That's not a comparable example, because it would cost a fortune to get a return flight to China, whereas a return flight to Morocco is the same price from the UK as going to Amsterdam!
Yes but the point is it’s a totally different economy. There is no point comparing prices between the Uk and China or Amsterdam and Morocco, totally different places laws and way of life
This site is about stoner holidays mainly, and going to a foreign country to smoke hash & herb - as a tourist, I have the option of getting on a plane for the same price to go to Morocco or the Netherlands, and when I get there, I want to smoke and get high. It seems exactly the same situation as a tourist and user of this forum to me, and about the law, cannabis is highly illegal in Morocco and even getting caught with a small quantity will land you in jail, whereas cannabis is decriminalised in the Netherlands, so it should naturally be cheaper there than another 1st-world country where it is illegal.
well, the site is actually about coffeeshops in Amsterdam if you want to be pedantic, however the forum is really just a bunch of pot heads talking about dope (a good thing btw)

You talk about the price in legal vs illegal places, I can just about decipher you believe the price in Amsterdam where it is (kinda) legal should be cheaper yet we all know this isn’t the case, weed in Amsterdam is more expensive than anywhere else I’ve been and I’m not the only person who says that. I’ve never been to Morocco however I’m told that hash there is dirt cheap.

I got as far as you blaming the Italians for Dutch greed.

@kingbee agreed. The pricing situation in Amsterdam is more out of control than ever and you rightly point to the influx of tourists with lots of expendable income and a mistaken idea of what constitutes quality product coupled with the greed of shameless Dutch selfish capitalism that continues to inflate the price.
Nothing can be done at this point I’m afraid. I don’t see prices falling unless we see legal access across the continent as a whole and/or other countries allow for weed tourism so the consumer has more choice.

And I’m as guilty of paying above a sensible price as the next tourist I’m afraid.

Yeah I don't see coffeeshop prices going down.

That said, for non-CS sources, aside from Spain, I think weed in NL is cheaper than most places - at least in Europe - if you know where to look. It's certainly cheaper and better quality than you find in places like Germany or Italy among others. Though again, for quality and price across the board I think only Spain and the UK even come close to competing. The rest of the "market" weed around the continent is by and large even more dogshit than coffeeshop weed, and that plays a large role in the coffeeshop's ability to keep raising prices unabated. Access to consistently good (or even decent) "market" weed (re: not growing your own, or being close with seasoned growers) is a very rare thing the world over, pretty much in tiers it's.

Tier-I
North America

Tier-II
UK/Spain/NL

And the rest are all shaky at best after that (maybe Australia or NZ would have some good stuff, idk).

I am in London. Buying something to smoke is not difficult. Quality, however, can be a matter of luck. Even when it's good, there's not always much of a choice. And I've been lucky to have a variety of sources, even after I lost two of the best over the past year. But it all gets rather tiresome, and would be more so if I devoted even more time to what should be as simple as shopping.

So every so often I pop over to Mokum, enjoy the civilisation of choice and coffee, stock up on salted liquorice and return to these uncivilised shores to my daily routine. Yes, I know things aren't what they were in the day of the guilder, or even as recently as a decade ago, but there's still reasonably priced variety about, particularly for hash. And the city hasn't lost all its magic. Though I've yet to make a purchase in El Guapo, and don't suppose I ever will.

Never been here, kinda got the impression it was a bit pricey. That being said I saw their gg4xS5 hash on IG the other day and it piqued my interest. I like the sound of those genetics and €12 seems reasonable enough. 81% though is that even real :D anyone tried it?

I tried a hash from them called Gorilla Glue Ice (15€/g) one or two years back that was sold in a plastic container with a sticker where it was written "Gorilla Glue x S5". So I am not sure if it´s the same... while from the look it seems to be pretty similar but that doesn't have to mean anything :lol:

It was pretty good but 15€/g was a bit too much in my opinion. 12€ sounds much better but I am carefull with that dark sticky hashes advertised with such super high THC content now. There is some black dark sticky hash around in a few coffeeshops by which it seems to be something wrong with it. In contrast to good quality sticky hash this stuff is very wet to me. There is too much moisture in it... it also smells very strong and kind of not natural... very overpowered smell. Furthermore it is black from the in- and outside and only bubble a little when touched by the flame. Personaly I had that kind of hash from Coffeeshop Relax sold as "Gorilla Glue Ice" also advertiesed with more than 80% THC.

The "Gorilla Glue Ice" from El Guapo that I tried in the past looked/smoked pretty natural to me so... but that they say it has more than 80% THC reminds me a bit of that bad example :? I would take a look/smell on it before buying and if there is anything strange on it (especially smell) don´t buy it :D

Thanks Marok21 I’d prefer not to work with these gooey hashes as I’ll have no fridge, plus those content level claims do raise a little suspicion in my mind. I would like to try a nice S5 hash as I do like the flower. Sure I’ve seen one somewhere else
