Chooby said:

"Quality can change from resupply to resupply. The same strain can be great one day, a week later the same strain in the same shop will not match up so it changes.

"Best" is also subjective. Best what? taste? high? Whats great for me, others have said "not my favorite" and the opposite is also true others brag about how good some buds are and I'm not terribly impressed.

That being said the Hazes at Amnesia are top notch. (The times I was there)"

Chooby is right on with the above statement. Other hazes that have impressed me on my past visits include silver and super silver haze from Dampkring, Greenhouse, Le Tertulia, etc. NL5 X Haze from either Katsu or de Rokerij, Hawaiian Haze from Abraxas, Dampkring or Le Tertulia and the California X Haze from Stix.

I'm expecting some chocolate haze from FL soon--anybody heard of or tried this strain?

So far after a good amount of different weeds I have tasted, the sour diesel and the haze taste the best. As long as the weed in amsterdam doesnt taste like the over priced BC buds we have here, were in buisness. I just need to find a strain there that tastes beyond anything I've tasted before.
off the top of my head.....

4077 bud from grey area
bubblegum bud from grey area
grapefruit haze from amnesia
cherry bomb from the nes
yeah bad batches happen.....which greenhouse did u get em from?
I was just gonna say that Grey Area seemed to have a nice selection of Haze as did Greenhouse although I was disappointed with both Arjans #2 and Nevilles.
yeah bad batches happen.....which greenhouse did u get em from?


Uh.... the main one.. Arjan even gave me some a little speach about the herb (it was during the cannabis cup) and then I think the Tolstraat one or whatever?...... I think it's buy conciensous(sp?) dreams or some where by the Bulldog in the RLD...lmao

I dont think the herb was "bad" I just think that it was overrated and the overall taste wasnt as good as say...... The NYCSD from Dampkring or the LA Confidential from Grey Area

haze isn't the best tasting strain, and it never was. Pine / Musk mix.
But then again NYCSD tastes like diesel fuel so your taste confuses me :)

the SD.. smelled of diesel oil. along with a nice scent of grapefruit

Thats exactly how it tasted too.... I smoked a joint of J1,NYCSD, and some ice-o-later rolled into a large joint. During the Cannabis Cup waiting in the raining ass line around the Melkweg and everyone agreed it tasted great..

As for a strain to be Impressed by?

The cannalop haze (might be at Grey Area)
La Confididental
Collosion from Grey Area
White Dolphin from the Dolphins
Kali Mist (seemed to be good in every shop I went to unlike the blue berry)
Arjan's Haze and Nevilles Haze can be quite good. Arjan's is usually found at the Greenhouse coffeeshops. Nevilles at greenhouse or de kuil at times.

Bushdoctor Coffeeshop specializes in haze crosses but they aren't the best.

Also I read a recent positive post about grapefruit x haze which if I remember correctly was also found at amnesia?
As far as effects go, I don't have any personal favorites. I'm more of a tast guy. i prefer weed that has a real distinct flavor.Any recomendations on that note?
Best Haze in amsterdam? I want to buy the best Haze hands down in amsterdam. Where do I buy?

I agree wholeheartedly. :-) Also a very nice shop with friendly people there.
Katsu has some nice hazes as well.........

Three of the four are indicas, which are not the "haze" (sativa) varieties.

Shhhhh....don't tell them that. They won't get that uppity high if they know it's not a sativa.
I got some Haze in Homegrown Fantasy during the week and it was top drawer and the Nevilles Haze from 420 Cafe was also top drawer. :-)

oh yeah how much does that stuff run? I think I might have to buy a nice 5 gram sack of that.
Hands down? Hands down best haze is Amnesia Haze from Willy Wortels. I have never bought it anywhere else because WW does it right. It is the true one hit wonder, gets me so stoned that I have to sit down. Extremely potent, expensive, and takes 12 weeks to flower. Only available in Holland. Hawaiian haze is also good, but not nearly as potent. I have never tried Neville or Arjans, but they might be good too.
Blueberry Haze from the NOON !
I got Silver Haze from Rockland for 18e for 2 grams and it was very good my favorite haze probly.
I bought a five gram bag for 50, but it might cost anywhere from 10 to 14 for a single gram. The growers have very little incentive to sell it, explained Nol, because it's 6 extra weeks of flowering, 6 extra weeks to get busted, and six extra weeks of care. You'll only find it at really quality shops. I've heard bad reviews of it from Barneys and Amnesia, so I only buy it at Willy Wortels, and it's really potent.

