Nice One Des.




That Kif from the Grey Area...it is pure evil. I thought I had some tolerance but this stuff kicked my butt.

I may have to try some more next month.
I'd go for it, my friend....as a UK based smoker, anything a bit different is always welcomed!!

Whenever I get to Mokum I always pop over to Grey Area and pick up some Grey Mist kif. It's basically an unpressed hash with a more "skunky" aroma than you'd normally associate with hash.

That kif, where do you think it comes from? From all the bud that they are selling! They make free money. I wish that they would leave that stuff on the bud or keep it in the bag for me.
Stonier buds and I don't have to pay for my kif!

Peace-

Right on seoul, at home I toss my buds in the coffe grinder. After a few 1/8's ground up in there the cap fills with kief.
Thanks all. I'm sure it's good but doesn't sound like $20 good. Then again that Moonshine I bought at Tweede Kamer cost more than $23 a gram with the rotten exchange rate.
An old friend of mine in college had a kief maker that he bought at bonaroo(a US jam band festival). It was basically a box with a silk screen and a piece of glass that slid in the bottom. You would put some dank buds in the top and rub them on the silk screen, or just keep your buds in the box and by the time you have smoked all of your stash, there would naturally be kif in the bottom from just keeping your stash in the kif box. The crystals would fall through the silk screen and land on the glass so you could scrape it up with a razor blade. Then we would gather the powder and just sprinkle it on a bowl. You get quite blazed to say the least!! One gram of dank buds would produce quite a bit of kif and you could still smoke the buds. I would say that $20 bucks a gram is a little steep when in all actuality, if you bought (or made) a kif box yourself, you could just put your buds in there and make your own kif and still have your buds to smoke. I like kif, but when it is so easy to make your own just by owning the right box to put your buds in it is not really worth buying straight kif in my eyes. Just my 2 cents! Take it easy!

Later
That be me ^
Make your own Kief.

I personally grind all of my buds in a coffee grinder. After thirty days of daily smoking the cap is filled with kief.

or you could use a kief box. Just search for it. I like the coffee grinder and it's the way the people around my parts do it.
Some more knowledgeable people can step in here, but as I understand it, kif is a powder made from the dried flower of the female pot plant.

Here's an interesting link. An exceprt from it is below:
http://www.totse.com/en/drugs/marijuana/modmoroc.html

Resin collection is very simply performed by stretching a single layer of nylon scarf material across the mouth of a large plastic wash tub. The entire plants are covered with a sheet of plastic and flailed with a stick over the tub. The large stems are thrown away and the crushed plant material is rubbed back and forth across the cloth sieve. The coarse plant debris stays behind while the resin glands, powdered plant material, dust and dirt falls through the seieve and is collected in the wash tub. The harder and longer the plant material is rubbed on the screen, the more plant material goes through with the resin, This process is repeated over and over up to a dozen times until nothing but powdered green leaf is coming through the sieve. The first and second extractions are mostly resin while the subsequent batches are mostly debris.

The Moroccans can market almost any quality of hashish and no resin is wasted as you shall see. The first two or three sievings are combined to produce the best commercial grade of Moroccan hashish known as "Zero-Zero." the yield from 100 kilos of dried kif plants is approximatly 2 to 3 kilos (or 2,000 to 3,000 grams) of "Zero-Zero" quality hashish.
My dealer is offering me Kif at $20 US/gram. What is Kif? Is Kif stronger than hash? Or another name for hash?

A nice Kif box I got in AMS @2 years ago cost 50euro...it has paid for itself over and over again...I mean it has paid off for my friend...
lol docski.

Alfred the Butler had one in Mokum this last trip.

Collected quite a nice stash.

woof.

WOOT!
bought a nice box from seeds direct...the are locted on Singel a few short steps from the grey area...the shop itself is alot of fun to visit...like the poster above said, it has paid for itself many times over...anything i smoke or vaporize gets ground up over the screen in the box rather than breaking it up by hand...i get a few grams of kif every month or so when i scrape the glass under the screen...

