Joint Custody: the Hash Bar Highs of Amsterdam

The Netherlands realised back in the 70s that fighting the “war on drugs” was also fighting a losing battle. Although almost all other countries in the world continue the struggle, the Dutch sought to minimise the impact of drugs on their society, using more forward thinking tactics. They decided to make a clear distinction between soft drugs (cannabis, magic mushrooms etc) and addictive hard drugs (heroin and cocaine). This division allowed the authorities to regulate and tax the cannabis trade, and put far more resources into the cracking down on drugs which did the real damage to society.

Strictly speaking, cannabis is still not legal in Amsterdam; instead it is “decriminalised” – adults without a license to grow or sell can possess a maximum of 5 grams without reprimand, although in practice, possession of up to 30 grams is permitted. When this policy first came into effect, pioneering coffee-shops exploited the situation by openly selling cannabis. At first, they were frequently raided by the police, but by 1980, a level of tolerance was reached; as long as there were never any hard drugs on site and the owners were discreet, the police would let them be.

In the early days, most coffee-shops imported hash to sell, which obviously created legal problems, as they were purchasing and trafficking goods that were illegal outside of Holland. This lead to the growth in Dutch cultivated cannabis plants (known as Nederwiet), which has now become a science with hundreds of different strains available which are the result of cross breeding programmes. Holland’s climate is not particularly well suited to cannabis cultivation, so most of the high quality weed is grown indoors under artificial lighting. In the same way that Scotland and France have their whiskey and wine connoisseurs, much expertise and excellence surrounds Holland’s cannabis growing industry.

Coffee-shops must be granted a license before they are permitted to sell cannabis and the market is closely regulated. They are not permitted to advertise their greenery so you won’t find flashing neon signs saying “buy cannabis here!” – instead, buy a guidebook to find out which cafes are coffee-shops and then when you enter, approach the bar and ask for the “menu”. You will then be presented with a list of many different varieties of marijuana and hash, which are sold by weight.

Businesses that rely on tourism, such as hostels and hotels in Amsterdam have benefited greatly from cannabis tourism and despite continuing pressure from less liberal governments such as the UK, France and the US, the trade remains alive and well.

However, the current Dutch government is more conservative and has inspired local councils to enforce all coffee-shop regulations very strictly; any that fall foul of the rules are permanently shut down and not replaced. This means that the overall number of coffee-shops in Holland continues to diminish, so if you want to enjoy the hash bar high of Amsterdam, do it sooner rather than later, because who knows how long Holland’s period of enlightenment will last.

Q&A: Do Different Strains of Marijuana Really Produce Different Highs?

Question by A Nony Mouse: Do Different Strains of Marijuana Really Produce Different Highs?
I realize certain types have a higher concentrations of THC so they cost more, but in the end, isn’t all the same drug? Some might get you high more quickly, but can the same chemical really (consistently) produce a certain high (e.g. giggles, taste) ? I think its really just the placebo effect and the mood one’s in when they start…

Does the strains of marijuana / Weed / pot make a difference in the highs?

Question by Hanard W: Does the strains of marijuana / Weed / pot make a difference in the highs?
I have tried both indica and sativa strains and they are very similar to me. Indica makes me sleepy, slighty dizzy when i stand up, and floating feeling. Sativa makes me zone out, slighty dizzy. Neither makes me laugh or as happy as i want to be. I usually watch a funny movie, but sometimes im too blanked out to laugh at the movie. Is this normal? Does the strains really make a difference?

Best answer:

Answer by ge’real folks
Strains make all the difference. You’ve got the indica side down, but the sativa side is usually a little more energetic and a little more spacy and mentally lost. IMHO it is harder to find a good sativa than a good indica, because the plants are generally larger and tend to need a lot of space. They are usually grown outdoors as well, and have a longer flowering time. All this makes them not as desirable for the grower, since there is added time and cost. You need to find a sativa strain that was made for quality first, and find something that came from an outdoor source.

Do different cannabis strains give different highs?

