Beforehand - while I appreciate input in general and happy to see some interaction in this thread since my last report – I want to ask anyone to please stay on-topic as this is not about whenever you have been to Amsterdam in your life or your general point of view but mainly about the latest reviews of coffeeshops you visited either in the Dam or the rest of the Netherlands.
Thanks in advance!
Cheers, hope you can go soon again at some point!
No offence intended and I basically agree
with you as well as would supporting your approach as shown in my posts here but while I think naiveté is generally a good thing as it still implies surprises in what seems a too determined world these days you're on the wrong track with your thought respectively
idea big time.
This infracstructure in the Netherlands doesn't exist since yesterday and I can tell you Dutchies know how to trade historically spreaking and learnt how to make money so one will have a rough time trying to take the bread out of their mouth on their own ground. Even more than that this applies to any country/place in this world ; just try to enter an (il)legal market no matter what product in any random neighbouring city of yours(hint, hint).
Nonetheless, good luck!
By the way:
I now remember someone asked me on here what I think about Haarlem
some time back and here's my opinion: been rarely to this town yet and only know a few places but clearly remember about the sorta hype ages back. Can't judge at all but each to their own, enjoy!
despite knowing better we just came back from a trip to Amsterdam
were shown a couple of options but apart from one new blonde Moroc(16€/g)we all tried this before so went for the current batch of 'Khalis'(15€/g)and another new Moroc called 'Muhib'(sp) for laughable 18€/g.
Latter one I wouldn't have gone for but a mate was curious – as sorta anticipated only
Dampkring's version of current so called traditional landrace hashish from Morocco being vastly overpriced for reasons others and myself already pointed out in this thread and elsewhere on here.
Nice enough but nothing special at all ; again to be fair though we couldn't resist visiting our favourite private source
outside of town on our way to this holiday destination(again, so handy Nederland is small and you figuratively can reach everything in a few minutes. Again, no offence intended as 'quality over quantity' applies here, too)for
proper Moroccan resin and it was just on the same level in opposite to their usual consistency in quality.
Bit of a disappointment but I guess I can still file that under 'first world problems', really as there will always be next time.
The 'Khalis' this time smelt and tasted a lot more like traditional Moroc than new ones so in fact it is 'ticking all the boxes', lovely effects as well.
So even better than the gold we usually pick up privately and so best traditional on this occassion!
Though not my type of hashish as just a sticky, suspective blackish lump and wouldn't it be the Original Dampkring
I wouldn't bother as they rarely put me off over the years hashwise ; otherwise as mentioned before a too crowded shithole. Remember this all started with batches of 'Habibi' and 'Noor 2000' Tweede Kamer
came up years ago.
They had quite a selection for hashish this time and we got us Papaya 90 micron
and Sherbet 73 micron
for insanely priced 22€ respectively 25€ per gram and supposedly from Morocco.
Purchased nonetheless particularly excuse this time was 'buy it before the world comes down' due to covid19-pandemic. Riddiculously named again by the way as I doubt those 'strains' were involved. 'Papaya' particularly had a beuatiful yellow yet ochre colour, quite impressive texture and a strong taste of foreign genetics is all I can say, sorry.
Oh and yes, it had a strong sorta up-high but quite clear and one dimensional. Good solid though of course!
The 'Sherbet'[put up pictures here
] came up with similar properties and tasting a bit of kush I'd imagine and somehow fruity. Effects were a tad stronger than the 'Papaya' but sorta characterless as I'm always greedy for trippy as hell effects.
Still probably the best Moroc with foreign genetics this time and needless to say I'd go nuts if I would have had that quality of both products at home every now and then as it is clearly high grade bordering on top gear!
, El Guapo
(out of sheer amusement, ridiculous
) and Resin
were visited as well but couldn't serve what our dreaded as picky group of hash loving mates were looking for mostly.
as reported in the past years I don't like to go during crimbo time but this opporutnity it was apart from mostly lousy weather quite bearable as no matter how much I like gatherings of family and mates I can't stand that corny christmas commerce everywhere and no matter where on this planet so I appreciate a stall-free Dam square and all that ; fuck them christmas fairs!
Also for obvious reasons not many people around compared to usually. So win-win me thinks and softens my bad conscience of having failed again not going over crimbo
