Latest Submissions from Cannabis Dispensaries from Phuket Thailand

 Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Thailand but the police in Phuket Island is fairly corrupt.

It wouldnt be advisable not to smoke in public or in dodgey back streets, but smoking on the beach or hotel balcony should be kept discrete.

Another reporter added: “You definitely DO NOT want to get caught with weed in Thailand. The cops love to give you a hard time, and like most Thais, they love the smell of Farang money.”

Law Enforcement: Law enforcement generally corrupt, can be bought off for around 20,000B if you run into trouble, such as, possession, smoking in public, and getting narc’d out.

Another reporter added: “Stay the hell away from them. Be polite and smile a lot :)”

Where to Buy Marijuana in Phuket Island: If you are in Phuket Island, for a consistent score, head to Patong Beach where there are jetski rentals and parasailing. Be cool and ask the guys renting out the equipment to hook you up.

A recent tip we got is: “Patong Soi Eric the Regee beer bar”. If you’re there – you surely know what that means…

Another one from patong bay: “Not from people who wrap their pot in tons of plastic and burn the edges.

It will be a very little chance that it really is marijuana.

Look for the mid 20s people who work on the beach.”

Another reporter added: “Taxi drivers and tuk tuk drivers are the way to go. I recommend renting a cab for several hours.”

Phuket Island Marijuana Prices: An expensive 3000B for about 4-5 grams of shitty brick weed. But it’s good if you’re bud-starved.

another reporter added; “300Tb = 1.5g of thai stick. THC about 6 – 12 %”

Another reporter informed us of “1000TB for 10 grams”

and also: “I paid 1000 baht for about 5-7 grams of compressed outdoor sativa. It was absolutely seedless and plenty potent. It comes from the north of Thailand from what I hear. The guys who got it for me threw in a pack of Rizla Blues, and I rolled up a 3 gram spliff for us (of THEIR bud). I got reallllly high, and they complimented my rolling skills. :)”

Brands: Thai Stick ia the most normal type of weed in Phuket.

You should also be able to find low quality hash or as one reported Nepalese Temple Balls.

Sinsemilla Thai outdoor ganja. Good stuff!

City Report:

before embarkin i thought id have no pot during the whole trip cuz ive heard bad rumours about se asia and drugs. but once i got to phuket, thailand, i thought i should give gettin it a try. so i asked around – mostly vendors on the street. and within a few minutes i was heading to a locals house on the back of a scooter. we got to his gaff which was in pretty poor and run down shanty town. i walked with him into his house and imeadiately smelled pot. i found 3 people sittin on the floor toking on a massive bamboo hole. they greeted me with a lot of friendliness. i sat myself down on the floor and was offered the bong which i toked for a while. another of the guys started emptying out a cig and making a secret agent which he then gave to me 😀 after a while i was offered a ridiculous amount of brick weed (about 2 grams) for an exp ensive 1000 bath (about 20 us dollars). the next day i thought id try again so i asked some blokes renting out jetskis on the beach. one of them went to get another guy and then came back with a bag of thai stick with about 5 grams in it for only 300 bath – 6 euros/dollars!! this stuff also tasted great. after having smoked it i tried again and a this time a diff jetski renter took me to his house and gave me some more yummy thai stick. this time i got about 5 grams for 500 bath. so..

i cant be complaining.



Thailand’s Cannabis Regulation in 2022

Thailand Cannabis Regulation in 2022

“Cannabis” is recognized by many health professionals and the locals in Thailand as a medicinal plant with a high potential for therapeutic use and has a long history in the Thai traditional medicine practice. However, the enactment of the Narcotics Act in 1979 classified cannabis as a type of narcotic plant, and hence, its usage was prohibited by law. 

In 2019, the Thai government began to unlock certain regulations allowing cannabis to be used for health and medical purposes under restrictions. Thailand is the first amongst its neighboring countries in Southeast Asia where the government promotes and legalizes the medical usage of cannabis. The main objectives are for people to safely utilize medical-related cannabis inventions and to reduce illegal cultivation and commercialization of the plant. It is expected to also help boost the Thai economy. Though, this idea stirred a debate within Thailand’s somewhat conservative society. 

While the amended Narcotics Act in 2019 legalized the usage of cannabis and hemp in the medical space and for research and development purposes to a certain extent, both types of plants were listed under category 5 of narcotic substances, meaning, many limitations are still in place. 

