But you should still take the opportunity to enjoy yourself to the fullest by partaking of the local hashish, the main cannabis product available in Egypt. I will cover the price, quality, and types of cannabis that can be found in Egypt.

Egyptian law enforcement does not see the control of cannabis as a high priority, although penalties can be severe depending on the situation. To be on the safe side, I would not carry large quantities on my person. I would not expect the legalization of cannabis in Egypt very soon, even though there are around fifteen million regular users in the country due to its low price and availability. Cannabis is used socially and is tolerated by most. It is seen as something for the middle-class. Those in higher standing see alcohol as prestigious, making alcohol a more costly product in Egypt.

The easiest way to find cannabis in Egypt is to simply ask. Not everyone is friendly towards cannabis however. Public workers, such as taxi drivers and restaurant waiters, will usually be happy to help you find some nearby hashish. If you are unable to make your way to the Middle East there are a few techniques on how to make hash.

The Quality of cannabis in Egypt
Most cannabis harvested in Egypt is processed into hashish. You should expect high quality hashish, but the quality may not be as great as you would find in the nearby city of Lebanon. It is important to mention that you should always be cautious when buying cannabis products. Inspect the cannabis or hashish for anything that should not be there as tourists can easily be taken advantage of.

The price of cannabis in Egypt
Cannabis in Egypt is fairly cheap. Prices can depend heavily on your nationality. If you are not being taken advantage of you should expect to pay around 5USD for ten grams of good. Because they hold the value of alcohol over the value of cannabis some may be willing to barter or trade.

Cannabis in Egypt
As early as 2,000 BCE, Egypt saw the benefits of medical marijuana. Scrolls were found showing medicinal plants and their uses, and wouldn’t you know, cannabis was on that list. Times have changed, as well as the attitudes toward it, but it is clear that cannabis has been around forever.

You’re not permitted to buy or sell cannabis seeds in Egypt. As such, you cannot send them in the post.

The Sinai Peninsula (located between Suez and Israel) is Egypt’s main cannabis-growing region. The landrace strain that is cultivated here is also called Sinai, or sometimes ‘Red Sea’, and is traditionally grown by the Bedouin people. There are two types of Sinai; a short, tree-like plant and a taller vine that’s more like a sativa plant in appearance. The latter is easier to train.

Egypt’s political parties have traditionally taken a negative view of cannabis; its use, sale and cultivation. In 1961, they were a signatory to the UN’s Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, and again in 1971 to the Convention of Psychotropic Substances. Since then, the government has focused on seizing cannabis from illegal plantations and suppliers. Efforts intensified in 2010, thanks to the interior ministry’s Anti-Narcotics General Administration (ANGA).

There’s a noticeable divide when it comes to opinions on cannabis in Egypt. While many people freely use it (both at home and in cafes), other people view it as a dangerous substance and are against its legalisation. Until recently, the Egyptian authorities have also adopted a negative stance.

In the ’90s there was a mad dash from seed breeders and sellers to find that ultimate skunk. During this period, lots of growers tried to replicate that Mexican, Colombian, Afghan hybrid which resulted in a huge variety of new generation skunks. The genetic features of these cannabis plants would eventually lay the foundation for almost every marijuana plant in Europe.

Basic / Breeders Info

This Cannabis strain is relatively easy to grow with little maintenance, making it a suitable contender for those commercial crops. Perfect in both hydro and soil set ups, Special Queen is well-suited for the sea/screen of green operations. We recommend 8 weeks flowering for this Cannabis strain; however some growers have harvested as early as week 7.

Indoors, Special Queen feminized will yield about 50g per plant, or 500g per square metre under a 600W light. Outdoors, this plant will grow big and strong and can yield over 150 g per plant. Care should be given to provide it with all the nutrients and water it will need to grow big and strong, while making sure not to give it too much.