Koninginnedag?

Is that an area or a street? I need to look that up. Thanks tho.

Koningin = Queen - dag = day... This year it's on the 29th of April cos the normal date of the 30th falls on a Sunday this year. It's a nationwide piss-up and party day


woohhaaaa T-Minus 7 days.....!!! :D :D :D :D I freaking cain't wait ppl..woohoo!!
What are the rules for drinking in public? Are you allowed to have open containers or is that a big no-no? Thanks alot.
Not legal, but I think enforcement is subjective.

If one is making a horses ass of oneself, no one will notice/care.


There is no shortage of bars and cafes in the city, and that is where you should go if you want to sit and drink.

That's the Queen's Birthday ( actually the Queen Mother's ). Mix Fouth of July, Mardi Gras, add a little European flair, add a heaping dose of weed/hash. Open air concerts all over town, It is a PARTY.

I just thought of this and had to edit it in.

Times Square, New Years Eve + Europe + weed/hash = Dam Square, Queens birthday.

Enjoy

Drinking outside is only allowed on Koninginnedag. Any other time you risk getting an on-the-spot fine.punt

except of course if you're outside a bar or something
Hmmm..Wish I was lucky enough to participate. Maybe some day.

Heimweh....Kopfschmerz....???? I'm rattling my brain trying to think of words that might make that connection to figure out how that works out. Do you think that it might have to do with the fact that the Babelfish feeds off of brainwaves and if there aren't any available in the brain of the original composer, it might get discombobulated due to some sort of anoxia or anorexia of the brain?
into german and back on babelfish.

Well yesterday I was sitting in Amnesia minding my own biz when in walks this guy with a bright orange button up shirt and a fadora. After realizing it was the infamous bollocks, I cracked open the special stash and shared a large Amnesia haze dutchie with him. He will still stitting there in a glaze as I rode off.

::: overture done :::

Our protagonist, il Bonliacci, was traipsing down towards the RLD.
Cheech the great, and bolsy the bols trollopsing along also.

HUNTER'S BAR! .. k.

IL BONLIACCI! OH MY POOR SON!
ILLLLLLLLL ! and i am feeling your pain
MY SON! ILL! BONNETTE!

..come hilda and work your magic....
we cry for cheech to ... uhh.. he is having a whitey.
what's wrong?
a whitey, cheech.
let me get my pur... too late..
BONO foller me outside!
... .. uh.

he didn't foller. 30 seconds later I stepped into the funniest live-action comedy with which I have ever been involved.

slowly I turned back into Hunter's Bar,
step by step, inch by inch smirk by smirk...

AHA! I KNEW IT I DONE TOLL YOU!

...i saw him on the final descent. His bottom 'glided' into the floor.

simultaneously, Cheech bared her fangs and after turning her head a complete 360, she hissed, "GIT YOUR ASS IN HERE!"

no green vomit.

i hoisted old Bone up and out. There is a little wooden bench outside.
The whitey dude (the gatekeeper) would not shut up.

we gathered ourselves in 10 mins and hit the Old Choo and beered and smoked and laffed and laffed.

...i was pissed, once upon a time this day.
..cheechmaroni was late.

i hugged their necks and got Dutchie-Kisses from a beloved cheech.
altho she told me where her mouth had been...

We 3 had been craving this for years.
We 3 can now explore the cravity of it all. Or is that cavity? gravity? depravity?

here's to a perfect night.

I love my Cheecharoni. My Boneech.
Well done muh brutha.....well done.....
i'm not quite sure of the details...
but i think they had a good time.

and perhaps a wootie or twotie.

At the station in Leiden you can catch a bus to Keukenhof.

VERY IMPORTANT TIP: Buy your entrance tickets at the station when you buy the bus tickets - the queues are HECTIC at Keukenhof, even in May.

We went on 12 May last year. Photos here (photos in date order):

Some tulips bloom later than others, I think there will still be quite a spectacular showing during your stay.
Thanks for the info and keep it coming!

