The Top 50 Cannabis Consuming Countries of the World


The United Nations have released more data, including this very interesting info on world cannabis consumption.

This chart shows the top 50 ranking countries and I am sure is a surprise to some in Iceland.

Note that Scotland beats England and Wales!

And check the USA – nearly at the top of the pile with their ineffective drug war.

I would have expected Italy to be a bit higher than their 4% (they don’t even make this chart!)

The bottom 10 countries were Vietnam, Turkey, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Romania, Japan, El Salvador, Indonesia, Algeria and the Republic of Korea.

UPDATE 4th July 2014

Apparently the Icelandic data may be based on a misunderstanding.

Congratulations then must go to Nigeria – where apparently 22% of the population like to smoke weed!

If you buy weed seeds this might help


Seedscanner is a new website that enables you to search through thousands of different cannabis seeds in a moment.

It has been a while coming, but thanks to the genius of an extremely hairy man in Germany and a much less hairy man in Spain the website is now up and running.

This version is aimed at growers in the United States. Prices are shown per seed to give an overall picture of value.

We hope you find it useful and welcome any feedback you may have.

UPDATE January 2015 – Seedscanner have added many more types of cannabis seeds as well as refined search so for example you now get very precise results for ‘Dinafem Blue Cheese Auto‘ – try your favourite strain and if the results are not good please contact us and let us know. Functionality to restrict searches to European or Worldwide delivery only has also been added.



The changing world view on cannabis mapped

Here’s a map showing this data (countries changing their cannabis laws, or talking about it) with a few additions thanks guys and thanks to those who have sent me links. I got the information by Googling the word ‘cannabis’ along with every country in the world and looking for relevant stories.

The worldwide picture is quite revealing wouldn’t you say?

It seems like there are changes happening all around the world. Except in the UK.

How much longer can the British dinosaurs ignore this huge part of their economy?

How much longer will they prevent sick people from access to the most powerful medicine on the planet?
