Marijuana & Cannabis Clinics in Thailand

Marijuana & Cannabis Clinics in Thailand

Monday 11th May 2019 marked the opening of Thailand’s first two full-time clinics dispensing cannabis oil for medical treatment. The step reflects the government’s intent to promote licensed use of marijuana products to relieve the symptoms of a range of ailments.

A cannabis flagship clinic under the management of Public Health Management handed over free cannabis oil to almost 400 patients in a suburb of Bangkok.

Eyeing the economic potential of cannabis, Thailand’s old harsh anti-drug laws are given way to new laws that permit to consume cannabis to treat medical conditions.

The Thai government seems all set to realize the economic potential of the cannabis. According to one estimate, Asia’s medical cannabis market is going to swell to US $5.8 billion by 2024.

These two full-time clinics are on the top of around 25 clinics already operating on part-time basis since the approval of new law that allows to use and production of medical cannabis.

As a part of the planned nationwide network of marijuana clinics, two more clinics would start working if the results are promising. With more clinics in greater Bangkok, the government has promised it would allow patients to make appointments using a specialized smartphone app. The policy of marijuana liberalization is likely to benefit all those who before were using expensive illegal marijuana from underground suppliers.

Legalization has made it possible for patients with different health conditions to get easy access to medical marijuana through cannabis clinics. By lessening their symptoms, medical marijuana can play an important role in improving their quality of life.

Approved medical conditions

With governments plans to strongly regulate cannabis consumption and promote licensed marijuana, it has stipulated a formal procedure that enables patients to access medical marijuana. First, it is important to know that there are certain conditions for which patients can seek medical marijuana. Following is the list of approved medical conditions for which patients can get medical marijuana.Addiction withdrawal symptoms
Alzheimer’s disease
Bone fractures
Cerebral palsy (children)
Cirrhosis of liver
Crohn’s disease
Demyelinating disease
Hypertension (High blood pressure)
Menstrual cramp
Opiate addiction
Parkinson’s disease
PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Reaction stress
Tourette’s syndrome
Prescription of medical cannabis

Since medical marijuana’s legalization, the Thai government is collaborating with the ministry of health to ensure that all the distribution of the drug goes through the licensed hospitals and cannabis clinics.

By promoting medical marijuana to help address several health ailments, the government also seems concerned about the potential abuse of the drug. The restricted liberalization policy of the Thai government is based on the conviction that the drug should only be used to seek relief, not pleasure. Particularly, the population under the age of 18, who are the most vulnerable age group to potentially abuse the drug.

As a part of the drug control to prevent its potential abuse, the government specified that patients could get and carry on person medical marijuana only on the prescription of a medical practitioner.

Any consumption in violation of national laws carries both jail as well as financial penalties. So, it is important to get a prescription from a registered medical practitioner before making the consumption of the drug.

first 10,000 medical cannabis oil bottles are distributed in August 2019 among patients with a prescription from a registered medical practitioner. The nations heavily regulated medical cannabis law is very tough on improper or recreational use of cannabis stipulating a jail penalty for up to five years.  Reports have emerged suggesting some clinics are involved in selling CBD to people looking for THC. These clinics claim to prescribe and distribute THC infused medical marijuana. Contrary to their claims, their products are hemp-derived CBD oil that contains just traces of THC.  THC and CBD are the two most commonly known compounds of the cannabis plant. Both are used for treating varying medical conditions and they leave a different impact on mind and body. Unlike CBD, THC is a psychoactive compound that creates feelings of high sensation.

Approved medical clinics in Thailand

Since the country rolled out its first legislation to legalize medical marijuana in 2018, Thai hospitals and universities are collaborating to produce FDA approved medical cannabis products. Such products can be obtained both from government hospitals and registered clinics.

THC and CBD are the two most commonly known compounds of the cannabis plant. Both are used for treating varying medical conditions and they leave a different impact on mind and body. Unlike CBD, THC is a psychoactive compound that creates feelings of high sensation.

Due to harsh laws governing medical marijuana, experts advise people to make consumption of both cannabinoids with caution. Patients should only use and possess two substances when they have a valid medical prescription from a doctor who is fully licensed by the FDA.

Approved hospitals that can prescribe medical cannabis

FDA has authorized all hospital operating under the cover of Public Health Ministry to prescribe medical cannabis to people with approved medical conditions.

The larger demand currently overwhelming the medical marijuana supply coming from Government Pharmaceutical Organizations, partner hospitals, and universities. With improved supply in the coming days, it is expected that more clinics and hospitals would start prescribing medical cannabis.

Possession of marijuana

Last year, Food and Drug Administration rolled out an amnesty program allowing people – Thais and expats alike – to legalize their stash provided they have an approved use for it. Under the new law, people using medical cannabis for approved uses can legalize it by producing a medical certificate verifying their eligible condition from a certified doctor, dentist, or Thai traditional medicine practitioner.
Required documents

Following a formal procedure, they can get registered with the FDA. According to the law, both nationals and foreigners need to prepare their documents that include the following.Identification documents (ID card or passport)
Medical certificates
Duly filled application form

Your Cannabis stock

Applicants must bring marijuana they have been using along with their application. If the stock is too large to move, then you need to bring its photos, and FDA will send their inspector at a pre-decided date to examine your stock.

Under the amnesty law, patients are allowed to keep the stock which deemed sufficient for 90 days of consumption.

If anyone is unable to come in person can authorize a representative on the form who can make the application and appear on the original applicant’s behalf.
Visit the Thai FDA office

With all the above-mentioned items, applicants need to visit the Food and Drug Administration’s central office in Bangkok. People living outside the capital can visit the provincial health office for the purpose.

