jBomb's Weedly Week Report

Postby jBomb » Mon Sep 04, 4:30 am

Day One - Monday 28/8
Coffeeshop CentraL
2.4 Buddha - 12,5
Good initial high, but wore off quickly

Funny People
2.0 White Widow - 15
Excellent, felt like I was floatin;
Music changes up, cool decor and nice guy
Classic comics dot the walls
Stix 1
Ice-O-Lator
Hits hard
Small shop, quiet, didnt stay

Day 2 - Tues 29/8
GreenHouse Namaste
1 g Arjans Ultra Haze #1 - 10,50
Very Nice, lasted long, could hold conversation

Soft Temple
Nice shop, Indian decor
2 g Brainstorm, 17,5 (Bong)
Excellent, stormed my brain. Do I taste Diesel?

Grey Area
1g Sour Cream - 12-5
Smells like Fruit Stripe Gum,
Havent smoke yet - waiting for the right time

Bluebird
No Cheese for a while
Afghan K2 - 1.8g for 12,50
Good Stone, relaxing.

Day 3 - Wed 30/8
Rusland
1g Jack Herer - Takeaway
Nice view of street, sat outside.

Dampkring
1g Domina Haze, 8,50
Functional so far
Fuckin stoned ass kitty

Future
1.5g White Widow - 10,
Better than I thought it would be, long lasting?

Day 4 - Thursday 31/8
AnyDay
6 vapes, ROOR bong available! Across from RLD window
1g Stella Blue - 8,5
Good Sativa strain

Hill St Blues
VERY COOL SHOP, BIG
Grattifi everywhere, pool tables,
Fantastic view of the Damrak
1.5g Hill St Spec - 10, - EXCELLENT!!

GH Namaste
1g NL Special 7,30
Quality Indica, but I prefer WW, unfortunately, Greenhouse seems to have moved beyond that. Barneys, however, can get you sorted

Day 5 - Friday, 1/9
Barraka
Small shop, ok menu, not impressed
Stoned kitty

Nes
Landmark Rez/ACD Meet
Thai-tannic - 1G for 8, - excellent, fresh, moist thai

Greenhouse Effect
GHS 1.5g - 10,
Out of my head


Day 6 - Sat 9/2
New Barneys Shop
Extra posh, NYC lounge style
1g Panama Gold - 12, - so far its worth it
Expensive, but good service and not busy like other shop
Volcanos out for use
P Gold looks so good its almost a shame to burn it (exhale)
1g WW for 8, - for later. Buzzin!

Katsu
.7g Flower Power Kief - 10,
Bonged it with some more P. Gold. Very nice.

Mello Yello
Hitting Barneys WW, hells yeah, crystal covered, BOOM, totally worth 8

Stopped by Homegrown fantasy - no Cheese, its rare but RooR Bongs,

Went again to Funny People, demanding that you buy smoke if you want a warm drink or bong. I understand, but there are plenty of places that dont mind, and the fact the Widow at Barneys blows Funny Peoples awaym will probably keep me from them in the future. WiFi and promixity to my place are the only personal advantages.

Old Church -
Met with Blinky - ACDer/Channelite - Good time had
1.8g Ice Skunk - 12,
Skunky indeed, but nothing remarkable

Bluebird
More Afghan K2 - 1.8g - 12,5
Quickly becoming a fav Indica

Day 7 - Sun 9/3
Barneys Breakfast Lounge
1g WW - 8, - still totally worth it
Stumbled into Barneys, went into Pink Floyd but not much there

Dolphins
Very cool downstairs, ocean theme crossed with space
1g White Dolphins - 10, = 100% Sativa

The Noon
Same people/owners as Mello Yello, BUT prices are better
5g Blueberry - 23, - Supposedly best value for money in town, true so far

The fact that you get a gram for less than 5, with this deal when it runs 7, per gram is astounding, considering the quality. Cool, brightly coloered Hindu and south Asian themed. Wi Fi.

Old Amsterdam
Asked for White Rhino, but theyre all out of it. Month or so.
Good size, Rasta/crazy-crap-on-walls theme

Overkant Hortus
No more big bags or 3 for 2, but cheap/discount days

IF I WAS YOU, ID

BEST SHOP OF THE WEEK
Hill St Blues on Warmoestraat! - For Atmosphere, Weed, tenders, and View - During the day its very quiet and you can chill out play pool, at night is more of a social bar atomsphere, but rearly overbearing to the lo-capacity smoker.

