We don’t want to encourage anybody into puffing – we are here to assist the people who want to spice their time with the herb with being responsible and cautious when doing so, to minimalize any possible risks of good time gone bad.

The ideal recommended quantity that you should carry on you is less than 3 grams of cannabis. The next recommendation is to strive to carry less than 5 grams, it might be a little riskier in terms of harsher sanctions, however the probability is still relatively low. If you were to go out in Bruges with more than 5 grams, than you risk much higher fines and possibly years of prison time. The reason for this is that dealers tend to carry higher amounts, which makes you a person who is likely to deal and make money by selling weed. One should also consider that there are aggravating circumstances of the consequences from getting caught smoking cannabis is Bruges, such as smoking in a public place or near children, which can increase the fine into the thousands, or even lead to jail.


Where to Find Weed in Bruges

If you have no relationships that can provide you with a contact, then you would need to go out and look on your own. When going on this adventure of yours, keep a few things in mind. Cannabis and hashish are many of the times sold by immigrants and it is relatively easy to spot them. There are of course locals too that would be able to help you out, but it’s more unlikely finding a local selling, instead they would be able to connect you with another individual who they use for obtaining cannabis. If you found someone who could supply you, then make sure to proceed with caution and awareness. Do check your weed as sometimes dealers would put some plants or grass that is not cannabis, to save money by selling you a product that they could get from the park. The price will vary and in the end of the day you can’t expect to get a great deal for your money, beggars can’t be choosers. This doesn’t mean that you should be ready to spend as much as you are offered, just use your head.
