My Amsterdam Review

When we’re talking vapes The Amsterdam Company is the real deal. These vapes are smooth, taste great, contain no pesticides and there’s a extensive selection with several varieties to choose from. Vapes aren’t the only thing The Amsterdam Company does great either! They also offer edibles, pre-rolls, flower, concentrates and other accessories. Personally, I’ve been blessed to try out quite a few and here’s what I think about them:

Vanilla de Barcelona

I really love my indica strains and The Amsterdam Company’s Vanilla de Barcelona is like a vanilla ice cream on a hot day, with being a mixture of Vanilla Kush, Cream Caramel and  Animal Cookies it kind of makes a lot of sense. You feel the effect instantly because this oil cartridge is strong but smooth, solventless and I just love the pen too, being long and elegant, like a cigarette holder in an old movie!

Super Sour Apple

Super Sour Apple is a sativa oil vape with live rosin and has 99% THC! So this one gets you touching clouds in seconds to say the least. Or as they say, you get “Amsterdam High in the USA!” Personally I love sour flavors and The Amsterdam Company always delivers on flavors that justify their name! Taste great and for me, it creates a creative high in a haze of bliss. Delicious pen for sure.

Pineapple Girl

Pineapple Girl has to be my favorite of all The Amsterdam Company’s vapes. It taste just as it’s called like a sweet pineapple. Being an indica this one does cause what I like to call the “couch-lock effect,”which is perfect to enjoy after a long day or while couch-gating on your off days, which happens to be one my favorite activities…right!?!

THC Gummies

Being the type to make my own edibles with cannabutter, which I thought gave me some tolerance to edibles, proved to not be true because these THC gummies made from cannabis tincture packed a whole different punch! Like a straight knock out to be exact. And like all things Amsterdam Company, they taste great too.


I’ve only personally tried the gummies which contain 200mg THC but The Amsterdam Company does offer a wide variety of options from brownies to fruit roll ups to macaroons and so much more.

Pineapple Express Pre-roll 

The white ash says it all! Above is the the Pineapple Express pre-roll I tried out too! Also tasted The Amsterdam Company’s Blue Dream pre-roll. Both taste, burn and were rolled perfect. With pre-rolls and flower available, along with concentrates, pen charges, grinders and all sorts of other swag I have to say I’m really loving The Amsterdam Company. They offer free, fast, discreet shipping throughout the US. If only they sold the cartridges without the pen since I have a lot of pens already, but hey the more the merrier!

Free your Mind One Puff at a Time

Do you ever notice the littlest things when your high? Yesterday I saw my first butterfly of the year and if I wasn’t smoking I probably wouldn’t have seen it. It was sitting on the building next door and was of similar color. It got me thinking, what do butterflies do all day? You know besides fly and sit on things…I don’t know but I do know it’s very relaxing to smoke and watch the world around us. With the weather being nice now and summer coming soon I invite you to get outside and free your mind one puff at a time.

As for where, when and how? I’ve got a few suggestions :

Hiking

And when I say hiking I do mean walking around and smoking a lot of weed in the woods. When hiking however one must come prepared. Have all your blunts or joints pre-rolled before you get there. Or at least before you get out the car because it can be windy and there is no greater cannabis crime than losing your weed. Bring snacks, sandwiches, water and bug spray. You don’t want to be 2 hours away from civilization with no food when the munchies kick in.  And you didn’t hear it here but get off the trails. I know, I know, they say you can’t, your not suppose to…blah blah blahh…get off the trails, just watch out for poison ivy. One of my favorite kick it spots involves jumping a fence hiking about a mile in from there to the top of this waterfall. And when I sit there and smoke with the sound of the water, the view that makes you feel like your on top of the world…that’s when you realize that it’s these little moments that we live for.

Jet Ski/Kayak/Boating

Water is just one of those things I love and combining it with my other love, Mary Jane, well that’s the best! Here’s the trick to this. In a boat or jet ski you’ll have a water tight stash spot somewhere by the steering wheel/handle usually.

In a kayak you won’t but either way I highly recommend putting your pre-rolled blunts/joints in a ziplock baggie. Then if you have the stash, put it in there too and if not just secure it in a pocket or in my case the inside lining of my bikini top. You don’t want your weed to get wet. Then get out there. Make some waves, circle around and hit those same waves you made. Trust me it is so fun! Then cut the engine. Just sit out there like a buoy and spark up. Your probably thinking why not just smoke on the beach? Well I’m not saying don’t do that too. But try this out, I’m not sure why but when you smoke on the water and you are swaying with the waves it feels like you’re on air.

