Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal with severe punishment, 10= complete legalization] – 7

The laws around cannabis are slightly hazy in Rotterdam. Although cannabis is illegal, you can possess and consume a small quantity for personal use. You can even grow a cannabis plant. You will also find several coffee shops with permits to sell cannabis. 

Rotterdam Cannabis Laws

The cannabis laws in Rotterdam are not only interesting but also extremely confusing. On one hand, cannabis is still illegal. However, a small amount can be grown, possessed, and consumed by individuals for ‘personal use.’ 

Not just that, although the very famous and popular ‘coffee shops’ in Rotterdam are technically not legal, they still have a permit! 

Another very confusing thing is that only Dutch citizens are allowed to purchase cannabis from these coffee shops. However, it is true that tourists still do purchase and even smoke joints at these coffee shops. 

Law Enforcement 

If you are caught with possession of 5 grams of cannabis or less, you are still safe. The cops won’t (hopefully) create an issue about this and will simply let you off with a warning. 

Although citizens are allowed to grow a small cannabis plant meant for personal use, tourists cannot do this. 

It is also completely illegal to smoke or distribute cannabis in public, so you should avoid walking about the streets with a joint in your hand. As long as you are smoking inside the coffee shops, you will be fine. 

You are even allowed to purchase cannabis (or pre-rolled joints) from these coffee shops. However, you are not allowed to buy more than 5 grams. 

Prices, Quality and Types of Cannabis 

One of the good things about getting cannabis in Rotterdam is that you will find excellent quality and several fantastic strains! As for prices, they depend upon the strain as well as the quantity you are purchasing. 

If you buy your off-street cannabis dealers, the quality can be quite mediocre or even bad. It is best to avoid it. 

Prices of Cannabis 

Depending upon the strain of cannabis, you can find some for 3 to 5 Euros a gram, 8 Euros a gram for medium quality strains, and 10 to 12 Euros a gram for the high-quality stuff! 

If you buy your cannabis from street dealers, the prices might be even lower! 

Quality of Weed

As long as you are purchasing your cannabis from the coffee shops, you can be assured that you will get quite a good quality of cannabis. Whether you want to buy your cannabis and roll it yourself, or buy pre-rolled joints and enjoy it in the shops, you can enjoy some fantastic strains and quality here. 

Types of Plant

There are more than a dozen different strains of weed and hash that you will find in Rotterdam. However, some of the most popular ones (price highest to lowest) are:

  • Amnesia
  • Silver haze
  • Cheese haze
  • C5 haze
  • Lemon haze
  • Bubble gum
  • White widow
  • Pp
  • Nlx
  • Edelwise
  • Santa maria
  • Thai
  • African
  • Jamaican
  • Afghan

Where can you get weed in Rotterdam?

There is something called a WeedPass, which allows you to legally purchase a small amount of cannabis from the coffee shops in Rotterdam. However, you can also find several street dealers who are willing to sell weed and even hash. You can always ask some friendly locals where you might find these dealers, or simply look around the parks, or near the clubs and bars after dark. 

Cannabis Culture in Rotterdam 

Technically, cannabis is not legal in Rotterdam. However, it is just tolerated. That being said, you should still not smoke on the streets- the cops can be strict about this. Many locals and tourists smoke cannabis, but they do it at the coffee shops or home.

    • Greenie FTW!! Vacationing in Rotterdam (1st time) from California & not being able to bring organic anxiety medication posed a huge problem on day one for a particular person in our group – and still a smaller problem for the rest of us. I’ve never gotten weed from an online forum… seems super sketchy – but I thought I’d try anyways. I e-mailed Greenie ( local420delivery@yahoo com ) and within less than ONE HOUR all of our problems were solved. Of course prices were affordable – BUT THE BUD WAS JUST AS GOOD!!! I’m telling you —- strait chronic. IN ROTTERDAM! Greenie e-mailed me back ASAP, had a great way of getting me what I needed and even threw in some roll papers and a blunt for good business! So what did I do?? – called him again. Went through the sack another 1 oz time (haha typical) and needed more, so Greenie pulled through yet again. AND WITH MORE ROLL PAPERS!!! Greenie feels like my neighborhood “guy” – trustworthy and professional. I think some posts here are from unreliable vendors trying to rip off people, cuz you can tell this guy isn’t trying to rip anyone off – he’s actually running a legit business. E-MAIL GREENIE ( local420delivery@yahoo com ) IF YOU’RE DEBATING IT, cuz I DID & I WAS IRIE IN ONE HOUR!! XD
