A Joint Effort: Building Thailand's Cannabis Community
By celebrating local flavors, supporting mom-and-pop growers, hosting performing arts events, and contributing to the growth of canna-tourism, we are building a stronger, more connected community throughout Thailand.
Move over booze, powders, and pills, there’s a new social lubricant in town, and it goes by the name of cannabis! That’s right, party people - this magical herb has been bringing people together in the most unexpected ways, and I’m here to tell you about how Phuket High is building a stronger and more connected cannabis culture here in Thailand.
Cannabis as a social activity
For most of us, using cannabis is a social activity. Whether you’re sharing a joint, munching some THC-infused edibles or passing around a bamboo bong, there’s something magical about the ritual of using cannabis together that creates a sense of camaraderie and connection. And here in Thailand, where we’re less than a year into legalization, there’s a real opportunity to build a tight-knit community of like-minded cannabis growers and consumers.
Using cannabis to make deeper connections
It’s not just about getting high together. Cannabis can also be a catalyst for deeper conversations and more meaningful connections. When people use cannabis together, they tend to let their guard down and open up in ways they might not otherwise. This inevitably leads to conversations about life, love, and all things inbetween, and can help forge deeper connections with family, friends, and colleagues.
Cannabis and networking
Let’s not overlook the business opportunities that cannabis brings to Thailand. Here at Phuket High, we’re more than just a neighborhood dispensary - we’re a community hub. We host events, workshops, and beautification projects that bring different facets of our community together and help them connect. Speaking about grassroots networking opportunities, it doesn’t get much better than this:

Phuket High is stoked to play a significant role in making Thailand a top global cannabis tourist destination. With our premium products and dedication to celebrating local culture, we believe that Phuket will soon become a must-visit destination for cannabis enthusiasts from around the world. By collaborating with other canna-businesses around the country, we’re building a strong network of growers, dispensaries, and consumers that will solidify Thailand as a top cannabis hotspot.
Phuket High and Ducky Kush
One such collaboration is with well-established and respected chain of Phuket barbershops, Ducky Cutz, who’ve ventured into Ducky Kush, offering a private smoking area and separate cannabis dispensary as an extension to their hair-styling services.
According to Ducky Cutz owner and founder Ella, transitioning into offering cannabis products in tandem with the barbershop just made sense, as many of her longtime customers already use cannabis, and that cannabis has long been a part of barbershop culture.
Ella says it isn’t just locals partaking in ganja; visiting tourists are eager to purchase Thailand’s world-class cannabis products too. “A lot of customers drive by on the airport shuttle bus, and it starts around here. They see our shop and they stop. They just came from the airport like, ‘okay, I just want cannabis right now, yeah, yeah.’ So they tell us they want to be here just for the cannabis.”
Removing cannabis stigmas
Beyond its personal and economic benefits, cannabis can also help break down barriers and create a more inclusive society. By legalizing cannabis and creating a safe, welcoming space for adults to partake, we can help break down the stigmas of cannabis use and create a more accepting and understanding culture. And that, in turn, can lead to greater fellowship and connection with the broader community.
Here at Phuket High, we’re passionate about using cannabis to create a sense of community and fellowship. By celebrating local flavors, supporting mom-and-pop growers, hosting performing arts events, and contributing to the growth of canna-tourism, we are building a stronger, more connected community throughout Thailand.
