The college is situated alongside one of Amsterdam's historic canals in a 17th century building, making us part of the UNESCO world heritage site. Unfortunately our inclusion in this prestigious list prevents any structural changes to the front of the building, therefore we are not able to make the Cannabis College wheelchair accessible. 


Amateur photography and video filming is permitted. Professional or commercial filming is permitted with written agreement of our Terms & Conditions. Please contact us to arrange this.

What does the Cannabis College do?

We exist to provide you with factual, objective information about Cannabis sativa L. in all its forms, from common industrial hemp to the rarest medicinal and recreational cannabis strains. Our non-profit foundation Cannabis College Amsterdam brings you information from the centre of a worldwide debate.


The Garden

No trip to Amsterdam is complete without visiting our garden. These gorgeous plants form one of the world’s only publicly accessible flowering Cannabis gardens, so please stop by for a truly unique experience.


Coffeeshop staff training

Coffeeshop staff training usually takes place after 19:00 in the Cannabis College. We require a minimum of 6 people and can comfortably fit up to 12 in each session. All training sessions include a basic cannabis knowledge test, free information handouts to take away, and refreshments.