Really Interesting Style, I loved reading it.!!!
Many Best Regards,

Maybe I am just cynical, especially when the Bulldog Lounge is involved, but perhaps the weedtender was taking the piss.
Raw mincemeat shaped like a turd.I got a good laugh as I pictured you forcing it down while trying to be polite to the weed tender who was so proud of his cuisine.It sounds like the rest of your encounter was great though.Thanks for sharing.
Saturday morning, and we started the day with a coffee and the last of the White Widow while watching A?dam stir into life out of the hotel window. I felt like shit after being up half the night with crucifying heartburn. I swore to never eat curry again! A magpie landed in the tree on the opposite bank of the canal, and I was just about to nod and say ?Good morning? to ward off the evil when its mate made an appearance. A good omen, and I started to feel better straight away!
We hit the Paradox for brekky ( a cheese toastie and a glass of O.J. ) and another bag of the W.W., before heading into the city centre.
We?d done most of the touristy things on our previous 3 visits, but had never been to Artis Zoo, so we got our bearings off one of the handy ?you are here? street maps and set off to find it. Once we got to the other side of Dam Square we again found ourselves in uncharted waters having never been further east in the city than the R.L.D. It was a fair trek, and when we came upon the Bluebird coffeeshop decided it was an ideal place to rest up for a while! There was no one in the small overflow area downstairs but upstairs was packed, mainly with people who wouldn?t have looked out of place at a church social meeting. I went to the counter while the Missus tried to get us a pew. After scoring a gram of Thai Gold ( 7 Euros ) and a couple of coffees I was pleased to see my better half had copped a couple of cracking seats overlooking the busy main street below. We smoked a fat spliff of the Thai and enjoyed the hustle and bustle around us. A woman teacher sat at the side of us marked homework while tooting on an equally fat one, and I couldn?t help but smile when I wondered what her pupils would think if they found boulder burns in their copy books!
Half a hour later we found ourselves wandering round the zoo. I was sad to see the big cats in tiny enclosures but the rest of the animals seemed happy enough. We had a sandwich at the café half way round then sat on the benches near the waterfall and caned a joint of the Isolator I?d built back at the hotel. Once again I was ripped to the tits and the walk through the aquarium was quite trippy! It started to go dark and despite only seeing half the exhibits we decided to split and leave the rest for another time.
The walk back to hotel was fairly uneventful except for a pedalo taxi driver sending a guy on a bike flying when they crashed at a junction. I don?t know what the cyclist shouted after him in Dutch, as he hobbled away pushing his bike, but I?m sure it wasn?t very nice!
It was after 7 by the time we?d showered and got changed for the evening and we were both fuckin? starving! I fancied a curry, but the wife had seen a Dutch restaurant she liked the look of and as usual she got her way. She ordered steak and I had fried eggs and bacon on bread. I regretted it though, as I?d eaten my meal in 5 minutes flat, then had to endure another 15 minutes of watching my Missus munch her way through one of the biggest, juiciest steaks I?ve ever seen!
After the previous night?s lack of success in finding a decent coffeeshop in the back streets of the Jordaan we decided to walk up to the Siberie via any decent bars we passed along the way. We wound our way northwards stopping for several beers and passing a block of kamers with window girls as we did so. ( I didn?t know there was a R.L.D. west of Damrak! ) The walk was further than I thought though and my Missus was complaining of aching feet by the time we reached the Bulldog Lounge. Reluctantly I went in, as I?d read some pretty shitty things about the Bulldog chain, but to be fair it wasn?t so bad. It reminded me of a British pub so I was surprised when the barman told me they didn?t sell beer. I got a couple of cokes and asked to see the weed menu. He pointed me to glass cabinet on the wall where you had to hold down a light switch in order to see what they had to offer. Strangely everthing was in 12 Euro deals, so I asked for the Superpolm (1.3 grams) and went and joined the wife. Despite the place being busy she?d got an excellent spot along the back wall underneath some photos of famous past customers, Sylvester Stallone being the only one I can still recall. There was a cordoned off V.I.P. area just to the right of us with ?reserved? signs on the tables, so I kept an eye out for Sly joining us while we smoked a couple of J?s of the Superpolm. Sadly, I was disappointed!
It was getting late by now so we made our way back to a pub just across the canal from the hotel. The only places to sit were at the bar next to an old Dutch woman with a huge pink beehive. The barman was quite chatty and we were soon having the crack with him and the old dear. She was eating what looked like a giant ?pepperami? sausage by hacking lumps off with a wicked looking knife and scarfing them down. After the rather measly meal I?d had earlier I was ravenous so when she went for a piss I asked the barman if she?d brought it with her or bought it there. He said it was her own but they did sell sausages if I?d like one. I ordered one but when he put it on the bar I was gutted. It was completely raw mincemeat shaped like a turd, and I reluctantly ate it with all the relish as if it was a turd while the barman proudly told me it was an Amsterdam speciality! The old biddy started telling us some of the crappest jokes I?ve ever heard and the guy behind the bar looked on incredulously as I nearly pissed myself laughing at every one! I was still laughing so much at throwing out time that I nearly fell over the rail into the canal when we crossed the bridge on the way back to the hotel!

Peace, Des.
desi you rock.

tell us about the Thai.

sounds like you tripped a lil.

WOOT!

WOOT!

It was a nice smoke, but not too heavy. Ideal for the day time if you've got shit to do! It was nothing like the genuine Thai sticks we occassionally got in the U.K. back in the seventies though. Maybe some kind of cross strain?

Peace, Des.

p.s. The entire weekend was one big "trip". Don't you just love Amsterdam!
