Where to find cannabis in Tenerife
You’re about to leave for Tenerife, your ticket is ready, the hotel is booked, and you have all the necessary travel guides to move stress-free. You’re missing only one little detail: given that you really don’t want to give up your favourite relaxing moment, you want to find out where to find cannabis in Tenerife.
The web is full of information, mostly incomplete and inconsistent, and most of the times is not always easy to understand what to do. But don’t worry, the important thing is to know where to go to find the right information and we’ve done this for you.
Here is a list of information that will be handy when you are looking for cannabis in Tenerife.
You’ve probably heard that cannabis is legal in Tenerife but, careful, it’s incorrect! Cultivating cannabis is allowed exclusively for personal use but drug-dealing, possession and consumption in the streets is forbidden. The possibility of cultivating cannabis for personal use has aided the creation of consumer’s associations that manage together the cultivation of their own plants. These associations in Tenerife in which you can find cannabis are called Social Clubs and are tolerated by the police because they are regulated by the law. This means that buying and consuming cannabis in the clubs is allowed but taking it in the street isn’t. Therefore be careful because casual checks in Spain are more frequent than in Italy and it’s not hard to be stopped by the police. Being caught with cannabis, even if bought in a Social Club can lead to fines. Having mentioned this, let’s see where to find cannabis in Tenerife.
How to access a Social Club
We talked about the legal aspect, so let’s see now where to find cannabis in Tenerife.
As mentioned above, many private Clubs have been opened throughout the years and given that they are tolerated by the authorities, they make it possible for people to buy cannabis. It sounds easy but it isn’t: most of the Social Clubs in Tenerife are strictly reserved to the members who reside in the island. How can someone be granted access to one of these clubs then? It’s not that easy given that most of them, as they work on the edge of legality, are very careful about who they let in. A strict selection at the door is essential so as not to have legal issues. The access methods are substantially two:
- Having a local member recommend you.
If you are lucky enough to know anyone local, you’re set. The access in the social clubs happens following the introduction by an internal member of the club.
- Getting in touch with the club in advance to gain access.
If you don’t know anyone in Tenerife, I must say that some clubs actually accept non-resident clients. How to do that? It’s not so hard. You need to get in touch with the club before your departure and give all the required information. You also need to send a copy of your ID and pay a joining fee. Some clubs could require a preliminary interview before letting you in. If you are happy about this process you can try and get in touch with the clubs I selected for you. Alternatively you can try to use the tool available on the Spain Weed Guide website. This website available in English offers a detailed guide of cannabis in Spain and it’s also useful to book an appointment with the social clubs.

Illegal cannabis and air transport
You really can’t be bothered to get in touch with one of the clubs, you don’t want to send them your document and you don’t want to pay the membership fee because you think you can find alternative options? Forget about it and follow my advice! Whether you want to deal with pushers in the street or whether you want to take your own cannabis with you: don’t do it! Both solutions are very risky. Remember that Spain does not allow consumption in the street and drug dealing is severely punished. Security checks in airports are very strict and it’s not worth it risking it. It’s better to spend some time looking for a cannabis club and joining it instead!
