Dutch Inside Out

Last night I finally decided I was going to learn how to an inside out Dutchie. I watched three videos, each of which had their own merits to get me started. Though I'd had a real live (What should we call it ? A mini-course ?) lesson (ah ha!) from someone who always rolls inside out I just couldn't seem to get the hang of it.

Here are the three videos I watched to help me finally be able to work it out.

This shows you the Dutch method using a weed + tobacco mix. He makes it look really easy.

This video is nice because they filmed it so you're not looking at a mirror image.

This video was a find because I just couldn't get the hang of rolling with my filter trip on the right hand side. I'm sure I could, but since it can be done with the filter on the left I prefer to keep it where I'm used to it.

So I rolled three last night, each slightly better in structure than the last, and this morning I woke up and just started rolling them again. I'm really trying to work out what tIhe best way to smoke is at the moment. I know lots of people are going to say get a Volcano or another sort of vaporizer, but the truth is I don't like them because I like the social aspect of passing around a joint. But that being said I'd like to quit tobacco and not weed eventually. I suppose that means either I'm going to need to find a decent tobacco substitute (which I have yet to find) or get a hand-held vape.

For the price, by far the best hand held vape on the market is the Vapir NO2. It's digital, burns hot, has great reviews (http://www.cannabisculture.com/v2/content/2010/08/02/Handheld-Vaporizers-Next-Generation), and is less than $200 bucks and I've found it in France for 155,00 euros (http://www.vaporisateur.net/vapir/62-no2-vapir-vaporisateur-digital-portable.html).

Amsterdam is ruled by either rollers, Volcanos, or Dutch glass vaporizers - so I'll have to go to a few specialty places to see what they suggest for someone who wants a portable vaporizer. Just a tip - stay away from the shops owned by coffeeshops and either try to find some cheaper Chinese shops (Zeedijk near Nieuwmarkt has a few near the temple) that sell smoker-friendly wares or check out the street markets like Albert Cuypmarkt or the Waterlooplein for bargains on papers, grinders, etc.

If you live in Paris the best place for smoker-friendly stuff is the section just before Les Puces.

If you use a vaporizer, which one?
