I buy ghee already made but here is a website that shows how to make it http://forum.grasscity.com/recreatio...made-easy.html
Then I use the ghee in place of butter for recipes....but usually use a little extra

Has anyone ever been to Amsterdam? We are headed there without children next June for 3 days and Im so looking forward to it. DH doesn't partake but he says he might be game for a space cake or something

We will also be spending time in Germany, anyone know anything about the laws there? As much as I know its somewhat decriminalized but at discretion based on situation <?> I have a lot of research ahead of me I think...

im so so jealous really - we live in Tokyo and the place is DRYYYYY !!! havent smoked for 2 almost 3 months and since this is my second time pregnancy i could really reallllly use a puff after putting the little charmo to sleep .
regarding Germany - i lived in Berlin about 6 years ago -its a great place!

We went to Amsterdam ~8-9 years ago. If you get there by train (incl. from the airport) I think I remember that many of the coffee shops are in walking distance. I was a little disappointed that it was mostly Americans in them but my DH learned that there's another section of town (not nearby) where the locals hang and it's the music scene, etc. Personally, I would keep the space cake away if I wasn't accustomed to getting high, it'd probably be worse than smoking it (but that's just me.) Have fun!!!

rent a bike. i think we got two of them for the week for 75-80 euro.

there are fantastic bike lanes. people know how to use their bells. there are trailers for children. the cars are courteous. it's a great way to see the city.

i wouldn't reccommend bike riding while high, in a foreign city, with kids though. if you're gonna smoke and tour...then just walk around.

red light district, anne frank haus and many other attractions were all very near each other. there are coffee shops dispersed all over the place. lots of nice restaurants. falafal carts EVERYWHERE!!!

take the train from the airport. it's easy and not a long ride at all. you may want to make sure you don't have much luggage though, as you'll have to cart it around yourself.

and i agree with a pp re: space cake. eating MJ ends up being WAY more intense. Have him eat 1/4 to 1/2 of a piece and wait 20-30 minutes to see how he feels. Especially if he doesn't usually partake.

one thing i regret? hmmmm...buying too much weed. unless you're really a connoisseur don't bother tasting every.single.strain. you won't be able to smoke it all and if you try you run the risk of burning yourself out and not seeing the sights of the city 'cuz you're too tired.

the best thing we did while we were there? a flea market a little ways out of the city. (like 10 minutes) and a small jazz fest. INFACT> make sure you find out what kind of these little events are going on...because the museums and stuff that people usually go see had long lines and were kind of boring!! but the small street shows and vendors were GREAT!

if you buy anything for consuming mj don't smoke out of it until you get it home.

make sure you try panekoken (sp? but it's dutch pancakes)

mushrooms are legal there too...just so you know!!

that's all i can think of right now. have a great time!!

Hey there. I'm back I haven't smoked in about 1.5 years, because I was pregnant and nursing a ton. But lately I've been craving the sweet mellowness that makes me a better Mama (especially when dealing with bedtimes) So I am working on getting my card!

DH is going to be my caregiver, and we're going to start growing again

We've never ordered seeds before (there never used to be an option!) does anyone have any recommendations? We're in Oregon if it makes any difference. What are the laws for ordering seeds, from say, Canada? Or should we just find a good seed bank here in the States?

We want to grow a couple indica and a couple sativa, does anyone have any recommendations/favorites?

TIA and it's so good to be back

Wow lots of great Amsterdam insight!! Thanks mama's!! I definitely want to see some sights and we have to make sure we dont miss our boat on day 3. I dont smoke a ton as is so I will definitely limit my purchases. We can book an Anne Frank tour through the cruise company... I would love to visit there as I have always felt a connection to her story...but I am TOTALLY claustrophobic!! So Im not sure I could handle it. Im also interested in touring Cannabis Castle.... I just read a short paragraph on it lastnight in my book Cannabis Trips and want to look into it more. We have been booked on this trip since March so it feels like its actually getting closer
post #269 of 319
I remember the Anne Frank museum being surprisingly bright and not-claustrophoby, but my memory kind of stinks. There are parts when you realize "whoa." and it's pretty intense, but something you gotta do. Or the Museum of Torture, oh my!

****

We live in a state that just approved medicinal m. and there's been a lot of red tape getting it through, I am relying on my DH to feel around to see what's going on, but I did find out that our locally planned dispensary is a 10 minute walk from here.

Hi guys... so I just got my BFP (I'm 4 weeks and change).

We had already booked our trip to AMS - it was a little bit of reverse psychology frankly, cause the TTC business was stressing us out.

So... I'm headed there for a long weekend with DH in about 1.5 weeks.

I'm off MJ for now (brave day one... just got my BFP on Friday.) I noticed when I had a little (like a one hitter) over the weekend I could really feel short of breath for quite a few hours afterwards. Not really short of breath, but just not normal.

So... I dunno. I'm sort of on the fence. I will probably have a nibble of a space cake while I'm there. Maybe a few nibbles far apart. I haven't hit any nausea yet.

It's just funny, really. I was sure there was no way I was going to be preg at the date of the trip cause the TTC stuff seemed to be on hold but low and behold... BFP!

We are in a medical use state also and I'm hearing some good things, so I'm considering getting a card too... We have a grow shop in town so things are coming along I picked up a free copy of an MMJ newspaper and there was this story about a guy who got 'raided' - but he was all legal with paperwork and permits and everything, and the cops just asked some questions, took some photos of the grow then left. it's about time.

i liked reading all about amsterdam, I saw a friend a few weeks ago back from university in france and she said weed in amsterdam is very expensive and hopes it doesnt become legal in canada for that reason, I thought that was interesting.

anyways, hoping mj will help me with my essays and studies

Hello ladies! I have a friend who just found out that there is no way she will have biological children. Her concern now is that her DH has a conviction for simple possession and she is afraid that will keep them from adopting. Does anyone know the answer?
post #275 of 319
Anna - , congrats!
canadianhippie - what are you in school for? Good to hear from you.

im not sure about that earthmamatobe

im enrolled as a first year student in early childhood education for my degree, then to teachers college, then highschool aboriginal education
post #277 of 319
Yeah, neither of us seems to be able to find the answer so I hoped maybe someone here knew the answer.
post #278 of 319
In some states (like here in MI) it's possible to have certain convictions expunged, that may be an option for you.

hope all are having a great end of summer, looking forward to fall & harvest time!

same here mama i am totally having MDC withdrawls... i get the sub in my email every day but it's not the same

but i do find that too much mj makes me lazy-minded and prone to surfing instead of researching like I should. I save it for after, but if you have any helpful hints on how to smoke and focus at the SAME time, that would be great!