BEST WEED/HASH OF THE WEEK
Surprisingly, White Widow from Barneys! At 8 Euro, its only about 1 euro more than anywhere else in Amsterdam, and completely worth it.

LEAST FAVORITE SHOP OF THE WEEK
Barraka - but it wasnt terrible, I didnt buy any smoke, so I think the tender was a little ticked. I drank my tea quietly and left. This is why its called LEAST FAVORITE SHOP OF THE WEEK and not WORST.

LEAST FAVORITE WEED/HASH OF THE WEEK
Buddha from Central - Maybe because I went through a couple of grams of different stuff fairly quickly at first arrival, and I wasnt planning on stopping at Central first thing (but honestly, how often do you make it to the first shop you plan on), but Buddha hit quickly and passed without a trace. After 45 minutes, its like it never happened. However, it might have also been that I was up for 30 hours and had a zillion things to do went I got here. In any case, thats the one I would pass on if I had this week over to do again. Fortunately, I do.

I thought for sure my first pick would be a high end 100% sativa from some non-commercial spot, but here we are. A regular stash of White Widow from Barneys will be had.

Check out next weeks post - Dont know how many shops Ill be able to visit, some of these reports will be very short, and Im sure some will be longer than Id like to admit. Such is life.

Come to think of it - if anyone has a particular shop or strain they want to hear more about, let me know, and Ill put on it on the list! A Weed DJ of sorts - I hit the hits you wanna hit!

I remember getting the strain because it had won the cannabis cup in 2003. I dont remember much about it though, other then that i was pleased.

Here is a picture, now I cant be 100% sure this is hawaiian snow because like a dumbass i didnt label my photos. But im almost certain this was it, because of the thc almost dripping off of it.

jBomb's Weedly Week Report - 4/9-10/9

Postby jBomb » Mon Sep 11, 7:18 pm

Your Weed DJ - Smokin' the hits you wanna smoke...

4/9 - 10/4 - Im an Fn idiot.

Hey - Just to let you know, even though I have numerous auto-saves and recoverys on my laptop, my friends borrowed it last night and lost everything from this week. So, rather than a usual update in the format like last week, Ill give you the highlights as I remember them. Damn, I was really priding myself on having a good, concise record, and now its shot to hell.

Maybe this Sour Cream from Grey Area I got will aide my woe. Its doin the trick so far. Also on Grey Areas top list is the Kif at 15, for 1g - its Grey Mist/Ak-47 combined - it tastes like chopped liver, but its really good chopped liver . Though its not on the list, I asked about Martian Mean Green, and john dug deep and hooked me up with a gram for 12, In the Volcano, excellent for walking.

Also, great, cheap hash at Feels Good on Gelderse. I didnt come across much to avoid, though. OH had a great time with blinky anc cannabistourist early in the week. Cheers, guys see you for the cup?

Though I havent gotten any yet GreenHouse currently has an OK looking Hawaiian, but what blew me away was their new Strawberry Haze. At 13,5 a g, I was hesitant, but the smell was a blast to your face and it looked like it have been timed to the minute for harvesting and curing. Incredible, hope it lasts. This maybe a version of that Strawberry Cough the west coast goes on about.

Broke down and bought some Strawberry Haze frgom GH-Namaste for 13,5 on Saturday night. Good? definitely. Great? Yeah. But 13,5 euros no, not that much. One puff though, and youll stop caring about the price an just about everything else.

WEED/HASH OTW - Sour Cream (Grey Area) Youll know why when you try it. Also the Kif at Grey Area - incredible mix of AK-47 anf Grey Mist.

COFFEESHOP OTW - Barneys Breakfast Bar - extra-friendly staff that does right by its customers. Ask for Andy.

LEAST FAVORITE WEED/HASH OTW - A disappointing Shiva sticks out that I got in De Kuil, of all places. Brown, no real buzz. To be fair, I was in the other day and they have some pretty good White Widow in, so all is forgiven.


