---BREAKING NEWS----

We have a NEW leader. Lord of the clowns, champions of extortion. Level 33 asshattery.
The Plug are selling Dutch Grown Zkittles for €25p/g. It's lauded as their High Times Cannabis cup 2018 entry.
:roll: :lol: :shock:

High Times must be charging a pretty penny for a 1st place cup these days.
Jeez
I thought the same, but discussed with Canal-side last night, we're pretty sure that's the "judge pass holder's" rate.

Check the menu 1e posted on their own page and you'll see what I mean.
It looks like 1e want 17.50 for their top price cup entry.... not sure what I’m supposed to be looking at dude? Is the plugs offering more than 1g for the €25 perhaps?

Aren’t judges supposed to get a discount?
it is the cali zkittlez. its €35 on the menu, €25 for judges

good mark up eh

Last March, Utopia was the only coffeeshop I liked that hadn't been "renovated".
I've been coming to Amsterdam yearly from Canada for over a decade but the dope has became too expensive, the hotels and apartments too expensive and the coffeeshops have been turned into electrical lock-ups, like jails.
I've had a medical prescription here in CanadA for 2 years and we'll be doing full legal country-wide in 3 months.
No point in going to Amsterdam anymore.
Even the red light district has gone to shit. :|

Was in over the weekend. Ingi is still working there as is the English dude (not James, the other one). Massive menu, had the OG Reekin but can't recall what it was like (it was one of those weekends), interior is not too bad, though the seats seem to be modelled on Dutch stairs and are not comfy at all. The seats would make me thing they want to be a Grey Area buy and fly place and perhaps use the new lounge for people who want to chill.

Would need to work the menu more and spend a bit more time there, but interesting overall.

Was in here mid-July... No hash listed on the menu! :shock:

Asked if they had any, and was shown some 'Cherry'... Really sticky, with a dark, earthy smell... I suppose i could convince myself it had a slight cherry overtone... A complete nightmare to roll with, especially in the summer heat, but it was different enough, taste-wise, to warrant the effort.... Had a taste similar to the Afghan hash GA had a few years back.

Can't really say it was a head-smasher, and i think it was similarly priced to Bagheera's 24k, but i'd try it again just to be sure i'm being fair... Aside from that, there's better on offer at this price range.

Regarding decor and clientele... I went in here at about 11pm on a wednesday night and it was quiet but for a couple smoking outside... Seemed reasonably relaxing, music was chilled, and there was no sign of British Wanksters... Didn't really think any of the renovations had negatively impacted the place, tbh... Didn't recognise the BT, but he was friendly and as helpful as could be expected with one hash on the menu. :lol:

Your description of the cherry pie shows that's a totally different hash that i had, you could just sprinkle on top of your joint, no nightmare to roll.

i paid 15€ gr and noticed it change to 12€ during july.

Interesting... Like i said, the batch i had certainly had a slight, cherry-like whiff, so i'm not sure it was a totally different hash, but rather a different batch... Indeed, the first crumble fluffed up delightfully, but every subsequent pinch would result in a thickening layer of really sticky oil covering my finger and thumb, sticky enough to lift a full can of Coke™ in the air, and make touching the rolling paper almost impossible without serious stoner issues!! :cry:

....Ended up having to have a pile of dry tobacco to crumble into powder and coat my fingers before every crumble of the hash, and even then it was tricky...

...Again, not a bad hash, but i can get better stuff that's easier (for me) to work with, at an equal or cheaper price elsewhere. 8)