Tourists entering the country must ensure can have medical marijuana in a form approved by the ministry of health. Ignoring the regulations might result in their stash is confiscated while entering the country.

Officials advise tourists to carry their medical prescription certificates with them to show to custom officers. Later, they are required to get it approved by the FDA to avoid persecution or get their seized stock back.

After duly filling a form declaring the amount of marijuana in their possession, the tourists can visit FDA or public health office. There they need to preset their passport along with air tickets as proof of traveling, copy of their medical prescription and prescribing doctor’s license.

To the hassle of tourists, none of these forms are in English. However, foreigners can get information from two dedicated medical cannabis phone lines.

The visitors can get information in English by dialing 1556, Ext. 3 from an FDA operated helpline. Another run by the Narcotics Control Board can be reached at 1386, Ext. 3 during regular government office working hours.

Cannabis Law in Thailand: A Guide to Growing & Smoking Marijuana


Cannabis Law in Thailand: A Guide to Growing & Smoking Marijuana

Thailand's Marijuana laws have evolved dramatically in recent times. What was once considered an illegal drug, unsafe for society, is now legal, mostly.

Thailand approved the decriminalization of cannabis, agreeing that the Health Ministry drop cannabis from its list of controlled drugs.

Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul signed an announcement removing the drug from Category 5 of the country’s list of narcotics, which is now in effect.

Previously regulated under the Narcotics Act, cannabis, or ganja  (กัญชา – kancha), as it is known in Thailand, can be grown and sold and consumed.

There's still some uncertainty surrounding public use and how much can be grown. But from the buzz seen around the nation, it seems that cannabis is now fully open for personal and commercial use.

To help clarify some of the finer print, here's the answers to a number of common questions.

Is Marijuana Legal in Thailand?

Yes, but with some regulation.

It is legal to grow cannabis, but to do so you need permission.

Home growers must first tell the government via a website or smartphone app. Thus far, nearly 750,000 applications have been received from key growers.

Industrial and commercial marijuana growers must obtain a license from the Food and Drug Authority.

Cannabis can be used by restaurants. But the leaves and roots used in cooking must be supplied by FDA certified producers and the THC level must be less than 0.2%

You can also buy cookies and teas and other snacks in some stores, all infused with the sacred plant.

However, the over-arching rule in the consumption of cannabis is that the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) content must be less than 0.2%.

THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the feeling of being “stoned”.

This means that the products aren't very strong, and certainly not on a par with a hash brownie from an Amsterdam cafe.

That said, people don't appear to be sticking to that rule, and this is where the confusion lies. For example, the Highland Café in Bangkok is already selling buds over the counter, which look pretty potent to me!

Can I Smoke Cannabis in Thailand?

Yes, but smoking in public can still be considered a public nuisance, so it's important to remember this if Somchai offers you a joint at a party.

Those caught smoking in public being a “nuisance” can be subject to fines of up to 25,000 baht ($723) and prison terms of up to three months.

This seems a little contradictory, though, considering Thailand just released 3,000 prisoners previously convicted of cannabis offenses, and is set to release more.

Despite politicians claiming there are these restrictions,  it appears there will be no effort to police what people can grow and smoke at home, aside from registering with the government and declaring it is for medical purposes.

If Marijuana is Not Illegal, How Can You Be Arrested for Smoking?

Good question, and this is currently unclear. Those who are familiar with the visa system in Thailand will know that this is how things work here.

When a new law is introduced it takes a while to iron out all of the areas overlooked in the development process and clarify what's allowed and what isn't, and why!

My advice, as a foreign national, is to let Thai people pave the way first. Sit back for a few months and wait for things to become clearer. Smoke at home, indoors for now.

What's the Punishment if You're Caught Smoking or Growing Without Permission?

As far as I know the following legal guidelines still apply, but whether they will be amended or enforced is unclear at this point.

  • Production, importation or exportation: 2-15 years imprisonment and a fine of 200,000 – 1,500,000 Baht
  • Disposal or possession for the purpose of disposal: 2-10 years imprisonment or a fine of 40,000 – 200,000 Baht or both
  • Quantity over 10 kilograms: Penalty is increased to a maximum of 15 years and a fine of 200,000 – 1,500,000 Baht
  • Possession: Imprisonment not exceeding 5 years and or a fine not exceeding 100,000 Baht or both
  • Consumption: Imprisonment not exceeding 1 year and a fine of 100,000 – 1,000,000

Can I Get Prescription Cannabis in Thailand?

Yes. But note that the strength of medical cannabis in Thailand may be much weaker than you are used to back home in California or Amsterdam.

This has been one of the major complaints from those suffering with long-term illness who have historically relied on a blackmarket supply.

Users have been so disappointed with the strength of medical cannabis that many have returned to the blackmarket to get a more potent supply.

This was recently highlighted in a Vice documentary (see below).

Is There Going to Be a Cannabis Sandbox?

This has been proposed but just how seriously is not clear.

Supposedly there will be an area of Thailand designated to ganja enthusiasts.

You'll be able to spend your holiday smoking, eating, and drinking cannabis-based products until your heart's content. Whether you'll actually get stoned or not is a different matter, because all the product will need to be under 0.2% THC.

It would certainly be a novelty feeling, but I doubt it will rival the cafes of Amsterdam. I don't think it will happen, certainly not this year anyway.

In Summary

Thailand is the most progressive country in the region when it comes to cannabis growth and consumption, but you might want to wait a while before you walk down the street with a big doobie hanging out your mouth and smile at the local bobby.

Do expect to see cafes popping up, and pretty much every dish being advertised with cannabis as a special ingredient.

