Canabbis Cup 2010
Once we checked in I took the tram to the Dampkring and purchased some of their best water hash that the Dutch call “isolator”. At 60 Euro dollars a gram that works out to about 90 USD for something I make at home for free. It was pretty close to full melt though and the quality surprised me. I walked to a few other places and made small purchases and looked over the weed and saw a few hash samples I picked up from the Bush Doctor and the Rokerii. Most of the weed for sale at the shops had been scuffed meaning vibrated to remove the trichomes to make hash out of. I It’s a competitive industry there and I can’t imagine how hard it is to make it there but this practice just appalls me and other medical growers that I spoke with. Not all shops do it but based on my small tour only the prime shops like Barney’s and Grey Area do not. Both samples I saw from these shops were excellent and covered in resin.
We headed over to the expo which was held at The Power Zone on Monday and the Attitude/TGA booth was amazing and as soon as we walked up the owner gave me a huge hug and introduced me to his crew. I did the same and we went right to work with my TGA team mates pitching in to unload the thousands of t-shirts that Attitude brought to give away. MzJill and me helped set up a book stand that Attitude had found that was really snazzy and looked all space age. Within moments people were asking questions and people from all over the world were telling me that they followed my writings in High Times and many had read my book. One thing that was quickly apparent was this cup was frequented by many more Europeans than Americans. While we met our share of friends from the US we met many more from places like Norway, Italy, Sweden, France, Germany and even Africa.
