420 cannabis bar in Bangkok 


Thailand has been on the path towards the legalisation of marijuana for the past two years – in 2018, the use of Cannabidiol (CBD) was allowed for medical purposes. 

Since then, the nation has opened a medical marijuana clinic, restaurants, allowed the use of hemp in cosmetic products and even announced tours of marijuana fields. The opening of 420 Cannabis Bar in Bangkok further suggests the change in attitudes towards the plant. 


Bangkok’s first standalone cannabis restaurant 


As of today, 420 Cannabis Bar is the first independent marijuana restaurant in the capital – others are located a two hour drive from Bangkok or in a hospital.

The new joint offers CBD infused dishes like baked pot leaf and spinach with cheese for ฿140 (~USD4.69), and pastries like chocolate chip cookies & brownies for ฿180 (~USD6). They also serve CBD infused boba alongside their wide range of cannabis teas that are priced below ฿150 (~USD5), according to Coconuts Bangkok

Cannabidiol vs tetrahydrocannabinol


Marijuana is commonly associated with a “high”. However, current Thai laws only permit the authorised use of hemp and marijuana leaves which contain Cannabidiol (CBD) and not tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive element. CBD is the active element that provides a sense of calmness and relaxation. 420 cannabis bar in Bangkok Image credit: 420 Cannabis Bar Bangkok

The past year has been tumultuous, to say the least. So, the new cannabis cafe could be a new hangout spot for those looking for some relaxation amidst all the chaos; it’s important that you make sure that both your mental and physical health are at optimum levels.
