I’ve seen and commented on a few threads lately about vaping bud and hash. It reminded me that I discovered this chart a while back which I found to be quite helpful in understanding the different boiling points of cannabinoids, achieving the entourage effect etc. Especially useful for medical users, so thought I would share it with you all. Peace and respect.
I previously did some research on this, and while benzene does start to be released at that temperature, the amounts are negligible, especially when compared to combustion which is many magnitudes higher.
Also important to remember that you are exposed to benzene in everyday life via petrol and diesel fumes, wood smoke, paint, glue and many other ways.
Would like to see some more in-depth research in this area.
Haven't been for about 10 years after being an every couple of month visitor. My all time go-to has always been Grey Area - in Singel. Can be a mission to find but for me the original standard for what was in Dam. Green Place has also been mentioned is a chill and good menu (think I recall Batman @ €22!!!!!) not like the old days of €20 for a 3.5...Abraxas I love, and get into Spuistraat some nice little places there inc. Kadinsky. Enjoy.
The first place I tried in Amsterdam was a little place opposite Vondel Park simply called Vondel. It was a nice reintroduction to weed for me after years without it. I honestly can't remember prices but I thought the atmosphere was nicely chilled and the clientele mainly seemed to be local students. If you're hungry Vegan Junk Food is incredible!
For bud quality and top smokes head to Borenjongens. Borenjongens have changed the game in Amsterdam massively with their own Amsterdam Genetics. Their coffee shops are always rammed so best to buy your smokes and head somewhere else to smoke.
Other good places for product is Grey Area and Barneys. Barneys is a good place to smoke.
I would then take your weed and head to Amnesia personally though. Proper chilled vibes in there. Tweede Kramer and Kandinsky are great too.
Here are a couple of impressions from my Amsterdam trip. Maybe they will be of help.to future travelers.
Kadinsky - cozy atmosphere, lovely view out of the front windows, sits at the front windows. "Big Buddha Cheese", "AK47" and "Gelato" - all had a nice quality to them and were easy and enjoyable to smoke. The chosen music was not always to my taste, but they also played some nice jazzy or soul tracks. I also tried the space cake there - it really glued me down to the sit. All in all it was my favourite
Easy Times - clublike atmosphere, even with a DJ, the stuff seemed stressed and it was really crowded. I couldnt really harmonize with the vibes of the place. They have a good selection of weed. "Tangerine cookies" - really nice smoke!
1ehulp - orientally stylized. Was full, when I came the first day. On the second day I got in. There are three levels and a couple of small alcoves... For me the place felt a kind of narrow, but it might have been the effect of the herbs... "Gorilla Skittlez"... Bought and rolled, hadnt tried, yet. They have moon rocks. But you have to walk a bit to get there.
Paradox - it felt like a student coffee shop (not in a bad way) The prices are cheaper compared to other places. The stuff is nice and friendly. It was the coffee shop with the most light... And I was told that they are famous for their space cake (1gr in each slice). I got some, but hadnt tried it yet.
Hans Brinker Hostel - cheaper way to spend the night in a bed than in a hotel. Breakfast is included and was good. They have a bar and a club. The rooms have been clean. I think especially for groups who can book a whole room with 6 or 8 beds for themselves it is a good place to stay.
Thanks for.all the advices! Cheers to everybody! :-)
Hey, if you fancy getting away from the tourist areas try the Westerpark district.
A couple of really nice Coffee shops in that area, first is Coffeeshop Chaputeau, it’s just a walk in service but the prices are insanely good, quality of the smoke is high and there always a line of friendly locals to chat to. A couple of streets away from that is a Moroccan coffee shop called Coffeeshop Freedom (this one has seats),small but high quality menu and the hash is top class. Again mostly full of friendly of locals, highly recommend. Plenty of nice restaurants in the area too. Well worth it if you fancy a break from the chaos.
Not sure when was posted I am New to lb. If you have already been I hope you had a great time I absolutely love the place. My favourite is coffee shop jonny. Only 2 seats or something so pay and go place. Just a mention for voyagers personally never had any issue at this place always first stop because of proximity to central station.
Some are more up market than others. Some have higher prices in the more tourist areas. I had the best sativa ever there. We were there again recently. Such a great city in general. I felt safe there and had great experiences wandering about till 4am. Glasgow is much more dangerous at night. Just don't get too wasted And be careful if you try anything in a smart shop. Some of that stuff is very strong.
My ex was dutch and I've been there too many times to remember, 420 cafe mate it's got boom bud and its not as loud and cheesy as most of them, used to be cat that always attacked me, probably it's dead now, but yeah 420 cafe for me cant beat it, it used to be a pub, sitting at the bar with their bong is where you wanna be , also I forget the name but get a train to Rotterdam head for the bilderberg hotel , has no seats but the smoke is next level , plus it's good to get out of Amsterdam Rotterdam in my opinion is a better city just not as many coffee shops
Awesome recommendation! However bear in mind they have 2 shops. I would recommend visiting the original one on Singel, previously known as the Dutch Flowers. All product is the same, but the shop itself is in a quieter area and a much nicer place to sit and enjoy your smokes! It's been a family favourite for 3 generations now!
