With the official opening of “Grashaus Projects” Europe welcomes its first legal cannabis specialty store in a ground-breaking project. Located in the town of Allschwil in the northwest Swiss region of Basel-Landschaft, this establishment marks a historic step for both Switzerland and Europe. This week saw the opening of the community’s first legal cannabis specialty store in Europe.
Background of the first store
Grashaus Projects is now officially live after receiving permission from the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (BAG). The project aims to roll out a cannabis pilot program in the Basel-Landschaft canton in October. The first of two cannabis dispensaries is currently open and has a sales area of about 110 square metres. A variety of cannabis goods containing THC are available at Grashaus Projects. These are edibles, hashish, extracts, vape liquids, and dried flowers. Interestingly, this is the first store of its kind in Europe.