Thats about it, I got bogged down in study and stuff and didnt make it to nearly as many shops as I thought I would. Well see what next week brings. Maybe a mix of the old, statistical and new, anecdotal formats next week - still findin' my flow.

Het Bom

PS - Send your requests, coffeeshops or strains you're curious about, and I'll see what I can do. By the way, someone mentioned Happy People C/S - don't worry, I didn't forget!

Thanks for the great reports. Heard that Stix has some great "old skool" temple ball--let me know if you tried it. Run across any NL5 X Haze at Rokerij or Katsu? How about Morrocan Ice hash, Cheese, MK-Ultra? Keep up the good work (fun)!

Enjoy,
Santa Marta

Well, thats quite an order, one i'm happy to try to fill, though. I've tried Bluebird and Homegrown Fantasy, which are the two stores have Cheese when available, both said maybe in a few weeks. Then again, I heard cannabistourist got a preroll of some at BB the other day, who knows.

I would love to find MK-Ultra, but think its a strain of the past. Will keep my eye out, and I'll add your requests.

11/9 - 17/9

Postby jBomb » Mon Sep 18, 5:33 pm

Another week... another report....

Mon - 11/9
Siberie
1g White Dreams - 8,
Hit the bong with it, much stonier than I had predicted.
Channels Meet - jBomb, UKBL, and Viking = Aces. Starting to love these meetups, will look for more.
Cool, post-modern art on walls, pinball, cool budtender.
Will go back for sure.

Tue - 12/9
Hunters - The Coin
1g Hash Plant - 8,
Takes a while to hit, but when it does, make sure youre sitting down.

Nes
.5g WW Ice-o-lator - 8,
Hard to find a straight up WW IOL, but Nes pulled it off magnificently.
Saw DC, ran into cannabistourist (Cheers, man. See you next year)

Bluebird
Back again - Super Silver Haze 1.2 - 12,5
Gettin lifted while listening to Muse
Contender for WOTW

Wed - 13/9
Abraxas
1g Elephant - 8,5 - New Strain - plant unknown
Smoke a joint outside, too fn hot inside, didnt enjoy my high

Amnesia
Certainly erased my memory of Abraxas
1g Honey Bee - 11,5
Worth every damn penny in the RooR bong, ask the tender
POW! Like a fireworks display going off in your temporal lobe. Yeah, like that.

Hill St Blues #2
Smaller, more chilled out that #1 - Also no alcohol, unlike #1
HS Special - 1g for 8,5 - Nice, but not as nice as the time I got some at #1

Thursday - 14/9
Bluebird
2 Prerolled pure Blue Cheese joints, 5, each,
Very nice stone, but rare, apparently mother plant stopped giving good clones, so they need to backtrack a little.

Barneys Lounge
1g Morning Glory - 9,
Put it in the Volcano - felt something, and made four bags out of .3g, but I dont think I get nearly as much effect as I do when I Hit the bong, or smoke period. Weird.

Mellow Yellow
1g - 10, - KABOOM! The SSH is most def the fave OTW so far!. I love this shop, too.

Fri - 15/9
Carmona
1g Hawaiian Haze - 8,
Nice, powerful smoke, cool Indian décor
Stoned ass kitty, internet in the shop

Bluebird (yes, again)
Had a second Blue Cheese Pre-roll - 5,
1.6g Hash Plant - 12,5

Sat - 16/9
La Tertulia
.6 Bubble Ice-o-lator
Ran into Viking and SDShadow - COOL
Just as incapacitating as they say. Its taken me two entire minutes to type and edit this sentence. That doesnt sound like a lot of time, but its not a lot of writing either.

Eerste Hulp
GREAT SHOP
Big, comfortable, Arabic décor, out of the way
Great secret hideaway, good hash

Softand 1
2g Ice - 12,

Sun - 17/9
Amnesia
1g Bio-Sage - 11,
Not on menu YET
Tastes like sage, so HIGH.

Dampkring
1g Hash Plant Haze -
Powerful, gives you the sativa jolt that straight up Hash Plant leaves behind. Definitely good if you got stuff to do.

