Medical Cannabis Clubs & Show in Barcelona
We’ve written a lot about cannabis clubs in Barcelona. We love it. The effect that this booming cannabis club trade has on making people safer and, more importantly, regulating the consumption of marijuana is real social progress. There are hundreds of cannabis clubs in BCN and the grey area of the law in which they sit has made it much easier to regulate it in a sensible way. It’s now much easier to keep cannabis away from children and at last there is a mature approach to the taxation and sale of weed in Spain. Not only does it make financial sense, but it makes social and public health sense as well. It’s a system that we will hopefully see spread across the rest of the world soon.
The other positive aspect to this mature approach regarding cannabis consumption is that more people can benefit from the medicinal effects of the cannabinoids found in weed. Cancer patients, those with M.S. and people suffering from regular seizures can now legally obtain a drug that helps ease their symptoms. Likewise, people with minor conditions like insomnia, back-pain and other aches and strains can now get access to this wonder-herb to help ease their ailments. If you are suffering from a condition that can be treated with medicinal cannabis, the you know how much of a leap forward in progress this is for users.
In this article we’ll look at those cannabis clubs in Barcelona where a medicinal approach is taken to cannabis consumption (Greenardos, Strain Hunters, The Plug) and we also recommend CBD Shop in Barcelona. A lot of cannabis clubs in Barcelona are purely for leisure and recreational use, but there are a few clubs that have put the focus on medicinal cannabis use. If you know your CBD from your THC then this article is perfect reading for you.
Greenardos is one of the foremost medicinal cannabis club in Barcelona. They are based near Guinardo Parc, to the north-east of the main city attractions, but still easily accessible via the Metro. Since the BCN cannabis club’s inception they have always been focused on promoting the medicinal aspects of cannabis consumption. This is the only cannabis club in BCN that has its own medicinal marijuana program. If you are assessed by their in-house doctor as needing weed for medical reasons, then not only will you be a member, but you’ll also receive a generous discount.
Luckily Greenardos takes mature approach to medicinal cannabis but doesn’t throw the idea of a relaxing social club out the window. Greenardos cannabis club has a great environment, excellent décor and it’s a great spot to spend time with friends. The fact that they offer medicinal prescriptions and cannabis strains is a bonus. A very progressive and forward-thinking bonus. They have some of the best CBD heavy strains in the city and unlike a lot of cannabis clubs in BCN, they will be able to tell you which strains are right for you. Greenardos is truly unique in this aspect.
If you want membership here, then it’s easy to request an invitation. They have a website and they are very approachable. Always be respectful and don’t put the club owners in a compromising position. They are one of the few truly medical cannabis club in Barcelona, so try to show them the maximum amount of respect. There are plenty of people who need a service like this, so don’t put those people’s health in jeopardy by compromising the club.
Strain Hunters is run by the same team that produce the Strain Hunters web series. The series is known around the world as the only show where they hunt for some of the world’s rarest and unique breeds of cannabis plant. They have built themselves an international reputation as purveyors of excellent cannabis and if you are reading this you’ve probably heard of them. They also run Greenhouse seedbank, which has a reputation as one of the best cannabis seedbanks in the world. Largely because of their unique genetics which have been acquired from all over the globe.
The cannabis club in Barcelona is the sister site to their coffeeshop in Amsterdam. As you would expect it has some truly breath-taking strains of marijuana. The clubs located near the El Born district of Barcelona and is only a relatively short distance from the seafront. As far as location is concerned, this is a perfect cannabis club if you are visiting the city and have trouble travelling long distances.
As expected the strains here are mind-blowing. While they don’t offer a medicinal cannabis discount like the Greenardos, they do provide some very high-quality cannabis strains. If you ask for a CBD heavy strain at Strain hunters, they are going to know what you are talking about. The only down-side is that while they may offer medicinal level strains some of the time, it isn’t their focus. They are more concerned with having the tastiest cannabis strains in BCN and having unique breeds for their members to experience. The staff are super friendly though, so they should be able to advise you on what CBD heavy strains they have available if you visit.
Obtaining membership at Strain Hunters cannabis club in Barcelona is a bit trickier than joining Greenardos. They aren’t quite as open as many of their associates in the BCN weed club scene. Getting membership here can be a little difficult as they often stop accepting new members. It’s worth trying to get membership because of its excellent location but if you are truly a customer who needs it for medicinal purposes, Greenardos is a much better bet.
Another cannabis club in Barcelona that has earnt itself a stellar reputation for high-grade genetics is The Plug. The club is located closer to Montjuïc than the other clubs mentioned above in the slightly more locally populated area of El Poble Sec. They were originally quite a closed-door community, but in the last few years this Barcelona cannabis club has been much easier to approach about membership. The layout of the cannabis club can accommodate quite a lot of people and it’s always got an excellent atmosphere. Expect a vibrant mix of BCN residents and international smokers if you visit.
As far as medical cannabis clubs in Barcelona goes, The Plug is easily accessible. You can request membership through social media and they are often open to new members. They don’t tout themselves as a medical cannabis dispensary though, so don’t expect any discounts. They do however have a good range of high-grade strains with great genetics and heavy CBD content. The staff here also know what they are talking about, so they should be able to point you at CBD heavy strains. As with many BCN cannabis clubs, the exact balance of THC to CBD will be vague, but they should have something available.
The Plug BCN cannabis club has got an excellent reputation for cannabis and has recently won awards. They had a home-bred cannabis strain awarded a prize at the 2018 Spannabis Cup which is a great sign that they really care about their weed and their members. Some cannabis clubs in Barcelona just sell generic weed strains to make a profit, but associations like The Plug really make the BCN weed scene what it is. A passionate and active community of marijuana enthusiasts.
If you need CBD but you aren’t a fan of getting stoned on THC, the it’s also worth mentioning the CBD shops that have sprung up around Barcelona in the last few years. CBD is completely legal, but it is unfortunately an unregulated market so finding the good stuff can be hard. There are a lot of suppliers online but many of them sell products that have not been checked and may not even contain CBD. That’s why it can be useful to have a physical location where you can discuss the product with staff and return it if you are unhappy.

Sensitive CBD is our pick for the best CBD shop in Barcelona. There are plenty of CBD oil shops to choose from in Barcelona but what we like about Sensitive CBD is their transparent approach to CBD oil sales. They have percentages and milligrams listed right on the label. Thanks to the healthy cannabis cultivation scene in Barcelona you can be sure that the production of their CBD strains was done in a professional manner and that you are getting what it says on the label. If you are at all concerned, then head to the shop and talk to the staff about the quality of their products. That’s the beauty of a physical location.
The shop itself is in El Born, so is very convenient for tourists and locals as it can be accessed easily. No confusing train rides to the outskirts of the city. The shop is really close to Jaume I metro station making it a breeze to locate. If you do visit the shop and like the quality, then you can also order online as well. There are plenty of other CBD shops in Barcelona, but we don’t think many do it quite as well as Sensitive CBD.
