My boy who moved to northern cali a few years ago.. recently visited amsterdam and hit up all the hot spots.. he basically echoed the exact same things to me.. he wasn't impressed with their ganja. Said basically the same thing you are saying.. it was good.. but it wasn't as good as some stuff he's had over here and he was expecting better due to all the hype.
Just a theory but it could be due to the sheer amount of dedicated potheads we have in this country.. you grow pot here you have to do it guerrilla style. And I know cali is producing a lot of good quality shit.. a lot of it makes it over to the east coast even with our surplus of indoor growers. I'd go so far as to say the quality coming from some of these plants is due to the fact that it's illegal but in such high demand, and in some way that has resulted in better care and better genetics. Some people I've met are really serious about their strains.

i have been to amsterdam and live in n. cali. and our local dank is bomber. the dam has good weed, but nowhere near the variety of strains. they have no grandaddy purple or sour diesel as far as i saw. i have also been told that all the seed growers get clones and cross breed them to get seeds thus watering down the pure genetics, which is why cali has got better doja. the only other place that is comparable to california, weed wise is the great state of oregon. they also have some legendary smoke, and strains. my favorite strain was the super silver haze in the netherlands. they have a lot of good sativas. here in cali due to the profit motive and legal status, many grow indicas that flower faster and produce more weight in a shorter period of time. either that or 50/50 indica sativa hybrids that have a sativa high, and flower quicker and weightier like an indica.

I've been to Amsterdam three times and I live in Cali.  I can echo what most people have said... you can find good weed in either place but Cali is generally better quality.  In my experience the Cali cannabis clubs, especially the big ones, have a much bigger and higher quality selection than most touristy Amsterdam coffee shops.

I've said it many times and I'll say it again.  I :heart: Cali

And a lot of that is because here in Cali, most of the available weed is grown indoors with sophisticated setups.

i really dont agree with that at all. i mean, i would say the opposite. we have bomb ass weather (though indoor did blow up because of the war on drugs, forcing more growers to go indoors in the 80s). and what do you think they have in holland? the weather is too poor to grow outside, by far, most domestically grown bud in holland is indo.

I wasn't trying to compare our weed to that of Holland.
I was just giving a reason as to why the quality of Cali bud is so high.
I never said that Dutch weed wasn't grown indoors.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.

My impression was that a lot of the bud being exported from cali, especially northern.. is outdoors. It's still some bomb-diggity shit.

That used to be the case, but there have been massive DEA busts lately, so most of what is grown moved indoors.

You guys are all ridiculous, every one of you!

Grow your own pot if everybody is going to be so freaking picky about what they smoke or where it comes from.

The last time I smoked some local outdoor, it was "pretendica" cane weed. Looked like a nice nugget, but there was no flavor and hardly any buzz.

Good to see you again Cervantes --- cept I'm not Jim! Everybody always thinks I'm Jim..... Our names were too close and we're both a couple of hippies.




Yeah... the "pretendica" (I LOVE that term). That's the stuff. On a scale from A-F I'd give it a firm B.

Sorry, I got your name confused with another Shroomerite... but trust me, even though I got your name wrong, I knew exactly which hippie I was talking to. Sorry J.

A majority of weed that is grown outdoors in cali (the good shit) is geneticly enginnered through generations to be that good. Grow outdoors best. Highest yealds. And quickest harvest.
If it wasnt for the innovation caused my police forcing the growers in secretcy I don't think the level of mastory over marijuana would be far lower.
There are exceptions to this like back in the day strains such as Panama gold
