About the program
From the producers of the hit TV series, First Dates. Comes High Society, the Cannabis Cafe. Filmed on set inside our very own Coffeeshopamsterdam Cafe. The aim of the documentary is to test the theory that cannabis can help break down social barriers and bring about a more harmonious relationship between us humans.
Every member of the High Society, brings with them their own clear and heartfelt motivation for trying to get high. Many regular cannabis users probably already know that having a smoke or two can help you to relax in different ways. Which can often help to talk more openly with your partner or among your friends. After all, they do say that those who smoke together, stay together.
Clear, heartfelt motivation
The first of two episodes feature two rookie smokers who are curious about the pain-relieving properties of cannabis. While another couple is looking to address a big question hanging over their relationship. Filmed in a similar style to First Dates. High Society focuses on the story and emotions of real-life people.
Viewers may also recognise a few familiar faces in the documentary. Don from Coffeeshop Amsterdam, Babiche from Tweede Kamer Coffeeshop and Marlies from Boerejongens. All help to provide advice and support to this very special High Society.
Make sure you tune in for smiles, laughs and maybe even a few tears. Showing a positive yet realistic approach and respect to cannabis.
