I just spotted a new article on the 420 Magazine web site that was published yesterday 12th January 2021 that states Cannabis tourism may be coming to an end in Amsterdam if the environmentalist mayor Femke Halsema gets her wish to ban foreign tourists from the city’s coffee shops by the time coronavirus travel restrictions are lifted. https://www.420magazine.com/420-news/international-cannabis-news/no-more-cannabis-tourism-in-amsterdam-post-coronavirus/ It seems that some people are ill with Amsterdam being famous for sex and Cannabis tourism and the connections with organised crime. From my perspective the problem is prohibition, the fact that coffee shop owners have two choices to stock their shop, they either deal with criminals or grow their own supplies, which then means they are classed as a criminal, its bullshit either way. There was talk of banning tourists from coffee shops a few years ago and it came to nothing, hopefully this will end the same way. Maybe this will provide an opportunity to highlight the stupidity of the whole situation with the government and law enforcement turning a blind eye, which is just another part of the problem, the government have created this situation through turning a blind eye. This is why there are problems with Heroin and Cocaine abuse, as a criminal dealing you want to make the most money for your effort, selling weed is not as profitable as selling smack and crack. The average purity of class A's here in the UK is anything from 20% to 30% so if you have a kilo of very clean smack or coke at even 70% you can easily cut it with 2 kilos of brown sugar (demerara) now you have 3 kilos of smack to sell your margin just tripled. There is no way to do this with bud or hash and end up with a decent quality end product, but it is easy with class A's So until governments take responsibility and legalise Cannabis this issue is not going to go away.
New experiences!!! So, I've visited coffee shops in Amsterdam, restaurants in Morocco, dispensaries in the states, private clubs all over Spain and the Balearics and cannabis rum shacks in the Caribbean but I've never been in a coffee shop or cannabis club in my own country!! Crazy? It's not like they don't exist, I just don't live in a populated area to have access or mates who frequent them. im aware of one or two and semi accurate location information but I'm looking to hear about experiences of Brits or foreign nationals who live here or have visited, are members or those who go regularly, know about or have been to a UK cannabis coffee shop or social club that really operates like Spain for example. E.g. Adamsden. most interested in London locations but UK wide is the topic. Sharing is Caring!! PM me if sensitive. Exodus
Alright i'd started a damn huge post but after typing backspace the browser went to the previous page and it fucked my text... On the other hand you guys might not have wanted to read 3 days of amsterdam in details so i'll keep this new post brief, if you guys need some more detailled amsterdam stories i'll be glad to make a longer post, explaining coffee after coffee how it went as i did in my first attempt of a post... During this trip in Dam i've tried: From Barneys: Utopia Haze, Dr grinspoon, Blue cheese, Tangerine dream, Liberty haze and Vanilla Kush. All those strains are primo bud! Utopia haze, tangerine dream and liberty haze had something similar to them as far as taste, tangerine was more of an indica than the first two. Very sweet and strong taste, my favorite of those might have been the utopia haze, but i'll smoke any of them anyday.. Grinspoon was a delicious gingery smoke, a very pleasant exhale. The high was a sativa one for sure, very hyper, but not an instant hitter though... Vanilla Kush was good , a tasty smoke but not the best Kush i've smoked to be honnest. Blue Cheese is part of my next setup for sure. The best cheese i've smoked in my life, even though she's not the strongest weed her taste is so unique that i'll need to have some in my jar! From Grey Area: Chocolope, Chiesel, Kandy kush, L.A Woman, Headband. I was a little dissapointed with the weed from Grey area this time but hey shit happen as they say. Dont missunderstand me though those weed were good weed but nothing amazing as you're used to when buying in grey area. Kandy kush was the only bud that stand out to me. A really powerfull smoke with a particular taste, you can taste the trainwreck more than the kush but it's still is way different than trainwreck. Instant hitter, very indica but like the trainwreck is. Not a couchlock indica. Just a word on the bud tender at grey area wich might be the owner. big props to that guy! His coffe shop's for real and he's a legit bud lover! From Green House: Exodus cheese, Moby dick, Kalashnikova, Chocolope (also smoked some Hawaiaan snow and Malana cream) I was a little dissapointed with the green house menu to say the truth. Taking off the panama haze to introduce chocolope was a bad decision to me. Chocolope isnt in the GH catalog and they sell that strains in many coffee shops in amsterdam. I wish they'd bring back green crack instead of chocolope since this strain is nowhere to be found in dam. My point is i go to GH coffee shop to try their strains, if you sell something that's not in your catalog at least try to be original! I was happy to find moby dick on the menu but wasnt