Its been a few years since i have been but the best shops last time were MrK&co and family first and also I had a great time in Reefer - they had some fire dutch and import. for me its more about the atmosphere - I am a chilled stoner and cant stand the ultra busy and loud shops.
1eHulp ('First Aid') is a great choice, and not the only good reason for walking out of the centre, it's in a cool part of town. All the best bits of the Dam lie beyond the Prinsengracht. Flower Power round the corner on the Rozengracht is my fave, I discovered Manala Cream in there. Yum!
been twice this year, babas coffee shop was my personal favourite, good price dutch, great seating and a ball vape ready for you to use if you would like at no extra cost. It’s not in central (15 min bus from station) but i also absolutely love basjoes if you’re lucky enough to sit in the booth.
I like to buy my stuff in the popular ones (Terps army, Family first,grey area ect) then sit in the less popular/places & you can get food in some. Like hillstreetbooze. Bulldog lounge, La grotte. This is a great method tried and tested there’s a few others but I can’t remember the names ect.

If the Doctor isn't prescribing, there is probably a reason.
We are running out of viable antibiotics in the world as antibiotic resistant bacteria increase.
We area already seeing many deaths because of so called "super bugs" https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-bug-idUKL3167831520070331 that are a direct result of unrestrained and misapplied use of antibiotics.
Obviously there are a lot of tin foil hat types who what the WHO. But here is their guidance: https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/antibiotic-resistance
Here is the relevant bit: Individuals
To prevent and control the spread of antibiotic resistance, individuals can:
• Only use antibiotics when prescribed by a certified health professional. • Never demand antibiotics if your health worker says you don’t need them. • Always follow your health worker’s advice when using antibiotics. • Never share or use leftover antibiotics. • Prevent infections by regularly washing hands, preparing food hygienically, avoiding close contact with sick people, practising safer sex, and keeping vaccinations up to date. Prepare food hygienically, following the WHO Five Keys to Safer Food (keep clean, separate raw and cooked, cook thoroughly, keep food at safe temperatures, use safe water and raw materials) and choose foods that have been produced without the use of antibiotics for growth promotion or disease prevention in healthy animals.
Non specific/topical Antibiotics are anyway really bad for you. A lot of scientists now think that a disrupted biome is the cause of many ills including the rise of autoimmune illnesses, but also problems with sleep, skin, mental health problems and all the rest.
Antibiotics should be a last and not a first resort.
If you need repeated doses of the same antibiotic to solve a problem such as tonsillitis, then antibiotics are probably not the solution.
If you are buying antibiotics from anywhere other than an approved supplier (particularly in the so called developed world) there is a significant chance you are getting substandard or counterfeit goods anyway -https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9394205/#:~:text=Of%20the%2013%20555%20samples,366%2F3511)%2C%20respectively.
Think it’s more for relaxation/sleeping than partying. It was a sacred/worshipped thing as part of their creation myth. I recall some UFO/Ancient Tech people claiming a lotus flower hieroglyph was a giant lightbulb 😂 photo attached
I personally microdose, but larger doses can be very heavy. I don't use blue lotus though. In the morning it's a great mood elevator and energiser. At night, a great sleep aid. However, handle with care and ensure the shroom has been fully decarbed.
Review of Bulldog's 'Amnesia Flash' (Premium and Budget)
I recovered from the latest covid/flu/whatever and got back on LB just in time for Bulldog’s latest grow. ‘Amnesia Flash’ by Anesia Seeds, the same company behind Druid’s Magic’s last grows which were so well received. I tried DM’s Dankberry and Frozen Black Cherry and I think there are definite similarities between those grows and this one.
