The city is very special as it’s a melting pot of many cultures as Indonesia was a colony of the Netherlands during the colonialism. People who’re interested in experiencing diverse architecture, different cuisine, and rich cultures should definitely visit Jakarta. What do you think of enhancing the overall experience and smoking cannabis during your stay? Keep reading as we’re going to provide you with brief information on getting and smoking weed in Jakarta.

Cannabis Laws in Indonesia

The laws regarding cannabis are very strict in Indonesia, and you should be really careful when smoking weed in Jakarta. Any cannabis-related activity can give you a harsh time and it’s important to note that cannabis isn’t decriminalized. If you get caught with the amount that exceeds 5 grams, you can end up in prison or pay a huge fine. The police usually don’t focus on cannabis users, but they rather focus on drug raids that often happen in the places where the nightlife is going on. If you want to smoke, don’t do it in public places or nightclub areas, but rather find some secluded park and enjoy yourself.

Where to Get Cannabis in Jakarta 

The best place for scoring decent quality cannabis is Kampung Ambon, which is known to be the place with the highest quality weed in Jakarta. Other places to try your luck are Block M or Kemang. You won’t be approached by people, but if you’re asking for cannabis discretely, someone will eventually point you in the right direction. You can also get a good quality weed in nightclubs, but we don’t recommend you to buy there because nightclubs are known for frequent police raids.

Cannabis Prices

The prices in Indonesia are funny compared to the western world. For example, you can get one gram of decent quality weed for around $1. The majority of weed is outdoor grow, but the best quality comes from Aceh region. If you prefer hashish more, it will be very hard to find any in Jakarta.

Other Information

Jakarta is a very popular city that attracts many tourists throughout the whole year. It’s not hard to get a decent quality weed for a low price, but as the laws are pretty strict, you should be really careful when being involved in any activity related to weed. Don’t smoke in public or touristy places but instead, find a secluded place and simply enjoy the joint. Enjoy your stay in Jakarta!