The removal of particular parts of cannabis from the controlled narcotic

On December 13, 2020, a Government Gazette was published stating that specific parts of cannabis and extracts were delisted from category 5 of the Narcotics Act. 

These include:

  1. Fiber, stalk, stem, root, bark
  2. Leaf (without flowers and inflorescence)
  3. Extracts with cannabidiol (CBD) as an ingredient with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) not exceeding 0.2% of the weight
  4. Residue or waste from cannabis extract with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) not exceeding 0.2% of the weight

Parts and extracts of hemp as well as other derivatives were also released from the controlled list.

Despite this progress and effort by the Health Ministry, the usage of cannabis was not prevalent due to complex legal barriers and the fact that not all parts of the plant can be used or commercialized legally.

Licenses to produce, import, export, dispose or possess cannabis

The Government Gazette’s publication on November 26, 2021, declared the regulation on requesting for the license to produce, import, export, dispose or possess narcotic substance category 5, particularly “cannabis”. 

Those eligible to request for the grant of license according to the ministerial regulation are as follow:

  1. In case an applicant is an individual, the applicant must:
    1. Hold a Thai citizenship
    2. Not be less than 20 years of age
    3. Have a resident in Thailand
    4. Not be a person of unsound mind, incompetent or quasi-incompetent
    5. Not be bankrupt
    6. Not be a person whose license issued under the narcotic law, or the psychotropic substances law is being suspended or revoked
    7. Not be sentenced by final judgment as being guilty of an offense under narcotic law, psychotropic substances law, prevention of volatile substance abuse law, or the law on measures for the suppression of offenders in an offense related to narcotics
  2. In case an applicant is a juristic person, the applicant must:
    1. Be registered under Thai law
    2. Possess the qualifications under 1) f. and g.
    3. Have a representative or a person with authority to act on behalf of the juristic person with qualifications under 1)
    4. Directors, shareholders, or at least two-thirds of the shareholders must be persons of Thai nationality
    5. Have an office in Thailand
  1. In case an applicant is a community enterprise that is not a juristic person, the representative authorized to undertake the activities must possess qualifications under 1.
  2. In case an applicant is a state agency, the agency’s objectives must be related to the production, import, export, disposition, or possession of cannabis according to its missions stated in this ministerial regulation. 

This implies that foreigners are not yet allowed to produce, import, export, dispose or possess cannabis in Thailand. In line with the amended Narcotics Act published in 2019, only Thai citizens or juristic persons under Thai law will be able to participate in these activities for the first 5 years after the enforcement of the Act in February 2019. 

The complete legalization of cannabis in 2022

On December 11, 2021, Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced in the launching event of cannabis model city in Nakorn Phanom province that ‘all parts’ of the cannabis are no longer listed under narcotic substance based on the new Narcotics Code, effective December 9, 2021.

Anutin addressed the Health Ministry’s policy to promote the use of medicinal herbs consisting of cannabis, hemp, and Kratom by appointing the Department of Thai Traditional and Complementary Medicine to invent new policies to increase cannabis product value and create more jobs for people growing the herb and more income for manufacturers. This will allow Thai people better access to the products with more options to receive medical treatment. The push for this policy paved the way for hospitals and clinics all over the country to offer complimentary treatments using cannabis. In the meantime, the Health Ministry is researching and innovating new health-related products by making use of these medicinal herbs that will help improve the health of Thai people. 

The Health Ministry has been urging related parties to legally facilitate the usage and commercialization of cannabis and hemp by removing the herbs from category 5 of controlled narcotics. This implies that all parts of cannabis including root, stem, stalk, leaf, flower bud, inflorescence, and seeds will no longer be listed as narcotic substances. Only cannabis extract with THC over 0.2% will remain on the list. In addition, the process to request a license to grow the plant will be simplified which will benefit farmers or community enterprises who are interested in this business to generate more income. 

As for the next step, the Health Ministry will officially announce the new list of controlled narcotics and other related regulations. As a result, products made of cannabis oil or extracts, such as soap, cosmetics, and supplements with THC lower than 0.2% can be used at will.

The cannabis regulation in Thailand has come a long way, but it is still evolving with new measures to be declared and specifics to be clarified. For those interested in entering Thailand’s cannabis business scene, it is recommended to keep abreast with new developments and seek legal advice for professional guidance through the complexities of the regulation
