Tips when visiting Amsterdam Coffeeshops

The more you move out from the center, the more the price of the strains are getting lower. The shops also offer a better quality of strains and have a better-relaxed atmosphere. It can be a good idea to ask the locals some of the places to buy weed and what to buy. Always trust the locals because they definitely know better.
You can either buy joints that have tobacco and cannabis or pure joints but this can be rare to find. Pure joints usually cost higher. It is always good to know what to buy and make sure you do not go for pre-rolled joints. This is because their content is usually not what it is supposed to be. Although you can smoke weeds in the coffeeshops, you are not allowed to use normal tobacco cigarettes. That is why you do not usually see people using tobacco in public areas of Amsterdam.
