De Pijp Head Shops? Vape?

I just booked a stay in De Pijp, near Park 118.

Heard wonderful things about Katsu, but have never been there. I've been to the decent Nice Place a few times after Park 118.

I'm not going to risk bringing my well-used Pax vape through US customs to Schiphol---the residue will probably bring me some unwanted attention.

Any decent head shops in De Pijp area for some supplies? I may pipe weed outside or in coffee shops, hash in my hotel room, but for extra security, is there a low-priced "tourist" vape in Amsterdam that's decent and low-odor? I'd rather vape than get in trouble at my hotel for cannabis odor or setting off a fire alarm.

I don't vape, so I don't pay much attention, but I am pretty sure they are on a counter just to the right of the main bar at Katsu
It's a great place. Always been one of my favorites.
Gear is all pre-packaged, which I don't like, but it is quality, and reasonably priced .
They often have off-menu items--isolator, kif, odd hasj concoctions.

They are also incredibly kind if you pass out and end up in the floor.
But don't do that.
You would have to be a major dork to do something like that.

Check out the Ubie. I love my Pax and I enjoy e-pens. When I need low cost and portability I get a six pack of Ubies. Traveling with unused ones and then discard as I go. They take a little practice to use, but I have found them very practical.

Thanks, gentlemen. And yeah, I may check out the Ubie. Does it release a lot of cannabis odor?---what I like about the Pax 2 is the minimal smell it releases.

It’s not exactly a high tech device. Just something portable and discardable. Performance depends on your technique.

If you don't mind a walk to the Leidseplein area, I remember a place (one street, maybe two, over from Dolphins towards Keisersgracht) that had several vapes you could try and compare - of course, you had to bring your own herbage. I apologize for not having the name handy, but I suspect you could google it pretty easily.

I agree with you about the Pax2 being discreet odor-wise, but for the short time that I used one, I found it to be rather mild - ineffective even - compared to, say, the Crafty, which I completely love. Then again, the Crafty does let out some major clouds, so discretion might be compromised.

Since Katsu has vapes in house, could you consider "going for a walk" and just vaping there using their Volcanos? Of course, I realize you want to vape in your hotel room....interesting conundrum there! Would you consider edibles instead? Granted, Amsterdam edibles are sub-par at best, but Dolphins used to have a relatively effective space muffin. Amsterdam, unfortunately, is not regulated like the legal states in the US, so you have no idea what you're buying - and I'm convinced most of the edibles have nothing in them.

Good luck, and let us know what your solution turns out to be!

Thanks, High Clouds.

I tend to be a night smoker---to chill a bit to music and sleep. (I'm almost 60.) I did smoke weed outside when I stayed at the Piet Hein a few years ago---it was right next to Vondelpark. Then I did a toke of hash in the toilet.

Essentially, my many trips to Amsterdam tend to be culture/travel in the afternoon, sex in the evening at a prive like Park 118, a walk in the RLD at night with a stop in a coffee shop for a token toke or two with a cappuchino, and then some hash in my hotel room. (When younger, it was window girls in the day and an escort at night and maybe even a prive for three women per day---but things were a bit cheaper then and I was able to cum more.)

I know what you mean about the Pax 2, but it's actually more flavorful and potent than the Pax 1. I've never tried another vaping device.

In the past I stayed near Leidesplein and Rookies was usually my go-to on Day 1 for bullet pipes, screens, lighter, catching up on things, and picking up some weed and hash. De Pijp is a new experience, save for the basic Nice Place.

Whatever, my guess is I'll weed it outside, hash it in the hotel, and open the window and towel the door. I'm just glad Katsu and a few other places are in walking distance to my hotel---the Museumplein/Vondelpark areas have few coffee shops.

I'll do a trip report.

I hear you, NYC, we're contemporaneous in age - I have a few on you, and I totally understand the niceness of just chilling out before falling asleep.

I look forward to your trip report(s).
