  • I was researching the use of cannabis oil for the treatment of cancer. The staff were very informative and helpful. They had lots of literature and guidance on the subject, they even personally got me...  read more »
  • When we walked in, no one greeted us. It felt way more like a coffeeshop than a place to learn anything. The information they did have was not shown off very well. 
  • It is curious, rare that there is a place to inform and teach about the consumption of cannabis. It is allowed to be considered an educational place. The access and the information is free, but access to the garden and see plants, is paid.

  • If you really wanna learn more about cannabis culture without any prejudice or early judgments, it's a great place to do that. People are nice and really like to do what they do there. ;-)
  • If you go on in with the right questions, patience and attitude, you'll love the place. The Canadian bloke was real funny. If you know what you want cannabis wise, this place will point you perfectly in the right direction. You cannot buy weed or anything from here. The €3 per person you pay is like a life-long membership to use the equipment he provides, but bring your own green.
  • Extremely friendly staff, free cannabis information centre, they can answer pretty much anything, from which coffeeshops to visit, to how to grow cannabis. You can smoke here, and even try out the volcano vaporiser for free. They also have a downstairs area with real cannabis plants, costs a few euros to go down but everything that is free.
  • The guys in here will literally answer any question you have! They are experts! You only have to pay 3 euros if you wanna look at their collection downstairs and to use the vaporiser (bring your own stuff) and you can go back any time as much as you want as long as you bring your vouchers they give you!!
  • Cool tiny place, if you're a complete newb you might learn a thing or two. Downstairs is just few plants, nothing out of the ordinary, however it is worth buying the tickets to use the vaporisers as not many coffee shops have these. p.s. apparently tickets are for life, so don't loose them
