About us

Home/About us

Organic Press is a small publisher located in Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Amongst our publications we have books about growing cannabis, the policy and the social discussion around cannabis.

The 1st edition of Organic Press dates back to 1993, “Sinsemilla sous lumière artificièlle”, a French book for novice cannabis growers.
Shortly after followed by translations in German, Dutch, English, Spanish and Italian.

In 2003 we released a Dutch manual for growing cannabis in outdoor: “Cannabis Sativa L. Buiten”.
This publication is also available in German and French.

We did not stop there. Organic Press is also strongly involved in the discussion of the policy on cannabis and the social and political discord herein.
An example of this is our book : “Onkruid vergaat niet”  (“weed does not perish”) by Deborah Bruin. which lists the criminal and administrative history of
the coffee shop policy in the Netherlands.

We are growing and focusing within the European market. We are located in the Netherlands, where the traditional freedom of press
is still high in the priority list. Hence we are interested in manuscripts on related topics that fit our philosophy.
One example is our edition “Nachtschaden”, (“Nightshades”) written by Brian Twint, a book about psychoactive plants.

And our latest publication is a photo book, documented by Bert Janssen, on the most well known cultural freezone in Maastricht: Landbouwbelang. A small haven for and by independent souls.
