With 167 active coffeeshops, Amsterdam is rightfully called the cannabis capitol of the Netherlands. Though simply selling cannabis is not sufficient to be called a GOOD coffeeshop. So, we at Amsterdam Genetics selected the TOP 10 Amsterdam Coffeeshops for you, in terms of top quality products and excellent customer service:
10. Coffeeshop Johnny
Coffeeshop Johnny, named after its owner, is a small coffeeshop selling the finest Amsterdam Genetics strains. Amongst others, they’re presented on one of the largest coffeeshop menus in Amsterdam. Oozing with the atmosphere of the famous Jordaan-district, Coffeeshop Johnny is definitely worth a visit.
9. Coffeeshop DNA
Situated in Amsterdam’s southern business district, DNA distinguishes itself by the superb weed and hash strains served. The DNA menu will make every seasoned smoker’s head spin. Be sure to try the astonishing muffins and cakes provided by a local patisserie or Amsterdam Genetics Spacetry made by a Michelin-star Chef.
8. Coffeeshop Sensemillia
This coffeeshop is worth a little detour from downtown. Founded in 1981, Sensemillia is one of Amsterdam’s oldest coffeeshops. And their experience shows in the fine selection of largely organic products sold. Sensemillia’s Smoking Terrace overlooks Slotermeer-lake, a great setting for your cannabis experience.

2. Coffeeshop Tweede Kamer
Coffeeshop Tweede Kamer was established in 1985. Back when Dutch cannabis regulations were quite a novelty. The shop’s name is a playful reference to Dutch parliament and smoking policies. De Tweede Kamer was the first coffeeshop to start weighing and packaging products in front of their customers. Local smokers visit regularly.
