Hey guys!

Figured you guys might enjoy the local drama going on here:
News article in NL

A grenade was found in a trash near Coffeeshop Splif and there had been report of an armed man so the mayor decided to close the cs for 2 weeks. I think most people here don't believe in a gang stuff but someone who doesn't like having a coffeeshop in his city. (Splif is the only one with a smoking area)

So yeah, the CS is closed until March 2nd.

Hey guys!

Figured I might do an update on this one. Sorry for the poor quality photos, my phone sux.

Spliff 2 is still a decent CS quality & price wise. Most of their strains are oldschool and while they are clearly not as strong as the top strains from GreyArea/Voyagers/etc, they are quite tasty and makes great everyday smoke. I've been let down on only 1 strain after 10 months of purchasing at least twice a month there.



They had this lovely blue cheese 2 days ago at 10€ / gr, the taste was really amazing with a heavy accent on the blueberry flavour. It came right after a few very disappointing purchases at Leiden.



The white russian there also has a very strong smell & taste. Was perfect for that last crazy week of work while the Mrs is away in Japan for work…


Ah, also the staff is quite friendly!

ACD page: Splif II, Purmerend

I'll try to ask if it's OK to take a picture of the menu but it's basically almost the same than this one.
I'll also update the thread with photos of the CS because it's really a nice one, full of locals. The only other CS in Purmerend is for purchase only and I'll add a review of it soon :)

The CS

I really enjoy the mood there, most of the customers are locals and there is a lot of regulars. The decoration and the furnitures makes it looks like a cool and simple bar. The seating is the only downside and the reason I don't usually stay more than 1-2 hours there : there only are bar stools and although decent, I like to lay down like a dying animal after a few joints :) There are two tables near the windows which are my fav place to chill as the outside view is quite nice.
There also is an arcade machine with a big digital touchscreen incrusted on a table, you can play various games and
there always is quite a crowd around. Also, the staff is awesome and very friendly to non-local.

They open from noon from to 10pm everyday.

Weed / Hash

This is a weed coffeeshop for me : the hash is good but it's a bit too expensive as there is no 5G deals. Everything is pre-bagged at 10 euros which is the highest price / g I've seen there in 5 months. I know pre-bags aren't to everyone's taste and I strongly advice to quickly check the looks and the smell of the weed. I did check 10+ bags, the amount was always correct and sometimes a tiny bit more.

The only strain that disappointed me (I tried all the regular strains) was the Gorilla Glue which really can't hold up to its sister version Gorilla Glue #4 but at 9.10€/g, it's still a good smoke. Outside of that, the quality is really good and far superior to some pre-bags I've bought in other CS. There are 2-3 strains which change on a weekly/daily basis and it has not let me down so far. They had an excellent OG kush and the best blueberry and ak47 I've tried yet. I

They offer either free lighter/paper/tips or a free hash/weed joints (if you're going for the free join, go hash, the weed one is sometimes too light.) at 40€ euros purchase (maybe at 30€ too, not sure)

Bonus photo # 1 I go there way too much… It's the only one I have atm that is mine.

Sorry for the lame google view capture, I'll update it asap but that's the sweet view you get when seating near the windows :

Side note about Purmerend

Despite having 80k habitants, the center is quite small (its a 15-20 mins walk maximum) but it's quite lovely. It's mostly local with the occasionnals expats like us. However, there are a lots of restaurants and brasserie where you can relax with a good and cheap beer :)

It use to be famous for its cow market and was basically a farmer/fisherman small town until the 70' when all this changed with the needs of more habitations around Amsterdam.

Despite being lovely (I love my new town!), I wouldn't advice it against the likes of Haarlem, Leiden, Hoorjn, etc. but I've heard that there are cheap b&b/airBNB and we are only 25 minutes away from Amsterdam Centraal with buslijn 301 :)

Few images :

The koemarkt, the big place where there are a lot of bars/restaurants, 2 mins away from Spliff II and 5-7 minutes away from Anna.

The center of the city is surrounded by canals, as often in the Netherlands, this one is 2 mins away from my home :

I hope you'll enjoy it and I'll try to update it with more pictures ! Feel free to drop me a PM if you plane to step near by :)
