yo sativa science.
here's a page that might keep you busy for awhile. hope it's something new for ya!
We went for the first time in April. Loads of fun, for sure....but if you have access to good buds here in the States you aren't gonna find much weed there in the coffeeeshops that's any better than what is here. The cool thing is really the NOVELTY of it all..and the op to walk in and buy different strains and check em out without havin to grow em for 4 friggin months!
The hash was the treat for us. Lotsa good blonds and blacks..and cheap too. 5-10 a gram most places..and if you buy 3-5 gram hunks you may find even better prices. Bubble was EXPENSIVE and not worth the extra $$ for my tastes. Gimme that slab like we used to smoke in the 70's and let me roll up a doobie of mostly hash (screw adding tobacco! YUK) and I'm fine, fine, fine.
We hit A LOT of shops. Liked Twede Kramer and the hash there, and it was one of the only places we walked into all week that smelled more like hash than tobacco...so we stayed a LONG time...
Bluebird was fun w/ a good selection. Abraxas too. Amnesia is out of the way but had some good T'wreck and Congolese Red on the menu..and a vaporizer for house use. Mellow Yellow is way down south but had some very nice "honey hash" that was the spiciest we had all week. Bought 3 - 3 gram chunks there alone on 3 seperate occasions! cough..cough..cough!
Willy Wortels in Haarlem had the best (Amnesia) Haze of the trip. (and the most comfy chairs!) Fruity and stoney...it sure made the train ride back to A-dam a gas. We munched down hard and laughed like kids! The Grey Area had DNA pot...some REAL tasty hawaaian and Cannalope haze. (I grow it so didn't buy it) Definitely worth seeking out.
The hash concoctions here and there are OK..but I didn't find them to be overly strong for my body type (tall/skinny) The best tastin cake was at DaKampring (another good shop). $5 per peice. You may catch a better buzz whipping up yer own gig. I've heard that you should be careful eating hash though because of some of the "shit" they may put in it....so that's something to think about. Might be wise to eat the Nederhash or ask the folks where yer at what they think. most peeps we met were more than willing to talk/tell you thier experiences and steer you in the right direction if the "menu" simply blows you away/is confusing. SO many chioices!
I'll be going back..for sure. It was a relaxing vaca..though we did walk WAYYY too much!
Just follow your nose, bro. You will find the shops! We didn't plan..we just wandered til we smelled weed and stopped and got stoned wherever we were at....then were back out on the street repeating the process over..and over..and over...winding through the alleys and backstreets stoned to da bone!
And hey..when you read the reviews of the shops..keep in mind that some folks are just assholes. We were treated well all week..and found no pissy shop keeps or rude folks. We acted like we knew what we were doing..and all went well.
we hit www.stayamsterdam.com
for accomodations and found a nice (NICE) apartment near Liedsplien that filled our needs well. No hassles...no sharing...lots of privacy. We even had our own canal...
good luck and have a great trip.
