Cream from coffeeshop Aggie a winner|
As theguest also posted, we all were impressed with the Cream from
Aggie's at Marnixstraat 222.
PurpleHaze and I stopped in there on Friday the 17th. He rolled up
a gram with some toasted tobacco and we shared it. When it was done
we were both couchlocked for 30 minutes just staring at each other:)
All three of us went back over the weekend and we split a j with about
3/4 gram in it. Still made for a formidable smoke, man. Nice taste and
extra-heavy stone. 9 euros a gram.
They also sell one hash on top of the Cream, their "Special" for
12 euros a gram. It's a fine smoke, too, but no where near as fine
as the Cream.
Below the Cream is their "Puntjes" (corners). I think it's 8 euro a gram.
Supposedly the hash is bolied (?) in hash oil or something. I doubt that,
but it's a great smoke. Kinda dark for a maroc, quite moist, and very
pungent in fragrance.
They also have internet access, Revenge From Mars pinball, billiards,
Photo Play, and a full bar.
Aggie's right along the Tram 10. It's well worth chscking out.
There you are! Nice to hear from you again. ;-)
I have heard of that address somewhere before. Wasn't it some other coffeeshop? I think I have seen an ad where the owner proclaimed that he only "smoked Northern Lights" or something to that effect.
Well, nice to hear from you again. Keep up the posts and can't wait for the full trip report.
Go SECRET SQUIRREL!!!!
Way to go Viking ! Going to have to try that cream Mmmmmn....I've had the 'Puntjes' too, I twisted the dealers arm a bit, and was able to score 5gs for ?25, it was quite nice for the price. Check out the diamond top from De Overkant Hortus, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.
Good for you Viking, way to live the dream m8.
BTW, Keep Purple Haze away from the from CShop xtreme. Ask him about the time we enjoyed some of their finest.
As testament to this, I even have before and after pictures taken at Dolphins i.e. before and after Cream!
They confirm that it knocks you out damn near!
I thought Aggie Coffeeshop was at 333 Marnixstraat
Yes mysterious one you are correctomundo. It's Just a few doors North of Rozengracht on the east side of Marnixstraat @ 333.
yes, it is at 333 not 222. oops.
also, tram 10 doesn't run past it.
take tram 10 from leidseplein and get off
at the first stop as it turns left off of marnixstraat.
walk back to marnixstraat and continue in direction tram
was going, very short walk.
Hi Max Flower!
Also on this trip I had to give Coffeeshop Xtreme a visit to taste their lovely Ice-X. Last time I visited Mokum in March they where out of the Ice-X, but a week ago they had it in store again. And to my surprise it was more tasty (and strong) than ever. For those of you who saw me and Viking smoking out on webcam at the Republik cs recently, I smoked a fatty with Ice-X. And after 15 minutes I just had a big grind on my face and was parked on my chair for some time before my brain cells started reacting again?.
By the way, the Ice-X is like 20 euros a gram. But if you want to try the Ice and get pleasantly baked, the Ice-X is a mighty fine smoke compared to many of the other Ice?s around to a much higher price.

Hiya, PurpleHaze, glad to hear you are back in the groove again.

So that's what you were smoking, eh, PH? hehe
Yes the Ice-X was very fine this month, back to its high standards
of March 2003 when I first tried it. It wasn't so hot when I tried it again
in March of this year, tasted kinda "chemically". I was so glad it was
good once again when PH and smoked it this month.
Wish I was smoking some now............
Or some of the Cream from Aggie's.........
I fully agree and couldn?t said it better myself?. It?s always a few weeks of melancholy returning to normal life after being in heaven in Mokum for a while.
I haven?t smoked since returning from A?dam, and was so surprised when I was asked if I wanted to buy some maroc on my way home from work yesterday, that I just smiled and said: - Maybe another time. Today I?m regretting my answer when looking at the pics from our trip to Amsterdam from The Guest.
Still dreaming about that Cream from Aggie
A big thank to Viking and The Guest for the joints you gave me prior to my Departure from Holland. I smoked them all at the parking lot outside the airport in Rotterdam, and was high as the sky on my return to Oslo. What a way to go?
Pass that cream will ya?
You are most welcome, Purple.
I also toked up a storm as I departed Schipol on 26/9.
Toked before heading in to check-in and then headed back
outside to continue toking:) My last toke since then:(
wow purpl, you get approached to buy some maroc on the way home? Is this quite common, being offered in the street?
It's rare here, and if it happens, a dark piece of wood usually results!
Mind you, here the wood taste better than the hash!
Although I did get some bud recently since coming back, but not that great when used to Amsterdam smoking.
It?s not really common, but if you know where to look for it it?s not really a problem getting hold of some decent smoke. It?s not like the Cream we had, but it?s not like soapbar either :=)
I will go back tomorrow and score some.
