Cannabis in Prague

The legal status of marijuana is a matter that a foreigner may wonder about after arriving in Prague. It’s not difficult to find several mini-markets displaying the marijuana logo on their doors and shop windows when walking around the city.

The Czech Republic is still getting a grasp on its medical marijuana law passed in early 2013. Czech citizens are allowed to grow up to five plants or be in possession of certain amounts of cannabis without fear of being criminally prosecuted.

Is Prague the “New Amsterdam”?

No, marijuana is by no means legal in Prague. Nevertheless, weed-related goods are available and easy to buy in town.

There are several shops selling marijuana-flavored snacks and drink (over 200). Hence, you can legally buy cannabis in different shapes, such as alcohol with or without seeds, cakes, chocolate or lollipops, although is difficult to assess the THC amount infused in the product.

Marijuana is well known for reducing nausea symptoms during chemotherapy, improving the appetite of people with HIV/AIDS, and also decreasing chronic pain and muscle spasms.

When relocating to Czechia, we strongly recommend to avoid dealing with street dealers or use this substance in excessive amounts.

  1. However, if you’re inclined to toke the chronic, we recommend, err, we heard that it’s best not to buy it off the street, but rather ask around, particularly at more chill bars or at concerts. If you get a whiff of some wacky tobacky while you’re at a concert or bar, politely ask the holder of said hippie lettuce if he knows where to buy, or perhaps if he’ll sell you some of his. Some bars even have their own dealers who hang around, so courteously asking the barman may work as well. Whatever you do, never buy from a dealer who walks up to you in the street, or most often the train station. Next to cabbies ripping off tourists, so-called “dealers” are the most notorious for taking your green with no green in return, often giving you a half-second peek at something that looks like ganja but is more likely oregano, and running off with your cash after mumbling something about seeing a cop. Remember, if it looks and feels shady, it probably is.

  2. We were at the Cannafest 2017 and someone whispered in my ear on how to score some Prague finest. I know Prague is a marijuana friendly city and this is my first time coming here. So I was recommended to GreenEdge ( and honestly I found the best smoke ever from GreenEdge. I wish I had a dude like this way back at Amsterdam where I’m coming from. I highly recommend.