WEED/HASH OTW - It maybe only be the third week, but we have a TIE! Dont get so excited. Its an up, down thing. You want up? Super Silver Haze from Mellow Yellow. Incredible weed from a very cool shop. Down, you say? Bubble IOL from La Tertulia is all its cracked up to be. Glued me to Bluebirds couch for well over an hour. I even sat through No Doubt on the stereo, and I hate No Doubt.

SHOP OTW - There was a theory to keep this gem a secret, but I feel like Id been letting you down if I didnt tell you about Eerste Hulp (1ste Hulp). This shop is a fantastic. Firstly, its in the west, off of Elandsgracht, so its non-central locale means reasonable prices and a place to sit. There was plenty of each, as the place is wall-to-wall cushioned booths done up with Moroccan and North African themes. Perfect for hanging by yourself or getting a group of ten together and heading down there. On top of that, their hash is excellent and prices are much better than at the more commercial shops. Two kittens, cool staff, quality smoke. Cant be missed.

LEAST FAVORITE WEED OTW - I guess if I had to pick one, itd have to be White Widow IOL from Nes. Apologies to those y=who are fond of the Nes, but maybe reading this. Maybe with my usual love of your selection, and my new found appreciation for White Widow, I was expecting too much. Great smoke, still. Chosen Least Fav out of lack of choice, really.

Until next week, I suppose. I got a chance to meet Soma (Soma Seeds) not long ago, and once I get around to putting down, Ill post it. Pretty interesting guy, pretty fun anecdote. Slowly grinding through the to-try list, and loving every second of it& Ill be back next time.

Nice work, JB. Full marks for really making the most of your time there, will you still be there in November? I arrive on the 21st for 5 days, I'll get in touch nearer the time. I don't know if I can keep up with your heroic intake, but it'll be fun trying!

Thx for your reports man and hopefully in 2 weeks Greenhouse shops will have some Hawaiian Snow. I really was looking forward to trying this even if its the last of the bag.


Here's the link to some old info on it. Looks like a nice out of the way place to try. If you're looking for it, remember that Eerste Hulp means "First Aid" and is often written "1ER Hulp". You may end up in the hospital, toking with the ambulance drivers.

Weedly Week Report 18/9-24/9

Postby jBomb » Mon Sep 25, 7:00 pm

Greetings. I have nothing to say, so let's get to it...

18/9 - Mon
De Kuil
GOOD FREE WIFI - a rare treat in a Coffeeshop - Also, Funny People, the Noon, and Amnesia seem to be good, if youre interested.
1g Blueberry - 8,
Very good, bit better quality than Mellow Yellow, Id say.
Channels Meet - Thanks to the organisation of WeeLisa, roughly ten or so Channelites attended and a good time was had by all especially SteveVS.


BlueBird
1.9 Poison Hash - 12,5
Likened to Honey Maroc (which Im now on the lookout for thanks to Viking and SDShadow). Sweet taste, good mellow effects. Perfect for watching a crappy movie - say Capricorn One with Elliott Gould and OJ Simpson? It made it bearable for me.

19/9 - Tue
Grey Area
1g Grey Haze - 10,
Very good haze, everything you expect at GA. Looking forward to properly trying the 4077 bud I picked out.
2g 4077 - 16,
As good as a really good White Widow, this is a pretty decent deal. But if you are only buying a g or two, spoil yourself with something at the top of the menu.

Hunters
Haze Heaven - 1g - 11,5
Was unsure, but the budtender insisted it was what I was looking for. I dont know if it is, but I will be looking for more of it. One of the best Hazes around. Too much of a bar atmosphere for me, though. I guess the Coin branch of Hunter's is more my style

Future
Bubbel G - .66 - 5,
Take away.
Nuttin special. Just got it cause it was new.

20/9 - Wed
Hill St. Blues 2
Northern Lights - 1g for 7,50
Much better than other NLX Ive had, say at the GreenHouse.

21/9 - Thursday
HAARLEM
WW Sativa
1g Nederskuff - 7,
Good, but a bit too pressed for my liking. I like kif to be loose.
1g HP13 - 11,(?)
Very, very good. Maybe a favorite sativa after Super Silver Haze, which Im starting to love

WW Indica
Shop is huge, just as cool as they say. Pool, internet, outdoor terrace.
Maybe the biggest shop Ive ever been in.
1g NYC Diesel - 11,
Didnt have the kick I expected, hoped for more considering how long I went with out buying the strain
1g Willies Choice - 6,50
Straight-up, nice indica. Good mellow, lots of crystals

I stopped by Empire, Birdy, and the Theehuis, didnt buy or hangout at any one though. Really wanted to find Regine and Maximillian again, but nope. Something for next time, I suppose.