Drive-In

There aren’t many left out there but they are out there. There is only one in my area. To find one in your area check out this directory where you can search by state: Drive in Movies.

So picture it. You and your significant other sitting in the car in the dark. The windows are tinted and you have some dank ass herb while watching a horror or two? What do you thinks gonna happen?

Truly it feels like you’re in a movie watching a movie hot boxing to the max. You can go in your PJ’s if you want. They sell the munchies right there or you can bring your own. I’m not sure if all drive-ins do it but mines shows two movies. It’s a private setting for the most part. They are always located in very dark areas so you can see the stars on the screen and in the sky. And maybe you get a little lucky too (if you know what I mean).

And last but not least…

Camping

There is no better why to connect with nature than going out to the middle of no where, lighting a campfire and smoking some ganja. Being off the grind, with no cell service, no neighbors, nothing except nature and all of it’s beauty is a perfect setting to inhale nature’s medicine, clear your mind and free your soul.

 

 

Lead by Example: Healthy Smoking Habits for the Kids

The question isn’t will my kids smoke weed, it’s when and how? Because we all know it’s inevitable. My hope however is that the new generation strictly vapes. Because vaping is healthier. And we want the best for our kids don’t we?

These are the facts, cannabis isn’t bad for you, it’s actually great and has lots of benefits. But the act of smoking is. When one smokes harsh toxins are released that can damage your lungs and cause cancer. Haven’t you ever felt like a blunt was harsh on you?

I’ve smoked a lot of blunts, and still do.  But I’ve switched to hemp wraps instead of tobacco blunts because all those Phillies, Swishers and Garcia Vegas were getting too harsh on my throat. Though I do see a significant difference with hemp wraps, there are motivating reasons for the new generation to want to vape instead of smoke:

  1. The cannabis oils and concentrates, which is what you’d vape, are stronger and more potent. Giving you that high feeling faster and more efficiently.
  2. There’s barely any odor which means vaping weed makes it less likely you’ll get caught.
  3. You don’t need a lighter meaning no risk of breathing in any butane or noxious gases from your lighter, starting a fire or worse yet someone stealing your lighter. (joking on that last part)
  4. Vape pens deliver clean vapor packed with THC eliminating the smoking risks.
  5. And you save money because vapes last much longer.

Vaping is the way to go for sure. But this how I see things going down with my kids. They are going to want to try smoking. Their mother is Smokette after all and they’ll probably try to smoke my stash.

My plan? To have plenty of hemp wraps to roll, hemp wick to light and vape pens to “smoke” right there along side my stash that definitely includes cannabis oils. Because we can’t control other people, not even our own kids, but we can lead by example, preach and share healthier pothead habits. And most importantly, love them no matter what.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the stoner mommies out there and as always stay lit!

 



Cuban Tech

This Hialeah raised team is killing it on the west coast with their bad ass hash!

It’s true the Instagram names “Cuban grower” and “Qban hash queen” was what originally grabbed my attention, I am biased and tend to naturally be drawn towards anything with the word “Cuban” in it, being one and all. But these guys have got skillzzzzzzzz…

Seeing is believing so let’s just do a little show and tell here:

Cookies and Cream single source water hash grown by the Cuban Hash Queen and separated by Cubans Full Melt

Mint Chocolate Chip live resin also grown by the Cuban Queen hashed by the Cuban Grower

Headstash pressed out by the Cuban Grower

And now the Cuban Grower is managing the new Critical 710 California facility  and here it the first ever Critical x Cuban sauce collaboration

These guys are living the dream, or at least my dream.  This year their Cookies and Cream Drysift won 3rd in the High Times SoCal Cannabis Cup for non-solvent hash.  In 2016 their Black Mamba drysift won 2nd in NorCal and Cookies and Cream won 1st in Michigan.  As the Cuban Grower said on Instagram:

damn it feels good to be a gangster

I’d love to join the squad. The day your hiring let me know I’ll pack up and head west asap.

And for all you dab, shatter, live resin, hash fans if you see this face on a banner:

They got fire!