impressed with the smoke, the chocolope was ok and the kalashnikova interesting but nothing amazing. I really liked the high of exodus cheese, it had been a while since a weed made me laugh so much To be trully honnest i hope i'll do a better job with my moby and cheese as far as taste goes cause all the GH weed (except the hawaiaan snow) we're really poor comparison to barney's products. Barney's haze were a thousand time tastier than the moby dick, the blue cheese is a million time better than the exodus (in amsterdam at least) as i said only the hawaiian snow was GH legit. Malana use to be one of my favorite hash but i've passed by Tweede Kamer and try an other nepalese that's amazing and sold at 16/G instead of 20/G... Finally (and you all know i'm a Gh lover) i was really dissapointed by the staff at GH, we were treated like shit several time in all three Gh! Most bud tender are pro's and nice guys bud the waitresses are the worst cunt ever, i dont mind to be a cunt myself but the girl who works at namaste is the worst waitress i ever met in my entire life, and one at the GH centrum come close second (and that statement come from a second bad experience with the one chick at namaste and a repetition of bad experience at green house centrum!) Now i had an argument with one of barney's dealer and couldnt say that they're different as far as commercialism goes but overall their product was superior and their service much much much better! (Big props to that spanish bud tender in the barneys from harlemeer straat, the only bud tender i've seen cuttin the branches out of the bud so you would pay for actual weed!!! He gave me the name of a good spanish rap band as well.) From Tweede Kamer: Martian mean green, Nepalese hash I loved that place 10/15 seats. The first time i went there i had a nice discussion with both bud tender. The man was really honnest telling me that he was not sure whether or not MMG was from DNA seeds. I still bought a J and was really happy with the smoke. A nice rushy high, instant hitter, with a pepery/minty taste. I spoke about hash with the women explaining her what i liked, and she advised me the best nepalese i've smoke in dam.It really remind me some of the hash i've smoked in asia and i'm almost sure this one came from there... So far malana from Gh was my favorite, but at 16/G the neapalese from tweede kamer is even tastier i believe. The Gh nepalese smells like mango but when you smoke it it burns like fuels. The one from tweede kamer taste exactly how it smells, a very delicate smoke. This place is a must go for all "bulldog type of coffee" haters! Form The 420: Nycd Even though it didnt tasted anything like the nycd i was smoking a few years ago, it still was some really tasty weed. a very flowery smoke. The high was very mild, something i didnt dislike in amsterdam. Again this coffe shop was one i discovered during the trip but it became with the doors, Tweede kamer , hill street blues on the market, and green place (not for too long though) the few places i'll hang out in amsterdam... From Green Place: GFK (Ghost face Kush) OGK, Pineapple Kush, Lemon Larry I'd never been to this place and what a fucker i'd been , this place is legit, the people friendly without being to "salesman like" and the weed is the shit! Lemon larry felt like bitting a piece of lemon, for all of you lemon lover try the lemon larry she's a really good smoke! Ogk was lemony too but more a lemon candy than natural lemon, it remind me of that old NYCD, a really powerfull smoke too.. GFK was evens tronger than the OGK but i'm all about taste and i felt like her earthhy taste was nothing comparable to that lemon candy and sticked with the OG for the rest of the trip after trying a spliff of each. Pineapple Kush is THE SHIT! I tend to stay away from those exotic name, and wont ever try the "desert eagle" or the "Kobe Bryant Dick" if you know what i mean. I had a bill of ten and bought half a g of that and damn that joint was like OGK + Morisson haze put together, one of the best weed i've smoked in my entire life dont miss it!!! From The Doors: Morrison Haze I'll never give enough props to Potent. I still rememeber sitting in front of him at the GH lounge asking him "what would you recommend me to buy in the area". He said panama haze and morisson haze, i've never smoked better haze ever since! I couldnt leave amsterdam without smoking a joint of morrison, and she didnt dissapoint me at all. I though barney haze would be the sweetest thing i would smoke but the morrison haze is even sweeter than those, really wish they put it in a seed form, a must smoke for haze lover or sweet tastes! That's pretty much it guys, again i didnt mind to bach on GHSC but i was really dissapointed both with their weed and mostly their services. They want to make something different as a brand, being closer to the customer and respect the fact that weed buisness aint like any other buisness and you do feel that on the web site. My post might not make a difference but at least you guys will know: if yuo go at the green house namaste dont even adress the blond cunt! Grey area,Green place, Tweede Kamer,The Doors, The 420 all have amazing weed at much better prices than Barneys and Green house, and they're much nicer to chill. The Hill street blues on the market is really nice as well but havent tried their stuff. Peace out!
