club. Many tourists register using their hotel’s address without any problem at all. Many clubs allow members as young as 18, but at age 17 it is not possible to join a club. Please check out the following article that I wrote which explains everything you need to know about cannabis clubs in Barcelona:

      The best that I can do is help you obtain a legitimate membership. Even if your friend is only 17, so what? If I or someone else were to sponsor you for membership at a club, then you can simply get what you need and take it somewhere private to smoke with your friend. And when you run out of weed, you go back to the club on your own and get more. It’s actually quite simple. Send me an email when you’re around. Peace -Russ

    Hi Russ – excellent work on this topic. I’m living in BCN for 3 years now but I’ve never found a reliable source for weed. Can you hook me up with one of the clubs / are there any that do not require referral to signup?

    • Russ Hudson January 16, 2014 at 14:42 - Reply

      Hi JC;


      Yes, all cannabis clubs in Spain are private in order to be legitimate. In fact, the only way that these clubs exist is through generous privacy laws. Therefore, all clubs require that new members get sponsored for membership from existing members. But it’s no problem – I can help! 😉 Check your email for more details. Peace -Russ

I’ve recently moved to Barcelona and was wondering if you could give me some advice about getting a membership with RDM. A few friends lived here for a while and recommended it as their favourite club in the city. Would appreciate any advice you got. Thanks and keep up the great writing!

    Is there a way to go about this without giving your passport and having your name on some list?

    • Russ Hudson January 3, 2014 at 15:27 - Reply

      Hey Zujo;

      Unfortunately, there is no cannabis club in Barcelona that will permit entry without a valid ID; they are highly regulated in this regard and have no choice in the matter. However, I can assure you personally that you won’t be on a “list” – clubs are all 100% fully PRIVATE and protect their member’s identities. They’ll never send you mail or expose you to any risk. But in order to get in, there must be documentation of not only your valid ID, but also the ID of the member who is referring you. It’s actually a great system and works very well. I trust it and have signed up a number of my personal friends from the States and other places and never had a problem.

      Otherwise, my advice is to go down to the beach on Barceloneta and wait for a black or ME guy to walk by you carrying a backpack. They’ll say clearly what they’re selling (marijuana, hashish, cocaine) and will sell to you on the spot. But if you get caught or stabbed, it’s not my fault! ;-P

      Or you can just hit me up on email and I’ll get you a safe, private membership at a club:

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Hey Charlie;

      I get this question a lot, actually, and the answer is categorically NO. The clubs have a vested interest in maintaining the privacy of its members and we’re all aware that situations just like yours exist that could cause problems. Of course, I can only speak for the clubs I recommend and am a member of; RDM, Sweet Dreams, Abcda, Alhambra, Smoke Green, Green Age. If you’d like a membership I can help you with Sweet Dreams and/or RDM. You can hit me up on email;

      There are a couple of cannabis clubs in Sitges, but I don’t have the ability to sponsor anyone there. However, when you arrive on January 3rd I will be happy to sponsor you for membership at a cannabis club in Barcelona. Here’s a link to all the reviews, I recommend Sweet Dreams and RDM:

      When you arrive send me an email or Skype cfcseo and I’ll make the arrangements for you.

    I firstly want to thank you for such an informative and entertaining read on the availability of Cannabis in Barcelona. You’re the first person to accurately detail how to become a member of one of these clubs, and your story certainly resonates with me as a newbie.

    I know this is last minute, but myself and a friend are arriving in Barcelona at midday tomorrow for New Years. We’re both from London and were just looking for any help you would be so kind to give to help us get hold of some quality marajuana.

    Russ hooked me up at the RDM club and I am loving it.

    The club is very cool, I don’t have any others to compare it to since this is my first, but I love going there. I’ve actually only been getting a little weed every time so that I have an excuse to keep going back every couple days.

    They have a pool table, a projector on a wall in a lounge area, and lots of comfortable couches, nooks, and crannies to hang out in. There’s usually quite a few people there too. Also, they are renovating the upper floor so it looks like soon it will be twice as big at least with a nice new area.

    Thanks again Russ, hope you’re well!

        First, I guess I should make sure I’m ready. My Spanish is extremely basic at the moment, hopefully that is OK.

        You said in your post that a passport and legal address are needed. Do I need some form of proof of address or anything else?

        It looks like RDM is walking distance from me, although I don’t have the address, just the street you mentioned in your review.

        I could meet Sat any time in the afternoon if that works for you.

        Thanks again for the quick response!


      • Russ Hudson December 6, 2013 at 15:59 -

        Meh, don’t worry about the Spanish, I’ll take you through the registration process and help you at the dispensary too. Just your passport will be fine for registration. Let’s meet outside RDM at 16:00: Calle Bailen 123.