I had heard Leiden was a fun town, lots of good concerts and events--so yeah, I may have to actually spend some time in town and visit a cs or two--let me know if you know of any there and how to get to them.

Take a look for a small section on Leiden on the Out of Town Excurions page

Ohh i see youve Boom Chigago on there, i love that place!
Thanks for the info and keep it coming! Yeah, I did the group tour thing once and that was quite enough for me. Next time, I did the train to Leiden and bus--much better to go at my own pace--and not be herded like sheep or cattle. Also, made time to toke up properly once I arrived when not on the tour.

Anybody been here yet this year? I am going May 6-13, so wish to know if the tulips are still worth seeing then, depending on weather and how far along they are--any feedack would be greatly appreciated as I don' t want to go if they are well past peak--and don't want to miss if at or near peak--get my drift. Thanks.

Santa Marta

Yes, I've heard great reports of Boom Chicago and would quite like to go but I imagine that it wouldn't be such fun if you went alone so I've not been

:-)
The sooner the better, but right now-like the 10th maybe is peak time. There will still be tulips there, as well as thousands of other flowers. I went there in late may once and it was still beautiful with some tulips etc. April is the peak month, but u are early may so still ok, go the 7th. I went the day after q day last year and it was great, worth seing. Don't waste money on a gropup thing or bus tour just buy a train ticket to Leiden (which has a few cool coffee shops as well) and then take the bus from right next to the train station (make a right when u exit the station). You can buy the bus ticket right at the train station as well, on the left hand side near the exit. Train ride goes right through the tulips fields, colors blurring by, great trip and worth it. There are also huge greenhouses there that have had something different every year. Once it was orcids, another year lillies.
Have Fun!
Hindsight is a wonderfull thing ! I did it longbefore I had internet access lol .
According to their website http://www.keukenhof.nl/ the flowers are blooming so much later because of the very late arrival of spring that they are even extending their opening days. However I don't think that it matters all so much about when you go. I believe that when certain bulbs are finished flowering they just haul them out and put in new ones that have artificially been handled to bloem when they need them. Altho I haven't been in a long time, I was disapointed in that it seemed like masses and masses of bright tulips and so forth but there missed something. There seemed little care for colour combinations or beautiful and inspiring displays. Looked too much like production line plantings then.

Thanks for the tip, I shall indeed buy Keukenhof tickets at the Leiden station when I purchase my bus ticket.

So, anyone visit there yet this year, if so, please post as to how it was and how far along the tulips are--much appreiciated.

I agree Martin, I wouldn't do any of the usual tourist trips. Not when everywhere around the city (and beyond) is so easy to reach by public transport. When I took Mr Bag Lady in 1998 we went on the very touristy tour which takes you to Zaanse Schans (30 mins), a cheese farm (20 mins), a klompenmaaker (20 mins) and to Volendam (30 mins) and it was awful, all the rushing about and seeing nothing really. If I had known how easy all those places were to get to alone we would have done it thus and enjoyed it all so much more

:-)
Seem to recall a post here and Mytie saying the flowers were late this year so your timing should be perfect there are lots of coach trips but I is better to take the train .I am sure UK Bag Lady has the directions .I did the coach thing and it was too short a time there !

Of this year? Where were you at all the meet-ups? Dang SW.


yea i know im an asshole this is how it went. first i tried to meet up with MHD at central when he first arrived but i never found that shop my hole trip. second i tried to go to 420 on 420 but i couldnt find it either but i found it the friday( day after 420) so imma a big fuck up i know. but imma try to go to New York. i would really enjoy meeting you guys.
I'm going to Amsterdam for the first time with a friend of mine and my brother in September. My friend and I are going to be in Europe for 3 weeks and amsterdam is 6 days of the trip.

My brother will only be joining us for the amsterdam portion because we're funding his trip and and we cant afford to support him any longer than that!

The problem is that his flight arrives at 8:50am and I dont arrive until 3pm. My brother will have a fairly large suitcase which will prevent him from just wandering around for hours.

So what would you recommend for him to do before I get there? Keep in mind that he is not especially map savvy and his mobility will be limited due to the suitcase. Also he is 21 if it makes a difference.

Thanks in advance for the advice; I've been reading the forums for a while now and have gotten some great ideas for my trip. I'd like to get to know you guys and try and hook up when I'm there from sep 6-12.
Great, thanks!