22/9 - Friday
Bluebird
1.2g S. Silver Haze - 12,5
Classic. Still havent found the perfect sativa for me, but SSH is doin just fine for now. Of course, Sour Cream thats another story

23/9 - Sat
Reefer
2g White Widow - 11,5
Weed is OK, one only sativa on the menu (NYCD), drinks are overpriced, and the budtender didnt seem too interested in showing us the different product, even though we were the only ones there. Also, no bongs or pipes to borrow, which is a major con for me. Fortunately, the Bluebird is literally inches away, so you dont have to waste your time at Reefer.

Amnesia
1g Amnesia Haze - 11,
Sometimes you gotta go with what you know. Its almost gotten to the point where I have 5 or 6 shops that I plan on frequenting, most with good atmosphere and great product. Looking like Amnesia, BB, Barneys, Grey Area, Katsu, and Dampkring/TK right now. Not exclusive, by any means however. The kicker - all of these shop have a wide range of sativas/indicas/hashes and they are great shops to visit.

1g Nepalese Temple Ball - 1g - 9,
The real deal. Even had the label it came in on the wall. The tender cut a perfect gram first gram good eyes.. Mixed it with the A-Haze, and as of now, its just fine. Real perfect for an end-of-the-night thing. Vertical isnt an option.

Pink Floyd
1.1g 7 Seconds - 10,
The guy couldnt tell me exactly what it was, which was surprising at PF, but its mostly sativa and def a good smoke for the price. Cool shop for big groups, if upstairs is available

14/9 - Sunday
Grey Area
1g Sour Cream - 12,
Dear Lord. Could it get better than this?
2g Grey Haze - 20,
Apparently, yes it can.

WEED/HASH OTW - Grey Haze, baby. This is definitely a staple in my diet. Super Silver Haze has its place, but theres something about the taste of Grey Haze that immediately puts a smile on your face, almost like you know what youre in for, and you cant wait. Grey Area scores again.

COFFEESHOP OTW - As you can tell, I have settled on a few choice favorites to repeat my patronage, and there are no surprises on my list, probably nothing that isnt on yours. Ive pretty much given up on the GH, but well see what Arjan can whip up for the cup, hope its not the Strawberry Haze of a few weeks ago, though. The GH shops just aren't living up to the hype. Even their new H. Snow crop is crap, just ask the tenders.

Nevertheless, we as a society must perservere, and so honors to C/SOTW this week go to WW Indica, which looks like an 80s teen recreation center with train seats and a buttload of herb. Frankly, I don't know how I'd feel about the former if the latter were removed. You probably wouldn't see me within 1000 feet of it. In any case, I'll be back.

LEAST FAVORITE WEED/HASH OTW - Though WW Indica may be the shop of the week, its NYCD failed to live up to its reputation and its price. Also, they really only seemed to have one or two sativas at each shop, and thats what I was on the lookout for at the time.

Til Next time. As always, feel free to post requests and comments.

Hoi Jbomb, must have missed you at Katsu the other night. I got there bout 20 past 6pm so a little late. Will catch up sooner or later.

Indica shop is the one by the river. I think you were in Sensimilla. It is upstairs and the largest of the three. You will like Indica too, and it does have a pool table, but currently no Internet for customers. That will be changed soon. See you round. Great reports btw.

Yes, MHD, you are indeed right, I was at Sinsemilla. I was Indica and Sativa back in December, just got the names mixed up. C/SOTW does go to WW Sinesmilla. Thanks.

CORRECTION - C/SOTW goes to WW Sinesemilla, not WW Indica, though they are both cool. Just a little name flub on my account.

Excellent reviews! I'm coming in next weekend and this is just the thing I'm looking for.

Please, how is the:
Stella Blue from Amnesia?
Juicy fruit at Abraxas?


Bhuddas Sister at Dampkring?

