Is cannabis legal in Spain?

Recreational use

Cannabis in Spain is decriminalised for personal cultivation and use. Cannabis clubs are a popular way for enthusiasts to buy and use cannabis as a technically-legal product.

In private places, consumption and possession of up to 100 grams is legal. However, it is illegal for trade or commercial purposes. Sale and importation of any quantity of cannabis is a criminal offence.

Consumption and cultivation by adults in a private space is legal. Cannabis plants that are located somewhere visible from the street/public place are considered a serious administrative offense, which leads to a fine from 601 to 30,000€.

Medical cannabis

Surprisingly, for now, in Spain, medical cannabis is not regulated. However, in June 2022, the Spanish Congress approved a report on the analysis of experiences of cannabis regulation for medicinal use

Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices gave authorisations to cultivate cannabis for research purposes for medical and scientific purposes. Therefore, certain patients can have access to a cannabis-based drug only on medical prescription (patients with endometriosis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, etc.).

Thus, there are not clear regulations on medical cannabis in Spain yet, but the country is working on them.
