Como se puede crear un club de cannabis
Como se puede crear un club de cannabis


Welcome dear reader! This week in Piensa en verde, the country’s most popular marijuana blog, I have a question I want to shed some light on: How can you create a cannabis club? Is it easy to create an association of marijuana consumers in Spain and be able to smoke Amnesia Haze, Gelato strain, Forbidden Fruit and any other variety? As “Jack the Ripper” said, let’s go by parts.


What is a cannabis club?



Cannabis clubs are associations that source and distribute cannabis among their members, of course all of them of age, and in an environment of privacy that reduces the risks associated with the black market or indiscriminate cultivation.


These cannabis clubs have emerged in countries where cannabis consumption has been decriminalized, as is the case in Spain, and I will calmly explain all the steps you need to take to create a cannabis club in Spain and not have any problems.


⛳ Creation and registration


First of all, like all this kind of things, it entails a paperwork and some necessary requirements, the first of them is to hold a constitutive assembly, where they must pray at least 3 founding members, as a board of directors, occupying the positions of president, secretary and treasurer. These 3 members must approve and ratify the club’s constitution, as well as the founding minutes that will be signed by all the founding members.


The statutes of cannabis clubs in Spain usually follow the statutes created by the first registered cannabis club, the Basque club Pannagh. Once you have all the documentation ready, you must present it before the registry of your autonomous community, to make it official.


In addition, it is recommended to join FAC, the federation of cannabis associations, to legitimize its operation, and promote the movement of association in cannabis clubs throughout the country.

Registration of members


To join the club, new members must complete a registration form, pay a membership fee, and provide national identification to prove age of majority. In this application, they acknowledge their habitual use of cannabis, their willingness to voluntarily belong to the association, and have no criminal record against public health.


The most important part of this request, is the forecast of consumption, ie the new member determines the approximate amount of grams consumed per month, and whose total sum taking into account all members, legitimate to the association to supply marijuana to its members.


📲 Production


The cannabis club must self-produce the cannabis consumed by its members, whose level can never exceed the maximum sum of all the grams that will theoretically consume all of its members


In the case of not being able to use its own cannabis, the club can resort to what is called a joint purchase, where the board of directors buys the cannabis from a third party. The conditions are the same as in the case of producing them of own form, the sum of the total will not be able to exceed the sum of the forecast of consumption of all the partners, that is like maximum 60 gr by person to the month. There is no doubt that the board of directors must be fully transparent, and notify all partners in a detailed way the purchase price of cannabis and record in their ledger.


🚀 How it works


One of the basic rules of operation that every marijuana club must comply with is not to advertise or advocate the use of cannabis. The structure of the club must be participative and democratic, in spite of that there are positions with certain powers, so that the decision making is more rapid, it will be necessary to make participants of all the decisions to each and every one of the members.


As the association grows, jobs should be assigned to those who perform functions in the club, such as production, accounting, administration, etc. And receive a salary for it, with a perfectly legal contract.


This detail is one of the most common mistakes, and it is very important, because a failure of this caliber can ruin your wonderful club after all the effort, Don’t mess it up!




🎯 Conclusion


In this article you have been able to learn more about the procedures and regulations that must be complied with in order to found your own cannabis club in Spain, a simple process in which you simply have to be careful and comply with the law, and your cannabis club will be the new Pannagh!

    I read your article about cannabis social clubs in Spain.
    I wonder how really hard is it to start a club, and what are reqiurements like,
    Do I need to own a property or can rent one?
    Do I need to be Spanish?
    What are the real cost of opening the club (like legalization, documents, and others)
    How should I start to open it in correct way?

    Looking forward for your reply.

    Hello I am from Malaga, Spain… To make this a short message… I would like to do something similar to BENCE RARAI with the difference that I want to focus towards elderly people with major pains (I just went through a major cancer removal and know of the pain level” and feel for all the people who dont have access to cannabis…. Also if it is possible I would like to do it based on the “honour code” which means that if you are financially comfortable you can give generously so the people who have nothing still can be relieved of their pains for free or for whatever they can afford….
    I am in the Malaga area so if you could refer me to someone local that would be fantastic… and please send me all the info that you feel I will need to make this process a little easier and most importantly make sure that the structure is established soundly and the most important that we will operate 100% legally
    Looking forward to your reply