Will the 0.2% THC be policed? I doubt it. It would waste a lot of police time. Though it could be a good tea-money maker for the BIB.

Most travelers will just do what they've always done: pop along to one of the bars on Phi Phi or Koh Phangan and pick up a sealer bag of the good stuff and smoke away, while the bar pays the local police to turn a blind eye.

The residents of Pattaya can get their dose of cannabis following the formal procedure set out by the government. If you are looking to get your hands-on cannabis in Pattaya, you need to be aware of a few things. Only get your medicine from offical cannabis clinic in Pattaya.

First, you can get cannabis only for treatment, it is prohibited to use marijuana to seek pleasure. Second, your eligibility depends upon the extent you fulfill the requirements stipulated in the formal cannabis acquisition process. Third, even if you are entitled to consume cannabis under the Thai government’s laws, any possession or consumption of illegal cannabis may leave you to end up in jail or face a financial penalty.

To get pass the medical cannabis eligibility requirements, your medical condition needs to fall in a list of approved medical conditions. All patients suffering from medical conditions listed in the approved medical conditions such as cancer, migraine etc., can seek medical marijuana to treat their symptoms.

All the patients who fulfill the first condition need to see a qualified physician. The physician would certify their medical condition and prescribe medical marijuana for the treatment of their symptoms.

Having a doctor’s certificate, patients need to visit one of the designated clinics located in Pattaya. The cannabis clinic is the final step in this heavily regulated cannabis acquisition process.

Currently, there is only one cannabis clinic which dispenses medical cannabis to meet the needs of patients looking to use cannabis as remedy against their health conditions.

The location and contact details of the Origene Clinic Pattaya is listed below.

Origene Clinic Pattaya, 8/114 Moo 6 Sukhumvit Road, Muang Pattaya, Amphoe Bang Lamung, Tel: 0659989449, Email: info@orgeneclinic.com

Knowledge of the local cannabis laws

For smooth, safe, and stress-free cannabis consumption, marijuana enthusiasts need to be aware of local laws governing the use of the plant. Given the harsh anti-drug past, the Thai government regulates medical marijuana consumption to avoid any potential misuse.

The basic premise that shapes the outlook of marijuana consumption laws stems from the government’s conviction; cannabis is a just medical remedy, not a substance to seek pleasure. Moreover, the laws reflect the intent and desire of the regulators whereby they want eligible people to only use cannabis available through legal channels.

Reflecting authorities’ strong regulatory intent, new Narcotics Bill stipulates any consumption in violation of the provisions of this law may result in a one-year jail term or a financial penalty of 20,000 baht (USD$ 600).

Tourists visiting Pattaya

Any of the tourists visiting Pattaya also require complying with the provisions of Narcotics Bill. They can have marijuana only in the form approved by the Ministry of Health. Any violation may see their stashes are being confiscated.

Upon arrival into the country, foreigners are advised to get their cannabis approved following FDA set procedure. Tourists just like Thai nationals are required to show their medical certificates. Therefore, officials suggest tourists should carry their medical certificates with them and show them to the customs officers upon their arrival in the country.

Any departure from the laws of the land regarding cannabis possession or consumption may lead foreigners to face fines and persecutions. The fact that Thailand is the first far east nation to legalize the cannabis should not send you under the illusion that cannabis possession and consumption in the country is a matter of personal choice.

Cannabis legalization is heavily regulated in the country. In the best interest of foreigners visiting the Pattaya, they should ensure they are duly following the laws governing the acquisition and usage of cannabis.



Cannabis is commonly referred to as marijuana and is a psychoactive drug that can be used for medical or recreational purposes. In Thailand, cannabis has been cultivated for centuries and is widely available. Cannabis farming in Thailand is often done in small scale operations, with farmers growing the plant for personal use or to sell to others. Cannabis plants typically contains THC, the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” associated with marijuana use. Cannabis farming in Thailand is not regulated by the government and there are no laws that prohibit its cultivation. However, possession and consumption of cannabis is illegal in Thailand and can result in stiff penalties, including imprisonment. Despite the legal risks, many people in Thailand continue to grow and use cannabis.
Climatic and Soil Conditions

Cannabis plants require a warm, humid climate with plenty of sunlight to thrive. Thailand’s tropical climate is ideal for growing cannabis, and the plant can be found growing wild in many parts of the country. The temperature in Thailand rarely falls below 20 degrees Celsius, making it possible to grow cannabis year-round.

The rainfall requirement for cannabis is about 100-150 cm per year.

The optimum pH range for cannabis is between 6 and 7.

Cannabis plants can be grown in a variety of soil types, but loamy soils with good drainage are best. Cannabis plants have a deep taproot system and require fertile soils that are high in organic matter.

Thai farmers typically grow cannabis in small plots of land using traditional farming methods. Cannabis plants are often grown mixed with other crops, such as rice, maize, or peanuts. This type of mixed cultivation is known as “taungya” and is common in Thailand.
How to Plant Cannabis

Cannabis is a beautiful and versatile plant that has many uses. It can be planted indoors or outdoors, in soil or hydroponically, and it can even be grown in a container. Whether you are growing cannabis for personal use or for commercial purposes, there are some basic steps you need to follow to ensure a successful crop.

For indoor growing, it is recommended to space each cannabis plant about 2 feet apart. This allows the plants room to grow and prevents them from overcrowding each other. If you are growing outdoors, you will need to space the plants depending on the size of the area you have available. The general rule of thumb is to space each plant about 6-8 inches apart.
Choosing the Right Container

If you are growing cannabis in a container, it is important to choose the right size and type of container. Cannabis plants can grow quite large, so you will need a pot that is at least 12 inches in diameter. Be sure to choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent the roots from becoming waterlogged.

