Seed Shops and Tobacco
The name of this shop translates in English as "The Balloon". Het Ballonnetje is one of the oldest coffeeshops in the city, first opening its doors in 1978. So, this is a historic place. It is also one of the more quintessential Dutch establishments.
The coffeeshop has definitely been partnering with quality breeders. Likewise, they often have a menu with competition-winning selections on it. We recognize this shop as a connoisseur establishment; a distinction well deserved.
Rusland has the distinction of being the first legally-established coffeeshop in the city. It holds coffeeshop license number 001, and opened its doors on April 30, 1975. As such, this is recognized as a historic shop and one of Amsterdam's pioneers.
The decor inside Family First Coffeeshop is quite interesting and artsy. The tables are painted with colorful abstract images, which are infused with the occasional marijuana leaf. The walls are not bare, but full murals floor to ceiling.
The cannabis menu in Easy Times Coffeeshop is quite extensive. They tend to list well over a dozen strains on the flower (weed) side, typically a mix of contemporary and old school strains. Though not as extensive, their hash menu is formidable.
1e Hulp literally means "First Help". A reputation for quality cannabis has strengthened interest among visitors, who often make a special trip here. This coffeeshop is quite nicely appointed, with an ornate Arabian them throughout its three floors.
This establishment is relaxed and unpretentious in its appearance. It is also owned by the same group as Siberie, The Loft, and De Republiek. As such, expect to find a connoisseur menu here. This is one of the few shops that invest in lab testing.
Frederik Hendrikstraat 69-HS
This shop is really a take-and-go. The management has a sister bar/cafe/restaurant across the street called Kashmir Lounge, which is large, luxurious, and stunningly beautiful. If you stop here for weed, we recommend crossing the street to smoke it.
Jan Pieter Heijestraat 82
Being in Thorbecke Square, Bushdoctor Coffeeshop has access to a great deal of outdoor seating space. On sunny days, they take full advantage of it. They'll place roughly a dozen small tables outside, and enough seating for several times that number.
Mr. K Coffeeshop is found in the popular Jordaan district. They seem focused on cannabis quality here, and feature name-brand genetics on their menu. The pricing tends to be reasonable as well, as this isn't a shop that is inundated by tourists.
