It’s not well-spread information, and it even surprises us, that the weed is virtually legal in Cambodia, in a form of weed pizza. Technically speaking even in Amsterdam it is not much legal to the date to possess and consume, but imagine that in Cambodia it is ‘allowed’ to cultivate in a household a reasonable amount to use marijuana as a spice for cooking the traditional Cambodian food recipes. So weed is widely used, and this is the way how they offer the product to tourists without a hide.
Cambodia’s Weed Pizza Is Called Happy Pizza
It’s not easy to find all of the legal information about the weed pizza as soon as the official sources are mostly in their language, while other media sources state quite contradictorily to each other. Just do not let yourself to forget that the country is foreign to you, and like any country of the world it have its own issues. But it is so easy to forget everything in such a friendly place: We have tried once this weed pizza in Hospital Avenue in Seam Reap (a small touristic town in Cambodia by the border with Thailand), and it is an UNBELIEVABLE experience especially in the reality of Southeast Asia
They serve weed pizza stuffed and topped with marijuana leaves and flowers, they bring it to you with generously-dominating green colour. The digestion is slowing down the effect dramatically, and the weed of Cambodia – I must admit – is damn rich under the Cambodian Sun! And it is not exactly “cultivated” by the Western meaning, in other words, pretty wild… pretty wild… Some people over the cannabis blogs even suspect that the weed pizza providers add a small bit of opiates, which is also “virtually legal” for Cambodian traditional cooking recipes, and for cultural and religious ceremonies.
Seam Reap is a new hotspot for Marijuana tourists is becoming popular and is likely to grow one day to be a New Amsterdam of Asia
Okay, this weed pizza was a very cool experience anyway! No regret! No doubt!
Happy Elephants — Weed Pizza Providers
In the touristic places of Phnom Penh, the capital of the country (yet not the best city of the world to spend holidays), and Seam Reap, which is much-much better, a small touristic town next to Thailand border where the Angkor Watt rests in a jungle… the streets over there are flooded with the snack-bars and restaurants serving openly the weed pizza: Happy Angkor, Happy Elephant, Happy this and Happy that. And this is quite well-represented in the online maps too.
Use “Happy” As A Keyword When Ordering For Getting Your Potion of Weed Pizza
For expressing your intention clearly to restaurant’s staff you may openly use the wording “happy” while ordering the weed pizza. Use it in any way you wish, because they do really understand why you are there. Something like “make it happy” (the one we used), and they’ll understand you perfectly.
Otherwise they bring a regular pizza, which is also legal in Cambodia 😉