You can also grow cannabis in hydroponic systems. These systems use a growing medium other than soil, such as sand, gravel, or rock wool. Hydroponic systems are often used by commercial growers because they allow for faster growth and bigger yields.
Getting the Right Light

Cannabis plants need a lot of light to grow properly. If you are growing indoors, you will need to provide your plants with artificial light. The best type of artificial light for cannabis is high-intensity discharge (HID) light, such as metal halide (MH) or high-pressure sodium (HPS). These lights emit a lot of heat, so be sure to use a fan to ventilate your grow room and prevent the plants from getting too hot.

If you are growing outdoors, your plants will need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. If you live in an area with long summer days, you can supplement your plants with artificial light to give them even more light.
Watering Your Plants

Cannabis plants need to be watered regularly to stay healthy. The amount of water your plants need will depend on the type of soil you are using, the size of the pot, and the climate you are growing in. In general, cannabis plants need about 1-2 inches of water per week. Be sure to check the soil before watering to make sure it is dry. Overwatering can be just as harmful to your plants as not watering them enough.
Fertilizing Your Plants

The cannabis plant is a heavy feeder and will need to be fertilized regularly to produce a good yield. There are many different types of fertilizer available, so it is important to choose one that is specifically designed for cannabis plants. Fertilizers typically come in two forms: liquid and solid. Solid fertilizers are applied to the soil, while liquid fertilizers are mixed with water and applied to the plants.

It is important to fertilize your plants regularly, but be sure not to overdo it. Too much fertilizer can burn the roots and damage your plants. Start with a low dose of fertilizer and increase it gradually as the plants grow.

Breeding Control in Cannabis Farming

When it comes to breeding cannabis, there are a few key things that farmers need to keep in mind in order to produce the best possible crop. First and foremost, it is important to maintain a good level of control over the breeding process. This means keeping track of which plants are being used for breeding, as well as ensuring that only the healthiest and most viable plants are used in the process.

Another important aspect of breeding control is maintaining a good level of genetic diversity. This is important because it helps to ensure that the plants are able to adapt and survive in a variety of different conditions. By having a greater degree of genetic diversity, farmers can be sure that their plants will be better equipped to deal with whatever challenges they may face.

Also, it is also important to consider the end goal of the breeding process. This means thinking about what traits you want to see in the final product. By having a clear idea of what you are hoping to achieve, you can be sure that your breeding efforts are more likely to be successful.
Pollination Control

One of the most important aspects of breeding cannabis is controlling the pollination process. This means ensuring that only the desired plants are pollinated, and that unwanted pollen does not come into contact with the plants. There are a few different ways to achieve this, but one of the most common is to use physical barriers such as screens or bags.

Another method of pollination control is to use chemicals. This involves applying a chemical treatment to the plants that prevents pollen from adhering to them. This can be an effective way to prevent unwanted pollination, but it is important to use the right products and to follow the instructions carefully to avoid damaging the plants.

In some cases, it may also be necessary to hand-pollinate the plants. This is a more time-consuming process, but it allows for greater control over which plants are pollinated.
Selective Breeding

Once the pollination process has been controlled, the next step is to select the desired plants for breeding. This involves choosing plants that have the desired traits and then breeding them together. The process of selective breeding can be used to create new strains of cannabis or to improve existing ones.

It is important to select the right plants for breeding, as this will determine the final outcome of the process. This means considering factors such as the desired traits, as well as the plant’s overall health and vigor.

Once the desired plants have been selected, the next step is to bring them together for breeding. This can be done by either growing the plants together in the same space or by exchanging pollen between them.

The process of selective breeding can be time-consuming, but it is an important part of creating new and improved strains of cannabis. By carefully selecting the right plants and then breeding them together, farmers can create strains that have the desired traits and that are more likely to be successful in a variety of different conditions.
Cannabis Seed production

The final step in the breeding process is to produce seeds from the desired plants. This involves carefully harvesting the pollen from the plants and then using it to fertilize the female plants. The process of seed production can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, but it is essential for creating new strains of cannabis.

Once the seeds have been produced, they can be used to grow new plants or to breed further generations of plants. The seeds can also be sold to other farmers or cannabis growers, who can then use them to grow their own crops.

Seed production is a vital part of the breeding process, as it allows farmers to create new strains of cannabis and to improve existing ones. By carefully selecting the right plants and then producing seeds from them, farmers can create strains that have the desired traits and that are more likely to be successful in a variety of different conditions.

Fiber Production in Cannabis Production

The time it takes for a plant to mature can vary depending on the strain, but most cannabis plants will be ready to harvest within 10-12 weeks from planting. The length of time it takes for a plant to mature can be affected by a number of factors, including the amount of light and nutrients it receives, as well as the temperature and humidity levels in the grow room.

Once the plants have reached maturity, they can be harvested and the fiber can be extracted from the stems. The process of fiber extraction can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, but it is essential for creating high-quality cannabis products. There are a number of methods that can be used to extract the fiber from the plants.Biological Pooling Method

The biological pooling method is the most common method of fiber extraction. This involves using a solution of water and enzymes to break down the plant material and release the fibers. The process of extracting the fiber using this method can be time-consuming, but it is often the best option for creating high-quality cannabis products.Chemical Extraction Method

The chemical extraction method is another common method of fiber extraction. This involves using a solvent, such as ethanol, to extract the fiber from the plant material. The process of extracting the fiber using this method can be time-consuming, but it is often the best option for creating high-quality cannabis products.

iii. Mechanical Extraction Method

The mechanical extraction method is the most common method of fiber extraction. This involves using a machine to strip the fiber from the plant material. The process of extracting the fiber using this method can be time-consuming, but it is often the best option for creating high-quality cannabis products.