Very nice looking medium-sized buds (up to 2g), tight, dense and heavy. Slightly squashed due to top level stealth. Professionally manicured and coated with fine crystals - some sparkly, glassy-looking patches where the trichomes have squashed together against the stealth, very attractive 😊. Fresh and still slightly tacky inside. Smell has high notes of pine and citrus against a dank, earthy background. Smokes very smoothly. The taste - like DM’s recent grows - isn’t bold or flavourful, it's more a subtle sour citrus/grapefruit flavour and a faint skunkiness. It’s a different taste but still pleasant. The high (again, like the DM crops) is very special and refreshingly different. From the name I’d expected a sativa and was pleasantly surprised to see that it’s actually a 70% indica, much more to my taste! But, for me and my smoking buddy, there’s still definitely something of an initial sativa hit in this smoke! We’ve had a couple of days smoking this exclusively and the first few spliffs on both days gave us energetic tingles in the head and down through the body, and a slight increase in head chatter, effects I’d normally associate with a strong sativa. First effects include a slight rushiness and mild euphoria. It gives a bright, creative feeling with clarity of thought and it’s a positive, ‘up’ high, happy and sociable. Those first effects quickly calm into a very nice, mellow and relaxing body stone whilst still being sociable, and we both experienced nice, rolling waves of brightness, good humour and mild euphoria. With more smokes, the rushy/euphoric aspects melt away and the mellowness and body relaxation grows, making it more what you’d expect from a 70% indica. It’s a very clean high and definitely stronger than I expected, and again comparable to the DM grows. I’ve a decent tolerance and I’m seeing it as more of an evening/night smoke - it’s a lovely, strong smoke for the daytime too, you can still be ‘functional’ on it but I certainly wouldn't be able to hide that I was on it, especially with those initial sativa-like effects! My ability to speak coherently seems to go out the window nowadays when I’m on sativas! This indica hits very differently to the 70% indicas I’m used to and it’s a very nice, refreshing change. I’m still learning and I’ve enjoyed having my expectations turned on their heads by this excellent, top quality smoke!
BUDGET (the best value item on LB?!!):
Obviously very similar to the premium 😉. The buds aren’t as well-formed but they’re still dense and heavy, there’s nothing scraggly and no stalks. The manicure, as you’d expect, is not quite as tight but it’s only tiny leaves that remain and they have crystals. And, for a budget item, these buds are big! It’s very hard to find anything smaller than my thumbnail, with some buds being similar in size to the premium buds (with a few up to 1g). I haven’t had enough of it to be sure but it seems a little less strong than the premium, with less of the initial sativa-type effects. It’s still an excellent smoke, though, and absolutely amazing at this price. It’s definitely the best value for money item I’ve seen on LB, working out at around only £90 an oz! I know many people, myself included, who’ve paid a lot more for smoke that’s nowhere near this level of quality. FFS, there’s trim selling for more than this on LB! Bulldog obviously knows that he could sell these ‘budget buds’ for close to twice the price, and the fact that he doesn’t reflects his ethics and whole approach here on LB.
There’s a very high standard of care and professionalism in how BB approaches his business, from the grow through to his detailed and honest descriptions, his comms, and packaging and stealth (with the stealth being by far the best I’ve had through LB). Attention to detail from start to finish, and just ‘doing the job right’ - everything’s of the highest quality without posing, affectations or ego. It seems that BB’s very much about ‘keeping it ‘real’, and I love that a vendor who’s had to put up with so many trolls on here has stuck with it. He demonstrates his growing skills and experience - and the way he thinks things should be done - by popping up occasionally and dropping these excellent grows at amazing prices, like a fucking boss! 😂
The premium and budget are both very highly recommended. Cheers and thanks to you, BB 🙏👍👍👍
Another excellently written and comprehensive review CO, and I couldn't be more pleased that you're enjoying the smoke. 🙏
She is a very happy one this one! Really uplifts you after a hard day. I'll almost certainly grow her again as although she wasn't a great yielder, she has so many amazing qualities I can forgive that! What she did produce is quite special.
Thanks again CO, and look forward to reading more of your reviews in future.
I’m generally not a bud smoker as most of the modern grows I’ve come across aren’t to my taste, plus I like Indica Hash so anything Indica is good with me. I used to get the occasional bit of leaf way back in the day which was homegrown but done properly and certainly different from todays strains. Also your feedback seems top notch. And you seem like a decent geezer :) So I’m intrigued buddy so please add me to your list and I will deffo try some of your good looking wares 👍🏼
Totally brilliant review mate & I can concur with everything you've said about BB,his absolute professionalism being an ace grower,vendor & just an around "thoroughly bloody nice bloke"(I nicked that saying from Harry Enfields "Tim Nice-but-Dim" character)...but seriously though,BB does things properly and his approach to all aspects here on LB is precisely how all other vendors should aspire to...Ive also just received his amazing Amnesia Flash and its BY FAR one of the best strains Ive ever tried...Stunning clean giggly highs and superb body hugging stones unlike anything I had before....stealth & professionalism exactly on point....He man is a total legend....end of!!!
