GOING GREEN IN AMSTERDAM
Here’s how to make the most out of your Amsterdam coffeeshop visits: Shop around. Amsterdam has hundreds of coffeeshops to choose from, which differ widely in terms of atmosphere and offerings. Don’t feel obliged to stick with a dingy hole-in-the-wall simply because it’s the first coffeeshop you’ve come across.
Go easy. The strains of weed in Amsterdam can be quite strong, so be careful not to over-indulge. Stay hydrated and err on the side of caution to prevent any mishaps.
Ask questions. The menus can befuddle even the most seasoned smoker, so enquire about the various joints and products on offer.
No smoking. Many coffeeshops don’t allow the smoking of tobacco products, even when combined with cannabis, so enquire about the regulations before you light up.