Once the fiber has been extracted, it can be used to create a variety of different products, including rope, fabric, paper, and insulation. The fiber can also be used to make a number of other products, such as biofuels and construction materials.

Other Cannabis Maintenance Activities
Pest Control

Cannabis plants are susceptible to a variety of different pests, including aphids, whiteflies, and spider mites. These pests can cause serious damage to the plants, and they can also transmit diseases. To control these pests, farmers need to use a variety of different methods, including chemical pesticides, biological controls, and physical barriers.
Weed Control

Weeds are a common problem in cannabis cultivation, as they can compete with the plants for resources, including water and nutrients. To control weeds, farmers need to use a variety of different methods, including chemical herbicides, mechanical cultivation, and mulching.

Cannabis plants need to be watered regularly to maintain healthy growth. The amount of water that a plant needs depends on a number of factors, including the type of plant, the stage of growth, and the climate. In general, cannabis plants need to be watered every day during the vegetative stage and every other day during the flowering stage.

Cannabis farm Thailand is a great way to get into the cannabis business. The country has a tropical climate that is ideal for growing cannabis. Additionally, the government is supportive of the industry and there is a growing demand for cannabis products. If you are interested in starting a cannabis farm in Thailand, follow the steps outlined in this guide. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can be on your way to success.

Chiang Mai is a capital of the namesake province in one of the most northerly territories of Thailand. It is renowned for the laid-back attitude of both locals and expats, where very little is able to disturb the sense of peace. Chiang Mai is somewhat different from the rest of Thailand and will attract, amongst other types, people who have seen the beauty of the beaches and experienced the edge of Bangkok.

The food in the city is simply incredible and definitely a reason to visit. Western food, Asian-inspired dishes and scrumptious street grub are here in abundance. Attracting an array of travellers from different income brackets, Chiang Mai offers accommodation and dining opportunities of varying prices. The influence of the Western world is unmistakable, and yet somehow very non-intrusive and the subtly fusion of both Asian and International blend harmoniously.

There are also many unique outdoor activities in the area. The Elephant Jungle Sanctuary will have you writing home about how you bathed an elephant, the birds at Doi Inthanon National Park will have you snapping shots like a member of the paparazzi, and the waterfalls will leave your mouth on the floor. If you’re lucky enough to be in Thailand around April, be sure to in be in Chiang Mai for Songkran – the world’s biggest street waterfight!

3. Ayutthaya

Ayutthaya is a little slice of heaven for history buffs and those who appreciate culture and tradition. Beautiful monasteries, dilapidated temples and towering statues dot the countryside. The ruins are amongst the most impressive in the world, with a fascinating history and with equally entertaining anecdotes about their ontology. Get into Ayutthaya via a trip up the Chao Phraya River from Bangkok and gaze at the rough, but unjaded beauty of the riverside houses. Alternatively, Ayutthaya is only about an hour north of Bangkok if you make the journey in a car.

Among the most alluring of the attractions is Wat Phra Mahthat. The famous shot of Buddha’s head nestled in between the roots of a tree can be captured here. No Instagram filter needed. There are so many highlights in this neck of the woods, many of which will appeal to different people for different reasons. You’ll need a few things to get the most out of the trip - several days to visit all the temples and ruins, a good camera, and an appreciation for things greater than the sum of their parts.

4. Phuket

Phuket Patong Beach

Ah, the world-famous Phuket. While it is not the quaint place it once was, Phuket has developed into something that invites travellers for a whole new reason. It is the shining, bustling, bucket-list island of Thailand. The sounds, smells, and sights of Phuket are enough to leave the first-time traveller with a slightly bewildered, albeit very entertained look on their face.

As such, the island is best enjoyed by younger travellers, and especially those with a tolerance for a high level of stimulation. “Bangla Road, this Friday night, Muay Thai Boxing!” echoes from loud speakers through the teeming streets and there is little peace in Phuket.

Days should be spent discovering Old Phuket Town, exploring the streets and visiting the ever popular Kata Beach. Great day trips can be organised to the surrounding islands, of which, Koh Phi Phi and James Bond Island are amongst the most picturesque!

5. Krabi

Krabi is the most archetypal destination of all Thailand holiday getaways. The towering limestone cliffs, the surreal beaches, the extensive jungle and hidden caves, the Emerald Lagoon, the Hot Water Springs. The list really does just go on and on. And on. It sits on the West coast of Thailand, near the southern border. It is a few hours from Phuket, regardless of which transport mode you use.

Krabi is a place for every kind of traveller. The adventurous type, beach-goers, the luxury seeker and the weary backpacker will all find something special here. The province is home to the incredible peninsular of Railay, where you can rock-climb limestone karsts and jump enthusiastically into the sea, or just lie on your back, running the impossibly fine squeaky sand through your hands. It is home to a world-class restaurant inside a cave as well as beach-stands selling THB 60 baguettes.

6. Koh Samui

Koh Samui is the most populated and Westernised of the islands in the Gulf. Getting to the island, and into the Western idea of island life, is easy – a short two-hour ferry away from the mainland is all it takes. Not too dissimilar from Phuket, the beaches are lined with resorts, the souvenir shops are packed with borderline inappropriate paraphernalia, the bars packed with foreigners indulging in beer and cocktail specials, and the restaurants are loaded with attempts at popular Western dishes.

