Tell us about the Cannabis Store Amsterdam concept.

Cannabis Store Amsterdam, and its brand marketed in the UK, Cannabillion, is an innovative concept that combines the idea of a souvenir shop with the incredible world of legal hemp. We are a young, thriving company that count on the many years of experience of our management time and offer two types of franchise that can be opened: a souvenir shop or a souvenir shop with bar service. We sell everything from smoking accessories (grinders, rolling paper, pipes, bongs, to legal hemp edibles (biscuits, muffins, chocolate, lollypops), merchandising (backpacks, jackets, t-shirts, name badges, beanies), drinks (soft drinks, CBD water, wine, beer) and an extensive cosmetic line.


What differentiates Cannabis Store Amsterdam from the competition?

In simple words, Cannabis Store Amsterdam and Cannabillion have very little competition. We are specifically do not classify ourselves in the “grow shop” category, which focus on the harvesting and production of cannabis plants, but rather present a final, finished product to the customer, derived from the cannabis plant and ready to be consumed or used. In addition to this, we pride ourselves on having the widest product range for a shop of this type in Europe, with more than 250 products in total and new products being constantly added to the list. We offer to an extremely wide range of markets from young children and tourists to smokers and people interested in the use of specific cannabinoids. We are arguably the leading hemp-related shop in the continent and are supported by an entire network of experts in the field and successful franchises in different countries.