Question by LostConfusedSoul: Do different cannabis strains give different highs?
I LOVE smoking weed and being high ! I used to trip out when I was starting,but that was only because I did not know what to expect from being very very high. Now Im used to it and love it very much!.Especially when I get body highs. The problem is that yesterday and today, i smoked some weed at a friends’ house. This weed tasted different,smelled pretty dank, and gave me an Odd and uncomfortable high. What could be happening? is it the weed, or just me tripping out like an idiot? =[ This saddens my heart

Best answer:

Answer by Thomas
Well, obviously different strains give you different highs since different weeds have different percents of THC in them. Really good weed is like 20% THC vs some regs which is like 5%, hence why shit like regs is 5 a gram and something like jock horror is in the 15 range.
Why the weed could of tasted different is you just smoking different weed or if it had tobacco in a blunt or smoking flavored blunt papers.
The uncomfortable high, maybe you being more hyper vs chill was you’re smoking indica which has been known to give you more of a hyper high vs the normal chill high. Maybe even stronger weed but you smoked normal amount and you got more blazed then you’ve ever been?

What do you think? Answer below!

Or perhaps you delightderive pleasure getting your fix from Indica strains such as Mazar, Romulan, Afghani kush? These are all wonderful strains, definitely! However for today we’ll be talking about herbal weeds instead which you may become interested in using at some point in time.

These first class smoke blends have received the most positive testimonials and results, so much so that long-time smokers have branded these to be high caliber smoke blends in the business. There are many other brands ofc ourse from other legal bud headshops who can also provide the same-equal high caliber legal weeds to the prospective consumers.
The well known suppliers of these exotic herbs who sell wholesale and retail online are herbalsmokeshop, gothicdrugs, sun coast etc., which we shall be reviewing on the next letters. For the present let us talk about these particular products, shall we?
So how did  these herbal intoxications, manage to transform themselves to become people favorites? After all, a lot of them get take off the market, even get called  legal high rip offs by some?
It’s simple really. Although some just have this relaxing psychoactive effect about them? Those herbal cigarettes or smokes, the consumer believes he can get the most precious buzz from? Gets the consumer thumbs-up OR rejection entirely dependent on thecustomer’s satisfaction levels. For now, I will leave you to explore and discover, which among these items deserve the highest ratings.

Would you like to see these graphs and Testimonials?
The results and graphs can be seen on my website. They are based on customer’s feedback and opinions based on actual customers who have tried them. This is to have a consumer database of sorts to get an idea what works, and which items had to be disposed off permanently! Unfortunately the product results that received unacceptable scores were removed, but for research purposes, you can refer to the Erowid for that.

The other items you may find interesting are:
Hawaiian Gold Buds, All Star Legal, Smokers Dream, Hybrid Nuggets, Honey Blonde, Black Magic, KanZak, Inner Vision, Vector Shot, Herbal Quiver, Happy Camper etc, which are also of great quality and worth special mention!

We are close to the end of this article and I cannot rightfully end this article without first telling you you  that these herbal smokes are not tobacco products nor are they legal marijuana alternatives! Unfortunately  a lot of Noobs  mistakenly expect these to be like: psilocin, crack,  dried peyote, stalker, fentanyl,or even inhalant, Alpha-ethyltryptamine, Gamma Hydroxybutyrate, Chronic, Methylphenidate and other street drugs!

Unfortunately that is a mistake! These  legal weeds work for sure, just not as second-rate alternates to the illicit drugs sold by your un-friendly neighborhood drug seller! These are  not meant to be substandard replacements for anything, period! They work but they have their own one of a kind tastes and blends that thousands of people all over the world have developed taste for! The very thing also applies to any class AAA smoke blends not mentioned here today, being offered for sale by other multinational herbal high outfits.As you may know, brand names do not matter as importantly as the powerful, intoxicating contents inside them.

Which contents to be on the lookout for?
The raw legal weeds ingredients of interest to look out for when assesing smoke blends, which are commonly mixed in with these smoke blends include but are not limited to: Leonotis leonurus, Mitragyna speciosa(brand name Kratom), Leaf of god, Salvia Divinorum {{{Extract|Powder|Plant|Herbs}}, Blue Lotus and variety of other herbs! These may or may not be present in the legal buds mentioned, but are the most common ingredients used in the smoke blends niche. Lastly as an added tip. Some people say using Vaporizers (i.e. Herbal Aire H2.1, V-Tower Extreme, or VaporTower ), Bongs, Hookahs etc, intensifies the IMPACT and EFFECTS of the smoke blends!