Grey area was good it’s small and gets super busy and we happened upon a cafe called flower power, we brought these chocolate Bon Bons they were so thick and chocolaty but when you opened them up they were bright green, the guy who sold it to us was like just eat half, don’t eat a whole one and see how you get on. Me in my infinite wisdom thought fuck that I will be fine and ate the whole thing and woke up the next morning with recollection of the night before, my wife said I’d just passed out. Twat on tour but there we go I got excited I’d never been to Amsterdam before. Have a fucking awesome time.
Been a while, but I was very impressed with Greenhouse Koffeeshop in the 'dam (it's one of the most well known ones and was friendly). Very good quality menu. Had some Organic Trainwreck there that was amazing, even though I'm usually more of an Indica fan.
Not every Koffeeshop in the Dam is quality. Some sell crap, surprisingly. Others are weirdly hostile to foreigners. Seek out the good ones - there are loads.
Agreed mate! Had a true Strawberry Haze there too which was different to seed versions commonly available. Claimed to be 100% sativa (cant confirm or refute the genetics ) but fuck me i walked out with eyes lile id be on disco biscuits lol and set me up for a great afternoon walk ill tell you that. Best thing about Kadinskys is that great window open wide, just watching the world go by. Spent many an hour in that window as a solo smoker and is awesome for some people watching where you see some very interesting lol things BH
That sounds like an awesome Amsterdam moment, there’s some special stuff to be found in the right places. I bet those Dutch growers have some amazing cuts. But oh man, those window seats are the best, reading that took me back there for a moment... ahh, good times, can’t wait for summer.
1E Hulp and Green Place are 2 of the best Smokeys and Bulldogs are shit but plenty of other great ones too. Haarlem and Zandoort are also worth a short trip on the train from Amsterdam loads of great Coffeeshops there too and bit quieter and cheaper.
Definitely 1eHulp, always have a great selection of quality bud for average prices of €6-€14. And oh man their edibles taste so good. Too good infact, it'll make you want to eat 4 slices of their cake in one sitting! (p.s do NOT eat 4 slices in a sesh)
That's a shame but your defo have fun mate. I got stuck in a gin house my last time there it's in on of the side streets from the bulldog the red light district one lol it's the oldest gin house in the world check it out if you can.
Can anyone recommend a smallish, electronic (don’t want to have to whip out a butane torch in a pub garden) vapouriser that’s capable of handling hash? Usually charas rather than pollen. Cheers biggaz!
I got the crafty about a year ago and use it mainly for bud. It does a really good job, you can hide it in your palm and if you have nice quality dry-ish flower that crumbles nice between your fingers, the effects from it are really good. Better quality medicine than a pipe/bong/joint. I’ve also tried it with hash, Nepalese soft and Moroccan dry sifts, good quality and shit quality and failed to get any good results. Tried a few methods, with the supplied concentrate pad, the dosing capsule, mixed in with bud and just on its own and it’s nowhere near like having a pipe of hashish. I also found low quality soft hashes would melt through the screens, which will probably fuck the heating system up eventually. I would highly recommend Storz and Bickel as a company, my first vape stopped working due to a faulty power button and they replaced it with a brand new vape tracked from Germany to UK very quickly. Had no problems at all with the current one. Hope you find a good hash vape DB and if you have any luck I’d be happy to know
Any that go to a higher temp will do, the trouble is the mess that melted hash makes. I'd recommend using a little degummed hemp fibre around your hash to protect whatever-the-vape's chamber. Or, my preferred method, a Mighty/Crafty using the little dosing capsule's they make - just have to bin 'em afterwards. But truth be told, I still prefer smoking hash... it can be done, but the pressed stuff just becomes a faff to vape effectively.
The dosing capsules are cheap, disposable containers that perfectly fit the Mighty/Crafty/Plenty chambers (available in packs of 50 I think). They're made from aluminium with tiny holes punched across their surface - you fill them with herb (or indeed, hash), put the lid on and drop the whole capsule into the vape chamber. Once it's vaped up, you just take the capsule out and chuck the whole thing (you can re-use them if you're careful, but tricky with melty hash).
New to this but want to vape hash. YouTube is not particularly helpful. Are there hash vape pens ? Or advice on vaping hash ? Just finding weed a bit to strong so hash seems the way forward, using as an alcohol substitute. Thanks in advance.
Had been struggling with this myself. I finally found a way that works well. DynaVap with some hemp fiber works great for some harder hash, the soft stuff you can rosin press. You can check my profile for writeups on this if you are interested.