If you’re the kind of traveller who doesn’t enjoy the bug bites, sand in your pants, sometimes dodgy local food, and exploring unidentified local spots, then the amalgamation of west and east, of beach umbrellas and sea views, will have you feeling right at home.

7. Koh Phangan

The island is just a few hour ferry from the Donsak Pier in Suratthani, but feels like an absolute world apart. It is a wonderful collection of natural attractions and bright neon lights advertising cheap beer and afternoon massages. It is strangely good at satisfying the needs of completely different kinds of travellers. Barefoot hippies, bandana-wearing nature enthusiasts, and slick haired party folk with unbuttoned neon-shirts, all find happiness here. Foodies, and especially those who have been travelling the more rural parts of the country are in for a tummy swelling, belt-unbuckling, thank-goodness I’m wearing elastic pants, good time. Chinese, Western, Italian, and of course Thai restaurants are scattered all over the island.

Haad Rin is the location of the world famous Full-Moon Party. It is also the location of the Half-Moon Party. There are so many other parties, too. If you like the party, come party here. Haad Yuan is the more alternative, down-beat side of the island only accessible by a long-tail boat.

Be sure to visit Malibu beach for a unique experience, and Haad Seekantang for a classic, postcard beach. If you visit here at low-tide, there is an awesome sandbank a hundred metres out that you should have a seat and a drink on while the sun slowly dips.

8. Koh Tao

Koh Tao is a tiny island a few hours away from Suratthani. Getting there can be a little laborious with two ferries and a wait between them. Your best bet is to leave on an overnight direct ferry and try and catch some winks on the way. Koh Tao is an island for the adventurous and outdoorsy. Expect to be gallivanting from place to place trying to squeeze the beauty of the island through the tiny holes in your eyes. Bring sunscreen, a hat, and some energy bars. Explore the tiny, steep and winding roads into the depths of the jungle that end up at viewpoints not even on a map.

Koh Tao is the diving mecca of Thailand and there are chances to dive at some of the best spots in the world, beaches to spend your down-time at, and a thriving nightlife for when you’re rearing to go again.

9. Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi is best suited to nature enthusiasts. However, the incredible riverside resorts and restaurants also make this quite the destination for luxury-seeking tourists. Kanchanaburi is around 2 hours of car travel west of Bangkok, around 4 hours if you take public transport.

Erawan falls is easily the most unique series of waterfalls in the whole of Thailand. Its cerulean colour, the perfect composition of both cascading and slow-moving waters, and the luscious enveloping forest make this waterfall something to behold. A very similar waterfall, Huay Mae Khamin, is also well worth your time.

The Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum is a great spot for those looking to embrace the sombre reality of the Bridge River Kwai. Viewing the bridge itself, of course, is a must. Exploring the Burma Railway itself is something that goes hand-in-hand with these activities.

Dining options are also pretty fantastic round these parts. Grab some local fare and head on down to the riverside. Otherwise, hop on board a floating restaurant with your sailors legs and enjoy the high-end feast that awaits you.

10. Pattaya

Pattaya has the ability to satisfy the fluctuating impulses of toddlers, heavily pregnant women, and even people with minor personality disturbances. The city, a few hours south of Bangkok, engrosses the tourist with its multifaceted charm and almost impossible composition of attractions.

Walking street stands proud of the more reserved customs of the area, coming alive in the evening with flashing lights, thumping music, go-go bars, street-performances, and an array of street side food vendors. A near full assault on the senses.

Standing in stark contrast to this is the Sanctuary of Truth. After your activities of the night before, it is probably a good idea to visit the one-of-a-kind structure, an ode to philosophical truth and the folly of man in pursuing material wealth. Tiffany’s Cabaret Show promises a fantastic evening of fun for adults and parents alike, while the water parks will be fun for the whole family! An absolute must on the cultural list the Four Regions Floating Market – popularly referred to as the Pattaya Floating market. The market provides surreal exposure to an alternative way of life.

As if this level of diversity wasn’t enough, just an hour off the coast of the thriving city is the tranquil Koh Larn island. Organise a day trip to the beach and to the freshest seafood is town!
Why should you go to Thailand?

Ultimately, it is difficult trying to come up with reasons to not visit Thailand. Between the incredible beaches that have more coconuts than people, the busting streets of Bangkok, the iconic landscapes of the famous southern islands, and of course, the wonderful food, it’s high time you come to terms with your longing to visit and book the ticket!

50 Best Strains Of Weed

Choosing which strains of weed to try from the limitless varieties without contemplating the kinds of pot that could potentially be growing on other planets is enough to make some green cannabis consumers anxious or excited. 

It’s even quite common for really serious stoners to get a little depressed when they contemplate how no one will ever be able to smoke every single strain of wonderful weed in the universe.

We cross-referenced data from LeaflyWeedmapsHightimesComplex, and Weed Horn to bring you the ultimate list of our 53 favorite mouth-watering strains of marijuana. We hope that our guide will help make your quest to find your favorite strains of cannabis a little easier.

The 53 Best Weed Strains

We’re not ranking these according to any scale, so they’re in no particular order. Enjoy!

53: Dutch Cheese

Dutch Cheese is a little bit of a mystery in the cannabis community. Why? Because only one of its parents are known (Euforia). That makes Dutch Cheese one bastard of a strain. Sorry, Dutchy.

But don’t let its parental heritage dissuade you. Dutch Cheese is a cerebral high that will leave you feeling uplifted and euphoric. All of that wrapped in a sweet, fruit-flavored package that is sure to please.

52: Chernobyl

We love this strain because it smells like teen spirit. Just kidding. It’s even better than that — it smells like lime sherbet!

