Cannabis Museum

Passionate About Cannabis

We firmly believe in the decriminalisation of cannabis, advocating for the exploration of sustainable hemp alternatives, and promoting increased clinical trials to harness the medicinal and therapeutic potential of this remarkable plant. Join us in our journey as we strive to create awareness, foster understanding, and pave the way for a future where cannabis can benefit individuals worldwide. Together, we can build a greener, more informed, and compassionate society.

Three Floors Of Cannabis Education

The first floor introduces you to the history and origins of Cannabis. The story begins with the first interaction between Cannabis and humans and continues to the industrial revolution.

You’ll discover the many uses Cannabis has fulfilled due to its numerous properties. From seeds as a source of protein to hemp-derived ethanol for powering cars. Fibers that kept the Dutch ships afloat and firemen safe from fire. Shives that have been used in construction materials dating back to Roman times. Welcome to the diverse world of Cannabis.


Cannabis Museum

On the second floor, we introduce you to the endocannabinoid system and how the active substances of Cannabis interact with this system. How Cannabis behaves in our bodies and how this affects us in our daily life. Through art and interactive displays, you’ll find out about the numerous effects and uses and gain a deeper understanding of the role that Cannabis could play in our society, the good and the bad, the legal and the illegal.

Cannabis Museum

On the third floor, we exhibit a multitude of ways to smoke and enjoy Cannabis, from industrialised bongs and vaporizers to make-shift equipment made from Coca Cola cans, as well as highly refined extracts derived directly from the flowers. Learn more about those so-called coffeeshops that more often than not never seem to sell a single cup of coffee. Get the latest product information or simply have a chat with one of our informed guides while enjoying a cup of hemp tea.
