This is how we do Cannabis education

The Amsterdam Cannabis College offers advice on the safe use of recreational and medicinal cannabis since 1998. We offer beginner and advanced courses, free how-to tutorials, cannabinoids testing, and B2B services.

We test your cannabis

Advanced cannabinoids testing service

With so many different cannabis products available today it can be quite difficult selecting the right one to guarantee the preferred effect, be it medicinal or recreational. How strong is this brownie? Does this weed contain CBD? These are questions that were normally answered by consuming in a game of trial and error often resulting in a mix of good and bad experiences.

Online knowledge base

Cannabis Information

Finding trustworthy, well-sourced information is a difficult and energy-intensive process. The Amsterdam Cannabis College has been collating sources for the last decades in order to facilitate your research into Cannabis.

The Amsterdam Cannabis College has been educating since 1998.

In 1997, philanthropic Dutchman Henk Poncin and a few members of a group known as the “Green Prisoners Release” created a public information centre devoted to all the beneficial aspects of the beautiful Cannabis sativa L. plant. After a year of hard work and renovation, the new information centre and its flourishing organic cannabis garden were housed in a monument-status canal house in the heart of Amsterdam.