Chernobyl is a mix of Trainwreck, Trinity, and Jack The Ripper. Contrary to its “powerful” and “scary” name, Chernobyl is more about floating away on a happy, relaxed cloud than it is about watching the walls have a meltdown. That makes Chernobyl great for relieving stress and bad moods.

51: Chem Dog

Chem Dog can trace its roots back to the well-known strains Kush, Hash Plant, and Northern Lights. It offers very pungent, earthy diesel flavors and results in a relaxed, euphoric high with tinges of creativity floating on the periphery.

But like many of the strains on this list, Chem Dog should be approached with the caution it deserves. THC levels top out at 15-20% so it can kick you where it counts in no time flat and take you deep inside your head (for good or bad) on a very cerebral trip.

50: Death Star

Death Star Strain_50

To paraphrase a classic line, “That’s no moon. It’s a ganja strain!” Death Star shares its sativa and indica effects with its parents Sensi Star and Sour Diesel and offers a truly unique experience.

Though sometimes slow to take over, Death Star never fails to zap your cares and will transport you to a state of relaxed euphoria like none other. Like its parent strain, Sour Diesel, Death Star produces flavors akin to the pungent, earthy diesel we’ve all come to know and love.

The thick frosty leaves of the Death Star strain smoke very smooth and slow while, at the same time, delivering a heady indica punch for those who want to get stuck on their couch for a few hours.

49: Ghost Train Haze

Ghost Train Haze Strain_49

Bred from parents Ghost OG and Nevil’s Wreck, this strain measures in at 25% THC content and can serve as your express train to good times. Contrary to its name, Ghost Train Haze has a tendency to stimulate focus and creativity so you won’t be walking around in a daze (or haze)

Ghost Train Haze won’t scare you silly but it will knock your socks off with flavors reminiscent of sweet, earthy citrus. Delicious! All aboard the Ghost Train Haze express.

48: Red Dragon

Red Dragon Strain_48

Another potent strain that specializes in a heady sense of happiness, euphoria, and the seemingly-at-odds relaxation and excitement. That’s a mystical combination with an appropriately mystical name.

Legend has it that this strain got its name from the vivid red hairs that adorn the mature buds and give them a dragon-like appearance. I don’t know about all that but this is certainly an excellently powerful strain that will fly you to places you’ve never even imagined. 

Do you have what it takes to tame the Red Dragon? Regardless, it will be one hell of a ride!

47: Yoda OG

Yoda OG Strain_47

Yoda OG is one of the best-matched marijuana strains for a quality couch lock session. It’s combined mental and body indica buzz will soothe your senses as your mind unwinds and your body melts between the cushions. 

Any chronic pain or emotional stress will disappear in a pungent puff the moment you light up, making this the cannabis companion of choice for both recreational and medical marijuana users.

46: ChemDawg

ChemDawg Strain_46Source: AllBud.com

Chemdawg can trace its roots (again, pun intended) back to the well-known strains Kush, Hash Plant, and Northern Lights. It offers very pungent, earthy diesel flavors and results in a relaxed, euphoric high with tinges of creativity floating on the periphery.

But like many of the strains on this list, Chemdawg should be approached with the caution it deserves. THC levels top out at 15-20% so it can kick you where it counts in no time flat and take you deep inside your head (for good or bad) on a very cerebral trip.

45: Cherry OG

Cherry OG Strain_45Source: CannabisReports.com

The Cherry OG strain is the child of Cherry Thai, Afghani, and Lost Coast OG and is a 50/50 blend of indica and sativa that produces a pleasant 50/50 combination of mind and body high. You start with the heady high of sativa and end with a deep body relaxation that is a signature effect of indica.

True to its name, the first thing you’ll probably notice about this unique bud is that it is smaller and darker than most, and has a visibly reddish tone. It’s quite reminiscent of, well, what else? Cherries! Sometimes a name does really say it all.

44: Black Gorilla

Black Gorilla Strain_44

Black Gorilla is a hybrid of Gorilla Glue #4 (a potent strain in itself) and Bright Berry so you know it’s gotta be good. This is one of those names that I often question. 

It’s like they just picked a word out of a dictionary without giving it any thought. Aren’t most gorillas black? I certainly haven’t smoked enough weed that my answer would be no. 

So why name it that? Why not get creative and call it Green Gorilla? Nice use of consonance, don’t you think? Dibs on the name, by the way! Or maybe go the rhyming way with Vanilla Gorilla? 

Prosaic name aside, this is a nicely potent strain that will knock you on your ass like you’ve been hit by a black gorilla…oh, now I get it.

43: Kandy Kush

Kandy Kush Strain_43

Kandy Kush is a sweet-flavored hybrid (sativa/indica mix) that produces a distinct lemon scent when smoked. It’s become a favorite amongst medical users because of its potent high and strong pain-relief quality.

Results may vary but Kandy Kush is great for relieving stress, depression, lack of appetite, and insomnia. That means, if you’re using this on a recreational basis, that you’ll feel awesome (physically and mentally), have a good meal, and get a great night’s sleep. 

I’ll take that experience any day.

42: Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies

Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies Strain_42

Some weed strains have very strange names and you just know they were thought up while under the influence. Other strains have names that are both appropriate and descriptive and were likely thought up in a stroke of genius (also under the influence, of course).

Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies is certainly one of the latter. Forget about the 17-28% THC. Forget about the euphoria and relaxation it creates. This strain is named appropriately because—like the delicious cookies—you can just never get enough.

41: Fruity Pebbles

Fruity Pebbles Stain_41Source: Pinterest.com

The Fruity Pebbles strain is an excellent choice for the beginner and expert alike. It’s mild but powerful effects won’t have you bouncing off the walls or held captive by your couch, but it will take you to places you’ve never been before.

