Smoking in Amsterdam: The Do’s and Dont’s

Smoking in Amsterdam: The Do’s and Dont’s

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t smoke everywhere in Amsterdam. Know when to light up, and when to look out.

We get it - you come to Amsterdam and almost everywhere you turn you can at least see, smell, or hear something to do with bud. You see people lighting up on doorsteps, at tram stops, and on the terraces of café's you pass. It's legal here - so you must be able to smoke anywhere, right?

Wrong.

For much of the city, you can go ahead and spark up without a single head turning. For some areas, you might get a look or two, and for others, you could even find yourself in a speck of trouble. So how to know where you can and can't smoke?

Bars, cafes, and restaurants

It feels important to state this first: you cannot smoke tobacco indoors in Amsterdam, and for any private-owned space that isn't a coffeeshop, you most likely can't smoke bud either.

When it comes to bars, cafes, and restaurants, Amsterdam boasts some pretty cushy outdoor spaces among its hospitality scene, with heated seating areas and huge terraces.

While smoking at many restaurant terraces would likely be a no-go, you wouldn't be judged for stepping around the corner to spark up and head back to your table between courses.

Terraces at cafes and bars are generally a little more relaxed if the environment is relaxed, but still some prefer people not to smoke there.

Our advice: Ask the staff where you're at if you're okay to light up, they'll not only be cool with you asking but most likely appreciate you sparing the thought!

Streets, parks, and public areas

While it might feel strange if smoking bud is illegal in your home country, you won't get pulled up by the Dutch police if you're simply smoking a joint in public and they see you.

Our advice: If you get the weather right, Amsterdam has many beautiful parks that residents typically love heading down to for a smoke.

Museums, boat tours, and private areas

As with bars, cafes and restaurants, any private areas or privately owned businesses decide their own rules when it comes to smoking on the premises. Typically for tourist spots, with a high number of visitors (smokers and non-smokers) it's often in their best interest to keep the peace by not allowing smoking on-premise, but some smaller, independent places are happy to let you go ahead, especially if they're quiet.

Our advice: Again, just ask! If you'd rather be somewhere a little more green-oriented, there are several boat tours and tourist providers that focus on green tourism and high tours.

Best Christmas Movies to Watch When You’re Stoned

Amy Wilkinson

Getting high is proven to have a wide range of benefits for many, but above all of those for most of us, it’s just pretty damn enjoyable. We’ve put together a list of our top things to do when you’ve had a smoke, and we’re stoked to share these with you.

What Are Terpenes?

Amy Wilkinson

If there’s one thing distinct to bud other than its high, it’s that sweet skunky smell: eau de Mary-Jane. This can be, for the most part, credited to our dear, aromatic friends, terpenes. These chemical compounds hold an aromatic fragrance in not just bud, but many fruits, flowers, and plants.

Meet The Bong: Your New BFF

Amy Wilkinson

The bong. We all know it, but weirdly, few of us - as big a self-proclaimed stoner as we might be - have ever really embraced its prevalence in the world of smoking. But, worry not. We’re here to break down the stigmas against the bong and fight the bizarrely random cancel culture that society imposed on this traditionally quirky inhalation device.

Christmas in Amsterdam: A Stoners Guide

Amy Wilkinson

Amsterdam is a beautiful city in the winter, and one of Europe’s hot spots for Christmas city breaks. With travel routes being open once again this year, here’s what you can expect when you visit us this Christmas.

Bud & Alcohol: Friends or Foes?

Amy Wilkinson

To start with, let’s talk about the big boozy, leafy elephant in the room: are green and alcohol just, straight up, an awful mix? While it’s not advised to drink many units of alcohol at the same time as smoking joints, many people can and do enjoy a light smoke with one or two alchohol-based drinks. But, there’s a good reason you won’t find many coffeeshops around that offer both booze and bud, and that’s the dark and dreary outcome that most who mix the two will likely encounter at some point in their lives.

What Are Cannabinoids?

Amy Wilkinson

Cannabinoids: what are they? So to cover this, we’ve got to get a little scientific here for a quick minute: cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in bud, and although THC and CBD are the most commonly known cannabinoids, there are actually over 450 compounds and more than 60 cannabinoids found in the plant.

What To Do When You’re Having a Bad Trip

Amy Wilkinson

First and foremost, it feels pretty imperative to clarify any dangers that may or may not occur when you smoke: If you’ve had a few hits and you’re not feeling good, it’s important to remember not to panic.

How To Nurture Your Munchies

Amy Wilkinson

There’s no arguing that good bud and good food are a match made in one pretty high heaven, although if you’re like the rest of us, you’ve probably had a time or two where you’ve fallen into a bit of a slump after stuffing your face with a week’s worth of potato chips after getting a craving for them.

Best Methods For Choosing a Strain

Amy Wilkinson

Even the most experienced smokers can still have difficulty when choosing what strain to smoke, so we’ve put together our top tips when it comes to picking the right strain.

THC Vs. CBD: What’s the Difference?

Amy Wilkinson

THC and CBD are cannabinoids, which are naturally occurring compounds found in the bud you smoke. There are a lot more cannabinoids found in green, but these two are the most commonly known. So what are they, and what makes them so popular?

Pre-rolls: Are they worth it?

Amy Wilkinson

Pre-rolls. Love them or hate them, we’re here to set the record straight: are they worth it? Step off the platform at Amsterdam Central Station and you’re bound to be hit with a scent of the green stuff within, lets say, at most 5-10 minutes. But what really is it that you’re smelling?
