What's changed in 10 years?

Post by Vinnie Vegas » Sat 7th Sep 2019 09:54 am

What is new? I know that from what I've read so far they have Hash Joints now? I know the Dutch are also not on the Concentrate Train.

Can you guys clue me in into anything else helpful as my trip nears? Thanks.

More expensive, more chains (both shops and coffeeshops), less actual coffeeshops, more tourists....meaning residents more angry with tourists.

Pretty stark when I read it back, but it's true :) My remedy for this has been to stay up near Vondel park more and exploring the South and West suburbs more, in addition to trips to other cities. The one big thing that all the changes have not been able to impact is that wonderful fcuking feeling of having no prohibition related anxiety while there.

Things that are positive........edibles quality has improved and you can now use visa most places though some Albert Heijns' are still holding out. Also I would venture that 10 years ago you may not have had google maps. That's the biggest game changer, it was no fun getting lost for a few hours when on a two day trip :lol: :mrgreen:

Sadly true :? especially Amsterdam is packed with tourists... well there are times of the year when the city isn´t so full of tourist but it seems to getting worse and worse :?
A good thing is that there are much more genetics from the US available over here... while Haze was king in the past in the coffeeshops you see that the kushes are very big now. What I thank for otherwise I would maybe never have tried a OG Kush till now which showed me a complete different full taste that I like so much :mrgreen: Unfortunately it´s pretty hard to find a nice flushed and cured weed in coffeeshops nowadays :? So some "smart" businessmen had the idea to sell some "better" weed marked as "Top Shelf" or as imported from Cali for very high prices like 40€/g in a coffeeshop.
Well just a few of them are maybe real imports but most of them are in my opinion just money making...

There are not much coffeeshops that offer concentrates but some (well for very high prices)... some places also have a Rosin press for free use...

Indeed Google maps saved much of my time :lol: but on the other hand I found pretty interesting areas of the city while getting lost or it´s a great feeling to find a place randomly :lol:

This is very true about the US genetics, the block hash is also a positive development.

Higher prices for weed, coffeeshops are busier and there’s less of them. Also the red light district is smaller and there’s nowhere near the amount of cocaine/detergent salesmen on the street. There’s probably a lot I’ve missed but yeah a lot has changed