This strain traces its roots back to the likes of Tahoe Alien, Green Ribbon, and Granddaddy Purple. Thanks to these distinguished genetics, Fruity Pebbles is a versatile bud with plenty of beneficial effects—both recreational and medicinal—that can be used for a variety of intents and purposes. 

It’s well worth a quick try.

40: Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight is famous for its small, dense nugs that give off a distinct aroma of pepper, flowers, and pine. This indica-dominant hybrid has been described as producing “a hazy aura that engulfs the mind and body.” 

Other dominant effects include relaxation and euphoria which means that this uplifting strain was very aptly named.

39: Bettie Page

If you’re looking to stoke your creativity, Bettie Page may be just the thing for you. This 50/50 hybrid that tastes of berries and diesel will have you coming up with some of your best weed-fueled inspirations ever.

One cannaenthusiast described this high-THC strain as producing mellow euphoria that focuses itself in the cerebral space and encourages energy rather than lethargy. Sounds great to me!

38: Acapulco Gold

Acapulco Gold Strain_38Source: GrowingMarijuanaBlog.com

As the name suggests, Acapulco Gold originated in and around Acapulco, Mexico, although it’s becoming more and more difficult to find as grow operations move indoors. 

This sativa strain is redolent with sweet, earthy, and citrus flavors that propel you into a happy place faster than a real trip to Acapulco.

37: Satori

Satori Strain_37Source: BreedBay.co.uk

Satori is indica/sativa hybrid that brings on feelings of extreme bliss. The high has been described as clear and powerful and will certainly fly the most jaded cannabis consumer to new euphoric and psychotropic places.

36: Alien Abduction

Alien Abduction Strain_36Source: MedicalJane.com

Alien Abduction packs a high-THC punch which may be where the strain got its name. It’s easy to imagine the original consumer of this product being sure he was being, or at least had been, abducted by aliens.

Alien Abduction combines a righteous head buzz with a “Why is my head so heavy?” body high. Medical users rave about Alien Abduction’s appetite-stimulant and sleep-aid properties.

35: AK-47

AK-47 Strain_35Source: TheNug.com

Though AK-47 may sound like it might put you down for the count faster than you can say, “Let’s get baked,” it’s really one of the more cuddly and lovable strains available. 

The sweet, earthy, and woody aromas of this strain are the first thing you’ll notice, followed by a heady mix of energy, euphoria, and relaxation. This is a great choice if you want to function and have a good time rather float away into your own psychedelic world.

34: Brainwreck

Brainwreck Strain_34Source: Pinterest.com

Brainwreck is the love child of a threesome between the strains Trainwreck, Brain Child, and Brain. Its effects are exhilarating and cerebral, making it the smart choice for consumers looking to avoid fatigue. 

The nice thing about Brainwreck is that the mental effects last a lot longer than the physical effects.

33: Gravity

Gravity Strain_33Source: Notey.com

Gravity is an indica strain that is becoming well-known for its high CBD content. That CBD punch makes it a popular choice for the treatment of chronic pain and stress. 

Medical users like the fact that the Gravity strain can leave you relaxed but with energy to spare for normal activities.

32: Bordello

If you like sativa-like mental effects from an indica-dominant strain, you’ll love experiencing what Bordello has to offer. Users say this strain hits behind the eyes first and then spreads throughout the body.

The combination of euphoric and uplifting effects will have you wondering how you’ll ever manage to focus your brain again. 

It’s wise to clear your calendar and give your whole day over to Bordello just in case you can’t find your way out. Reminds me of this strain’s namesake.

31: Savant’s Grail

Savants Grail Strain_31Source: MedicalJane.com

Want to push your euphoria, arousal, focus, giggliness, and happiness off the charts? Try Savant’s Grail. 

This hybrid strain from Michigan took second place in the 2015 Michigan Cannabis Cup because of the unique combination of effects that knock the mind around while under its influence.

30: Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan Strain_30Source: Herb.co

As the late, great Carl Sagan once wrote, “The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.” 

The Carl Sagan strain can do that for you. Nuff said.

29: Bogart

The Bogart strain is reminiscent of earth and wood with subtle undertones of lemony goodness. Add in Bogart’s high THC content, and you’ve got a hybrid strain that is particularly useful for patients suffering from PTSD, nausea, stress, and chronic pain. 

Bogart is also a great choice for smokers with a well-developed cannabis tolerance.

28: Cloud 9

multi-color cloud 9 text on background of colorful skySource: 420101.com

One toke of the Cloud 9 strain and you’ll be…on cloud nine! Sorry, that comparison is mandatory in the Strain Writer’s Handbook. If I hadn’t made that terrible joke, I’d be subjected to eight hours of the movie Back To The Beach on repeat as punishment. 

Only the happy, giggly relaxation of the Cloud 9 strain could have gotten me through that hell on Earth.

27: Beastmode OG

Beastmode OG Strain_27Source: Herb.co

Want a powerful punch from your weed? Try the aptly named Beastmode OG. Named after NFL running back Marshawn Lynch, this strain mimics his explosive playing style. 

The nice balance of indica and sativa effects mean that you’ll experience a wonderful elevation in mood along with relief from stress and pain.

26: Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen strain on brown surface

You honestly can’t go wrong with any single strain of weed you choose as long as it was grown organically

It’s important to look up information on your indicas, sativas, and hybrids before you sample them in order to get a sense of what to expect from your weed in terms of its taste, texture, aroma, therapeutic and psychoactive effects. 

And also because learning stories about the breeding heritage of your herb is its own special recreational high!
