Amsterdam coffee shops are for getting high

For most young westerners, there are two major attractions in Amsterdam: the Red Light District, and the coffee shops. You might imagine that Amsterdam coffee shops are just like cafes in any city, but one look at the menu and you’ll realize you’re not in Kansas anymore. From discount ganja bargains to celebrated top-shelf cultivars like Northern Lights, Jack Herer, and Purple Kush, you’ll have a huge range of flower to choose from in over 250 coffee shops throughout the city. There is also extra-potent hashish for sale at most shops, and sometimes even cannabis-infused treats like lollipops, brownies, and soft drinks. While American cities like San Francisco, Portland and Denver are just dipping their toes into the recreational marijuana market, the Netherlands has regulated the legal sale of cannabis for more than 40 years. So whether you’re an old-hand at smoking or a curious first-timer, Amsterdam coffee shops are destinations worth visiting during your Netherlands visit.

Never wonder what to visit in Amsterdam

Amsterdam coffee shops are perfect venues for meeting other travelers with interests similar to yours. Cannabis crosses cultural boundaries and is enjoyed by all types of people, from Ethiopian rastas to Scandinavian metal-heads. No matter what their origins, marijuana smokers know what to visit in Amsterdam, and it is without a doubt the coffee shops. Once you’ve seen all the museums and cruised all the canals, you might be wondering what to visit in Amsterdam next. Take my advice and drop in on one of the coffee shops. You won’t regret it.

Amsterdam coffee shops are for everyone

Amsterdam’s famous coffee shops cater to every taste and can fit any budget. Whether you’re after a sativa, an indica-dominant strain, hybrids, edibles or just a place to get off your feet, Amsterdam coffee shops are just the ticket to make your Amsterdam trip complete. You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase cannabis products in the Netherlands, so make sure to bring your ID or passport with you when you visit coffee shops. It’s also important to remember that cannabis sold in Amsterdam is often much more potent than what you smoke back home, so use moderation in your consumption. Most of all, remember to have fun and enjoy your time in one of the loveliest and unique cities in Europe.