However I think heating it and crumbling it would achieve similar results. But the dynavap you can go a bit passed the click, like 2-4 seconds is great for hash.
The first vape I bought was a vapman. At the time I wanted something for vaping hash. It needs a butane lighter but I did some research and it fitted the bill. An awesome vape for hash. The flavour was unreal.
I’ve tried so many and failed tbh, you need the right hash firstly, soft pliable hash just doesn’t work end of, get a nice dry hard hash and experiment, I’m using a hard hash in my Flowerpot with the Weedeater head and it’s working a treat.
I use the Mighty, scrunch and bend a 20mm gauze into a sort of bowl which fits inside the chamber, keeps it clean. Fill the gauze bowl, generally works better if broken into smaller pieces. Vape at higher temps 390 - 410 f. Nice warm hash stone. Boundless Terp Pen is quite cheap, I hear it works well with concentrates but is somewhat inefficient with the product. There are some decent threads on reddit related to the subject, definitely not a lot of info around on the subject as I also checked around at one time. Have only vaped mid range hash, different from smoking, you'll have to compare and contrast for yourself, I like both. A bong with or without ice cubes, or glass pipe full of hash, are nice, too.
Well had a nose at this the other day. Gotta say a big thanks as I took the plunge and got a crafty. Brilliant! Such a welcomed change, love the high and the taste is insane! I had one of the first vapes years and years ago and it was useless. Now this things on a whole different level. Unfortunately the battery is rubbish and the cartridge is to small, solution was to order the Mighty. Anyone want to buy a crafty lol better if you’re out and about I suppose but for a longer session vape it looks like the mighty all the way.
Thanks this was a greatly received post and responses spot on.
You’re right bazza, the taste and flavour is on another level. I really do think the effects are better as well, it really opened my eyes to the importance temperatures play in releasing all the cannabinoids properly. For vaping dry herb I think the crafty/mighty are up there with the best you can buy at the minute portable wise. I think the only difference between the two as you say is the battery on the crafty doesn’t last that long but it’s more concealable than the mighty which has the bigger battery, but I think the bowls are the same size. Only thing is I haven't had much success for a decent hit using hash and I’ve tried loads of methods, but I haven’t tried patbatemans way so will give that a go for sure.
Alright seagull, there are a few hash vape pens about, I’ve not tried any to recommend to you, but I have vaped hash using the crafty vaporiser by Storz and Bickel. It’s more of a handheld vape than a pen. It works ok for hash but to be honest I find hash is better smoked in a pipe and weed has better effects when vaped. This is different for everyone though. Also Seagull just so you know, unless the hash you’re going to be vaping is low quality hash is generally stronger than weed, as in essence hash is a concentrated form of cannabis. Maybe the weed which you’ve found to be too strong was really high in THC and had low or even zero CBD, which is common in today’s weed market. It’s maybe worth looking for a strain with a good balance of THC/CBD to help as an alcohol substitute. Or if it’s deffo the hash you prefer look for a budget bar which will be milder effects wise, as some of the hashes out there are potent.
To cut a very long story short, Super Silver Haze is my strain and I’m looking for it in high quality hash/block form. Any connects would be greatly appreciated or any vendors who are offered it by their suppliers can know that I would make a fair sized purchase depending on price and quality. Also it would be interesting to hear any other thoughts/experiences with SSH... I’ve been told it contains genetics that is found in the prescribed medicine Sativex, which is maybe why I’ve found it to be the most beneficial strain of cannabis for me. Peace and respect. Johnson420
I’ll have to get myself over the water soon to see our enlightened Dutch brothers at Boerejongens, they sell block that is out of this world. Yeah I’d have to agree Nova, I thought RB’s SSH was decent. It vaporises nice. He seems to be a very good vendor as well, I’ve had zero issues. I’m currently waiting on some Amnesia haze dry sift hashish from a different vendor, which is the first strain specific hash I’ve bought on here. To be fair I can’t fault the budget stuff I’ve bought off various vendors so far either, it does what it says on the tin. I just find the strain specific hash is easier to tailor to my needs... If I could get a nice quality haze hash as well as an indica dominant cbd rich hash on the regular from the same vendor, I’d be a very happy and loyal customer with that repeat prescription! :)
Like dust from the Gods. I often wish I lived there Splashum, I noticed a lot of coffee shops looking for staff and I’d be there right now living a nicely medicated existence if I could, but in my foolish youth I made decisions that have shackled me with commitments and responsibility. I’m hoping the amnesia haze hash I’ve ordered appears soon (think there’s a postal slowness issue that’s affecting others not just me) and I’ve definitely learned two things on here already, 1: If possible order well before you run out. 2: Although I’ve never in my life known a 1st class letter or package that I’ve either sent or received to get lost or stolen, it’s always worth getting tracked postage for peace of mind.
