Here we break it down for you so that you can understand why and how the clubs exist in Spain, and how to access them the right way.

Are Cannabis Clubs Legal in Tenerife?

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 5 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 Smoke Weed in Tenerife?

Is it Legal to Possess cannabis in Tenerife?

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 Tenerife this is rare, and if there is a complaint there is always a warning or 2 before the police are called – Only in Tenerife.

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 Tenerife 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 Tenerife – 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 Tenerife 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 Tenerife 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

      My friend unfortunately it is still illegal to buy and sell weed in Tenerife / Spain. This why you have to join the membership so we can give it to you for free – however contributions to the upkeep of the club are to be honoured… it´s a complicated system my friend, if you want to know know more please the only blog we have at the moment, explains all, if you´re interested then don´t worry about it and just follow the website and read all the details carefully, if you´re a regular consumer then choose a club, make an appointment for when you would like to go, pay the subscription membership fee.. receive your membership QR code automatically and immediately, and then be roughly on time to your appointment with your QR code and official identification they will register you, and then you can make it your home, come and go as you please as a member… sorry buddy, wasn´t designed for tourists so you have to just go with the flow, hope this helps… enjoy

  2. Hello, staying at Puerto de la cruz, but could move around by car… Hoping for an invite! I’m 57 years, and been a smoker since I was 15😀 ! Got lots of good comments and as it seems, the Streets are no good. Where can I turn to?
    Will be on Tenerife untill 29/10 and then heading for Gran Canaria.

      Ok Patrick, fantastic!
      So right here on our website you can get an invitation and become a member hassle free. Unfortunately nothing in the north that accepts tourists, all on our website, it´s about 1 hour driving to the south and a great day out, the best places to explore in Tenerife are from the south, all the way through the west, Masca valley, Los Gigantes – around there is our favourite and further west-north, do a round trip maybe.. oh and make sure you use the motorway through Santa Cruz and along the east side is the fastest way to the south… however if you choose the club in Los Gigantes and travel the lovely mountain roads with amazing views will take you about 45 mins max i think… and is an amazing journey through many different sceneries.. the east side is boring but fast with motorway. Hope this helps, oh and when you go to Gran Canaria hop over to our dedicated website with our dedicated team in Gran Canaria.. Obviously – Weedgrancanaria.com – Welcome to Cloud9beyond – Tenerife | Gran Canaria | Ibiza | Barcelona | Cloud9beyond.com

    Andy

    1. Hii.. unfortunately in the north is all residents only… please see our “Cannabis Clubs page” for what is available, sorry.

  5. Hi Mr.Green,

    Thanks for lots of info. Very informative page and for those who understands how “family” memberships works all is pretty much clear here.
    Just a question, can i reserve appointment with the club for registration month before or it has to be done some hours before only?

    1. Hi Tom

      You can reserve an appointment whenever you are ready, we recommend a week or 2 before you come, but either way your membership will be reserved for when you come.

  6. Hallo, wir ziehen nächsten Monat nach puerto de la cruz, hab in einem vorherigen Kommentar gelesen das es dort nur Clubs für Einwohner gibt. Wie isr es dann wenn wir hinziehen könnte ich dann dort in ein Club reinkommen?