Does anyone have REAL temple ball or thai stick?
Thnx
W.



1. Temple Ball-Stix CS.
2. Stella Blue: Anyday CS. The best around..

If ever Red Diesel comes back on the menu at Amnesia, you must try it.

A wicked stone and it's a creeper as well-superior to the equivalent I tried from Barney's.

Best,

.oracle. (Hey jB....nice man...love the reports'...I shall post my own experience with the Hash Plant from Hunters', later.....a lot later...jB..u know what I mean...)

Stix
1g Gunpowder - 12,5

26/9 - Tuesday
De Kuil/Café 420
1g Creeper Haze
There wasnt any SSH, so the budtender turned me onto this, which isnt currently on the menu.
Met Blueberry and BluMing and had a great time. They definitely know how to do it up.

Nes
1g Stella Blue - 8,5
Great stuff. AnyDay is maybe a bit better, but seeing DC is totally worth it.

Rokerij III
1 NL5X Haze - 11,5
Thanks for the tip, oracle.!

27/9 - Wed
Trinity
1.8g Casablanca Hash - 12,
Another great out of the way shop with a cool cavernous atmosphere with a pool table and DJ booth. Big shop, even if thats not the case with the menu. More for discerning hash smokers than weed smokers, but the hash is CHEAP AND EXCELLENT. Check out the above and the IOL for 12, for 1g.

Het Balloonnetje
1g AK-47 - 7,
Nice buzz before catching a movie at the Kriterion. Weed and a documentary on heavy metal. Is Amsterdam Heaven? God no, but Heaven better have weed and heavy metal, otherwise Ill take Mokum.

28/9 - Thu
Grey Area
1g Grey Mist - 7,
Great indica, just as youd suspect from GA.

29/9 - Fri
Grey Area
3.5g Grey Haze - 33,50
Got more than I was planning Cause I heard they were almost out of the shipment, and as I mentioned before, its a staple for me, as is Grey Area.

Baba
1g White Widow - 7,75

While the WW is as good as it should be, Baba has become my favorite new commercial shop for atmosphere, and I prefer their souvenir/headshop. The Hindu decor, with a huge carving of Ganesha and good view of Warmoestraat, it uneqiviocally rocks.

Blueberry and I tore it up at Old Church and Baba tonight. Shes definitely knows good shit, my friends. The baggies she collected over the past couple of days was all, keen buys on her part. Kudos for splitting the best Shiva joint I ever had.

30/9 - Sat
WW Indica
1g Shiva - 7,5
Beautiful bud from a brand new refill bag. Renewed my interest in the strain. Great deal and a very cool shop

Evening in Haarlem with Blueberry, Bilzur & Bec.

1/10 - Sun
Amnesia
1g Amnesia Haze - 11,
BIG CHANNELS MEET - jBomb, Blueberry, oracle (I think I have your sunglasses), Bilzur and Bec, Peteypox, Ron, and Mile High Denver. True tokers, all.

Grey Area
3.5g Grey Haze - 33.50
Just stocking up.

WEED/HASH OTW - Though there are many great weeds this week, honors go to the Casablanca Maroc at Trinity that may as well have been Ice-O. If you want cheap deals and GREAT HASH, the shops outside the center are the way to go. Its a big, cool shop too. Cavernous with a DJ booth for weekends, Im assuming. IOL at 12, a gram as well.

COFFEESHOP OTW - Rokerij III is your unexpected COTW. I got some great NL5X-Haze (courtesy of Indica) and enjoyed a great view of the Amstel. As you may know, a C/S with a decent view in this town is a special thing. Intimate place with very cool art on the walls.

LEAST FAVORITE WEED/HASH OTW - Nothin near bad this week. Again, Im becoming very selective and my preferences are obvious, of course for every new bag of Grey haze I get, I dont get something Ive never had, so variety is waning. Strictly out of lack of choice, White Widow from Baba, though its very good for the more commercial shops, and my new favorite Warmoestraat shop. Just need to go when the techno isnt blasting.

A bunch of great sessions with Channelites and ACDers, this week. Cheers to everyone I mentioned and everyone I may have forgotten. I hope next week holds more of the same in store. Requests, as always, are welcome
