The Ibiza cannabis clubs are in the midst of their popularity growth, and many of those are being opened to tourists and locals near resorts and beaches. The reason for this is the development of policies in the EU and the recent changes in laws that permit personal use of cannabis in Spain but still forbid its commercial use and trafficking.
Currently, the marijuana culture in Spain is booming and has put the authorities in the middle of a grey area where all districts and places have a different tolerance for the plant. There are many cannabis clubs Ibiza authorities allow today and they are thriving, especially in the tourist season. However, up until recently, there have been tight and strict regulations for cannabis clubs in Ibiza when compared to those in Barcelona or Murcia for instance. And just because there is a lawful tolerance to cannabis in Spain, you still need to keep a low profile and follow the rules to stay safe and under the radar.
Marijuana dispensary places

In the island of Ibiza, or entire Spain for that matter, you won’t find any readily available places like the famous Amsterdam coffee shops where you can buy and smoke weed freely. Instead, if you want access to weed, there are the popular Ibiza cannabis clubs that are on the rise at the moment, but even there you might have to put in some effort to get in and become a member in order to get weed.
The reason why the cannabis clubs of Ibiza are rather keen on being careful with their members and who they sell weed to is that there are the legal ramifications that control these places and how they operate.

10 Things NOT to Do in Ibiza
Get familiar with the lingo
Another crucial thing when contacting the Ibiza cannabis clubs is that you ask if you can request an invitation for their membership. Do not by any means start a conversation about smoking cannabis, or buying from them, because then the conversation will be shut down and you won’t get the chance to join them. Be polite and express real interest in becoming their member only and be ready to be asked for identification because they want their members to be kept in an active database for security.
