Cannabis clubs, or as they are known in Spain as Associations Las Asociaciones de Cannabis and Cannabis Social Clubs, are non-profit social and recreational organizations that grow marijuana with a donation. The members can only consume the cannabis and the club can only grow a limited amount of cannabis per member of the club.
Only members have access to the club. These are private organizations that are closed to outsiders. Only members can grant membership if they are sponsored by a member of the association, or the club endorses them.
The process of buying cannabis in a club is similar to that of Amsterdam coffee shops, but with one key difference. The only way to sell/buy is through willing membership contributions. In a Social club you don't use the word "buy", instead you would say "get", "receive", or "have". Receiving Cannabis is basically a payout of your share of the Social Club. So if you want to receive more Cannabis, you will have to contribute (or Invest) more money in to the Social Club. Depending of the value of the Cannabis strain you will get more or Less per share.
It is important to know that you cannot just walk into a Social Club without being invited -- you will be turned down. This is a key difference between Spanish cannabis clubs, and public coffeeshops in Amsterdam.
A head shop is a retailer that sells accessories, tools and equipment for using drugs, such as marijuana. These accessories are often sold by head shops as "used for tobacco" in order to circumvent anti-drug paraphernalia legislation.
Why is the name "head shop" used? Although there is much debate about the origin of this name, it most likely dates back at the beginning of the 1900s when "head" was first used to describe someone who used the drug often. From that point, terms like pothead became relatively commonplace, particularly in counterculture/subculture movements in the United States.
You can find a wide range of drug paraphernalia and accessories in most head shops throughout the country. Although glass pipes are very common, you will also find many other options such as water pipes, hookahs, bongs, one-hitter pipe, rolling papers and much more.
However, not all merchandise in a head shop is dedicated to smoking cannabis. Many shops carry a variety of items. These include flags, patches, wall art, and posters that are "trippy". These stores act as a link between counterculture members, manufacturers, and companies that serve them in many ways.
