It has started! We have changed our background to orange to support the Dutch Team and finally the first game has been played. Today will be the day that the Dutch might be able to have at least some revenge on the Spanish team after one of the most frustrating final games ever played in a World Cup.

We all heard about how THC and CBD can help cancer patients. The use of cannabis for both medical and recreational purpose has a long and rich history. The plant has been used and cultivated since the dawn of recorded history and has long been held in highest regards. It has only been within the last one-hundred years that marijuana has faced prohibition – largely due to the mudslinging of politicians and industrialists. Fortunately, in the last few years cannabis has undergone a resurrection, not lastly due to many scientific studies confirming its medicinal powers. Read more…

Tip: Bring Amsterdam home
If you are wanting to experience Amsterdam in all its glory, you should come over. But of course you can get a little bit of the joys the city has to offer at your own home. Just order your favorite paddo’s (magic mushrooms) or cannabis seeds from the internet. Shipping straight from Amsterdam! Quality and safe and discreet shipping guaranteed and it might be a better idea than stuffing some stuff between you butt-cheeks on your way home.
The Dutch are a particular people. It seems they don’t really have any specific Dutch kind of people, but you would be wrong to assume this. When getting to know a few more Dutch people and learning about the history a bit, it seems that there is a lot of interesting stuff that most foreigners will never know about. Like movies!
Since the ban of magic mushrooms in the Netherlands in 2008, magic truffles have been getting more and more popular amongst locals but also tourists. Many smartshops have been selling them for years, but nowadays you are able to buy them in almost any tourist shop as well. This might be nice for tourists looking for a quick fix, but it is not such a good thing in general, as most of those shops don’t even realize what they are selling to their random customers.

Partying should be a party and not end up in death. Obvious right? Well for most of us a beer and a joint is enough to get them through a party, but some people like to experiment with other drugs. Of course we are not telling you to never try XTC or ‘Molly’ as some people like to call it nowadays, but be careful as you never really know what you might get. There are some dangerous XTC pills going around in the Netherlands at the moment so be aware of a round pink pill that has a mirrored question-mark. Read more.

How marijuana affects the brain. We all know that something happens to the brain if you consume cannabis. If you smoke it, eat it, inhale it , drink it, doesn’t matter how, but something changes up there. The effects are not similar for everybody of course. I myself sometimes become one with the couch, while other times my brain just goes berserk and with a speed of 1000 kph, it wants me to think of a million things and do a million more, very fast. But how does that work? Click on the image below to check out the full explanation on this great work of art!
Amsterdam is a great city with many things to do and to see. But what to be careful with and to be aware of when visiting this city? Pick pocketing, taxi drivers, drug dealers, just to name a few. Please have a look at our Amsterdam Travel Tips and Warnings page.
It has been a strange year so far in the South of the Netherlands as by law the coffeeshops in some cities in the South of the Netherlands are not allowed to sell cannabis to people who are not registered as citizens of the Netherlands. But the local coffeeshop association decided to sell to tourists on Sunday as it was National Liberation Day and it seemed appropriate to not ban tourists from the shops.
Unfortunately the local government didn’t agree with the action and people got arrested in during a police raid in one of the local coffeeshops.
