The moment cannabis was decriminalized this past Thursday, a number of dispensaries immediately began selling marijuana ranging from excellent Thai strains to imported insanity weed.
We’ve reported on a number of them, from Highland Cafe north of downtown in the Lat Phrao area, to The Dispensary near Sala Daeng. Here are the locations we have verified that cannabis can be purchased. While this is definitely not a complete list, we will add additional locations to it. Feel free to let us know about other venues out there, especially away from the downtown area, by dropping us a line
Here are all the locations in one handy map followed by details about each below:
Operated by Thailand’s premier legalization advocacy group – the same folks who put on the annual 420 Festival
– Highland Cafe offers a handful of strains starting at B450 a gram for a Sunset Sherbert indica all the way up to B700 for a gram of Sugarcane sativa. If that’s not enough, customers can also order 3.5 grams of any of the cafe’s strains starting at B1,400.
12/7 Lat Phrao Road. Open daily 4:20pm-midnight 087-330-8506

Founded by child actor-turned-weed cultivator Soranut “Beer” Masayavanich, Sukhumweed is a one-stop shop for all things green. You can buy a very decent domestic strain called Thai Loy for B250 per gram or one of their many imported strains. Minimum orders for imported bud are 3 grams to 3.5 grams, starting at B1,750. Not only that, gear ranging from bongs, rolling papers, pipes, and grinders are available.
Soi Sukhumvit 42 near Rama IV Road. Open daily 2pm to 9pm 063-928-1888
The Dispensary by Taratera

Selling buds grown from farms across the country, The Dispensary features multiple weed strains in jars on the counter and shelves that customers can take home to blaze. Prices at the temporary shop, founded by a man who got into cannabis to ease his dying father’s pain, range from B400-800. Rolling papers are available too.
1/4 Sala Daeng 1 Alley, Silom. Open Tue-Sun 11am-7pm, 063-979-8686.
This shop opened by Kitty Chopaka, formerly of Highland, sits under a hard-to-miss neon weed leaf sign and began selling cannabis Thursday. Buds range from B555 for Sunrise Sherbet to B888 for Gorilla Jamaica.
There is a catch however. Although the shop is open 10am to 10pm every day, weed, for some reason, is only sold 10am to 4:20pm Monday to Thursday, and 4:20pm to 10pm Friday to Sunday. Apart from buds, people can buy rolling papers, storage jars, and gigantic wooden bongs.
423/425 Sukhumvit Road, Khlong Toei Nuea, Watthana. Open daily 10am-10pm
Medical Cannabis Shop
Socialite and provocateur
Leena Jungjunja has been selling THC-loaded products since ever since she opened her two-floor shop in 2019. The second floor is marketed as a medical clinic for patients struggling with pain. At the clinic, located in Pratunam, she sells a variety of CBD products as well as THC sprays and, of course weed that starts at B500 per gram.
Indra Square, 2nd Floor, Ratchathewi. Open daily 10am to 10pm (Clinic 10am-6pm)
Leaf Cannabis Cafe
One of the first places selling CBD-based products, Leaf Cannabis Cafe has expanded its menu to include bud with prices starting at B600 per gram (B800 if ordered online).
Apart from the weed, it sells a CBD menu including brownies ranging from B100-250, donuts (B300), cookies (B150-200), popcorn (B200), jellies (B150) as well as CBD oils (B1,290) and THC oils (5ml for B990 and 10ml for 1,890).
