My Top 5 Coffeeshops in Amsterdam with a Map! The Best Coffeeshops in Amsterdam 2014

One of the most common questions I get asked is “what are the best Coffeeshops in Amsterdam?” or “what coffeeshop has the best weed?, “where do I need to go to get the best weed in Amsterdam?” or a question like this. It’s a pretty straight forward question really, what is the best coffeeshop in Amsterdam? But the answer is a bit more complicated.

A lot of it comes down to the type of atmosphere and “vibe” you like in a coffeeshop. However that being said there are a few coffeeshops that consistantly have the best Cannabis; weed and hash, in Amsterdam.

So I won’t ramble on…here it is:

Hi Everyone! Everyone High?

It’s been a fun month here in Amsterdam, another month of sweet sticky buds, bubbling hash and mind blowing bong hits. I thought I’d sit down and go through the last months stash, and try and pick out My Top 10 of the Weed and Hash in Amsterdam in March 2011. So if you are coming to visit Amsterdam anytime soon you will know what’s good.

So here goes…


1. Acapulco Gold from Amnesia

Wow is all I can say. Beautiful red and gold coloured buds with a sweet fruity hashy taste and smell. Genetics from the old-skool.

Acapulco Gold

2. Lemon Larry from The Green Place

A great cut of OG Kush. This one packs a very fresh lemon smell and taste. A good strong smoke. Ideal for kush lovers.


3. Jack Flash from Rusland

Very uplifting high. Perfect for getting the day started or for when you need something to give you a boost. Great up high with no crash or sleepiness. Full on sativa genetics.

4. Chiesel from The Dampkring

Cheese crossed with Diesel. What a taste! Like a skunky garage. A good addition to the well loved cheese family. Well worth a try.

5. Hawaiian Snow from The Greenhouse

Recommended by a friend. A good uplifting Sativa that turns into a heavy indica after a few smokes. Good fresh flavour.

6. Jack Herer from The Green Place

I smoke Jack Herer most days. A great Sativa with a bit of a indica twist. A clear head high with a nice warm indica buzz. Lovely!! So smoke up in honour of Jack!

7. Amnesia from Mellow Yellow

A great example of the classic Amnesia Haze strain, available in most coffeeshops. A good well balanced, heavy hitting strain. You can’t go wrong with Amnesia Haze.

8. Super Chocolope Haze from The Rokerij

An interested cross of Chocolope and Super Silver Haze. This gives it the great chocolatey slighty fruity Chocolope taste with an improved sativa high, thanks to the SSH.

9. Grey Berry from The Grey Area

This is some tasty bud. Bubblegum crossed with Blueberry. Sweet, fruity, stoned.

10. Honey Bee from The Dampkring

A very sweet tasting bud, recommended by the guys at the Dampkring. A nice hybrid with a nice high but it was the sweet honey like flavour that got my attention.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading and hope this will be helpful to a few people planning trips to Amsterdam.

My Top 5 Hash will be coming soon!

As always,

Peace and Pot,
